Modern Americanized forms of stripping minimize interaction by strippers with customers, reducing the importance of tease in the performance in favor of speed to undress (strip).Not every stripper will end a performance completely nude, though full nudity is common where not prohibited by law.
Certain male and female strippers also perform for LGBT as well as for both sexes in pansexual contexts.
Before the 1970s, dancers of both sexes appeared largely in underground clubs or as part of a theatre experience, but the practice eventually became common enough on its own.
Performances are usually fully choreographed, involve dance routines and a costume of some sort.
Strippers perform striptease for a number of reasons, predominantly to make money.
The physical attractiveness and sex appeal of the dancer determines the business she tends to generate.
There are no job prerequisites; formal training is minimal, primarily on the job and provided by more senior dancers.
