Hen party snub

I am currently organising my Hen Do and really think it would be hilarious to hire a butler in the buff to serve drinks and organise games. However, one of my long time good friends has stated that she wont be coming if we do hire one as its tacky and against her principles. I was rather offended as I thought everyone would rather enjoy it and its not like hiring a stripper. I'm sure we will be more embarrassed than him!

Sounds awful.

But each to their own.

I would hate this and I think it's tacky tbh. Also would be against my principles. Sorry!

Welshmaenad Sat 20-Jun-15 13:29:32

It is grim and tacky, and I'd bow out too. YABU.

AlmaMartyr Sat 20-Jun-15 13:30:12

I'd hate it and wouldn't go either. Sorry.

SoldierBear Sat 20-Jun-15 13:30:46

She's got sense .
Sounds vile
I wouldn't go either

I'd think a group of blokes hiring a naked waitress were well scuzzy. same goes the other way round.

As someone who enjoys strippers...

how us this NOT like hiring a stripper. I smell hypocrisyhmm

The80sweregreat Sat 20-Jun-15 13:33:54

I am a bit of a prude, so wouldnt go along. I feel for the poor blokes doing this for a living!

Is this a reverse?

Either way, it's a horrible idea and I wouldn't come either. Sorry.

If you were a good friend of mine I wouldn't not go but it's very tacky and I'd hate it.

i think this is more tackier than a stripper.....least the stripper will come in do his thing then go
a naked butler would be serving you until you let him go

Sparkletastic Sat 20-Jun-15 13:39:50

I'd politely decline

BadLad Sat 20-Jun-15 13:40:06

You're organizing your own hen do?

ilovesooty Sat 20-Jun-15 13:40:25

I wouldn't go either. It's not something I'd feel I could be a part of.

BabyMurloc Sat 20-Jun-15 13:41:45

Nope I wouldnt go either. I would find it tacky embarrassing and totally unnecessary. It would make me dread what other "fun" could be involved.

Anon4Now2015 Sat 20-Jun-15 13:41:45

How is it not like hiring a stripper? It is hiring a stripper.

I'd be with your friend I'm afraid. I'd wish you well but I wouldn't be going anywhere where people were going to be objectified for other people's fun.

ilovesooty Sat 20-Jun-15 13:42:29

I thought everyone would rather enjoy it

It seems you were mistaken.

pictish Sat 20-Jun-15 13:42:46

I'd not turn down an invite because of it but honestly, it would fail to hit the mark with me. I'm not a fan of smut or innuendo. I don't disapprove as such, but I am missing the humour chip that responds to it. He would do nothing for me.

ghostyslovesheep Sat 20-Jun-15 13:42:48

my idea of hell

why do hen parties have to be tacky?

reni1 Sat 20-Jun-15 13:42:59

I wouldn't come either, it is exactly like hiring a stripper and would be against my principles, too. Ask around the other hens, she is probably not the only one to find this offensive.

Gabilan Sat 20-Jun-15 13:43:22

If it were the party of a really good friend I might go, though for her sake not because I would expect to enjoy it at all. That said, I can't think of any of my friends who would do this and it does sound tacky to me.

Yuk. Degrading, whatever the sex.

Urgh, no way

I've been to 2 hen dos with strippers (both 400 miles from home, 1 extremely close friend and 1 family, neither of which I could get out of)

Both were utterly tacky and envy <vom face>

Actually, I can't put into words how bloody awful they were.
