Interview With A Straight Go-Go Dancer Working In A West Hollywood Gay Club

Jeff Tetreault is a screenwriter by day and a straight West Hollywood go-go dancer by night.

VICE recently sat down with Jeff to shed light on what it’s like to be a straight dancer in a Hollywood gay club.

VICE: How do you separate yourself or outdo the other go-go boys?
Jeff: Well, I have a pretty good bulge and that’s kinda my M.O. when it comes to dancing. I always want to go out with a well-fluffed dick, I want to look the best I can, have the best bulge, and I want to earn money. I don’t want to be outdone by someone. I don’t like when I see another dancer get more attention. I’m extremely competitive and this is why I’ll never be in a male-male-female threesome, because I’d want to out-fuck the other guy.

VICE: What kind of propositions are you guys presented with while working?

Jeff: Everything. I get very insulted when people like to call me a hooker, whore, prostitute, or man-whore because I don’t do that stuff and I miss out on a lot of fucking money by not doing it. I routinely get offers to accompany people back home. They’re called “privates,” to do anything from cuddle with someone, masturbate for them, or let them blow me. The price range varies. I’ve been offered anywhere from $200 to $5,000, and I can’t bring myself to do it.

VICE: What tips and tricks do you and the other guys use to get through the night? Cock rings? Alcohol? Adderall?

Jeff: I use cock rings. Different jobs call for different pressure. If I know I’m not going to get a break for a long time I’ll use something with a little looser pinch so it doesn’t constrict too much. By the way, I just want to put this out there, cock rings are not magic, they don’t get you hard unless you really tie the motherfucker up. Basically what they do is delay the flow of blood out of your penis, almost like an hourglass. Where as if you were just to “fluff up” and go out you’d shrink because you’re not turned on, you’re active, and the blood is going everywhere else. The cock ring pinches the passageway and keeps you hard for slightly longer.

VICE: How do you feel about being objectified when you dance?

Jeff: It’s part of the fun. I mean I’m not going to lie, this is the thing, I basically get to go out and party. I liken it to a Saturday or Friday night. I get paid to go out and drink and be the center of attention, rather than paying to go out and drink and trying to get people’s attention.

Jeff also reflected on one of the worst experiences he had while dancing:

One night I had made seven dollars in two hours and it was so demeaning and humiliating, I left early, came home, and punched a fucking hole in my door. Nobody was tipping me but everyone wanted to come up to me and squeeze my dick. It’s nights like those that really make me question why I’m doing this. Most nights are pretty decent, though. People are always trying to touch me and get their hands in my underwear; I’ve become desensitized to it. It’s more about the money than that.
