My girlfriend of 4 years is talking about becoming a stripper. We had always talked about it because of crazy amounts of money should could quite possibly make. She is ok with it, and I am about 90% of with it.
What do you guys think? Would you ever let your significant other partake something like that? We are not hurting for money, but she goes to school, and currently works full-time and is totally stressed constantly. This is a job where she (and I) could live with more money in our pockets, and she could make her own hours, be in great shape, and raise her confidence.
Let me know what you guys think.

Some guys, especially gang bangers wont take no for an answer. I think I would feel more or less bad for your girlfriend if you agreed with her on this one. That kind of job can bring more grief than one would want in a humble abode.

it takes a certain type of person to be able to handle this. think of what she'll be doing every night. think of the guys who will be trying to win her affection with cash, think of the sugar daddy wannabes. think of the drug use that goes on in these clubs. think of the VIP room aspect - anything goes.

I think that you should be scared that your girlfriend even wants to do this. How did it come up? Just from the money aspect of it? Has she been fantasizing about it?
Sounds like big trouble looming on your horizon, I sure hope not for your sake, but if I were you, I'd try to talk her out of it.
Crackeur brought up some great points and those are probably just the tip of the iceberg.
There are going to be "after hour" parties. She's going to want to hang out with her new stripper gf's and bar hop, it's a train wreck waiting to happen IMO.

From a male stand point I can say some things go on in clubs that are not supposed to take place. It depends on the owner and the location, as well as the "ladies" working there. When I was younger I worked in the club different positions ending with bartender assistant manager. I also "dated" (if that is even an accurate word for it) many of the "ladies" who worked there. It was a bit of a dream for a young horny guy I guess; I had endless booze and women.
Even if you are not the one taking your clothes off things can change for you. There is something dark about much of the club life and it tends to stain what it touches. Sure there are some respectable women out there, however they are far and few.
I can only give firsthand account, to any asking this same question now though I say do not do it. If she insists find someone else and move on. Nothing good will come of this unless you have an already different relationship. Money can sway and tempt a lot of people, even more so now that times are tough for many.
Most of the girls in the club I worked did drink and some used drugs. All of them aside from one either had kids or were pregnant. Only one of them was in or stayed in a steady relationship and they were married but were swingers. Several of them did outside parties were anything goes (basically they were hookers). Many were also very easy (for lack of a better word). As I said I "dated" many of them, it was not hard to get to know them better. It was like the place oozed sex.
Like I said it changes everyone involved. The places stain people.
