Taking your clothes off and celebrating the naked body is empowering.
It’s always been my choice and I enjoy it. Too often society and the media stigmatize stripping and sex work, calling us exploited, vulnerable or slutty. And whilst I have had moments at work where I have felt exploited, vulnerable and slutty – often all 3 at the same time – I have never found those bad times to be part of the average shift. I believe that stripping is a job, that exotic dancing can be a profession – you can even get career strippers – and that despite its sexual overtones it is basically a mix of hospitality, performance and sales.
I started blogging in secret in 2010
From originally chronicling my experiences stripping, the site has evolved into a website providing information for dancers and customers. It has the only interactive map of all the striptease venues in London – newer clubs, traditional pubs and even chronicles venues that have shut. My website is full of advice on how to audition, survive the industry, and work in clubs around the UK. For customers there are reviews and tips on being the perfect customer.
