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.

Awww, the joys of being a stripper at Scores Gentlemen’s Club in New York…

Scores Strip Club - NY

“(Newser) …Kid Rock accomplished an impressive feat Tuesday at New York’s Scores Gentlemen’s Club. He and his 20-person entourage racked up a $3,000 tab before splitting up into separate private rooms…where they ‘ordered lap dances and partied until 2:30am,’ …”

Even in these current economic conditions, strippers are still reaping the benefits happy men, willing and eager to part with their money on beautiful ladies.

One of the benefits of stripping is that it’s a profession that still goes strong even when times are bad. Strip clubs give men a place to forget their troubles and get lost in a sea of g-strings.
