A new website, StagsandHens.com, has launched to make it quicker and easier to organise a stag or hen party.

The website offers independent advice on topics including activities, nightlife, destinations and speech writing. A unique part of the website is a directory of hundreds of companies offering stag and hen products and services. Everything from archery to Zorbing (rolling down a hill in a giant plastic ball) is listed. Not forgetting accommodation, transport and going abroad. The listings can be filtered by geographical region, making it easy to find local companies.

For those short on time, the site lists numerous stag and hen party organisers offering ready-made packages. For those who have more time and want to make their own arrangements, the site includes hundreds of local companies offering niche services like go-karting, clay pigeon shooting and pole dancing lessons.

A free personal photo album has recently been added to the site, allowing people to share their stag and hen party photos online. Photos can be password protected to ensure that any compromising ones aren't seen by the ‘wrong’ people. Other useful features and functionality are in the pipeline, including a personal party planner.

Andrew Rogoff, director of StagsandHens.com, said:

“Being asked to be the best man or woman is an honour but having to organise the stag or hen party can be really hard work. Expectations are rising and people can no longer get away with a night down the pub followed by a strip club later. Our aim is to make it all much easier by offering a menu of exciting ideas along with links directly to the companies that provide the services”.

He added: “The main difference between us and related websites is that we’re independent. We list both the package operators as well as the local companies offering niche services.“

People are increasingly turning to the Web for shopping and information and the site is already benefiting from this trend with increasing traffic. One of the most popular sections is the list of stripograms. Results from a recent StagsandHens.com survey show that 62% of visitors to the site would like a stripper at their party.
