Estate agent, 63, is world's oldest male stripper

An estate agent over 60-years-old has been recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the world's oldest male stripper.

Bernie Barker, who turns 63 today, a former nuclear power plant worker from New York, only took up erotic dancing in his senior years following a brush with death.

In 1999, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. To keep in shape after life-saving surgery, he became a regular cage dancer at Miami Gold, a strip club in North Miami Beach.

Now he can be seen "hip-shaking like Elvis, moonwalking like Michael Jackson" at Club LaBare, a North Miami Beach ladies' club, in nothing but his fluorescent yellow g-string.

He's even won over 30 male strip competitions, beating contestants young enough to be his grandchildren.

"If I can do these things with cancer at 62, others can feel a little better about themselves and their own possibilities," says Bernie. "I feel young, probably too young!"

Unfortunately, while reading that story, I got a mental picture--not what I needed before my coffee this morning!!!!!!:eek: :eek:

Although, Mick Jagger did just turn 60 the other day--he isn't a stripper, but he does dance all night, and wears some pretty, um, tight clothes!!!!!!!

I am very happy for this ol' guy. Good for him! I admire him for not caring about stereotypes and prejudices. Any age is beautiful if YOU love it.

Two years ago I fell in love with a 52yo man (I was 26) and he seemed much younger than many men my age.
