This week, I went to five strip clubs in five days, which means that I more than quadrupled my strip-club life experience.

Sure, any day of the week you can brave Times Square to get an eyefulbut NYC also offers more festive ways to appreciate the human form in its unclothed glory.

Halsey's streak of steamy videos continues with a strip club performance that's heating up social media.

Thanks to a Halsey fan account, we can all watch it endlessly above.
A strip club is a venue where strippers provide adult entertainmentpredominantly in the form of striptease or other erotic or exotic dances. Strip clubs typically adopt a nightclub or bar style, and can also adopt a theatre or cabaret -style.
