Entertainers (dancers) are often not actual employees of the club itself but allowed to perform as independent contractors for a predetermined house fee.
During each set of one or more songs, the current performer will dance on stage in exchange for tips.
As long as she can "sell" herself, she is capable of becoming an exotic dancer. By the 1980s, the pole dancing and highly-explicit imagery associated with today's performers was widely accepted and frequently portrayed in film, television, and theater.Modern Americanized forms of stripping minimize interaction by strippers with customers, reducing the importance of tease in the performance in favor of speed to undress (strip).Not every stripper will end a performance completely nude, though full nudity is common where not prohibited by law.This precarious employment is accepted because of the stigma associated with exotic dancing.Dancers use props such as make-up, clothing, costumes, and appealing fragrances to complete their character and maintain their "front." Strippers, when working, are most likely to be found at strip clubs.Aside from advertising for striptease services outside the club, an unknown percentage of strippers also work in other aspects of the sex industry.
