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 the Right Strip Club
First, pick the right club. For most women going to a strip club for the first time you should pick a club that’s not only 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 females or couples in the audience.
The best stage show of the Vegas strip clubs is at Palomino, a top Vegas nude club (club website), with outstanding pole dancing, girl on girl shows, and striptease with an emphasis on the tease—like an erotic Cirque show. Little Darlings, a Vegas nude club that admits couples age 18+ (club website), is a close second.
But some wives and girlfriends go into this experience already fantasizing primarily about high-contact lap dances or private shows with dancers. Sapphire (club website) and Deja Vu Showgirls Vegas (club website) are high-mileage topless clubs with dancers who are good at entertaining couples.
And some clubs like Club Lacy’s (club review), an urban club, specialize in throwing a party, where both male and female guests enjoy the show, get lap dances, and laugh and flirt with the dancers and each other. These can be a great evening for a couple coming to a strip club together for the first time.
How to Connect with the Dancers as a Couple
Many dancers at most Vegas strip clubs will not automatically approach a couple the way they will a table of guys. That’s because they know the female half of the couple may feel uncomfortable about being approached.
That means you may have to make the first move to let the club’s dancers know you want to be approached.
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. If you like the dancer, tell her you’d like a couple’s dance after her stage routine.
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. Let the club’s hosts and/or cocktail waitresses know you’d like to have dancers or a particular dancer come over. They’ll help out.
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 once they know she’s open to it.
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. They’ll usually start the dance by focusing 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 a 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 their guests 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.
But dancers at most clubs are independent contractors free to set their own prices. That means you’ll occasionally run into a dancer who will charge more (typically 50% more) for a couple’s dance.
The standard charge for a lap dance at the major Vegas strip clubs is $20, whether it’s for a single customer or couple. Most lap dances take place out on the main club showroom. The exception is Little Darlings, where every lap dance is fully nude and takes place in a private room.
If you can afford a little more to treat yourself, couples’ private shows start at $100 at Palomino Club for a fully-nude 10-minute dance in a private booth with an opaque curtain across the door. A fully-nude private-bedroom couple’s show at Little Darlings starts at 15 minutes for $125. A private room dance at Deja Vu (with your choice of couch or full-sized bed) starts at $150 for 15 minutes—and at Deja Vu the elegant private rooms have a real door you can close behind you.
If you really want to splurge, consider an erotic fantasy hour with a dancer at Sapphire in one of the club’s elegant Skyboxes, again with a real door you can close behind you ($800). Sapphire’s Skybox private dances feature unsurpassed elegance, privacy, service, and dancer selection.
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. I consider packages for couples more important than packages for guys going solo to a club.
That’s because the best clubs fill up at peak hours. If you don’t have a package with a reserved table, you may have a hard time finding a place to sit down together when you return from a private show. That’s not conducive to an erotic date. When you’re entertaining your wife or girlfriend, you want to treat her right.
For example, Sapphire’s couples packages start at $165 and include $169-$189 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. You can also get a special Valentine’s Day package at Sapphire.
My wife enjoys this elegant club with its shows on three stages and erotic lap dance scene. And packages offer additional value. When you’re sitting at a VIP table with a bottle of champagne on your table, it’s like a magnet for the club’s prettiest dancers.
Palomino Club 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.
Deja Vu offers a Couples Therapy package for $225 that includes free limo transport, free admission for two, a VIP table and line passes, a bucket of beer and a bottle of Moet Nectar Imperial.
And if you can live without booze, Little Darlings offers an $89 Couples Package that includes free limo transport, free admission for two, a VIP table, and a bottle of no-alcohol champagne.
