The VIP room. It is the elusive yet enticing feature that many strip clubs offer its guests for when they want special one-on-one time and attention from their favorite stripper (or strippers). Many tales have unfolded from the shadowy corners of strip club VIP rooms and each of these tales seems to express a sense of being untouchable when it comes to the rules of a strip club. It’s the true meaning of, money talks, bullshit walks. And if you have enough money, you too can become a holder of this mysterious membership. 

There are strip clubs, and then there are strip club VIP memberships, and no, they are not created equal. Imagine arriving to your favorite strip club and being whisked away to a sexy, secluded land of exquisite food, upscale drinks, and high-class strippers. The private lap-dance rooms are even more private, the managers tend to your every need, and the girls are whoever you want them to be. You are no longer just a peasant strip club patron, eagerly tossing one-dollar bills trying to get the attention of your favorite stripper. No, not even close. When you drop the big bucks on a VIP membership, you become the king of the strip club and the tables have turned. Now the strippers are eagerly trying to get your attention. In sexy VIP land, anything goes. 

I spoke to a manager of a Denver-area strip club who wished to remain anonymous, and he divulged all the juicy details of VIP room membership perks that he has learned throughout his fifteen years in the strip club industry, across numerous states in the U.S. 

“It’s all about the fantasy in the VIP areas. Some guys want a stripper who will make them the apple of her eye and pawn all over him and make him feel like she wants him more than anything in the world. Other guys just want someone to keep them company. Someone they can talk to about anything. They will pay girls just to sit there and have dinner and drinks with them. No funny business at all. And then you have the guys who are really just trying to put their dick somewhere warm. Whatever the case may be, these guys pay the big bucks to not only the strippers, but also to us as managers, and we try to accommodate them, very quietly, if need be.”  

When you become a VIP member, you’re not just paying for a private room. You’re paying for an experience that details certain perks like free admission, bottle service, seating in the VIP wing of a club, access to your favorite dancers, and managers who are willing to bend the rules for you. 

“Usually there is an annual fee that you pay to become a VIP member and it can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per year. I won’t specifically call out any of the clubs I have managed at but in many cases, yes, you get what you pay for. I mean that in every sense. You get what you pay for in terms of the VIP membership itself and you get what you pay for in terms of extra services too,” our anonymous source confesses. 

Trinity, her stripper name for a Denver-area strip club, explains that some of her best money nights have ensued behind the ropes of the VIP area. 

“One of my best customers was a sweet old guy. He just wanted my company. He would pay me $1000 each time he came in and all I had to do was eat dinner with him, fawn over him, and talk with him.”

I asked her if he ever propositioned her for sex in the VIP area and if there’s any competition from other strippers to try and win him over as their customer. 

“He always tried to convince me to go out to his mountain home for the holidays and promised me a pretty penny but, I know that comes with sex and I’m just not there yet. There’s this unspoken rule that you don’t steal another stripper’s customer. Some of the other girls think I’m crazy for passing him up and other girls agree with me because I mean, I don’t find old men sexually appealing…not that strippers have to find men to be sexually appealing to have sex with them but still, no thanks.”

Strip club VIP rooms might be a gentlemen’s playground, but make no mistake, they are a stripper’s playground too. While men commit to VIP memberships for the fantasy, strippers show up for the big money. 

Wise words from Trinity. “The VIP area is like an exciting secret. If you have money, there will always be someone who can make it happen for you.”
