No matter how much you like your job and no matter how cool you are with making a living from dancing and taking off your clothes, you likely are very well aware that others might not see it the same way. So, how do you talk about what you do for a living with other people?
Do you just blurt it out there and walk away with your head held high? Do you create a cover job? Or do you just tell Nosy Nellies it’s really none of their business?
It’s a tricky situation but here are some tips for talking about you career as an erotica dancer at Rhode Island Dolls in Woonsocket, RI.
The Cover Job
There is no reason that you need to tell people exactly what you do. It really isn’t their business and if you don’t feel like they can handle dealing with the fact that you take off your clothes as part of your job, you have a choice of whether to tell them or not. A cover job is simply a side gig that you do and tell people is your main job. You could write a book and self-publish it and tell people you’re a writer. You could sell something like makeup or jewelry. There’s no law that says that you have to reveal every single source of income to inquiring minds, so only reveal as much as you’re comfortable with.
Give Them Facts
You’ve had people drill the importance of honesty into your mind for years, but how important is it to actually tell the truth about working at a Woonsocket strip club? It depends on who you are talking to. You may not wish to tell your son’s kindergarten teacher that you are an exotic dancer at a gentleman’s club, but it probably isn’t a bad idea to share info about your job with friends and family members. Use your best judgment, and make decisions on a case by case basis about how much to reveal.
Confidence is Always Good
Even if it hasn’t happened yet, a day may come when you tell someone where you work and end up with a long explanation about what a terrible person you are. There are many misconceptions about what strippers do at a club in Rhode Island, so respond with class and reassure your critics that you aren’t doing anything wrong when you’re on the clock. Be proud of who you are and how you make your money, and others will begin to respect your decisions.
There are two main types of questions that strippers hear: Questions about how far the clients are allowed to go, and questions about how to become a stripper. Be prepared to explain that you dance on a stage, not delight men in the bedroom. Expect to hear praise about how awesome your job is and field questions about how to get a gig as an exotic dancer. Working for the RI Dolls is a blast – and with the exception of your haters, many girls would love to do what you do.
Bring a change of clothes with you whenever you work at the club. If your dad is a dedicated Christian who cringes at the thought of short skirts and bare shoulders, pull on a cardigan and swap your heels for flats before your next family dinner. Let loved ones know that you are happy with your career choice but respect the fact that many of them do not agree with your choice to dance for a living.
There’s nothing wrong with telling the whole world that you dance for the Rhode Island Dolls, but remember that some of your clients and coworkers might not want to be the topic of discussion. Not every dancer reveals her profession, and not every client admits to frequently visiting a strip joint. Talk about your moves and schedule, but leave out identifying details, such as the real name of your coworkers or the places where your clients work. Visiting a Woonsocket strip club is an escape for many folks, both dancers and visitors, and the club life can not always become intertwined with the world outside of the strip joint.
