Re: “Portland strippers are the WORST.....

Dear Anonymous,

As a stripper, good tipper and perhaps more self-actualized individual than yourself, please consider the fact that the girls don't like working with you because you believe yourself to be more important than the entire basis of which the industry is built. And that's why you don't get tipped well.


Sure, Any good iPod or Pandora list could do, but nearly every shift I'm complimented on my BRMC, Yardbirds, Jimi or Junior Kimbrough, none of which YOU selected.

I've DJd before, and guess what? It's not very difficult to A; state names of dancers, B; state name of song C; play song.

A great DJ can play to the personality of the dancer and to the mood of the crowd, and you know, It might be rap. Maybe it's Kid Cudi, or perhaps Aesop Rock will do. But your seemingly biased ass can Google search those.

What is difficult? To have to dance without giving myself bursitis, to wrangle bouncers to my stage when dealing with outrageously poor patron behavior. It's challenging to keep calm and polite even as much of society hypocritically chooses to obsess and disdain over strippers. My body is strong, my stage moves are pre cursors to Cirque du Soleil. My toes are cracking as I type. How's all that sitting on your bouncer chair going?

Oddly enough, I've heard from food vendors, bartenders and even the dudes who delivered my mattress that, "tippers tend to tip the best". Hmm. Maybe it IS just you.

I'm a muse, I'm an athlete, I'm an unlicensed therapist. You're a whiner, and perhaps should throw in your mic.

Re: “I, Anonymous

As a stripper who had more than one class of Psych Intro: This wasn't written by a stripper. Sorry, just look at the basic diction. "Ugh, strippers are so ..." Simple trade jargon would have equaled a different type of tirade. So, to whatever club-going troll recently had their feelings hurt by the dancer who rejected you, good luck with your passive aggressive rants.

Re: “Strippers Are Not Your Free Entertainment

Plenty of civilians have no idea how difficult these movements are, and not to mention dealing with insecurities from drunk strangers on a nightly basis. From one stripper to another, I empathize.

Re: “Portland as Fuck

Thank you! As a stripper, it was great to see that our outrageous brand of Portland entertainment is appreciated.
