Educated, employed and respectable looking girls can take their clothes off for money too!
Breaking the stereotypes of the average stripper, young women between the ages of 18 and 26, who are mostly educated with professional day jobs, are getting naked and dancing for men in a roving New York City amateur strip club and earning up to $1,000 per night, according to The New York Post – and RadarOnline.com has the shocking details.
The Saint Venus Theater, which recruits “good girl” dancers through ads on Craigslist and reveals its nightly location on the club’s MySpace page, has been operating since 2009, providing New York City girls with a substantial supplemental income and men with the opportunity to watch and dance with naked girl next door types for a $50 entry fee and $20-a-song lap dance.
“You go to a regular strip club, and it’s like a f – – king factory,” says Josh (all patron and stripper names have been changed to protect their identity), a 24-year-old patron of the club who has been there 10 times since November.
“Those girls are there to make money . . . if you try to talk to them and not get a dance, they’ll say, ‘This guy is a waste of my time,’ in some weird foreign accent and walk away. The thing at Saint Venus is I could’ve gone to high school or college with any of these chicks.”
Many of the dancers, who hold college degrees and work during the day as everything from art gallery assistants to baby sitters, are enticed by the money.
“The art gallery doesn’t pay my bills,” says one of these girls, Christine, a 22-year-old who works full time Monday to Friday downtown.
Another girl, Lisa, also 22, who graduated from a top fashion company and works unpaid at a start-up says it enables her to go shopping.
“I just want to have more money,” she reveals. “I want to go shopping.”
She also admits that she has always been intrigued by the industry.
“I’ve always been interested in the sex-worker industry,” she adds. “I just had a feeling that this was something I was going to aspire to.”
Rob S., who started Saint Venus, claims he gets hundreds of submissions every day, but that there are requirements.
“To get a meeting with Rob S., a girl first must send her photo. She needs to be young, limber and have a fresh, untampered look (fake boobs and professional stripping experience are frowned upon),” The New York Post reports.
Some of the dancers even claim to get asked out on dates by customers.
“Most guys will ask me to see them outside the club,” says Lisa. “A lot of guys just open with that — ‘Why can’t I meet you outside of here?’
However, she doesn’t believe that finding love in the club is realistic.
“There are more and more good-looking guys every time. I swear. I don’t understand why they come,” she says. “They should be out meeting real girls.”
However, not all men are looking to fall in love with a stripper.
“If I’m going to a place that is objectifying women, I don’t really care what their day job is,” Linus, a 34-year-old commercial real estate professional says.
“Their job is to shake their ass for me.”
