Strip clubs are a popular form of adult entertainment in the United States. But how might strip clubs effect a relationship? I started thinking about this after a conversation with a friend the other day. My friend recently began dating a new man. She thinks he is a great guy, has a blast spending time with him, and has a passionate and strong sexual connection with him! All sounds perfect for the beginning of a relationship right? Well, for her…wrong! She is having an issue with the frequency at which he goes to strip clubs! According to him, he goes because the guys at the office including his boss, enjoy going. He does admit that he enjoys it as well, but says he wouldn’t go if it wasn’t because his co-workers and boss. My friend went on to say that she did communicate with him about her discomfort with the frequency of his going. She is actually a pretty sexually open woman and would not mind him occasionally going—like for a bachelor party or other special occasion. She went on to tell me that she loves being sexual with him and in fact they have intercourse or other sexual play several times a day (as often as she can see him). So, is this a problem especially given the freshness of their relationship? What do you think—is it ok for your partner to go to, or even frequent, a strip club? How do you feel about this issue?
