Sassy by name, Sassy by nature, I write to explode the myths which surround the lapdancing profession - standing up for the clubs, the girls and the customers. Its not always drinking champagne and playing with my tits - it can be hassle, hustling and hangovers. At heart I'm just a regular twenty-something posh cockney living in London who likes taking her clothes off...
Summer is a season with long days and hot nights but for lapdancers it can often be a hard time with plenty of effort for little financial reward. Empty seats and the constant rejection can be very draining and even make going into work feel like a waste of time. Clubs in big cities suffer as the usual business clientele stay away, whilst walk-by customers choose to drink in sunny pubs with a beer garden rather than big underground clubs. Across the world holiday hot-spots have seen a slump in the number of tourists and the amount spent per head.
Luckily, there are a number of ways that a lapdancer can combat the summer slump and earn good money whilst still having fun.
Simply by changing your attitude towards the shifts you work and the image you project a dancer can maximise her summer earnings. Weekends will be busier and full of tourists so wearing a summer themed outfit – Hawaiian hottie or Baywatch babe – can showcase a fun attitude and get a girl dances. Don’t stagnate – stay positive and become the life of the party to encourage customers to spend – throw a few saucy jokes in and make the men laugh. Strippers can go on tour and work in different clubs – I will be posting ideas on how to get work in busy seaside resorts in the UK and abroad. There are even stripclubs in Ibiza!
Over the next week Sassy Lapdancer will be posting a daily article on how to strip for summer – the places to go, auditioning tips, keeping focused, and staying positive so that you can make bank! As an exotic dancer who has been lucky enough to have travelled all over the world I will be including articles on where to dance in the UK as well as lapdancing abroad in Europe, plus information on stripping in the USA. They will be as informative as possible so that dancers can just pack their heels and hit the road!
Feel free to post comments – I’m curious to hear about your experiences too! Does the working environment feel stressful over summer or did you get lucky? Does your club do promotions with a holiday theme or are they useless in attracting more than the regular clientele?
