    One of my biggest burnout causes though, was not making a lot of money. Being stuck at my old, shitty club that didn't have many customers (except for weekend nights) and exorbitantly charged us for house fees, VIP rooms and tipouts, I wasn't making an amount I was happy with most of the time and it had me stuck in a sort of vicious cycle. One day I left with $2 after tipout & working 10 hours and just said.... FUCK THIS!! A friend helped me audition at her club 2 hours away & I used money I made there to move to that area. Burnout for me happens way less often now that I'm not struggling to pay bills after showing my naked body. If I have a bad night here, I still remind myself that was my good/decent night at the other place.

    Although, this is just my experience, if you are making enough money/have the job flexibility to support your needs, then who cares what I'm saying or if you're not making as much. I'm aware that moving cities or trying a new club isn't feasible for a lot of people, and I'm lucky to not have kids or any other obligations to be able to do that. I'm just sharing what got me personally out of my rough time & what changed my perspective on this industry.

    It's a rough town in particular with the large percentage being tourists, regulars can only be locals and that is ultimately what makes a dancer's life easier.

    The hustle is everywhere though in the strip, all genders, vanilla work and sex work. I still like it though and agree on most points. The city is recovering even without the convention circuit, resort weekend occupancy is almost completely booked, but weekday is slow.

    It was too much like a nightclub with dancers in the background. Which goes back to what I was saying before of how things evolve. Like all those “big clubs” could get rid of the dancers and they would still make a ton of money as a brand. At sapphire, I remember feeling like I wasn’t even working at a strip club
    It really depends on what you mean though, could they transition to a nightclub and compete? maybe, but its location is still industrial like, which is ok for other cities but not Vegas since they are competing with resort nightclubs. In the end the old axiom holds true wherever women go its where the money is made, if you remove the dancers you would have to seriously compete for women customers (and sapphires gets a lot, but not enough) since that is what men will follow.

    ^ lol you are putting me on the spot, here are the latest rules

    Sin City strip clubs that went dark when Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered casinos, clubs and nonessential businesses closed in March 2020 will be able to open May 1 at 80% of fire code capacity under strict social distancing guidelines.

    The rules will allow strip club entertainers to get closer than 3 feet (0.9 meters) to patrons if the entertainer received at least a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days earlier, according to county rules, or if the dancer tests negative in a weekly COVID-19 test.
    The governor has set a June 1 date for lifting essentially all state restrictions except a requirement for people to wear face coverings.

    I also make an amount that I’m happy to keep stripping and not burned out. Also, even though customers in their 20s and 30s are infamous for not appearing in clubs, when they do, I have a positive view for many in that group I’ve met.

    That being said, the consolidation of clubs has happened since 2008 and hasn’t seemed to bottom out yet. I’ve had the fortune to be able to travel to different places, and have a good opinion of quite a few clubs that (IMO) are helping to carry the weight of this industry well. At this moment in time, my opinion is that they most likely won’t die within our lifetime, but that possibility can’t be 100% dismissed.

    Here is an interesting article somebody wrote tracking how many clubs exist right now:
    https://tuscl.net/article.php?id=57617
    ...which is down slightly from when he did the same count in 2018
    https://tuscl.net/discussion.php?id=61036

    Keep stacking cash, but also keep eyes wide open. And don’t take the enjoyment for granted. Or at least that’s how I view things for myself.

    most smaller clubs didnt have the cash in the bank to sit closed for a year. the mid tier and higher who did are either opening now or have been open for a while. Take Penthouse Tampa for instance, they took the pandemic closing as a time to do a total remodel from inside and out. Smart Operators did the same in some fashion.

    Those properties of the smaller clubs will either fade away or be reopened with new owners. I know of three places off the top of my head that are sitting simply because the owner doesnt have the funding to reopen.

    Good stuff.

    The Great Recession killed a number of clubs for sure, especially since it hit white collar workers hard, who of course are the bulk of many clubs' revenues. From 2010-2017 the economic "recovery" was so sluggish that clubs did not bounce back as easily as we could have hoped.

    Then, when the economy finally gained steam in 2018-2020, COVID hit. Prior to COVID, in my local area of Jacksonville we actually had new clubs opening. But you can't deprive club businesses of revenues for several months without some of them folding up.

    If we looked at 2002-2008, I bet we'd see that the number of clubs actually increased during that time. It was a good economic period for clubs and the widespread adoption of high speed Internet made them much easier to find, especially clubs in more remote areas.

    Where this goes from here? Who knows, but IMHO some friendlier club states would probably see increases in the numbers if we had a sustained and stable economic upswing covering some number of years. Florida and Texas, traditionally more tolerant of clubs and bursting at the seams with new transplants with money to spend, definitely come to mind as potential growth states. I'm sure that there are others as well.

    I'm sad to see any club close, largely because it is so damn hard to open one, at least here in New England. We recently lost a 'juice only' club, the locals had been trying to shut it down for years, yanked it's liquor license a while ago. They finally succumbed, maybe already is another convenient mart in it's place. ;-(

    I don't recall seeing a new club within driving distance in years. Even a 'hole in the wall' club has value for a future investor to 'expand' into a new vibrant club.

    Who knows, with the trend towards decriminalization of sex work in major cities like NY, maybe we are seeing the beginnings of a movement like that of legalizing weed.

    The economic downturn began with the Reagan-era tax law changes (marginal tax rates, et al) that reduced the wealth of the middle class and greatly increased the wealth of the wealthy. Since then several other changes in laws and tax codes have made things even worse to the point where most of the wealth lies at the feet of the already-wealthy. Our government seems incapable of seeing this and fixing the gross mistakes made previosly that have developed into the pitfall of extreme partisanism and the insanity of Trumpism.
    I loved going to strip clubs; I actually made some friends there. Now things are different for the clubs and for me. As a result I am not as happy.

    Customers are not entitled to grope, disrespect, or rob strippers. This is their job, not their hobby, and they all need income. Clubs are not just some erotic show for guys to view while drinking.

    NOTE: anything I post here, outside of a direct quote, is my opinion only, which I am entitled to. Take it for what you estimate it is worth.

    Right. That's why the number of strip clubs in this country decreased from the 80's to 2008.

    Oh...ahhh...wait...
