Stripper FAQ 1

"How do I become a stripper?"
It doesn’t take much to become a stripper. Like most any other job, you’ll fill out a job application and potentially be asked to audition for the strip club’s management. A stripper job application is generally a lot shorter than ones you’ll find at other jobs because the strip club doesn’t care about your previous work experience. You’ll be asked to fill out basic information such as your name, phone number, address, etc.

Depending on the strip club, the strip club manager on duty at the time, the time of day you go, your personality, and what you look like, you may or may not be asked to audition. Auditioning means you’ll be asked to put on a mini strip show. Generally, this is done in the strip club manager’s office, but sometimes you’ll be asked to do it on an empty stripper stage.

Stripper FAQ 2

I don’t want anyone to know I’m a stripper, should I strip away from where I live?
Most of the time, strip club customers don’t want people to know they frequent strip clubs either, so generally there’s an unspoken code of silence between a stripper and  a strip club patron where neither will expose the other. However, stripping at a strip club away from where you live can relieve some of the anxiety from having someone you know or used to know in high school, college, or your last job see you and blow your cover. However, additional expenses such as the cost of gas, wear and tear on your car, added travel time, and the cost of a hotel room might be a deterrent. Each alternative has its pros and cons and ultimately it’s up to you to decide.

Stripper FAQ 3

Do I need to have big breasts to become a stripper?
Men like to feel special and your job as a stripper is to make them feel that way. Whether or not a girl with big boobs, small boobs, or itsy bitsy boobs is the one to make the strip club patron feel special doesn’t matter. I know this seems to go against what you would expect but a stripper’s personality and how special you make him feel is much more important. Once you let go of the idea that your boobs, looks, or physical features are what makes a strip club patron into a lifelong customer, you’ll start to make more money.

Stripper FAQ 4

How much money can I make as a stripper?
Generally, strippers will make between $80 and $100 per hour.  Of course, this doesn’t happen right away, and sometimes doesn’t happen for all strippers. How To Be A Stripper shows you how to overcome some of the common mistakes strippers make that cost them time and money. Whether or not you become good at making money depends on how you work the room. How To Be A Stripper teaches you exactly how to do that.

Stripper FAQ 5

Can I strip my way through college?
A lot of girls have striped their way through college, myself included. Not only does stripping give you a flexible work schedule, it also yields you enough money to go to school full time. I strongly suggest going to college while stripping. You’ll have to explain the gap in ‘real’ employment somehow, and saying you were in school is a great way to explain why you didn’t have a job for so long. Tell people you got grants and scholarships to help support yourself while you studied.
Stripper FAQ 6

I’m not in the best shape or look like a super model; can I still be a stripper?
Although there’s no right or wrong when it comes to body type and looks, it doesn’t hurt if you work towards getting in shape and learning how to apply your makeup. Stripping can burn a lot of calories and provide great exercise, so if you start out in somewhat decent shape, you should be in phenomenal shape soon enough. I would strongly suggest yoga and cardio to keep your strength and endurance up. How To Be A Stripper goes into a detailed workout routine and shows you how makeup and strip club lighting can be used to your advantage.

Stripper FAQ 7

How old do I have to be to become a stripper?
The minimum age of a stripper depends on where she lives and what type of strip club she’ll be dancing at. Nude and topless bars have different age requirements and it’s important to know what those are. Nude clubs don’t serve alcohol so a stripper can work there as young as 18 years old. However, topless bars serve alcohol and therefore require strippers to be a minimum of 21 years of age.  Of course, there are a few exceptions and some clubs have been known to hire younger strippers, but these are few and far between. For example, Rhode Island allows minors to be exotic dancers as long as they have “a work permit and are off the pole by 11:30pm on school nights.

Stripper FAQ 8

Do I need dance experience to become a stripper?
Although it doesn’t hurt to have a background in ballet, jazz, or any other more acceptable dance practices, don’t let your lack of it deter you. How To Be A Stripper goes into detail about how to dance on stage, how to give lap dances, how to dance seductively, and how to get strip club patrons drawn in by the confidence and attitude you portray on stage.

Stripper FAQ 9

Can I still strip while on my period?
There’s no need to stop stripping while on your period. Although you might feel like sitting at home and relaxing in front of the TV, there’s really no need to. Stripping on your period can help relieve stress and cramps and actually help your PMS. Of course, you don’t want your blood or your tampon string to hang out, so How To Be A Stripper covers effective methods you should use while stripping on your period.
