Jump to navigation Jump to search This article is about the striptease performer. Stripper sex party stripper or exotic dancer is a person whose occupation involves performing striptease in a public adult entertainment venue such as a strip club.
At times, a stripper may be hired to perform at a bachelor party or other private event. Until the 1970s, strippers in Western cultures were almost invariably female, performing to male audiences. Since then, male strippers have also become common. Certain male and female strippers also perform for LGBT audiences as well as for both sexes in pansexual contexts. Strippers perform striptease for a number of reasons, predominantly to make money. The physical attractiveness and sex appeal of the dancer determines the business she tends to generate.
Touching of strippers is not permitted in many localities. However, some dancers and clubs allow touching of dancers during private dances. If permitted, during a lap dance the dancer grinds against the customer’s crotch while he or she remains clothed in an attempt to arouse or bring the recipient to climax. Strippers, when working, are most likely to be found at strip clubs.
