My name is Michael Hill. I am a photographer, promoter, blogger and web developer. These four roles grew out of my passion for the entertainment world of exotic male dancers. Male Stripper Guru was created as a companion website and blog to my Males In Motion website. Male Stripper Guru focuses on assisting the male stripper to enjoy success in the exotic male dancer entertainment industry. Males In Motion is a news and information source that focuses on successful customer experiences.
I have served as a judge for the following male stripper competitions:
Mr. X-Room at X-Room at Mardi Gras in Springfield, MO
The Next Magic Mike at Somewhere in Lima, OH
Lexington Male Stripper Of The Year at Crossings in Lexington, KY

More About Me ...
I Am First A Customer And Fan
I am not and have never been an exotic male dancer. My approach to this industry is strictly as the customer and fan. It is the customer who gives tips to keep the dancers dancing, buys drinks to keep the bartenders pouring, and pays the cover charge to keep the doors open.
The customer is therefore, one of, if not the most important ingredient in the successful operation of a bar or club that features exotic male dancers.
The Evolution Of Websites And Blogs
For many years I worked for a corporation as a member of the IT staff. I traveled to different places in the U.S. and Mexico where the company had offices. During my travels I would always look for clubs that featured male dancers to visit during my off-work hours.
I made some great discoveries along the way. This was before the days of social media, yes, I'm that old. Finding information about clubs that featured male strippers was not as easy as asking Siri or Alexa, or looking it up on your phone.
In 2003, I was motivated to start a website, Males In Motion, where I could maintain a list of the clubs across North America. After that, any time I traveled for work or pleasure, I would have an available list online where I could check for clubs in the area and then, go have my fun.
In 2019, I made a decision to split Male In Motion into two separate entities: Males In Motion which caters to the experiences of the customer providing news and information of where they can go to enjoy male stripper entertainment, read reviews of clubs and learn about featured male strippers and clubs.
The other entity is Male Stripper Guru which is focused on inspiring the Male Stripper toward success. The site produces information to assist guys who want to become male strippers, as well as providing support to veteran male strippers.
Catching The Boys With Their Pants Down
I dabbled in photography in high school and even wound up being the editor of the high school yearbook my senior year. I continued to enjoy photography in college and then after graduation as a hobby.
As I started the Males In Motion website, I found It difficult to find the kind of images I wanted to use, so I began to capture those images myself at clubs featuring male dancers.
In time, I also started hiring local college students to be male models for promotional images for Males In Motion. For a couple of years, I even took promotional photos for local drag queens and entertainers.
Today, I take photos and videos at clubs and in the studio for the purpose of use on the websites and in the blogs. I am available to assist male strippers and clubs by taking promotional images. This is at no cost because I do a trade-off allowing me to use their images in my work as well.
This is actually a win-win for the male dancer and the club. They receive pics for their personal promotion and those same pics are used to give them free promotion in my websites, blogs and social media.
Today I describe Males In Motion as a news and information service that promotes the world of exotic male dancers.
Males In Motion is not an agency that provides male dancers for events. Nor are we a male review. Instead, we promote the exotic male dancer entertainment industry itself, male dancers and the clubs that feature them.
I also serve as a consultant to male dancers, show directors, club managers/owners and promoters. I serve as a judge at male stripper and pageant competitions.
As needed, I hire male dancers for promotional purposes to appear at clubs and private parties. However, let me make it clear that I do not maintain a list of male dancers that I regularly book for events.
If you are interested in any of my services, please contact me by email or through one of the social media accounts.
