If becoming an exotic dancer has ever crossed your mind, you've probably asked yourself 'how much money can I make?' Because this and a lot of other questions are running through your mind, I wrote "How To Be A Stripper: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know But Were Too Afraid To Ask" to help answer this and many other questions.
My first night dancing, I brought home a whopping $60. It was definitely discouraging because I thought I would bring home at least $300 or more. The thing I failed to understand about stripping is that making the 'big bucks' does not happen over night. There is a learning curve and it is important to understanding how to make money off dancing on stage and how to get customers to buy lap dances from you.
Because most dance sets are made up of two 3.5 minute long songs, the club will have approximately eight girls dancing per hour. Keep in mind that there is at least a 30 second interval between dancers, so there is a chance that only seven girls will go up on stage per hour/per stage.
What does this mean for you? Depending on how many stages there are in your club, how many girls are on the rotation schedule, and how many customers there are, you'll most likely make between $10 and $50 per stage show.
Once you learn the art of getting a customer to buy a lap dance from you, you will easily increase your earnings per night. Since you are only on stage for approximately 7 minutes per hour, you will want to make the most of the other 53 minutes.
Most lap dances are between $10 and $20 per dance, so the key to making a lot of money is to keep your customer buying dances from you once you have already got him in your chair. The best thing to do is make your lap dance the most seductive during the last 30 seconds. When you can hear the song starting to end, ask your customer if he wants you to continue. If you have done it right, he will want more!
Taking the money you make off stage dances and adding it to the money you can make by getting customers to buy lap dances from you, you can make between $80 and $100 an HOUR. Of course, this amount may vary... some nights you'll make more and some nights you will make less, but this is the average you should expect.
