    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
