With everything that New Yorkers are enduring right now, it seems like people there could certainly benefit from a beautiful distraction. Die Happy Tonight (DHT), a “members-only” gentlemen’s club in New York City, has begun offering virtual-reality lap dances for free on their website, DieHappyTonight.com (www.diehappytonight.com/virtual-reality-access) featuring the code “livefree”.
The DHT gentlemen’s club has had VR in the works, but the launch “just happens to come at a time where people aren’t leaving their home,” founder Kalin Moon told The New York Post.
“The entire world has seen a drastic change just in the last week,” Moon added. “People need human connection and need to be entertained. VR is a great way to accomplish this from the safety of your own home.”
The VR utilizes a 360-degree video meant to transport the “guest” into the DHT’s VIP room, allowing him or her to move around within the space. The dance experience is meant to be immersive — pan left or right in the videos and you’ll see a fellow guest in the champagne lounge getting a topless lap dance, too.
The new VR dances are available online, on mobile devices and headsets starting this past Monday, March 23rd, for anyone using password “livefree” at signup.
The technology is nothing new — in fact, ED Magazine readers (ED’s March 2018 issue featured VRClubz on its cover) and EXPO attendees have read about and/or witnessed the exact technology that DHT is using if they visited the booth of VRClubz.com.
“We may not be the first to offer virtual lap dances, but we are the first physical strip club in the world to re-create our experience through virtual reality by using our venue and the girls that dance at our events,” Moon also told the Post.
