Your model will be dressed totally in his birthday suit as he strikes poses and shows off all his different *ahem* angles.
One of our most popular experiences is the cocktail making class. Not only does this involve lots of alcohol but it will get everyone hands-on behind the bar as you learn to mix, muddle and shake up some of your favourite drinks.
