Stripper’s salary – How much does a bar dancer earn?
Lots to talk about in this post. If you don’t know me, my name is Maria, welcome to my blog. I’ve been working in the porn industry for several years now, I got into it at a very young age and now I know all the ins and outs of the industry. I have worked a lot as a nude model, camgirl, actress or producer. I also happened todance in clubs and I know a lot of girlfriends who are still doing this job.
I have drawn on my own experience and that of my friends to write this article. I hope you enjoy it and I hope with all my heart that it helps you find your career path.
Our age idealizes money and success. Personally I don’t necessarily find this to be a bad thing. But let’s face it: a majority of young girls grow up in a society where money is very important. Misery and inequality have never been as pervasive in our societies as they are today. These young women hear aboutthe charm industry and erotic jobs and might be tempted by this adventure. I take these examples butdancing is a real job. You have to respect those who have the courage to leave their homes every night to be in the spotlight in front of a clamoring audience.
I know many girlfriends who are truly living the dream life. But let me tell you, easy money is not found in strip clubs. Like I said above, to make a lot of money in this business you’re going to have to work a lot. I’m here to tell you about the reality of the field and between the crazy figures that you can hear in bar discussions or even in TV shows… It’s enough to make you lose your head. Not to mention the interviews available on the internet of the local chick that nobody knows and who supposedly earns tens of thousands of euros a week and lives in a yacht, the truth is slightly different.
First of all, you need to understand that a stripper’s salary is extremely variable. Her pay will depend on a large number of factors. Taking into account the incomes of all my friends in the business and from my own experience, I can tell you thatthe average salary of a stripper is 3,000€ net per month. I personally find this question far too vague. It’s a bit like asking “what is the best country in the world?”. The answer will be different from person to person and depends on a lot of factors.
How do strippers get paid?
A stripper’s pay is mostly based on the behavior of the guys in the room, depending on their whim of the moment and their mood.
All in all, a stripper is not paid by the hour like a mundane job. Many of my girlfriends are actually self-employed, meaning they own their own business in their own name and pay a daily, monthly or yearly fee to practice at a particular establishment.
Now how does a stripper who dances in front of an audience that isn’t determined to be generous get paid? Can you imagine working for several hours on stage, moving your pretty body in front of all those guys but not paying you back the entrance fee due to lack of generosity from the audience? Disappointing, isn’t it? You would have been better off staying home… It’s a reality, there are some very quiet days where you won’t make much money. However, on busy evenings, you will be able to make up for it. It’s a special way of life and the fact that you won’t make a lot of money for several nights and thenhit the jackpot on a weekend shouldn’t scare you.
Of course, most shows work out well in general. Especially if you’ve selected your club well and the boss you work for. Also, there are several techniques to get very horny guys to open their wallets. But for that you have to know these methods and apply them. In fact, as in all jobs you have to train diligently to be successful. The basis of the job of stripper is:know how to persuade, know the human psychology, understand the functioning of emotions and male desire.
While you must take care of yourself and your body to perform this job, appearance and beauty (which is incidentally a subjective notion) is not a criterion for success. The important thing is to be confident, to know how to dance and turn up the heat. Finally, the human connection is very important. If you have a facility for bonding with strangers, then being a stripper could be for you.
Another point that surprises many people is that it’s not enough to know how to dance on a pole to earn a big salary in this business. Your paycheck is part of a whole, you’ll figure it all out as your career progresses. More than beauty and dancing skills, women with charisma and natural charm will be much more successful than one who is passionate about dancing and has been doing it since she was a child. In short, you don’t need to be highly educated or have degrees to do this job. It is also not necessary to take lapdances classes, I strongly advise you to do so but it is not mandatory. It’s up to you, if you don’t want to be ridiculous at your first show… Then take classes. You still need to have the basics though.
By being pleasant and smiling, you’ll get higher tips because the bar patrons will remember you well. That’s how you can start to get regulars at your shows. And these guys who are fans of you will be willing to give a lot of money to see you again.
At the end of the day, you may have a perfect body, beautiful curves, an angelic face and be an exceptional dancer. If the bar you work for doesn’t have a lot of people coming in, you won’t be able to make as much money as you want. Choosing the place is so important… It’s not something to be overlooked, you shouldn’t take the first job offer that comes your way. Analyze the club:
- What are the typical customers?
- Is the place well attended every day?
- How much do customers spend on average per night?
- Please ask the bar owner lots of questions!
Know that you have the balance of power in this kind of relationship. The owner of the establishment needs you, and good strippers are not running around. A dancer who works in a shabby, low-key bar will receive a very different salary than one who works for a famous local nightclub or a high-end gentleman’s club.
Beware of day contracts
Suppose you want to start the adventure and try the stripper profession. You find a nice bar that agrees to recruit you. The only condition: you will start by dancing in the afternoons only. If the owner of the establishment imposes this kind of constraints on you: run away. Girls, there is no money in the afternoon, everything happens in the evening. By working during the day, you are like an opening act in a show. People look at you, but wait impatiently for the artist they have come for. And the super stars are the ones who work in the evening and at night. Very few wealthy men frequent strip bars during the day, they are too busy working and prefer to take their minds off of work in the evening to relax.
You should negotiate a show on the weekend, preferably on Friday or Saturday. These are the best days for strippers. In some bars, you only have to work on weekends to earn an already very comfortable salary.
Remember that in general, working in low-end bars: it’s not worth it. Don’t waste your time working every day of the week when all you need to do is practice on weekends to live very comfortably. When you get recruited to a high-end club with a refined and luxurious atmosphere, your life will change dramatically.
Weekend parties are extremely lucrative. Some of my girlfriends can earn thousands of dollars in the space of a few hours of shows. These figures might seem surreal to you…. But with hard work and if you never give up, these are not unattainable goals, quite the contrary. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can earn the equivalent of a lawyer’s salary in one show. My friend Stormy (a successful porn actress in the US) makes a lot of money from stripping. Here is the main clause of the contract she signs with the bars: she earns 30 to 40% on all the entrance tickets of the club during her days of presence. Admission is charged at $34 per person. Now imagine that this bar has a capacity of 1,000 people and that 500 people are present at the party. Stormy would make $5,100 for a single show. Not bad, right?
In her case, her name sells and that’s what allows her to be able to make so much money easily.

Now that we’ve covered it all. That you know approximately how much a bar dancer earns and you have more information regarding this profession. Let’s talk about a second possibility, another alternative for the more shy girls or those who don’t want to expose themselves in front of many people in a closed room. I have told you many times that the choice of the club was very important to hope to be successful in this job. What if I told you that the best club in the world was your room? Surprising? Don’t you see where I’m going with this? Let me explain. These are strange times, 2024 has been a particularly emotional year. Covid-19 has unfortunately slapped all the performers, dancers and models around the world in the face. My stripper girlfriends have had all their contracts for this year cancelled due to the health crisis.
A lot of them have had to turn to digital jobs to keep practicing and be able to pay their rent. We’re going to talk about webcamming, specifically camgirl. It’s a profession I’ve practiced for many years, and I can only encourage you to go this route to make big money quickly without showing off to physical people like bar dancers do. If you have clicked and read this article, then you are probably interested inthe X and charm industry.
Don’t miss this opportunity and let me introduce you to the camgirl profession, which is still too little known in France. As I said, charisma, presence and friendliness are necessary qualities to become a stripper. A good dancer must know how to make her clients want to spend money and must understand male desire. Well, these are the same qualities that a camgirl must possess. I’m talking about something very serious, instead of becoming a stripper you should look into being an online model which could be a less energy consuming and more lucrative business.
In general, an experienced bar dancer will make a great camgirl. They are relatively the same jobs, except you can work from home when you work online. That’s personally what I liked about it. Being able to work from anywhere you can also travel when you want and work when you want, at the hours you want.
When talking about pay, you should know that the salary of a camgirl is equivalent to that of a stripper. I’d be inclined to say that an online model can make a lot more than a lapdancer, but it all depends on a lot of factors. It turns out that working as a camgirl has many advantages. One of them is the fact that you can work in some rich countries like Norway or Switzerland. This means that you can be in contact with a wealthy, affluent audience that is willing to give you big tips to please themselves.
You know how I recognize a camgirl who has experience with bars?
First of all, they’re usually really good dancers, athletic and sporty. But I also notice that these chicks dance to some good 80s rock songs. Don’t you see where I’m going with this? Yet it’s very clever of them and is actually a very advanced manipulation technique.
The cam site community is relatively old. They grew up listening to this kind of music and they associate this music genre with their wild youth. A good music and a pretty girl who dances excites them to the point. The regulars know how to recognize these experienced women and they won’t hesitate to send you big tips as a thank you.
Some newspaper articles estimate the salary of some camgirls to be more than 50.000€ per month. This may sound unrealistic and completely crazy to you and yet I can assure you that it is indeed the case. I myself know some girlfriends who earn that kind of salary every month. Many women have become millionaires by starting their professional careers as online models.
If you want to start your camgirl adventure, I highly recommend the Chaturbate site or the sexy streaming platform Livejasmin. These sites accumulate hundreds of millions of visits per month and have a large community that spend hundreds of thousands per day on the site. You can check out my ranking of the best cam sites to work.
This is a real opportunity that’s presented to you. It would be a shame not to take advantage of it and regret in a few years when this activity becomes fashionable. Try hosting a few shows and make up your own mind. I’m sure you won’t regret having made this choice and that you will thank me for having guided you towards the right path.
To conclude, how much does a stripper earn? I have gone into great detail in this article to tell you about the business of bar dancing in detail. It’s an industry that I know by heart, I am aware of all the workings, all the scams and all the good tips and I hope to be able to help as many women as possible to get into this industry of eroticism and charm that does not know the crisis. It’s one of the industries that has never been in the red and probably never will be. Pornography in general is an industry that weighs billions of euros per year. There is still a huge amount of room and you can take your piece of the pie too.
