In Western countries, the venues where stripteases are performed on a regular basis are now usually called strip clubs , though they may be performed in venues such as pubs especially in the UK , theaters and music halls. At times, a stripper may be hired to perform at a bachelor or bachelorette party. In addition to providing adult entertainment , stripping can be a form of sexual play between partners. Striptease involves a slow, sensuous undressing. The stripper may prolong the undressing with delaying tactics such as the wearing of additional clothes or putting clothes or hands in front of just undressed body parts such as the breasts or genitalia.
