If you plan on hiring entertainment for your bachelor party, you should know the difference between strippers and lap dance to make sure you make the right decision. Although many people see the two types of dancers as interchangeable, there are important distinctions between an erotic dancer and a stripper, the main one being the contact that is allowed.
With strippers, clients generally cannot touch dancers other than to put money on their thongs. When a stripper performs, her purpose is usually to provoke her clients by removing their clothes slowly, as in a burlesque routine.
In lap dance, on the other hand, the dancer is usually in direct contact with the client, dancing on his lap in a suggestive way. The length of the dance is usually determined by the length of the song the dancer plays. The client is usually seated during the erotic dance routine. However, as with a stripper, at a lap dance, clients are generally not allowed to touch.
The main difference between a stripper and a lap dancer is that the lap dancer will make physical contact with the person they are dancing for, but the stripper generally will not. In both cases, girls are not allowed to touch and they usually have caretakers to make sure this rule is followed.
When you hire strippers or erotic dancers for a bachelor party, you should also be aware of the laws in your jurisdiction, especially if you are going to a strip club. Many areas prohibit erotic dance per se, which requires a certain distance between the dancer and the client. To avoid these problems, you can choose to have the bachelor party in a private home and ask the agency through which you book to send the stripper or erotic dancer to the place with your caregiver.
But before the bachelor party, you should clarify with the booking agency their rules about what they will find acceptable or not, as well as what your expectations are, to avoid problems later. For example, not all strippers will agree to completely undress, especially in a private setting. The dancer’s caregiver might also refuse to allow the dancer to perform if they see that the guests are too drunk and unruly. Keep in mind that the bottom line is that these dancers are also professionals and should be treated with respect.
