clubpatron asked: Okay, so I'm asking all the dancers I can find this same question. Call it a survey, if you like:
Have you ever become real friends with a customer in a club?
There are certainly some male customers that I spend time with (at my club) on a regular basis that I consider friends which to me means that I have a lot of respect for them and don’t try to “hustle”. But, being a married woman, I don’t spend time with men outside of my club. Women, however, are a different story. I’ve become friends with two different women who were regular customers. They came in with their “man” who either bought dances from me or paid me to dance with their wife/girlfriend. After a while (as in 6 months or more) we exchanged numbers and went out to coffee or whatever. I took me a while to give both of these women my number because I first had to determine whether I could trust not only them but also their men. Letting someone into your “outside” life is a huge deal for me; they discover your real name, where you live, the names of your kids… But my two customer-turned-besties are really wonderful, supportive and open-minded women who love to hear me talk about the stripper life. I’m really lucky to have them as friends. ;)
