Bachelor party ideas - Page 4

post #46 of 64
F, I've run into several bachelorette parties in the States. They usually revolve around getting the future bride drunk (pub crawl) while making her do silly things that are innocently sexual. Getting a picture with a guy's washboard abs, for instance. Serves several purposes: lets guys know that the girl with the veil is off limits, puts the group at the center of attention so makes it hard for her to do something really stupid, and gives her friends more free reign than they might usually give themselves to hook up for the night. This is just my experience, I've never been into a Chippendales

Oh, man. "Hen nights" in the UK are ridiculous. Large groups of incredibly drunk women wearing trashy theme t-shirts (often sexual) and tiaras (or something of the sort) stumbling down the streets.

The callgirl thing is more than just a little over the top for me. Drunk, disorderly for certain. But anonymous sex seems barbaric. Sorry.

What is the purpose of a bachelor party? Serious question.

There is also a burgeoning porn genre, CFNM, or Clothed Females Naked Males, that depicts some of these hen nights (often in the UK). I'm not sure if it is targeted towrads men and women.

It's basically a wake for the groom's sex life.

Don't mind me--just a flippant remark alluding to the commonly-held belief that a few years after marriage, sex in the relationship basically disappears. True in some cases, not true in others.

More seriously, I think it's just supposed to represent a "last night of freedom". One last night to do all the things that your wife might disapprove of without having to worry about the power struggles and negotiations that come with marriage. That can be pretty innocent or it can be very morally suspect, but personally I don't think the concept itself is inherently morally suspect or inappropriate.

Assuming you have the kind of wife/husband who isn't petty and assuming the "things" we're talking about are not morally suspect or inappropriate, I don't see why they should stop as of the point one decides to say "I do". Or am I again missing something?

Either you're missing the standard American prudishness or your husband doesn't like strip clubs and rowdy drunks. I wouldn't be surprised by either, or both.

I think the point is that once a man becomes married, he is going to have much less time to spend with his guy friends, because he (rightfully) will be spending most of his time with his wife. So a bachelor's party is a "last night out" that needs to go to somewhat of an extreme to tide everyone over until the groom-to-be can hang out again.

I hope the suggestions of something more than an R-rated evening were in jest. That is basically asking for a quickie annulment. See Mario Lopez.

Make sure to get the groom-to-be a Doug Christie jersey.

I did not have a bachelor party as I really was not interested in one. I once went back to the hotel suite of a bachelorette party (when I was much younger), and have to say that there was MUCH more sex going on there than at any of my friends bachelor partys.

I won't speak for my husband, but what about "standard American prudishness"?

I guess I function from a totally different perspective. If my husband wants to spend time with a friend or friends without me, I'm happy for him if I know it makes him happy. God I hope he never thought the night before our wedding night would be his "last night out"!
