Exotic Dancer Etiquette Inside Your Strip Club

I’m Jennifer McCumber, author of Freedom V, feature columnist for ED Publications Magazine and I’m leading the movement for dancer education at clubs across the country to help today’s dancers become tomorrow’s leaders.

As you venture into this new world you may know little or nothing about, remember that even the pros make mistakes on some of these points of Exotic Dancer Etiquette inside the strip club. Here is an extensive list of things to be aware of, even if you have been dancing for a long time. Think of this as the way you must function in order to enjoy and prosper in this Fantasy Society of Fun!

Exotic Dancers giving Lap Dances

Create a true fantasy experience for your customer! Get creative so you don't have to get "dirty!"

1.    Lap dances are a more private, one-on-one activity and should not be done near the stage or the tip rail. Not only is it disrespectful of the dancers onstage, it can even be dangerous. I accidentally put someone in the ER one time because he was standing too close to the stage and my heel cut his head open!

2.    Sometimes you may share a stage with another dancer. Don’t be greedy over tips; pick up only what is yours, and share the bigger bills with the other dancer.

3.    At some clubs there are multiple individual stages with one dancer per stage, but each stage should always have a dancer on it. If you are due to be onstage, be there, because a dancer on another stage will be waiting for you and losing time and money because of you.

4.    Personal Hygiene – This is most important!    Make sure you are always freshly shaven everywhere! Armpits, bikini line, your arms if they are hairy, legs and toes. Make sure if you have larger or pendulous breasts to put deodorant in your creases and folds. Anywhere where there is sweat, or skin that rubs against skin, there is body odor potential. I can’t tell you how many times I have smelled body odor on dancers that do not put deodorant on the sides and under their breasts. It is important to be freshly showered before your shift and have clean hair. You don’t want to smell bad for clients!

Exotic Dancing Becomes Socially Acceptable from Society Shifts

From women who’ve worked on Wall Street to women paying their way through college, exotic dancing has saved many women’s lives, careers, and even their children from the alternative of moms loosing their homes and even their jobs in this economy.  All without having to compromise their moral values like in much of the infamous myths about this profession!

If you are apprehensive about doing this business of exotic dance I completely understand! Or maybe you have taken the plunge and there are people in your life that have a big problem with it.  This apprehension happens mostly because society has always trained women to do only what is traditionally considered ladylike, socially acceptable, and polite. This is why most women in the previous century were either teachers, nurses, or secretaries – not that those things are bad at all – but what if a lady didn’t want to do that?  What if she wanted to be an engineer?  Too Bad – secretary school for her!   Women were also told to cover their ankles and shoulders because it was provocative.  I say that trying to control women’s decisions, lives, and limiting their options of FREEDOM for the sake of ego, power, and medieval ideals is the most horrid evil around!  However, things are a lot different now than they used to be, and there are quite a few examples of this.

McCumber working at Hooters

Here I am as a Hooters Girl in College!

Consider the following points of reference.

Working at Hooters. Before I became an exotic dancer, like so many young college women today, around my sophomore year in college I became a Hooters girl. The truth is that exotic dancing is very similar to a Hooters waitressing job; really there is not a huge difference between the two. You wear tight clothes, show cleavage, promote a fun atmosphere – and you get hit on by the clientele quite a bit. At Hooters there are many beautiful women all working in one place, and men come there seeking interaction and entertainment.

At Hooters, there are beautiful, friendly women working there that men avidly come in to talk to. These women give men a “GFE”—girlfriend experience—with an attractive young lady who will simply sit down with them and talk to them about their day. This is exactly what exotic dancers do. We will show men or women that we are interested in who they are and what they have to say, not just in selling them our looks, food, or drinks.

There is, however, one major difference: the income! It’s amazing that I worked hundreds of hours at Hooters during my two–year stay, but within the first few months of being a dancer I made much more money than I ever could have dreamed of making at Hooters.

This is just one example of how exotic dancing is like any other established, respectable business. It all comes down to sales and marketing: The business aspect of exotic dancing is like running and promoting any other company, and it is the best business education you can get as a young person because there is little risk, no going into debt, no overhead and you have no employees. Just you, starting with the basics and learning how to be independently wealthy without the headache of having to get a business loan or please investors on the chance that you might make a profit.

Misbelieves and Truths on How to Become a Stripper

From women who’ve worked on Wall Street to women paying their way through college, exotic dancing has saved many women’s lives, careers, and even their children from the alternative of moms loosing their homes and even their jobs in this economy.  I’m Jennifer McCumber, author of Freedom V, feature columnist for ED Publications Magazine and I’m leading the movement for dancer development at clubs across the country as well as online.

There are some misbeliefs that we need to burst before we immerse ourselves in further discussion of exotic dancing.

stripper money

There are some things that are more valuable than money.

Misbelief Number One: All exotic dancers are prostitutes who trade sexual favors for money.   This dangerous and offensive myth is absolutely and positively not true. In every profession, there are promiscuous women, and exotic dancing is no exception. However, there are an abundance of educated and respectable women – wives, virgins, moms and deeply religious women – in this and all other industries.

Much of this issue depends on what club you choose. If it is a high–end club with strict rules, you will have far less “funny business” going on. Most dancers I know are absolutely against prostitution; they simply dance, talk and entertain, just like I did. You do not have to do anything intimately sexual to be successful and make a ton of money dancing. Just conjure the illusion of fantasy and sex appeal by using your creativity!

One thing you have to remember as a dancer is that you provide what I like to call The Human Experience. Men don’t come to clubs just for alcohol because they can get that at their local liquor store. They don’t come to clubs just for a lap dance, either, because if they want to see naked women they could pick up an issue of Playboy for much less. What they come to the club for is to experience that human interaction with a live, warm, smiling female with personality (and a nice body) to talk to and to make them feel special.

Strip School and How it Empowers You to Make Good Choices

From women who’ve worked on Wall Street to women paying their way through college, strip school has saved many women’s lives, careers, and even their children from the alternative of moms loosing their homes and even their jobs in this economy.  I’m Jennifer McCumber, author of Freedom V, feature columnist for ED Publications Magazine and I’m leading the movement for dancer development at clubs across the country as well as online.

Let me ask you something. Do you have a certain group of people you tend to hang out with more often than not, be they friends, family, or business associates? Would you say you are “comfortable” with them? Sometimes to your detriment? Who you hang out with, what you watch, what you listen to and what you surround yourself with, all matters!

Strippers gossiping

Don't get caught in the gossip and negativity in the exotic world. Stay FOCUSED on making your money to better your life!

Think about the people around you and some of their actions, and things that they have said or might say in the future. The saboteurs, for example, who ask us to eat out with them when we are trying to remain strict on our meal plan. Or the friendly phone call telling you not to bother with whatever it is you are doing because you’ll probably fail anyway.  The gossip.  The blaming other people.  The downers.  The underachievers.

The “friend” who asks how you are doing, but really can’t wait to talk about themselves. I could go on and on, but I know that you know exactly what I’m talking about!

There’s a subconscious layer of fear within all of us, and it lies in the grass like a snake waiting to bite us when we least expect it. That fear leads people to act in strange ways towards us, often resulting in actions that go against their words. Their fear of losing you – of your changing who you are – of your bettering yourself and securing your financial future – scares the living hell out of them – and that fear manifests itself in very destructive and negative ways.

Exotic Stripping: Breaking Through the Barriers of Limiting Beliefs

exotic strip club

The best way to make informed decisions is to visit a reputable strip club yourself! Or tell the naysayers that...

Let’s be honest. Most of the American population does not attend gentlemen’s clubs, so they are completely in the dark about what really goes on in Exotic Stripping. Religious organizations are against them – but there is dirty business in every other industry that goes on in broad daylight, even at places that the average person believes to be respectable. Just look at the White House and Wall Street throughout their respective – if not respectable – histories!

I admit that I have made mistakes in exotic stripping just like anyone else makes mistakes when they are starting out in a new profession. Those mistakes come from not being confident and true to who you are. Some come from inexperience and being naïve. Thinking confidently and thinking outside of the box has allowed me personally to overcome any obstacles I have had to face. And that part is not easy, because too often we are our own worst enemies.

The key to being successful at exotic stripping – or anything else in life that will lead you to freedom beyond what most people ever have the pleasure of experiencing – is positive thinking. Think about how you can do something, not about why you can’t.

Jennifer McCumber how to be a stripper

Our Dancer Seminars are life changing - request a petition to have us come to your club!

Hi It’s Jennifer again and in our last video called, My Stripping Stories and How Women Today are Approaching Pole Dancing as a Career, we talked about how women today are approaching pole dancing as a profession and saving their lives, their jobs, their homes and even their children from the alternative of loosing their homes and their jobs in this economy.  And they aren’t just surviving, they are thriving on an amazing income that gives them the freedom to pay their bills, pay for their education, buy a nice home, a nice car and go on vacation!

You might say, Now wait a second – Do you expect me to actually take this kind of risk? To venture into a sleazy bar – dance in front of an audience – and then proceed to take my top off? That’s truly ludicrous!

But Wait – other than the fact that learning how to be a stripper is a respectable business in today’s world and that you don’t have to compromise your moral and ethical values that we talked about on our last video  – Can you think of any other profession that allows you to go from nothing – having no knowledge about the industry or any formal education at all – to being able to audition after simply watching my videos for an hour or two, and begin making hundreds of thousands of dollars the same day?

My Stripping Stories and How Women Today are Approaching Pole Dancing as a Career

Pole Dancer Stripper

Exotic Dancing isn't as bad as the stigmas would have you believe!

Many of my Stripping Stories on how women today are approaching pole dancing as a career will shock you – including my own. From women who’ve worked on Wall Street to women paying their way through college, you will learn why pole dancing has saved so many women’s lives, careers, their homes, and even their children from the alternative of loosing their homes and their jobs in this economy. The underworld of exotic dancing has emerged from a maze of mystery and misconception into the mainstream with media coverage from respected sources such as CNBC, OWN, FOX news and more.

The first time the opportunity to try exotic dancing was presented to me after I graduated from college at age 25, I swore I would never do such a thing. I thought it was wrong – dirty, unhealthy and unsafe. It was, perhaps surprisingly, my fiance who suggested it to me after he had consulted with one of our dancer friends about the cleanliness and high standards of our local business club. He knew I was on the “30-year mortgage plan” with my student loans and credit card debt, and he wanted to empower me.  But – the point here is – like so many closed minded individuals today, I had never been to a club and I automatically assumed that it was nothing but pimping, whoring and drug use. I was abhorred at the suggestion and shot it down rather quickly.

Reluctantly we went to our local club and started talking to one of the bouncers. The bouncer thought we were really cool so he went and got the head manager. The manager could see that we were serious and professional, and finally he asked me, “What can I do to get you on my stage?” I was flabbergasted!  I thought the prospective dancers asked him that question!  Come to find out they do – but I stood out somehow.

The Top 10 Mistakes that Exotic Dancers Make in Their Clubs

Any attractive lady can be an exotic dancer!

Exotic Dancers come from all walks of life!

Exotic Dancers are certainly a special group of ladies!  You work so hard every night — hoping that you can make something of your life, provide for yourself and a family, pay your way through school, fund a business or other hobbies, and ultimately– you want to be someone. In my previous post entitled, How to Decide Whether or Not You Should Become an Exotic Dancer, I talked about some of the pitfalls and pros of the trade and how to steer clear of making the most common mistakes that most strippers make.

This post adds to the concept of avoiding mistakes to make your career much more profitable.  Night after night during my exotic dancing career I saw entertainers making the following 10 mistakes and it hit them right where it counts every time – their pocket book!  They would go home broke, frustrated, or knowing they could have done way better.  However, they kept repeating their mistakes not knowing what they were doing wrong.

Without further ado, you will find the top 10 mistakes that entertainers make belowI’ve committed my fair share of these myself and I am resolutely determined to help YOU to avoid the following heartache that will make you unsatisfied with your career and make your club want to fire you!

 

Exotic Dancers are sophisticated

Don't be so serious - have some fun with your exotic dancing career!

1. Don’t talk about yourself and your problems with customers.  The customer wants a fantasy experience of admiration, fun and erotic appeal.  Your customers don’t pay a cover charge, rack up a drink tab, and purchase lap dances to hear about more problems! They have enough of those already!  They come to a club to escape reality and find an attractive lady to talk to and interact with who is somewhat intelligent, happy, and maintains a sense of humor!

The Solution:  Do a voluntary exercise –find a customer, go up to them and introduce yourself with a firm handshake and eye contact, and then sit there with that customer and find out about THEM.  Get THE CUSTOMER talking by asking them questions.  Then watch the dollars come in as the cares of the world are washed away by you instead of being enlarged by you!  It’s a tough nut to break but if you are willing to take the risk to break or avoid bad habits the results will be life changing for you.  I’ve personally witnessed the transformation many times.

How to Decide Whether or Not You Should Become an Exotic Dancer

stripper with money g string

Financial Freedom is a matter of what you do with the $100's in your g-string!

Becoming an exotic dancer is a wonderful opportunity to take control of your own life financially, emotionally, and physically.  It requires no college education and many women become exotic dancers to pay their way through college.  From women who’ve worked on Wall Street to women paying their way through school, pole dancing has saved so many women’s lives, careers, their homes, and even their children from the alternative of loosing their homes and their jobs in this economy.

The underworld of exotic dancing has emerged from a maze of mystery and misconception into the mainstream with media coverage from respected sources such as CNBC, OWN, FOX news and more.  Unfortunately, every time a stripper says or does something “stupid” or “irresponsible” it ends up on the news and that hurts the “perception” of the industry.  Few good stories have ever been reported but they amount to many all across the country and over the world.  You will get the truth here!

The ultimate determining factor in Exotic Dancing’s credibility is the fact that there is a major chain of clubs that is publicly traded on NASDAQ – Rick’s Cabaret International.  If exotic dancing was illegal and tangled in an underworld of drugs and crime, the FTC would have never allowed this company to become publicly traded.

I’ve been asked by my readers to create a video on how to decide if exotic dancing is for them.  With all of the popularity and power you have as an exotic dancer it is as easy as ever to fall into the typical banes of society that fame and fortune from ANY industry bring you when you come into it quickly, including drugs, alcohol addiction and unprotected or irresponsible sex.  Just think of how some actors, musicians and professional athletes have fallen into this lifestyle.  It is because anytime people have monetary gain quickly they don’t appreciate the value of it as much, and can resort to irresponsible behavior that is not conducive to their overall success.  This is called the Lottery Winner’s Syndrome.

How to Become a Stripper – Getting Started on Your First Night at the Right Club

Aug 29 2011
By :

Here is the video transcript for your reading pleasure!

Choosing the best club for you and getting started working as an entertainer can be challenging.  I’ve had questions from dancers asking, “how can I present myself to make the most money?  What do I wear?  How do I handle all of the men I work with? How can I avoid being intimidated and feeling sub-par compared to all of the other beautiful dancers?

One of the most important things you do in your life is to make a first impression. Many other exotic dancer stories tell how someone started out horribly, made no money on the first night, and were scared out of their minds, having no idea what was going on. I will help you to avoid this scenario in its harshest forms. Of course, be reasonable with your expectations: don’t think you can just waltz in and make a thousand dollars on your first night! Just do your best starting out and be satisfied with that.
