The Stripathon begins; Lapdancing in London over Summer 2012


Along with the athletes, I’ve been training and preparing for what’s set to be a busy summer.  The streets of London are now filled with many tourists, annoying Zil car lanes, free events and cool looking people in Olympic tracksuits jumping on and off the tubes.  I wanted to add my voice to the London bloggers during the Olympics, so that people could hear how this global sporting event is affecting London’s busy nightclub and nightlife scene. I’ve set up a Twitter hashtag at #Stripathon so if you have any stories to tell – tweet them over faster than Usain Bolt himself.

Will it be as quiet as many fear, as the big spenders migrate from the city to be replaced by tourists on a budget?

Will the London strippers in East London make big bucks whilst the lapdancers in the West End dance for empty tables?

Will London’s VIP tables and booths be awash with corporate expense accounts, and just how big will their cheques be at the end of the night?

Will I get to lapdance for an Olympic athlete? (I hope so!)

Over the coming weeks of the summer I will be tweeting and blogging my own personal #Stripathon experiences and memories as sassy, and will also be incorporating some juicy tweets and stories from other lapdancers and performers who are working and dancing in London during the busy 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games season.

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...


What do you think? I'd love to hear.
