We all love it when our partner surprises us with something sexy and sensual. Your girlfriend giving you a special, personal strip tease? Yes please! But did you know women love it just as much if you strip for them? Here’s a quick and easy guide on how to strip for your girlfriend.

Women love male strippers just as much as men love female strippers, if not more. Just look at the success of Magic Mike. There are some big differences between a male and female strip tease. These differences are the sort of things you’ll need to put into consideration before you get down and dirty for your lady.

Don’t worry though, it’s a lot easier than it sounds. Planning is the key to success, and don’t feel shy to practice by yourself before the big event. A strip show for your girlfriend is a great gift idea for a birthday or anniversary, or if you just want to surprise her and spice things up in the bedroom.

Getting into character

Unlike female strippers who are often just in lingerie, male strippers are often dressed up as fantasy characters. Not Lord of the Rings fantasy, although you can try that if you want. More common and popular costumes include the fireman, the cowboy or a policeman. If you don’t want to buy a whole new outfit, just get a shirt and cardigan and be a “naughty teacher” or wear your suit and be the boss.

Depending on who your character is, your routine may change. The characters don’t have their own special moves or anything, but you can certainly get creative with them. Taking off a helmet sexily, or spanking yourself with a ruler, these are all fantastic ways to really add oomph to your strip.

Your character might also dictate what music you choose. Now the music is important because your whole routine will be based off that. You can go full theme, or you can just pick something chill and sexy. Check out the Magic Mike playlist for ideas.

The dance moves

The dance moves which you can do in random orders or repeat are all very easy. They’re about emphasizing the body parts of a man that women love. Your arms, your abs, your butt etc etc.

Practice doing a body roll when you unbutton your shirt. A body roll is like doing a caterpillar but standing up. Sprinkle body rolls around your routine. With practice, you can do these standing up, sat down, or even horizontal over your girlfriend. The video linked above is a body wave, but it’s the same idea. You don’t need to be quite as liquid as he is in the video.

Twerking isn’t just for the ladies. Women love men’s butts. So shake it up, turn around and twerk it. Bring on the full sass and just go to town with your buns. If you can’t do a proper twerk, then just an enthusiastic butt shake will work!

If there’s anything women like more than men’s butts, it’s probably the front part. Pelvic thrusts are a must in the male strip tease. They might seem the most embarrassing but embrace that and thrust away. What’s more sexual than an actual sex move?

Make sure that as you dance and remove your clothes to change the pace of the clothing removal. Take your time undoing buttons, then quickly rip off velcro tear-away trousers. Slowly slide at your underwear before wildly swinging them around your fingers. There’s no right or wrong way of doing this!

Have fun

The most important part is to make sure you have fun. Yes, it’s going to be embarrassing. You might not look as sensuous as Channing Tatum, but that doesn’t matter. The fact that you want to do something special for your girlfriend, that you would do something out of your comfort zone for her pleasure, that goes a long way.

So have as much fun with it as you can, and she’ll have fun too. Practice as much as you need to before hand. If you do it genuinely, then even if you trip, or forget the moves, it doesn’t matter.
