I didn’t think most women had strippers at their bachelorette parties.  I honestly thought that was just something they showed on TV as the cliche.

Do you know who is hosting the bachelorette?  Is it her or one of her friends?  Maybe you can get in touch with a friend to see if that’s what they plan on doing.

Maybe just don’t get out-of-control drunk either way, I mean -if you don’t totally feel comfortable/ or do not know what could happen.  Maybe just take it easy, have fun, but stay clear-headed so that you can leave if you feel uncomfortable.

A stripper isn’t going to latch onto you or anything, if you’re not interested and there is one there, he/she isn’t going to do anything if you’re saying no. Seriously, strippers are people too.

I understand being uncomfortable with strippers, or not agreeing with it or whatever, but is that really enough of a reason to miss out on what will otherwise probably be a really fun party? I would just bring a book or something to keep occupied, and if a stripper shows up, slip away into the bathroom, or outside until they’re gone. It won’t take up the entire evening. Anyway, I think it’s pretty unlikely that any strippers would be involved. I think I speak for a lot of women when I say male strippers are kind of icky.

personally, i think if the thought bothers you that much you shouldn’t go. if i knew someone was having strippers at their party i would decline to attend. firstly, because it would be offensive and secondly, i wouldn’t surround myself with people who prefered this sort of “low-level” entertainment. nothing good comes of “people” who take off their clothes for money. and most “strippers” do a lot more than take their clothes off anymore. prostitution has moved off the streets and into strip clubs.

i’d pass…

@ijustrockout: I like how you put the word people in quotation marks like somehow strippers aren’t really people because of what they do for a living.  That’s an awfully high horse you’re on.

@ijustrockout:

Wow. As someone that DOES take her clothes off for a living (but not in a strip club) I just want to say. I AM a person 😛 *I dare anyone to flag this post. I consider it self defence from an attack on and defenation of my character based on prejudice of my career choice.

@ijustrockout: Harsh.  I’m not the biggest fan of male strippers, but I’ve definitely been to Chippendales type shows and had a blast.  I certainly wouldn’t consider it “low level” entertainment or prostitution.

I would honestly not worry about it. Male strippers are kind of gross (not as in the person is gross, but looking at a mostly nude guy who isn’t Fiance is gross), and I’m sure she won’t have one. If she does, then you can just disappear for awhile since it makes you uncomfortable.

I think if a stripper is a deal breaker for you, you should ask the host if they will have strippers. Then, if you’re told no and one shows up, have an exit strategy – this may mean not drinking. Do you want to drink more or avoid a stripper more?

@ijustrockout: This was uncalled for, and you should probably look up how to use quotes.

If one shows up and you’re uncomfortable maybe step outside, have Fiance on call for a chat while the stripper is there.. take a drink with you and just go back in when the show is over 🙂

@MsCricket:

Awww thanks Hun. I didn’t see Melissa’s post so they may have removed it. A mod definately removed a part of my post but I’m a big girl and I stand by my original comment. Lol. Thanks for the support ladies!
