Become a Stripper

How to steps on becoming a Stripper | So Cal Stripper Service

  • Becoming a stripper is easy. All you have to do is simply walk into any strip club and apply for a job. That’s it. But before you do anything rash, you might want to consider the options and consequences of being a stripper. By reading this article you will get the information you need kick start your career as an exotic dancer.


    Consider the Lifestyle

    1. 1

      Find out if this is really what you want to do. If you are good, you can expect to make up to $500 during a day shift or up to $1,000+ on night shift. But if you do not know how to handle yourself and “sell” your services, you may go home with no money and in debt. It is not carved in stone that if you walk into a strip club and look good you will make money.

      • Keep in mind that you are competing against 100+ girls in most clubs. Competition is fierce. Yes, the job is based partly on looks. But there are girls who look like supermodels who can leave the club with minus money. Most girls who start stripping do not realize that stripping is a sales job where they are selling their time, their attention and dances for money.

    Be Aware of Your Body

    1. 1

      You will also need to get used to being naked around strangers and strangers trying to touch you. You will have to get comfortable with this and it does get easier with time. They will try (or will grope against your will) the most if you are in a contact club. There are also non-contact clubs where the no-touching rule is strictly enforced. By law in pretty much every state, customers are NOT allowed to touch you, but that doesn’t always prevent it from happening. You have to have a strong backbone and stand up for yourself.

    2. 2

      Make sure your body is toned. You do not have to be perfect, but toned. This means you should be in shape, and eat healthy and exercise.

    Check Out the Clubs

    1. 1

      Find clubs you’re interested in working in. Make sure you know what kind of club you’re going to be auditioning for; go there as a customer. Find out the rules for your country and state, each club may let some rules slip. If you see that a club is letting too many rules slip, go to another club. You do not want to work in a club where there could be harm done to the girls or they are not treated respectfully. There are three different types of gentleman’s clubs:

      • Upscale types. These types of clubs have dress codes and you are often expected to wear a long gown similar to an evening gown only a little more likes lingerie. They often have high house fees and support staff that you are expected to tips out an average of 10-20% of your total nightly income. These clubs are often filled with business men and city dwellers who prefer more upscale establishments so expect to spend a lot of money on gowns and rhinestone jewelry to match your clientele. Also these clubs tend to be large in size and have a lot of entertainers working nightly.
      • Neighborhood Clubs. These types of clubs are a little more laid back and often attract locals or tourists depending on the location. You can be a little more flexible with your costumes and themes. This is usually a good place to start if you are new to dancing as well. Some of the clubs are located in industrial areas and others are like neighborhood bars with topless or nude entertainment.
      • Third tier or dive bars. These are usually located in very rural areas of town and often have less than average clientele. They are usually very lenient with the hiring process and attract a rougher crowd.
    2. 2

      Ask the club you are planning to work in how much they charge to work there and any tip outs (money you give to the club and people who work there, e.g. DJs) and make sure you’re okay forking over up to 50% of your hard earned cash. Different clubs vary and can change nightly also.

    Dress Like a Stripper

    1. 1

      Assemble an audition outfit. You can find stripper-wear in catalogs, porn stores, and various places online. Just make sure your outfit is easy to take off while wearing heels. When you scope out the club, the other dancers will tell you where you buy the stuff you need. Note: make sure you’re aware of the laws of where you are working. Some states expect you to wear a certain type of underwear. All things considered, here’s a list of what you should buy:

      • High heels (ideally stripper shoes, but if you are unsure if you want to dance, a pair of platform heels is fine for now).
      • A thong (find out the laws where you live, most of us wear “regulation” g-strings).
      • Lingerie or legitimate dance costume.

    Practice at Home First

    1. 1

      Practice your routine before you show up for a club audition. Make sure to wear your heels. Dancing and stripping in high heels will be the most challenge part of your routine. Having a mirror or a video recorder will help you see what you look like.

    2. 2

      Pick the right songs. You’ll need to develop routines for three types of songs: fast, medium, and slow. And make sure none of them are boring.

    3. 3

      Don’t do any pole tricks if you haven’t done them before! You can’t really practice them, and most likely what you try to do will not be sexy. You will learn them in time. The best way to learn how to pole dance is to watch videos online. Then, copy the easier moves. Another alternative is to take pole dancing classes.

    When You Show up for Your Audition

    1. 1

      Choose a stage name. You don’t want to become infamous using your real name. Pick an appropriate pseudonym for yourself. And make sure to have an alternative or two. More than likely the name you pick will already be taken. Stay away from over-used names like Angel, Diamond or Rose. There are two ways to proceed when picking a name:

      • A name that sounds relatively normal. Pick something that fits your personality, like Grace or Summer or Hope.
      • A name that’s slightly exotic. As a stripper, you are an exotic dancer. Why not pick something exotic? Gia, Amira or Ayesha would stand out.
    2. 2

      For some auditions you may need to just bring your outfit in a bag, go to the club, and say you want to dance. Make sure you have some ID saying you’re 18, or whatever is the permitted age in your county/state/country. Most clubs will put you on a satellite stage to audition. Others will not have you formally audition, but will instead have you change into your outfit to look you over. Some will even just look you over in the manager’s office while still in your street clothes, so remember to wear something figure flattering. If the manager wants you to “audition” anywhere other than the stage, get out of there! Places like this are either looking for “extras” girls or the manager is a pervert who tries to take advantage of the girls. Other clubs may have amatuer nights or audition nights. It’s always best to call the club before you go and find out what their procedure is.


    • Be aggressive! Don’t ask your customers for a dance, tell them they want to have fun in the VIP room! And if they say “maybe later” or “not now,” don’t give up. Just tell them “Make yourself at home, I’ll be back for you,” with a smile, and walk away. Check up on them throughout the night.
    • If you start to collect too many one dollar bills most clubs allow you to “cash out” by going to the register and giving them your one’s in exchange for higher bills.
    • The most important part of this is not your moves (for sure, these help) but it’s your ability to “sell” yourself. Saying “Hi I’m ___ wanna lap-dance?” will not cut it. How about trying “Hi! How was your day? Oh mine was great!” You’re there to entertain. Treat them like they’re the cutest, smartest, most interesting person you’ve ever met. But if they don’t give you money, in say 2 songs worth, then walk away. You’re here to make money, and time is precious.
    • Move slowly on stage your first times until you feel your groove.
    • Make a real effort with your nails and grooming. Make sure you toes and hands nail colour match and are shaped.
    • When counting your money the first night, or any night, don’t brag or show your money. Always keep your money on you at work, and don’t bring much to work than what you will need in case you do not make any.
    • When you are new at stripping most customers can tell, and the males find this very attractive. They see it as innocent and sexy. Milk it for what it’s worth.
    • To prevent irritation after shaving your pubic area, pat dry and apply non fragrant antiperspirant.
    • Don’t wear glitter or very heavy perfume. This rubs off on the customer and makes it harder for him to be discreet about where he’s just been. You may not get as many dances for this reason. Remember, no glitter, and apply perfume lightly or use a body mist.
    • When trying to get a dance, smile, and put a hand on their hand or shoulder, and make eye contact. Draw attention to your breasts, and use a sultry voice. You may even be able to sit on their lap (it’s up to you if you wanna play innocent here, or give them a ‘preview’), but some clubs are strict about lap dances on the floor, and may even consider sitting on the customer’s lap a no-no.



    • Don’t get drunk at work. Sure, it will help loosen you up, but if something goes wrong in the back room or on stage, you won’t be able to defend or protect yourself. Make sure you only drink an amount that you can handle, or better yet don’t drink anything at all. You are there for a job, not to party. If someone offers to buy you a drink, order soda. Even one drink can be dangerous.
    • Do not ever accept a customer’s offer to do a private show in their home. This is really dangerous and can lead to severe consequences.
    • Don’t solicit private dances from whoever is in the front row (the tip rail) if there’s a dancer on stage, unless you are that dancer! You may piss off an other dancer by costing her tips, which can be dangerous. But if there are enough people at the tip rail, don’t be afraid to talk to anyone that the dancer isn’t currently dancing for.
    • Always clean the pole with alcohol before you start your set – you don’t know where your coworkers have been.
    • Hand sanitizer and baby wipes are your friend. After you get off stage or out of the bathroom, and especially after private dances, use this allover. It also makes you taste bad, so if a customer tries something stupid, like licking you, before you can push them off, they’ll be less likely to do it again. And use baby wipes instead of toilet paper (which has lint, which may be a problem).
    • This may be a rule in your club anyway, but always collect payment for VIP dances up front.
    • Don’t be afraid to walk out of a VIP dance if a customer goes out of bounds or keeps trying to touch you.
    • When first starting on the pole, don’t do anything risky with your heels and tricks. Get used to it first.
    • Never use baby oil on your body and don’t put on lotion before you go to work. It will make you slip and fall on stage, as well as making those that follow you do the same. You could get seriously injured. So no baby oil, and moisturize the night before or a good many hours before working.
    • For some stupid reason beyond any logic, some club designers think it’s an amazing idea to have black lights. This brings out a lot, like tan lines, plaque, and lint (hence the baby wipes). Make sure you stay clean if this is the case (though you should anyway).
    • Learn to play bouncer, especially if the ones at your club doesn’t. It’s best not to work at places like that, but when it’s a choice between there, driving an hour each way, a regular part time job where you make far less, or unemployment, you may have to settle with that. Tell rude customers to show respect or get out. If they’re not tipping anyone, say, “If you can stare, you can share.” If a customer touches you, push him off, and if he goes further, so can you.
    • When walking to your car, carry your keys in a fist, with your longest key sticking out. You can also carry your shoes if they have spiky heels.
    • Don’t give your phone number or real name to customers, or other dancers. They could give away your phone number to clients. It just isn’t safe. Be your persona and if you must, have a cell phone that youonly use for stripping.
    • If you take a cab home, get the name of the company, the driver, and the cab number, and send it to someone you can trust, or leave it with the manager. Make a clear show of recording this information, but don’t offend the driver, and tell him it’s not that you don’t trust him, but you’ve heard too many stories and can never be too safe. They will usually be understanding.
    • Never do “extras” (acts for the customer not allowed by your club rules). You can make money without them and you never know who is an undercover cop, if the manager is watching, etc. If you can’t make money by working clean, find a better club.
    • Make sure to follow the laws for dancing or you will be fired in most clubs. What this means is there are laws for what kind of touching and clothe removal is legal. Stick to the law.
    • Some clubs may schedule you at other clubs in their chain. Find out about them first. While the club you applied at may not let hazing new girls fly, others, the management just doesn’t care. One may be sleazier, or the bouncers don’t do their jobs.
