As a local council saves a fetish club from closure, in another part of London The Royal Standard and The Foresters Arms, two historical strip pubs, shut. RIP strip pubs? Ironic when you consider that there was a time when gay, male, fetish activity was demonised even when among consenting adults — cast your mind back to Operation Spanner in the s for instance.
What a contrast to their policy towards strip pubs. But why?
This is a venue with a sexualised theme. Well one is that the stakeholders themselves, the customers, wrote in in support of the bar concerned.
Strip pubs play a unique role and serve a diverse community. They are so under threat.
June saw two old-school strip pubs close which was sad and not just because it effectively spelled redundancy. But pubs are such a good way to deliver striptease and the vibe is so different than in a strip club. I started my dancing career in strip pubs, back when when I was a terrified but compelled newbie, sweating in my badly-applied fake tan on the train, sneaking dutch-courage whisky sips to even get there.
And what I found at the pub was a little coterie of regulars who were generally friendly, who were mostly rooting for the strippers in their own way. I still see some of those customers today, 8 years later.
With a strip pub you have stage shows for which the girls collect a pound in a jar also known as a jug collection. These performances allow the amazing pole dancers to shine, and every dancer to express her individuality. It also provides something for everyone: not every customer wants a lap dance or a VIP but still gets to see some nakedness by putting a pound in the pot for each show.

And since it is a pub, customers can just pop in for an hour, in a low-key way. And as it goes, these two venues — The Foresters in Southend and The Royal Standard in London — most recently were said to have some of the better house mums in the industry.
As have many memories of funny stripper mishaps, the community of regulars, endless banter between customers, dancers and bar staff, and the camaraderie that goes with getting naked with the same bunch of women on a regular basis.
