When one thinks of the average annual salary of a stripper they usually think of a woman who is living on the borderline of poverty, forced into a role that requires not much more skill than to be pleasing to the eye of the observer. It is often associated with single mothers who are struggling to provide for their children, or drug addicted women who are using it to supplement their next hit. Occasionally they can be seen as nymphomaniacs or completely intellectually challenged individuals. However, many of these stereotypes are completely wrong.
A recent study by researchers at the University of Leeds has revealed the lives of 300 strippers, and it will leave many shocked. Not only are many of the stereotypes incorrect, but it reveals that the average annual salary of a stripper is greater than that of the average worker.
The study by the university has shown that strippers are rather intelligent. It revealed that one in every four strippers has a university degree. Not only that, but twenty percent of the group of 300 women also use the money they make to pay for their undergraduate degree or postgraduate degree. Usually those university students who wound up taking their clothes off for strangers entered the line of work because of the kind of course they were studying. For example a woman pursuing an arts degree would have entered into stripping due to a lack of suitable jobs.
