    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...

    Introduction To A Different World

    Preface: Please keep in mind that this occurred in Australia...where things may be a little different than what you may imagine. At the tender age of 17, my "career" as an exotic dancer, came about purely by happenstance...and it lasted for a glorious 12 years; some of the best...

    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...

    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...
