The Hungry Duck (lost footage of strip performances from Russian bar; 1999-2013)
The Hungry Duck was an infamous club in Moscow, Russia that existed from 1999 through 2013. It was known for the unique strip performances where the performers would strip audience members nude onstage.
Despite this, there were still rules that had to be followed.
- Only volunteers were allowed to be stripped nude onstage.
- If an audience member clearly does not wish to be disrobed anymore and isn't just naturally nervous, then the member is dismissed, and another is invited onstage.
- The genitals of the performer and the audience member were not allowed to touch physically.
These rules helped negate many of the controversies and negative press surrounding the club. Rarely did an audience member find that things were taken too far, and even when it was the case, many instances were thankfully settled with an apology and without action from the law. Despite these rules however, many accounts claim that audience members were trying to push the limits. Some members tried to push performers to have full out sex with them onstage. Some of these accounts also say that some of the performers went along with it. However, all actual evidence has yet to be found.
The Duck took many publicity videos, and other amateur videos also exist. These publicity videos are easily available online. However, many of the more "wild" amateur ones have notably disappeared. Viewers often recall seeing videos of performers breaking rules and getting full out sex acts involved onstage. There are also apparently a few publicity videos involving female performers stripping down male performers that have been removed allegedly because they were "taken too far".
An unknown compilation video of all the surviving performances also floats around the internet, at 87 minutes long. The rest, have yet to surface. However many both amateur and publicity videos have been found on various porn sites.
