Exotic Dancing Undercover – 5 Tips for Hiding your Job from Family

  1. Dance in a Different City
Hiding your Job

It may seem obvious but it’s often overlooked; one of the best ways to prevent being discovered as an exotic dancer is to dance in a different city than where you live. While it may seem convenient to dance locally, you run the risk of being seen by the same everyday people that you know in your hometown.

So instead, think about heading for a larger city where you may find that you can blend in with the crowd and you lessen your chance of being spotted by friends and relatives. You don’t want to accidentally run into people that you know who are sure to gossip about you, possibly ruining your reputation.

  1. Don’t Do Social Media

You may be proud of all the money you make at your job, and how good you feel now that dancing is getting your body into shape, but think twice before you post it up on social media. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other platforms create a digital footprint that will follow you for life, so it’s not worth it to put yourself out there for the world to see.
This is especially true if you mistakenly post it on the same account that has your family and friends listed!

If you have a social media addiction and you can’t resist posting about it, then for your own sake make a new account dedicated to your dancer persona with a separate email so that you can use a pseudonym. Try not to post too many up-close face shots because, through an image search, your profile can be discovered by people that know you outside of the club. People can use information like this to stalk, harass and blackmail you, so it is risky to use social media when you may have future plans to work a vanilla (i.e. normal) job someday. If you do plan on using social media, consider the next point, getting a burner phone.

Get a Burner Phone!
  1. Get a Burner Phone

Just imagine how embarrassing it would be if a friend or family member snooped through your phone and saw the club number? To prevent that from
happening you can get a new number that you can use to disguise any activity from work. A burner phone is a cheap, throwaway phone that you can use for work. Store your phone somewhere secure and don’t let anyone else use it.

This phone can serve as your work phone where you can keep in contact with co-workers or customers. That way, you won’t be giving out your regular number to people that may use it to track you down. Having a burner phone allows you to keep your work life private, saving you from having to separate work from home life. You can also use it for your social media if you chose to without having to use your regular number.

  1. Tell Them You Work as A Bartender or Waitress

After your shift, when you get off work, if you didn’t cash in your tips, you probably have a huge stack of dollar bills to take home with you. If someone discovered that would you be afraid to tell that person that you got that money working as an exotic dancer? Dancing is an awesome profession, but until you are willing to commit to it as a full-time job, you may want to hide the fact that you’re moonlighting as a go go dancer.

Stacks of Cash

An easy way to deal with this is to make up a story that you work as a bartender or waitress. these are two jobs that provide daily pay, easily passed off for what you really do for a living. Even if you want to admit that you do work in a strip club, you can say that you are working as a cocktail waitress, door girl or bartender.

  1. Resist being a showoff!

Yeah, you made big bucks at the club during the week and now you want to go out with the girls and have a good time. If you are trying to keep your dancing life secret, it’s best just to tuck that money away and save it for college, bills or anything important, rather than showing off with a new car, new clothes,  and new lifestyle.

Everyone close to you will want to know where all that extra cash came from, but don’t give in to temptation. Keep a cool head and plan for your future. That is of course unless you are willing to admit that you are a dancer and that you love being in the spotlight. Until then, be safe and carefully consider your actions and consequences.
