    Not That Exoctic

    Yep I danced. But it wasn't that exoctic. I wasn't a ********.. Just a topless dancer. That was an unusal time in my life and with two kids small at home it was a good way to earn enough to support us all. My hubs at the time didn't work, at least not all the time. It took me a...

    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

    I met him about a year into my time at 'my bar' of 10 years.  I knew him for 7 of those years; danced for him during the 'no touching' days which were out in the open, no booths for privacy, on into the lap dancing phase (he wasn't into the grinding and preferred I just did...

    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...
