How to Become A Stripper – Trinity’s Experience (Real Life)

real_life_storiesHey Girls,

I had an idea which would be really helpful for anyone wanting to become a stripper.

One of our fantastic blog followers  said she would kindly share her experience with us.  Trinity who first wrote in and told us she was going to become a stripper was about to go for her audition. For those of you who follow the blog, you will know that She got the job! YAY!

Here what she wrote on OCT 4th

Mia,

This was soo helpful!! As is howtostripper.com, AMAZING info. My first audition is tomorrow and I’m pretty confident but also a bit terrified. Any tips on calming my nerves?? I’m generally a very fun, flirty and outgoing individual and I’m hoping to bring that to my stage presence but I need a little help getting past the nerves!

Good luck to everyone!!!

Trinity xoxo

So I thought it would be interesting to track Trinity’s experience so everyone can learn.

Feel free to ask Trinity anything you want, she is really enthusiastic about becoming a stripper and I am sure will be happy to answer questions.

So I asked her why she wanted to become a stripper and here is what she wrote:

Trinity :

I wanted to try stripping, of course, to earn some extra cash. I had a part time job that I busted my tail at to get maybe 300$ a paycheck and it just wasn’t cutting it. I began to HATE my job and I felt really unsatisfied with how hard I worked and how little I earned. People had told me a few times I should become a stripper, I thought jokingly, because I had a great personality and was very fun loving. When I decided to start thinking about it seriously, I started Googling. I kid you not, I Googled How to Be A Stripper. And it gave me some really amazing blogs and sites like this one!

Then came the hard part, talking to my boyfriend and my close friends. I decided I wouldn’t tell my family as I knew it would cause a huge blowout and I wanted to avoid it for my sons sake. Surprisingly, my boyfriend and friends were very supportive and helped me get my outfit together and even set up a practice strip audition for me! I know, it sort of sounds like this was just another random, daily decision that wasn’t a huge deal. It was.

I had to think very hard about if I could handle dancing for strange men, if I would feel ashamed or dirty about it afterwards or even possibly losing family and friends over it. Granted, my friends have been amazing and my boyfriend as well, but it was still a huge decision to make. I thought I could handle dancing on stage though I’d never done it before and just hoped I didn’t make a fool of myself.

It was unsettling the first few times, being naked and trying to get into the persona of someone else, but after the first night, I knew this was something I could do. I LIKED doing it for the most part and I have fun with my routines. I don’t feel ashamed or dirty or like its my ONLY option because it isn’t. It’s a choice I made and that I have no regrets about.

    Hey trinity
    what was your first dance like…i am so scared to try it
    its great to hear it from a new girl like me
    :)

    I just signed up to your blogs rss feed. Will you post more on this subject?

  4. Trinity on October 23rd, 2010 10:08 pm

    JJ,

    My bf is still alright with it! He does have some jealousy issues with it sometimes but he trusts me and that’s what makes it easier for him. Plus…we like the money lol. Remember to be open and honest with him and talk with him about your idea to strip BEFORE you make any decisions. In my opinion, talking to him about it before will make him feel like the two of you are making the decision together and that you wanted his approval. :)

    If he still has issues, take him to the club your thinking of working at and let him see how the club runs, he may be more comfortable once he knows the rules and regulations.

    Daisy,

    I was terrified I’ll be honest!! I’ll be covering the first dance more in depth in the blog but I had NO experience whatsoever and was RIDICULOUSLY nervous, especially after watching the other girls. Just smile and try to be confident. As one of the girls I work with said, “You can teach a girl to dance but you can’t teach her to have a personality.”

    Just be you!!

    Trinity I am thinkin about becoming a dancer & ur story truly helps me but my friends questions it tho some still will support me. They say they think I can be really good but its not good to become one. My boyfriend even said he’d leave me if he found out that I started doing it. I work a good payin job but after bills I don’t have much $ to work with. What u think I should do? Should I not tell my boyfriend?

  7. Trinity on October 24th, 2010 5:59 pm

    Qui,

    Personally I don’t think you should lie about it, by omission or otherwise. However, losing friends and lovers is something you may have to deal with. One of the girls I work with said she lost a lot of friends when she started dancing but that her real friends stuck with her.

    What you need to realize is that a stripper is an ENTERTAINER and a LADY first and foremost. You don’t want to work at a club that is shady or lets their girls do things that are dirty or make you feel uncomfortable. Maybe your friends think that a stripper does more than just dance.

    As for money, there are good days and bad days. You will not have a guaranteed amount of take home money each night BUT it all adds up and even bad nights can earn you more than a weeks paycheck. If this is something you truly want to do, I’d keep your day job for two weeks – month to see how well you do and if you can survive on stripping alone.

    I think you’re in a hard spot right now and you need to think very carefully if the money you’d make is worth what you might lose. Personally, I think real friends would support something that doesn’t hurt you or degrade you and puts food on the table.

    I also think maybe you should talk with your boyfriend about it more and find out WHY he doesn’t like the idea of you dancing. Is it trust issues? Is he embarrassed to be dating a “stripper”? Many of the girls I work with are in good, happy relationships or married so it can be done!!!

    I hope that helps and please let me know how it goes for you!!!!

    Trin <3

    Trinity
    I apprieciate the advice thank u so much.

    As for my boyfriend his reason is he doesn’t want his girlfriend dancin naked in front of other men. When I tell him that thers dancers in good relationships living comfortably he says it doesn’t matter.

    I thought on this for months & no matter what I still wana giv it at least a try. I’m not gona leave my job at least not til I see how it works out. Also I decided that if I did start dancin to keep my bizness & personal life seperate.

    Thanks again & ill keep u posted

    Qui,

    Does he know that the men are not at ALL allowed to touch you, on stage or during private dances? And if you decide to go ahead with giving it a try, I recommend telling him that is what you are planning and go from there. Prepare yourself for the worst though. But ask him maybe if he’d like to go with you to audition.

    On a side note, I personally recommend as well as my boss and girls I work with, that you NEVER start a relationship with someone you met at work. You can give some customers your number to establish a clientele but they need to understand its strictly business. I tell them I DO have a bf and that I don’t take my work home with me. Simple as that.

    Good luck to you and all!!!

    Trin <3

  10. jj on October 25th, 2010 10:20 am

    dear trinity
    that is such good advice, i am going to try it and see what happens
    I will let you know and fingers crossed he is ok with it
    you are so cool Trin<3

    The audition blog is up!!! As well as the other few blogs I’ve written for Mia so far ( which like an idiot I just found lol) so take a gander and see if you have any more questions for me :) My first private dance blog is underway, stay tuned!

    Trin<3

  17. mia how to become a stripper on November 2nd, 2010 1:10 pm

    Hey Trinity

    You are no idiot
    I love what you are doing! You are really adding value, so thank you, I know you are busy, but still doing a fantastic job, which the girls are appreciating!
    :)
    Mia xx

  18. Trinity on November 3rd, 2010 4:08 pm

    Awww you girls are the best!!! And I’m having a blast with this!!

    Natalie,

    Eat several small meals through the day and exercise 3-5 times a week. Yoga, pilates and/or strength training are all workout options that seem to benefit the girls I work with and myself as well.

    Also, bananas, yogurt, glucosamin and clacium supplements may also be a good idea :)

    Trin <3

    Hey Trinity

  20. Leann Massard on November 13th, 2010 8:07 am

    Great blog! I like how everything is well written. I will be back to check for new posts. Thanks!!

  21. Trinity on November 15th, 2010 4:51 pm

    Erin,

    Mia and I will blog a dancing blog asap!! Its not difficult though and I’ve had a customer get up and walk away, grumbling about the worst money he ever spent, so if he laughs just shrug it off; there are plenty of men willing to take his place :)

    Leann,

    Thanks!!!

  24. Lexi on January 11th, 2011 9:49 am

    Hey Trinity,
    Love all the advice so far. Well my two friends and I decided we wanted to earn some money because I have school bills to pay and dont have much time with concentrating on school. We’ve been reading alot of good information and tips, but I was wondering what your advice is as far as the three of us going in to audition all at once? And how does the auditioning process work after the fact of calling for the best time to audition and getting to the place? Do you go to the normal entrance and tell the bouncer that you are there to audition to avoid paying the cover charge? Any other specific details on what to expect when we audition? Do you think it would be bad to go in together? Is it possible to start working that night of auditioning? We plan to audition in less than 2 weeks and been preparing as much as we could so far. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences and advice with us!

  25. admin on January 11th, 2011 11:55 am

    Hi Lexi

    This is Mia, and I would love to answer your questions

    You can go in together but before you do I would suggest you call the club you want to work at and find out what thier audition process is.

    If they have an amatuer night or if they hold auditions. You will know then what to expect from them.

    Whether you can work or not, depends on the club. You may have to get a licence first.

    Good luck. Come back and tell us how it went

    Mia xx

  26. Trinity on January 27th, 2011 6:16 am

    Lexi,

    Good luck! Mia covered all the basics and it never hurts to have friends. Try to work your schedule so you don’t get overwhelmed with schoolwork and trying to rest!!!

    Trinity how did you learn how to dance is my main question. I think if you can dance you;ll have more confidence and wont be as nervous but i’m kind of nervous about letting my sexuality show.

  32. Sophie on June 29th, 2011 3:32 am

    Hi Mia
    I’ve tried stripping one night but only for 3 hrs. I was so scared and nervous cos I didn’t really know what to do. Now the problem is I can not stop thinking about stripping, it’s in my head 24/7. I am thinking about going back but I am very shy and nervous to look at customers. Do you have any tips that I can learn?
    One more question, do you think it’s bad for me to strip in the same state I live in?
    Thanks Mia.. Hope to hear from you soon

  33. Kim on July 26th, 2011 12:19 am

    Hey Trinity,

    I’ve been thinking about becoming a stripper and how much it would be easier to bring home a 2 weeks’s paycheck just in one night. But I’m scared… I found a website that is hiring strippers for $100 an hour but it’s for bachelor parties or just private parties… And i got hired and the manager told me i can start whenever i want. Is this a good idea or bad idea ? I would’ve rather work in a club but the money sounds good.

    luv kim :)

  34. Hanabee on August 4th, 2011 3:43 am

    hi trinity! i liked this! im glad you wrote it! would you talk to us some more? iv got so many questions, i have a pleasent face, im thin, but i have small boobs, strippers have to have big boobs dont they? i have more questons…

  35. samantha reyed on August 22nd, 2011 2:17 pm

    Hi trin!,
    Let me tell you my situation. I’m 18 and I love dancing and its so hrs getting a job right now. I am in college and I wanna strip because the money is needed. I’m wondering if I have to buy my own stripping clothes. And if I should actually tell my boyfriend and friends. I’m planning on ding it late at night.somewhere.where nobody will notice me. What’s your opinion?

  36. Lala on September 9th, 2011 8:09 am

    Trinity,
    I’ve been going back to your blog whenever i think about stripping trying to get advice. I’m going through a divorce and have a 2 yr old to worry about. Going to school full time and trying to get a job on the side is so hard. I can’t even get hired at wal-mart. i feel that like most girls stripping is a last resort because it’s taboo to their families. i think that this is something i could do because i’m very comfortable with myself and i know that my son having a full belly is the most important thing.
    thank you for all your great advice. I’m really looking forward to being brave and auditioning soon

  37. Rosario on November 8th, 2011 8:03 am

    This is a very good blog. I am now 21 and I worry that I am getting too old. An issue is my body. I’m 5′7 and 1/2 and need to work out to lose some extra padding. I’m not fat, but I am not “dancer ready.” I am a D cup, but my body is just not ready. I am going to college and I work now but I sometimes wonder. I work out regularly and eat pretty good so I suppose my body is in the “process.” Thanks for the information over the web.

  38. Allison on November 9th, 2011 9:08 pm

    Hey Trinity,
    My audition is tonight and I’m really nervous!! I hope I don’t make a fool of myself and get the job! I know I could do well, but I don’t have a lot of experience. Thanks for the advice! I’m definitely going to use it!

  39. Jill on November 18th, 2011 10:38 pm

    Hi Trinity,
    I started considering be a stripper after my sister told me that I would make good money. I’m starting to think seriously about this decision..but Im still in high school. ill be graduating this may, and ill be 18 in two weeks.. should i wait to graduate or should i start right away?
    Thanks

    I have so many questions to ask

  41. Shaylene on April 25th, 2012 6:45 am

    Hi!!
    I actually did Google– How to become a stripper as well lol. and came across this blog which i liked!
    I do have a couple questions myself.
    I am normally self conscious of how I dance regularly in a bar anyhow, however, I am confident about my body. I just am not as confident about my ‘dance’ moves and how to move on the stage. I dont mind being topless and in a thong, not a big deal to me really. Only thing holding me back is my ability to dance? Move sexily? without being self conscious of what other people think. If i could just let that go…. i would be great! lol
    The club I want to go to – the girls there, in my opinion, are not that cute. And do not have that great of bodies. I believe that I do, not in a conceded way… but I think it would be a great place for me to make good tips possibly.
    So, that does boost my confidence a little.
    Just, any advice would help!
    Shay

    i want to be come a stripper but i afraid because i’m extra hairy( stomach, underarms back, bikini line) (i tried wax and Nair but i always break out from ) so i have to shave more then once a week and it leaves dark marks will that be a problem or should i just try out anyway i don’t have and skills in that job but at every party or club i go to i always end up stripping and making $$ just for fun.. how can i get over my fear of getting on stage for the first time and not messing up and getting the job..

  43. Cookies on September 5th, 2015 10:38 pm

    Hi .. I’ve been thinking of becoming a stripper because of the money. I’ve been struggling for over 7 years to find a better job.

    I have a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design, but each and every time I apply, I get rejected, although they are impressed with my portfolio and things like that. It’s just that they’re not impressed with the way I talk. I don’t sound “corporate” or “sophisticated” enough.

    Now I applied for different jobs out there like administrative assistant because I have over 12 years experience in office management and data entry, but again, no success. I will always get the response, “We’ll call you back…..”

    I’ve been working as a customer service rep for over 10 years now. Truthfully, it’s been depressing and emotionally draining because each and every 8 mins of the day, we have to deal with rude and abusive customers. Of course, we have to maintain our cool and professionalism despite all that. And the company where I work as a customer service rep is going down the hill. They’re just cutting all the great benefits.

    I am 34 years old now, still living with my mom. So is it still allright for me to apply as a stripper? As far as my physique goes, I’m 5 ft tall — curvaceous but with a size A boobs. I know how to basic pole dance and belly dance.
