During the day, Montreal poses as a historic, beautiful city with unique European flair. When the evening arrives, so does the city's sinful side. Montreal puts the postcard image aside, transforming into Sin Cité, abundant with debauchery and indulgences able to entice any male. No matter your sexual vice, Montreal has it. Don't expect the locals to give you an evil eye to ground yourself; in their eyes, there is nothing sinful about enjoying life's pleasures. People are around to foster your carnal desires, not impede them.
Outsiders may portray the city as Sodom and Gomorra, but sexe is as much part of the Montreal culture as hockey and Celine Dion. Likely attributable to the French cultural influence, Montreal embraces the erotic arts. Thus, Montreal has become a haven for the erotic. Downtown Montreal is home to over 40 sexual theaters (Montreal strip clubs), ensuring accessibility for citizens and visitors to experience eroticism first-hand. This is in huge contrast to other cities, whose ideals have placed numerous restrictions on artistic expression. The vast array of strip clubs allows patrons an experience not typically found in North America.
In Montreal, there are two different and important categories one has to consider when selecting a strip club: non-contact and full-contact. Non-contact is the type of club that most visitors are familiar with. During dances, one must be restrained, sitting properly while keeping their hands to themselves under the watchful eye of the bouncer. Coming to Montréal to visit a NC strip club is like going to Amsterdam to smoke tobacco cigarettes. Sadly, each year thousands of misguided visitors are lured to Montreal's well-known NC strip clubs. This is a true tragedy, considering that for the same price one can experience the full-contact clubs next door. Oddly, FC dances are the same price as NC dances. Full-contact, better described as "two-hand touch," refers to the style of dance the patron receives. All FC dances are private; you sit in a booth-like cubicle while the dancer performs for you. Patrons are encouraged, to get hands-on during the show. It is typically frowned upon to peruse the dancer's groin region. Patrons are NOT expected to tip, as all revenue goes directly to the performers
Montreal's strip clubs are full of beautiful woman. Most patrons will find that Montreal strippers are a lot more genuine and less demanding than your typical performer, respecting their patron's space and right to choose. It is not uncommon for girls to spend time getting to know patrons, free from financial intentions.
In the end, Montreal provides a dynamic and sinfully-delightful, yet oft-overlooked, strip club experience.
