A game of strip poker with two men and two women
Strip poker is a traditional poker variation where players remove clothing when they lose bets. Since it depends only on the basic mechanic of betting in rounds, strip poker can be played with any form of poker; however it is usually based on simple variants with few betting rounds, like five card draw.

Strip poker sometimes starts with all players wearing the same number of articles of clothing, but the rules are flexible. The consistent aspect is the removal of clothing in place of or in addition to the betting of other games. Like other adult party games, activities besides removing clothing and playing cards might be involved. ("Truth or Dare?" type options are often included.)

History

It has been suggested strip poker originated in New Orleans around the same time as original poker in the 19th century, played in brothels. However, strip poker more likely began as a prank among boys, and as late as the 1930s, the current co-ed version was called "mixed strip poker" in England to differentiate it from all-male, non-sexual variety.

Strip poker and poker seem to have derived hand in hand. Some suggest as early as 1830 and indeed derived from saloons/brothels and poker houses. It is said that the girls working in the brothels to pass the time became interested in the game and were allowed to ante in using articles of clothing. They could stay in the game as long as they had articles of clothing left. Alcohol, sex, and poker games simutaneously led to the development of what we all know now as "Strip Poker".

On TV and video

Strip poker based television shows include:



Other strip poker productions on pay per view or DVD often feature pinup models. Examples include:

Both examples featured Playboy models, World Wrestling Entertainment models and other pinup models in a no-limit Texas Hold'em competition. National Lampoon's Strip Poker was filmed at the Hedonism IImarker resort in Negrilmarker, Jamaicamarker. Strip Poker Invitational productions were filmed in Las Vegas. Both productions aired on Pay-Per-View in 2005.

Computer games

The first Strip Poker computer game was written by the German game designer Dieter Eckhardt in the late 1970s using the computers of an astronomical observatory near Düsseldorf. Strip Poker computer games were produced from the earliest stages of video game production and have continued to be released, increasingly from pornospecialist distributors.

In 1982, the Florida computer game company Artworx produced a Strip Poker game for the Apple II computer. It has been ported to many other computers since then, and is still available today.

Strip variants of other games

Many other games besides poker have "strip" variants. In particular, many "strip mahjong" video games have been published, especially by Japanese software companies.As all forms of poker, strip poker also has variations. Recently, strip poker has been available online. One can come on one of such sites, and pick up the player - usually the girl -  and play strip poker. In this game strip Poker online or a strip poker web cam game is conducted using virtual chips. The first player pays only for the time spent in the private poker room. Usually this game is played between two players, the girl from the site and the strip poker site visitor. Both players can communicate with each other through web cams.Game rules can be varied; usually the players discuss them before the game begins.
