So basically, we are an online company that provides male entertainers. We were inspired by Magic Mike. To join us there are criteria you need to fulfill. Firstly, you have to look decent. Secondly, you need to have a good physique. And thirdly, you gotta know how to dance, to move. So, you might be a bodybuilder who looks good physically but if you’re stiff, you’ll look weird dancing. I have friends who want to do what I do but it’s not as simple as they think. If you don’t know how to dance, take a class. If you don’t have the body, go to the gym and train.
I used to work out every day when I was younger but these days, I’d go four to five times a week, each time about an hour to three hours. I’m less into bodybuilding and more into acrobatics. I have a dance background so that helps too. But ultimately, it all boils down to confidence. Many clients would want more interaction than just dancing. You need to exude confidence and engage the client. On the night of the performance, we prepare by asking the client to have some alcohol [to relax them]. There needs to be a chair for the client to sit on and a banana, which is part of the act. I’d shave my privates and wear a cup hidden in the underwear to have a bigger package.
My act is more choreographed. Like a dance but with an element of striptease to it. Usually we’ll strip to our briefs as Singapore clients won’t opt for full nudity because it’s more expensive and they’re pretty conservative.
