Always place your safety first. If you follow the safety tips on this site you have nothing to worry about. Remember we have been working in this industry with no problems at all. The following are some saftery tips when learning how to become a stripper whilst in the club.

stripper-saftery-2Stripper Safety Tip 1 – Watch your alcohol
Make sure you do not drink so much that you are not on the ball. I have seen countless girls lose their money, tell c ustomer things they shouldn’t of and behave in a way that gets them fired, all cause they had drunk too much

Stripper Safety Tip 2 – Keep it business
Make sure you do not give your real information to the customers, girls who work in the club, and anyone else who works in the club. You don’t know these people and cannot trust them. Most people are nice, but you will not know who they are, especially if you have just started. So just be aware….some people have their own agenda Make sure you have a set of fake information ready, a persona that you have made up and feel comfortable with so that when a customer asks you anything personal the fake details will roll off your tongue

Stripper Safety Tip 3 – Keep Alert
Make sure you NEVER leave your drink unattended, even for a split second….it only takes seconds to slip something into it. If you have lost track of where the drink has been, just get a new one…just say to the customer…”I really feel like a new flavour, shall we both have xxxxxx?”stripper-saftey1

Stripper Safety Tip 4 – Stay Within Your Comfort Limits
Don’t let customers do anything to you that will make you feel uncomfortable even if you are desperate for money. It may make you more money in that instant, but Trust me in the long run, it will decrease your self image and your morale and will ultimately make you feel bad about working there and will lead to less money later…..just remember…tomorrow is another night and there will always be another customer.

Stripper Safety Tip 5 – Keep In Control
Don’t let customers break the rules in the clubs e.g. take drugs etc. If they get caught you will be held responsible even if you haven’t done anything ……because you should know better its your responsibility to protect the clubs permit.

Stripper Safety Tip 6 – Protect Your Valuables
Make sure you keep hold of your money and valuables at all times. Sometimes even lockers are not very safe. Do not just leave things even or a minute, and try not to bring anything into wok that has your real details, just in case somebody does get hold of them

Stripper Safety Tip 7 - Keep Your Feet On The Ground
Don’t get caught up with “too good to be true” offers. You know the ones where they will marry you and take you away to live on their private island.  Usually it is just their drink and ego talking, but there are people who will try and lure you into all sorts of seedy situations, so be careful.

Stripper Safety Tip 8 – Under Promise & Over Deliver
No matter how desperate you are for money, don’t make promises that you will see the customer outside and be sexual with him. If he asks you, be elusive by saying, you are embarrassing me…stop, with a flatter of your eyelashes. And change the topic. If you do promise him anything, he might tell your management, be a cop or actually hound you until you pay up…so be careful

    During these tough economic times criminals are looking for any opportuties to make a quick buck and strippers are an easy target. It is important that you protect yourself. Check out some wonderful non-lethal smart products that are available to defend yourself and remove yourself from a dangerous situation. My favorites are the Cell phone stun guns, Pepper spray ring, lipstick pepper spray and the personal alarms. They are very affordable. your safety is important!

    hey this is a very interesting article!

    I’ve got a question: if you have to fill out let’s say a W-9 or an employment application at a club (do they even do W-9s?) wouldn’t that be giving your information to people who work at a club? How can you be safe and protect your privacy? I’ve been looking at several options lately since the market downsized, trying to decide if I should pursue being a pro-domme or try stripping. Thanks! Really helpful blog. You should do an entry on finances (how to save)!

  4. mia on December 17th, 2009 3:45 pm

    Hi Veronica,
    Most clubs will have normal job application processes, but you will be applyig as a self employed person. Also as they are run like a normal business you can be sure that they have to protect your information. So as long as you apply to a good, well run club, (like in a town or city, not some back alley place) you will find that your information will be safe. I would definately try stripping as you can really do well even in thsi economy

    Good idea with the finances entry I will do that soon, maybe for the New year!

    As a retired, successful stripper in the midwest, it is refreshing to hear someone else that is still in the industry give the same advice I’ve given countless girls over the 10 and more years I worked in the clubs.

    In the clubs, you are an independent contractor, which means you “rent” the stage. That is your nightly tipout to the house. You are responsible for your own insurance (which is an incredibly good idea!), savings (another great idea – put 1/4 of what you make NO MATTER WHAT into a savings account), and your own actions. Research the club you’re applying at, and even attend it as a customer before you serve yourself up on their menu. It’s your reputation that’s on the line, and you have to protect that at all costs.

    As far as protection goes, learn basic self defense. Be a lady when attending customers! Nobody wants to hear about your problems at home. You’re there for their entertainment, so put your best foot forward at all times, no matter what. Ready yourself for unsavory characters and let them know their actions are unacceptable to you. Too often I have seen girls allow the customer to get away with too much because “the customer is always right” or “he paid me well, and it really isn’t that bad”. Whatever! Actions like that bring the whole industry down into the gutter.

    I could go on for days about life in the clubs, so I will leave it at that. Thanks, Mia, for presenting a cleaner side to the clubs, the girls, and giving sound, helpful advice! I give lessons since I’ve retired and returned to school. I will definately be sending my students to read your articles!

    Thanks for responding to my earlier question — what would be a good way to deflect a bad customer? Or how do you know when a customer has gone too far, aside from your own personal discomfort?


  8. Veronica on February 7th, 2010 7:48 pm

    Here’s another question: how are relations between fellow strippers at a stripclub?


  9. mia on February 16th, 2010 2:12 pm

    Hi Veronica

    A good way to deflect a bad customer is first with humour and gentle hand movements

    And if that doesn’t work, jsutsay that is not allowed here.
    And you will know when they have overstepped the boundaries either when they are breaking the club rules or your personal boundaries and you are feeling uncomfortable. Whichever one comes first

    Do not let that happen
    Good luck
    Mia xx

  10. mia on February 16th, 2010 2:14 pm

    Hi Veronica
    Relations between fellow strippers can be one of many
    1) friends
    2) friendly
    3) competitive
    4) Bitcy
    5) Aggresive
    6) igoring each other

    or a mixture of all the above

    It depends on the girls and where you work

    Good luck

    I have thought many times about becoming a dancer but I’m nervous that maybe I’m not the right body type (some stretch marks and a little extra in the middle). How do I figure out if I would be right for this?

  12. mia robbins on April 7th, 2010 1:08 pm

    Hi Alyss,

    Most girls feel like this Alyss, make sure you get your middle toned and just audition, by phoning a club and asking them when it is. You will know what to expect then as they will tell you when you ask.

    Strechmarks are not to worry about as it is dark and you can cover with make up
    good luck

  13. sexy on May 9th, 2010 4:51 pm

    Hi =)
    What are the auditions like? what do you do?
    and infront of who?

  14. sexy on May 9th, 2010 4:52 pm

    and does the club provide the costumes?

  15. mia on May 10th, 2010 10:29 am

    Hi Sexy,

    Auditions in most clubs are dancing and stripping on a stage to music. You do not have to know how to poledance for most clubs, but you can just dance around it and learn some basic moves in poledancing classes or by watching a youtube video.

    Usually this audition will happen in front of management or teh House mum who looks after the girls.

    The club does not provide the costumes. You can have a look at some dresses you can wear by checking out discount stripper which you can see at the top.
    Good Luck

    Thanks for the website. It’s very helpful. I danced before in Colorado but recently moved to NYC and am wondering if you know which clubs are decent. Mostly, I’m just looking for a club that treats its dancers well. I was hoping you might know which NYC clubs have good (or bad) reputations. Thanks!


  17. mia on July 7th, 2010 3:14 pm

    Hi Felicia

    I have a friend who works at Scores and says that you have to work hard but can earn great if you know what youa re doing

    Good luck

  20. Cutie on October 16th, 2010 6:58 pm

    When i apply for a job at the club, do i have to give them my ssn, i’m a FT student and don’t want anybody to find out and can i just work Fr and Sat nights?
    Thank you, great website!

  21. mia- how to become a stripper on October 19th, 2010 7:36 am

    Hi Cutie

    In most good clubs they will ask you for an SSN, The reason is they have to claim the tax and run a legal business.

    I do know that some clubs will do it without, but you will have to phone and ask the, directly

    Anyway who is likely to find out?

    I am a driver and this are some tips i give to new girls. Really have to think before You drink. It easy for people to take advantage of you if you are under the influence, some times the danger is not from a customer, but dancers, drivers, buncers, management, Your tips are easily taken when drunk. I know sometimes a drink or two is needed to deal with this job, but keep it at that. You will be happy if you do.

  23. Julie on July 4th, 2011 8:28 am

    Hi Mia,

    Great article. If you’re still reading these questions, I have a couple.

    1) Where do dancers store their money when they’re on stage so it doesn’t get stolen? I’ve heard it’s good to keep it on you at all times, but the dancers I’ve seen definitely weren’t hanging onto it up there.
    2) How much should you tip out the DJs and bartenders? Is it a percentage of how much you made that night?


  24. Nieka on September 23rd, 2011 4:58 pm

    Thank so much for this site,Mia & Hunny Creek you guys are so great for all the advise you guys put up here. I always wanted to dance but Ive always been a little scared, now that in more mature i know the kind of stripper i want to be. Sexy & professional.
    do you have any tips for makeup? do you have any youtube videos for floor work moves I can get the link to ?

  25. kittycatgurl on January 29th, 2012 6:15 pm

    Hi Mia I <3 your blog. Do you know any good places to work in the Seattle or Lynnwood,WA area? I am looking to get into this buisness,however I want to find a good strip club.

  26. Allie on September 14th, 2012 3:24 pm

    Well I live in Chicago , only 18 and economy is tough and have been considering stripping ?
    What’s the minimum age? And I’m nt from the united states so I don’t have a ssn is there any strip clubs in Chicago that anyone knows off that are decent and don’t ask for it?

  27. kat on September 20th, 2012 12:31 am

    hi, i’m auditioning tonight at a club- after reading all these tips i’m really sure that i’ll get it. i’ve done shows for friends and their friends too, so i’m used to the crowd, i’m just wondering one little thing- if somehow i do get hired, what should a stripping girl do if shes on her period. i mean come on aside from wearing white and tucking in the string is there anything else she could do? I’m sure everyone wonders this at some point…just sayin

  28. Joshua on January 6th, 2013 10:11 pm

    Great tips. I have been in the self defense industry since 1996. A lot of my customers are here in Denver and always asking me advice when it comes to safety on the streets, at the mall, in the clubs and everyday life.

    Thanks again for your time and great article.

  29. Kimberly on January 27th, 2014 9:23 pm

    Hi Mia, I have been debating on becoming a stripper for about 3 months now. I have absolutely no experience, and I’ve only taken 1 pole class. What clubs in Miami do you think I can research for a job?
