My wife and I are in Montreal, Canada for the weekend. It has become a bit of a ritual for us during trips to Montreal – go out for a nice dinner and then go to one of Montreal’s world-famous strip clubs. For a couple trying to keep fun and sexiness in their relationship, I highly recommend it.
Montreal is a city known for its liberal, European flair. People dress stylishly and eat dinner at 9pm; coffee shops serve deep, rich espresso; and people are very comfortable with sex and sexuality.
And their strip clubs are unique and fantastic… especially if you are looking for a classy, comfortable erotic experience.
I can appreciate that, for many people, taking your partner to a strip club is not at the top of your ‘classy date’ list. I beg you to reconsider – providing you can find the right strip club.
What makes a good date strip club… and why is Montreal our favourite strip club city?
The club has to feel like an upscale, yet intimate venue. Two of our favourite Montreal clubs – Club Wanda and Kamasutra – are smallish (space for about 100 patrons) and beautifully decorated. Kamasutra has a deep velvet maharajah theme (a little cheesy but it is nicely done) and Club Wanda is more business professional with large sofas throughout the club. Club Wanda actually has a 5 star restaurant attached, if you want a nice steak dinner before or after your visit. Compare this to many other strip clubs in other cities that are either dirty little holes in the wall or massive industrial ‘strip factories’.
The dancers must be happy. I should have put this first… In my opinion the single biggest contributor to a happy, fun night at a strip club is the vibe the dancers are putting out. There is nothing sexier than an energetic, happy, enthusiastic dancer who is making a good living in a comfortable and respectful work environment. You can’t fake this and the clubs that do not provide this are just sad places to be. For a really insightful article on the struggle many strippers have, read this great New York Times article.
Couples must be made to feel comfortable there. I suspect it is because of Montreal’s liberal sexual politics, but we have found that strip clubs in Montreal (i) often have other couples there… which is nice because even in a nice environment it is easy to feel self conscious if you are the only non-dancer female in the place; and (ii) have dancers who clearly enjoy performing for women and couples.
Find these conditions and you have the recipe for a fun, sexy date. Last night, we arrived relatively early, before the club got too busy. We watched a few dances by beautiful and talented women. We were then approach by a gorgeous olive-skinned woman with bright engaging eyes. She introduced herself and we all chatted for 10 or so minutes about anything from summer travel plans to sexual politics. My wife was clearly smitten with both her appearance, her intelligence and her energy…me too! She then asked if we wanted a dance – We proceeded to 20 minutes of the most sensual, stimulating private dance you can imagine. Shortly thereafter, my wife and I headed back to our hotel for the hottest, fantasy-filled sex you can imagine.
A great night… and one I would highly recommend to any other adventurous couples out there.
