Other than caffeine and nicotine, that is. This is for a freelance assignment I've got. I would especially love to hear from members who work vanilla 9-5 jobs. Not trying to feed the stereotype about drug-addicted strippers whatsoever.

Here's the link to take the survey-- and thanks!

Edit: Turned in the assignment, thanks all!

For 11 years, I worked stone cold sober. Over the last year, I've been using med mj. Helps with aches and pains, makes the dancing more fun,and, well, makes everything more fun lol. I'm suffering from burnout, so it helps.

No, never have. I smoke weed at home once in a blue moon for medical purposes. For longer engagements, I have a few sips of wine with my clients. When it comes to stripping, the bartenders discretely make my drinks non- alcoholic at my request :)

No, or elsewhere. I had a pretty sheltered life in a somewhat isolated community growing up. I never really had exposure to highly sweetened foods or caffeine, so I can’t even handle those, except in very careful moderation. The first time I drank a glass of Mountain Dew was probably pretty frustrating for my roommates, as I spent most of the night bouncing off the walls. Even if I wanted to try drugs, how well would I possibly handle them?
We did have one girl get caught doing cocaine at work. I think that’s the only time I’ve ever actually seen that stuff.

Dancing and straight jobs both -- coffee, red bull (occasionally in disturbing amounts), ibuprofen like my life depends on it. Nothing else.

My last barbacking job, I would have a drink or two after work sometimes. Didn't drink at the club while dancing. Being required by the club to drink while working is a deal breaker for me. Too much that can go wrong, IMO. Bartenders would discretely make me virgin drinks and I learnt all the tricks I could to delay/dump or otherwise minimise my alcohol intake while doing rooms.

I'm a Libertarian. What do you think?

In the past, I smoked pot occasionally. Like a a handful of times in a year. Doesn't go well with me, unfortunately. I love the smell but it makes me feel like shit after.

Other than that, a big fat fkn NO on anything else. Never had the urge and never will.

I'm not an angel, but my earnings usually go to hell if I'm high at work. The exception has been very long VIP rooms involving bottles and coke, but uppers make me anxious so I might be in the mood for a bump once a year or so. Earnings aside, I simply feel anxious anytime I'm less aware of my surroundings in a club.

When I was a baby stripper I partook in any mdma, coke, or pills that came my way, but I was a teenager and got that out of my system pretty quickly.

In my experience, it's easier to get away working high at restaurants. It's not like customers decide not to buy food because their server seems "off." If a stripper seems "off," though, it's usually a turn off to anyone who isn't fucked up themselves or predatory. Though the primary reason I stopped partying at work was growing up, I would say stripping probably cut that period of my life shorter, because it's more dangerous to be fucked up in a club.

The sweet spot for me when I dance is 2-3 drinks. I'm pretty boring.

Edit: Whoops, didn't notice you turned the assignment in. Would you mind updating with a quick summary of what you found?

I drink alcohol. dont like to do much else :p

When I danced back in the day I would do blow, drank, pills...

Quit all of the above for some time. Got back into clubs working as a cocktail server. Few percs here and there never hurt lmao for that job. I did not drink when I was serving drinks tho, and kept my nose clean.

I cam and have a majority of my adult life. I had some sober years behind me, and started experimenting last summer. Never said I was a saint lol. I will do blow/molly occasionally on cam lol. No alcohol. If I got into dancing again, it would be very easy for me to slip into raging alcoholic mode even though I am older and wiser. Id probably pop XANS or addies

I don't recognize that person anymore.

Caffeine + a vape pen/E-cig are my close friends. I wouldn't mind experimenting with pills like a Xanax but I would do that on break and I would only take half a pill. I'm very sensitive & I can be shy at times.
