    I think many of us have witnessed large enough numbers of men pay dancers far older than 25 large enough sums of money to completely shatter the statement that stripping is for late teens to mid-20's.

    Nope. I was banking and doing pole work until I was 46. Retired due to the pandemic.

    That's mostly because of experience we have and make generalization of certain group of customers, we tend to know who comes in to spend on dancers and those who are just there hanging out and waste a dangerous time. Once a young attractive dancer gets a "jackpot" night then shreds her "party girl" persona, it's way more deadly than any veteran dancers.

    Man, I really miss my young body. I do agree a young dancer can able to work long hours and more days.

    I used to think like you when I was younger....I was sorely mistaken. Plenty like younger and some are not party girls but there are the guys who want a connection with someone they can relate to at their age and they pay well. What's a 50 yr old guy gonna do talking about instagram/snapchat/tik tok/etc with this new generation LOL? There will always be ones who come purely for the young ones though.

    Random thought: I'm running fucking late today *eyeroll* I'm rushing to be on time and he drove 45 minutes away to come here. FUCK.

    For me: Money speaks louder than words.

    If someone is way past 25 and making good money, perhaps being a consistent top earner like some of the ones I've met, being happy about it, there's no reason to stop just because of what other people have to say. Words are empty and most people's opinions are pretty useless, I mean at the end of the day nothing we say here is going to stop a hot 35+ year old dancer from getting a man's money if she wants it. I don't think of it as a competition either (just to clarify I've never said younger dancers don't make money, all I've said is that older dancers do get paid a lot by men), what matters is whether the money made is enough to please the individual dancer. As for being able to work more hours and days it's debatable, but personally I don't even care about that because I've done the whole dancing 5 nights a week with 8 hour shifts minimum thing and I don't think of it as something to strive for. I'd rather work smarter not harder, but we're all different and that means different strategies and priorities and there's nothing wrong with that.

    If someone past that age is STILL making money clean and easy and knows what she's doing.. why on Earth should she stop if the good money is still there???

    The OGs here are letting some of you know that it is still possible IF you can AND want to. You quit once you feel like it or the money is no longer there. The smart money makers around me are 30+. None of that stress bullshit. Lol.

    But you do you.. to each their own.

    THIS is true! I don't " close " the club anymore like the old days I can still hang. Many dancers who have " done this awhile " know to work smart. Save energy for private rooms + we eat right even packing snacks hahaha. I might leave at midnight these days but I still do make $.

    The bottom line is that you shouldn't listen to anyones rambling bullshit about YOUR money. You certainly could even turn the conversation on them to start picking AT THEM but I wouldn't even bother ! I would probably mention something like " you seem to not know much about this industry / earning capacity ect. " and then just walk off !

    I think it's very similar to the modeling industry in many ways. It's all about taking care of yourself, finding a market that works for you, and capitalizing on that. You might even start diversifying your portfolio, just like older models do. You could cam one night a week, for example, to start building a customer base, start an OF account and post stuff from the club, etc.

    Like, you obviously aren't considered "older" at this point, lol, but I'm just referring to society's ridiculous notion that women over 22 are "older." It's never too soon to start taking smart steps to ensure your future success!
