If strip clubs are your thing then Moscow is the right city to come to. And even if not, it is still the right city to come to and try them out. While some of you are probably already strip club veterans, others might have never stepped foot into a gentlemen’s club.
Either way, there are a few differences between strip clubs in Moscow and strip clubs in other cities. I can speak only for Europe in the US, so leave a comment if you find more differences!
1. You get full nudity
Moscow strip clubs are not the chicken shit version, where you have to secretly pull up Pornhub on your phone because you don't get the whole package. Girls take off all their clothes here. Naked Russian girls will make most men very happy but even more so will no.2 on this list…
2. You can touch the girls
If you’re from the US, that’s going to be a big one for you. You absolutely can touch the dancers anywhere, except where you'd probably like to touch them the most. That’s part of their “sales pitch” to you. You probably still don’t want to be too much the eager beaver and squeeze her (fake) boobs like they're the first ones you’ve ever seen.
3. Prices are pretty much the same like in normal nightclubs
In Moscow, unlike in other major cities, you won't have to throw down tons of money in the gentlemen’s club just to have a drink or two. Strip clubs are pretty much in line with regular Moscow nightclubs regarding drinks prices. The fancier the club, the higher the prices are going to be but it’s never a rip-off.
4. They serve alcohol
In Europe this isn't a problem as far as I know but some American states dare to deny you booze in the clubs. No worries about that in Moscow. Just like to a normal club, you probably should not come absolutely shitfaced. I’ve been plenty of times stone cold sober too. Watching sexy Russian girls dance for you is pretty good entertainment already.
5. The girls are working girls
I mentioned this one already in my Moscow Strip Club Guide. In a lot of other countries you might or might not want to get more action from the girls. You might even get it offered to you for outrageous prices. In Moscow that’s standard procedure and everyone's in on it, which in a way makes everything more relaxed. No one will try to shake you down but the girls are friendly to you for a reason, so always be aware of that.
6. You get a different kind of diversity
When an American hears diversity he’ll automatically think White, Black, Latina, Asian. So Russia doesn’t have that, right? Wrong! Russia is a very diverse country and a strip club is just about the best place to catch up on your poor knowledge of all the ethnicities that the Russian Federation is made up of. Slavic, Tatar, Caucasus, Central Asians or Asian Russians…the list goes on and on. If you’re curious about how they all look like, it’s time to get your ass over here.
7. The atmosphere is less sleazy
Being in a strip club will always make some people feel uncomfortable. But that’s because they feel uncomfortable being around lots and lots of beautiful women (and most girls in Moscow strip clubs are). In general though, the big Moscow strip clubs have a much friendlier and more relaxed atmosphere to them. You never have the feeling that you’re in a place where you shouldn’t be. Quite the opposite, you begin asking yourself why you’re not there more often. Well, maybe you should be…
