Sassy by name, Sassy by nature, I write to explode the myths which surround the lapdancing profession - standing up for the clubs, the girls and the customers. Its not always drinking champagne and playing with my tits - it can be hassle, hustling and hangovers. At heart I'm just a regular twenty-something posh cockney living in London who likes taking her clothes off...
My industry is so full of competition and hustling, wouldn’t it be nice if we helped each other and rejoiced in other’s successes once in a while?
This aim of this lapdancing website and stripper blog is to be a positive platform of news, views and information about the exotic dancing industry which has steadily evolved to become a global business. However, it is still very much in the shadows, but with the advent of the internet and the sexualisation of society more and more people are devoting time to speaking out, promoting themselves, or giving advice – dancers and punters alike.
I also made a Top 5 of my favourite stripper forums
Here are a few of my favourite sites;
For industry news check out http://www.strip-magazine.com/
It’s a fun and comprehensive online zine that covers the stripclub industry across Europe – news, club reviews & dancer of the month!
But there are many other lapdancing blogs…. and here are my faves!!!
I’ve put a few blogs up in the ‘blogs I love’ sidebar, but as I’m always reading the web for new posts and blogs on stripping, stripclubs and anything sex worker related, I thought I would write a few positive thoughts on the blogs that I enjoy. Please use the comments space below to alert me to any I might have missed…;)
The Angry Stripper
This girl dances in Houston, Texas, which is a totally different kettle of fish to my lapdancing life in London. They have a live stage show set in a shower! The men wear cowboy hats! Customers tip the girls on stage! Her blog is beautifully set out and easy to navigate, and has some really, really funny and painfully true observations. She also has a new book out, Diary of an Angry Stripper Why not buy a copy and see what she has been ranting about!?!
One of my favourite fellow tweeters, not only can this girl make me laugh in 140 characters but she also writes like an angel – raw, punchy, with a life most could only dream of. She studies, she has sex, she strips, she pumps iron at the gym. A true wunder-kid with fabulous new boobies to play with. Mwah!
Tips for Strippers
This blog is written for dancers, and has lots of tips to help a girl maximise her money. I’d agree with a lot of what it has to say, but it doesn’t go into really explicit detail on sales techniques as it acts as a promoting vehicle for stripper sales books. I’ve actually bought the Jessica Simmonds ebook and found that it made a lot of sense, but was probably better for beginners or should be used in conjunction with other sales, confidence and NLP books before it really impacts on my earnings.
Please also see http://www.freestrippertips.com/
This site actually reviews many of the stripper sales programmes that you can do, and again has lots of tips on what to wear, what to say and what NOT to do as a lap dancer.
There are lots of ‘stripper wealth’ and ‘maximise your lapdancing earning potential’ programmes out there, which can be really helpful in boosting a girls confidence, honing her approach and customer skills, and planning for a long and prosperous dancing career. I’m currently reading the Freedom V programme by Jennifer McCumber – you can download her ebook here; http://www.how-to-strip.com/
Peter’s experiences in various stripclubs in the USA
Peter is a seriously well-informed punter. His stripclub visits must run into the 100’s – if I gave him a lapdance I’m sure I would be super nervous taking my panties off for such a stripclub guru.
His blog basically rates and describes the various clubs that he visits. Hilariously, he usually rates on a 1-to-10 scale the quality of dancers, the number of strippers available, the variety and diversity of dancers (ie;, are they all barbie lookalikes or have a few asians and ebony blacks thrown into the mix?), and best of all, the strippers attitude. Whilst I will probably never work at any of these clubs, unless Peter makes the trip over the pond, it cracks me up to hear what some of the American clubs are like. London strippers have it relatively easy!!!
A punky stripper with attitude and a lust for life
I heard about this girl from Peter’s site, and love reading her posts on midwest america, tattoos and cowboys. She does some comments and articles for various sex industry & sexworker publications too, including SWAAY and Exotic magazine.
I seriously have a girl crush on her, she has a scary amount of kick-ass attitude that I would love to emulate.
Furry Grrrl – an au-natural pornographer & sex worker activist
I have total respect for this girl, who operates SWAAY, ‘sex worker activists, allies and you’. She also makes porn, but looks nothing like a porn star – natural hair, no shaving, no plastic surgery, just herself as herself, being really sexy.
Her posts and rants are lengthy and legendary, and she is a real credit to the profession – her opinions are always well thought out and touch many avenues and takes a broad look at topics in the media, and how they affect anyone who works in the sex industries ( stripping in the UK is now classed under ‘sex worker’)
Stripper Grrl – a mummy stripper (aww)
A very funny and personal blog from an entertainer
I’ve been reading this ladies blog for ages, and have guest-written on it too, and often given a few rallying comments when her posts seemed to say that she was having a hard time. Her blog often includes lots of pictures and videos of random stuff, which unfortunately is a trick I just haven’t been able to figure out yet, as I’m good at taking my clothes off, not so good at computer wizardry. If only she lived down the road – but alas, she is based in the USA.
A witty commentative ‘zine written by sex workers? YES PLEASE
This webzine is fairly new, but it’s absolutely AWESOME. It’s basically some funny pieces, book reviews and general commentary on all sorts of aspects of the sex-worker industry, written by the girls and guys who are doing it. Some of my favourite bloggers and tweeters are on it already, and I am working on a piece to be submitted myself.
It’s the kind of site that you could spend an hour browsing, and makes me laugh out loud and pee my pants.
A mid-west activist chick who describes being a stripper with razor-sharp accuracy
She calls herself trashy, but I see her as unflinchingly honest and brazen with her opinions. unusually for a sex-worker blog, she is not anonymous. The blog is full of funny hints, tips, and photographs, as she seems to be much more computer literate than my puny efforts… At the time of writing, she is cutting down on dancing and becoming more politically active, as I gather most frustrated young generation American’s are rediscovering the joys of protest and occupation when you have been ‘had’ by the establishment.
I did a good year lapdancing down under and ABSOLUTELY LOVED the stripclub scene down there. So thank god a chirpy Aussie bird has decided to blog about it.
If you know any great lap dancing blogs, or blogs from clients and managers in stripclubs, or sex worker and industry blogs in general, or if you wish to promote your own lap dancer blog,
