You know, you criticise your customers, cops, management, media, the general public etc and defend fellow strippers fiercely, but what exactly do you do in terms of public service? Apart from stripping, that is.

I’m not even going to talk about how many years I’ve spent pursuing psychotherapy as a career or when I drive my neighbor to the pharmacy to get his prescriptions because he needs them and doesn’t have a car. I’m not going to talk about how many few other people in this world feel they owe fuck all to the public. I’m also not going to spend time correcting you about who and what I criticize (because I often post about people being awesome). I’m going to put all those things aside, even though they are entirely relevant to this ask, BECAUSE:
This blog itself is a public service. It started as a place to vent about how demanding and stressful my job can be, but when I realized I had gained this huge audience, my purpose changed. I talk about what it’s like to work in the sex industry, what it’s like to be perceived as a sex worker. I talk about discrimination and prejudice, and sometimes that comes from clients, cops, or the public. I raise awareness for rape culture and try to set an example of feminist thinking to the best of my ability. I also on occasion use my wide audience to bring attention to other causes that I think are important.
I would like to close this answer by reminding you that you don’t know fuck all about me outside of my profession. You don’t know about my education or my living conditions or my personal life. Your entirely intangible understanding of my existence doesn’t accommodate for this kind of judgement and scrutiny.
I don’t know what bug crawled up your ass this morning that you felt the need to try and trivialize my impact on the world around me - maybe it’s the nature of my profession and you’re prejudiced and feel the need to do this to make yourself feel better. And in conclusion I would like to re-state that you don’t know me and to kindly invite you to suck my dick.
The Young Guys
The customer base at my club is primarily business men from the ages of 35-65.
I prefer it this way in all honesty, and there’s a reason.
MOST GUYS IN THEIR TWENTIES CAN’T HANDLE STRIP CLUBS!
Or have zero etiquette.
Here is why I typically avoid young guys:
- Most of them are broke.
Bottom line. Don’t really need to explain why a stripper doesn’t like broke men.
- Most of the rude questions/comments I get are from young guys.
“Isn’t this degrading?” “Do you ever feel like a piece of meat?” “So what did your dad do to make you end up here?” “If you were my gf, you wouldn’t have to work here”
ACTUALLY NO I DON’T FEEL LIKE MEAT, MY CUSTOMERS TREAT ME LIKE A HUMAN BEING, PROBABLY BECAUSE I AM ONE.
- A lot of them try for/expect more.
I know a lot of men of every age group want extras. But, young men in my experience REALLY want them. I had a young man whip his dick out the other day and was furious when I told him I was walking out. His response? “What the fuck! You didn’t even make me cum, this is bullshit” ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! I am a STRIPPER, this is a STRIP CLUB. If you wanted to cum, you should have called an escort service.
I could go on but I think you get my point. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a couple absolutely darling young males that have been very respectful, but like I said, unfortunately it’s not the usual.
I would like to make the distinction that not all escort services are for prostitutes, but otherwise I really agree with this.
reblog if you twerk for a living.
Kind of. I mean, like, in a way I do.
A thing that happened last night: I'm sitting with a customer and watch as one of my coworkers starts her stage set
Customer: Whoa, that's like, too many tattoos.
Me: I think they're beautiful.
Customer: Yeah but there's like, a lot of them.
Me: ...Yep. She has a lot of beautiful tattoos. Good for her.
.....minutes later, after her panties have come off.....
Customer: (in a judgy voice) Oh damn, she's got quite a bush there.
Customer: I mean, that is a serious bush.
Me: Well, you see, when people reach a certain age, they go through this process called puberty and they grow hair down in their genital region. Someday, when you go through puberty, the same thing will happen to you.
