Guide and advice to Strip Clubs in Italy.
Many of the Strip Clubs in Italy have a good focus on the stage shows and the also often book in Italian Porn Stars as featured entertainers, or sexy stars as they call them in Italy.
Same style as they do in America. The Gentlemen clubs in Italy are also based on commission from Champagne and table dances. Doing private shows is also an important part of the concept here and Italian men expects a lot in the private rooms, so dancers wanting to work here, should be aware off this. The dancers are expected to do a more sexual private show in Italy, compared to other European Gentlemens Clubs. You will find the most Strip Clubs in Milano, but there are also Lapdancing Clubs or sexy disco`s in several other Italian citys, like Palermo and Roma. There are also Italian TV shows broadcasted from some of the clubs.
Italy is renowned for beauty and sex appeal. Therefore, this attitude to life means that there are many strip clubs in Italy to choose from. Italy is not a huge stag party destination. It attracts more families and couples. As a result most of the clientele in strip clubs in Italy tend to be locals. There are, however, a number of military bases located here. For example, on the island of Sicily, there can be high concentrations of foreign military frequenting the clubs because of a NATO base on the island.
Lapdancing clubs in Italy run on the 'Champagne system
'. There is the expectation for customers to buy the ladies drinks and bottles as well as buying private shows. There is one big difference between Italy and many other European cities that work on the Champagne system. This is the focus on feature performers and showgirls. It is a system that occurs a lot in countries such as the US, Australia and Canada but very rarely in Europe.
The showgirls, generally, already have a profile (often in the porn industry) and a lot of the club marketing will revolve around who is appearing next.
Consequently, there are Italian agencies that will bring high profile performers from overseas to appear in Italian clubs. Club dancers will need knowledge of the Italian language in order to work in most places in Italy. Otherwise, they will struggle.
Prostitution is legal in Italy and often rife in the clubs. Even if there is no prostitution, per se, private shows in Italy can get a bit full on and there is the expectation from clients. As a result, dancing in Italy should be approached with this knowledge.
As the strip clubs in Italy are a little more extreme, there is a negative attitude to dancers. Religion has a huge impact in this country. A common thought process is, there is no differentiation between striptease and prostitution. This is likely to do with the fact that the lines can blur a lot in strip clubs in Italy.
Locations of strip clubs in Italy
Strip clubs in Italy are very diversely spread across the country. The city with the highest concentration is, surprisingly, not Rome, the capital. It is, in fact, Milan, in the very north of the country close to the Swiss border. It is Italy's second biggest city with half of Rome's population at 1.3 million people. That, and slightly smaller tourist numbers than the capital, however, doesn't stop Milan being the hub of the striptease industry in Italy.
