We asked our colleague Tessa to tell us more about herself, her work and experience in this industry. Tessa has transformed and sculptured her body tremendously, but it goes deeper than her appearance.
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. These interviews can also bring some value to dancers who are new to this way of living.
Listening to people is a skill. Let’s take good care of it.
Do you have any specific memory of weird clients?
Okay, so I’ve been having a lot of different weird guests wanting to drink my piss. It’s actually more common than you think, especially with the well-dressed businessmen with good carriers.
This one guest wanted me to torture him as well, when I squeezed his nipples through his shirt, blood came out. He told me it was because he’s just been to a violent dominatrix. That almost made me throw up.
What is the weirdest wish you have ever received from a client?
The weirdest wish is all the guys wanting to marry me, or rather, marry my alter ego. Guys love her and think she’s real and after ten minutes of talking to her, they’re ready to leave their wife and kids and willing to do anything for me. That is a weird wish, every guy wants to f*ck a stripper but no man can handle a relationship with one.
The biggest tip I ever got was 850 USD.
What is the most embarrassing song you have ever danced to?
Günter – You touch my tra la la la
What would you change in this industry if you had a chance?
I would love to see better working conditions and a fair balance percentage between dancers and club owners. Some clubs take as much as 80-90% and on top of that, they treat their dancers like shit.
If all the guests could have a shower and brush their teeth before entering any strip club, that would be great too!
Which country do you think is the best to work in from your experience?
The best country so far must be Australia. Good working conditions and generous guests with good manners is highly appreciated!
Do you have any fears and what would be the biggest one?
My fear according to work: Slip on my pleasers and break my bones. Once I got a stalker that, from the beginning was a guest. Wouldn’t like for that to happen again.
Biggest fear: Lose my earnings.
Your wildest dream?
My wildest dream would be to have a mute regular guest buying me VIP for the rest of my shift, ordering me food and massaging my back. If you’re out there somewhere please find me.
Can we ask you to give advice on 3 most important things for dancers who have just entered this industry?
- Go follow strippreneur on Instagram
- Don’t be afraid to leave at any time, you owe nothing to a club that’s treating you bad.
- If you’re a soft girl like me, stay away from the borderline dancers that are giving you their jealous looks while trying to ruin your work.
If you could leave only one advice to this world:
Would you suggest to work with an agency and what would you expect from them?
Working for an agency can be good in this business, it can save you some time. Also, there are clubs who do not accept random applications.
I expect my agency to make sure the club is keeping its promises. Since there’s no trade union for strippers the agency can function as an extra backup in case a club is trying to use the dancers or taking higher rates and percentage than agreed.
I also expect my agency to give a quick response in case of emergencies and to do follow-ups.
