2/7 - Strip Club Etiquette

Lap-dancing, extortion - and solidarity.

How should you behave in a 'gentleman's club'? From grinding the stage at super-sized American strip bars to working the pole in humble East End pubs, stripper Edie Licious has played 'em all. 

In this frank and funny interview, she tells Olly how nightclubs milk money from hapless drunk punters who pay 'VIP', explains why erotic dancing can still sometimes be erotic, and considers her future in the industry now that she's fallen in love. You'll never not tip a stripper again!

Also this episode: Ollie Peart previews the music, fashion and grub on offer at this year's biggest music festivals in The Zeitgeist. Is festival food overpriced? Is monochrome the acceptable face of tie-dye? And will he ever get tickets for Glastonbury?

Meanwhile, over in The Foxhole, Alix Fox promotes her campaign to introduce a condom emoji, and considers a question of BDSM: should a reluctant dom hit and choke his submissive girlfriend when she's specifically requested him to, but he feels uncomfortable so doing? If you have a question of sex for a future episode, just fill in our Feedback form - you can remain completely anonymous if you wish.
