Research by Leeds University has shown that one in four lap dancers have a university degree and 76.4% said they were happy with their work and not exploited. Nearly a third used the work to fund education – they get paid £232 a shift.
Pros of the job were cited as flexibility, keeping fit and getting paid straight away. Downsides of the job were uncertainty about how much they would earn, keeping the work secret and rude or abusive customers. Source = People Management magazine 16 September 2010
So there you go – no need to feel guilty – you are funding the education of tomorrow’s management. just make sure you are polite and respectful, or they’ll be trouble. I have never had lap dancing as someone’s desired career change, but never say never.
