    Seriously Considering It....

    I've been seriously considering exotic dancing for about a year now, mainly because I want to get a leg up on my finances and be able to go to college. I'm stuck in a financial rut right now and I feel that I just simply can't make enough money to live on my own and attend school...

    By Choice

    I danced for 3 years and it was the first time I did one job consistently (at the time).  I loved the freedom to work on the days I wanted to or not work at all.  And I wasn't the girl who was paying her way through college or suffering some sort of hardship.  I...

    Truly Revealing

    I was an exotic dancer for 11 years.  I had answered an ad in the paper when looking for work.  I was 28 years old.  I thought I'd just go in and check it out.  I learned so much about myself, about others, about competition, about beauty and it's shallowness...

    I am exotic because I am my own standard of beauty. I don't need society to tell me anything. I am different and beautiful, unique and intelligent. I am a child of God.
