12 Brutally Honest Answers From A Female Stripper's Reddit AMA

"I probably net £45,000 annually. Of course my tax statement says otherwise."

To offer some insight into what it's like to take your clothes off for a living, Reddit user milfsauce agreed to answer any question about her job as a stripper in a recent AMA. She explained she had four years of experience and felt like she had a "lot to share". She sure did...

1. Is this what you expected you'd be in high school? (No judgement intended with this question.)

The answer is no, I don't think many people think critically about their future in high school. But I'm working on my second college degree, so...

2. Creepiest customer?

75% of them creep me out, so hard to say. It'd be quicker to name normal ones.

3. What's your definition of a 'normal' customer?

[By] 'normal' I mean the type of man who is probably socially well-adjusted and capable of forming healthy relationships. The kind of guy who pops into a club now and then to let loose, but sees it more as entertainment/novelty, and is generally respectful and understands the dynamics.

The 75% I described above are the type of people who are in clubs every week, or go to fulfil a need out of desperation, even if it's just human connection. For some, it's the need to exert power or be recognised, which they are not getting from everyday women in their lives. I have nothing against these people, but they take a lot of energy. 'Normal' guys are nice to chat with, don't have any delusions that you want to go home with them, compensate you fairly for your time, and aren't creepy.

4. Have you given guys oral or had sex with them for extra money?

No, but prostitution is hugely prevalent within the dance industry. It's unfortunate and annoying. It makes it harder for girls like me to get through a night without disrespect. I'm all about legalising prostitution so the men and women who need that can get the hell out of the club. I have nothing against it, just sick of guys assuming it's part of the package because 'the other girl' does it.

5. What do parents say about your job?

My dad knows and he knows I am smart and safe. All he ever says is 'be safe'. Almost everyone in my life knows. No one cares.

6. How much do you make?

I just left work. I made about $500 (£375) tonight. Last week I made about $650 (£485) last Saturday night. Weekdays less. Depends on the area, the season, the type of club, etc. When I worked in a slightly smaller club I could usually depend on about $200-$350 (£150-£260) per night. I have other things going on during the weekdays, but if you know what you're doing and work full time, you could probably pull six figures a year. When I was working four days a week, I probably net 60k (£45,000) annually. Of course my tax statement said otherwise.

7. What's the most you've ever made in a week?

Hard to say. Probably $2k (£1,500) or so when I had the time and motivation. I wanted to take my son on [holiday] and worked like crazy to make it happen in the time frame I had. Not only did I make my goal, we stayed on vacay four extra days. It was pretty awesome. I recall being fairly broke when I returned, but c'est la vie.

8. Why did you choose to be a stripper? What led you to the occupation?

I choose to do this because the schedule is flexible and I dump out a bag of money each night I work. I have an issue with authority and underemployment. I have a degree, I've done other things, I've currently got other things in the making. But dancing lets me make quick cash so I can get back to those things, and my family. I don't have Daddy issues. I just wanted to make money. I'm a natural flirt, tease, and a good actress. I was a theatre geek in school and I did some modelling. It just made sense to maximise my ROI while I'm on the younger curve of life. But there's a deadline. The show can't go on forever. I'm working on my next step, but if I'm still doing this in three years, it means something has gone very wrong in my life plan.

9. Have any of your customers stalked you?

I haven't so much had people 'stalk' me per se, but I've had people find out everything they can about me and use it to manipulate me or make things awkward. In every case, it was my fault, for giving out my number occasionally or something like that.

10. Do you get on with your colleagues?

The club is similar to a jail microcosm. You have your cliques and solo flyers. I'm a solo flyer. I definitely keep my head down. I have no interest in making friends with most of my coworkers. Few of them are decent people, and the ones that are keeping to themselves like I do. On two or three occasions I have made 'friends' with a coworker. One of them, we had a good thing 'til she moved. The next went on a meth binge and made up paranoid violent stories about me to other coworkers (which was awesome because they were all afraid of me for a while). The last I had to rescue from her boyfriend beating the shit out of her and helped put her on a plane to go live with a sugar daddy. Long and short, it's best to keep your head down in this industry. People try to start fights over nothing and I don't have time for it.

11. Are you in a relationship? If you are, how does your boyfriend/girlfriend feel about this?

I'm just now pulling up to my man's house to sneak into bed with him after long night. Been together the better part of 2 years. He handles it well but is admittedly jealous. I reassure him a lot. And he reassures me a lot that he's not fucking all the girls at work who are on his dick. So I guess it evens out.

12. Have you ever had a guy suck your tit when you were straddling him?

Yes all the time. I'm usually ok with it but I have nipple rings and most guys are too rough. I've had to slap a few for sucking too hard or biting. Typically, if you give an inch, they take a mile. My biggest thing is being gentle. I had to punch someone in the face last night for biting me. It was a knee-jerk reaction. Men get too excited and have trouble exercising restraint.
