    rawkstar: Being a poor college guy, I always am thinking about ways to make a few bucks. I figure I could do alright as a dancer, but I'm straight. Maybe even a touch homo-phobic when they start acting innapropriate. Do straight guys ever do this? How much does it pay? Just looking for some insight and people's opinions, thanks!

    Poshman: I wouldn't have thought it would have been a problem. If anyone comes onto you than just make it clear that your not gay. I'm sure they'll get the message.

    man it has nothing to do with straight or gay. THere were some gay dudes dancin too but they have nothing to do with us or us with them. It's all professional and for the money. I paid alot of my college strippin and some escorting on the side. It's a good gig man and itz amazing what how much a long dick can bring in. Use it man we got it so why not make some money with it.

    Dancing is not for everyone, and being well-hung is no guarantee of success. There are other factors: Your face, your build, how well you dance, your stage presence. In my troupe, another consideration is police record. There are both gay and straight dancers dancing in all venues. There are straight men dancing in our troupe simply because they know that they can generally make about twice as much money dancing in gay clubs. My oldest brother is an example of a straight dancer who works in gay clubs. How much a successful dancer can make depends on many things: where you dance, if you have a good manager, if you have a following, etc. I won't be so crass as to list how much I make, but just let me say that I've made enough to have paid off my tuition at Tulane University and still be able to spend a month in Europe for vacation. And I don't escort; prostitution, or any other illegal activity, is grounds for termination in the group I'm with. With the right combination of talent and luck, there is money to be made. But a word of caution: don't fool yourself into believing that working in such a field can't come back to haunt you later in life. I know of too many cases where it has happened, and I'm praying that I won't be a casualty.

    Don't be so sure. My "'rents" support me in my decisions. They're okay with my dancing. As long as what I do for a living is safe and legal, they're happy.

    Inwood: Speaking from the audience --you make your money from the people watching you dance. If you're a tad homophobic and you're considering dancing in a gay club you might want to rethink that plan.

    You'll need to interact and flirt with the men. They aren't going to drop bucks for attitude. Doesn't mean you have to sleep with them but you have to play the game.

    All that said being straight isn't a barrier to gay clubs. One of the friendliest bartenders at the NY Eagle is straight. He hugs, kisses, and jokes bawdily with all his customers, he just doesn't sleep with them.
