I enjoy and appreciate when exotic male dancers participate in theme nights or wear costumes and underwear that reflect popular culture or the seasons.
There are three reasons that an exotic male dancer should keep a costume and underwear monthly calendar. One: By dressing for theme nights and the seasons, you provide an extra element that customers will enjoy and the club staff will appreciate. This often translates into more booked gigs and more tips. Two: It provides another opportunity to promote yourself using customer favorite colors, costumes and themes. And Three: It shows you are a professional in your commitment to your performance which leads to success for you and the bar or club where you perform.
I created this calendar to help exotic male dancers plan ahead and be prepared for special dates and events each month of the year. There are four sections: A calendar of special dates, popular themes and colors, ideas for selfies and a check list for upcoming months.
I have added some fun national and international calendar days for promotional pic ideas. I have linked the events to a location where you can find more information online. If I find I have missed a special day or event, I will add it to the monthly calendars at that time. If you notice I have missed something or know of a fun addition to a monthly calendar, please leave a comment below and let me know.
Bookmark this blog and you can refer to it each month to help you come up with ideas and stay prepared. Be sure to add in the local events that you are involved in.
Most events listed in the calendars are U.S. related. If you are outside the U.S., use this calendar as a sample and create your own calendar using your local and national events.
