Molly houses

Hello! I'm trying to find information about molly houses, or the late Victorian equivalent, about the 1870's. In the common room, would it be like a regular pub, except with some of the men dressed as women, or would there have been more sexually explicit activities going on? would there have been something like a live sex show, or some kind of suggestive entertainment? Would there have been couples dancing? Assuming the servers were dressed as women, would it have been an ordinary but low cut dress, or would it have been something immodest like women's underclothes and garterbelt and stockings? Would prostitutes have been working the room, or would that have been a service provided by the house itself? Any info would be appreciated!
