    Hey guys- was wondering if there were any gogo dancers on here? I am thinking of applying at a few places in LA to do it- mainly for money but also because I've been frustrated/pissed with some situations lately and want to meet new people... I have a friend that is a good hookup for it.

    Any pros/cons?
    How's the money? Hours? Days of the week?

    Thanks icon_smile.gif

    haha I do have tiny undies. I won a dance contest ($100) just the other weekend so I feel like it'd be a good thing for me. I love to dance, love to be at the bar so I'm really gonna pursue it. Flying to LA tomorrow to see my friend and meet some people that hopefully can get me a job.

    I'm gonna look at dancing at Mickys, the Abbey, and Ultra Suede. I know a lot of the dancers dance at different clubs on different nights of the week.

    There's funny chapter about being a go-go dancer in Joel Derfner's book Swish: My Quest to Become the Gayest Person Ever and What Ended Up Happening Instead. He said people who wouldn't look at him before suddenly became very attracted to him when he was dancing.

    very nice! WEHO ( west hollywood) is TOUGH competition ! like thats the epicenter of gayness !! lol

    if i were you id check out the websites and see what their gogo dancers are already like - you need your only "style" but you also wanna fit their mold. ie- if you need to shave everything, tan, make up whatnot !

    id put you more on the jock side so idk maybe show up in costume ??? icon_smile.gif any audition songs you have in mind?

    I was a go-go in West Hollywood (and Silverlake) for three months.

    LA is a bit different than other major cities because the vast majority of venues are booked by ONE person. Seriously. He is sort of like a go-go broker. I got connected with him by flirting with a go-go on Grindr.

    It's possible to find some events booked by promoters or producers directly, but your first step should be to e-mail this one person with pictures of yourself (no nudes). If he likes what he sees, he'll have you audition at an actual night. You'll get up on a box for a song or two, and if he thinks you'll go over well with patrons and bar owners, you'll get on the monthly schedule.

    Yeah, you and probably 10,000 other people in LA/OC now =P.

    Dancing was great money. It let me eat when I would have starved, and it sure beat a lot of other jobs.

    I know nothing about the industry but you're better looking than some of the go-go dancers I've seen in Boston! Bet you could do well...

    I'm going to be honest, I don't know much. But from what I have seen... The dancers have been amazing, 6' foot gods basically with amazing bodys! I mean you might be good, but I'd say you're only cute, and I'd definitely go to the other guys first. Iunno, try it out. All you can do I guess.

    you haven't been to LA then sweetie- there are some with some pudgy guys/thin guys/guys with banging bodies/guys with not so great bodies.

    But this is coming from you- an asshole from your previous threads. But thanks icon_smile.gif
