    Surprisingly this topic is non existent here on RJ but what better time to bring it up...

    Well it's come to this for me after all the times of put up or shut up with my friends. I decided to strip after being egged on and I gave a fellow in the bar watching me a lap dance after I notice saw me dance in my skivvies. Now when I was done the manager told me that should I ever come back to Key West and I wanted a job I can call and I would be in business.

    I don't mind the offer but I don't know if it's ever worth the bother. I see the handsome go-go boys always go with the older more unattractive guys for private dances.

    Does anyone have any experience stripping or whatever? I'm on the fence really... If I can travel to different place in FLA and dance and make enough to cover travel GREAT... but I guess I don't see the negative except the private dance portion. Are there more pitfalls?

    Come on over. I'm off 'till Thursday, and not a damn thing to do here but workout...and my workouts only last like 20-30 minutes (except for cardio days). That leaves lots of boredom time.

    That would be the negative aspect. I will say this about my career choice is that although all those things are benefits some of the perks you don't get too often.

    Too be honest I've been looking for a way to supplement my income for a while, I hate my car payment and ready to be done with it.

    I know this isn't really the route to take but it's an option that has been suggested more than once.

    Being broke, or having insufficient income from a job will not pay the bills. Having "morals" that prevent an obvious source of additional income will also not pay the bills. Bill collectors don't take "morals" for payment.

    Personally, my moral standards have plenty room for adult work. I consider the adult entertainment industry just as professional of a career as any other, and dancing is just an intro to it for some people. Who knows? He might end up enjoying it and making it an entire career with an income that pwns most other career paths. icon_wink.gif

    Your body is your asset so don't give anything away. So don't tolerate idle hands getting too friendly (being slapped on your passing juicy bum etc), you're not there to be harassed. It's really good money for the hours you actually work and to be paid to be dancing and enjoy yourself is pretty damn good in itself. Snaps for Ricovelas.

    I don't think morals was mentioned.

    An adult career path can have a serious impact. Many jobs are still decided by people less accepting to career paths such as stripper or fluffer. While at an interview you obviously can beat around details trying to hide the fact your were an "entertainer" for a known gay bar or strip club might not endear you to the HR individual or duo your meeting with. Personal bias will still seep in. In a nation where half the population still considers themselves conservative I wouldn't take my chances.

    As for a career in adult entertainment.... I dunno for every person who lived that life and enjoyed it I've meet a dozen who didn't make it, didn't make enough money, and left addicted to drugs.

    Another option is looking into becoming a bartender..... you can still take off your shirt and work with gays. Less touchy that saying your were a stage dancer icon_cool.gif

    Whenever I hire someone at work, I look for ability to do the job, and CONFIDENCE. I could care less what they've done for income as long as it was legal, and as long as they have to balls to say it without apology. Trying to "hide" previous income choices is a sign of insecurity, and I don't want that where I work.

    I'm sure most other employers are the same. My boss knows I run a muscle fetish paysite. He doesn't like it because he's not gay, but he doesn't give a damn that I do it because I have the balls to say it up front with confidence. He does, however, try to pwn female strippers off to me in an attempt to turn me straight or bi, in hopes that I will eventually create a straight or lesbian porn site. icon_lol.gif

    Yeah you should do it, stripping is an extremely secure and long lasting profitable career.

    Was this at the Bourbon Street Pub in Key West, by any chance? They do have strippers, often performing right on top of the main inside bar. But guys can also pay to take them into a private room, closed off only by curtains, and I've glimpsed some pretty intimate, totally nude things going on back there. And yeah, ya usually gotta go with the guys who pay you, not always winners themselves.

    But whether at Bourbon Street or not, that's not all that uncommon at those places, and you have to consider if that kind of backroom action is part of the deal, and the implications regarding your health, your pride & reputation, and even the risk of police sting operations. On the other hand, strictly being a cage dancer isn't quite as risky.

    Yes was a Bourbon Street. I've paid for dances with strippers before not there but, it's been nothing but fun on my part. I didn't take any liberties upon myself but I do realize that some guys might not think no means no.

    I mean I'm game, I just need to start slow and at least have a friend that will guide me in the right direction.

    I keep waiting for Dancerjack to come in here. If anyone can give solid advice, it's him. All I can do is be a cheerleader and wish you well.

    I have friends that strip But they're girls. What i've learned from them is that the older he is and the uglier he is the more he will pay you. And the more money he will have. And the hotter he is and the younger he is then the less money he will have. Most of my friends need to be drunk out of there mind at work or else they cant preform. Also I've learned that its all about eye contact and seduction using eyes. Thats what usually wins themicon_wink.gif Good luck!

    Everything in bold might be true for your friends, but it does not represent the majority. ALL strippers I've known were very professional about it, and approached it as any other job. They also stay sober so they can make accurate decisions about what they do. Being drunk is a very bad idea, especially at closing time. As far as the guys go, I've seen many hot guys tipping $20's, and very ugly guys catching a free grope whenever they can (and usually getting thrown out of the club).

    Well in theory it all sounds good--do some stripping and pick up some cash, but in reality it doesn't often work out that neatly. I've known a lot of strippers (men and women) and usually stripping goes hand in hand with drinking and or drugs. As it turns out, it's easier to deal with someone you find unattractive pawing your ass if you loosen up first with a couple of shots or a couple of pills. The problem is that this leads to sloppy thinking and the money available increases as you are willing to do a little "extra". I realize not everyone heads down that path, but too many do for the issue to be ignored. The money feels good, what you're doing to make it probably won't--how do you plan on dealing with that? If your answer is to answer unhappiness with chemicals, I'd steer clear of stripping.

    When you're hot, that's going to happen in any bar or club, regardless if you're stripping or not. Just push them out of the way and keep dancing. icon_biggrin.gif
