How to sell a lap dance

How to sell VIP Rooms – Racks to Riches

A few years back I had a colleague ask me this, and it kind of blew my mind.

Because her stage performances were awesome, she was super friendly, and stunning.

But she was still struggling in this area.

Why were customers still holding off on staying in VIP rooms with her for multiple hours? 

Well, it’s because they’re different skillsets!

Your presentation, your stage skills, and your communication skills are all different ways you can make income..

And being great at one isn’t a guarantee you’ll be great at the other!

Now, I don’t want to be mistaken for braggadocious...because a stage performer I am NOT. And while my work look is put together, I am not the most stylish person in my everyday life. 

However, getting customers to VIP is something I’ve had a lot of practice doing and I seek out clubs where this is the primary skillset on display. 

And while there are tons of ways to get it right, if this is a stopping point in your income at the club, here are some tips that may help you get more wins on the floor:

Identify what you’re selling

What is it that your customers get for their money? 

And don’t tell me “a fun time” or “a dance” or “more privacy.

Sure, that’s what he gets.  But he can also get that with any other dancer at your club.


I mean what does he get when he buys from YOU?


What’s the unique experience you’re selling?

What can you do with one hour...much less 5 hours together?

And by the way, what can you do with that time within your boundaries


If you can answer that question clearly for yourself, you’re going to get a lot more mileage out of VIP.  

And if you can’t yet answer this question, I encourage you to take advantage of my FREE list of 50 Ideas for Things to Do In VIP here.

While having plenty of ideas is great, the good news is you only need to do 2-3 things really well to DRASTICALLY improve your VIP sales and renewals.

So, what is it that you’re selling? 

Before you sell it, buy it yourself

I know, I know, cheesy.

But it’s true! 

You will get pushback, and objections, and rejection, and doubt

And if you can’t overcome them, you can’t make the sale! 

So, when I say buy it yourself, I don’t just mean believing in yourself, or affirming yourself, or hyping yourself up (which are all good too, by the way).  

What I mean by “buy it yourself” is to start practicing your responses to all the common objections and excuses customers will give you not to spend.

Show up completely sold on what you’re selling and ready to answer their questions.

You must be ready to tell them why they should buy and be confident that what you’re offering is exactly what they need in their life.

Which, by the way, means you’ll need to... 

Change up your lines

Do you know what every customer hears, multiple times every night?


After a while, you’re going to sound like a broken record to your customer... 

Like every other entertainer that has approached them.

Like a big blog of text that blends into the rest of their day.

Like something that won’t capture their attention or make them change their course of action.

If you want your customers to pay attention to you, pay attention to what you say.

From your first approach to your closing lines, you have so many options to upsell and connect with your customers!

Give your customers a reason to buy from you by stepping up your lines. 

By the way, if this sounds like a lot of work, consider... 

Not Preparing is MORE work

Getting thrown off your game by easy objections (like “it costs too much!”, “what happens in the back?”) is WORK.

Missing out on great tips because you’re not sure about how to ask is WORK.

And walking through the room again and again because you think can only connect with 1 or 2 customers in the room (while missing out on all the other ones) is a ton of work!

Instead of avoiding work or settling for less, the last tip I’ll drop here is…

Face the music

Every single customer will tell you no. 

There will be no perfect customer.

Even the best customer will have a spending limit and a time they leave the club.

And the worst thing a terrible customer can pay you is $0.  

Most customers you interact with may pay you $0, but it’s not about them! They are only extras in your story.

Your goal is to find supporting characters that will be happy to pay for the privilege of your time and company.

And you will find them so much faster once you stop being afraid of rejection

The single best way to find more customers, to learn more lessons, and to earn more income, is to get excited about rejection! Yes - EXCITED! 

I promise you that rejection is something you can train your brain to love.

And once you do, you’re going to see better results.

How to Sell VIP Rooms — bohemian writings

Hi strippies! Now that Christmas is around the corner, it got me thinking about what was the easiest way to make money during the holidays? Disclaimer: the holidays can be a tricky time to work. Regulars are out of town, the club is slow because of crappy weather, many clients don’t have $ as they have spent it on their family’s presents. All of these things make it a little harder to earn money. But no worries I have a solution for you: Sell VIP rooms

            There is literally nothing I loved at work more than seeing the club all decorated for Christmas, ordering a white Russian and getting cozy for hours in a VIP room (with a respectable gentleman of course). You clicked because you’re asking me HOW? How do you even sell a VIP room? What does the upsell promise? How can I make the offer irresistible without having to do things I don’t want to?

            All of these questions will be answered in this post. It’s a little longer so settle in. This is going to help you make money after all so it’s worth the read. 


Scenario 1: You’re sitting with a client on the floor. He’s bought a few dances and seems interested. You’re talking up a storm. You see him eye the velvet ropes. How do you get him to justify the $$$$ price tag. First tip, ask while you are doing a dance. I cannot stress this enough. If he has a boner and thinks this is fun, he doesn’t want to keep getting dances while being watched. He wants you all to himself in a place that he can focus. You are going to lean into his body and whisper in his ear something like this: “You want to go somewhere we can be alone?” 

Boom. That’s it. He’ll say maybe or sure. Then this is where you sell him. “I can get the club to discount $X” or “It’s only $$.” “We can stay there all night!” “It’s so nice.” “Let’s go check it out.” Literally keep in simple. DO NOT allude to doing any extras, if he asks just say, “Trust me, you’re going to have a great time.” DO NOT say please. This is vital. The second you say please you have lost the upper hand. 

            Then get up. He will follow if he’s at all curious. If he doesn’t collect your cash and move on to the next one. This is where timing is everything make sure you’ve at least done $60-100 worth of dances before the upsell that way you aren’t wasting your time (Hey you still made money off his broke ass).  

            Now sometimes you’ll get back there and they will chicken out. Just say you’ll give him time to think about it and move on. The goal tonight is to sell a room. Not do dance for dance on the floor. 


Scenario 2: This one is for later in the night. When people (maybe you) are tipsy, bold and into making questionable decisions. You’re on stage, and he comes up and tips you $20 or $50. HEY time for the fucking upsell. Get into his ear, point to VIP room. “Meet me back there, say you’re waiting for Cali” (You should have a code like this for the managers to know that he’s your upsell). Of course, he wants the clearance to go back there for free (or so he thinks). After you get off stage go find him. Sit him down, look like a fucking star and say, “We can stay back here for $X for X time.” For this guy go with the cheapest option first. He’s already back there so the hard part is done. Rarely once they are behind that velvet rope do they want to come back out. Unless they are broke – move on. 


Scenario 3: Group of dudes comes in. Maybe like 3 or 4. They are spending alright. The guy you are sitting with buys some dances and a drink. They are ordering shots. You have found other girls to sit with the friends. We are not just going to sit out on the floor doing all the work. “Hey guys, you know we can save money on booze and have more fun back there.” “Let’s get a bottle! We can sit in VIP too!” In this scenario, tell the guy you are sitting with you can get the bottle discounted and you’ll charge by the hour ($100-$200 an hour is a good start) for unlimited dances. Unlimited dances and bottle service duh, of course he wants that. Now before you’re like wait, I don’t want to just make $100 for unlimited dances, are you high? Trust me, you aren’t going to be dancing that much. He’s going to be too busy pretending he’s Kanye with his friends. You’re going to be tipping stage, making in rain. Laughing it up and getting drunk. This is a good time table but do not camp out here. Get paid for 2 hours up front. Then get on stage. Stage rotation will burn at least 30 minutes. Find your next customer. Go back and they will already be plastered. The two hours are almost up and maybe they have even found another girl to take your place (perfect). The bottle is gone and you’re on to the next one. 


Scenario 4: This is the big spender. This is where you will upsell the fuck out of him. He’s sitting by himself. Lonely and maybe a little bit bored. He’s just waiting for you to cheer him the fuck up. You do not dance for him on the floor. You just talk. Maybe like 30 minutes and go three-deep with each thing you ask him. (I’ll explain this in another post). You’re starting to get him to open up but it’s so loud! “Let’s go somewhere it’s quiet.” Point to the back, take his hand and lead him back there. Don’t discuss price, the manager is going to do that for you.

This is all about the service. He wants to be taken care of. He wants to talk to you more. Lead him back there. One of my favorite managers would come up with a wine list. Recommend a bottle and leave. A cocktail waitress would come collect the credit card and leave. Then the VIP service would begin. Get into his ear more. Rub his hands and forearms. Relax him. Who knows what he ordered or what it costs. If he hasn’t asked you, he doesn’t give a shit. The bottle comes out. You are already on his lap laughing. Now depending on where you work, there might be minimum per hour for this type of guy. It usually ranges $300-500 an hour. I would spend the night cozy back there and then charge something like 40 dances on funny money. He can’t do the math that fast. 40 dances in 4 hours sounds about right. (It’s $800 btw). Make sure he’s getting scotch or something rich people drink to accompany the champs. You want him buzzed. Don’t do any extras, if he asks, say “that’s for next time” and make him a regular. 


Whew! I told you it was long. But totally worth it. Now you have some of my tried and true secrets to sell VIP rooms. Anywhere from the group of dudes to the loner, try these tricks and you will sell more rooms.

If you get resistance just bail. There are so many other guys who don’t mind the upsell. Remember you’re not just selling dances, you’re selling an experience that these guys wish they could have every day. Try whenever possible to get paid up front or at least in increments. Each client is different so some may just start handing out hundreds. If you don’t want to do extras make sure to draw the line. You are the boss. If they get too handsy, go to the bathroom or dressing room, get on stage, bring another girl buffer or even just get the manager. (I have only had a handful of scenarios where the guy is just looking for extras. Just get out and he can find someone else – unless you don’t mind). If the night is going great though, make sure to skip stage entirely, tell the DJ to fuck off, you are in VIP.  

            Try not to get too drunk with them. They are getting drunk, you are providing a service, a VIP service. You should have a favorite VIP waitress that works with you. Managers should know your codes and how you work. This is a team effort where everyone wins. At the end of the night you can walk back to the dressing room where the other girls jealously look at your wad of cash, asking where you’ve been all night.

How I danced in a strip club

When 23-year-old Anastasia was writing her thesis in psychology at the Higher School of Economics, she got a job at a strip club for several weeks for her research and worked there under an assumed name - all dancers usually do. Anastasia told Kholod about how the club lives, what its hierarchy is based on, and how a person's beliefs change under the influence of the environment. During the study, Anastasia also ran a telegram channel in which she shared her impressions and observations with subscribers.

In order not to miss the main materials of Kholod, subscribe to our instagram and telegram.

Post in the telegram channel: “After private, the guest dodged and licked the clitoris. She convulsively recalled STDs transmitted by oral-genital, pouring a can of chlorhexidine on herself ...»

Working in a club is not only exciting, but also scary. Strangers, opaque rules. Your control over the situation is limited. You don’t always feel safe, and even less often you feel comfortable. All this affects the mood. In the morning you are euphoric from adrenaline, and in the evening you sob, imagining how your half-naked photos will appear on the net from somewhere.

You feel that the guests are interested in your body, and sometimes they show this interest in rather vulgar forms. Before striptease, I was a little skeptical about the word "objectification". In my familiar environment, it is sometimes abused. If one person likes the body of another, then this can already be called objectification. It seems to me that because of this, the perception of the term in society has been distorted. But in the club you start to feel what it really means.

Field work

Telegram channel entry: “…I am sick of directive systems, and at the same time they are of research interest. After school, I decided that if I didn’t enter a university, I would go to the army or a monastery for a year.”

Ever since my first year, I have been drawn to field research. In my telegram channel, I even jokingly called myself a gonzo psychologist.

As a student, I studied how people's beliefs change under social pressure. Usually a person has a set of beliefs: what to do is normal and what is not, who he is and where he belongs in the world. In many ways, these beliefs are associated with the norms of the environment. If a person enters a new environment and becomes involved in activities that conflict with their old beliefs, they may feel bad.

At the same time, people tend to think well of themselves. And if a person finds himself in a situation of contradiction, then he needs to change either his activity or his beliefs - to “reflash” them. For example, start thinking that he is doing everything right, and if everyone around him thinks otherwise, they are wrong.

I had a theoretical model of how this happens, and for scientific work this model had to be supplemented with data. I needed interviews of people who started to do something that others condemn. And in order to find an appropriate group of respondents, I decided to work in a strip club.

For social researchers, work "in the field" is a way out into the "natural habitat" of the group they are researching. For example, if a person studies folklore, he goes to the village and talks to grandmothers. If you research the rules of certain factions, you join one of them.

Such work involves risks. First, if you join a group that has difficulties, you will have the same difficulties that they have. Secondly, when you go "to the field", you do not know in advance how people will react to the presence of the researcher.

“Only one rehearsal”

Telegram channel entry: “Dancers are hired all the time. They take it without much casting - they give a questionnaire and immediately invite you to training with a choreographer.

I looked for vacancies for dancers on club websites. After one of the responses, I was called for an interview, where they asked several times: “Do you understand what striptease is?” It felt like I had to prove that I really wanted to dance it.

Later I found out that most often girls who dance striptease initially come for other vacancies. Some do not even know that they came to work in a strip club. It goes something like this: a girl needs money, she is trying to get a job as a hostess or a waitress. The manager explains that these positions are already closed or they are looking for more experienced employees. Then he says that there is a vacancy for a dancer: “Do you want to go to a rehearsal with a choreographer?” They explain to the girl that this is only one rehearsal - just to try, it is not necessary to continue to become a dancer.

Then they ask her: “Will you stay for the opening of the shift? Just to see how this work is arranged. Then they offer to work one shift - what if you like it? By this time, the girl is already familiar with the choreographer and with other dancers, they are all friendly. The girl sees that for them this work is quite normal. And her attitude is also changing.

Among my respondents there were girls who just started dancing striptease in this way, although earlier they were sure that nothing like this would ever happen in their lives.

“You should be paid for”

Telegram channel entry: “I hang out remembering my real name when I meet outside the club.”

There is an opinion that only tall girls with ideal parameters and dance training are taken to striptease. In fact, dancers can look different, and it is not necessary to be able to move well to the music. Beginners are taught the simplest penetrations and basic movements. The hardest part is not falling off the strips. After the first shifts, everyone usually walks with broken knees, then they gradually get used to it.

During the shift, the dancer spends only some time on the stage, but the main part of her work is communication with guests. By the way, it turned out that visitors should be called that way. You can't say "customers" about them. They explained to me that “clients are with prostitutes,” and striptease is a completely different matter. I wanted to add that psychologists also have clients, but I restrained myself.

During the first shift, other dancers came up to meet and support. The manager told the newcomers to drink a cocktail so that it would not be scary. The first couple of hours I had anxiety, but then I got used to communicating with the guests, and it became easier. I looked at experienced girls and tried to repeat what they did.

The club is first and foremost a business, and it has a corresponding ideology. Something like "know your worth, you should be paid for." Before the shift, managers go on stage and remind the dancers that their main task is to sell, to earn money. Get guests to buy private dances. To do this, you always need to look attractive. I was once remarked for an unfortunate position on the couch: "A woman should sit so that every man wants her."

Imitation sex

Telegram channel entry: “Communication with pleasant guests is like a mini relationship: from the first sympathy to the ending with a desire to prolong.”

Sales occur through communication with guests. The girl approaches the visitor, starts a conversation, and during it offers a private dance from a special "Crazy Menu". Experienced girls know how to classify guests according to needs and character, and this helps them to properly conduct a conversation so that the sale takes place. For example, someone loves attention, and someone wants to brag to his friends about how easily he spends money. There are people who cannot refuse a girl, and there are those who are so drunk that they simply do not understand what they are doing and how much they pay for it.

Private dances take place in a specially designated room behind a screen. The girl, completely naked, dances on the guest's lap. Some managers call this "imitation sex." On the first shift, it turned out that I was alone with a very drunk person. He wasn't quite in control and tried to pet me. I had to remove his hands and explain that what was happening was a show, and not a sexual contact.

I tried to discuss what had happened with the manager, but he said that "light penetration" was not forbidden and that if this happened, then I could not offer the guest something more interesting than my "dumpling". He recommended learning to "switch the attention" of visitors during the dance and hinted that a disgruntled guest is not good.

Many things that happen in a club, such as this one, would be treated as abuse in my usual environment. But there they are treated calmly. The club sets its own coordinate system, and the equanimity of some employees reinforces the equanimity of others. People tend to strive to be conformable. This makes it easier to adapt to the environment where they find themselves. And what previously seemed impossible is beginning to be perceived as normal and even natural.

Authoritative figure

Telegram channel entry: “I decided not to stand out. I filter my speech from academic slang, smile sweetly and are accommodating with management. In the end, everyone goes to discuss me. It turned out that no one does three privates per evening on the first shift.

There are several dozen dancers in the club, and they are friends in groups that are often opposed to each other. For example, experienced employees usually do not communicate with newcomers.

The institution has a rating of dancers, which is built depending on their sales. In the top are those who bring in more revenue. They are set as an example to the rest, they receive bonuses from the club: for example, they are allowed to take fewer shifts than others, or not go to a shift and avoid a fine. The rest of the girls can't do that: if they don't show up for work, they have to arrange a replacement with someone. Among newcomers, it is customary to condemn top employees - supposedly they are very proud of themselves and beat off guests from less experienced colleagues.

The proceeds from sales from the Crazy Menu are shared by the girls in half with the club. When an employee dances a lap dance, she must note the time. If the dance does not end on time, the guest must pay for the delay. If the guest refuses to pay and the girl cannot convince him in any way, she must pay the full cost of the dance to the club.

There is a noticeable distance between managers and dancers. It is customary to call managers by their first and middle names, but they themselves address the girls with “you”. It is perfectly normal for them to yell at an employee or make dancers sit for several hours and wait for pay for a shift.

Managers are obeyed, feared and respected. I don't think it's just about fines. It's just that societies with a pronounced hierarchy are usually arranged in such a way: there is an authoritative figure, and there are those who obey her. Once in a certain role, a person begins to act out it.


Telegram channel entry: “Three times the guests offered to leave. When asked if many agree to paid sex, a more experienced colleague assured “almost everyone.”

Officially, sex with guests is prohibited in the club. Employees, comparing the institution with competitors, say: “But in such and such a club there are special rooms for sex. But we are not!” But at the same time as the ban, there is a practice of "buyouts". The guest can negotiate with the girl and pay the club a certain amount to release her from her shift. Then they leave - and the club administration does not care how their rest of the night passes.

In fact, this can be regarded as the sale of sex services. The girls themselves do not hide from each other that most often, when they are “redeemed”, they go to have sex with guests. But at the same time, the institution disclaims responsibility for organizing prostitution.

I remember during one of my first privates I did a dance with another girl. The guest was drunk, I obviously liked him. The second girl said to him: "Let's leave?". He pointed to me: “Will she go too?” I said “no”, but another dancer began to wink at me: “He will go, he will go.” I felt pressure: the girl seemed to let me know that I was giving the wrong answer to the question.

Later, she took me aside and explained: I had to tell the guest that I would go with him so that he would continue to spend money. And then give up at the last moment. I thanked him for the explanation, but just in case, I didn't come back to that table that evening.

Other girls told me that if you don't want to leave with a guest, you should offer him another dancer instead of yourself: if you don't want to earn money yourself, help others.

"I'm in the house"

Telegram channel entry: "In a specially designed environment, potentially traumatic events are perceived as the norm."

In words, the guests treat the girls kindly. A man can often tell a dancer that she is too good for the place. You need to change your mind, quit, find another job. This is seen as benevolent pressure: a person, as it were, is trying to help, but in fact he says that you are doing something wrong, unworthy.

There is such a thing as a research position. You are supposed to be in this position when doing field research. Whatever environment you find yourself in, you remember who you are and what you are doing here. Remember your identity, you can set boundaries. You do not feel like a part of the environment, but you observe it. This is an attitude that helps you not to break down in an unusual environment, not to start associating yourself with it. As in childhood, when you can run aside and shout: "I'm in the house."

But this setting can be blurred. The further I went into the research, the more moments I had when I felt that if something went wrong, I would not be able to counteract it. I can’t get out of the role of a girl who reports to the manager.


Record in the telegram channel: “A girl in the top of the club in terms of sales, who knows how to persevere, did not earn money for the first month and a half, because she considered the methods unacceptable. Now other dancers consider her methods unacceptable.0008

Before asking the club staff for an interview, I had to outline the study and ask for permission to record. I didn't know what their reaction would be. But more often than not, the girls were surprisingly calm about my request.

We talked about attitudes towards striptease, how girls tell others about their work, how they see themselves in the future. Some of the answers were unexpected. For example, many girls said that their self-esteem has grown while working at the club. They began to feel better about their own bodies, and outside of work, wealthy men began to take care of them more often. Of course, the question remains what exactly they meant by self-esteem and whether the answers are not socially desirable but not truthful.

During the interview, some of the girls said things that they usually wouldn't admit to their colleagues. Among dancers, it is customary to talk about work with some bravado: what we do is cool. But in private, anxiety and shame for “selling the body” are revealed. It happened that during the same interview, the respondents expressed several beliefs about their work, which contradicted each other.

This was especially common among new dancers. At first, the girl says that she is having a great experience, and the people who judge her simply do not understand anything. And after a few minutes, he begins to talk about trading in the body.

But in general, the majority of respondents assessed their experience rather positively. They said they were making art and bringing people pleasure. They noted that they have money - unlike friends "from a past life", before striptease.

Some people had to change their circle of friends when they took this job: mainly because of the night schedule. At the same time, most of the girls claimed that they calmly tell their friends about their work, and often hide it from their parents.

It is interesting that with the advent of striptease, many have changed their idea of ​​how their life might turn out in the future. Some of the girls said that they wanted to continue to make a career in this area: work in different clubs, improve their dancing skills, “tour” around the country. Although before they did not even think about such a future. It can be assumed that some have developed beliefs like, "I'm here because I express myself and grow this way."

There were also those who said they wanted to leave the club. That it is bad and difficult for them, but they do not know where to find help. Sometimes when you hear that, it's hard to be a neutral observer. Despite the “exploratory position”, you always understand that you are interacting with real people in the real world, and you begin to empathize with them.

Guards and prisoners

Telegram channel entry: “Third night I dream of a club…”

Initially, for my research, I was going to take from 10 to 20 interviews. But, when I talked with ten respondents, I decided to finish the study. On the last shift, I was anxious: I no longer felt that if something happened I could get out of the role and resolve the situation in my favor. I was afraid that the manager would come up to me and make a remark - although, it would seem, what do I care about the manager? After making sure that I had enough material, I wrote to the management about the termination of cooperation.

Many people know about the Stanford experiment: a group of students were gathered in one area, some were told that they were guards, others were given the role of prisoners. The further, the more the group dynamics began to imitate the real environment. Initially, all participants remembered that they were only playing roles, but gradually the distance between the "guards" and the "prisoners" increased. There are ethical questions about this experiment, but it does illustrate how agency can be lost. I think I felt something similar.

When I announced my resignation, I saw how the "retention system" works in the club. Several managers took turns talking to me. At first they told me: “Sunny, don’t leave, we can handle everything, we are one family.” Later, the tone changed dramatically. They wrote to me that I had to finish a few more shifts (which was not in the contract), and if I left just like that, it would be “on my conscience”. That I was "treated like a human being" and given "all privileges", and now I'm letting them down.

There was a feeling that they did not come up with these phrases themselves: I think they have something like scripts. It is interesting that, despite the clichédness, these words work - watching my own reaction, I noted a feeling of guilt.

When it was all over, I felt tired and somewhat relieved. Next, I had to work on processing the collected material. I can’t say that the experience of working at the club greatly influenced me: I assessed the risks in advance and determined at what moment I would leave. But still, any experience affects us in one way or another.

I would like young researchers planning such work to make sure in advance that they have a clear plan and the support of loved ones. It is worth remembering: no matter how cool and confident you may seem to yourself in “ordinary” life, when immersed in a different context, everything can change. We often underestimate how much our environment influences us.

Starting a business
Create a brand new strip club business. Similar to retail stores, restaurants, and veterinary clinics, set aside a lot for your strip club business and build it from the ground up. Just take out your phone and buy a club!

Strip clubs are not a venue type, you need to use your phone or computer to purchase them.

Build a strip club
Business strip clubs have no requirements, you can build it however you want, but some objects are required for certain functions. Consider locating conventional strip clubs such as the Drinks Bar, Dancing Poles/Seats and Dancing and Viewing Seats, and Additional Seats in private lap dance venues.

You can build your club however you want, but the Dancing Pole and Dancing Spot objects require extra attention. Once you decide where you want your dancers to dance and place the Dancing Pole or Dancing Roller there, keep the comfort of your customers in mind as well. Each customer is looking for a place to take a seat as soon as they start watching the dancers, so be sure to place several seats around each dance pole and dance area.

It is not necessary for each hired dancer to purchase a Dancing Pole or Dancing Spot, as they will be busy with other tasks such as Bartending and Charming.

Tip: If you've built a stage for your dancers, it's a good idea to isolate it in such a way that clients don't climb on it instead of looking for a place. If the club is built in a way that makes it difficult to find a suitable spot to watch the dancers, this can lead to customers being placed in undesirable locations.

All management functions are controlled from a special club management category on your phone. Including designing employee clothing, working after hours, and viewing financial reports. You can even hire yourself as a dancer in your own club.

Your club is set by default to open at 19:00 (19:00) and close at 4:00 (04:00), as these are the busiest hours for strip clubs. You can set the opening hours by using your phone and clicking "Manage Opening Hours" in the "Striptease Club" category. You can open your club at any time by choosing the same opening and closing hours.

The employment of dancers has no restrictions, except that they can no longer have a job. You are allowed to hire up to 6 dancers (unless they are distributed via cheats) and assign them to any tasks you want during business hours. If you want to work in your own club, then the "Employ Yourself as a Dancer" option will do so if you have an available job and your Sim is not working somewhere else.

Hint: the menu with available recruitable sims can be expanded to display more options with the command "ww.set_stripclub_employee_pool_size < amount >". And you can increase the number of dancers you can hire to 12 using the command "ww.set_dancers_employee_limit < amount >".

When hiring a dancer, pay attention to their skills. Dancers with a good charisma skill will do better in charming clients. Dancers with a high mixology skill will be able to offer the best drinks that increase profits. And dancers with high fitness skill, one of the nudity skills and dancing will be better in "Stage Dance".

All hired dancers define your club type based on their gender and preferences, allowing you to create a regular club, a gay club, or a mixed club. This affects which customers will visit your place. Carefully selecting your employees will prevent certain clients from appearing.

Dancers hired by your club will perform one of three main tasks: Stage Dancing, Bartending, or Charming Clients. Each task can be assigned manually, or you can let the dancers decide for themselves depending on the current situation in the club. Micromanaging or helping yourself will increase the performance of your club, but dancers are fully capable of doing everything themselves.

To assign a task, click on the Dancer employee and select the "Assign Task" option in the Strip Club category. When playing as a dancer, simply start a specific task to automatically jump to it.

Stage Dancing and Viewing
Dancers with the Stage Dancing task will search for a nearby or designated Dancing Pole or Dancing Spot. Each dance program is randomly generated and can be changed at any time by clicking on a dancer. Stage dancers are one of the main reasons clients visit the club, so make sure you always have at least one on stage.

Every dancer on stage attracts the attention of customers who are willing to pay to see some impressive moves. Dance performance is the main factor that determines the amount of customer attention and the amount of advice a dancer receives. The main elements that contribute to a dance performance are dance skills, relationships with certain clients, and currently playing music. If a dancer is performing poorly, you will most likely notice uncontrollable yawns.

The better the skills and relationships with clients, the higher the performance, which directly affects how often and how often the dancer receives advice. The more advice the dancer receives, the less clothes on the body.

A good performance is nothing when it doesn't last long enough Dancer, fitness, striptease and dance skills are a major factor in their duration. Each dance routine aims to last as long as possible, so once the dancer is done, they need a few minutes to rest. This obviously doesn't stop them from talking to customers and offering lap dances.

Tip: Dancing Spot Marker is used as an alternative to the dancing pole. It offers a brand new set of dances that do not include the pole dance. Dancers dancing on the Dancing Spot marker are free to move their bodies as they wish. In addition, Dancing Spot Marker comes with an invisible swatch that is hidden in live mode but still clickable. Try it!

Dancing pillars created by Azmodan22, Noir and MJ95 are supported by default.
Pole or seat dancing is available outside of strip clubs and allows you to develop the striptease skill.

Bartender and drinks
Bartending dancers will focus on making and serving drinks. The sale of drinks is the most lucrative source of income for the club, so it is imperative that someone look after the bar.

The process is quite simple, the customer enters the club, orders a drink, finishes it... and leaves the empty glass behind. Wait a few hours and your entire club will be filled with empty glasses. To deal with this chaos, consider hiring a janitor. Leaving empty glasses around not only takes up space, it also makes everyone quite uncomfortable.

Although the bartending dancers are involved in the sale of drinks, the management of prices and supplies of the bar remains with the owner.

Every drink you make consumes the bar supplies needed to keep it running. Drinks cannot be sold when your club runs out of stock. It is advisable to order bar supplies in advance so that they can arrive the next day. Plus, fewer bar supplies means fewer drinks to make. Customers who cannot order what they want will be very unhappy with it.

You can order supplies by clicking on any panel to access the Order Supplies menu at the strip club. The items purchased are made up of the total number of items ordered, which will be delivered the next day around noon. The cost of deliveries depends on the base price of drinks ordered by customers. Selling expensive drinks requires buying expensive goods.

Selling drinks at a base price and buying consumables to replenish the bar is not the most profitable loop. As the owner, you must adjust the price markup of drinks so that every drink sold is profitable. While selling drinks at 100% markup sounds great, it will fail very quickly when customers are left with drinks they don't want.

The high markup price and low cost of the bar make it less likely that customers will buy drinks. The scarcity of consumables means fewer drinks, and the increased price makes them less attractive to buy. When you can't sell a customer's favorite drinks, cut the markup to make other drinks an attractive proposition. .. at least until bar supplies arrive.

You can adjust the markup by clicking on any panel to access the Strip Club's Markup menu. Don't get frustrated with setting the markup as high as you want. If someone does not complain, what harm.

Strip clubs have a special feature that increases the number of drinks Sims can order from 4 to 39, including drinks made by Icemunmun . And if you use the real names of drinks from Basemental, it's completely compatible.

Charm and Dancing
Charm challenge dancers focus on finding clients who are interested in socializing or lap dancing. Lap dancing is the biggest source of income for dancers and the most popular role in the club. In most situations, an outgoing client will look for an available dancer and ask them to dance.

Lap dances are performed in manually assigned places. Appointment of lap dance seats is required for clients to request a private dance. Any seating chair, sofa, armchair or chair in a club can be designated as a lap dance seat.

Simply build a separate room, place a seat in it and click on it to designate a lap dance seat. Any client wishing to dance will use the designated areas to receive a lap dance. Please note that all seats designated as lap dance venues are used exclusively for lap dancing, so sitting or napping is not permitted.

When clients do not want to ask for a lap dance, the dancer must take the initiative. After greeting the client, 6 new charming social interactions become available. Using a charming interaction works like a romance without actually creating a romantic connection between the dancer and the client. Instead, Charming increases the level of Charm, which affects how much the customer likes the dancer and the club itself. The higher the charm, the higher the tip.

Charming clients influence every aspect of the club. High charm with a dancer not only increases the tips they receive. When a customer orders a drink, they are more willing to pay a higher price. And when a dancer fails to charm a client, he may not want to return to the club.

During the lap dance, the same rules apply as for the stage dance. The better the skills and relationship with the client, the higher the performance, which directly affects how much the dancer earns, in addition to the usual pay.

Technical Details

All Strip Club settings are located in the Nude Settings -> Strip Club Settings menu.

Dress Up After Dance setup is quite simple, after each dance the dancers dress up in their career if they are partially naked.

The "Personal Lap Dance Cheat" setting unlocks the ability to request a lap dance at any time as a club owner.

The Static Clients Count parameter allows you to override the number of clients that show up in your club on a regular basis. By default, the club is considered the most active from 7pm to 3am, but changing this setting will force customers to show up every hour. To disable this cheat, change the number back to 0 (zero).

The Dancer Profit Percentage parameter allows you to change the revenue share for each individual tip the dancer receives. After a client throws money at a dancer or a dancer gets paid for a lap dance, a portion of that profit goes directly to the club. If you don't want dancers to share their profits with the club, change this setting to 0%.

The Dancer Earning Multiplier allows you to change how much the dancer earns from tips and lap dancing. Changing the value to "200" will double the profit, while changing the value to "50" will increase half the profit.

The Bar Multiplier setting allows you to change how much the bar earns from selling drinks. Changing the value to "200" will double the profit, while changing the value to "50" will increase half the profit.

The "Native Undressing Behavior" setting focuses on how dancers undress while dancing. By default, dancers follow special rules that prevent them from taking off their gloves, shoes, and socks while dancing. When this setting is enabled, dancers will follow the rules you set in Nude Settings -> Clothing Settings.

The option "Auto assign dancers' tasks" allows you to disable the ability of dancers to automatically change their tasks. When a dancer performs a task that is not needed in the current situation, they will change it automatically unless this setting is disabled.

Focused interactions with dancing objects, if disabled, will unlock all interactions that will be available on dancing poles, dancing spot markers, and circle dance seats. By default, this setting limits interactivity with these objects to dance-related actions.

Client Visit Limits, if disabled, allows all Sims in the world to visit the club regardless of their current relationship status. By default, Sims in established relationships are less likely to visit the strip club.


Why is the lot set to General?

To ensure maximum compatibility with the game, WickedWhim's custom business lots are specifically set to "Universal". Everything should work fine.

I don't want my dancers to tend the bar. Can I hire a bartender?

No, for maximum flexibility, dancers can also care for the bar, as some clubs around the world do just that. All you have to do to have a dedicated bartender is hire a dancer to do just that task.

Assign a bartender task to a dancer, he will remember it every time he works and change into something that looks like a bartender. Performed.

Do you want to take the place of an employee dancer for the bartender? Just use the ww.set_dancers_employee_limit cheat command to increase the number of dancers you can hire.

Technical Limitations

The original intention was to use the Manage Business window/tab to manage the strip club, but its extremely limited implementation prevented this. Then the alternative was to completely get rid of it and make all business operations manageable from the phone.

The strip club is managed using the phone, but the "Business Management" window/tab appears with a warning not to use it, as a complete blockage was causing errors in the game. The way you own a business in the game does not provide any other solutions.

Music & DJs [Future]

Music is one of the most important aspects of dance, every move seems less impressive if it doesn't match the rhythm of your favorite song. Every dancer should have their favorite genre of music, which is directly related to the music the DJ is playing.

The dancers will come with their favorite genre of music, and when it is played by a DJ, the performance of the dance is greatly increased. Playing the wrong music, or no music at all, hinders the performance, which subsequently reduces the amount of advice the dancers receive.

Since DJs only come with a few types of music they can play, the plan is to increase that number and let them play all the music the game has to offer. This is necessary if you decide to replace the DJ with a stereo system and control it manually.

In addition, dancers should be able to make friends with the DJ and share their tips to improve their dance performance. Friendly DJs will play the right music for the dancers on stage and will work really hard to make sure they look good while dancing.

Impact, Events and Security [Future]

The current implementation of the strip club function is a baseline experience that aims to provide a club management environment. Starting a strip club is minor, except for the possible loss of money. Dancer employees still require the emotional response and job satisfaction features that can impact your business performance if you neglect your staff.

Running a business can be pretty boring, so adding random events and events should add more variety. Anxious and needy customers, emotional and confused dancers, random accidents, potential quarrels and fights, and other events that require the player's involvement. Each day of running a club will be unique in some way.

When a problem arrives, the best thing to do is to let security deal with it. The bouncer who manages the entrance and charges extra for entry, as well as the security guard who kicks the butt of troubled customers. Anyone who breaks the rules of the club will be met by security and the pavement in front of the club.

Lack of impact makes everyone in the club feel empty. To fill this void, a lasting result is required from visiting the club for the first time, from excessive drinking, from lap dancing or from interacting with charming dancers. Relationship modifiers, individual moods, and reputation changes will come into play after you spend time in the club.

Significant Career [Future]

The main focus of creating a Strip Club is to manage it. The purpose of this function is to create a club, hire dancers and respond to what is happening. Where it is possible to hire a playable sim as a dancer, dancer gameplay is not the most fun experience.

Creating a meaningful gaming career is a challenge in its own right, which is about presenting interesting missions, variety of options, and reasonably fun gameplay. The fact is that the job of a dancer is not very interesting, so turning it into a main function requires much more attention and planning.

When playing as a dancer, you will perform typical tasks that the owner orders you to perform. You are free to do whatever you want as any dancer, but club work is up to you. Perhaps the introduction of more tasks for dancers, but not the exact purpose of the strip club.

Customization [Future]

Managing a club that never gets better can get tedious, so introducing specialized perks that make things easier and better will change that. The higher the tip, the easier it is to satisfy customers, the lower the cost of bar supplies, the less cleaning or accidents. There are many things that can make running your club easier.

The identity of your club should depend not only on the appearance, but also on the rules that prevail inside. Defining the rules of your business will allow you to change its atmosphere and character. Maybe you want to require an entry fee, maybe you expect every customer to pay for at least one drink, maybe you have a very strict "do not touch" policy, or you don't want the dancers to talk to anyone and just offer dancing.
