How to Become a Stripper at the Best Strip Clubs: Getting Hired
Mar 26 2012
Learning how to become a stripper has saved countless women and their families from the harsh alternatives like bankruptcy, poverty, or not putting food on the table for their families. It has also served women in being able to afford a college education when their families cannot. 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.
Now, I know you’re excited about getting hired as a stripper, so it’s time to go to a strip club yourself. You might as well have a look at clubs you might want to dance in, so choose a club relatively near you, either in your own city or, if you prefer, just outside your usual traveling circles.
It’s probably best to go with a friend, especially a male friend, since some strip clubs frown upon unescorted ladies (competition for the working dancers) and some services are only allowed with a male client present. You might be allowed in if you tell the hostess you are considering working there, but don’t count on it. If you do go with a female friend, make sure she “gets it” and can be supportive of your interest in becoming an exotic dancer, and will take you seriously as you explore this opportunity.
It’s a good idea to check out new clubs during times you would want to be stripping, because clientele and general atmosphere are surprisingly different on different days and at different times of day. Though you are going in as a customer, remember you are also thinking of working there, so be sure to present yourself well. Be respectful that the dancers are working, pay for their time if you want to talk with them about their experience working in the club, and let them know you are thinking of being an exotic dancer yourself so they will tell you what you need to know.
The following are some good questions to ask:
1. What are the names of your top managers? Which manager is working now? Could I please speak to him/her?
2. What time is the best time to come in and audition?
3. Do I need an exotic dancer’s license? Where do I get this? Do I need to bring my driver’s license and/or social security card?…
4. What are your best nights to work?
5. What are your hours of operation?
6. Do I need to bring money for a locker and for a house fee?
NOTE: Be nice and act in a professional manner. Many times the hostesses at the front desk have a say in who gets hired as well. Usually they will try to blow you off because they are busy collecting money at the door, so do try and ask for a manager.
Not every man likes large breasts or a tight butt, so appreciate what you have and carry yourself well. Who knows, you might even get hired right then and there on the spot!
Gentlemen’s clubs have a variety of women working in them, not necessarily airbrushed women you see in magazines.
When you arrive at your chosen strip club, make sure that you go to the front desk and let the hostess know that you are interested in becoming a dancer there. Be friendly and smile! Shake hands with everyone you meet. Look your best. When in doubt about your outfit, wear whatever makes you feel most confident.
The hostess will either call a manager or take you back to his office. Someone on staff will usually come out and look at you, which is a final approval before they even bother talking to you. It may be the manager or a bouncer, or a house mom. Sometimes they will view you in the dressing room and ask you to walk around; occasionally they will hire you on the spot in your normal clothes.
I recall auditioning at one club as an exotic dancer in Houston. I was looking great that night and the hostess immediately called a manager up after I told her my intentions. I happened to be there at the same time as another lady that was just not cut out for the job. In order to avoid obvious discrimination, the manager told both of us that they were not hiring at that time. I knew he was covering himself because gentlemen’s clubs are always hiring. After being rejected, I managed to catch the manager as he was leaving (after the other girl was heading for the exit), and I informed him that I was really serious about working there because I was an evacuee of hurricane Gustav the week prior. I had traveled for hours to work there. I even told him that I had regular clients at my home club that currently live in Houston, and that they would come spend money there just to see me. The manager then went to get an application and hired me right on the spot. Sometimes it takes a little persistence and effort but you can often work the situation to your favor!
