In my last article, I may have suggested the sky was falling. Gentlemen’s clubs no longer come with a license to print money, and at every subsequent EXPO, there is a greater contingent of operators bemoaning the fact that the gods of stripping refuse to make it rain. The issue is not that our market is shrinking; it’s that we’ve failed to grow it, to be relevant to today’s and tomorrow’s guest.

A Special Focus on touring feature entertainers
They’ve been the centerpiece of the ED’s Awards Show since its inception in 1998, and for the past four decades, they’ve proven to be a vital aspect of the adult nightclub industry. Feature entertainers—whether they’re showgirls, pole acrobats, porn stars or a combination of these—continue to captivate crowds at the ED’s Awards Show and at clubs across the country.
In the March issue of Club Bulletin, we highlighted the nation’s “regional” adult magazines, those that are distributed in specific cities and states. In this issue, we’re presenting a similar set of adult industry media outlets; this time, we’ve entered the world wide web to discover the websites devoted to the adult entertainment inudstry. These are sites that cover the adult industry at large, while some cover the adult nightclub industry exclusively. In many instances, these sites post news, press releases, photos and videos of industry events, and promote clubs and feature entertainers locally, nationally and even internationally. Some boast podcasts devoted to the industry, as well as live internet radio shows.
