… I considered it a performance art as well as a decadent pleasure (indicative of the fall of the American empire, I’m sure). Some things I had not noticed before: Always be the first patron to tip the girl on the dance stage. They really appreciate it because it breaks the ice for the other ‘gentlemen’ to tip and she’ll put on a much better show since she still has most of her clothes on and can actually strip for you. Also, try to pick out two girls who are likely lovers and pay them both for table dances at the same time. Following these two rules made me feel less like a sexually depraved urchin and more like a connoiseur of an art.
