if only i had a camera and someone to shoot with ha... id have to go for a cheesy porn lol and just have fun with it.
Thanks for the information..It was very helpful!
there are so many things wrong with this i cant name them all.
no seriously, this is really bad. like journalism school newspaper bad.
like, as bad as watching Viva Las Vegas get on stage at mississippi studios and tunelessly fumble through an acoustic version of 'blackbird'
oh wait, that actually happened
gamer7, I know of one game where that was a plot point, "Custer's Revenge for the Atari 2600.
Wow. I do see your point. I guess a strip club is not a dynamic work environment. Let's form a "Mastermind Meet-up" and discuss. Really - - what work environment is "ever so-fascinating"? I mean really. Please, tell me what work environment isn't about kissing ass and dumbing down? This is just a more sexy version of "The Oriface"...I mean "The Office".
Dear "My My",
Please feel free to write your own installment once you hava a link,and at least one friend. How dare you dis someone that at least makes an effort to communicate a "person-ality", while you edit and re-edit your thoughts to make them seem more "Likeable". I mean hopefully, you are not one of those people that get off squashing other people's ideas whilst, having none of your own. "Show me the Pink baby"! Where's your book?
I am a guy gamer and I could never understand the anti-female sentiment. I've always been happy when someone else has something in common with me. If she happens to be of the fairer sex, then that's a bonus! I mean seriously, it's nice to have a female and her energy in the room. Though I do know some dudes that can't think straight when a girl they like is around... maybe they're afraid of losing their edge. hahaha... good read.
Interesting read sort of... weird how it starts out saying there are no bad things about stripping and that it's not exploitative, but ends with stories about stringing guys along for food and drinks then a brief mention of her "stripper mom's" morning crises and crying at the bar.
okay just curious...how is reducing your self to being objectified solely on your physical assets and shoving your coochie in some drunk slobs face fora dollar empowering?
yes shakling youra ss in front of losers for a dollar si so empowering to women...kinda thought this article was propaganda..no offense...
So, let me guess, you're one of the many dazzlingly unique, pierced & tattooed Portland skanks, I mean lovely ladies---no, wait---neo-feminists currently haunting the stage and displaying your wares at a local strip-joint, collecting your wages from the legions of bland, fat, fashionless fools who patronize the places, desperately fantasizing about the day when a beautiful woman, like yourself, would only notice them without being paid.
Well, cheers to ya! I've got no problem with that. Milk 'em for all they're worth!
Fortunately, I've got other things to spend and waste my money on, so I won't be "clocking" you or any of your co-lovelies anytime soon.
Unfortunately though, the story of a well-educated stripper, one who has "had the best training in critical thinking our nation could provide" (and those New England liberal arts colleges sure are expensive! Would take many lap-dances to pay off those loans) who justifies her chosen profession by denigrating the hapless saps around her---fat, fashionless squares who could never understand the ever-so-fascinating world of Portland strip clubs and dive bars--as if they're really any more interesting or any less predictable, is unoriginal and boring. Not colorful and dynamic.
But hey, that's just my opinion. Sorry if that hurts your feelings.
I read 1/6 of it. What tripe shit. I now hate the Oregonian, Portland Tribune, Portland Mercury, and every local TV station in Portland. WW site design grates my eyes. What to do?
Awesome, casual fat-phobia. Well done, female.
What is your day job?
You wouldn't per chance be one of those bland, fat fashionless people,
finding it difficult to appreciate a dynamic, colorful story,
written by a beautiful woman who would only notice you if you paid her?
HA HA "neo-feminist" my ASS! What a joke.

"I had had the best training in critical thinking our nation could provide and I couldn't come up with anything very critical of the sex industry."
"I took a walk to the pissoir to cool down. On the way I quietly clocked my fellow hamsters with my best sociologist stare. These kind, bland, fashionless people had swallowed the status quo hook, line, and sinker and Lord look how fat it'd made them! They were beached whales with little fire left in them. They'd given up on beauty and truth—perhaps they'd never even thought of it. "
I went to the "pissoir"? I "clocked" my fellow hamsters? The snide judgement? I hope her stripping is better than her writing---she'll be needing her day-job.
Well, that is incredibly rosy take on the industry. "A dollar for a smile" ...if only it was that easy. I myself danced for 17 years and know personally many of the women mentioned above, and I can assure you that no one who strips for a decent length of time gets away with their emotional health intact....if it was intact to begin with. The process of being a stripper requires an amazing amount of detachment and denial of your emotional reality. A slippery slope, you simply turn off any feelings or intuition that could cause you to question your chosen profession and the iron clad belief that you are a naked goddess who by no means is degraded or exploited. You justify your choice by railing against society, spouting feminist dogma, and shaking your fist at the "uptight conservatives" who dare question why you would do such a thing...all the while losing touch with your original motivations and your sense of self.
I don't know many strippers who are happy with themselves, and if they are they quit. Myself included.
The truth is much uglier than dancers will have you know. Maybe Viva gets to that later...but I doubt it. That wouldnt be as entertaining and empowering.
Man, did that make me hungry. Luckily, the excerpt provided me with everything I need to know about scamming for free food.
"Hey, look at that dude, is he taking a shit?"
"Nah, bro, he's grinding for totchos, Viva Las Vegas style."
