    They do make some money I heard, but you lose your dignity in return.
    It's really up to you, but think about the pros and cons, and how it'll be in the long run.

    I don't think you have to lose your dignity. If I'm good enough to give you a dolla then I'm in no position to judge.

    What do I know about you? For all I know you can be an accomplished med. student working to help your ill mama. Meh, if you are ok with it thats all that matter.

    Strippers and gogo dancers are of the same feather IMHO...

    Ummm.
    To me, this really sounds like an unambiguously bad decision. Unless being a stripper is your dream job, here is what your tradeoffs are:

    PROS:
    -Immediate money

    CONS:
    -Money isn't all that much as far as I'm aware off
    -Especially when you consider the much better jobs you can get without having this job history
    -Some people may see it as objectification, idk about you

    Hmm. Sounds a little like you need the money, and this is a way to get it. There may be other better ways to get money depending on how much you value the stripper experience and whether it has any negative impact on your self-regard and future. I don't think anyone can decide this for you since some criteria will definitely be more important to you.
    Very personally, I would take a job that would give me work experience in whatever I want to do long-term, and save up for strip lessons instead so it doesn't compromise on future employers seeing my past career as a stripper. This may or may not be important to you!

    Being, as you said, "super shy," could very easily sink this idea.
    But, then, it could be just the thing for overcoming your shyness.
    You'll never know until you try it.
    Practice at home, in front of some friends, and see what they have to say.
    BTW, it shouldn't have anything to do with your dignity.
    Have the attitude that you're out to have fun, to entertain, and to make a buck. All good.

    Haha! You just reminded me of a funny story.
    My friend's mom's coworker is currently an RN, but she used to be a stripper to pay off school. True story.
    My friend, who's currently studying to become a nurse, plays with the idea. She always threatened to become a stripper everytime her parents annoy her, and they'd get MAD! She's somewhat considering it tho. lol!
    I wonder what her response is gonna be when her kid asks her how she paid college off...

    A friend of mine is 50 and has been stripping for about 30 years now. She has made a ton of money and done well for herself.

    It's awkward for her sometimes when she meets people because she is immediately judged. However, as friends we love her for her vivacious attitude, hilarious stories and the smile that instantly comes on my face when I see her. Friends matter, strangers don't.

    If you don't care what you do for a living and have the body..do it! If I was smart I would have done it when I was young, people judge me anyway and I'm not a peeler.

    At least now I'd have a crapload of money living oceanside on the west coast instead of the barren, cold winter prairies. icon_smile.gif

    I think you misunderstand I'm not planning to tell any of my future employers, I'm a student so its harder to work with full time clases

    And this guy just posted a thread asking our opinions on whether he should be a go-go dancer:

    What the heck is going on here? If we're in such a recession maybe RJ should create a "Career" forum.

    I say go for it.

    But don't forget, Toluene can cause dizziness, nausea and vomiting if inhaled, and can cause nerve damage with prolonged exposure thru skin contact.

    So wear that respirator and non-porous gloves and make sure the work area is properly ventilated.

    easy money

    Why not go for some not-so-easy money that will give you relevant work experience too? If you're not doing it because of interest, maybe it'll be doubly productive for you to earn money and boost your CV at the same time ;)

    This is just me, but I think others have similar thought processes so it's important to hear all sides. I would NEVER date someone who is, was, or intends on being a stripper/gogo dancer. Something to keep in mind in case your dream guy has the same thought process. Ultimately, do it for you! There are other ways to make money and unless you're hotter than your competition (other strippers at the establishment) all that's going to happen is you'll be standing in your underwear watching others make money. Good to think about BEFORE you start.

    This. As I ripen toward 40, I realize that while I have no regrets, I can certainly have some "what if" ideas.

    That said, then you see stories like the teacher in the Boston area who just got exposed by a local Fox affiliate. He's an English teacher and was exposed as a former fetish porn star named Hytch Cawke.

    This is what happens when you hire reporters with absolutely ZERO investigative skills... they can't come up with anything better than a teacher who had a past life that has no bearing whatsoever on his skills as a teacher.

    do it for YOU. you wouldnt believe all the hardworking, respectable young dancers/strippers who are doing it to pay for school or help out a family member.

    anyone who judges you would in reality just be jealous of your body and confidence

    besides, who the fuck cares what other people think? if you live your life to make sure you arent judged negatively, you will be very miserable indeed.
