NY Post article about college students who strip

According to the NY Post, female college students are becoming strippers in order to pay for their college education. One stripper says she plans to save $1 million by stripping.

This begs the question: if stripping pays so well, why bother to go to college at all? I guess the answer is that it’s low class to not have a college degree.

  1. I think a lot of these student/strippers aren’t really students. Either they are flat out lying about being in college or they are taking a few classes and will drop out soon. Why would a girl lie about this? For one thing, it’s easier to accept being a stripper if you pretend to yourself and your friends that it’s just a temporary part time thing to pay for college. For another, it’s probably easier to sell yourself to male clientele including potential sugar-daddies if you present yourself this way. Finally, it’s a useful explanation for how they spent all of their money from stripping if a lot of it gets spent on drugs.

    • I think a lot of them aren’t really students too for the reasons above. A lot of strippers would be very money oriented so I could imagine a few going into something like nursing that pays well. It would be hard to say what the main appeal of stripping really is. I think a lot of strippers are torn with indecision. A lot of girls want the excitement of a good looking bad boy and they also want the safety and security of a nerdy nice guy type. They want both but you really can’t have both. Some girls pick one and some the other. Some girls go through the bad boy phase and marry the boring nice guy later. I think most strippers want to have their cake and eat it too. They want bad boys because they are bad girls. They hook up with those guys and then use their strip club customers to take care of them financially. They may not be admirable but at least they are supporting themselves and making their customers happy. Unlike many people, I would put them on a higher moral level than a lot of the women sitting around collecting welfare.

    • I’ve never met a stripper that wasn’t going to nursing school. It’s just something they say.

  2. But not so low class anymore to be a stripper, apparently.


    April 29, 2014 at 10:23 AM

    • Of course it isn’t. How could it be after decades of gender/queer/porn studies? A college girl would be more accepted by her peers if she announches her intention for a career in porn as opposed to being a mom and homemaker.

      So many problems are solved if women are put back to their rightful places. More jobs, higher wages, higher birthrates, even less of a need for immigration. It’s endless.

  3. I find it near impossible to believe in a supernatural being. But, every time I read an article like this I find myself really, really, really wanting to believe in a supernatural being who will return society to a state of order. Or at least make women like these gals fear he will.

  4. This is because stripping is not the holy grail. Yes you can make more intermediate money than just about any other job a young girl could reasonably get…but it’s for a short period. The clock is ticking on their appearance…and they will soon stop being able to command premiums when newer younger girls are always coming up.

    She wants to SAVE $1M? These girls are so clueless. They ever hear about living expenses, taxes, dumbass Gucci bags? Premium customers are in in premium (expensive cities). She gonna live in a shit hole apartment in NYC with a roommate to save cash? Bitch, please. Has she even done a simple calculation as to how much time she would have to strip and the amount she would have to earn in order to meet her goals?

    Anyway this is all sexist because men do not have the same opportunities.


    April 29, 2014 at 10:27 AM

    • If she wants to make that kind of money, she’ll quickly take the next step to more than just stripping.

  5. “if stripping pays so well, why bother to go to college at all?”

    Because stripping doesn’t last.

    • ” “if stripping pays so well, why bother to go to college at all?”

      Because stripping doesn’t last. ”

      Actually, it’s because stripping doesn’t pay as well as you’ve been led to believe. On a good night, a lassie will make a fair amount of money, but there aren’t that many good nights.

      When I worked in a gentleman’s club, one dancer told me, “I wish I could have a job where I knew I was going to make $7.50 an hour every day.” This was in 1995. Coincidentally, $7.50 an hour is what I got paid at my day job then.

      Women are drawn to stripping because it gives them immediate validation/gratification and lets them be the center of attention. Lots of compliments and tips from gentlemen admirers.

  7. “… if stripping pays so well, why bother to go to college at all? I guess the answer is that it’s low class to not have a college degree.”

    Stripping is low class. Even if she were to actually complete college, her past stripping cancels out her time in college. Women with class don’t strip, period. This kind of behavior repels high status males, because they know it’s a slut marker. Strippers are for sex only, not long term pair bonding material.

    I’m tiring of “she’s a financial victim, she needed to strip for money for education/school” narrative. It’s nonsense with the word “education” blended in. It’s blatantly obvious how much power attractive women actually yield. Smart attractive women know how to leverage this power without resorting to low class activities like stripping.


    April 29, 2014 at 10:34 AM

  8. Isn’t the cliche of the stripper who’s on the pole to pay for college?


    April 29, 2014 at 10:53 AM

  9. I’m a bit surprised they can make that much. I expected them to look like near models. These girls are financially much better off stripping. The typical NAM girl will struggle to make $1million over the course of their life. Why they don’t school is beyond me, especially considering they’re probably just become full time strippers after they graduate or drop out. From the figures in the article, they’re losing out on $100,000/yr by just working part time.


    April 29, 2014 at 11:07 AM

  10. > if stripping pays so well, why bother to go to college at all?

    Perhaps the women realize the time will come when they are no longer 22, slender, and hot? At the time they need a Plan B (career) in case Plan A (marry a rich beta male) has not yet succeeded.

    • As a 30-year-old with a college degree, but the only work experience is as a stripper, what kind of job will she get?

      If she really wants a career, instead of spending her free time stripping she needs to spend it in unpaid internships so she can get the right work experience.

      • You can strip in the evenings, and intern during the day. You can work fairly short hours for a decent return which makes stripping study compatible.


        April 29, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      • That’s how she pays her living expenses during the unpaid internships. Stripping is *usually* an evening/weekend job, leaving daytimes for making coffee in a magazine publishing house.

        If the girl is smart enough to get into a real college (or even a lot of “colleges”), she’s smart enough to realize that stripping won’t get her much past 25 or 30.


        April 29, 2014 at 12:44 PM

      • Unpaid internships like this one?

        Sounds like the returns to law school are falling fast. But you could probably make it to the strip clubs in San Francisco for the evening shift.


        April 29, 2014 at 2:29 PM

      • Yes, I know there’s some NY Times article about how unpaid internships create greater class stratification etc., but almost no one I know did unpaid internships except during the summer, and as Mathilda points out, it’s not like you would be doing an unpaid internship at night when she strips.

        Theoretically, it makes perfect sense to strip while going to college. You can make a lot of money in the short term, but if you are smart you’ll know that your value as a stripper will decrease as you age.

        Secondly, it will not likely destroy your career in the future. No one is allowed to bring cameras into strip clubs, so while it may lead to gossip around school, I doubt it would lead to any problems on Google searches of you (which is all that really matters for jobs down the line)

        The reason why it doesn’t make sense, is that the type of girl who goes into stripping is likely mentally damaged and/or a drug addict so they end up screwing up their lives, though this is a chicken/egg problem.


        April 29, 2014 at 4:41 PM

      • Have you read Charles Murray’s new book “The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead”? He doesn’t seem to think much of unpaid internships.

        That’s not correct. Junkies tend to end up street whoring. I used to work in the office of a stripper agency and most of the girls weren’t messed up like that. Anyone that messed up is too unreliable to get to a booking on time, and junkies end up looking really rough after a year or so, you wouldn’t want to see them naked (we had one in the ten years I worked there, she lasted three months before we took her off the books). We had students, single mums, an ex navy officer, a secretary who’d got into debt, one teen girl who was ditched from the care system at eighteen to fend for herself and was putting a mortgage deposit together on her own, one middle aged housewife who was in good nick but just didn’t like long work hours. You got a fair mix, same as in any job. About the only defining traits among them were a thick skin and not giving a crap what other people think.

        We did also have one prostitute briefly, but we ended up having to sack her as she kept doing ‘extras’ and the customers started expecting the other girls to do the same (they wouldn’t) and we had to send her packing after some complaints.

  11. I read recently that Gov. Scott Walker dropped out of Marquette University, which could make him the first president since Truman not be be a college graduate. (He would have been a very pasty stripper.)


    April 29, 2014 at 11:40 AM

    • The U.S. is not going to elect a college drop out as President. In reality, the U.S. is not going to elect a state university graduate as president. If you want to know who can really get elected, just look at the Harvard and Yale graduates.


      April 30, 2014 at 4:21 AM

      • Yes, and that is why this country is so screwed up. It’s truly unfortunate that someone with real problem solving ability can’t get nominated, much less elected, but rather we have one Ivy League liberal arts non-problem solver after another because they are selected by the current crop of Ivy League twits who stranglehold this nation.


        April 30, 2014 at 11:28 AM

    • More precisely, we can’t have a president who didn’t attend Harvard.


      April 30, 2014 at 6:28 AM

  12. Neither of the two girls pictured in the Post piece will get a high status male. They are too brown and frankly neither is very good looking facially. They have great 20-something bodies but that won’t last. A Master of the Universe bond trader won’t marry either of these girls. They might, however, be arm candy for a rich old sleaze like Donald Sterling.

    They could pretty easily find a nice beta provider, but I suspect that being in the strip club and fraternizing with bad boys, athletes, etc. will turn them off to nice guys. They will assume they can have it all — husband, kids, career — because Grrrllll Power. They will be wrong.

  13. Lion – You failed big time on this one!

    This article features Hispanic girls, the ones that I knew from the NYC housing projects who were strivers.

    I never found these women to be physically attractive, and their lowly background makes it even more so.

    Just look at the schools that they are attending, why even bother to blog post on this one for us?


    April 29, 2014 at 11:51 AM

  14. I worked as a male stripper, shot boy, and topless bartender. Not a career, but I could make upwards of $500 on a good night, and it was the only job where I looked forward to getting into the ‘office’.

    Ah, to be 21 again…I grow old, I grow old, strands of silver amidst the gold!

    April 29, 2014 at 11:56 AM

    • I’d like to add:

      Not everyone has even one decent broke parent to their name, how else is someone completely alone with no financial assistance supposed to find funds for an education?

      I’d just like to get this straight: letting people see your boobs makes you a slut (from comments above)? Nice to see the refugees from the 70’s have found a home here.


      April 29, 2014 at 12:06 PM

      • Would you like your daughter to be a stripper? Would you be proud of it? “Yeah, Amanda is an exotic dancer at Jimmy’s. Isn’t that awesome!?” Is there any country in the world where parents would be proud if their daughter engaged in pseudo sex-trade?

        How do all the men that come from poor backgrounds do it without the privilege of falling back on their desirable young bodies? They work hard (at shit jobs) and study. Maybe they do part time. Maybe they do CC and transfer. Somehow men can suck it up, but women need to be gyrating on stage? Stop treating women as victims.

        Lest you think I’m against strippers, I’m not. Many of them are beautiful and sexy. I’ll get a lap dance no problem…but I sure as hell am not going offer her any commitment. Purely transactional. If you think that’s a good way to live…go crazy.

      • “Would you like your daughter to be a stripper “(ASF)

        She’s got better employment options open to her. If she were to try it, my concern would be the attitude of the anuses she’d encounter and her safety, not her nudity.

        The whole problem with stripping is what I’m seeing here: culturally based labelling of any woman with skin on show as a ‘bad’ girl. Basically, male lack of respect for anyone not ‘pure’, Madonna/ whore syndrome alive and well.

        You (not all of you but most commentors here) need to get over your uninformed ‘all sex worker women as ‘victims or immoral whores’ mindsets. Yes, these girls could do other jobs for crappy pay. Given the option, do you think young men wouldn’t do what these girls do if women paid the same rates for male strippers? It’s their choice what they do, they aren’t bad people or immoral. Get over your misplaced moral outrage/pity.

        She’s 12.

      None of the schools mentioned in the article are beyond reach of racial minorities.

      Further, a growing number of Hispanic women are aiming for high status White men whom many White women like, and the girls featured in this article might found a more effective way of meeting them.

      • I’ve spoken to a few Hispanic dads who’s been telling me that their daughters are not attractive to Hispanic men because of their loser status. The onslaught of NAM women, and women in general into higher education, is a very effective brainwashing technique to eliminate loser men from the gene pool.

  16. The other costs of stripping include social isolation, influence by peers of poor character, and being lured into prostitution and cocaine and heroin use.
    Taking the business to it’s extreme, prostitution, it’s telling that prostitutes HATE HATE HATE wives. They call wives “whores” and denigrate them. Yet, both strippers and prostitutes dream of a white knight to rescue and marry them.

Like Belle Knox, making $1k a video, claiming she was paying her Duke tuition. Blow their stripper money on impulse items, maybe a degenerate with game gets some money whilst he gets his guitar career going. Marry a beta chump at 35, and the circle of life continues.

  20. I attended an elite college (easier to get in back then) and there were girls there who stripped. Not many, at least not many who were open about it. There were also a handful of girls involved in prostitution, either the regular kind or the no-contact fetish kind where they peed on and verbally degraded rich old guys.

    The weird thing is, none of them appeared in need of money and they weren’t doing it to pay tuition. It seemed to be some kind of weird feminist empowerment thing to them. One even wrote a paper about her experiences for a women’s studies class.

    There were also a few guys, again, not in need of money, dealing large amounts of drugs. One ended up busted in spectacular fashion.

    • People’s “need” for money and their actual need for money can be wildly divergent. From what I’ve heard, a lot of college-girl prostitution is “sugar-daddy” type stuff – older guys who are usually pretty nice to the girls and don’t have a lot of sexual demands, so in some ways, it might be better than having a college boyfriend. Prostitutes’ discretion runs both ways – it’s hard to hide a boyfriend from mom and dad.


      May 1, 2014 at 11:13 AM

  21. In college I knew two girls who posed for Playboy’s “Girls of the Big Ten” issue. This was in 1992 and 1993, before porn became mainstream and ubiquitous. Surprisingly, neither one of those girls was obviously screwed up. I knew them pretty well; one was a coworker, and I dated the other one. They didn’t exhibit any obvious signs of dysfunction like drug use or the like. Both were in my social circle. Neither was promiscuous. Honestly, they were very nice girls. One of them worked at a dormitory for people with severe physical disabilities (that’s where I met her, I worked there too), and the other one was a good-natured All American girl, picture a beautiful high school cheerleader who never has an unkind word to say about any of the nerds and you’ll get the idea of what she was like. I never could understand why they posed nude in a pornographic magazine. It will always be a mystery. I am no fan of the porn industry, and am saddened by the decadence of our culture, and would like to say that there was something wrong with those girls, that they were damaged in some way. But the truth is that they seemed pretty normal and healthy.

    A few years ago I worked at a law firm that represented a pornographic film production company. I was the lead attorney on the case and got to know the clients quite well, I visited the studio several times to collect documents and interview witnesses. I did not want to represent anyone in the porn industry, and hope never to do so again, but jobs are hard to come by these days, so… I quickly discovered that most of the performers in the porn industry are extremely screwed up. Some are better than others, one of the women who worked in the office used to be a performer and was successfully transitioning out of the industry. I liked her, she knew that she had taken a wrong turn and was trying to put her life back together. The company’s receptionist, OTOH, was transitioning INTO the industry and that was horrible to see. She was a sweet 19 year-old Mexican girl who lived with her extended family and, for whatever reason, was fascinated with the idea of being a porn star. I attempted to befriend her in an effort to try and steer her off that course, but she was hell-bent on acting in the movies and it freaked me out, so I avoided her. All of the other performers seemed to have serious drug and psychological problems. The people who worked in the offices as bookkeepers, film editors, etc. made me sad, they were a bunch of 20-something kids who worked at the porn production company because jobs are scarce. None of them were creepy, except for one girl who was a film editor and clearly got some kind of perverse kick out of her work. But everyone who works in front of the camera in the porn business struck me as extremely screwed up. When I dealt with the employees of that company I tried to model professionalism and courtesy, and they responded very well to it, after one meeting the staff actually gave me a round of applause. The whole experience was extremely sad, and I hope to never deal with that industry again.

    So it is possible that these strippers are ordinary girls who, thanks to our debased culture, made a very bad choice (like the girls I knew in college who posed for Playboy), and it is possible that they are screwed up (like the porn stars.) It’s hard to say. But they are clearly making a bad choice, and that’s sad.

  22. Possibly the best looking girl I’ve ever seen anywhere, including movies and TV, was taking tickets at the front door of a strip club in East St. Louis in September ’96. Actually it wasn’t a door, since the place was a giant tent set up in a parking lot. She was dressed in a red/white/blue sparkled Uncle Sam outfit, with her luscious assets threatening to jump out. I’d had a few great-looking girlfriends by then, but still I was flabbergasted by the perfection of this blond package. I didn’t stay long enough to see if she was actually a performer, because the place scared me ****less. There were ‘roided up guidos who looked like Andrew Dice Clay all over the place. Lion would have loved it.

  23. It’s sad these girls have to stoop to this. Another thing that is probably on the rise is student’s seeking a “sugar daddy”.

    “AT FIRST GLANCE, the Web site seems like any other dating site. Most of the men are looking for fit, sexy women, and most of the women want nice guys who can make them smile and laugh. But if eHarmony or is a chatty social mixer, Seeking Arrangement is a down-and-dirty marketplace where older moneyed men and cute young women engage in brutally frank transactions. They’re not searching for longtime soul mates; they want no-strings-attached “arrangements” that trade in society’s most valued currencies: wealth, youth and beauty. In the cheesy lexicon of the site, they are “sugar daddies” and “sugar babies.”

    • I posted this a while ago. It’s a popular site for college women in NYC.

      College guys today are so beta. Really!

      For all those wishful that HBD becomes a full force, I believe higher education has eliminated most of the black men and a good portion of Hispanic men from the gene pool, as all women in colleges are now seeking higher status men.

  24. Edit: sorry for the greengrocer’s apostrophe above in studens

    Actually just after posting my above comment I noticed an article posted a few hours ago reporting on the sugar daddy issue:

    “Some Canadian university and college students are paying their way through school with the help of a website featuring “sugar daddies” willing to help pay their bills and loans in exchange for dates.

    Seeking Arrangement touts itself as “Canada’s No. 1 sugar daddy dating website” and claims to have 130,000 Canadian members who declare themselves as students or graduates trying to pay off their post-secondary debts.”

  26. The Post also has a story about a porn star that says she’s worth $1.5m after 8 years in the industry. LotB, she went to Chelsea Day School then the UN School. Is that an elite education?

    • Isn’t that where The Critic’s kid went to school?

      • Yes, Marty Sherman did indeed attend the UN School.

      • I think OP is completely missing the point on the millionaire mentioned above. She did go to UN day school for a while as a kid – but was kicked out for bad grades. She then went to public high school – Washington Irving in “Grammercy Park” – which was actually a complete dump, <50% graduation rate, and was shut down in 2011. Looks like the family had money problems, because she was working odd jobs as a cashier etc. Then switched to another dumpy high school – city as school. Then talking to strangers on the street, probably also lured by money, and it's all downhill from there. In essence, this tale bears out many lion maxims to a T.

  27. Because, obviously the stripper career doesn’t pay so well after age 25, so even the pro stripper needs a second career.

  28. While in other news, Swarthmore student decides she’s been raped two months after the event . . .

    “When he ended up falling asleep on her bed, she changed into pajamas and climbed in next to him. Soon, he was putting his arm around her and taking off her clothes. “I basically said, ‘No, I don’t want to have sex with you.’ And then he said, ‘Okay, that’s fine’ and stopped,” Sendrow told me. “And then he started again a few minutes later, taking off my panties, taking off his boxers. I just kind of laid there and didn’t do anything — I had already said no. I was just tired and wanted to go to bed. I let him finish. I pulled my panties back on and went to sleep.” Two months later she accuses him of rape.

  29. Some choice quotes.

    “… I feel like stripping’s empowering because I’m not really doing anything. I can stand there and somebody could walk up to me and throw me a couple hundred dollars and that’s it. It feels good.”

    “Not many of my immediate family members have graduated from high school and college. They all thought I was going to be 16 and pregnant. … I think I want to change my major to business and own a strip club now.”

    “… So many people are going through so much debt with student loans, it’s almost ridiculous to ask people not to do stripping or porn to pay for that.”

  30. Do these people not consider doing 2 years at a community college then the last 2 years in a decent state university as an option?

    Is it mandatory they blow 200k on some shitty private liberal arts school?

    Aside from that, why college over stripping?

    You can’t depend on stripping, it’ll make you great money 18-30 (beyond that depends on your genetics and habits). But what are you going to do at 40? It’s not like the amount of money increases, people don’t value your experience, there is no 401k, there is no health insurance, there is nothing.

    And settling down with some schlub for stability, that’s worse than death itself..

  31. “if i were the girl i’d have left the satanic shithole that is les etats unis.”

    The US is the best country in the world for females. The privilege here afforded to those lucky enough to be born with a vagina is absolutely off the charts.

    For men, on the other hand…
