Although Valentine’s Day is a special day set aside to celebrate love between two people, love is a universal theme that plays any time of year. Using my 5 point music criteria, I’ve selected 14 songs that I feel will work well for male sstripper performances. I’ve linked them below from YouTube so you can sample each and see which ones will work for you. They are in no specific order but have been categorized into classic, country, pop, and r & b.
Classic Love Songs
#1 Everything I Do ( I Do For You) by Bryan Adams
Canadian Bryan Adams was a music force in the 1990s. His voice was heard in the soundtrack of many movies including Robin Hood and The Three Musketeers. The lyrics of this song puts all the emphasis on the other party in the relationship. Make this a love song to your audience in your dance moves, strip maneuvers, and costuming. Wear the costume of a famous male lover! Use a red rose as a prop and give it to one of the audience members doing your performance.
#2 My Love By Paul McCartney and Wings
“My Love” by Paul McCartney is moody and lends itself to the idea of making love to your audience. The song has the sounds of seduction. It’s not a “wham bam, thank you Ma’am” type of song. It’s the take your time and make sure your partner is getting all you can give them. Skimpy and sexy underwear should be worn during much of the song. The more revealing, the better ( but follow the guidelines of the venue where your performing.) You can’t get much more classic than an original Beatle.
#3 Wicked Game by Chris Isaak
Our heart falls in love with who it wants. Chris Isaak expresses the longing that happens when those feelings start building and you have no control. This haunting melody stands apart from what I call “sappy bubble gum love songs”. That kind that have no deep feeling just a phrase that is repeated over and over. I recommend that you take Chris Isaak’s video wardrobe selection and wear a tank top white undershirt and tight fitting jeans. Slide out of the jeans first leaving your bulge peaking out below the undershirt. If the possibility exists, this would be a good song to use as you get wet in undershirt and underwear. Make sure the wet underwear clings to ‘the boys’.
#4 For Your Eyes Only by Sheena Easton
Feel like a little Bond, James Bond? For a male stripper this song plays on the double entendre of “For Your Eyes Only”as in the document that is meant only for authorized persons, And “For Your Eyes Only” as the male stripper is showing his goods to only those who are present. Once again the members of the audience become the objects for love interests. If you have access to one, wear a tuxedo to strip out of. If not, wear a suit and tie. Bond is known for drinking a martini that is ‘shaken, not stirred’. A fun prop to have during the performance is a martini which you take several sips from. Also, in the video you can see that silhouettes are used frequently. Think about incorporating a silhouette in your performance. Is there something you can step behind to cast a shadow?
Whenever possible I’m going to add a cowboy theme in for male strippers. If you’ve followed me very long, you know that the cowboy is my favorite male stripper costume. Country music has many classic love songs. I’ve added a few that I’d like to see performed.
#5 I Love The Way You Love Me by John Michael Montgomery
When dressed in Cowboy hat and boots with this song playing, you’ll have their hearts melting and up tipping. Do a slow seductive strip. Toward the end be wearing a pair of pouch emphasizing underwear and slip back into the boots and hat. That’s my fantasy. I’m sure it works for many other male stripper fans as well.
#6 I Need You by Lee Ann Rimes
Another country based song that expresses a strong sentiment. This would be a good song in which to go around the room working the audience as if to say to each and everyone, “I Need You.” Give this an urban cowboy look, like your a country singer going to the Country Music Awards. Wear a colorful pair of underwear that show off your best assets.
#7 Your Man by Josh Turner
This light hearted song will be a favorite for your audience, ‘Lock the door and turn the lights down low.” Try a pair of cut offs, no shirt, a hat and boots for this one. Let the audience get lost in the fantasy of you as their man. If nothing else the deep rich voice of Josh Turner will have them squirming in their seats.

#8 Let Me by Zayn
Zayn sings “Let me be your man.” This song can be interpreted with many different costumes. You can be a superhero or wear street clothes and be the boy next door. I recommend you take a cue from Zayn and wear a pair of sunglasses in your performance.
#9 Yummy by Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber’s new single “Yummy” is all about having sex with a girl he’s really into. The lyrics state that his “rollin’ eyes back in his head. Make his toes curl.” He’s running to a booty call that he refers to as “Yummy”. Maybe this isn’t so much about the emotion of love but it definitely covers the two ingredients of passion and lust.
#10 Chains by Nick Jonas
I selected this song mainly for costume options. Of course, you’ll need to have chains wrapped around you. They will be removed as a part of the strip performance. This is more of a love gone wrong theme but isn’t that part of the risk of love?
#11 A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
Step back a few years to the Twilight Saga and become a romantic figure of your choice. If the theme of the night is romantic leading men or movie characters, a vampire would be fine. Otherwise, think of something more human. Twilight was a date movie so be the guy coming to pick up the girl or guy for a date. What would you wear? What would you bring? And then become the fantasy of you in their mind. Red underwear is a good color for love. Have fun with it. Instead of sparkling skin thank about filling the stage area with twinkling lights all in one color. Speak with the lighting person so they’ll turn all other lights off at one time to make a visual impact. Of course the lights could go off at the moment you are stripping into your underwear and the audience can only see you in the soft glow of the twinkling lights. Of course, before the end of your performance, have the lights turned back on.
R & B
#12 Easy by DaniLeigh featuring Chris Brown
I added this song just because I like it and for the person with the right moves, it can be a great performance song. I like the feel and the beat.
#13 Please Me by Cardi B. and Bruno Mars
Ok, we’ve left love behind and are dealing strictly with physical pleasure and gratification. This song can play well into the fantasies of the audience. Just think about it, a hot male stripper is dancing to a song that says “Please me”. If this doesn’t light a fire in them, nothing will. I recommend that you do a lot of rubbing on your body while stripping to this song. And of course, you’ll have to do several gropes as well. If you’re ass is one of your best assets, make sure you present it to the audience in a way that expresses the feeling of the song.
#14 Let Me Love You by Mario
A common theme in all music genres is longing for the love of another who is with someone else. Play into their fantasies of the knight in shining armor who arrives to save them from their worst enemy. Take it so far as to dress in all white. It will look good under the stage lights.
