Money customers love me. It doesn’t matter that I am covered in tattoos, that I grew up poor and sometimes lack decorum, that I don’t bother with jewelry or curling my hair, my boobs are real and kinda deflating, that I have the world’s most embarassingly tiny ass—business men are my men, all the time.
Why? What really stands out about me? It’s really simple.
I am confident. I smile A LOT, I am sober, I am witty and funny, and I say “Oh stop it!” to at least every other compliment. I am able to talk to them about things that they are interested in—after all, I am an educated business woman, myself! Nothing turns a brainy customer on more than a stripper who is “on the level.” I am constantly told that it is my energy, and the fact that I am tuned in-not zoned out when I am dancing for a guy. Lots of eye contact and ear breathing…yes, it turns them into animals, but rich animals are my absolute favorite kind.
Stripping is not something to do to feel good about yourself. Stripping is something you do to make a customer feel good about himself, then you take his money and do something with it that will give you the desired “I love me” feeling (go to school! start a business! make art! buy a home!) that you were originally trying to obtain by talking a lot about yourself, twirling your hair, and acting like a bitch diva.
So how do you become a witty, fearless, happy stripper? LEARN. Knowledge is power. When you know what you are doing, there is nothing at all to be afraid of. BE NICE. A good core group of dancers is imperative to be happy at your club. If it’s really awful at your club, again, read this and this. Controlling the Vibe is probably the post that I think is the most powerful I’ve posted thus far. LAUGH. This guy wants to see you smile! His wife and kids probably don’t show him much of their youthful, carefree sides. Customers see us as having money, and thus not having problems. Give them their fantasy*!
Please be happy, be safe, and shine from the inside—it shows!
