Wonderful club hunting for gentlemens especially for hustler
Taking the proceeds from his current business venture, Flynt eventually opened his first Hustler Strip Club which would eventually lead him into the pornographic empire he's infamous for today. While the brand may be as graphic as an adult magazine can get, the club holds true to a higher sense of class that isn't found in most strip clubs. In a city where strip clubs can be found on just about any corner, standing out is key to survival.
Day Trips. Adult Entertainment. Hostels Apartments. This exclusive club is filled with beautiful women, a wide selection of alcohols and even a VIP room for private reservations. Although one of the smaller clubs in Warsaw, it is definitely one of the best with a great atmosphere.
Behind-the-scenes consultants Jacq Frances and Johanna Sapakie taught Jennifer Lopez how to pole dance and director Lorene Scafaria how strip clubs function, all in the name of keeping the movie from feeling like a caricature. The first take of this scene looked a little different than the one that made it into the movie. Rather than pleading with Destiny, the man was trying to force her into touching him. Watching from the sidelines, though, Frances felt that something was off. Based on a true story, filmed in a real strip club, and populated by actual strippers, Hustlers is tethered to reality.
And it gets a lot right, thanks in large part to two people: Johanna Sapakie and Frances. Sapakie was the pole consultant for the film, the architect of among other things J. Frances, meanwhile, was both a comfort consultant and strip club expert who made sure actors simulating sexual contact felt at ease while also answering questions about how a strip club actually runs. Grab it! Shake it!
And the two women teamed up to choreograph scenes in the VIP rooms, where the actors were dancing and chatting up their clients at the same time. Frances cites two major issues that plague most movies about strippers: First, the tendency to feature violence against sex workers—she cites a gratuitous rape scene in Showgirls that makes the movie impossible for her to watch; second, the way many movies about strippers pathologize sex work.
In moments like this one, Hustlers makes sure to remind you that stripping is a job, and that those who do it get to control how they do it.
Destiny looks to Ramona, a veteran of the club, for guidance on everything from how to dance to what bag to buy when she starts raking in cash. Frances remembers being the new girl.
Sapakie also made sure to recognize the agency strippers have to make choices about what they do at work, particularly onstage. For example, in teaching Wu, whose character is new to stripping and has less pole experience, Sapakie says the most important thing to learn was confidence.
Of course, Sapakie spent time teaching not just confidence but impeccable technique. Once Lopez had a tool kit of moves like the one a real stripper would be able to draw from, she and Sapakie sat down and choreographed the routine.

Sapakie stresses that Lopez pulled off moves—like turning upside down—that a pole novice would never be able to. There was no effort there. But a commitment to portraying strippers as they actually are, grappling with the issues that really plague them—unstable working conditions, casual misogyny, stigma— within a movie that is also glitzy and exciting can only be a good thing.
