Strippers, Tell Us The Secrets And Stories About Your Job That Most People Don't Know

Exotic dancers have one of the most interesting jobs in the world, possibly because it's a profession that's often looked at as taboo and isn't discussed very often.

(Even though, of course, their work is totally valid.)


But because a lot of people don't know about the job, we'd love to hear from current and former strippers about your experiences, secrets, and stories.

Or maybe you're iffy about the work, but you feel pressured into keeping the job because it's good money. Or maybe the job just isn't what you thought it'd be and making a decent living off of it is much harder than you ever anticipated.
