Why do I strip? Dancer posts pic of the cash she makes in just ONE shift (and it's more than some people make in a month)

A stripper has published a photo of the money she makes in a single night as a response to the people who ask her why she does what she does for a living.

The image shows approximately $3,345 in mixed bills, as calculated by commenters, meaning that just three shifts a month would see her earn $120,000 a year in tips alone.

The thread onRedditwas captioned: 'From now on when people ask me why I’m a stripper, I’m just going to show them this picture (one day of work).'


Financial statement: A stripper has published a photo of the money she makes in a single shift as a response to the people who ask her why she does what she does for a living


The user, Menagerii, who says stripping is paying her way through an engineering degree at 'one of the most prestigious public tech schools in the U.S.', admits that this particular shift was a double, lasting from 11.30am until 3.30am, and that it is 'way more' than she usually makes.

'I typically make between $500 and $1,500 a night,' she says. 'Luckily that day I didn't have to dance much. I probably only did about 30 or so table dances and five stage sets.'
'I can skip out for three or four months straight and come back no questions asked . . . As long as I didn't gain weight'
She says that another perk of the job is that it allows her plenty of free time as she can work as often or as little as she likes.

'I can skip out for three or four months straight and come back no questions asked . . . As long as I didn't gain weight,' she adds.

Several commenters expressed curiosity about the kind of cut the strip club takes and whether Menagerii pays taxes.

'I claim all! . . . Most! . . . Some . . . A little bit . . . Dammit, I pay taxes! [sic]' she wrote in response to the latter.

Not just a pretty face: Menagerii, says stripping is paying her way through an engineering degree


She explained that the strippers pay the club to work there, and a house fee is typically $45 plus 10per cent of tips.

'I worked two shifts that day so I paid $90 plus 10per cent,' she said, adding that she puts 90per cent of what she makes into a savings account.

She did have to field several critics though, who were vocal in their opinions about her choice of work and what her family might make of it.

But it seems there is no drama there. 'When I told my dad, he said he was fine with it as long as I didn't ask him for money, start doing drugs, or start hooking,' Menagerii said.

And to the user who called her a f***ing idiot because 'most eligible guys arne't [sic] gonna be interested in a used up stripper when they can find an equally (or more) attractive non-stripper,' she said that she has no shortage of eligible male attention.

'Since I've been working I've been proposed to twice, both by men that make over 6 figures a year,' Menagerii revealed. 'I'm actually currently dating a director for a very popular TV series . . . So I'm not sure where you got your information?'

A number of commenters admitted that they were jealous, with one even questioning how they might get into stripping too.

Menagerii replied that the commenter's stage fright and lack of skill would not be an issue, but 'you have to be in good shape, quick witted, confident, and have a pretty face. Everything else follows.'

Another user made their envy clear in a play on the MasterCard catchphrase, writing: 'Law textbooks: $400 a semester. Tuition: $40,000. Learning that at the top of my field, I can only barely make more per hour than a stripper: Priceless.'

How often do you see 2 dollar bills? And she gets 2 of them in one day? Something fishy there. We need get Alex Jones on the case.

That chick is either lying, lying, or lying. She aint making that much cash in a shift (she claimed it was 11am-3am) with the way she looks.

Hot? Sure. $3500 in one day hot? Pump the brakes.
I'm going to both agree and disagree with your post. I agree that her hotness alone isn't getting the job done, as evidenced by the lack of $1 (and $2) bills from her 5 stage dances.

Where I'm going to disagree with you is that she is hot enough to extract extra cash for extra services. I wouldn't give her $20 for a table dance, but I might give her "more for more."

What moron brags about the exact amount of their cash income (and includes pictures) on the internet? Oh right, a stripper.

The IRS got the internet, yo.

Think of guys like Ant. Totally possible.
Eh, if a rich dude is going to shell out that kind of money she is going to be fixture at his mansion a la Stetten.

Yeah, if she really did earn that kind of coin she is going to have more DNA on her than a receptionist involved in a sperm bank explosion.

She must be at a high profile club for starters. The typical place lunch rush I bet the girls are lucky to collect $10/hr in tips. Maybe if she's a Scores or Spearmint Rhino level stripper with high profile clientele she might clear that on a good night. But I agree, she doesn't look that great to wow the big spenders.

That's why porn chicks "feature dance" at clubs too. They get five figures out of the box* from the club; on top of tips.
* pun unintended, but just as funny

I agree. The troll that started the thread that spawned the story should have picked a hotter picture.

When I bounced at one of those clubs there were two types of girls... the ones paying for school and the others were biker chicks.

And of course the amount of tips would depend on the location... I visited a buddy who worked at this hole in the wall strip joint gah it was awful... one of the strippers was like 6 months pregnant...

Before they redesigned bills, a $2 could easily be mistaken for a $20 at the stage in a dimly lit strip club.

She's got to be giving handy-j's.

(local referfence) Even when Deliah's was a cash cow for strippers, not many were pulling down that kind of money (yes, know girls that used to work there).
Side note, I did actually know a girl who did it to pay for school, she runs a gallery now.

I'm amazed we don't have a better strip club where I live, what with all the pot money around here.

Here's a video our strip club made to try and get a reality show... I don't think these girls make that kind of money.

Might be NSFW (it's on Youtube though), so I put it in spoiler tags.

That's only a little over $200/hr. That's perfectly conceivable. She's definitely cute, and she's probably great at talking to people/talking them out of money. She even admitted that's not typical. Even the pizza guy makes a killing every once in a while.

She could be working a city strip club or a high volume area. my ex would drive to NYC or certain clubs in jersey and make $2000. Someone also mentioned something about singles. none of the girls keep those. they trade them with the club for large bills.

That awfulness is a prime example of the fakeness of "reality shows" that annoys me, and the skeeviness of strip clubs that disgusts me. Roll them together and you've got a perfect pile of shit.
