While it sounds like fun to round up a bunch of strippers and have them take their clothes off, you actually have to be extremely careful about how you go about it. Many of these "adult entertainment" companies are not as reputable as, say, your bank. So follow these important tips:

1.Make sure to call around and compare prices. While you don't necessarily want the cheapest, you do want the one that acts the most professionally.

2.Many companies may tell you they can't guarantee an "entertainer" unless you book her over the phone during your initial call. Do not be persuaded by these types of threats. This is a sure sign of a rip-off artist.

3.Get any deals you make in writing. Most reputable companies will fax you a copy of any contract agreed upon. Also, ask for a written description of the "show" for any entertainment you book.

4.To put it delicately, agencies may send entertainers to your party that aren't exactly of the "quality" you expected when you booked them (e.g., they smell bad, they have no teeth, they're hairier than you are). If this happens, you'll have no choice but to take another swig, squint your eyes, and let them in. This is why it's vital to prepare in advance - ask friends what agencies they have used successfully in the past before committing to one. However, you should complain to the agency later if you are unsatisfied.

5.Ask whether photographing or videotaping is allowed. Usually, it's taboo. You don't want an angry stripper - or far worse, her 300-lb. security guard - confiscating your camera later on.
