The first question I want to ask is how often? If it’s any more frequent than five-ish times a year, then I would be concerned and raise a red flag. If a man goes to a strip club for special occasions (bachelor parties or birthdays), then it is completely normal. Is the man married, single, taken? A married man should limit his attendance to special occasions, while a single man gets a free pass. Read more
