UK lap dancers earn £232 per shift on average and report a high level of job satisfaction.
A University of Leeds study has found that one in four lap dancers have a university degree and 76.4 per cent said they were happy with the work.
Dancers earned an average of £232 per shift and up to £48,000 (US$74,000) annually, depending on how many shifts they worked.
Nearly a third of dancers were using the work to fund some form of education.
Of those surveyed, 13.9 per cent were studying undergraduate degrees while 6.3 per cent were working to help fund a postgraduate degree.
