Male Stripping Economics

Every now and then, I receive questions about which political party I'm affiliated with. Until now, I've kept my mouth shut on the subject because this site is about my work as a male stripper rather than a political blog. Despite this, some readers accuse me of being liberal because of my libertine behavior at the parties, or my nonchallant attitude toward gay people and whether they can marry or not. A few have suggested that I'm conservative because I mentioned about carrying a gun everywhere. The truth is, I'm a bit of both.

So who am I voting for? Ron Paul. Ron Paul understands economics and the free market. In fact, he's written several books on the subject, especially regarding Austrian economics.

First of all, the type of male stripping I do stems from a pure free market approach. There are no regulations, Washington beauracrats, or I.R.S. involved. It's just my agent as the mediator, me, and the customers. All of the money the customers pay goes to me and my agent. If I'm acting as my own agent, I get the money. The price of my services, or the price my agent charges is set by the market competition. If another agency wants to compete with us and only charges $150 for their strippers, my agent has to match or beat their prices to remain competitive.

As for regulations, stripping doesn't need them. If a male stripper just outright sucks, the customers complain to the agent and he fires the stripper. If he doesn't fire the stripper, then the agency's reputation is at stake. Therefore, it's the free market that automatically regulates the economy for stripping.

I have been stripping on and off for almost ten years, and I must say that from personal experience, this system works like a charm. It expedites every process from hiring to payment.

So there you have it. That's one reason why I support Ron Paul, since most other politicians (Republicans and Democrats together) prefer Keynesian economics, which has utterly failed the country since 1913. I don't always agree with Ron Paul, but I know he's the only one up there running who isn't full of shit either. Working as a male stripper, I'm used to feeding crowds of women lines of bullshit that they want to hear. When I watch Obama, McCain, Santorum or Romney give speeches, I notice that a lot of what they say is geared towards appeasement of their crowd--something that I do when going to parties. I tell parties of girls how great they are, how they are the best group of girls, or the prettiest, because that is what they want to hear. Is it true? No. They would hate me if I told the truth. Imagine a crowd's reaction if I told them that they were boring and fat if it were the truth. They would hate me. Therefore, if I perform for a party of boring, unattractive girls, I feed them lines of bullshit about how awesome they are. After doing this for years on end, one develops a pretty good radar when it comes to detecting someone else's bullshit.

That said, I don't sense such bullshit from Ron Paul. Perhaps that is why a lot of people can't stand him. No one likes cold, hard facts, especially when they don't sound good. I hope this answers those questions about politics, and clears up where I stand.


  1. It's spelled nonchalant, not non-challant

  2. And I guess I can sort of see your point...I honestly don't know if voting for Obama or voting for Ron Paul (the Republican) would be the worse choice.

  3. Thanks. I'll make a post about spelling mistakes. If you see them, please feel free to correct them since I do little proofreading whatsoever.

  4. Hey Dion. It makes total sender that you would vote Paul. He is probably the only candidate in the republican roster who would not have a problem about your profession. He is all about personal liberties and letting people decide for themselves without influence of government. Although he is the oldest candidate running, I ironically believe he is the future of the republican party because I believe younger republicans will place a smaller emphasis on religion. Personally, I'm torn between Santorum and Romney. I like that Santorum is a true conservative, but I think mitt will do a much better job running this country and has a better shot of winning against Obama...assuming the economy tanks. Hey Dion, since we are talking about politics and economics, how has the recession affected your profession as a dancer?

  5. Great post, Brian. I think Ron Paul will influence the next generation of voters, but we need that influence now. As for the recession, it has hurt the profession a little. But when people are willing to have fun, they'll spend the money if they have it.

    1. Interesting that we are discussing the economics of stripping. Funny topic and thanks for the incite. I agree that the republican party needs reform, which many in the right are suggesting that we get younger guys into office sooner rather than later. Btw, I like Ron's son, rand Paul. He does a lot of "damage control" and clarifies many of Ron's statements. what do you think of the accusations that claim Ron is racist? There is a lot odd damning evidence.

  6. Hey Brian, I'm a little late in answering this, so I apologize. I like Rand Paul and would love to see him run in 2016. I really didn't care about this year's election since there was little difference between Romney and Obama.

    Regarding the accusations that Ron Paul is racist, I met the guy and saw many blacks, Hispanics, Asians, etc. among his supporters. I don't think he's racist, but even if he were, his personal views are pro-personal liberty. Besides, the term "racist" is thrown around so casually and willingly now that it's a wonder that anyone escape its label.
