Madz told us more about herself, her work and experience in this industry. Madz thinks that confidence is what makes you beautiful and we have to agree. We started to do this segment for a couple of reasons. We hope to bring awareness to some truths and misconceptions in this industry while getting to know our colleagues a little bit better.

 Do you have any specific memory of weird clients?

 When I first started to dance in this industry, there was this old man sitting at the bar. I went to talk to him and noticed he was playing with himself. Happens to the best of us. Once there was a client who asked

When I worked in Townsville, Australia, me and my twin sister were asked into the dungeon room. It was my first time doing bondage and he wanted me to wear big, long, dirty tight boots. I ran out of the back room and asked the girls if they had any. They pulled out these dirty dusty boots and asked me if I will clean them. I said no way and went back into the dungeon room. He licked them clean for me…

Biggest tip?

 When I worked in New Zealand, I had the most amazing regular. He booked me out every night for a month and one night he gave me a roll of cash. It had 1000 dollars in it!

What is the most embarrassing song you have ever danced to?

Lots (laughs). It’s getting hot in here so take off all your clothes!

What would you change in this industry if you had a chance?

The attitude of some girls. I’d let them know that we are all in this together. We need to support each other and be nicer to one another, especially the new girls.

Which country do you think is the best to work in from your experience?

 Australia by a lot.

Do you have any fears and what would be the biggest one?

 To grow old (laughs)

Your wildest dream?

 To travel through South America and check out all the Aztec and ancient monuments.

 Can we ask you to give advice on 3 most important things for dancers who have just entered this industry?

 Beautiful isn’t fake tits, it’s Confidence.

When you feel good on the inside it shines on the outside. Wear shoes that are comfortable, dress and underwear that are a size bigger so you aren’t bulging out.

If you could leave only one advice to this world:

 Be kind to people. Even the ones who are unkind to you. They need it the most.

Remember that everyone is insecure!

 What do you expect from an agency you are working with? What are the most important things in an agency for you personally?

 Agency should understand the dancer’s needs and really do a background check on the clubs they send to.

We asked our colleague Dalida to tell us more about herself, her work and experience in this industry. Dalida is a ball of energy and has had some unpleasant experience with club owners before. Our team started to do this segment for a couple of reasons. We hope to bring awareness to some truths and misconceptions in this industry while getting to know our colleagues a little bit better. Listening to people is a skill. Let’s take good care of it in this fast-moving world.

 Do you have any specific memory of weird clients?

Some clients can be really crazy… Sometimes they are asking me to fulfill their pervert fantasies. I remember one guy, who wanted me to wear latex and treat him like a dog. Once there was a customer, who wanted to kiss my feet and lick my high heels.

What is the weirdest wish form a client you have received?

It was in Norway. Costumer was from India wanted to take me to the hotel and pay me 15’000 euros for one night to have sex with him. I want to clarify that In my opinion, this particular guy from India didn’t have the money to pay me. He would at least buy me champagne or private dance. (Laughs)

Biggest tip?

I got a very generous tip from a Swedish guy, but I would like to not disclose a specific number. (Smiles)

It was a great day.

In some clubs, I tend to make a lot of money. In other clubs, there are times when I can make a minimum to pay my bills.  I think the worst month is just after Christmas from January till February. People don’t have money in that period of time.

 What is the most embarrassing song you have ever danced to?

I don’t remember exactly the title, but it was some orgasmic erotic song (Laughs)

What would you change in this industry if you had a chance?

In many clubs, the owners are not willing to pay on time or they cheat dancers out of their contract. Sometimes they do not respect dancers. This is where an agency comes in handy.

Also very often they want to find some reason to kick out the dancers from the club and give a ticket. Sometimes there is also a problem with accommodation: for example, the room has not been cleaned up after the previous dancers. Sometimes in the kitchen or bathroom, there is no heater during winter or even no warm or cold water…

In a perfect world, It’s better to work in a team, where everyone respects each other, where dancers can be happy, feel that they have their own space and are able to smile. Work should give dancers pleasure and satisfaction.

Which country do you think is the best to work in from your experience?

Dancers will usually tell you – Scandinavia, Austria, Ireland, England… But for me, it’s like a lottery.

 Do you have any fears and what would be the biggest one?

No fears, just a positive vibe!

Your wildest dream?

I would like to be a girlfriend of Tarzan. (Laughs)

 Can we ask you to give advice on 3 most important things for dancers who have just entered this industry?

  1. Smile
  2. Believe in Yourself
  3. Work hard and try to be active.

 If you could leave only one advice to this world:

I’m only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand.

We asked our colleague Eva to tell us more about herself, her work and experience in this industry. Eva has a lot of experience in this industry and even though from Europe, prefers the American system over Europian.

Our team started to do this segment for a couple of reasons. We hope to bring awareness to some truths and misconceptions in this industry while getting to know our colleagues a little bit better.

Listening to people is a skill.

 Do you have any specific memory of weird clients?

To tell you the truth, I think I have a sixth sense when someone who does not have good energy comes close to me. I always try to analyze people who want to have a conversation with me or vice versa, to know that he is a good person. I don’t want to have unpleasant surprises.

There always have been people who can give a good impression and later they are clients who have ways to make you feel bad. Luckily I have not lived risky and never had extremely bad experiences with clients in my place of work.

What is the weirdest wish form a client you have received?

(Laughs) A strange desire is something very difficult to catalog in my mind. For each person it is different. I always try to listen to their wishes within my limits of work, but it is true that for me, their wishes may sound strange, for them, that could be something magical. I never think that a client’s wishes may be strange desires in some way, just different desires.

Biggest tip?

The best tips I receive are always from my American fans. They know very well how to play the role of a client in a strip club. They love to wash dancers with dollars, and therefore my best Tips have always been from the American public.

What is the most embarrassing song you have ever danced to?

I can adapt to all kind of music because I am a professional dancer. All my years of Study dance, helps me to adapt to each type of music. In general, I choose the music before I dance, music that I have previously studied and I know the rhythm of the song perfectly. My advice as a professional is always to have your music prepared where you travel.

What would you change in this industry if you had a chance?

I would like the striptease industry in Europe to give a change to the American vision. Real strip clubs where dancers always receive thousands of dollars as a tip. Each show on the stage the clients will reward you with real money. They always do from my experience. The industry in Europe has a lot to learn from our American friends.

Which country do you think is the best to work in from your experience?

There are several systems depending on the country you travel, it also depends on what type of system the dancer feels better. I think it’s very complex, depending on many factors. I do not think I can answer very clearly because there are many countries that are good, knowing that the work system is very different between them.

 Do you have any fears and what would be the biggest one?

Yes, I have one fear … The day I will not be able to dance.

Your wildest dream?

I live my wildest dream every day!

 If you could leave only one advice to this world:

We are artists, we create the magic of eroticism. My advice is to always be a star that shines and always give place to other stars to shine with you.

Chiqui has started her career almost 17 years ago, is a part of East London Stripper Collective and has been featured in a book. She has done it all, dancing from low-end strip pubs in London to world-leading fetish and cabaret night clubs. Awarded Stripper of The Year and giving gay man erections.

Ladies and gentleman here is our interview with one and only – Chiqui Love

Do you have any specific memory of weird clients?

Yes, there was this guy that used to request dancers to play with their belly button for like 10 minutes straight. Another one was a businessman who used to get really turned on by showing us he was wearing a bra underneath his suit.

I must admit I love “weird” clients as they tend to be respectful and tip extra for their fetishes.

What is the weirdest wish form a client you have received?

I’m afraid I can’t remember anything particularly weird or maybe I have just normalized the weirdness too much! (Laughs)

Biggest tip?

There was this really generous and lovely man I met at the club who helped me finance my last year at University. He used to send me a monthly check and he asked for nothing in return, not even private dances. I will be forever grateful to him for this. He used to help other dancers too. Unfortunately, he eventually got married and we all lost our own stripper version of a Saint. (Smiles)

 Your ideal client?

My ideal client understands that this is how we provide for ourselves, so he doesn’t push your boundaries, does not waste your time, is respectful towards you and tips generously. If he can actually hold an interesting conversation and is funny then extra bonus points to him.

What is the most embarrassing song you have ever danced to?

I had to do a private dance to the Titanic song (My heart will go on by Celine Dion) as we had to private dance to whatever the dancer on the stage was dancing to and some of them had a terrible taste in music! But what I did was I played with the words and when the song went  “near” I put my butt near the dude’s face then the song went  “far” I just put my butt away from him, this followed by “wherever you are” I moved my butt in circular motions and the guy and me just ended up laughing. (Smiles)

What would you change in this industry if you had a chance?

There are a few things I would love to change, as I think the way the world is moving and how we are expressing our sexuality is changing. Also how feminism, politics and sex-related job working rights are becoming more important to me every single day.

First of all, I tend to see a lack of real communication between dancers and management and this tends to lead to a lot of confusion and frustration for both sides. I believe in working together and creating an environment where making suggestions and having healthy and productive conversations about what’s best for the business is what really will make it successful. Dancers aren’t treated as valuable assets for their business on many occasions. I have seen places that fine dancers for not wearing the right jewelry, didn’t even provide a proper changing room so they had to leave their belongings and get change on their public toilets, places where you felt unsafe and management taking advantage of the situation many of these women are in, so I would love to see places with fair working conditions and respectful towards their performers.

I would also love to see more queer spaces too, more mixed venues with a male, female and non-binary performers and more creativity in expressing sensuality with proper stage shows.

 Which country do you think is the best to work in from your experience?

Australia has been the best so far, but I worked there a long time ago so not sure if still is the same. The club I worked in Brisbane had these hostesses that would help you with the talking bit for you to get private dance which made it a lot easier as sometimes guys don’t want to break the “fantasy”, they also provided us with an electronic key that gave us access to a gym, sun beds, a really nice shower room, a kitchen, electronic lockers and toilets just for the dancers.

Another one in Sydney used to bring a big tray of cheese and fruit to our changing room so we would have something to snack on during the long shifts, little details that made you feel valued and looked after.

How do you prepare for a shift?

I listen to my favorite radio program and music whilst doing my hair and make-up to put me in the mood and also a nice cup of English tea before I leave my house to wake me up a little. (Smiles)

 Do you have any fears and what would be the biggest one?

Getting injured! as if I injure myself I can’t work!

Your wildest dream?

For strippers to be seen as just another job so for things such as renting apartments, applying for “normal” jobs, writing your resume or even talking to most “regular” people wouldn’t have to require editing who I am or hiding my truth, as I am proud of what I do and have met some of the most intelligent, empathetic, strong and interesting women through this industry.

 Can we ask you to give advice on 3 most important things for dancers who have just entered this industry?

Focus, have a goal and go for it, be smart with your money.

Take breaks when necessary as it could be mentally and physically draining.

Work together and built each other up, working together creates a good working environment, gives you a support group and increases your earnings.

 Advice for new dancers how to overcome fear and stress?

Tequila! (Laughs)

 If you could leave only one advice to this world:

Be kind always, we all have struggles, be kind to yourself too. (Smiles)

 What do you expect from an agency you are working with? What are the most important things in an agency for you personally?

Support if something does not go as expected and advice if needed.

Good communication with us and club owners.

Good research on the venues and accommodations they will be sending performers to, such as making sure the venues provide safe spaces, clean and apt accommodation, fair working conditions.

We asked our colleague Amber to tell us more about herself, her work and experience in this industry. Amber delivered in her playful and interesting manner.

Our team decided to start this segment for several reasons. We kind of hope that this could break some of the stigmas that come with this job and industry itself. We want to know our colleagues a little better. We also just love to hear some funny and entertaining stories. This might entertain some of you as well. Enjoy.

 

Do you have any specific memory of weird clients?

After a few years in this business, I’m not sure what’s weird anymore. I had a few weird situations, like someone asking me about the toppings on the pizza I had had mid lapdance, A tiny guy (the stag from that day’s bachelor party) in a Peter Pan costume who made me promise to never forget them (as you can see I didn’t), or the guy proudly showing me pictures of his Thai ladyboy lover on his phone last week. That was pretty weird. I try not to judge. Being weird doesn’t mean someone is an asshole. Being an asshole does.

What is the weirdest wish form a client you have received?

Not an actual wish (most of them kinda wish to fuck you in some way or the other), but one time, a client I was talking to in the club started grinning mischievously and asked me to reach in his pocket. Skeptically (and not being a naive idiot), I refused. Finally, he couldn’t stand it any longer, reached into his jeans pocket and pulled out a white lacy bra.

Turns out, he had stolen it from a girl at the OTHER strip club in town earlier that evening (there were only 2 clubs in town), only to now proudly show his trophy to the strippers in our club, hoping for admiration. We took it away from him. Don’t steal stripper’s clothes. We paid good money for it and do you have ANY idea how hard it can be to find lingerie that looks good, is easily removable AND allows us to do pole tricks without boobs or flaps slipping out OR being too tight/uncomfortable?

Biggest tip?

So far 500 Swiss francs.

What is the most embarrassing song you have ever danced to?

I would walk 500 miles – The Proclaimers

What would you change in this industry if you had a chance?

It depends on the country you work in. In general, club managers providing a safe place for their girls to work at by setting up rules and maintaining them while making sure your girls are happy and treating them as fair as possible. House fees suck but some clubs have better systems than others. In my opinion, clubs that focus on champagne sales instead of selling table/lapdances are the hardest place to work at and stay sane/motivated so I would like to change that.

Which country do you think is the best to work in from your experience?

 New Zealand and Australia

Do you have any fears and what would be the biggest one?

Clubs shutting down because people cannot tell the difference between forced sex work/traffic and sex workers who like their job and provide services that a lot of people enjoy. Also, losing a leg and trying to find work as the one-legged stripper would suck.

Your wildest dream?

 Someone whose kink it is to throw all their money at me while I nap in the VIP room.

If you could leave only one advice to this world:

 Be nice and be honest about what you like and don’t like. We are all humans.
