Sex question women always ask strippers revealed

You’d be forgiven for thinking Melbourne-based stripper Will Parfitt was Hollywood heart-throb Channing Tatum.

Parfitt, originally from London, has gained millions of followers on social media through his uncanny resemblance to the magic mike star – and he’s made a fortune along the way.

With nearly six million followers on TikTok, the British-born performer is now Australia’s most-requested male entertainer, revealing to podcast I’ve Got News For You he makes between $700 and $1000 per show, “depending on how long they want me to stay”.

The Magic Men co-owner has been performing since 2015, and shared with host Andrew Bucklow the sex question “every girl” asks male strippers – whether they get “excited” during a show.

“We always get this question. But it’s so different – ​​when you’ve got the adrenaline and you’re nervous, and you’re obviously performing in front of sometimes up to 1000, 2000 girls in the crowd, it’s the last thing you’re thinking of,” Parfitt said.

“Even though you’re doing sexual movements or you’re grinding on the girls, you’re not in that mind frame. You don’t think of it as sexual. Because it’s like, I guess, dancing on stage – so you’re just thinking about your choreography.

“But every time we get asked this question. The girls are like, ‘How do you not get turned onstage?’ But every guy I’ve ever performed with says the same thing – we just don’t think of it.”

Asked whether women get handsy, Parfitt admitted that “they sometimes do.”

“Because I always go on at the end of the show, I always get the drunk girls, and they’re always the hardest to deal with,” he explained.

“We do pick girls out of the crowd, so you’re trying to communicate with them while you’re on stage, or try and give them little instructions so they know what’s going on, but they do get a bit handsy. I’ve definitely left the stage with a few scratch marks.

“But some girls don’t care. If they’re wearing dresses – sometimes I try and pick a girl who’s wearing pants because I’m like, if you’re wearing a dress, there’s a high chance it could go above your head when we’re doing like different moves and stuff – but they just don’t care.

“They’re like, ‘I don’t care, I just want to go on stage’. They’re on stage in their underwear – they’re stripping more than us on that stage sometimes.”

As for whether women request him to perform “other services” after a show, Parfitt said it wasn’t out of the ordinary.

“They do sometimes. I think with the industry we’re in, obviously, they put us in the same category as doing more than just performing,” he said.

“I’ve definitely had a few offers for that, especially at private events that you go to. But no, I’m just a performer.”

Larry Emdur reveals measly pay he received for The Castle cameo

Larry Emdur has spilled on the shockingly low pay he received for appearing in cult Aussie classic The Castle.

the Morning Show presenter, 57, made a small cameo as himself hosting The Price Is Right in the 1997 comedy, during a scene where Tracey (played by actress Sophie Lee) appears on the game show.

“45,000 worth of prizes, the luggage needs to be more than $640, it needs to be less than $740 … Go!” he is heard saying as Dale Kerrigan (Stephen Curry) narrates the family’s highlights over the years.

The Seven host’s appearance was small but iconic – but, as he told podcast I’ve Got News For Youhe only pocketed a tiny amount for it.

“It was only like $123 or something like that, because it was just going to be a little indie film, no one had any idea where that was going,” Emdur explained to host Andrew Bucklow.

“They came in and shot the thing, we did it in a commercial break, and then they sent me a poster and a check for $123 dollars. (The Castle) went on to make tens of millions of dollars.”

During his interview with IGNFYEmdue also opened up about his beef with “sneaky” Karl Stefanovic over former Seven host Lisa Wilkinson.

He explained that plans were in place for then-Weekend Sunrise host Wilkinson to become his co-host, but that Stefanovic had instead lured her over to the Today Show.

“In the weeks after that audition, I introduced Lisa to Karl Stefanovic at the Logies,” Emdur revealed.

“And then he went about his sneaky little ways, which he does, and he somehow dragged Lisa over to the Today show.”

However, Emdur explained that there were no hard feelings, as it was the “right move” for Wilkinson.

“I think Lisa had different things to do other than The Morning Show at the time, so it was a reasonable move and actually made sense, so we went back to audition a few more people and eventually landed with Kylie (Gillies) on the couch. , which was just a magnificent result.”

The situation could have made for some awkward run-ins over the years, but instead, Emdur said he and Wilkinson now “laugh about it all the time.”

It’s not the only juicy Logies-related incident revealed by Emdur in the podcast – he also lifted the lid on his wild Logies afterparty with friends star Matt LeBlanc in 1998.

According to Emdur, the American actor had been looking “so bored” during the lengthy evening that he’d felt compelled to try and turn his night around.

“I was standing at the bar and in walks Matt LeBlanc with an entourage around him, and he just looked so bored,” Emdur told I’ve Got News For You.

“So I convinced the barman to give me a bottle of Sambucca for Matt, and I went over to him and I said, ‘Hey, do you want a Sambucca? You look so bored’, and he went, ‘Are you Italian?’ and I said, ‘No, does it matter?’ and he went, ‘No, let’s go!’

The result, Emdur explained, was that they ended up drinking “every bottle of Sambucca in Crown Casino” that evening.

“It was a very, very funny night … We were like two very, very naughty little schoolboys,” the TV host said.

He then revealed that LeBlanc had left a note under the door of the hotel room he was sharing with his wife Sylvie, which read: “Dear Sylvie, your husband got me very drunk. Love Matt.”

Aussie dumpster diver grabs huge amount of free groceries

A savvy shopper has revealed how she spent only $300 for an entire year on groceries after she began dumpster diving for free food.

Sophie, who used to love in Sydney but is now in Denmark, documents her dumpster dive ‘hauls’ on her Instagram page, which features bench spreads of fresh fruit and veg, packaged meats, cases of drinks and pretty much anything else you could ever want to buy at your local Woolies – all without spending a cent.

“I started dumpster diving myself in Sydney in October 2020 … my sister sent me this video of her dumpster diving in Denmark and I was like, ‘Oh, I wonder if you could dumpster dive in Sydney?’” she told a podcast I’ve Got News For You.

“I was so amazed at all the things that I could find in the dumpster and that kind of shocked me.”

Sophie is among a growing, albeit quiet, community of people who regularly frequent the industrial bins of supermarkets and grocery stores in order to find food.

While living in Australia, Sophie dumpster dived for a year, meaning she spent a grand total of only $300 for necessities while living off here vast hauls of freebies.

But while Sophie dumpster dives regularly, it’s not because she “has to” for financial reasons, it’s because she “wants to”.

I’ve started to do a lot of research on the environmental part and to see what an impact that all this food has,” she explained.

And especially in Australia … it’s like billions of dollars each year that is just thrown away. It’s a huge problem.”

While the concept of dumpster diving might seem dangerous or even disturbing, the sheer quantity of edible and often pricey food that is thrown out due to use-by dates means there’s a surplus of “free” food sitting in industrial bins.

It’s why Sophie began documenting her dumpster dives on Instagram – both to spread awareness about Australia’s food waste problem and to encourage others to join in.

Supermarkets throwing away billions in edible food

According to Food Bank Australia, 7.6 million tonnes of food is lost or wasted every year, 70 per cent of which is still fit for consumption.

Despite the existence of charities and not-for-profits dedicated to redistributing close-expiry or damaged but edible goods, use-by dates and manufacturing defects continue to be the biggest causes of waste.

“I remember I found 12 chilli sauces one day because one of the (glass bottles) had broken in that package – so they just threw everything out instead of taking out the broken one and just selling the rest. But they threw everything out,” Sophie said.

“One day I came home with 11kg of gum. And I calculated that if one person were to have one piece of gum each day, it will last for almost 10 years.”

How much does it save?

Here’s exactly what Sophie hauled in to prepare for a house party in October last year:

How to dumpster dive: rules and safety

Sophie said that over her almost two years dumpster diving, she has learned the vital importance of maintaining good health and hygiene practices.

And there are other rules and practices that the community of dumpster divers adheres to.

Established dumpster diver ‘Big B’ explained to I’ve Got News For You that prospective divers must adhere to ‘the code’:

1.Safety first

Dumpster diving is more than rocking up to an industrial bin and finding a prize item at the edge. Most likely you’ll be cutting open bin bags and sifting through actual rubbish.

“Be prepared to have the necessary tools, gloves to be safe – always be safe – and use tools that are going to make the job easier for you,” Big B said.

To ensure what you’re eating isn’t going to make you sick, generally don’t keep products where the packaging is broken or damaged.

When it comes to meats and dairy, always smell-check and be wary of any potential contamination issues. With fresh fruit and vegetables, if it looks good, smells good and you’ve washed it thoroughly, you should be OK.

Sophie said in order to make sure your fresh food nabbed from a dumpster is as fresh as possible, make sure to rifle through bins during the evening straight after stores throw away their produce. In Denmark, however, fresh produce from the previous day is thrown away in the morning.

2. First in, first served

It comes to no surprise that making sure you have mutual respect for other divers will only promote a safer diving experience.

“If you come across someone on the dumpster already, let them be. Say hello and just carry on to the next one,” Big B said.

“If you’re asked to move on, just move on, don’t cause any problems.”

3. Leave the bins tidier than when you arrived

Nobody likes a slob – even more so when your bins look like a possum got to them.

But Big B also said that cleanliness while dumpster diving is more than just a respectful gesture – it also helps to prevent stores from deliberately sabotaging edible produce.

“If you want to continue going into these dumpsters without any issues, or (without stores) locking the bins or destroying them other merchandise, you have to leave it cleaner than how you found it,” he said.

Once bins are locked by stores, or relocated to private property, it becomes illegal to dumpster dive. Ensuring that stores leave their bins publicly accessible allows dumpster divers to continue their practice safely and legally.

Sophie noted how, before she left Australia, her local grocery store started to “cut the packaging” and “smash the fruit” before throwing it in the bin.

4. Don’t be greedy

Once you get the hang of dumpster diving, it can be tempting to stash away kilos of food found in a single haul.

But with so many products found close to or at expiration, hauling more food than you can consume or share can do more harm and pose more health and safety risks than just leaving it behind, Big B said.

“If you know you can share it, then share it. Otherwise, you’re only changing the geography of the rubbish, if you’re not using it or doing anything with it,” he added.

“I share almost 95 per cent of what I find – my donation pile is greater than my ‘keep for myself’ pile.”
