Best Place to See a Parade of Nude Male Members Completely Erect (2008)

Gaiety Theatre

Giuliani may have cleaned up other parts of town, but there's one thing he cannot keep down, one remaining bastion of artsy sleaze, the GAIETY THEATRE. It's the old burlesque-cum-music revue, a kind of live version of Physique Pictorial. Here, to a background of pulsating music, you'll find full-frontal male nudity enshrined in front of a glittery slash curtain. It's an elderly male clientele, highly enthusiastic, now forced to keep their hands off the goods, but girls take note: These "performers"—less plastic than the Chippendales, raunchier by far—may not be able to dance, but their groove is worth a look.
