Erotic in London
|| Adult fun takes
on an altogether classier guise with the choices of venues
available in London, so leave the sleaze behind and head
to a discreet and modern venue.
Soho is the undisputed adult capital of the UK and if
you’re looking for bookshops, lap dancing clubs
and alternative bars, you’ll find all your heart
If you fancy a night of pure indulgence head to Stringfellows [map] ,
Upper Saint Martin’s Lane, Covent Garden. The
world-famous club has a reputation for offering a top
night out and a genial host – Peter Stringfellow
– who can often be seen mingling with celebrity
With more than 100 girls to choose from For Your Eyes
Only [map] is the premier hangout for erotic dancing in North West
London. The Park Royal venue, NW10, also boasts a bar
and a VIP area. The refurbishment of the club means that
girls now have extended stages and podiums from which
to entertain audiences every night from 8.30pm.
If you’d like to provide some home entertainment
for your partner then head to the London School
of Striptease [map] . Classes cover beginner’s
pole dancing moves and those who know a little more about
the fine art in three-hour sessions.
There are also pole-dancing classes at the Basement
Dance Studio [map],
North London. Here you could gain the skills to recreate
the lap dance experience in your own home (or someone
else’s if you so desire). The classes are open to
anyone who’s willing to put in the muscle clenching,
sweat inducing work.
Women wanting to spice up their wardrobe can visit Sh!! in Islington. This sex shop should stock whatever
you want to at least make a start on fulfilling your fantasies.
Men are only allowed in when accompanied by a woman so
you should be able to relax, take your time and get everything
you need with discretion.
Head to one of the capital’s oldest established
gentlemen’s clubs, Browns located in East
London. Although you don’t need to pay to get in,
you will need to dress to fit in with the City suits that
frequent the venue.
With multiple floors of non-stop striping and table-dancing
you should find Metropolis [map] a stimulating experience. But all this action doesn’t
come cheap as you will need to pay to get in and then
pay again to get to other floors. The luxury lady lounge
also has a VIP area for high rolling titillation seekers.
See a different kind of royalty in South West London at
the alternative Windsor Castle [map],
Harrow Road, Westbourne Park, SW1. This topless club has
lots of attractive staff who are all trained dancers.
There’s a stage for real show-offs and a full restaurant
and bar for a unique dining experience.
The respectable side of erotica is alive and gyrating
in West London with the many lap and table dancing clubs
on offer. If you fancy visiting one of the biggest and
best clubs in the area head to Secrets [map],
Glenthorne Road, Hammersmith, W6. Secrets has a reputation
for quality and this flagship club leads the way that
the other four in London follow. All the staff here are
very professional and discreet and dancers are very attractive.
One club that has built up a big celebrity following is Spearmint Rhino [map],
Tottenham Court Road, W1. The American super-club continues
to build up a strong reputation and this is particularly
attributed to the fact that it has a license for fully
nude dancers. Like Stringfellows, this place is popular
with both male and female guests who are keen to soak
up the fun “anything goes” atmosphere.
You’d be surprised at how many top London actresses
of yesteryear began their careers at The Windmill [map],
Great Windmill Street, W1, which has been around for years
although has enjoyed a number of big revamps. There’s
still the nude revue and novelty of more than 60 girls
dancing simultaneously and constantly but many people
now visit for an unusual dining experience and a large
slice of nostalgia.
