As most of you already know, I’ve been an exotic dancer for four years now (if you didn’t know: surprise!) so, you can trust me when I tell you to avoid these three beauty products if you ever happen to become an exotic dancer:
Honestly, lots of men that come to the strip club to buy dances are married or have a girlfriend at home. Glitter is contagious and you will get denied loads more than usual if you wear it all over your body and face. Even if it’s just on your eyes, men will be worried to have a dance with you.
Never apply lotion right before work, even if you feel the lotion has dried– it has NOT. When you do floorwork on the stage, you will spread all of the lotion and make the surface incredibly slippery! This is dangerous for YOU and any girl that has to dance after you. If you know you have slipped up the stage, please be kind enough to notify the manager so they can properly mop it up. If you absolutely NEED lotion; pay the off-stage fee. In some clubs, you can get fired if the girl after you complains or even worse… FALLS.
Similar to the problem with glitter, men DO NOT want to go home to their women smelling like another female. A lot of men have asked to sniff me before they buy a dance from me. I know now why they ask this and I can immediately just say (without having to get sniffed) “I don’t wear perfume” and I am paid. Some might even be allergic or sensitive to perfume (like me!) so just take a shower everyday and wear some deodorant, you will smell fine.
