1. Christie’s Cabaret
The dirty deeds being done onstage at Christie’s and the even dirtier thoughts bouncing around the filthy minds of its clientele are about the only thing that’s unkempt about the original home of the local topless-oriented chain. While all three Christie’s around the Valley are famous for impeccably ritzy Vegas-like décor and amenities, the Phoenix location is larger and a bit more posh that the others. More than two-dozen kinds of premium bubbly are available via the club’s champagne service, while its private nooks are awash in Victorian-inspired furniture and velvet curtains, giving off a rarified upscale aura that provides and interesting contrast some of the licentious exploits of its dancers.
2. Bourbon Street Circus
Two things that are in absolute abundance at Bourbon Street: Top-shelf women and top-shelf liquor. The phrase “model quality” doesn’t even begin to describe the five-alarm hotties that make up this landmark CenPho topless club’s roster. It’s as if they stepped straight out of the pages of a Victoria’s Secret catalog. For those whose tastes tend towards blondes, they perform nightly, as do stunning redheads and statuesque brunettes. To help quench your dry mouth after your tounge has hit the floor, Tex Avery-style, have one of Bourbon’s barkeeps craft you a primo cocktail or two using its cache of high-end spirits. Just remember, not matter how much liquid courage in fueling your mojo the chances of landing these strippers digits are infinitesimal.
As with any type of lifestyle, different to our own instilled standards or cultural influences, so it is with populations worldwide regarding strip clubs! What is perceived as an art form, or entertainment in one country may not be accepted as such in another, but a question generally asked, is where freedom of choice and business opportunism meet?
The majority of people in this country do not associate a strip club with prostitution, which could be the result of the industry taking care to promote itself as offering entertainment value, instead of a sex related sector.

All stage sets are not created equal! What separates an amazing stage set from an average one is your ability to set yourself apart from the others, making your routine unique, memorable and thoroughly engaging from beginning to end. As I’ve said in a previous blog post, stripping is a much more competitive industry than it used to be. In addition to improving your customer service skills and a positive mindset, giving your set that creative edge may be just the thing to increase profits, make for more repeat customers, and more customers willing to throw in the extra cash for a lap dance. So, if you want to transform an average stage set into a truly profitable performance, consider incorporating costumes and props to stimulate your customers’ imaginations, as well as their wallets.
Most people in the stripping industry will ask themselves this question at one point or another. This isn’t to say that the two are mutually exclusive, but many people struggle to decide which sounds more appealing to them so I wanted to use my experience to offer some guidance on the subject.
I began working in the stripping industry in 2007 and since this time have stripped myself, made numerous close friends in the industry and currently run my own agency – Peach Strippers. It would be fair to say that this experience has taught me the ups and downs associated with both clubs and agencies.

I’ve been saying this since I started my Myspace blog in 2007: Stripping is NOT like it used to be. It is very competitive, and dancers are a completely disposable commodity to the mega-clubs in large cities. The combination of mainstream society glamourizing strip clubs as pop culture AND a difficult job market has huge measurable effects on the take home pay of the average stripper.
Recently I went to two strip clubs with a friend who had several hundred dollars of cash earmarked for lap dances. When we arrived to the establishments, we noticed two things: 1. A room full of guys who were staring at the stage with blank looks on their faces, NOT buying dances. 2. Twenty girls standing along the wall talking to each other with scowls on their faces.

Every stripper in town will tell you that summers are notoriously slow. Inevitably, the conversations in the dressing room then begin to revolve around traveling to another city to work. I’m sure you’ve heard, or participated in one of these conversations:
Barbie: This club sucks. I’m going to Vegas. I heard Suzie went to Vegas and made a grand every night she worked.
Brandi: Yeah, I talked to Suzy too, but I heard she only made a grand one night and the other two nights she barely made her house fee back. Vegas is so over-rated. But I heard Dallas was the new hot spot, lots of guys with oil money!
The first method is trial and error. Unlike chain restaurants, department stores, and even call centers…when you get hired as an exotic dancer, there is NO formal sales training. I remember when I was hired as a waitress at Cheesecake Factory. I had to sit through an entire week of training videos and classes that explained how to upsell appetizers, specials, and premium liquor so that a $40 check turned into a $100 check. In the strip club, you are just thrown right into the mix of things. If you have enough perseverance you will figure out what works, and what doesn’t work, and over time your stripper salary will increase. I know firsthand how frustrating it is to try to make money this way! Especially if you are impatient and want to make more money NOW!
