Here Are Six Facts About the Stripping Industry, Courtesy of a Major Academic Study
The University of Leeds in England has been running a major survey on the stripping industry, and they just released a report with their initial findings. We pulled out the six best ones strictly for your intellectual fulfillment.
#1.) While 40.2% of strippers do it as their only job, the rest have a day job, too. And the most common one is... EDUCATION, at 14.2%. That's right... one in seven strippers are TEACHING YOUR CHILDREN.
#2.) Even though every time you get a lap dance it seems like the stripper talks about her kids, only 13.5% of strippers have children.
#3.) Only 9.5% of strippers are married. That's less than one out of 10.
#4.) The average stripper makes $379 per shift, and averages between three and five shifts per week. To do the math there, that means an average of $1,137 and $1,895 a week... or $59,124 to $98,540 a year before taxes and expenses.
#5.) Three-quarters of strippers said their job satisfaction is between seven and 10 on a scale of zero to 10. No stripper said it's between zero and two. The things that make them most satisfied are the hours, getting paid right away, and the money.
#6.) The things that strippers like the least are not knowing how much money they'll make, having to lie about their job, rude and abusive customers... and having lost all respect for men.
