The Male Stripper Playbook

By Dave Dakota

The Male Stripper Industry is a booming industry. Anytime something booms, the imitators show up and ruin everything for the companies that do it right. The Original Male Strippers and their famous website handle has been around for almost 15 years. They are truly the best in the industry. Others have tried to duplicate their success, but have failed. These other companies are just in the business for a money grab. They rip off the dancers and rip of the customers. These other companies tell the ladies that there is minimum tip that they have to give. If you are booking a stripper, this is a definite warning sign that that company is a scam. The reason that these companies say that there is a minimum tip is because they are keeping the entire flat rate that you are paying for the male dancer. Companies like make a small commission off of their parties. That is why they are able to hire the best. They truly understand how this business works. Keep the customers and employees happy, and then everyone will make money. There have been companies that pop up where one guy runs the business from a cell phone and sends out any guy they could find. It is never quality. They only care about making a quick dollar. A good male stripper lets the money come to him. This is an industry that needs to understand their audience. Women do not like to be forced to give money. They have no problem tipping, but it has to be under their guidelines. They need to be wooed. I have found that a lot of these younger and untrained dancers do not understand this. The Exotic Dancers at seem to understand how to make their money as well as delivering for the ladies. This business is all about being a fantasy for these ladies. A fantasy doesn’t have his hand out. A fantasy is just that, a fantasy. When you give them what they want, they will give you what you want. The key to being a great male dancer is to listen, and ad-lip when necessary. Gauge your audience, and give them the show that “they” are looking for. Don’t just go in and do the same thing every time. You need to change up your performance based on the crowd. Too many guys do not understand this. Luckily there are still a few good ones out there who do.
