A man has been lying to his wife, secretly going out at night to exotic dance clubs, hobnobbing with strippers, and getting lap dances, which he thinks are “innocent” and “harmless.” He enjoys this secret world, finding it sexually arousing and pleasurable. However, when his wife discovers his actions, she becomes enraged, hurt, and devastated. He may potentially lose his marriage, home, and family.
In response to the situation, the man realizes he needs to turn things around. He loves his wife, finds her attractive, and doesn’t want a divorce. He acknowledges his immaturity in going to the clubs.
The question arises: why does he go to strip clubs and pay for lap dances when he has a beautiful wife at home?
The man, if honest, explains that he is sometimes afraid of his wife’s expectations. She believes he lacks desire for her because he hasn’t been intimate with her lately. He fears falling short of her expectations and admits to receiving gratification from other women.
So why do strip clubs, strippers, and lap dances entice some men while they neglect their loving wives?
According to the man, at the clubs, he can relax, be himself, drink, listen to music, and watch beautiful bodies seduce him. He may even be invited to dance with one of the strippers, who uses seductive language and touches to make him feel desired.
At home, some men feel like frightened children about to be scolded when it comes to sexual desire. They overhear other men treating intimacy as a chore instead of a pleasurable experience.
What do strippers and exotic dancers provide that men crave but don’t receive at home?
Firstly, the man is the center of attention at the club. The woman does all the flirting and seducing, gradually removing clothing and using provocative poses to arouse him. Some strippers may come close to touching the men’s faces or allowing them to touch sensitive areas. There are also private rooms where more intimate activities are available at a high price.
Secondly, the exotic dancer’s goal is to tease, titillate, and make the man believe he is a master of arousing her. There are no demands, expectations, arguments, or love. However, there is also no real communication or knowledge of who the stripper truly is.
The truth about exotic dancers is that they may only do it to support a habit or family, achieve a specific financial goal, or take advantage of a quick source of income. Behind the smiles and seductive actions, many of these women feel disgust for the men and despise them for cheating on their partners. Their main goal is to maximize their earnings.
The man who frequents strip clubs satisfies his own narcissistic needs for attention, arousal, stimulation, and praise. However, he deprives himself of true intimacy, closeness, communication, and the opportunity to address his deepest fears and insecurities. His wife also suffers from this lack of intimacy.
The solution is for both partners to take responsibility for the decline of their intimacy. They should seek sexual counseling and restart their sexual relationship from scratch. They should reintroduce themselves to each other and prioritize connection, communication, and understanding.
