Will Parfitt, 27, who was born in London but now lives in Australia, is a removalist by day, but has spent the past three years stripping off at weekends.
Will started out as a topless waiter and learned his erotic moves on the job. He has attracted hundreds of adoring fans thanks to his uncanny likeness to Channing Tatum, who played a stripper in the Magic Mike movies.
“I met a club promoter who started calling me ‘Channing’ as a joke. I didn't really take him seriously – he was the one who introduced me to Magic Men,” he told Daily Mail Australia.
Will strips with Magic Men, a Melbourne-based agency which specialises in girls' nights out, from hen parties to one-off private events.
During the ‘busy season’, usually between October and April, he can perform up to 15 times in one weekend.
His show runs for 20 to 30 minutes during which he will strip down to a G-string, or if it's been requested, the full monty.
He added: “The girls get to choose what we wear. They can have a policeman, fireman or a Magic Mike show. I have been a soccer player and a karate instructor, but it's up to them really.”
Will charges £120 for a half hour show – a third of which goes to his agency. His side job can sometimes earn him £1,600 at the weekend.
He says the performances often start “pretty tame” but get “crazier” as the night goes on.
“The later it gets the more ‘hands-on’ they [the girls] get, too,” he joked. “Generally it's the brides-to-be, definitely, who are making the most of the opportunity to blow off some steam before they get hitched.”
Although younger women love his shows, the dancer says performing at an 80th birthday party was one of his most memorable.
He said: “I do remember thinking, ‘Oh my God’ at the time, but she loved it. She was up and about, dancing and getting involved. It was great.”
Will added: “Stripping has a shelf life, but I hope I still have another couple of years left.”
