View Full Version : Any Strip Club Pet Peeves

Every message board needs a good rant thread so I thought I'd start one.

I love strip clubs, but aren't there some things about them that drive you nuts?!
>:( :P >:( :( :P

Here's five things that I wish would change:

1. "VIP rooms" "champagne rooms" etc. GET RID OF THEM! Everyone knows that for the most part, they're a rip off, regardless of whether they're in Las Vegas or Topeka. And for different reasons, I know a lot of the Stripperweb gals hate them.

2. Incoherent music. Where do some of the DJ's find this shit?! I don't mind a little electronica and hip hop but my God, mix it up a little with some classic rock, 80's rock music, etc.

3. Stupid promotions. Or even OK promotions that are not professionally done. These could be bad features, oil wrestling, auctioning of undergarments that the dancers wore for all of three minutes (what am I gonna do with that bra or panties when I get home?).

4. Creating a "PaRtY!" atmosphere. If I wanted to party, I'd go to a dance club or an actual party! When I come to the club, I'm tired from a ong stressful week of work and I want to RELAX and enjoy being entertained by the girls. I do not want to act like Al Bundy and the No Ma'am guys at the Jiggly Room! Real strip club customers do not act like that!!

5. Anything that's not on the level. This could include watered down drinks, and dance specials that are well, not that special. Anyone ever had the notorious 2-for-1 dance that suddenly was no longer 2-for-1 once you were finished? Too late to complain then unless you want to be shown the door for not paying up. Seedy adult business or not, honesty STILL is the best policy.

Just was wondering what the rest of you could add to my list. Go with your gut. You too ladies!

1 drink minimums, why not just charge more at the door instead? Every time you move to a different part of the club the waitress thinks you just walked in and tries to sell you another drink!

Restroom attendants, costs me $1 to take a leak (often, due to buying too many drinks).

DJ's who talk too much, straight out of the 'Museum of Annoying Guys' (that was a bit on 'The Man Show' once). I don't care for most of the music either, but being a pretentious progressive rock musician I don't expect to.

Valets, I drive a $40k sports car, they should be paying me.

And of course just like everybody else, I wish the other customers would just go away :)

I kind of dig the VIP room though.

Music that sucks.

Dancers who ignore female customers. (Their loss - I spend my money on girls who acknowledge me. And being a stripper myself, when I go on a pleasure trip as a customer, I usually tip QUITE well).

Weak or overpriced drinks.

Bartenders asking me if I want to audition when I am there as a patron.

Male customers attempting to solicit dates or acts of prostitution from me when I am at a club as a patron.

The bouncers who refuse to do anything about said obnoxious males.

Uncomfortable seating.

Seating so comfortable I don't want to get up to go to the stage.

Slow or moronic cocktail waitresses.

Cocktail waitresses who "artificially inflate" drink prices to ensure a tip. (I almost always tip unless the service sucked.)

Juice bar strip joints with outrageously high covers to make up for the lack of alcohol sales.

Overpriced lap dances (If a place wants to charge $25 for a lap dance, when I can get the exact same thing with equal or prettier dancers at another club for $20, well.... you do the math....)

Places that charge for running a credit card tab or processing a credit card for the cost of drinks. (If I wanted to waste my time with finding one of my bank's ATMs, or if I wanted to waste my money by paying the fee to use the ATM within the club, I would have already done so. The cash I have on hand is what I brought to spend on the LADIES, not the bar...)

Dancers and cocktail waitresses who try nagging me into drinking more, buying drinks for others, buying lap dances, or going to the stage. (It is one thing to ask - asking does not hurt. It is another to nag, and it will piss me off and cause me to leave.)

DANCERS WHO WHINE! (It is one thing to tell me you are having a bad/slow/off night; being a fellow dancer, I understand these things and do not personally mind. I may even ask what's wrong. But whining about it, asking me to solve it for you by padding your garter, or anything beyond the straight and simple will cause me to first lodge a complaint with whoever is in charge, and then leave.)

A lack of parking, or parking that requires a 5 minute hike to the door.

Most of my pet peeves have already been mentioned.

1. The restroom attentdants - absolutely worthless

2. Special promotions - I don't need another t-shirt with your name on it.

3. D.J. talking too much - dj's to get people to buy dances using phases like "must be a lot of homos out there" or other simuliar statements. One time may be o.k. but numerous gets old.

4. $2 bills. One club I go to all change is given in $2 bills and if you ask for 1's instead they make a big ordeal out of it(the waitress does not have any 1's, at the bar they make you wait beacause they have to get them out of the safe) As a result I usually leave the club with a couple 2's put them on my dresser(beause I can't spend them anywhere else) then forget about them the next time I go to the club. I may have 10-12 $2 bills on my dresser.

4.(Maybe this should be in an extras thread, but..) I was going to leave dancers out of this but since DJ's were brought up on the post above I guess they are fair game. Dancers during private dances either pulling up my shirt or asking me to take it off and then sucking on my nipples. That does nothing for me other than make me feel uncomfortable. I never hear anyone talking about before, but it has happened to me several times with different dancers so I know I am not alone.

5.Finally, not really a pet peeve, but dancers slapping themselves on the ass. I know it has been brought up before, but it just does not do anything for me.

01-28-2003, 05:33 AM
Yeah, I just don't get the ass slapping bit!

McClay
01-28-2003, 09:33 AM
I agree with the ass slapping. Is that supposed to be a turn on, because it isn’t. Unless its two girls slapping each others ass, then maybe.

On a similar note, girls who slam their shoes into the stage. Hard to describe if you haven’t seen it, but picture the dancer laying on he back, legs bent back over her chest, an she will slam her shoes/feet into the stage over her head. Ya, thats great your flexible, nifty, but you don't need to smack the stage for us guys to notice it.

And last, when I am getting a dance, I really don't care for the girl to remove my belt or untuck my shirt (and no it wasn't for any sort of extras). If I came to a club dressed nice, I don’t want to have to go fix it after a 5 minute dance.

Finally, when a dancer sits next to you and within seconds a waitress is there asking if you would like to buy the dancer a drink. I know this is so that a club can make some cash, but I am not going to buy every dancer who sits next to me a drink. If she has been sitting for a bit, and I have expressed any sort of interest that’s one thing, but the moment they sit down, getting hassled about drinks is annoying.

Richard_Head
01-28-2003, 02:56 PM
just to add a few more:

1) the girl at the door who expects a tip for collecting your cover charge.

2) dancers who want to start a lap dance half way through a song.

3) dancers who won't take NO for an answer.

4) bachelor parties, I really have no desire to see another bachelor embarrassed in front of his friends, it brings the whole club to a grinding halt.

The "wanna dance" sales pitch is at the top of my list. It occurs mostly in juice bars though I've been approached in topless clubs as well. Bottomline, if the girl doesn't bother to invest a couple of minutes of friendly chatter, she won't have my business. :)

01-28-2003, 05:41 PM
At a club I used to work at....

Waitress will haggle customer to buy ladies drink EVERYTIME a different dancer sits with him even for just a second.

30 minute champagne room deals that can run $300 -$400. Lord forbid that a dancer don't PUSH the sale on the customer. That makes it highly impossible for the customer to spend $$$ on different VARIETY of dancers.

Credit card system for funny money will cost lots more than the amout the customer ordered.

Music too loud that you can't hold a desent conversation.

DJs talking to much and are obnoxious.

Door person and bouncer wants tip for letting you in the LD booth.

House fees are high

Yeah, I made good money, but the customer base was very few because of the high hustle factor and THAT freaks out customers from coming back. Why I worked there a long time is beyond me! ???


-----------------------------------------------------------


The club I work since last July has NO pet peeves as the one above. I like my current club A LOT! 8)

NO hustling dancers drinks.

NO hustling 30 minute ($300-$400) champagne room deals. The customer has the option to buy one or more single song dances on different VARIETY of dancers and they can stay a while.

NO credit card system for funny money. Use ATM or better yet, come prepared with lots-o-cash.

You can actually hold a decent conversaton because the music is not to loud.

NO loud / obnoxious DJs to deal with. We have a juke box system.

Doorperson / bouncer never ask for tip to let you in the door / LD booth.

House fee is VERY reasonable.

I STILL make good money, because the customer is NOT freaked out about high hustle factor, therefore they can and want to stay and get dances and come back to the club on their next outing. :D

01-28-2003, 06:30 PM
1) Being approached by 2 dancers who insist I get a dance with both of them at the same time. I prefer one at a time.

2) A dancer who demands "give me love, put a ten right here."

3) Loud, distorted music. So loud that my body is vibrating to the beat.

4) Dancers that don't complete champagne rooms or are absent for long time. Other dancers "friends" of the absent dancer who fill in for her. Both the absent dancer and her "friend" expect to receive payment for the full champagne room. So you'd pay twice as much and not get what you wanted.

5) Bad champagne.

Intemperate climate control. Yes, I understand that they like the place kept cool so our nipples will be hard all the time. But there is a difference between air conditioning, and attempting to initiate the next Ice Age. When even the people wearing clothes are complaining, it's time to ease off the A/C just a bit.

Last night I thought I would give a brand new club a visit. This club was very nice inside and out, it is part of The Penthouse Key Club Chain. About 15 minutes after I get there they run one these 2 for 1 + plus a shirt promo(pet peeve #1), but I am a sucker for a pretty face and got talked into it. We went to a different area of the club to a little booth were I had to pay the club upfront for the dances(pet peeve #2) of cource I had to tip the lady at the booth.

We are sent to this room just big enough for a couch. The dancer closes the door and no music could be heard. There was this box on the wall kind of a mini jukebox. You pick the type of music you like(rock, techno, r&b, etc) then you have to pay $2 per song to get your music(new pet peeve #3). If I have to pay for music I should at least get to pick the song not just the type. To make matters worse the the song gets cut barely past the middle(pet peeve #4). I think it will be awhile before I go back.

P.S. The "free" shirt I got actualy had zipper on the front circa 1977. Too bad it did not have the big ring on the zipper. I loved that shirt when I was six.

01-29-2003, 06:12 AM
1) Being offered a really hot private dance, then not delivering it; 2) Being charged extra once inside the booth or room, after paying the stated charge . Definitely I'd rather be told upfront how much I have to spend and what to expect from the dancer.

chet
01-29-2003, 07:37 AM
Another one on the top of my list is when a dancer approaches me while I'm at the tip rail. It wasn't too long ago that a dancer wouldn't approach a customer who was sitting at the stage. It's just not proper etiquette. Sadly, it's no longer practiced in most clubs from my experience. Hussling customers at the tiprail is now the norm.

For one, if I was ready for a dance, I wouldn't be sitting at the stage. More important, it's rude to the dancer onstage because you're distracting her performance. Once she's done onstage, and I leave the tiprail, by all means approach me. :)

Pryce
01-29-2003, 11:25 AM
Over priced dances: I'm not talking about $10-$25 dances, I'm talking about $40-$50 for 2 minutes.

Cut songs!!!!!!!: Play a song. Play half a song. But don't play 1.5-2 minutes and call that a song.

Tip demanders: Never had a dancer demand a tip...but I have had waitresses. "You know a tip isn't included in that", while I was getting her tip ready. >:(

Dancers who stay away from couples: "Hey! We've got green dollars too!"

Taking off clothes at the beginning of a lap: Not stripping, just getting naked and then dancing...I want to see you strip.

Features who have others pick up their tips: Just lame...I'll save my dollars for someone who'll give me attention.

Dancers who look similar in the dark lighting and wear the same color clothes: "Hi, I wanted a...umm...nevermind."

Loud lappers: This ain't a porno.

I'm sure there are more....but I've gotta run!

Btw, witt, $2 bills!!! Too funny!

I think most of my pet peeves have been listed, but there is one. I went to a club last week and one of the dancers told me to buy a dance because she needed to buy her math book. ::) Give me a break. I know it was slow night (why I go, more attention) but spare me the lame excuses.

01-29-2003, 07:09 PM
When you get rushed out of the vip room right after your dances and you still got wood.

01-30-2003, 02:52 AM
Okay guys, how many times have you told a dancer when asked for a dance, "Maybe Later" and never do. I guess it works the same with their "I'll be back" and never do.

That is funny, just this past Sat night, this dancer asked me if i wanted company. I said "no". She still sat next to me! And kept talking! I totally ignored her and she finally went away. She was a pushy Russian!

Pryce you brought up an interesting point-about undressing before a lap (which honestly is what I tend to do at my club) I guess I've always thought I was thinking via a guys perspective in that you have a whopping 3 or so minutes, and they wouldn't want to spend half of that with me dressed. I figured they would be upset if I took my time undressing as I was on "their dollar" so to speak. Gave me something to think about... although I wonder if there is a middle ground whereas guys that enjoy the art of stripping can be happy as well as those that view it as they're paying for a nude dance... hmmmm

>>"and the restroom attendant is the major one. I do NOT understand it. I need help in many areas of my life, but urinating is not one of them."

i have never laughed so hard at any one statement i've ever seen on any forum then this one. i very nearly peed myself (luckily, the computer is about a 3 second dash from the potty at a dead sprint). ;D

anywho...

pretty much everything already stated i'm in agreement with. got a few to add though...

1. those obnoxious customers (usually in a group) that think it's amusing to say "uh oh, incoming!" when approached by a dancer as if she was a grenade or a nuclear warhead.

2. dancers that think stripping is throwing off their clothes like they're in the dressing room at the department store.

3. the Clydesdale Clomp - ok, it's inevitable that your shoes will make some bit of noise on stage, but what is with those girls that stomp around like they're trudging through a field of mud in their big brother's steel-toed hiking boots? if you can't even WALK like a woman don't be a dancer... stick to the hiking boots and take up farming.

* WHAT in the name of all that is sacred is that absurd ass slapping thing?

doc-catfish
01-30-2003, 01:25 PM
Funny that the restroom attendant has come up a lot!

:P Some of the clubs I go to could use one! Some barely have a restroom. Truthfully, I've seen cleaner johns in public parks. Although, you'd have to pay me damn good money to clean the men's restroom at an adult business.

Here's a few more gripes:

* Dancers who give lap dances whose mouths are practically pickled from too much alcohol (although a lot of dancers would make that same complaint about drunken customers).

* Strobe lights! "AUUGGHH! I'm blind!!" Nothing could be worse than having one of those suckers flashing in a room with mirrored walls.

* Clubs that are so dark you can't see three feet in front of you. Sure it helps with the stage lighting, but with the mirrored walls it's hard to tell what's real and what's a reflection.

* Redneck customers. By "redneck", I'm not in any way referring to guys from the South. Just guys whom act like neanderthal jackasses and don't care about making a scene in front of everybody. You can find those most anywhere. Some even wear suits.

* A trip where things just don't go as planned.

Once I drove an hour to a club to have a nice RELAXING time, only to find out I stopped in town the same weekend as a big NHRA drag racing event at a nearby racetrack (which even worse was rained out).

Nonetheless, the place was packed with "rednecks*" (*see previous rant) wall to wall. After standing holding my drink for about 30 minutes, I had enough. All I could do was laugh (and LEAVE). Nobody's fault. Just one of those things.

01-30-2003, 06:34 PM
I have a couple...

1. Dancers who sneak up behind you. I'm kind of jumpy and it scares the hell out of me. I seldom say yes to this tactic.

2. Dancers who are pushy. No means No. I especially dislike it when they try to push the most expensive option and promise "Oh I'm the best" or something.

3. Dancers who disappear into the dressing room, not to be seen again. Or dancers who sit with some guy for like an hour. Let's share the wealth!

And believe it or not.
4. I don't like being kissed on the lips. I've had that happen a few times in a teasing manner. The problem is I either am really turned off by them, or I'm really turned on by them and I suddenly have this desire to do things I'm sure I'm going to get in trouble for. That latter is really frustrating!

That wash room attendant gets me. I take medication that sometimes makes me pee after every beer I drink. One night I spent more on the attendant than I did on lap dances >:(
On another night I started to leave after taking a leak for the 8th time. The guy turned on the water and I walked right past him. He says "Hey, where I come from we wash our hands after we take a leak". I told him "Hey, Where I come from we don't piss on on hands". ;D

Richard_Head
01-31-2003, 02:35 PM
I agree about the wash room attendants, I don't want to be wasting my money on a fucking paper towel when there are naked or near naked women in the next room that I could be spending my money on. The same goes for the valet, how far away do you really have to park at most clubs anyways?

One new pet peeve, the guy who feels compelled to get up and dance with the girls, what is that about, no one wants to see that.

Pryce
02-01-2003, 05:59 PM
Tia_q, I see your point too. I guess it just depends on the guy...maybe we should poll and see what's more desired...

I couldn't agree more. I'm still new to the "game" and I'm trying to feel out what's kosher in the clubs. The last thing I need is getting mixed messages that something is acceptable when it's not. It's hard enough to keep your paws to yourself as is!

An example, I was getting a dance from a particularly rough young lady, meaning she was all over me, including opening my shirt and playing with my nipples as well as grinding almost to the point of pain (I'm not complaining, just establishing the contact level) anyway during the set she proceded to rub or almost rub parts of herself against my face & lips. I'm sitting on my hands and trying not to turn bright red while still letting her know I'm having a good time. After the set she made the comment "wow you really are a good boy" Now I'm wondering if I was supposed to do more. Confusing to say the least.

Overtly racist dancers are a big pet peeve of mine. I am very white and no one has ever confused me for a minority, but I feel very uncomfortable when a dancer starts throwing the "N word" around or making other racist statements.This does not happen often, I would guess maybe three or four times last year. I find it hard to believe someone that has just met me feels free to talk to me like that. It is a free country and if you want to limit your potential by only dancing for white guys that your choice, but I don't want to hear your slurs.

02-07-2003, 04:13 PM
Just about everything has been covered here. Just a few more: (1) Dancers who expect you, a non-smoker, to buy them a pack of cigarettes; (2) Dancers who bug you for a business card after you tell them that you don't hand them out in stripclubs; (3) Bisexual dancers who try to hustle you for two dances so you can watch them make out; (4) Dancers who get angry when you tell them, as politely as you can, that you are not interested in a shopping trip.

Racism in stripclubs is a whole separate topic which people want to pretend doesn't exist. From where you are seated, to which dancers ignore you to waitresses calling you cheap for not buying shots, some clubs can be a really bigoted.

DJ's: PLEASE JUST SHUT UP! You have ONE job. Get the girls on and off stage and keep things flowing. We are not there to hear you! You are not the show.

Features: I avoid a club like the plague when there is a feature. High cover charges, the sets get all screwed up, puts all the house girls in a bad mood and attracts too many amatuer customers- also putting the house girls that I go to see in a bad mood.

Question for someone who knows: Why is it that a feature can get away with shoving a 13" black dildo into herself and it's ok?? If a house girl even touches herself south of the equator, many clubs will fine or fire her.

Question for someone who knows: Why is it that a feature can get away with shoving a 13" black dildo into herself and it's ok?? If a house girl even touches herself south of the equator, many clubs will fine or fire her.

a feature dancer can't be "fired" as she isn't "hired" the same way a house dancer is... a feature dancer is booked to provide entertainment in a club for specific dates in which she receives a specific sum of money (some feature dancers only do stage work and collect stage tips on top of the feature fee she's paid by the club, and some also sell table/lap/private dances on top of the fee and the stage tips she receives). the club may or may not have any idea of what a feature dancer's stage show consists of, and may or may not lay down any rules in that regard.

as for why the feature dancer isn't fined or otherwise "punished" for her behavior, how would you know whether she was or not? if the club doesn't approve of a feature dancer engaging in certain behavior on stage, at the very least they can refuse to book her again in the future. seeing as feature dancers rely solely on club bookings to make their living, i would think they would find the prospect of not being booked again more painful to the pocketbook then a fine would be.

it's my guess that the club where you witnessed this phenomenon doesn't care what the feature dancer does as they can always use the excuse that they had no idea such behavior was part of her show, which they would never be able to get away with if they permitted their house dancers to engage in the same behavior... if the house dancers were doing such things, eventually the club would be found out and would then have to face suffering whatever the appropriate consequences would be.

i also seriously doubt any house dancer would want to engage in this type of activity even if the club "allowed" it... keep in mind, the amount of money a house dancer gets for her stage work doesn't even BEGIN to compare to what a feature would get, so there's no incentive at all for a house dancer to do such things. on top of that, i'm not aware of any place in the U.S. where putting things in the "nether region orfices" is legal.

02-09-2003, 01:37 AM
Alanna: Thanks for your perspective. What you say makes a lot of sense. A club can just deny any prior knowledge of what the feature planned to do. By the way, I am note condoning any of this sort of thing, quite the opposite. I feel that when features start doing this stuff during their shows it only makes it harder for the house girls in the long run.

doc-catfish
02-09-2003, 03:53 AM
Personally, I like it when feature dancers do something to help the house dancers out like offer a half price 8x10 or polaroid for buying a dance from a house girl.

Hello,

This is in reply to Chet. I am a dancer and just relocated to SoCal. I have never danced down here before now and I am appalled at the dancers trying to take customers away while a dancer is performing!

When I was dancing outside of San Francisco, this never happened. Not only was it an unspoken rule amonst dancer but even management discouraged it.

I guess I will have to get used to the LA ways. I am happy that at least one guy is annoyed with this practice and behavior.

Cheers,

Hi Motion, welcome to the board, btw. I'm glad to hear that there are still clubs and dancers who adhere to the tiprail etiquette such as yourself.

Please keep practicing what you've learned from your old club and don't succumb to the SoCal ways. I know it's easier said than done. There are still customers such as myself who reward dancers like you, so don't think your courtesy won't go unnoticed. Keep it up.:)

1. Dancers who give me dirty looks when I go to a club (not where I work) as a paying customer.
2. Customers who ogle, hit on or proposition me when I'm trying to enjoy the show.
3. Those damn club dollars! They charge a high percentage to the customers for purchasing them, then charge the girls to cash them in. Rip off.
4. Clubs with no ATM.
5. Bad waitresses. Even worse, bad waitresses who push for tips after letting my glass sit dry for half an hour then taking 20 minutes to bring two drinks after finally getting my order - especially when I just watched her spend a most of the lax time sitting on another customer's lap. I run a tab and tip well, so bring me a drink dammit!
6. Bouncers who do nothing but walk around looking for cash or wallets dropped on the floor.
7. Bouncers who push for tips from customers getting dances in the LD room.
8. No ladies bathroom other than the one in the dressing room. When I go to have a good time, the last thing I want to do is invade the dressing room as a civilian. It makes some dancers uncomfortable, and it makes me uncomfortable.
9. Bathroom attendants! It's been mentioned by the guys, but some clubs have them in the ladies room as well. I don't want to use the community cosmetics, I have my own mints, and I can wash my hands all by myself. I don't want to pay for something I don't need or use.
10. Dancers who approach my male escort for dances but totally ignore me. If I'm the one tipping everyone $2-$5 at the stage, I'm probably the one who's going to tip at the table so don't ignore me.
11. Dancers who never come around when I tip $5 at the stage and ask for a dance after the set. If you don't want or have time to dance for me, say so and I'll ask someone else.
12. It's been said before but I say it again: Managers or staff who ask me to work when I am just trying to have a good time. I don't want to work in a club that needs to beg for dancers, and I only want to enjoy myself when I'm there as a civilian.

I don't visit clubs I work in when I'm not working. When I go to have a good time at other clubs, I get hit up to work or audition alot. It's ridiculous.

The $5 extra for a dance on your credit card is the funny money fee. It's an exhorbitant fee and should be limited. Also, even though the club ATM may charge a high rate, it's still usually less than what the club charges for funny money. A club that doesn't have an ATM is definitely discouraging spending, because many customers (including myself) don't want to use funny money for whatever reason, and if a customer has to leave the building to hit the ATM, he most likely won't come back. For me, I generally leave the club if I run out of money and there's no ATM.

You have piss monkeys in the girl's restroom also! How funny! You should see the ones we have now...the night shift guy is a young guy with pointy hair (which changes color almost daily). The day shift guy is incredibly creepy.

But it could be worst...remember the husband of a certain Russian Sensation! :o :P

I major strip club pet peeve of mine is non-dancer hustlers (shooter girls, flower girls) who put you on the spot when trying to sell stuff. Like, I will be sitting with a customer, and a shot girl will come over and ask the customer if he would like a shot. If he says no, often times they will ask me if I want one. Obviously, they expect me to say yes, but if the customer doesn't want to buy one he will probably feel like he is being scammed, in a way. Don't get me wrong, the shot girls in my club are nice girls and I get along with them and everything, but it can be more than slightly annoying when they try to push their shots on me, especially when I have to drive home at the end of the night.

Hum, I know this probably belongs on the pink site, but as a little piece of advice regarding shot girls: If you're sitting with a guy when she comes over, as soon as she gets to your table, before she has a chance to ask, look over at your customer and ask if he feels like doing shots. If he says no, smile at the shot girl ans shake your head no. If he says yes or he'll do one if you do - either tell him you've had enough for the night but he should go ahead if he wants. Or you can do like some girls and take the shot, then just toss it when he drinks his - most people throw their heads back and close their eyes to do a shot, so you can use that moment to lose the alcohol. I know some guys don't want to buy alcohol for a girl if she's not going to drink it, but most of those same guys sort of expect you to drink with them also - in that case you just pretend and no one gets hurt.

The shot girl scam is one of the biggest rip-offs going. They expect the customer to buy one for himself, one for the dancer sitting with him and one for the shot girl. This is at $5.00 or $15.00 for a round. That's money better saved towards the next dance. I don't understand why dancers play along with this racket when it cuts into a customer's available cash for dances. I have seen dancers toss the shots, so I assume they are in on the scam or the cut. One shot girl told me that she has to pay for all of the shots up front, so she has to sell them all or take a loss. Well, that's not my problem. The tray is usually arranged so the shot girl and the dancer get the non-alcoholic drink, while the customer pays $15.00 for a shot of Bailey's and two of plain chocolate milk. A real rip. And the only way to stop them is to be rude and tell them to get lost, because a polite no thank you just doesn't work.

just to add a few more:

4) bachelor parties, I really have no desire to see another bachelor embarrassed in front of his friends, it brings the whole club to a grinding halt.

The club I work at currently does to Bachelor (mainly)/Birthday "Boy" shows on the stage. I agree that it does bring the club to a grinding halt and have learnt (as a dancer) to not ask for private dance during this time as all attention is on the stage.

On the other hand, I personally don't mind watching those shows. My dancer self watches it to see what the other dancers are doing (so I can see what I can and can't do when I have to do one) whereas my other self likes watching it for the spectacle aspect of it.

Havn't heard too many complaints from the audience in re: this... also the Bucks/Birthday Boys seem to enjoy it as well as the party that they are with.... I got a nice $50 tip doing one of them.

I had to pay the club upfront for the dances(pet peeve #2)

Is your #2 pet peeve to pay up-front for private dances? If so... then don't come to the Gold Coast or anywhere on the East Coast of Australia for that matter.

On the G.Coast... every club requires you to pay up-front for private dances. Until I've been told otherwise, the same applies to the other clubs on the East Coast of Australia as well.

That's just the way things operate "down under" :-)

I know what you mean! I was watching one of the better dancers at the club I work at during one my shift recently when I noticed this.... she walked around the pole dragging her shoes (making noise) as well as dragging her shoes walking around the stage.

What was with that?? It was actually quite annoying! ??? ???

Absolutely! Two of my favorite dancers. One turned her back to me and said, "Untie me, please," when the topless lap dance was starting. The other one did the nude lap thing on more than one occasion, and each time she started, she stepped up, topless, right in front of me, and told me to take her bottoms off of her. Wonderfully sexy, each time.



Actually, I wear a bra as part of my "outfit" and like offering the customer the chance to take it off... it allows me to feel like I'm making the dance a little more interactive. It also allows me to let the guys who can take bras off easily to impress me by doing so.... strangely, I have yet to meet a customer who can do it with one hand ;)

And well.. those that have trouble I will give a quick mini-lesson to (they don't mind..). It is quite a skill and not every guy knows how to undo a bra... which is something that amazed me when I first started doing this in private dances.
