Relationships change all the time. Sometimes for the good, sometimes not so good. It happened to my husband and I. Part of the change was that there wasn’t any change. We were so stuck in our rut and our lives were just predictable. As a result, we lost our passion for each other. For a while, anyway.
My husband is a good man. He’d never cheat. He doesn’t watch porn. But I started to notice him noticing other women. Not that he was really rude about it or anything, but a woman sees the slightest glance. Am I right, ladies? And I didn’t want it to progress further than that. I wanted him to see me.
So, I took matters into my own hands. I was getting groceries one day and past Rhode Island Dolls in Woonsocket on my way home. I am sure I have passed it by dozens of times. There was a girl standing outside by her car, texting on her phone. I guessed she was a dancer and on a whim I pulled into the parking lot.
“Are you a dancer?” I asked.
She looked me up and down and said, “Yes. I’m going to take a wild guess and say you’re not looking for a job, so…how can I help you.”
I knew she must be suspicious about why a middle aged woman like me would want to suddenly have a conversation with her. She likely hadn’t had the best experiences with women.
“Well, I was just wondering if women – well, couples – ever come into the club? Is it even allowed?”
She relaxed when she realized I wasn’t going to be rude.
“It happens. Not a lot, but it happens. And couples are welcome.”
We chatted for about 10 minutes, and she assured me that it was perfectly fine.
I sat on the idea for about a week. Finally, I broached the idea with my husband. At first he was hesitant, but I convinced him it was worth a try and that I wanted to make our marriage more interesting. We agreed that if either of us was uncomfortable with the situation, we would leave.
The following weekend we went to Rhode Island Dolls. It felt rather strange, as neither of us had been to a strip club before. We didn’t know what to expect. We took a table a bit of a way away from the stage at first. We watched. And the dancer I’d talked to came out onto the main stage. She was beautiful. At first my husband didn’t know if he should be watching at first or trying to act like it was no big deal. But I reached out and took his hand under the table and said, “It’s fine. Enjoy the show. She is gorgeous, isn’t she?”
He smiled and nodded.
She saw us from the stage and smiled at us. After her dance routine, she went to the back and when she came out, she came to our table. She talked to us for a few minutes and encouraged us to sit closer to the stage next time.
We eventually did move closer, and we ended up having a great time. We both loosened up a lot as the evening went on.
Later that night, we talked about it. And if you’re wondering, yes, it made us both feel a lot more amorous than usual. In fact, we talked about it for weeks afterwards. And we had such a great time we went back again. Now we usually go to Rhode Island Dolls once or twice a month. We go in and have a meal after work and then we stay for dances. None of our friends know. It’s our little secret.
And you know what? I’m even starting to take some classes to learn how to work a pole! I may be middle aged, but I think it will be loads of fun. I’m planning a special evening for my husband after the next night we go to the gentlemen’s club. I can’t wait to see my husband’s face when he sees the stripper pole that I bought and the sexy outfit that I’m going to strip out of for him. This will be a lap dance that he’ll never forget!
Rhode Island Dolls is open. We are respecting social distancing rules so some services might not be available. We ask at this time that you make reservations so that we can accommodate as many people as pandemic guidelines allow for.
