1. Buying the girl a drink is usually a waste of time. She’s not going to get drunk and find you sexy through beer goggles. Girls have code words. If a guy offers to buy her a drink and she orders a vodka & lemonade, it means she wants water and would rather have the money from the drink given to them. At $9 each drink, the girls made a nice little sum on the side. We have envelopes for all of the girls where the money would go in to. The guy thought he was buying her a drink at $9 and that’s what he paid, only he was paying it directly to her via us at the bar and she was having a lemonade or a water.
2. Make sure you clarify you want one dance. This way they will ask if you actually want another or just dance until Visa gets a boner
3. Don’t sit at front of the stage if you aren’t tipping.
Nothing is more frustrating for the dancers than the guy standing at the bar/sitting at a table who is more than happy to watch but does not want to spend money. Even if you are not getting dances – if you are spending time at the club watching, every once in a while throw a little money on the stage to show your appreciation. At the same turn – if you spend time talking to a dancer – it’s not uncommon to tip her for her time. It can be by buying her a drink or with a little cash. It lets her know that although you are not getting a dance you appreciated the time and company she spent with her.
4. DO NOT WEAR SWEATPANTS! Dancers can feel every inch of your junk when you wear sweat pants/basketball shorts and they don’t want to feel like they’re having sex with you.
We know almost every “trick” that men try to pull. The biggest one if that many guys show up in fabric that’s similar to basketball shorts. You might attract the more ratchet-girls who know you’re there for one thing. We generally regard these guys as sleezebags who are trying to bust a nut in their pants for the lowest amount of money possible. I used to think only nasty older slobs engaged in that but noticed younger dudes seem to be passing it on like it’s slick advice.
5. Keep your goddamn hands to yourself until someone gives you plain and clear permission to touch them.
Lap dances do not = your time to try out all the things you’ve seen in Porn movies. Unless given express permission by the dancer – Do not lick, bite, kiss, slap, pinch, grab, manhandle, pull hair, twist nipples, try to finger – either in the pink or the stink, push, pull thongs off, pull thongs to the side to look at her pu$$y while on stage, try to put money inside her crotch, put your face in her crotch. Touching and behavior with customers is determined on a case by case basis by the dancer and can vary by customer and that dancers comfortability with a particular customer. Telling a dancer “well so and so let’s me.” Or “in Canada/Brazil/New York we’re allowed to…” does not matter. At the end of the day – you are paying for a dance – not the right to assault, humiliate or make someone feel uncomfortable. Don’t do it.
6. I don’t know why men do this but please don’t lick me, I’m just trying to do my job and my job does not entail being licked. I’m also gross and sweaty and am not prepared to have my butt cheek, face cheek, my bellybutton, ect licked. Normally I love my job, it can be a lot of fun but please please just treat me like a human being.
7. Most clubs offer free admission and a free limo/party bus ride to their place if you call them directly. If you take a cab/Uber/hotel limo or outside transportation you will always pay cover. All strip clubs in town give outside transportation a kickback for bringing customers to the club so they can’t waive your cover because they’re already paying the cabs/etc for bringing you.
8. All strippers pay a house fee to work at the club. It ranges from ($50-150 a night depending on when they arrive.) if they don’t make that money on shift they are still responsible for paying that money to the club.
9. Although it may seem funny – don’t steal or hide a dancers clothes, shoes, purse, phone. Don’t fold up your money into airplanes or darts and throw it at the entertainer on stage, don’t take photos or videos – even of yourself. It makes everyone feel uncomfortable and will get you kicked out.
10. Anyone who goes on about strippers being crazy bitches is not a very worldly person. Of course there are unhinged addicts among us who are trying to sadly squeeze every last bit of mileage out of their looks in an effort to avoid real work. Most strippers I know are pretty normal people who you wouldn’t really suspect to be a dancer if you saw them in public. Some of us have a shitload of school with only a narrow timeslot to work, some of us have medical conditions that make it really hard to find jobs that allow a flexible schedule in case we feel ill. A good amount are working both this job and a regular dayjob to keep their families afloat. So try not walk in with that frat-boy mentality that all strippers are coked-out airheads with daddy issues.
11. There is no sex in the VIP room. Most people coming to Vegas have the party mindset and are looking to get laid – but coming to the strip club and propositioning every dancer to ‘come back to your hotel room for $300’ is not only illegal – it’s almost insulting. These dancers pay Incredible house fees to work every night. $300 is not even close enough to make it worth their while to chance leaving the club, getting arrested for prostitution, getting fired from the club, losing their ability to work at any other club or resort property in Nevada, not to mention the safety risk of meeting a stranger at a hotel room who may or may not have a group of his buddies ready to rape and kill her. PS prostitution is illegal in Clark County where Las Vegas is.
12. Not all dancers are criminals and thieves. In Nevada every strip club and resort employee has to get a Sheriffs Card. Which means they have to get a federal background check and if they are not a citizen, have any felonies or a criminal record they cannot work at our club.
13. Ladies – although it may seem fun and sexy do not give your man a lap dance at the club. You are there to enjoy the entertainers – not be part of the show. It’s not uncommon for security to stop an intoxicated female from dancing and she says ‘but I’m hotter and dance better than all the girls here’ That May be the case but it’s rude. You don’t go to a restaurant, go into the kitchen and start cooking your own food. It’s the same thing.
14. You’re supposed to have the mentality that we are a *fantasy*. That under normal conditions, you probably wouldn’t have a buxom beauty taking her top off while sitting in your lap. Just enjoy the fact that a pretty girl is letting you place your hands on her. An ideal customer would keep things at this level and not expect anything further. If you go in expecting to get off then you have the wrong idea or you need an unregulated backwoods club that doubles as a brothel in order to satisfy this.
