For the first time ever in Tampa there was a totally nude mens show! The creatively artistic unclothed men were from Liquid Lounge and the event was hosted at the Adamo Drive strip spot, SKIN Tampa, in Ybor City at 1621 2nd Avenue. The’au naturel’ shows were very classy and non-stop from 7 pm to 4 am! Hundreds from around the area and state packed SKIN for the event. We must say that for a strip club SKIN was 1st class, clean, very friendly and a totally bare blast of FUN! We are sure you all want to see the photos, but we have something even better! We went with the guys to learn their 1st stripper pole techniques and stayed for the finals. Here is the video:
