View Full Version : Customer Myths v. Facts

11-25-2011, 01:36 PM
There's a great thread over in the pink section on stripper myths v. facts, so I thought I'd start one about SC customers on the blue side. Feel free to add more myths v. facts below, or chime in about whatever.

Myth: All customers are looking for sex.

Fact: Customers are looking for different things. This ranges from married customers who just want to pretend they're young again and look at naked women for an hour before picking up the kid from soccer practice, to customers looking for full blown sex without resorting to escorts. And of course you have everything in between. Your average customer is probably coming to the club looking for high quality lap dances from hot women. He is probably open to the idea of extras or p4p OTC, but not necessarily. There are a lot of reasons why men might not want to go through with this, i.e., prostitution is still illegal, if caught his career or family could be jeopardized, etc.

Myth: All customers think that they can successfully pick up a stripper.

Fact: Most customers don't think this is true. There are some who will try to pick up a stripper, but that's usually in the heat of the moment, when they're thinking with their other "head," or just because they figure they should give it the old college try while they're ITC. Most don't think they'll be successful and are just playing the lottery, so to speak, when they ask a stripper out. They think this might be the one time in a million when they win. But there are the ones who give most guys a bad name, and those are the dumbasses who foolishly believe that a stripper's hustle is real. They were probably jocks in high school who dated the hottest cheerleaders, and are now trying to re-live those days at age 40. They will immediately assume that the stripper who asks them to dance "likes" them, and will get upset when they later find out that it's "all about the money." These guys are a pain in the ass, and we regular customers think they're idiots just as much as the girls do.

Myth: Customers who don't tip or don't buy drinks are going to be cheapos who won't buy LDs.

Fact: A lot of the customers who don't tip or buy frills are looking to conserve their money for the LDs. Most customers come in with a certain amount of cash to spend and they know that going over their limit will either force them to go to the ATM and pay ridiculous fees, or will result in them being caught by the wife or whatever. So a guy who knows that he can get away with spending 200 dollars ITC on any given night is often going to forego the drinks and tips in order to maximize the dances. Similarly, a lot of guys who tip a lot and buy the strippers drinks are doing so because they have no intention of buying dances and they're throwing a few dollars around in order to keep the girls interested and string them along for the attention and the thrill.

Myth: The hottest girls are going to get all the guys' money. Period.

Fact: Guys have a wide range of what they're looking for in women. Most of the girls ITC are going to be attractive. With the exception of hole in the wall clubs, being a stripper usually requires at least some level of hotness on the part of the dancers. So it really comes down to the particularities of any given customer. Some customers might be boob men. Some might be leg men. Some might like the hot librarian look. Some might like the dominatrix look. And a lot of it too is in the vibe between the dancer and the customer in the pre-dance phase as the girl is sitting with the customer. A cute girl who seems to share the guy's sense of humor is probably going to sell a dance to the guy easier than a perfect 10 who is having an off night and acting aloof or irritable as a consequence. So it's not all about cup size or relative hotness.

Myth: If a guy rejects a stripper, it's because she's not hot

Fact: Guys turn down girls for dances for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes it might be because they just don't find that girl attractive. But often it's for reasons totally unrelated to that. Maybe they're waiting for a favorite. Or for another dancer who is more of their type (for example, they prefer girls with tattoos, etc). Maybe they just got done buying 3 LDs from another girl and now just want to relax. One of the reasons that I often turn down even the hottest dancers is that they approach me the minute I walk into the club and begin looking for a place to sit down. Seems to be a common theme that most guys hate that, because they want to be able to sit down, get comfortable, and get the lay of the land before making decisions about dances. That same girl might have come by five minutes later and gotten the guy's money for the night.

I detest lectures. I have forgotten more if you get my drift.

I like this idea for a thread.
I don't know if this is the best place for it, though. Shop Talk is more of a "by blues, for blues" (and Lopaw) kind of a place and it seems like the intention is to clear up misconceptions about customer perspectives for dancers.

That's a good point, especially since the blues-plus-Lopaw already know this stuff, given that they're on the customer side of the equation. Didn't realize that this was a largely blues only section. If a mod wants to move this thread to a more appropriate section I am all for that.

So it's not a fact that customers are only worth the sum of the money they hand over to you... Hmm ok I guess it's possible, but I'm still going to think of them that way. ;)

None of these things are myths to me or any stripper with a shred of clue or experience.

Once again I agree with KS. Any experienced dancer knows the facts versus myths. We learn that many times what you look like isn't the only reason you sell dances. First off guys like different things lookwise and they like different things non look wise. I've made money because I had long hair, because I have large lips (on my face get your mind out of the gutter, lol)and most importantly based on my conversation skills.

I dont think myth is the right word. I would use misconception.
