What's normal?
I realize that it might be different for each person, and none of this is to say that I intend to go any time soon; I just feel so in the dark about it all.
Can somebody break down the whole phenomenon of strip clubbing for me?

And if you're a girl, please don't bother posting that I shouldn't go to strip clubs, or that all guys who visit strip clubs are filthy pigs, etc. I already know how you feel; this is a question for guys.
