Choose Las Vegas Valley’s sexiest male exotic performer

Our sexiest cocktail waitress contest was such a hit, we decided to give the ladies their say, too.

Unfortunately, the calls we put out for the valley’s hunkiest firefighter were doused like a flare-up in a wastebasket.

Luckily, Las Vegas also is the nation’s hub for male exotic dancing. So lots of men with bristling biceps were happy to step in.

Vote for your favorite contestant at www.lvrj.com/maledancer until 11:59 p.m. May 3.

The winner will be announced in an upcoming Living section and online.
