    when I was in college I was an exotic dancer and worked at a Gentleman's Club near my home town. I was born in Arizona. I loved nude dancing very much in front of men. I come from a nudist family and was not afraid or ashamed of taking my clothes off and showing my great...

    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...

    Memorable Customer

    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...

    I was an exotic dancer in London,

    i loved every min of it! It was like a party every time I went to work with the girls. At the time it was helping me with my university studies. Until the tutors found out and I got booted out. They said I had "failed" a module, but I hadn't and I had no way to prove it. If I...
