    Default Want to start stripping in Portland, OR

    Hey y'all,

    new to the forum and want to start stripping. I'm in pdx and have no idea where to start. I've been pole dancing about a year now but have never been on stage, I can definitely dance a little but I have super bad stage fright so I'm always worried about looking foolish. I sent my pics in to casa diablo and club rouge but haven't gone in to audition yet. Any advice on what clubs might be a good fit for me would be greatly appreciated! I am not picky with shift type and don't even expect to be making a lot of money, it's just something I want to ease into. I'm also super nervous about auditioning, I think even more so than if I were to start working. Thanks in advance!

    Both pre-covid would have dancers start on dayshift before going into nighttime. Idk what’s going on now, googled and saw Rouge opens late in the afternoon and Casa is only open five days a week now. I have nothing useful to add other than have fun, and nothing wrong with bouncing around. If downtown doesn’t work well for you, some suburb clubs probably won’t be bad either.

    Good luck auditioning !
    A couple months ago I dropped by Rouge.
    I think the window to audition is 4-5 pm but call ahead ( to double check )!

    Thanks! I am dancing at a club on Friday night but it seems a little shady. I mean maybe it’s not? I don’t know how any of this works. I just texted my pics and they asked if I wanted to dance this friday night, which was surprising to me since they have no idea what I look like in person or anything. I said sure and asked about more info, they just told me they would tell me everything when I got there. Does this all seem okay or weird? Mostly I’m just thinking their club is super dead and they don’t have very many girls working.

    I havenít worked in pdx post covid but all my friends that still dance there talk constantly about how rough it is there rn. Friends that lived solely off stripping for years have started getting vanilla jobs etc bc the stripping economy there just hasnít quite recovered yet. So honestly if you donít need to strip rn, itís better not to. Also as a stripper that worked during covid-itís not fun, being sick fucking sucked and itís inevitable if youíre in the club. Also Iím fully vaccinated lol.

    I wouldn't talk yourself out of working. Why not just give it a try ? You can leave if you are not comfortable. Dancing is competetive. No one is going to hand hold through the process. You really need to just show up at the clubs, ask when auditions are and try ! Always just assume they are auditioning because they almost always will . Portland clubs can take 6-8 days from what I understand to actually give you a night to work. It's very slow moving compared to most clubs in the country ( where you work the same night usually ).

    That's actually how i started at my old club in PDX. Texted the DJ a photo and started that night. They'll make the actual decision once you show up - if you look busted or something, then they won't waste time talking you through the rules.

    Stripping moves very quickly - it has a super high turnover rate, and clubs are almost always auditioning. So you're right that this would be weird in the vanilla world, but not in stripping. It doesn't mean they're slow; if anything, it could mean they're busy and need girls quickly.

    Hope it goes well! We all get stage fright when we're new to a club or have been out of the game for a while. You'll get over it quickly!
