Ladies, here is the (softcore) video for you! Who among you hasn't seen the fabulous Chippendales? Well, how about seeing some ex-Chippendales perform for your own personal enjoyment as they never could before? That's the whole intent of this interesting tape, and it works marvelously!
The writer, producer, director and main actor in this feature is John Stagliano. But while his stage performance as Count Dracula may not cause your temperature to rise as quickly or as high as seeing others in his troupe, he has certainly written some charming and revealing material. Basically, the viewer is treated to both a genuine performance of male strippers, and candid interviews with each, conducted by hardcore star Jacqueline Lorians. The only criticism I have of this production is the disconcerting leaps back and forth between performance and interview, especially if you're just starting to groove with the versatile, virile abdominal muscle movement.
Performance-wise, it's a toss-up who's best. I particularly like the finale, performed by the show's MC (Jason Voyeur), who not only strips but does a fire-eating act as well. As a dancer, he's beaten by dark and muscular St. Flipper (Don Cambellock), James and Bruce Kirk. Our poor director finishes a close fifth, but even he is worth watching, especially as he plays with his chains. So, ladies, for the enjoyment of a male strip club without the embarrassment of being seen sweating in public, this is the tape for you.
