Two or three years ago, it seemed that every week there was a report about Montreal and its then fabulous strip clubs. From the first sign of spring until the first heavy blanket of snow, it seemed like one or more poster was reporting on the current stable of dancing boys. But lately, the reports and updates from the Old Port are few and far between. Is it due to the now basically even currency exchange? Is it because of a decline in the quality or quantity of dancing boys? Is it because of some thing within the city itself? Just wondering.

 

For me personally, I always loved Montreal. For 4 or 5 years, I went there twice a year for vacation and always had a good time. But then I discovered Rio de Janeiro. It became my favorite vacation spot. So add that to my job insecurity over the last few years, and I have not been able to take two big vacations per year for the last couple of years.

 

We used to get regular Montreal reports from the likes of Newatthis, Cooper, Bozo, Taz, and several other "regular" visitors.

 

Just wondering what happened? Have these posters and others "moved on" from Montreal? Or just don't post about it as much?

I for one used to go to Montreal all the time. Sometimes two or three times a year. I just got tired of the attitude of the French Canadians toward Americans. Some of my friends never had a problem, but then again, I have a big mouth and can rarely keep my opinions to myself.

 

I also got tired of the money situation. The boys ain't cheap by any stretch of the imagination. So I had to ask myself, Why am I flying clear to Canada when I can find what I want right here in SoCal or in Lauderdale. Hell, I would rather fly to Chicago or NYC to meet someone than the hassle of going into Canada.

 

And lastly, I have traveled all over the world hiring escorts since I was twenty something, and the only time that I got ripped off and my wallet stolen was in Montreal. After that incident, I never went back.

 

You can have Stock and Campus and everywhere in between, for me at least, I simply am not interested anymore.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think there are any strip clubs in the US which offer the same type of backroom dance options that are available in Montreal. I have never been to Miami/Ft Lauderdale area, so I can't speak with any certainty about those areas. I have heard some "interesting" reports, but no real "juicy" details if things can or do go as far as they do in Montreal.

Swinging Richards in Atlanta & Fort Lauderdale offer "Montreal-style fun" in the champagne rooms. Gold Coast in Detroit is pretty liberal and they have cubicles in the back. I think some of the NYC clubs may have private champagne rooms as well.

 

BTW, I'll be in Montreal next week so I'll do a report.

Well technically you are right, but you can get basically the same action at say SR in Miami in the backrooms. Now it will cost you about 150 bucks, some say for 15 min, but my experience has been for 1/2 hour and anything goes. Even Johnny's in FtL has VERY private backrooms where I have had a lot of fun with the dancers. While they usually have twink type dancers, last week I ran into a couple of really hunky young bodybuilders. One I had a goodtime with in the backroom. I told him I didn't want to count songs, so we settled on 80 dollars and I was back there for at least 20 min. I have negotiated an off site run for the same price as any dancer in Montreal, and so does clubs in SF. for about the same money I can do a backroom at the Nobhill in SF with a visiting porn star and get the same thing as Montreal.

 

I was in a backroom in SF with porn star Jake Steele for a good half hour for about a hundred bucks and we had a lot of fun. It was anything goes there as well. If I want to take one of the dancers home from Stock or Campus, that little adventure will set you back a cool 200-250 per hour, the same as any dancer in any US city that I have been to. Even some of the dancers here in WEHO, I have negotiated prices for off site fun for about 250-300 bucks, but since I live out in the "burbs" and about a 30 min drive, they will often stay for a couple of hours, I even have had a couple want to spend the night since it was so quiet where I live, so far from the drama of Hollywood, and asked for nothing more.

 

So I guess the point is, why go clear to Canada when you can negotiate the same thing here. Now, I had my fun in Canada, don't get me wrong, but factor in air and hotel and the distance, and I just don't see the bargain anymore. SO for me I am just going to stay states side for awhile. So long as SR and Twist and Johnnys keep there doors open....LOL (and a little shout out to the Boardwalk as well) I took a couple of guys home from there. I had made plans with a local escort for an overnight, and I was telling one of the dancers there, he thought I was paying too much and offered to go for far less, He was right, I had more fun with him and cost me less.....it is all in the negotiations. ;)

I've been going to Montreal a couple of times a year, and I still have a great time. I'm going again in a couple weeks.

 

I suspect that there haven't been a lot of trip reports about Montreal here because it tends to stay about the same. The exchange rates aren't as favorable as they were a few years back, and I'm sure that has an impact, but the scene is pretty much the same every time I go, so there isn't too much to report.

 

To me, it is a very different kind of fun than you get by hiring an escort or dropping $150 for a "champagne room" experience at Swinging Richards. I think Montreal is more like a buffet than a seven-course meal. In Montreal, I can get a nice taste of several dancers for $40-$60 each and have a big ol' night of fun. It's a different kind of fun than a couple of hours in a hotel room with an escort, but it is still lots of fun.

I like that analogy.. I think that is what I have enjoyed in the past about Montreal.. the variety and the "sampler platter" that is available. We have plenty of options here in Phoenix for gogo boys and even totally nude strippers. But the lap dances are not totally private and little to nothing happens.. Many of the boys are available for "take out", but I guess since I live here, I know most of the "regular boys" ..

 

I still hope to get back to Montreal soon, but I might have to try Ft Lauderdale also..

No.

 

Still get them from those two and from a bunch of others. Just not multi-paged anymore. :)

 

I, for one, really enjoyed reading the in depth, detailed reports of days gone past. It was those type reports that started me on my "adult vacations" to Montreal, which in turn lead to my trips to Rio.. I have always believed that it is our responsibility to share and educate others, and that is why I make detailed reports on my journeys, so others might find the travel bug from my stories and discover some of the adventures for themselves.

Interesting topic. It's something I was curious about myself. Like many of you, I haven't been up there nearly as often as I used to visit. I think Fort Lauderdale is probably the main culprit. Far less hassle and expense. Plus you have the beaches. The exchange rate sucks. Flight prices are too high. The talent at the clubs just isn't what it was when I first started going even just a few years ago. But with that said, it's still a spot I like to visit at least once a year.

My partner and I have been going to Montreal probably for 15 or so years. While I agree it seems past it's peak we still go up for a long weekend every summer and still have a very good time. As corndog said it is like a buffet. It's fun checking out the boys as they dance and the occasional "take-out".

 

In recent years we've not experienced any problems with French Canadians although there was a time years ago when the separatist movement was very strong that it seemed to me the Quebecers resisted speaking English and were mildly rude about it. IMHO that has completely changed and there is no problem speaking English and I haven't detected anti-American attitude. (Just remembered that one year on the 4th of July Adonis was decked out in U.S. and Canadian flags and they played our national anthem.)

 

The slow demise of Taboo, its closing last year, and Adonis becoming JP's was a downer for us as we like twinks. However, Campus in the afternoons kept our "interest". I'm hoping that the new management of Taboo can breathe some new life into it.

My sentiments exactly Jake.

 

I do enjoy the in-depth reports and hope all who go to Montreal will report their adventures and specifically as possible. I promise to do the same this summer.

...I do enjoy the in-depth reports...

 

Like Lurker, I was first lured to Montreal by long, detailed reports from long-departed posters like Marc Anthony, YFSC, etc. I reciprocated by posting long, often multi-thread reports of my own travels. I relished the ensuing comments and banter from other posters. (If you want to waste a few hours, check them out -- there's an especially amusing response from Lucky in the form of a quiz.) As time went on, I felt I was having the same adventures with the names changed. The reports were drawing fewer and fewer responses, so I had less incentive to put in the substantial effort it took to write them. I suspect others felt the same way.

 

For me, Montreal is about the ambience and the culture in addition to the clubs, and that can't be duplicated anywhere else. One benefit of having recorded my experiences in such detail early on is that I can avoid viewing the past through rose-colored glasses.

In the not so distant past the exchange rate was very much in our favor. During that time I used to go to Toronto all the time for a long weekend. Flights were cheap. Nice hotels were cheap. The guys at Remington's were cheap. Went to Montreal once. Thought it was just OK, and a lot more dirty (not in a good way) than I expected. But in the last couple of years the Canadian dollar has risen sharply to parity. So it's not the value it used to be. And flights got way more expensive.

 

Now I just head to SE Asia for a month instead. :-)
