On every thread about hen dos the vast majority of posters say how they hate 'traditiinal' hen dos. I realise mn isn't necessarily representative if el, but just wondering how so few mners can like what seems to be the anyone willing to say they enjoy avoid "l plates" hen do?

Yeah! We can have matching tops with 'Lush Henz' or something similar.

"Lush henz"?

For precisely this reason, I am not having a hen party grin

Awful tacky things!

I was early 30s but I had a hen weekend in Bournemouth. I kind've imagined a beautiful hotel where we could just hang around in lovely bars but we ended up in Fawlty Towers (it had iron marks on the carpet people) and going to a tragic club that came with the deal. Also I'd said to my friends "I don't mind a bit of tat" and my hens took it literally, I've never seen so many willy shaped tat in my life. Obviously the willy boppers were the highlight but also the flacid stress penis you could squeeze which was I have to say I was fascinated by (boak). No matching t'shirts or stetsons though for the hens though, just me dressed up in bride-to-be stuff.

We had a lot of fun, I think all the better for the willies (we decided it must be some kind of primal fertility thing too) and not being in a posh hotel. My most snobby friend (works in fashion yah) said "Oh my god I'm having the best time ever", after previously being a bit sneery about the hotel. And I think the tat provided a talking point for my friends, some of whom didn't know each other beforehand.

But I am a bit of a snob about groups of hens/stags dressed in the same outfits - it's just all a bit weird.

Somebody mentioned the chippendales and not finding them sexy?

I have never found normal male strippers at all sexy, infact, turned me off with in your face vulgarity.
But I saw the original 1970's chippendales on stage on TV and they were super sensual, trained gymnastic dancers/performers actors and could use their bodies to express genuine sensual sexyness.

Even my mum was flushed in her face and me all over. They were mesmerising.

It is your hen do, not your friends. Real friends do not scorn what you want to do and call it boring even if they think it.

Oh my eyes envy <= nausea emoticon wansock you've put me off my dinner sad
I worked with a wanker who turned up for his first office fancy dress party (he'd been there about 2 months) dressed as a used tampon. That link has just brought it all back.

I shall now go and make a 'felch' costume out of felt and foam, take a photo and pm you grin

I assume they appeal to council house tenants?
