"An exuberant, sexy and sex-filled romp of a movie…now that's entertainment." - Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail
Ladies' night out is an X-rated experience savored with good-humor and shared sisterhood in this documentary exploring the unique culture of a New Jersey nightclub featuring African American male strippers for the delectation of an avid female clientele. Dancers with stage names like Rawdawg, Tyga, Satan, and Fever get down to bare-butt basics in provocative acrobatic routines in the true spirit of the art of burlesque, and play peekaboo with what is seen and not seen. Director Graham goes behind the raucous glittery spectacle for a look at the lives of performers, and interviews the family-focused women who form their fan base and see a night at the club as a joyous affirmation of black female desire.
