Groomsmen Confess: 7 Reasons Not to Worry About His Bachelor Party
1. Turns Out the Fantasies He Lives Out Are G-Rated
"My friends and I are huge football fans, but most of us never had the chance to play in full pads, so we surprised the groom-to-be with helmets, shoulder pads — the whole deal. The best part was we set up a camera to tape the whole thing. Needless to say, the groom flipped."
—Chris, 25, New York City
2. Not All Men Love Strippers
"I am not a prude at all, and I like looking at beautiful women as much as the next man, but to me, strippers are not sexy. I am not the only person I know who feels this way, so if the guys want to hit the club, we'll tell them to meet us later at the casino."
—Harold, 34, Washington, D.C.
3. Some Guys Would Rather Party With Their Bride-to-Be
"My bachelor party will be a joint party with the woman I am searching to find. We'll gather friends, go to dinner and get smashed together at an Irish pub."
—Marco, 32, New York City
4. He Gets a Chance to Goof Off and Stay Out Late
"What really happened at my friend Tom's bachelor party? Dinner, drinking and then Ultimate Frisbee in the parking lot — all at 3 A.M."
—J.P., 25, Kalamazoo, Mich.
5. Not Every Guy Is Tiger Woods
"If women have a good and honest guy, then they have no reason to worry in any situation. If they don't, then they should worry about more than Dave's big bachelor party. A cheater doesn't need to wait for a bachelor party to cheat."
—Joey, 27, Chicago
6. He Just Wants to Relax With Friends
"A bunch of us stayed at a resort in Jamaica for several days, just hanging out by the beach, eating like pigs and simply having a good time among friends, away from the hustle and bustle of the city."
—Mick, 29, New York City
7. Most of the Stories You've Heard Are Tall Tales
"I've heard of legends of bachelor parties that sound awesome, but I am still waiting for one to come along. I've been to a few, and they were pretty tame and pretty standard: steak house, strip club, too many shots and puking."
—Alan, 30, Crystal Lake, Ill.
