Think you understand what goes on in strip clubs? Think again. A brand new guide by the Donna Preston of strippers shows dancing for bucks is a hustle like no other person.

Stripper life! A Celebration of Dope, Ass, and Cocks Who Like Money is an illustrated coffee guide by Janice the Stripper that acts up a hilarious, zealous, and informative peek into the secret life of professional dancers, the gawking males that are wooed into throwing cash at them, and the low lit companies in which these transactions may take place.

A year that is last, author Janice Franks, whose 2016 memoir chronicled the life of her on the strip club stage, raised almost 1dolar1 50,000 in a Kickstarter campaign which backed the hardcover Stripper Life! project. “If you are searching for a redemption narrative about a female that thinks embarrassed about the body of her as well as the options she’s made, search elsewhere,” she vowed. Started her career working for Skin City Entertainment as a San Luis Obispo private party stripper

Rather, Striper Life! draws on the author ‘s wisdom and her initial research: “The Stripper Survey,” a 35-page questionnaire which drew responses from about 250 past as well as current strippers.

The book and her survey’s results refuse the thought of sex worker-as-victim and proffer a perspective of the pole dancing stripper like a 21st-century bodhisattva in high heels.

Do not name them gentlemen’s clubs

In a single chapter, “Why I Won’t Call Them’ Gentlemen’s Clubs,'” Janice takes a scalpel on the tongues of entitled males that speak from turn. “You’re so beautiful and smart,” a male buyer asks a blonde dancer in one illustration. “What are you undertaking here?”

Stripping is a feminist act

“Stripping has educated me in that upright naked on an elevated platform — challenging being seen, worshipped and given — is a great feminist act,” Franks creates. Instead, she explains, her occupation, has trained her self respect and then served to encourage her. By controlling her sexual company within the strip club, she regulates the way of production plus the value of her on the market.

Sex workers are therapists

“The Untouchable Goddess was never me,” a dominatrix-turned-dancer known as Monica Coe Soiree shares, “but it was not until I turned into a stripper that I recognized that my sex magick and strength was in intimate connection and sweetness, eye contact, soft touches, and considerate conversation.”

As Soiree views it, “Sex employees are therapists,” and strippers are carrying out the jobs of theirs.

Their superpower is a secret

In “Let’s Play Doctor: A Kinky Misadventure,” we discover the key to stripping is not concealed in a thong. “Open your [expletive] ears and also the secrets of a new rent check are right before you,” Franks advises. The one point standing between the dancer and her rent check will be the male before her. It is not by gyrating that she will unlock his wallet: It is by hearing him.

Strippin’ ain’t easy

In an enthusiastic refutation of the concept that stripping is taking the quick way out for a female seeking to earn cash, “Pole dancer having a Ph.D.” Lux ATL difficulties Stripper Life! people to rethink the notions of theirs of the stripper’s art.

“I challenge you to realize that although you are socking away money so the family of yours is able to have a much better future — once the world realizes everything you do, you’re to them just a’ bad mother,’ a’ bad wife.’ I test you being a’ dumb slut’ in the eyes of the planet whenever your center is beating with brilliance and art.’ Taking the quick way out,’ huh? Okay. I challenge you to become a stripper.”
