After over ten years in the adult entertainment industry, I felt compelled to share my story. Now that I’m out of it and reflecting on every incident (big and little) I’ve realized that it’s an interesting one. And sooo worth telling. I went from a college graduate destined for advertising greatness, to some random chick running around in Tampa wearing a g-string, to the manager of an upscale gentleman’s club in Atlanta. That doesn’t happen very often and it didn’t happen very easily.
In fact, it was pretty treacherous: I made really stupid mistakes. Really. Suffice it to say that at the time, every decision I made was logical. It could have been the liquor, it could’ve been the Florida sunshine, the idea of being around beautiful sexy women who had few, if any, inhibitions (I’m a lesbian. Yes, a lesbian stripper. Go figure!) But, whichever it was, I did it. Good or bad, it’s what happen. I look back very often, thinking what if? Obviously, our experiences shape who we are and all, but would I be that different if I had stuck to the straight and narrow, no pun intended? Would I be some advertising account executive glamazon making 6 figures and being known as a cold-hearted bitch? Maybe. But that wouldn’t be nearly as fun as getting naked for strangers and wearing sequin bras with overly dramatic make-up, getting to make out with hot chicks every once in a while.
I figure if I hadn’t taken that ‘low’ road, I wouldn’t have half as many amazingly ludicrous stories to share. Hell, I may have been one of the many advertising executives laid off in the past couple of years. Then, I might be a stripper now out of sheer desperation! Instead of a stripper out of the purest, most innocent of curiosities. Yes, I was curious. I already had a job, but extra money never hurt anyone, right? That depends. Was it worth it? I think so. But after reading my stories, venturing through my random thoughts, learning the tough lessons of life as a hardened stripper (ha!), you decide.
I wasn’t a whore, but I wasn’t a saint either. This is a detailed account of my journey: it’s funny, it’s bold and it’s all mine. Enjoy…
