Keeping His Hands Off Your Body

The thing that I hear strippers complain most about and also probably is the most emotionally draining part of the job is that guys insist on touching, grabbing, pinching, licking, biting, and blowing on you. Not only does it feel like a complete violation of your bits, it’s also really ridiculous for a guy to expect to touch you like that for a measly $20. Once upon a time, strippers could just dominate guys out of doing that, and sometimes the dominatrix act even made them more money–but this isn’t the nineties. These days there are LOTS of entertainers and way fewer fetishists in the clubs. There are tons of lawsuits (don’t believe me, google it), and the popular image of women has shifted back to “fun girl” from “fierce girl.” Beating a guy off of you and yelling at him is going to hurt your money, especially if the dances at your club are on the floor where other guys could witness it. No matter WHO was in the wrong, you are going to look like the crazy one. According to most management, he isn’t insane for trying to touch you. You are hot, he is a dog. He can’t help it (eye roll eye roll eye roll)–so use your grace and charm and smile to keep your boundaries firm.
A young girl I used to dance with would jump up and say, “OMG, I just really didn’t expect you to touch me like that!” and guys would feel awful and apologize. They would see her as a “good girl” and many would pay her for her time after that.
I like to say, “Oh no baby, you can’t touch me like that out here, I’ll get in trouble. We have private rooms though, where we can get a little closer.” Next thing you know I am in a VIP room, and I honestly spend the majority of the time talking.
Does yelling at him to sit on his hands save you? Yeah, it does, for that song, but the likelihood of that guy stacking dances with you diminishes the second you cop an attitude. Plus, if he likes you enough to lick your nasty stage body, he probably likes you enough to spend money on you. Successful strippers know that keeping his desire alive is what makes him pay you and it’s what makes him upgrade. Yes, it sucks he's touching you, but you can make him stop by making him spend if he wants to keep doing it. Learn to control your anger, channel it into financial gain. If you think you are going to make thousands of dollars every night without being touched, I can tell you you will be gravely disappointed. It might happen sometimes, but it is unlikely to happen consistently unless you are in a very strict club where the rules are enforced by management and not by the dancers.
Biting his head off might make you feel better for the moment, but controlling your impulses is integral to boosting your sales. You might hate this guy right now, but if you handle things with finesse and grace, you just might end up turning your horny dog into the guy who pays your rent every month.
