‘Male Model’ sounds like a decent profession. Everyone knows that of all the male models, the one with the most extreme physique and talent will become a movie star or an underwear model.
A lot of people think it is easy to be an attractive male model. However, they don’t know what it takes to be a male stripper or male dancer on stage at a gentlemen’s club.
If you want to make money as a stripper, you first need to have the following:
1. Learn some skills and look good on stage.
A lot of people think they can just have a nice body and some moves, but you need to have some actual talent to put on a good show.
2. Be at least somewhat attractive.
Not everyone is an Abercrombie model, so don’t get your hopes up too high. Females who go to strip clubs tend to like guys with tattoos and piercings though, even if it’s not their cup of tea. Even the most average looking guy will make more money than the hottest girl there if he knows how to work his assets properly. You won’t make enough money however if you are grossly obese or underweight either.
After meeting the initial criteria for male strippers, you can expect anywhere from $40 to $100 per hour, depending on where you work at.
Most strip clubs make their dancers pay a weekly fee to work there. A lot of these fees are paid in house fees, which mean the cash you make goes directly to the club instead of to your pocket. You can expect anywhere from 3-5 nights a week with average tips of $50-100 dollars per night.
3. It’s a good idea to have another source of income.
Male strippers also need to know that most clubs will not offer full nudity services. Strip club rules vary from state to state, but in most cases they have a required distance that must be kept between the dancers and their customers. This means you can’t always touch people with your genitals or hands.
4. Dancing is a better option than stripping when it comes down to things.
Stripping gives you less time per night, fewer nights per week, and often costs more money for the same amount of work as being a dancer would. In addition, stripping is seen as more stressful by some people since dancers are expected to do all sorts of dances on stage while they perform.
One last thing, don’t get discouraged by bad reviews online about male stripping jobs being scams or prostitution. There are plenty of decent positions that will help build your portfolio and book photoshoots for magazines or runway shows, even if they aren’t paying that much in comparison to others in the industry. Just to have fun with it!
Keep all of this in mind and how to become a male stripper. Make sure to always research companies before signing up with any, and stay away from ones who charge an application fee or ‘audition’ fee for dancing positions which often lead to scams.
