Adult Entertainment in Manhattan NY

Many ask what is a lap dance. A lap dance is an adult entertainment consisting of a specific type where of sex dance offered in some strip clubs or gentlemen's clubs in which the client is seated, and the dancer is either in immediate contact with the client, or within a very short distance. Depending on the local standards, lap dances can involve touching of the dancer by the patron, the patron by the dancer, neither, or both; the dancer may be topless or fully clothed. Variant terms include couch dance which is a lap dance where the customer is seated on a couch, and bed dance where the customer lies down. A block session (usually half an hour to an hour) can be booked in the champagne room, where the dancer and the patron talk in an intimate setting and drink champagne together. The girl/guy might perform lap dances too, depending on the client's wishes. Read more

In many clubs the duration of a lap dance is measured by the length of the song being played by the club's DJ. Charges for lap dances vary. Sometimes sexual partners will perform lap dances for their partners as a teasing kind of foreplay.

Full-contact lap dances often involve intense frottage where the stripper may rub her lap or private parts against the client's. In some cases, any touching by the patron is forbidden.

It has been alleged that lap dancing club owners, by installing dark private booths and charging dancers steep stage fees, are covertly condoning and encouraging sexual acts between customers and dancers.

Striptease as an Adult Entertainment

A striptease or exotic dance is a form of adult/erotic entertainment, usually a dance, in which the performer, known as a "stripper", gradually undresses to music. Stripteases are now performed mostly in strip clubs. The "teasing" part involves the slowness of undressing, while the audience is eager to see more nudity. Delay tactics include additional clothes being removed or putting clothes or hands in front of just undressed body parts. Emphasis is on the act of undressing along with sexually suggestive movement, rather than the state of being undressed. In the past the performance often finished as soon as the undressing was finished, though today striptease artists usually continue dancing whilst in a state of nudity.

Though today, the stripper often ends the performance almost nude (full nudity is illegal in New York). For instance in some parts of the USA there are laws forbidding the exposure of female nipples, which have thus to be covered by pasties by the dancer (though no such taboo applies to the exposure of male nipples). Shoes - often high heeled - are usually kept on, for practical and aesthetic reasons. The costume the stripper wears before disrobing can be an important part of the act. These are often fantasy themed: such as a schoolgirl uniform, maid's dress, policewoman's outfit etc.

Along with physical attractiveness and appropriate clothing, the main asset and tool used by the exotic dancer in recent years is the stripper pole.

In addition to night club entertainment, stripping can be a form of sexual play at home between partners. This can be done as an impromptu event or — perhaps for a special occasion — with elaborate planning involving fantasywear, music, special lighting, practised dance moves, and even dance moves that have been previously unpractised.
