* Appears in, of all things, the film adaptation of Frank Miller's ''Film/SinCity'': the comic featured nudity (both male and female); the movie kept most of the female nudity, axed all of the male nudity, and most notably took out the nudity in the ''strip club''. The reason for this was Creator/JessicaAlba's career-long refusal to do nude scenes.

* ''Film/DarlingLili'':
** Crepe Suzette's act consists of a striptease, but she has her hat acting as HandOrObjectUnderwear to conceal her modesty. She tosses it away as she walks through a bead curtain, so her audience only sees a little.
** When Lili herself turns her act into a striptease, she only strips down to a leotard. She removes it but still holds it in front of her - and tosses it aside as the lights go down and she rushes off stage (but you can [[FreezeFrameBonus see more if you pause at the right time]]).

* In ''Film/{{Gilda}}'', securely within UsefulNotes/HaysCode years, Creator/RitaHayworth performs an amazingly sexy strip-tease ... in which she takes off a single glove.

Added DiffLines:

* The film version of ''Salome'' features the Dance of the Seven Veils, where the titular princess strips off the skirts she's wearing, but still has a top on.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheBlackDahlia'''s porno film in-universe just shows the girls in sexy outfits playing with a dildo - though the police turn it off in disgust, so presumably it would get more explicit.


Added DiffLines:

* Rayna Von Tosh portrayed a burlesque pin-up girl at the family friendly ''{{Wrestling/SHIMMER}}'' promotion. She only peeled off her gloves and did a sexy dance (while in [[OfCorsetsSexy a corset]]).

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' both have nightclubs with [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe asari]] dancers on stages, but none of them ever take their outfits off.

* In ''Film/IronMan'', the stewardesses on Tony's jet start dancing around a pole that comes down from the ceiling, but don't even remove the outer layers of their uniforms.

* The title character of ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' is a witch who's 'clothes' are actually her PrehensileHair wrapped around her body. When she attacks, her hair moves around, giving the appearance that she is stripping. This was fine for her M-Rated home series, but when she was announced as a GuestFighter for the E10+ rated ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', she had to be toned down. While she still strips to some degree, she always has at least the bare minimum of ModestyShorts and a tube top. In her home series, some attacks left her completely naked.

* Troll exotic dancers in {{Discworld}} are Family Friendly by default, as trolls normally wear very little and consider ''putting on'' clothing to be risque.

Despite what the name entails, this trope need not appear exclusively in family-friendly works. Case in point, Jessica Alba in Sin City.

* 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.
