I helped plan my friend's bachelor party this weekend, which was great fun except for that awkward and unspoken part where I think I was supposed to know how to find some naked ladies. I have seen strippers perform because if you're a guy eventually someone will drag you to a strip club whether you like it or not, but I've never really gone at my own suggestion. Maybe there are guys who have strippers on speed dial, in case of an emergency--and these are guys I like to call "Paul Stanley of KISS"--but it's honestly a mystery to me. As far as I know there does not exist any kind of service like yelp.com for bachelor party entertainment, which I find odd. I mean, it seems like there are tons of online resources you can cross-reference to find out where to get a good Vietnamese sandwich in Manhattan, but nothing like a Zagat's guide to let you know ahead of time if you're about to hire a "serviceable" entertainer whose "bloom is off the rose" and who is "also notable" for having a "belligerent pimp" who might "rob you at knifepoint."
In an effort to do proper diligence in researching this kind of specialty service, I decided to draft a questionnaire to help me screen any potential candidates for bachelor party entertainment. I realize it sounds like a very square thing to do, but it seemed preferable to choosing the first name I found in the local business directory. (This is not meant as a criticism of "AAAA Strippers, Unlimited." I'm sure they're a very reputable vendor.) Anyway, I learned this technique while planning my own wedding and downloading forms from sites like theknot.com, which provide lists of questions to ask your vendors. And creating this questionnaire helped me weed out individuals who were less likely to deliver the level of quality and professionalism this bachelor party demanded.
It was helpful for me, and if you think it might be helpful if you're planning a bachelor party, or just would like some strippers to come to your dormitory or next church function, you can download this questionnaire as a PDF:
