    Default *another* survey for a paper--but at least this one's by a stripper! *wink*

    Hey everyone. I am doing a paper for a gender class and I'd love it if some of you could answer a few questions for me. I know I get frustrated when I feel "studied," but hopefully many of you won't mind so much since I actually am a stripper and not just an academic voyeur! If this post is just horribly offensive, please delete it and accept my sincere apology.

    My paper won't be used for anything but determining a portion of my grade for my class. I don't intend to publish it, but I will share it with individuals who express interest in reading it (including members of this board; just PM me). I won't be using any names or pseudonyms found here, although I might quote respondants who are willing, using a different pseudonym, if necessary. I will check with the person first before I do that. No one's answers will be reprinted in whole in the paper, although everyone's responses will be available to my teacher at her request. The risks for participating are the same risks one has in giving out any kind of personal information on the web--so please take that into account when replying.

    Feel free to contact me with questions or comments about the paper or the survey. You can PM your answers to me, or post them as a reply here. Please reply as soon as you can. Thanks in advance.
    Please answer as many questions as possible, but feel free to ignore those with which you are not comfortable. In addition, please feel free to add any information that will help clarify your answers, or things you think might I might find useful.

    Edited to add: thanks in advance to everyone who reads this, and extra thanks to everyone who responds!

    I've edited this a lot, actually. Edits will now be in BOLD. If I edit it again after you reply, it's completely up to you if you want to add to your answers or not.


    here it is:

    also--sorry for the stodgy format for all this--I was going to code this as an actual survey to post on the web but wasn't able to do it. The answers are repetitive because I thought it would help me code faster if I didn't have to scroll a lot to maintain consistency.

    May I ask, if you are writing about gender themes, why does your survey have so many questions about how much money dancers are making?

    1. 20
    2. white
    3. a year
    4. Wisconsin
    5. small city
    6. weeknights 150-250, fri/sat 200-500
    7. not sure how much customers spend- on average probably 50-150
    8. we are full nude, full contact (no extras). guys can touch the girl wherever she is comfortable, but the breasts, butt, and coochie are always off-limits.
    9. I allow guys to touch my arms, legs, back while I'm giving a lap dance, but nothing else. If a guy slaps my ass, he gets a slap across the face.
    10. white
    11. the young gangbanger wannabe's who try to grab everyone and ask everyone if they will give them a blowjob: 0-25..... the respectable nice ones:50-75
    12. 75-100
    13. 0-25
    14. 0-25
    15. 5
    16. 8
    17. 2
    18. 2
    19. black- 6 approaching, 10 dancing
    20. white- 10 approaching, 10 dancing
    21. hispanic -4 approaching, 8 dancing
    22. asian- 4 approaching, 8 dancing

    I skipped the question about the makeup of our dancers- we usually have 5-8 dancers each night- no asian, one black, no hispanic, the rest white. customers are mostly white, but we do tend to get mexicans and asians in once in a while. black customers have become more common recently, but we still only get them in once in a while.

    I definetely welcome questions, especially since this one is making me think pretty hard about this!
    My paper is going to focus on dancer perceptions of clientele race and its effects on their encounters, if any. However, I think it would be naive of me to write as though race alone frames these interactions. Every dancer is going to have her own ideas about different races, ranging from "'X race' is dirty" to "Race doesn't even matter." A very important aspect of these ideas is the dancer's opinion of how much a customer spends. I think maybe I should add something about "How often do you dance for x race?" or "What is the racial makeup of *your* typical customer base?" as opposed or in addition to the question regarding the customers in the whole club. My reasoning is that if a dancer says she is totally comfortable dancing for xyz, but never does, why is that? It may have to do with the dancers perception of how much xyz men spend in the club. Does that make sense? It may end up being totally irrelevant, but I'd rather have info I don't need than the other way around. I'm sorry if it upset you or seemed intrusive, and I want to reemphasive that no one should feel obliged to answer any question that makes them feel uncomfortable.

    Thanks for asking this question--it's helping me get a better grasp of where I'm going with all this. Especially because I'm a rather sheltered white stripper and overcoming my cultural baggage so that I can be fair, objective and accurate is pretty challenging!


    Edited to add: the reason I ask about average nightly earnings is to get an idea of what percentage a person can make from a "typical" xyz client. Like, if I say the average black guy spends $100, but not how much I make, you wouldn't know if $100 was a lot to me or not.

    ANOTHER EDIT!! I added a little to the survey. The parts I added are in bold. If you've already replied and don't feel like answering the new stuff, don't worry about it.

    Okay. This is actually my final commentary on this - you are obligated, according to tenets of ethical research, to provide your subjects with information about your projects. They should know what they are participating in. Me, I would recommend your current hypothosis, what you hope to find out, what the paper is likely to be used for and all that. I'm sure your school has guidelines, or you can check the American Sociological Association. No researcher should be seeking out subjects without fully disclosing the nature of the project. I don't think you are trying to conceal it, and I don't think you're lying; but I think it is important that people fully realize what they are participating in.

    jenny--that's a really good point! Thank you for bringing this up. Please don't be hesitate to post again or PM me if you see other issues I need to address, or if you have more advice to offer.
    To everyone: I'm sorry (and a bit embarrassed) I didn't do that from the beginning. Duh. I learned about informed consent in Psych 100 and Soc 100!
    My paper won't be used for anything but determining a portion of my grade for my class. I don't intend to publish it, but I will share it with individuals who express interest in reading it (including members of this board; just PM me). I won't be using any names or pseudonyms found here, although I might quote respondants who are willing, using a different pseudonym, if necessary. I will check with the person first before I do that. No one's answers will be reprinted in whole in the paper, although everyone's responses will be available to my teacher at her request. The risks for participating are the same risks one has in giving out any kind of personal information on the web--so please take that into account when replying.

    Here is my prelim assignment which I used to present the idea to my prof:

    Title: Exotic Dancers’ Perceptions of and Responses to Clientele Race

    Research Question: How does a female exotic dancer’s perception of a male patron’s race affect their interactions?

    Summary: In my paper I will examine the interactions between customers and exotic dancers in the United States. More specifically, I will address what effects, if any, a customer’s race has on these interactions. I will provide a short summary of a typical strip club environment to give the reader a valid context for understanding the client/dancer relationship. Using the framework, I will explore the issues of race perception, privilege, and gender roles.

    Research Design: I will use academic articles to help establish a basic understanding of sex work and exotic dancing. (Of course, I will be trying to represent what I think sex work is and the articles will be chosen to back me up--so not a bunch of anti-porn or mysongist tripe.) I will also draw information from recent autobiographical works of exotic dancers. I will conduct a survey among exotic dancers regarding their perceptions of client race and behavior. I will attempt to interview a small number of customers and exotic dancers about this topic. I will cite articles pertaining to gender role expectations among different American subcultures.

    Potential Sources: Frank, Katherine. “Strip Clubs and their Regulars.” American Sexuality 1.4 (2003): 9 Nov. 2005 <http://nsrc.sfsu.edu/Mag
    Article.cfm?Article=98&PageID=23&SID=6807E9EEBDDD2 116B3CF5EAC25A6D368&DSN=nsrc_rev2>.

    Journal of Women's History 17.1 (2005): 137-164. (yeah, this is about Canada, not the US. These sources were just supposed to show we'd actually started our research. )





    Off topic--holy crap, this board has a lot of smileys!!!

    Well, I would not assume that my clients are significantly different than the average client. But they might be.

    Thanks Jenny! I can't believe people won't tell you about their research! I wonder why they don't.

    It occurred to me someone here might be interested in how I'd answer these questions, so here ya go!


    1. PM
    2. 25
    3. White
    4. Off and on for nearly 4 years.
    5. The Midwest.
    6. Suburb/small city
    7. Dancers: 70% white, 25% black, 5% Asian.
    Customers: 70% white, 20% Hispanic, 5% black, 5% Asian.
    8. ~$250-300
    9. $50-75
    10. PG-13 one-way contact (grinding with ass or leg is way more common than groin-on-groin)
    11. No touching other than holding my hand, rubbing my back, "innocent" stuff like that. ESPECIALLY no "sneaky" behavior to touch me or vice versa. No overt or intentionally malicious "isms" (sexism, racism, homophobia...ism...heh, etc). No persistant price-hagglers.
    12. White
    13. 50-75
    14. 75-100
    15. 75-100
    16. 50-75
    17. I think I make more from Asian men and less from black men. Also, whites and Hispanics seem to spend more on dances, and blacks and Asians seem to spend more on drinks (for themselves or for girls).
    18. 9
    19. 7.5
    20. 7.5
    21. 9.5

    hope I didn't botch up the question order

    I appreciate your honesty. Why are you using money as a basis for interaction? Would a broader conceptualization of interaction (includiing things like amount of time spent on the hustle) just overcomplicate things?

    here it is:

    Email address or preferred way to contact you if necessary (AIM, LJ, etc):
    PM

    What is your age?
    24

    What is your race?
    Caucasian/Alaska Native

    For how long have you danced?
    Eight years

    In which part of the country do you dance?
    PA

    Do you dance in a city, suburb, or rural area?
    Rural area

    What is the racial makeup of dancers at your club? What about customers, in an average week? (example: 80% white, 15% black, 5% Asian)
    Dancers 100% White looking
    Customers 90% White, 5% black, 3% hispanic, 2% other

    How much money do you earn on average per night (USD)?
    Enough

    What does the average customer spend per visit (USD)?
    1/2 of my nightly average.

    Is your club no contact, one-way contact, or two-way contact? (What is enforced, not the “official” rules.)
    One way contact, two way for some regulars.

    What are your boundaries for acceptable client behavior?
    They must respect my boundaries and my autonomy - physically, my boundaries are flexible.

    If you date men, what race do you tend to date?
    I date women.

    How much does the average black client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    About 1/4 my nightly average.

    How much does the average white client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    About 1/2 my nightly avg.

    How much does the average Hispanic client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    About 1/6 my nightly average.

    How much does the average Asian client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    2/3 my nightly average.

    EDITED TO ADD: For the above figures, do you feel your earnings are within the average for each section, or do you feel that certain races spend less or more than the average on you personally?

    I couldn't answer the question accurately. I think most customers spend more on me than on other dancers at my club.

    thanks!
    To answer your question--yeah, basically. Haha, I know, that's a dumb answer. I guess I'd say that I think money potential/money made is a decent way to help describe or define interaction in a club. (Decent enough for what is expected of me for this paper, anyway.) I mean, money is (nearly always) the whole reason we're interacting with them at all, yeah? It's late and I'm going to leave it at that for now, but I might add to this later.


    I really love that y'all are asking me these questions! It's a little intimidating but it's really helping me figure out my way through this assignment. Thank you!

    To make sense of this, remember that my club is a TINY dive bar, two dancers per shift and not many customers.

    Email address or preferred way to contact you if necessary (AIM, LJ, etc):
    PM me here for the moment. Within a week, [email protected] will be up.

    What is your age?
    21

    What is your race?
    Human. Okay, pasty-ass Jewish intellectual (white, if you like.)

    For how long have you danced?
    One month and a half.

    In which part of the country do you dance?
    West coast.

    Do you dance in a city, suburb, or rural area?
    City. Portland, Oregon.

    What is the racial makeup of dancers at your club? What about customers, in an average week? (example: 80% white, 15% black, 5% Asian)
    Dancers are all white, but there are only, like, nine of them! I'll estimate 87% white customers, 5% black, 5% asian, 3% hispanic.

    How much money do you earn on average per night (USD)?
    $80.

    What does the average customer spend per visit (USD)?
    $10 or $15.

    Is your club no contact, one-way contact, or two-way contact? (What is enforced, not the “official” rules.)
    No contact, but I brush against people's clothed bodies here and there, not with any real intention. I'm pretty sure that I'd be ousted if I shoved my tits in someone's face or gave a grinding lap dance, so it's definitely closer to "no contact" if those are the three options.

    What are your boundaries for acceptable client behavior?
    If someone rests a hand on my foot in a dance I won't say anything. A hug or a pat on the shoulder in the main bar area is fine. If I were working somewhere else, I'd probably have lower boundaries. I set my acceptability limits to how the rules are likely to be enforced when the rules are already better than my limits. I'm pretty sure I'd be OK with light to medium contact dances but no more. I don't WANT to do heavy contact/grinding dances.

    If you date men, what race do you tend to date?
    White usually, but that hasn't got to do with physical appearance -- I'm just a very geeky type and I date people from a similar cultural background. I've met men and women of other ethnicities who are in my category of preference, but only a few.


    Note: “client” in this survey refers to male clients only.



    How much does the average black client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    0-25
    How much does the average white client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    0-25
    How much does the average Hispanic client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?

    How much does the average Asian client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?

    Hard to say because all the other dancers in my club are white.

    also--sorry for the stodgy format for all this--I was going to code this as an actual survey to post on the web but wasn't able to do it. The answers are repetitive because I thought it would help me code faster if I didn't have to scroll a lot to maintain consistency.

    Default Re: *another* survey for a paper--but at least this one's by a stripper! *wink*

    What is your age? 36

    What is your race? white

    For how long have you danced? 7+ years

    In which part of the country do you dance? Pacific Northwest

    Do you dance in a city, suburb, or rural area? Yes, yes and yes

    What is the racial makeup of dancers at your club? What about customers, in an average week? (example: 80% white, 15% black, 5% Asian)
    Dancers: 90% white, 5% hispanic, 5% asian or black
    customers: 60% white, 20% hispanic, 15% asian, 5%black

    How much money do you earn on average per night (USD)? $350

    What does the average customer spend per visit (USD)? $75

    Is your club no contact, one-way contact, or two-way contact? (What is enforced, not the “official” rules.)
    No contact in Oregon, one way contact in other locations. Ocassional two way contact in more rural locations

    What are your boundaries for acceptable client behavior?

    I do not wish the customer to lick me or share other bodily fluids with me. If he tends to have a "hair trigger" I would perfer that he wear a condom. I prefer that the customers be very gentle when touching, and limit touching to areas that aren't covered by a swimsuit (no breast or genital touching).

    If you date men, what race do you tend to date? Mostly white, ocasionaly asian

    Note: “client” in this survey refers to male clients only.



    How much does the average black client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    0-25

    How much does the average white client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?
    75-100

    How much does the average Hispanic client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?

    75-100

    How much does the average Asian client spend (USD) during a visit to your club?

    150+

    EDITED TO ADD: For the above figures, do you feel your earnings are within the average for each section, or do you feel that certain races spend less or more than the average on you personally?
    I am not popular with black customers. I however have rarely seen a black customer spend much in the clubs. I personally make a lot of my income from hispanic and asian customers. A lot of the dancers I work with are worried about the language barrier, but I somehow muddle through.

    5, but I have danced for very few black customers in my career. I am usually turned down when approaching a black customer.

    9, I am usually comfortable. There are those guys that will make my skin crawl occasionally, though.

    5, I am usually nervous approaching hispanic customers because I am afraid that the language barrier will cause a money miscomuncation. I still always approach, as so few other dancers will talk to them, so I make more money.

    10 I feel very comfortable dancing for asian men. I feel like asian men are just as perverted as any other race, but I worry less about attracting an asian psycho then I do with hispanics or whites.
