* In many jurisdictions, a strip club that serves alcohol won't be allowed to have full nudity, presumably to protect the dancers from drunk patrons. However, the law only forbids showing nipple and genitals; dancers will often make use of g-strings and pasties to be as nude as possible while ''techincally'' complying with the law.

* These types of strippers can be found in strip clubs that serve alcohol. Presumably because mixing nudity with drunkenness is a bad combination.

So, you want to load up on the {{fanservice}}? Throw in a {{Stripperific}} costume and other sexy stuff? There's just one problem: this is a Family TV Network! We don't believe in that stuff around here, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar so how do we go ahead and do it anyway]]? One possibility is to make liberal use of CensorSteam, CensorSuds, a SceneryCensor, or a ModestyTowel. This trope is an alternative.

In case you haven't realized, exotic dancers never go topless (let alone fully nude) on American TV shows (other than on premium channels), even though such practices are commonplace in RealLife. (The RealLife equivalent is usually called go-go dancing, but even that may be more risqué.) Even the dance moves are practically ballet compared to what real strippers do to pay for nursing school. Post-{{Watershed}} British TV has no such problems.

A family-friendly stripper wears an elaborate and theoretically sexy costume--that just happens to cover just about everything. She makes a major show of removing a scarf or other accessory instead of actual clothes. Gyrations and undulations happen, but in a strictly PG-rated manner. And lap dances, if they occur at all, are arms-length affairs.

An exotic dancers never go topless (let alone fully nude) on American TV shows (other than on premium channels), even though such practices are commonplace in RealLife. (The RealLife equivalent dancer whose outfit is usually called go-go dancing, revealing enough to be sexy, but even that may be more risqué.) Even modest enough to not offend censors because the show isn't rated for nudity. The show is ostensibly family-friendly, but the characters visit a strip club for story reasons. The girls' dance moves moves, while alluring, are practically ballet no more risque than what you'd see in the average music video, especially compared to what real strippers will do to pay for nursing school. Post-{{Watershed}} Any "stripping" will involve a jacket, dress, or some other outer layer of clothing, and her remaining outfit, while sparkly, is essentially lingerie with all naughty bits covered.

Needless to say, premium cable television and post-{{Watershed}}
British TV has no such problems.

tv are far more likely to cover just about everything. She makes a major show of removing a scarf or other accessory instead of actual clothes. Gyrations and undulations happen, but ''all'' the goods. Contrast GayBar, which tends to be ''wilder'' onscreen than in a strictly PG-rated manner. And lap dances, if they occur at all, are arms-length affairs.

* There are [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funeral_stripper events in Taiwan]] and occasionally Mainland China that hosts professional pole dancers who aren't wearing much but nobody ever goes nude. These events are public and children can be seen in attendance.

Added DiffLines:

* The theatrical version of ''Film/CoyoteUgly'' was rated PG-13 and didn't go further than sexy dance moves and girls stripping down to their bras. The unrated version had longer dancing scenes and a few more voyueristic close-ups, but only added actual nudity during the sex scene.

* None other than Gypsy Rose Lee herself performs an extremely family-friendly strip in ''Stage Door Canteen'' (1943). Mostly, she removes various undergarments, such as a petticoat and garter belt, from under a voluminous skirt and then holds them up.

* Amy's act at Club Scum in ''Film/{{Hobgoblins}}'' involves her stripping down to her bodice and underwear, which together cover as much of her body as a strapless one-piece bathing suit. ("Right down to the workout gear!" as the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' version puts it.) This is treated as a major embarrassment.



* ''Film/LadyOfBurlesque'' a movie about a burlesque theatre shows only skimpy costumes and emphasises the comedy performance. As this was during the days of the Hays Code, no stripping is shown at all. They still do at least have a murder being done with a G-string.

* The 'strip club' you visit in the Undercover section of ''VideoGame/CrimePatrol''. A 'stripper' writhes on a platform, but never even looks like she is about to remove an item of clothing.

* ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenArm'' (1955) was another movie made during the Hays Code era; the girls at the local strip club never go past a bra-and-girdle ensemble.
