Work environment[ edit ] Strippers perform striptease for a number of reasons, predominantly to make money. The physical attractiveness and sex appeal of the dancer determines the business she tends to generate.
There are no job prerequisites; formal training is minimal, primarily on the job and provided by more senior dancers. Dancers learn a set of rules, such as: As long as she can "sell" herself, she is capable of becoming an exotic dancer.
By the s, the pole dancing and highly-explicit imagery associated with today's performers was widely accepted and frequently portrayed in film, television, and theater. In a bikini performance, both breasts and genital areas typically remain covered by revealing attire while dancers provide services and entertainment.
Go-go dancers will retain their tops and bottoms for the duration of their performance.
A stripper whose upper body is exposed but the genital areas remain obscured during a performance is said to be topless. Touching of strippers is not permitted in many localities. However, some dancers and clubs allow touching of dancers during private dances.
If permitted, during a lap dance the dancer grinds against the customer's crotch while he or she remains clothed in an attempt to arouse or bring the recipient to climax. Due to the common practice of hiring strippers as contractors, not as full-time employees, strippers must deal with extreme job insecurity, unstable pay, no health benefits, and the requirement of paying fees to the club for technically renting their stage.
Dancers use props such as make-up, clothing, costumes, and appealing fragrances to complete their character and maintain their " front. An essential draw of the strip club is the live entertainment, which the vast majority of the time are the strippers.
Dancers effectively entertaining customers are the key to generating revenue by keeping the customers on site and enticing them to be repeat visitors.
House dancers work for a particular club or franchise. Feature dancers tend to have their own celebritytouring a club circuit and making appearances. Porn stars will often become feature dancers to earn extra income and build their fan base. High-profile adult film performers Jenna Haze and Teagan Presley among others have participated in feature shows through the USA, as did now-retired stars such as Jenna Jameson.
Entertainers dancers are often not actual employees of the club itself but allowed to perform as independent contractors for a predetermined house fee.
During each set of one or more songs, the current performer will dance on stage in exchange for tips. Where legal or legal restrictions are ignoreddancers may offer additional services such as lap dances or a trip to the champagne room for a set fee rather than a tip.
Strippers can be contracted for performances outside the strip club environment. Some strippers will only strip for private engagements and do not have a regular affiliation with a strip club. Much like activities inside the club, different dancers have different comfort levels for services they will provide during a private party.
Aside from advertising for striptease services outside the club, an unknown percentage of strippers also work in other aspects of the sex industry. This can include erotic and nude modelingpornographyescortingand in some cases prostitution.
Stage performance Most clubs have a dancer rotation where each dancer in turn will perform for one or more songs in a fixed sequence which repeats during a shift.
More informal clubs will have dancers take turns when a stage becomes empty or have a free flow of entertainers where the stage has any number of entertainers who wander off and on at will.
Feature entertainers are not usually part of the rotation, and have set times where they will perform that are advertised throughout the shift. If a DJ is present, he or she will emcee the rotation and typically announce the current dancer s on stage and possibly who to expect in future sets.
Tip collection During each set of one or more songs, the current performer will dance on stage in exchange for tips. Dancers collect tips from customers either while on stage or after the dancer has finished a stage show and is mingling with the audience.
A customary tip where customers can do so at the stage is a dollar bill folded lengthwise and placed in the dancer's garter from the tip rail. Other common tip methods are to insert the dollar into the stripper's cleavage from the hand or mouth, or to simply place it or toss it onto the stage.
Tipping during a stage performance is prohibited by some clubs due to restrictions in local ordinance or past incidents on the premises. Each club and dancer will have individual tolerance levels for customer interaction including tipping.Hahahhahhahah!
