I have been a dancer in the Erotic Dance industry for almost 9 years – I always get a chill whenever I say that out loud. Now, most dancers who have been working as long as me have become bitter and hard. This is not me. I actually think this industry has helped me become a complete person rather than hinder me. I have had a very successful and fun career.
I have met far more wonderful beings than creeps.
I don’t think men are assholes – in fact my experiences at the clubs have increased my compassion for the opposite sex.
I am not a bimbo who is overly concerned with her looks. My brain is my number one asset and I honor it.
I could go on and on….the point is: I LOVE WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING!! I consider it my career – yes, I am a career Stripper!!
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Athena, you can’t do this forever.” and “your looks will run out”.
I know all of that and I thank you for your concern. What I also know is that I have a personality that fits being a stripper perfectly and I actually know I am following my life path by being a stripper. More on that later.
I have SO many observations, critiques and advice to dancers and customers that I have accumulated over the years floating in my head. It’s driving me crazy. I need an outlet. I am going to be using this Blog to channel some of those out of my brain and hopefully these words will find those that can use it to better this world – or just to better their strip club experience.
