The club in itself is a breeding ground for germs. Management doesn’t seem to care at all about hygiene or prevention when it comes to germ spreading. I don’t think anybody ever cleans the stage. There is an old, rotten mop they use occasionally to sweep the stage but steam cleaning or sanitizing the stage most likely never happens. If we girls wear socks or thigh-highs in bright colors we will end up with black stockings at the end of the shift. But this is only the beginning of it. I have seen girls change tampons in the dressing room without washing their hands before and afterward and then storming right out on stage to spread their huha all over the place. I wouldn’t be able to survive a shift without alcohol wipes, Thieves oil, and sanitizing wipes, not to mention a disinfecting mouth wash I can gargle with after someone sneezes or coughs on me. The make up counters are dirty, the wobbly stools the club provides for us are nasty (most girls sit with their bare asses on it), not to mention the money we deal with that is known to be infested.
Then imagine this time of the year, cold and flu season. Most dancers only work as dancers and do not have any other income source nor health insurance. They cannot afford to stay home when sick with the flu. So, let the germ party begin. But do not forget about the flu ridden customer who skipped work today and can spend some extra time in the strip club indulging in a few extra lap dances, because of course, when sick we all need an extra dose of TLC.
I don’t get it. I think people should stay home when sick or should at least learn basic hygiene courtesy like hand washing and covering their mouth with a disposable tissue when sneezing and coughing. But I guess once you are already sick you don’t give damn about others catching your bug. After all, why should they feel healthy when you are suffering.
