How did you get started in this line of work?
I started out as a dancer. After performing onstage for a while, a couple of my friends asked me if I would be willing to perform at private shows—and I have never looked back since. I have been in this line of work for close to seven years now, and I am engaged mostly for hen parties.
Do you have a “normal” office job, or is this your full-time job?
Yes I do have a normal job. I am an administrative assistant, and my workplace is near the CBD (Central Business District). Being a male stripper is merely a sideline.
Are you naturally this…outgoing?
Well, I am not exactly the most outgoing person around, though I am not shy or meek either. That being said, while you are on the job, you have to learn to let go of any inhibitions that you may have in order to provide a good show for the clients. I must say that my background as a dancer has helped me a lot in overcoming my inhibitions.
Do you enjoy your job or is it “just a job” to you?
You have to enjoy what you are doing in order to be able to provide a good show for the clients, as it will show if you do not. I must add that this is a two-way process, for if the clients are not responsive or too shy, then there is only so much that I can do. But if the clients themselves are able to let go and just have fun, then I can say that the 20 minutes I give them will be one of their most memorable.
Have you ever had to go completely buff or do you just tease?
Yes I have had to go completely buff! Basically I offer two choices: The full monty or down to my g-string. Every stage of the performance is teasing in nature, though I must say that the loudest screams usually come during the moment when I remove the first piece of my clothing, which usually is a shirt, and when it is just the g-string.
How do you keep in shape for the job?
Hitting the gym is definitely a must, and I usually go about three times per week. In addition to that, facials and body scrubs and waxing treatments are also necessary in order to keep my skin smooth, since despite what most people think, looking too much like a gorilla is not sexy at all!
What’s the wildest assignment that you’ve done?
A particular bride-to-be was one of the more sporting clients that I have encountered so far. The crowd essentially consisted of girls who were in their 20s, and who were pretty havoc. Obviously there was lots of screaming, and the bride-to-be was able to put pieces of food on my body without thinking too much of it, which basically told me that she was able to just let go and enjoy herself.
Do you have any one particular move that gets the ladies screaming?
I have the bride-to-be seated on a chair with her back facing me, such that she will not be able to see what I’m doing, though the rest of the girls will be able to. Then, I remove my shorts and dangle them in front of her. The suspense about whether I still have my g-strings on or I’m stark naked almost always gets the bride-to-be screaming.
