I’m currently munching apples with my daughter. The husband, ex-husband and drummer are in the band room beneath us. They are practicing the set list for their Sept. 27th show with High on Fire, housed at Dante’s in Portland. The mirrors and candles rattle around us, and Raven tells me “I will dance”, while in her high-chair.

I have a date in an hour. Some fancy, candlelit place. He’s one of the most industrious businessmen in town. His hair product probably costs more than my kimono dress.

After that I’m going to run wild in the city with the boyfriend. Sneakers, pants, maybe Ill chug a beer before we take turns pissing in the alleys, giggling like high-schoolers.

It’s not that I’m living three separate lives, it’s just that my one life has tons of dimension. Good. Night. Be safe.

Hey, I'm sure that you get a lot of these messages, but I wanted to ask if you have any advice for auditioning at a strip club. I've had some dance training but am unsure of what would constitute a good floor routine. I've not really ever done anything to do with pole except for playing on the one my brother used to have. Thanks!

1) Don’t stress it too much. Most clubs don’t expect you to have previous experience.

2) Smile

3) Ask beforehand what the rules are, most clubs in PDX require full nudity by the end of the second song.

4) When in doubt, probably slow down, it’s easy to let your adrenaline overtake you and just run all over the damn place.

*Also, that last line is my favorite. Go Brother!*

Oh, you are a professional seamstress? DON’T YOU KNOW THAT MAKES YOU A DIRECT CONTRIBUTOR TO THE SWEATSHOP INDUSTRY AND THAT THE BLOOD OF CHILD LABORERS IS ON YOUR HANDS?! By If radfems talked about other jobs the way they do sex work. (via stripperina)

One of the saddest and most hil- NO BITCH, the sad thing here is the fact that you're a stripper. If you want respect, maybe you should've graduated high school. 😂😂 when did stripping become a legitimate career?




Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.


Oh snap


Proud to call this girl my coworker. See you on Friday nights, girl.

  • Customer:

    How can you do this job (stripping)? Isn't it degrading having to take your clothes of for money?

  • Dancer:

    You're the guy that just forked out $300 for me to take my clothes off. Isn't it degrading having to pay that much before a girl who looks like me will take her clothes for you?

Hi! I dance in Reno and the Bay Area and was curious about Portland clubs! Are they pretty accommodating to traveling dancers? How do auditions work? I understand you are probably busy so I appreciate any advice and input you have for me! Thank you in advance!

Hi dear,

Some allow drop-in and are fairly easy with come and go.

I’m not positive, but I would check out Golden Dragon (juice bar, 18+, downtown, open til 6a.m, fully nude) and Spyce (alcohol, topless only, downtown, rich dickhead club) and Union Jacks (near downtown, Russian mafia owned, alcohol, fully nude) regarding same-day as audition shifts.

Other clubs will simply require a photocopy of your ID and for you to sign paperwork before you do a stage audition, which is typically one song or two.

The vast majority of clubs in PDX are fully nude, and this is required in order to work at those clubs.

But unlike other states, you do not need to purchase an entertainer’s license.

Everyone argues, even if it’s rare. We talked about it, he apologized, and then appeared at the club to set twenty more apologies on the rack. I was smiling extra big for that stage set.
