Gentlemen clubs in Cyprus tend to be fast paced venues, catering to a party crowd. You won’t really find the really high end gentlemen’s club style venues found in Moscow and London. This is a lot to do with the demographics of the clubs. Cyprus is a major tourist destination. The city of Ayia Napa is very popular amongst the 18-30 package holiday crowd looking for a party. Cyprus also has a number of British Army bases. Consequently, there are also always military guys on leave looking to let off some steam. The majority of clientele tend to be drunk, young guys on a night out so there isn’t the same requirements for the clubs to appeal to the older Champagne crowd. Mild winters and long hot summers mean a huge number of expats move there permanently from countries such as the UK and Germany. All in all, it is a perfect storm of potential clientele for dancers.
Summer holidays are very busy with the younger crowd wanting to tan, party and have a wild time. Many famous DJs and acts perform in Ayia Napa, as it is one of the clubbing centres along with Ibiza. Winter invites many looking to escape the cold climates of northern Europe for some winter sun. Similar to other Mediterranean countries like Portugal and Spain, golfing holidays are very popular in Spring and Autumn. Consequently, there are many people of all ages with disposable cash passing through, any time of the year and some visit the strip clubs in Cyprus.
Gentlemen clubs in Cyprus generally run on the ‘lap-dance system‘. There are many clubs on the island, relatively speaking, and a lot more girls. Dancers have to be focused and determined to keep any well paying customers.
Where dancers are from in Gentlemen clubs in Cyprus
Dancers come from all over Europe to dance in Gentlemen clubs in Cyprus. Cyprus tempts girls with the sun, the beaches, the partying and just all round lifestyle working in a destination like this can provide. The earnings aren’t as high as you could make elsewhere. However, in terms of the bigger picture, the cost of living is extremely cheap and sometimes the experience makes up for it. Cyprus is a very international island. Ultimately, only English is required within the clubs.
Prostitution is not illegal in Cyprus, however any pimping, running of a brothel or coercion is. The government cracks down on the cabarets and strip clubs in Cyprus and have done for a while. This is in an attempt to curb girls being pressured into things or trafficking. In 2006 the first prostitution-related imprisonment occurred. Authorities sentenced the owner of a strip club on the island to 15 days for profiting and encouraging the girls to engage in prostitution. The dancers often allow touching. Therefore, dancers and clientele alike are advised to check the specific rules of each venue first to ensure no awkward situations can arise.
