I’ve already written about how the men who patronized Club Paradox tended towards exhibitionism, but none wanted to be watched more than the man we called ‘The Masturbator.” Almost all the men jerked off as they watched us–that was, as … More
I have never really been one to feel much kinship with other women. I am and have always been–excepting a short period during my teen years when I tried my damndest to eschew all trappings of tradition, feminine or otherwise–the girliest of girly girls. Throughout my life my circle of friends has been comprised mostly of women, true, but the concept of some kind of universal sisterhood had always been completely alien to me.
Until I started stripping. More

The GOP convention is an important event for the politicians involved, the party in general and the convention. It is also really important for the stripping community of Tampa. It is a huge business opportunity and a confirmation of every dirty old man stereotype. Strip clubs are counting on the GOP convention to ‘make it rain’ for a whole week, according to an extremely long and detailed article on Republicans and their affection for strip clubs on CNN. But the impending hurricane as well as strict warnings and adviser bans for members of the GOP could turn that rain into a drizzle. More
I have to admit, I don’t really understand why prostitution has suddenly become a feminist act. I consider myself very passionate about gender equality, but I don’t see how that relates to the acceptance of selling sex. More
Rihanna decided to unwind at a strip club after some late night recording in Chelsea. She tweeted the evidence because she’s not a role model. Do you understand? More
Would you like to see Kate Middleton gyrate onstage while wearing only feathers, pasties, and some sort of comical prop? That’s probably never going to happen, but seeing her burlesque artist cousin Katrina Darling at her upcoming New York show might be the next best thing, especially if you take off your glasses and squint a little. More
Please do not ever say any of these things to a stripper. You will annoy her. More
In college, I went to some strip clubs. I’m a girl, so I have a pretty easy time of it at nudie bars: free lap dances, lots of genitals rubbed to and fro about my person, and much free soda. However, many girls don’t realize that they, too, can have fun at strip clubs. In fact, they believe that strip clubs are the dominion of professional football players, cage fighters and men who “get tatted.” They’re wrong! So, I’ve written and “illustrated” this extremely helpful guide to making the most of your strip club experience as a lady. More

Don’t you hate it when people pretend like “burlesque” is some sort of magical high art form completely divorced from the idea of taking one’s clothes off for money? As if some boobie tassels automatically make a lady morally superior to the more modern types of strippers who are out there? Famed burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese does, and she is going to tell it like it is (with her trademark grace, of course). More
Holy shit, guys. We’ve just hit the mother lode of never-before-seen 1960s and 70s style photos. It comes in the form of a whole bunch of “audition” Polaroids from a SoCal strip club an anonymous Flickr user (supposedly) purchased for all of $10. Looking through the pictures, I’m struck by how very un-stripper-like many of the women seem. Why, some of the photos could even be mistaken for senior portraits. Others are more vampy; I wonder if they were more likely to be chosen than the innocent looking ones? One thing’s for certain: with stripper clothes of yesteryear looking as cool as they did, it’s not hard to see why people like Dita Von Teese are trying to bring some retro glamor back to the ol’ titty bar.

I know, I know, the very mention of the word “car” makes your feeble lady-brain stop listening and go to some happy place of cosmos and kittens. But look, these cars belong to a pretty woman! Who models, and does burlesque, and used to be a stripper! More
I’d like to imagine JFK and Stalin care about the Oxford comma in this instance, even if we never do anymore. And, in an effort to make this a fashion/beauty based post, instead of just “a fun shout out to people who love grammar and think commas are sexy” – which stripper outfit is better, JFK’s or Stalin’s? The answer is Stalin’s, obviously, although I think it’s fair to say one would feel more comfortable wearing JFK’s. So. There are going to be two polls on this now, one on whether you are for or against the Oxford comma one on whether Stalin or JFK has the better outfit. Here are the polls. More
