You Will Need

  • A sexy, easy-to-remove outfit
  • Stilettos
  • Stockings with garters
  • Sexy music
  • Flattering lighting
  • A straight-backed chair
  • Liquor


  1. Step 1

    Choose an outfit

    Choose an outfit. It can be anything from a conservative business suit to a sexy French maid costume -- the important thing is that each article can be removed with a minimum of fuss.

  2. Make sure that no item is tight enough to create bulges or leave marks on your skin.

  3. Step 2

    Snag stilettos

    Pick shoes that will make the most of your legs, meaning something with a high, skinny heel -- the higher and skinnier the better.

  4. Step 3

    Put on stockings

    Put on some silky stockings with garters. Go with classic fishnets, or get a pair with a racy seam up the back.

  5. Step 4

    Set the music

    Get your music ready so you don't run out of tunes in the middle of your performance. Make a sultry mix or playlist, so you know what's coming up.

  6. Step 5

    Set the mood

    Use a light dimmer and/or candles to create flattering lighting, and put a straight-backed chair in the middle of the room.

  7. If necessary, take a swig of something before you begin to calm your nerves and lower your inhibitions, but don't get drunk -- no one likes a sloppy striptease.

  8. Step 6

    Walk the walk

    Begin your striptease by striding into the room like a professional catwalker, one foot directly in front of the other, shoulders back, head raised high.

  9. Step 7

    Begin to strip

    Turn your back on your man and slide your jacket or top off your shoulders. Turn back around and toss it aside.

  10. Maintain eye contact throughout your act.

  11. Step 8


    Put your hands behind your head and gyrate a bit before moving on to the skirt. Turn your back to him, grab the sides of your skirt, lean slightly forward, and slowly tug your skirt down as you wiggle your hips. When the skirt reaches the floor, kick it aside.

  12. Step 9

    Lose the garters

    Move around some more, running your hands along your body, before kicking off a shoe and throwing that leg on top of the chair. Undo the garter and slowly begin to unfold the stocking until it's off. Repeat with the other stocking, then step back into stilettos.

  13. Step 10

    Take off the bra

    Push your bra straps off your shoulder, unhook your bra, slip it off, and fling it at him. Then languidly caress your breasts.

  14. Step 11

    Slip off panties

    Time for the finale! Turn your back on him, slip your hands, palms down, into the sides of your panties, bend forward, and slowly push them down, keeping your legs as straight as you can. When they reach your ankles, step out of them.

  15. Step 12


    Prepare to be ravaged by your very turned-on lover!

  16. Prostitution is legal in Iceland, but strip shows are against the law.
