First, you may want to know about the type of people that play strip poker. According to surveys the game is most popular amongst 18 – 30 year old males! Although as you’d expect, there are some females who play strip poker too! Students with more liberal attitudes are the most likely people to be found playing strip poker, indeed, in almost every university and college around the western world there is sure to be a student strip poker game at the weekend.
More mature adults do play strip poker too, although in general it is played in smaller groups of between four and six friends, often married couples play the game for amusement in the privacy of their own home.
Origins of strip poker.
There is very little information about the history of strip poker. It gained worldwide notoriety in the mid 1900s and through the fifties, sixties and seventies gained an increasingly large following, particularly amongst students and those under the age of 30. An exact date for the invention of strip poker is unknown, rumors suggest more liberal female poker players would remove items of clothing if they lost all their money and that drunken males would literally lose the shirt off their back. Some suggest strip poker was one of the first poker games, played before money was involved, although this not generally taken seriously.
Why do people play strip poker?
There are two main reasons why strip poker fans play the game.
1, It’s played amongst friends infrequently, nobody gets completely naked and it’s seen as good fun, perhaps played after an evening out where alcohol has been involved.
2, It’s played more regularly with sexual intentions. Swingers parties have been known to organize strip poker games as an “ice breaker” to the evening before moving on to more explicit past times. The game here is certainly not at the fore front of the players minds.
In each scenario, the emphasis is of a light hearted nature, whether it be the start of an evening of the ending, those willing to take part do so for the sheer fun of it.
Strip poker rules.
The basic rules of any strip poker game involve the losers removing items of clothing whilst the winners get to see their naked, or semi naked friends. Generally no money is involved and the game is always played in the spirit of good fun, although it is not for the prudish!
There are several ways in which a strip poker game can be organized, the most popular involves:
A minimum of four players.
A standard deck of cards (52 cards).
A good location to play at (a table with good visibility).
A simple poker game such as 5 card stud or Texas Hold Em is a great strip poker game. After the hand is over, the loser should remove an item of clothing. When one person is completely naked, they should re-clothe themselves and the game can start again. Needless to say, the worst poker players will be the ones getting naked most of the time, so guys, invite girlfriends who have little or no poker knowledge and girls, study up on poker before you accept an invitation.
Strip poker, so long as played in private with consenting adults is generally a legal past time worldwide, however, if you are unsure you should check up on your local laws before organizing a game.
Places to play strip poker.
Almost always indoors, the student dorm’ room or perhaps a couples home/apartment. If you are single and perhaps less inclined to be invited to a strip poker party of less willing to attend one, there are strip poker rooms on the internet too. These are almost always pay-per-view websites and you’ll be playing against a model one-on-one, if you don’t have a webcam then it’s not difficult to cheat, although we suspect the intention is for the surfer to see the beautiful model strip until naked.
