A NEWSPAPER FINALLY EXPOSED OUR STORY!

This is the local newspaper and they wanted to interview me and ask why I did what I did. The story she got wasn't what she expected. She said it inspired her. This is every stripper's fight. It's OUR story; and it's only just begun. Those of us working around the clock to come up with a solution to fix a very broken industry won't give up! Dancers will be autonomous once more! Enjoy...

And Then We Have Men Who Totally Get It!

Since there are so many men who are awful to us, I'd like to share the blog by a local photographer, whom I met at my old club and we've spoken a few times. His name is Curtis Isom and he does erotic photo shoots. He's on our side and what's happening really does piss a few men off. Not all hope is lost.. Excellent blog! You must read it.

A Losing Battle: Strippers Left in the Dark

By now everyone knows about the 2018 CA ruling on Dynamex and how it affected strippers. The insulting $300 settlement granted to all the DejaVu dancers around the country. There are about 170 franchises, employing an estimated 5,500 dsncers, give or take. So a $1.5 million settlement was really garbage. The news made it seem as if a few dancers were awarded that amount and it triggered some dancers who, unbeknownst to them, got just as screwed as all the DejaVu girls, and the results varied.

  In fact, two dancers decided to take on their club head on- they wished to remain anonymous and went by the alias' "Jane Roe" #1 and #2 (public records can be found on any court docket site, or Google "Shannon Liss-Riordan sues San Francisco club"); and her firm will take dancer cases from dancers all over America. How is this new news? It isn't. It's a recap so this next HIGHLY IMPORTANT information that might help cushion the blow from the aftermath, and some…

What Exactly is a "Hustle"?

I was part of a discussion recently in which a girl asked a very simple question, but nobody could give a clear and concise answer; partly because there isn't one. You can define the word in a few different ways, but let's stick to the "stripper hustle" for now. We all have our own. Some whisper sweet nothings in guys' ears. Some are sensual and use their sexuality. Some simply act like themselves.. I love making people laugh. I use sensuality and sexuality on stage, conduct myself as the lady I am, and use my brain/sense of humor when speaking to customers. No stripper reveals their hustle; I only gave a small idea of mine, only to use as an example.

When it comes down to it, everyone has their own style, dances in their own way, has a unique floor show, and of course their own hustle. What they do to make money and how they talk guys into getting private dances. You can't just grind on their crotch and shove tits in their faces, and expect them to be "…

Basic Stripper Etiquette- Part 1- Ladies

"I'm going to become a stripper and get paid to party! Yay!!" said almost every freshly turned 18 year old stripper ever! The disappointment behind the fallacy that is the very core of a stigma, for some, is nothing short of shocking. Am I saying that stripping is NOT a party, nor an excuse to act like a fool, and it's definitely not "easy money". Regardless of that, there is ONE part of this industry that has become highly overlooked, to the point of being nearly obsolete; strip club etiquette. Yes, that is definitely a "thing", and it doesn't only apply to customers. A consistent and proper etiquette should be everyone's number one concern, because a club's entire exiatence depends on it. That said...

Ladies, we ARE this industry. WE make or break a club's reputation. Without us there would be no clubs! The industry isn't dying solely due to the economy, or internet porn, cam girls, etc.; it's also dying because the "…

Men Would Never Survive Dancing..

The absolute most obnoxious thing men say about stripping is that they would do it if they were women. "If I were a chick, I'd be a stripper, or a hoe"... No. No you wouldn't! You know why? Because it takes A LOT of patience for bullshit that men, as a gender, don't have! Y'all have the patience and attention spans of ferrets on meth! Tits and a vagina don't automatically equate to piles and piles of money. It takes HARD work and patience. You have to listen to people babble on about themselves, play "20 questions" (but you're the one answering), or hear about bowel movements and other randomly foul bodily issues. It's not all titties and tulips!! Ugh... Let's make this idiot proof, shall we? We'll call it "Stripping: For Dummies"..

When I first started dancing I thought it would be the easiest money ever because I was young, sexy, and loved (still do!) being naked. Seemed like the perfect job.. It wasn't. Not at fi…

Don't Quit Your Day Job to Become a Stripper!

You're probably wondering why I, of all people, would discourage girls from "quitting to become a stripper"? I'm not. I'm telling them straight out, don't do it! It's a slippery slope. If it's something you've always wanted to try, cool; don't quit your job! If your day job sucks and you want to make more money, cool; don't quit your job! This is the absolute FIRST mistake that "baby strippers" make. Why do I say this? Because that's what I did and I wasn't ready. The first month, give or take, EVERY baby stripper makes "new girl money"; even veteran dancers make that money when they start at a new club. What happens when that "easy" money stops and you realize you have no hustle? No talent? Or lacking something else crucial to this job..

I get it. You're young and enthusiastic. You've never made $500 in one night before, all in cash. You're loving the attention and guys racing to the stage…
