    Fabienne and matadorpoeta,

    To echo Tokyo, settle down. Fabienne, I respect you and your opinions. However, don't expect to read a thread titled "Bachelor party ideas" and not expect references to strippers and other things many if not most women find distasteful. matadorpoeta: lame is when you argue with a woman about strippers.

    As I said again, please both of you settle down, or I'll have to send someone into the corner.

    Fok.

    Well, from my limited experience, men and women generally have differing opinions on the subject of strippers.

    as for strippers/hookers/drugs + poets... Charles Bukowski man. Charles Bukowski. If only you could mix betting on horses and disillusionment in there somewhere.

    Perhaps, but hardly an endorsement of the stripper/poet ethos:

    Men, women, not much difference these days, in some milieux. I was invited to a bachelorette party by someone I don't know very well, a female lawyer, and knowing there would be male strippers and worse, I declined, as I don't particularly relish the experience of having some strange pumped up oiled all over man girating his crotch right in my face. I'd feel too sorry for him. I think 15 women ended up participating. I suppose I was reacting negatively because an acquaintance of mine didn't resist peer pressure and ended up doing stupid things during his bachelor party and being sick as a dog both physically and emotionaly on his wedding day. His decision initially, but it got out of hands. Whatever anyone wants to do with their body and emotions, I'm far from a prude, but a wording such as "last night of freedom", to me, indicates someone needs to call off their wedding and explore some more.

    I fully understand responses might come back with words along the line of "rite of passage", which I am not expected to understand, as I am a woman.

    I'm one of these odd birds that doesn't associate much with one gender as opposed to another, but now that I think about it, as a matter of fact, most of my best friends are men, if that helps explain anything.

    As if they were exclusive dependent variables. How myopic.

    Yes, I admit that I had posted that in haste and was not a very though out opener. However, the quotes are still very entertaining.

    Just to get this back on track, I am also going to recommend Vegas.

    Unless you are all seriously attached, the benefit to Vegas is that there is something for everyone. Whether or not the groom-to-be partakes is his call, but it's a great weekend getaway for everyone else. You can party all day and night, meet girls (whether they be professionals or amateurs) and spend some time sticking $20 bills in the g-strings of the hottest girls you'll ever see.

    As to people still being sick on the day of their wedding, I guess my question is, why would you have the bachelor party the night before? My party and those of all my friends took place 3-4 weeks before our weddings. Plenty of time to recover.

    I don't know what kind of money you spend going to vegas. I want to suggest something that might seem a little crazy, but but give it though.

    prague - if you can get a flight there for $600, and vegas is $300, it pays off.

    the best beer you will ever have can be bought for a buck a liter (that is 33 ounces), the strippers (I am told) make the girls in vegas look like klinger from mash, a hotel can be had for $30-40, and if anybody does want to cross the threshold of good taste, there are gorgeous women available for what it costs to have a breakfast buffet in vegas.

    every time I go to prague for business, the city is full of brits on bachlor party weekends, having a blast.

    oh, and it is one of the cheapest places in the world to hear good opera every night of the year. [​IMG]

    Proportion of women who go to see Chippendales is far lower than that of men going to strip clubs.

    Several weeks before hand is definitely the correct approach.

    Some other suggestions and things that I've done or been invited to include:

    Golf outing - allows you to take out the father-in-law and others not interested in certain evening entertainments and/or drinking (not that you can't drink on the course)

    Rock climbing - indoors with the pulleys and safety stuff. No fears of failure/falling/injury.

    Party bus - Can actully be quite expensive for smaller parties. You can drink on the bus and be delivered to wherever you wish if you're bar hopping.

    Amusement park - six flags, water parks, etc. As long as it's not too kid themed, you'd be surprised by how much fun you can have with a bunch of friends in the mood to goof off.

    Ball game - if you have pro sports you can do something during the day and then have the boys out in the evening.

    Simply because his friends were coming from all corners of the world (expats, mostly) and the US, and they weren't going to make a 2000 dollar trip twice in a month, not to mention time you need to take off work.

    Women are definitely catching up, sadly.

    Question: do brides-to-be know about bachelor parties, and the extent of what might happen?

    It must be the culture difference or something, I just cannot get my mind around this.

    But if the bride is having her own bachelorette party, and is in full agreement with her future husband's night of debauchery, then I'll suggest inviting both a male and a female prostitute and see what happens.
