Stevi Secret’s New TPT Column

Hi everybody! It’s column time again here on TPT.

As I write this one, I’m looking forward to a week (July 28 – August 5) in San Francisco, where I’ll be appearing at the Market Street Cinema.

Besides a chance to visit one of my favorite towns once again, I’m especially looking forward to this trip. Why? It’s been hot few weeks in my normal desert southwest haunts of Vegas and Phoenix. Daytime highs out this way have been consistently in triple digits while San Francisco has been topping out in the high seventies. Maybe I live in the wrong part of the world, but I ain’t that thrilled with heat. Gonna have a cool time in the cool City By The Bay!

When I get back to Vegas, it’ll be straight to the big Lifestyles Swinger
Convention. Busy! Busy! Busy!

By the way, if you’ve never been to San Francisco strip clubs, do so.
San Francisco has the most wonderfully sleazy clubs in the country.
While other cities debate lap dance ordinances, in SF it’s still pretty
Anything goes. Here’s a little overview of my fav, the Market Street

Market Street Cinema is an old revamped movie theatre. It was originally opened in the 1920s as UA Theatre (Charlie Chaplin was at the grand opening). It remained a movie house for many years before becoming a strip club in the 1980s. There have been several different ownerships the most recent being the Bijou group which owns it in conjunction with Deja Vu. DejaVu in fact, owns all but a handful of the clubs in SF, acquiring them in bankruptcy court (the result of a dancer suit over tip outs won by the dancers) I believe I am essentially correct on this information but certainly if anyone more familiar wishes to add/correct anything, please do so.

MSC is located on Market St (Main St SF) in a rundown area known as the
mid Market area (more on that later). It has a large marquee listing
the stars appearing each week. Above the marquee and on signs gaudily
posted in the entrance, you will see the club’s slogan “See The
Beauty, Touch The Magic” proudly proclaimed. Entrance occurs through
a long, brightly lit entry way with nearly naked promo pictures of the
stars and other dancers (viewable to passers by on the street). Once
inside the doorway, you will come upon a booth containing the
DJ/Manager of the shift. Admission is $20. The first section of the
club (which your 20 bucks gets you into) is known as the main stage
area. The actual main stage is in the back of the room, with a large
number of very old theatre style seats facing it. There is a short
runway that goes out into the crowd. In the back, are several rows of
lap dancing booths for those not interested in watching the stage
shows. The lighting varies but generally it is kept fairly dark in
this room.

On the main stage, shows begin at 11 am and go to the wee hours of the
morning. There is usually one or more features who perform 4 times
daily on stage plus select house girls. Those at the stage hold up tips
for the dancers. Depending on the girl, many will leave the stage for
a mini lap dance often times allowing the customer to touch their
breasts and buttocks while dancing. Around the room a wide variety of
house girls (different ages, body types, ethnicities etc) will “hustle”
customers for lap dances or a trip to “Sin City”.

Entrance to “Sin City” (found at the side of the main stage) requires
another fee (it has varied a bit but anywhere from $10-$20). Sin City
has several rooms including the “Cinema Stage” (a small theatre where
girls will lap dance while the customer watches pornos), The “Bangkok
Room” a very nicely anointed stage area with comfortable seats
(unfortunately there are rarely any performances) and the “Playland
Stage”, a small, intimate stage room with comfortable seating designed
for dancers to come down for mini laps and touching for tips. There
are also throughout “Sin City” numerous private booths (special ones
for the stars) where customers can receive private shows with the
dancer of their choice. Rates and services are negotiable but
generally on the inexpensive side. The atmosphere is decidedly
laissez faire with a huge discrepancy of opinion on the quality of the

San Francisco has a long tradition of non enforcement of prostitution
laws (behind closed doors) and the club has certainly taken advantage
of that. Just before my last trip there, MSC received a scare in this
regard. Down the street, the ownership group owned the Strand
Theatre, a big old movie house showing XXX features. The Strand had
fallen into decay becoming a den of crack dealers and whores. After
an investigation by SFPD The Strand was closed down and in an even
more uncharacteristic move a dancer was busted for prostitution at
MSC. For several weeks there were no “extras” offered at MSC although
by the time of my visit last week things seemed to be back to normal.
Although no outsider knows for sure, there is a movement in The City
to redevelop the area of Market Street where MSC is located. Some
feel that ultimately The Cinema may be targeted for closure.

Before (and if) all this occurs, anyone who can should consider a trip
to SF and a visit to The Market Street Cinema. It’s old (some feel
rundown) but there is no denying it’s uniqueness in the American strip
club scene. It’s one of the few places anywhere combining the highly
charged atmosphere of strippers with open promotion of favors. There
are other SF clubs where extras can also be obtained (most notably
Mitchell Bros and New Century) in a more upscale (and in Mitchell’s
case equally but different unique style) atmosphere but none has the
“love it or hate it” feel of The Cinema.
