All Over the World
Gentlemen’s clubs have been prevalent all over the world, and a combination of influences from countries such as France, Britain, and China have transformed the club into what we all know and love today. The term “striptease” was first used in 1938, but that’s just the initial use of the word. Many experts believe that stripping for entertainment has been around for at least 400 years. In a comedy written in 1681 called The Soldier’s Fortune, one of the characters says: “Be sure they be lewd, drunken, stripping whores.” Of course, influences for these strip-dances came from other places, including a dance called the “dance of the bee,” where a woman searches for an imaginary bee trapped in her clothes and begins removing them in her search.
You may be familiar with Parisian clubs and shows of old, including the Moulin Rouge and Folies Bergère. These clubs displayed women wearing little clothing and slowly removing more as the night went on. These routines inspired other countries, including America, to adopt similar acts – one of which was quite a hit in New York in 1878. As the years went on, women in Europe began to wear less and less clothing during these shows. Finally, by the 1960’s, the “fully nude” shows began to appear in places such as Le Crazy Horse Saloon.
In Britain specifically, a wealthy and eccentric widow named Laura Henderson began providing the funding for nude shows at the Windmill Theatre in London. At the time, there was a law in place stating that naked women were not allowed to move. Because of these laws, the performers often used tricks like tableaux vivants, where they pose entirely still as if in a photo. They also began using devices like rotating ropes to move their bodies so they technically remained still. These dancers even began making “fan dances,” where one woman dances and attendants cover different parts of her body until the end of the act, where she would pose naked briefly while holding completely still.
In America, the gentlemen’s clubs began in traveling carnivals and burlesque theaters. The Minsky brothers brought their burlesque show to New York’s 42nd Street, but these theaters were prohibited from having stripteases performed due to a legal ruling in 1937. In the 1960s, these clubs began to reappear in the form of topless go-go dancers. A famous topless bar in San Francisco went bottomless as well in 1969, which launched future clubs to adopt a similar policy. In the early 1990s, the upscale gentlemen’s club was born in New York, which included a posh interior, upscale food and drink, and gorgeous women in sexy gowns.
