It’s Valentine’s Day and suddenly TVO’s article on couples- and female-friendly Vegas strip clubs is the most popular page on this site.
If you’re considering going as a couple to a Las Vegas strip club tonight, and you’ve never done this before, here are a few tips to make the experience one you’ll both remember fondly.
Choose a Strip Club with a Great Stage Show
First, pick the right club. Not only should you pick a club that’s welcoming to couples and female guests, you should pick a club with a great stage show.
A strip club with an excellent stage show is like a nightclub with risque entertainment–an easy transition for most women. A club that is focused predominantly on lap dancing may make your wife or girlfriend feel uncomfortable if it’s her first time to a strip club, and will usually have few (if any) females or couples in the audience.
Connect with the Dancers as a Couple
Start by sitting on the rail and tipping the dancers. Split up your tip money so that both of you can show your appreciation for the stage dancers. Right away, my wife loved tipping the dancers for beautiful and sexy performances. The stage dancers will come over to give you extra attention, and that’s not only fun, but can be a bridge to a couple’s lap dance later.
After sitting at the stage and tipping for a while, try going to a table to enjoy a drink with each other and make it easy for dancers to approach you. If a dancer sits down to talk with you, and you’re enjoying the conversation, offer her a drink. It’s a great way to break the ice and increase your wife’s comfort level with dancers.
Most Las Vegas strip club dancers are easy conversationalists, and will go out of their way to be warm and friendly with your wife or girlfriend.
If the dancer offers a lap dance or private show, let your wife be the one to decide. If your wife encourages you to get a lap dance or offers to buy you one, ask her to accompany you for a couple’s dance.
Couples’ Lap Dances and Private Shows
If your wife is anything like mine, and you invite her to join you for a lap dance or private show, she’ll say “No, no, no, I want you to enjoy a dance. I’ll wait here and watch the show.” If you explain to her that a private dance is just another kind of show, she’ll be more likely to come with you and enjoy the experience.
Dancers who approach couples to offer private dances are good at taking control of the situation. Most of their early attention will likely be focused on your wife or girlfriend. The dancer will want to make her feel comfortable, and get her enjoying the dance, before she starts paying any attention to you. She will likely do anything to avoid any situation where your wife is sitting there feeling left out.
When the dancer moves her attention from your wife to you, she’ll keep checking in on your wife, or talking to her and joking with her. In my experience, most dancers are people who really care about making the people they’re entertaining happy.
The first time my wife and I enjoyed a couple’s dance together, my wife thought she was buying me a private dance. When I asked her to come with, she assumed she’d be sitting on the sidelines watching the dancer entertain me. But the minute we sat down in the private room, the dancer went straight to my wife. That surprised my wife so much that she laughed. The three of us spent a lot of our time in that room laughing.
I enjoyed watching the dancer give attention to my wife. It was a combination of erotic and amusing. I enjoyed watching my wife’s reactions. When the dancer moved to caress my wife’s face with her titties, the look on my wife’s face made me laugh.
The dancer was so sweet and smiling that my wife gave up trying to resist. She told me after that she had never realized before how soft a woman’s skin is. She said the dancer’s touch had felt genuinely affectionate and moving. She said she felt gratitude to the dancer. I told her it feels the same for guys.
My wife also told me that the parts of the dance that had turned her on most were the moves and moments that she knew, as my wife, were most turning me on. She said she got turned on most vicariously through me.
It was an excellent experience, and each time since has been different and special. I highly recommend it as a romantic, erotic experience for couples.
Vegas Strip Club Lap Dance Prices for Couples
The norm in Vegas is that the price of a lap dance or private show for a couple is the same as a lap dance or private show for a single customer.
The idea is that you’re paying for the dancer’s time. You’re not paying per person.
However, strip club dancers have recently won a lot of lawsuits that clarify their status as independent contractors. The rulings mean that it’s the dancer, rather than the club, that sets the price of a lap dance or private show.
That means, in theory, that every dancer can set whatever price she wants, including a different price for couples than for a single customer. But in practice, the competition between dancers tends to keep prices from veering too far from the norm.
The best way to avoid either overpaying or getting into extended negotiations with dancers is to ward off negotiations in the first place. See How to Negotiate Prices in a Vegas Strip Club for tips that work.
I believe in being generous with dancers. It isn’t easy to perform at a top level night after night. And erotic dance is a high-level art form. So be generous, but also be informed.
I think you’ll have a great time.

Vegas Strip Club Couples’ Packages
Be sure to check out the special couples packages offered by some of the couples-friendly Vegas strip clubs. For example, Sapphire’s couples packages start at $165 and include $169 in liquor if you buy online plus the club’s royalty treatment–free limo transport to the club, free admission, a line pass and a reserved VIP table. These features have real value at this club where the lines can get long at peak hours and it can be impossible to find a seat without a reserved table.
My wife enjoys this elegant club with its shows on three stages and erotic lap dance scene.
Palomino Club is another excellent strip club for couples (and my wife’s other favorite), with a stage show like a naked Cirque show. Palomino offers a package for two for $170 with your choice of a half bottle or champagne plus a pitcher of beer, free limo transport, free admission, a line pass and a reserved VIP table. Again, these features have real value at this popular club, which gets packed at peak hours.]
