A Single Mom Stripper is a single woman working in any aspect of the sex trade (stripper, porn star/adult model, escort, hooker, masseuse, taxi-dancer, etc.) because she sees it as a practical way to support her child or children.

May be a HookerWithAHeartOfGold. The children might be treated as a SonOfAWhore, whether or not actual prostitution is involved. May also be used to give the DisposableSexWorker a sympathetic backstory. Compare with JustifiedCriminal. TruthInTelevision of course, but one must remember that plenty of strippers--with and without children--dance because they enjoy it and not because of circumstance.

A Single Mom Stripper is a single woman working in any aspect of the sex trade (stripper, porn star/adult model, escort, hooker, masseuse, taxi-dancer, etc.) because she sees it as a practical way to support her child or children. On one hand, this trope can humanize these women and give them a story behind their beauty. But on the other hand, it can imply that a woman who is only in the business due to circumstance is [[MyGirlIsNotASlut more respectable]] than one who does it by choice.

Added DiffLines:

* The song "Rockabye" by Clean Bandit implies this about the subject of the song, who is going to "do what I got to do" to provide a better life for her young son, and also mentions how she can't find the child's father anywhere. The music video makes the stripping aspect more explicit, with the mother twirling on a stripper pole in a bar in her underwear.

* Tiffy in ''Series/TheUnit'' worked at a BikiniBar after separating from her husband. Unable to find a regular job due to a DUI conviction (she'd taken the rap for the Colonel's wife), she does state it's also about keeping her daughters in horse-riding lessons. The bar was shut down after a fire led to the police finding drugs.

* This trope proves to be a godsend for Yuusaku Godai, the male lead of ''MaisonIkkoku''. The young man manages to graduate from college as a teacher trained in early childhood education and hoping to work in a elementary school, until he's laid off and the only work he can find is a strip joint. After a humiliating period as a street barker, things turn around when one of the dancers, a single mother who couldn't afford daycare, is forced to bring her toddler kids to work. In this situation Godai is ordered to take care of the child safely out of sight in the back, and does so well that the other dancers, predominately single mothers themselves, ask him to take care of their little kids. Pretty soon, Godai is running an excellent daycare centre at the strip joint and is deeply valued by the rest of the staff.
