Stripper Shoe of the Month – Mar/Apr/May

Hi everyone!

As some of you may have already read on a previous post, I’m planning my wedding and have been mia from the blog for a few months. I apologize to anyone who’s been on the look out for new and exciting stripper shoes in the Stripper Shoe of the Month section. The wedding is in 10 days, and I think I’m finally caught up! Yay, I can blog now!!! :)

So this post is a triple hitter and as usual features stripper shoes I think you should check out. And as you know, I don’t publish or promote shopping sites, so you’ll have to do your own comparison shopping by using the shoe’s name in your online search.

For March, check out this 7″ Platform with Blue Lights. It’s manufactured by ‘Karo’s Shoes’and comes in sizes 5-12. Model number: KS:0032-BlueLight.

For April, check out this Glass Platform with Money. It comes in 7″ heel/3″ platform or 8″ heel/ 4″ platform. I’d go with the 8″ heel for a more dramatic look ;) This shoe is manufactured by Tabu Footwear and comes in sizes 5-14 (who wears a size 14?!?? –good for drag queens, I guess?) Model number for this bad boy is TS:GLASS-W-MONEY.

Last but not least, May’s shoe is a little more on the dominatrix side. It’s a 6″1/2 heel with lace up, buckles, and a side zipper. Just in case you’re wondering, the zipper is the only thing you’ll use to put your shoe on –the lace up and buckles are just for show. This shoe (boot) is manufactured by Pleasure USA and comes in sizes 6-12. Model number: ADORE-2043

Stay tuned for June’s Stripper Shoe of the Month!

Stripper Shoe of the Month – February

February’s feature shoe is the Delight 615 Sexy Platform Stripper Shoe- designed by Pleaser Shoes.

This shoe has ribbon detail in several different colors which are all adorable, but I personally like the black and red, and the pink and white :)

The Delight 615 only has a 1.75 inch platform and 5.75 inch stiletto heel… which isn’t the ideal height, but it passes –barely though.  It’s available in sizes 5-14, so if you have gigantic feet, you can still buy these.

Just to be fair to all the potential shops where you can buy this platform at, I’m eliminating any direct links to anyone in particular. I think it’s best not to endorse websites I haven’t personally purchased from, but if you search for ‘delight 615 sexy platform stripper shoe’ on Google, you’ll find plenty of places to purchase these bad boys.

Stripper Shoe of the Month – January

To make 2011 fun, I thought I’d feature a different stripper shoe each month. Getting creative with the shoes you wear can help stir up conversation with potential customers all while having fun stripping.

Just to be fair to all the potential shops where you can buy this platform at, I’m eliminating any direct links to anyone in particular. I think it’s best not to endorse websites I haven’t personally purchased from, but if you search for ‘stripper shoes with disco balls’ on Google, you’ll find plenty of places to purchase these bad boys.

January’s feature shoe is a clear 6.75 ” stiletto platform with mini disco balls inside. The price ranges from $35 – $65 depending on where you buy these.

Stripping on Christmas?

Stripping on ChristmasIf you don’t have any family in town or plans for Christmas, working at the strip club might be a good option for you. If your strip club is open during Christmas, why not take advantage of the giving nature of the Christmas spirit?

You’ll find that a lot of your regular strip club patrons don’t have much to do on Christmas and often times will head over to their favorite strip club. Because there’s not a lot open on Christmas, and entertainment options are limited, you might get an influx of new customers too. Also, a lot of your stripper co-workers might be with their families, so there’s less competition. Less competition equals more opportunity.

This is a great chance to bring in some extra cash, so use Christmas themed costumes, music, and spirit to your advantage and have fun with it. I’m sure your customers will appreciate your joyful attitude over the holiday.

Happy holidays!

Strippers: Try Not To Bust Your Customer’s Eye Out

A $650,000 settlement was reached after a strip club patron sued an exotic dancer after being kicked in the face. According to the stripper, the Florida man violently slapped her as she walked around the top of the bar. The strip club boss said it was most likely a natural reaction to being hit. Stripper “Suki” (or who I’d like to call Eye Busting Suki) actually did quite a bit of damage with her heel, when she kicked him because Slappy Strip Club Dude (I’m hoping the name sticks) “suffered from a punctured eye socket and broken facial bones!” Yikes!

You deserved it buddy.  I know that sounds mean, but seriously, if you’re going to violently slap someone, you better watch out. We’re strippers, not punching bags. Jerk.

So how could have Eye Busting Suki handled this differently? She probably should have gotten management involved and/ or pressed charges against him.  I interpret ‘violent’ as pretty serious abuse, so Eye Busting Suki could have filed assault charges. Busting the guy’s eye out was pretty awesome, but having to shell out $650,000 in damages… not so much.

How to be a stripper – a how to guide for strippers

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.

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!
