Who Are the Highest Paid Exotic Dancers/Strippers?

Stripper earnings shift from night to night, depending on the day of the week, how big/small the club is, and the number of customers patronizing the business. Despite this, some girls have hacked the entire process, making up to 6 figures a year while stripping.  

In “The Sex Business: The World’s Largest Strip Club” documentary by Channel 5, strippers working in Atlanta’s famous Magic City admitted to making up to $8,000 a night partying with A-listers and celebrities like Rihanna, Lebron Jones, Kevin Hart, Kanye West, P Diddy, and others.

As a newbie or baby stripper, it’s easy to get discouraged, especially on those sad nights you don’t make as much as you ought you could or on those days when you’re excluded from the money rain due to customer preference.

Here’s the inspiration you need to keep going.

The Highest Paid Strippers and Exotic Dancers

It’s hard to determine the highest-paid strippers in the United States simply because most clubs treat strippers as independent contractors earning from commissions and sales. However, in 2014, a college student made up to $180,000 stripping at Scores in New York.

Remember that Micheal Ocello, owner of Scores strip club, is the highest-earning strip club owner in the US, with an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion.

Kash Doll, an American rapper and former stripper, also revealed she made up to $26,000 a night while stripping. Catch her on this episode of Renaissance Man with Jalen Rose.

In the episode, she revealed she started off making $700 a night.

She went on to say: “I said, ‘Oh, I’m about to stack this money up.’ I made $26,000 in one night.”

Speaking about her time as a stripper in Michigan, she added: “I just got so popular to the point that I was on flyers every week and I didn’t dance on the floor like the regular dancers.

“I was like the highest-paid dancer in Michigan. And it’s been that way for a long time and nobody really did it again.”

Kash Doll claims she made up to $250,000 a year working in Detroit strip clubs.
