Future Strippers: What to Expect During Amateur Night

Sexy Stripper: This could be you!If you’re interested in becoming a stripper but want to do a test run before diving into the business, trying your luck at your local club’s amateur night is a great way to do so.

Amateur nights are usually well publicized by the strip clubs that put them on. As you would probably expect, they aren’t publicized in major news papers but rather, in local or stripper publications. Search on-line for “stripper amateur night in (insert city name here)” and you should get a few listings. If not, call strip clubs in your area and ask them if they have an amateur night coming up.

The best thing about amateur night is that you can experiment with stripping without any commitment. The next best thing is that you can win some cash! Woo Hoo!!

Here are a few things to expect during amateur night:

(1) Plan on staying a few hours longer than what they advertise the event to be. So if they advertise that it is from 10pm to midnight, plan on being there by 8:30pm and staying until 1am.

(2) Most likely, the judges will make first and second place a tie, so they can build anticipation and have a ‘dance off’ for first place.

(3) A lot of times, the judges are just guys they pick out of the bar and as such they aren’t the most objective. Don’t take it personally if they don’t choose you or they score you unfairly. You may also have veteran strippers, managers, bouncers, etc. be part of the judging panel.

(4) It’s a good idea to bring two outfits in case you decide one of them doesn’t appeal to you once you get there. Also, if you are in the tie breaker, you’ll have the option of changing outfits if you want, but it’s not necessary :)

(5) If you’re going to use stripper platforms, practice with them at home (and from reading my eBook, you already know about the non-slip stickies to add to the bottom of your shoe if you need to).

(6) If you get nervous, it’s okay to have a drink, but limit it to one so you’ll still be in total control of what you’re doing.

(7) You may not get to pick your songs, but have two in mind just in case.

(8) SMILE, let your personality show through, have fun, and you’ll do great! :)

How to Decide if You Should Become a Stripper

Have you ever wanted to become a stripper but weren’t sure if you could do it?

Below is a step by step guide to help you figure out if becoming a stripper is something in your future.

Step 1: Using a piece of paper and a pen/ pencil, go through each of the steps below and answer each one with a ‘yes’ or ‘no.’ At the end of the exercise you’ll have a better idea of whether or not stripping is a profession you want to pursue.

Step 2: Are you old enough to become a stripper? The minimum age of an exotic dancer depends on where you live and what type of club you’ll be dancing at. Nude clubs don’t serve alcohol and therefore the minimum age is 18 years old. However, at a topless bar/club alcohol is served and since the minimum age to buy alcohol is 21 (National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984), the minimum age to dance there is also 21.

Step 3: Do you want to make a lot of money? Dancers generally make between $80 and $100 an hour.

Step 4: Are you comfortable being naked/ topless in front of strangers? Although being nude or topless is slightly uncomfortable at first, your comfort level will increase over time.

Step 5: Do you want/ need a flexible job schedule? Dancers generally work part time and are afforded the benefit of being able to vary the hours and days they work. When first starting out, you and the club manager will agree on a certain set of hours, however with time, you’ll have more flexibility and be able to make changes.

Step 6: Do you have a proportional sized body? A common misconception that women have is that all dancers must fit a certain ‘cookie cutter’ body shape such as 5’ 6”, weigh 105 lbs, and have a 36DD bra size. This couldn’t be further from the truth.  Every customer has different taste in women whether it is their hair color, the shape of their body, their ethnicity, and even their boob size. Although every customer has certain physical traits he finds attractive, every single one of them has one thing in common that dancers need to focus on—making him feel special. Making a customer feel special isn’t done with the size of your breasts, the color of your hair, or the color of your skin but instead with your personality. Tall, short, blond, brunette, big boobs, small boobs, no boobs… there’s a customer for every type of woman.

Step 7: Can you handle rejection? Being able to handle rejection is an important part of becoming a stripper. Although rejection may seem personal, it’s not. The customer may just be having a bad day, be out of money, or may have just walked into the club five minutes prior.

Step 8: Are you personable? You may be the right age, have the right body, and be able to handle rejection, but if you’re not personable, you will have a difficult time making money. Part of making money is being able to talk to customers and make them feel special. As the old saying goes, “you catch more flies with honey.”

Step 9: Look at the paper you’ve used to write down your answers. If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to most of these questions, you have the potential of becoming a successful stripper.

Learn how to be a stripper

There’s been a long history in Hollywood of actresses, at some point in their career, deciding that the next film they do… will involve less clothes. No one can explain this phenomenon, and not too many are complaining. It’s just a shame that most actors aren’t brave enough to do the same (although that doesn’t include Ewan McGregor and Harvey Keitel, who are no strangers to revealing their best supporting actors, if you know what we mean).

Anyway, the results of these disrobing ladies has often made for cinematic immortality — which we felt the need to celebrate in some way. So, after plenty of research (some might say, a bit too much research) we reveal to you now the eight greatest movie strip scenes in movie history. Oh, and when we say “strip scenes,” we mean “strip club scenes” really, just if you were looking for clarification on our selection.

Please note: There’s no nudity in the clips below but they are of an extremely racy nature — so users with high blood pressure and heart problems should beware. (There is also graphic language.)

1. Rose McGowan in ‘Grindhouse’
As movie intros go, they don’t get much sexier than this turn from Rose McGowan in Robert Rodriguez’s 2007 sci-fi horror flick. Of course the mood does change slightly when she does her weird mouth thing at the end, oh, and when you find out that she has a machine gun for a leg.

2. Salma Hayek in ‘From Dusk Till Dawn
Possibly the most classic strip club scene of all time. Miss Hayek appears on stage with a snake around her neck, sticks her foot into Quentin Tarantino’s mouth and then turns into a vampire. “Now that’s what I call a f***** show!” says George Clooney at the end, perfectly summing it up.

3. Natalie Portman in ‘Closer
Clive Owen’s getting flustered, and it’s no surprise why. Natalie Portman plays its surly with a fantastic pink wig and little else. This scene gets extra points for having The Prodigy and (just at the end) The Smiths playing in the background.

4. Jessica Alba in ‘Sin City
Any fans of the graphic novel will be aware that the scene where Nancy (played by Alba) first appears is when she dances completely nude on stage. The eagle-eyed amongst you may notice that Alba doesn’t do that here — but there probably weren’t that many complaints afterwards.

5. Daryl Hannah in ‘Dancing At The Blue Iguana’
Full marks on the fancy pole work performed by Daryl Hannah here, although she loses points on giggling half way through it. What makes this scene most fascinating though is when you think, my god, that’s the mermaid from ‘Splash’!

6. Demi Moore in ‘Striptease
Moore was paid $12.5 million to do this movie which, at the time (1996), made her the highest paid actress on the planet. So was she worth the money? Well, Ashton Kutcher probably thinks so. And her accountant.

7. Jamie Lee Curtis in ‘True Lies’
This lady had a big male following after her ‘revealing’ display in the comedy ‘Trading Places’ in 1983. But it’s to her credit that 11 years later, at 36, she still managed to make jaws drop with this incredible private dance for the governor of California aka Arnold Schwarzenegger. He gets hit over the head at the end of this scene by a phone, but he probably didn’t mind one bit.

8. The Men of ‘The Full Monty’
We know this is a token male effort, and we apologize in advance. But having said that, this classic Brit movie from 1997 does contain not one, but six strapping, er, middle-aged fellas. Which evens up the quota of women to men in this list don’t you think? OK, maybe it doesn’t, but it’s a fun moment all the same – with the best finale of them all.

News: “New Missouri Law Bans Stripping at Strip Clubs”

Pic by: CafePress.com

“JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Strip clubs and adult stores in the state will have to keep their employees clothed, minors out and doors shut after midnight under a new law. Gov. Jay Nixon signed legislation on Friday that imposes new restrictions on sexually oriented businesses effective Aug. 28.The law bans full nudity, alcohol, patrons younger than 18 and touching between seminude employees and customers. New strip clubs and adult stores will have to be at least 1,000 feet from homes, schools, churches, libraries, parks, centers and other sexually oriented businesses.

The Missouri Supreme Court struck down a similar law approved by the Legislature in 2005. That legislation also prompted a federal investigation into how it was handled by the House.

Critics contend the rules will hurt the state’s economy.”

Strippers and Mirrors – How To Use Your Surroundings

Sapphire, New York

A lot of strip clubs pad the perimeter of their club room(s) with mirrors to give the illusion that the room(s) is(are) bigger. As a beginner, you’re probably more concerned about making a good impression on the people at your stage show then thinking about the walls, but I’d like to give you something to think about.

You can use the mirrors around you to your advantage. The most obvious is being able to see yourself and your form. When you’re just starting out, you may be a little self conscious and unsure about yourself, so getting a different perspective may ease your fears. By doing this, you can make slight changes to your routine when you see something that doesn’t look as appealing as you thought it would.

You can also use the mirrors around you to see how your customers are responding to your stage dance without staring at them and making them uncomfortable.

As you read “How To Be A Stripper: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know But Were Too Afraid To Ask,” you’ll notice that I’m all about personal and money safety, so naturally, I would advise you to use mirrors to keep a watchful eye on your money box and the people around it.

One thing to be careful about is that customers can see you in the mirror too. If you’re up on stage don’t make a bored or grossed out face when you think no one’s looking and then turn around facing your customers with a fake plastered smile… there’s a good chance they saw that and needless to say, you’ve probably cost yourself some tips!

Video Taping At The Strip Club

Exotic dancers should be aware that some clubs video tape and record everything that is happening at the club. Although management’s main intention is to keep a watchful eye on club patrons and thieves, a stripper’s every move is likely to be caught on tape too.

The standard was to have seven tapes, one for each day of the week. When Monday’s tape was used up it was stored away and Tuesday’s tape was used the following day, and so forth. When the following Monday rolled around, the same tape from the previous Monday was used. Most clubs re-recorded over old footage within a week and anything you did was permanently erased.  However, with more modern technology, some club owners use thumb drives or video feed recordings to a more permanent and secure off-site location. With the latter option, the recording may be held for weeks, months, or even archived on DVD for longer.

Knowing that a stripper’s actions are video taped isn’t intended to scare women out of becoming an exotic dancer – it is intended to make strippers aware that there is a watchful eye in the sky. Although this can be beneficial to dancers, for example if a customer does something that the dancer wants the management to investigate, it can also be harmful. Because of the lax and often times playful setting a strip club portrays, dancers get ‘sloppy’ and sometimes bend the rules. It’s important to know that although the bouncers didn’t see it, there’s a chance that it could be reviewed by management.

Most of the time management isn’t going to say anything to you unless you did something that could jeopardize their license, but its best to keep your wits about you and stay focused at work.

Another thing to consider is that now days with the iPhone, Blackberry, and other camera equipped phones, customers too could be taking video or snapping photos of you. If this happens, and you aren’t okay with what he’s doing, make sure you talk to the customer and ask him to delete the image or video he’s taken of you. Although you have to deal with the club’s videotaping, you don’t necessarily have to with the customer’s. Involve management if you feel that it’s necessary.

Although you’re getting topless or naked at a club, it doesn’t give customers the right to tape you and exploit your images outside the club, so don’t  be afraid to let him know that what he’s doing is not okay with you.

Funny: “Stripper Rant” – Best of craigslist

This ‘Stripper Rant’ from the Best of craigslist cracks me up :) Not sure where number 10 went… hehe

Stripper Rant


Date: 2006-03-27, 3:42PM PST



1) Hey you over there, holding that one dollar bill in your hand with a death grip and waving it around at me like it’s the fucking deed to Trump Towers… what the fuck do you want me to do, grow another pussy?!? It’s a fuckin’ dollar, put it down on the tiprail and blow my world away already.

2) You losers that come into the club for a lapdance with NO underwear or boxers and thin-ass, nylon shorts, so we slip and slide on your hard-on (which always feel like a sharpie pen ~ fine point)…fuck you.

3) You with the thick-ass jeans, this was an impromptu visit, eh?

4) Don’t pull my thong up during a dance and ask me if it felt good. IT DOES NOT FEEL GOOD.

5) Hey you, Loser, the one counting out the 20 bucks in one dollar increments, rubbing your fingers between each one to make sure you are giving me just that one dollar. Yes, you.

6) No I will not just let you “slip it in real quick” for $50 more bucks.

7) Yeah, my tits are real. As real as my affection for you.

8) If you cum in your pants, you have to tip me an extra $100 for being a lame-ass who can cum in their pants from a lapdance.

9) Stop asking me out. You’re a smelly, fat loser and the only reason I’m smiling and cooing at you is because I want your money. Outside of the club I wouldn’t even fart your way.

11) Stop bitching at me about the goddamn two drink minimum. First of all, your breath ranks (what’d you have for dinner, garlic and shit?), you’re about 172 lbs. overweight, and you look like Jay Leno. More importantly: I don’t give a shit.

12) Don’t bitch at me about the $10 non-alchoholic beer either. Hide a bottle of Jack in your coat pocket next time like everyone else does.

13) My horniness is in direct proportion to your income.

14) No, you CAN’T SMOKE. Dumb. Ass.

15 ) Boys, don’t sit in the front row with your “homies” and act all engrossed in some deep conversation during a girls performance because you want to look like you’re too “cool” to notice the hot, naked girl in front of you. It’s a clear sign that you ain’t getting any.

16) DON’T SIT IN THE FRONT ROW IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO TIP. Fer chrissakes!!!!!!!!!!!

17) “So what do you guys do when you’re on your period?” Answer: I lap dance with guys in dark pants.

18) STOP trying to grab my tits!!!!!!! That’s extra.

19) SHOWER FIRST, you nasty fuck!

20) I had a feeling you weren’t going to tip me, so I took extra care to rub my lip gloss on your collar and wear extra glitter lotion and obnoxious perfume before our dance.

21) Hey cheapasses: please don’t come to my work. Just stay home and jack off to “Desperate Housewives” instead. It will save us a both a lot of unpleasantry.

22) Stop asking me why I do this job and try to get all psychologically analytical on me. For the money, you moron, that’s why.

23) No seriously, my real name is Sparkle.

24) NO, I will not take a dime sac for payment. I can tell it’s oregano anyway you stupid mutherfucker!

25) Sorry, I don’t do that. Ask the ugly girl at the bar with the black roots and overbite.

26) I can see it’s your first time at a strip club. Let me explain the dynamics to you. If you want a fuck or a blow-job, go to the ugly chicks. Hot girls don’t have to do “extra services.” I can give you some recommendations for a small fee.

27) It is not okay for you to bounce me on your cock like a baby on a knee. Not okay.

28) Stop complaining about how short the song was. It felt like the fucking maxi-single to me.

29) Yes I will fuck you, but only for 10 grand. More if you’re ugly. So basically, more.

30) DO NOT come into the club looking for a girlfriend/date. It’s like me going to PETA looking for a steak.

31) Girls–what’s with the pole smell? Can we do a little hygiene check? Nothing than worse than twirling around the pole and getting a whiff of stale pussy.

32) Girls–stop lip-syncing to the song you’re dancing to on stage. Especially if you don’t know all the words.

33) Girls–if your toes curl and hang over your platform shoes a la’ Fred Flinstone, you need to go up a size.

34) Girls–drowning yourself in Angel perfume is just as bad if not worse than the BO you’re trying to cover. Take a goddamn shower, you smell like lapdance funk.

35) Hey DJ! You suck!

36) Girls–may I suggest complete sobriety before getting tatted up? Tattoos should be meaningful, or at least semi-meaningful, or at least semi semi-meaningful. That fucking dancing llama on your ass is so lame.

37) Girls–some songs just should not be stripped to. Please. No Disney soundtracks (you know who you are, you fucking weirdo), Sade, Boys II Men, or Bjork. For the love of God, Please.

How Strippers Should Handle A Customer’s Advances

I received an excellent question from Katrina, one of my blog readers, in my ‘Ask Shy a Question’ page and wanted to share my thoughts on the subject with you. The question was:

“The biggest problem I run into dancing is how to deal with the guys that are basically there to ask you out. It seems like the majority of them try. What is a better response than “I don’t date customers” or “it’s against club rules” that you can use to be polite and not piss off potential clients? Thank you! :)

A common situation that exotic dancers find themselves in when working is when they have to figure out how to let a customer know they aren’t interested in dating or going home with them, yet still keeping them interested in spending money.

Although there isn’t a magic phrase that can accomplish both not hurting their feelings and also ensuring that you’ll continue to get cash from your customer, the main thing to focus on is the point you’re trying to make –you’re not going to date or go home with him.

The type of customer who’s there to ask dancers out rather than enjoy the customer/dancer relationship, as it was meant to be, is generally a short term customer. He’s there to find a one night stand or girlfriend and isn’t necessarily interested in spending money at the tip rail or on private dances. I discuss this and other types of customers and how to deal with them in chapter 10 of “How To Be A Stripper: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know But Were Too Afraid To Ask.”

I’ve found that being honest, even though it might hurt his feelings, is the best way to handle the situation. Katrina’s responses are not only direct, but honest and I think they are both great ways of getting the point across. However, because I was asked to give a ‘better response,’ I think the best way to word your ‘let down’ is to say something along the lines of, “Awww, that’s so sweet of you to ask me out. I’m very flattered and if we had met under different circumstances things might have been different. I treat my job very seriously and have a rule that I don’t date customers or people I’ve met at the club. I’m sorry!”  If he asks you to break your rules, just say, “I’m sorry, I can’t do that. You can still enjoy my company at the club but I just can’t take it further than that.”

It’s very important that dancers create boundaries and make rules to follow. Usually guys accept and appreciate your honesty and are grateful that you didn’t string them along for weeks on end before telling them that nothing is going to happen outside the club.

Here are a few things to consider:

* Although you run the risk of hurting his feelings and losing potential future cash flow, it’s important that he understands that he’s not getting anything other than a dancer/customer relationship with you. This can work to your advantage in several ways: (1) Unless he’s a total douche bag, he’ll respect that you take your job seriously and are setting clear boundaries for yourself, (2) your comment shows him that if he wants to continue ‘seeing’ you at the club, that he’ll have to spend money on you like everybody else.

* If he decides that he’d rather move on and try his luck with another dancer, then he wasn’t worth your time. This just proves that even if his feelings got hurt with your ‘let down,’ he wasn’t going to be a future customer anyway.

* Consider that the guy asking you out might be trying to solicit some form of prostitution from you. What if he’s an undercover officer?

Keep your ‘business hat’ on while working and allow yourself to be selective with whom you do business with. There is virtually an endless supply of customers who’ll visit your club, so whether you get your next dance from Joe Schmoe or John Doe, the money will come. This balancing act can be difficult, but it’s important to remember that although being brutally honest may drive some customers away, it won’t drive them all away.

Do You Have To Have Big Boobs To Be A Stripper?

If you’re considering becoming an exotic dancer, you’re probably asking yourself if your cup size really matters. Some may be surprised that breast size doesn’t play as big a role as you might think it would.

Every customer has different taste in women whether it is their hair color, the shape of their body, their ethnicity, and even their boob size. Although every customer who goes to the club walks in with certain physical traits he finds attractive, every single one of them has one thing in common that dancers need to focus on—making him feel special. Making a customer feel special isn’t done with the size of your breasts, but instead with the size of your personality.

Big boobs, small boobs, no boobs… there’s a customer for every type of cup size.
