|A Strip-O-Gram is a form of message delivery in which a woman or
man will perform a striptease while singing or dancing. The word
is a combination of telegram and striptease.
This type of entertainment became popular in the 1970's in the US
and spread to the UK and Europe during the 1980's. Exact dates
are difficult to ascertain however, as there does not appear to have
been any major research carried out on the subject.
Typically a Strip-O-Gram is most often a form of gift given for a
birthday, anniversary or bachelor party. A common practice is for
the strippergram to be dressed in an outfit of one kind or another
and to act out some form of charade connected with this, before
commencing their act - for example a police officer 'arresting'
somebody, a lawyer pretending to serve papers, a jilted bride and
so on, (sometimes this charade will be relevant to something the
intended 'victim' has experienced, such as a divorce,
or brush with the law).
An increasingly popular dynamic in this form of entertainment is
humiliation of the intended victim, with mild bondage (for
example, the use of handcuffs), partial undressing of the victim
and so on. Boundaries vary widely, with sexual acts occasionally
coming into the equation.
