I have no real problem with them at all. Some times I wish I had the nerve to do such things. I don't know if it is really the person having low self esteem or respect or if they are really out going and love there body and it doesn't faze them.<br>
I couldn't even pose for swim suite stuff. I just don't have the self confidence for it. I also know there is a lot of things that can go wrong later in life if you chose to do these things. Like the teacher that got fired because students found her work from before she was a teacher. I know I wouldn't want my children to find it or my dad. Girls on the Girls gone Wild thing what if your dad seen you on one of there commercials!<br><br>
I've know a few girls that stripped and they did it for the money or because they loved it.<br>
Have any of you ever done it? What is your take on it? I'd love to be able to do it just for one day, but I know I'll never ever bring myself to do it ...I'd pee on myself for sure.<br><br>
I hope this tread stays nice and does not turn in to a fight or judging.

I wouldn't do it professionally, but I've taken an S Factor class (pole-dancing/stripping, women only), and it was a lot of fun! I don't love the attitude many men in strip bars have toward the women, which would make it really unappealing to do for real.

I couldn't even do that! Dh's frat house has a pole and it would be just me and him and I still could not get on that stage!

I would totally be a stripper if I had the body for it. They can make pretty decent money just working one or two days/week. One of my SILs was a stripper and she brought home $200-$300 per night--more when she got pregnant and started showing.<br><br>
I don't know about porn.

Neither of them is my <i>thing</i> personally. To each their own and all of that ... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

i did webcaming for a while. it was ok but got really boring to me. i have also done some posing for artistic nude photography. i enjoyed that. i do not have a perfect body, and i am far from thin and trim, but i did like doing both. it sort of gave me a new found confidance for myself becuase it wasnt like anything was covered in clothing, there was no hiding certain parts. it was all out there in the open. i would easily do the photography again, but not the webcaming. i just got too bored with the caming, even though the money was decent.

I danced for 2 years, just out of college. I actually had a "real" job during the day and would do it for fun and $ at night and on the weekends. I figured the window of opportunity for doing such a thing was very, very small in the span of a lifetime.<br><br>
They had an amateur contest every Friday night, which I would sometimes win. Finally, the management asked me if I wanted to work there. I could work any hours, anytime. It was awesome. I look back on the experience (it was about 8 years ago) as one of the best times of my life!<br><br>
I was married and my DH didn't care. It was a nice club though, absolutely NO touching, very tame....some would say boring. The dancers had to wear full length gowns to walk around, there was a nice restaurant etc...On a Saturday night, usually the patrons were about 50% women and couples.<br><br>
That being said, there were many women there who had very sad situations. They were there, because it was one of the few things they could do without an education. (and still make 75-100K/year) So, it's like any job you hate, or do just for the money...not a lot of fun. They were addicted to the money and the things that went with it. I saw them buying TONS of designer clothes, sports cars and living in nice condos. Not saving a penny. Some were addicts of other sorts. (alcohol and drugs) I stood out like a sore thumb, with a college education and supportive husband. I was happy and healthy, which showed when I would interact with customers.<br><br>
I would love to write a book someday about the experience. I was always amazed how much men (and often women) were willing to spend! So, many folks were just looking for a friendly face. We would often talk for an hour or more.<br><br>
I think my opinion about stripping really depends on the establishment itself. DH and I have walked out of places where we saw some yucky stuff going on.<br><br>
IMO...porn is an entire separate issue.

I have never stripped but if I had an attractive body and was single, I wauld no have qualms with doing it. I even once applied for a cocktail waitressing job at a strip club before. Porn I would never do. I think its a woman's choice to work in these professions if she chooses, I have no judgements. I also think prostitution should be legal.

So funny this got brought up. I've been looking for a job recently and I have no experience in anything other then 6 months at a gas station. I made a joke to my dp that I don't qualify for any jobs that don't include taking off my clothes and he's been trying to convince me to do so ever since<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Ok, I always thought it would be fun to try and even after having kids I'm in pretty good shape, I'm 25 now and not getting any younger, if I can get the guts (and learn to dance lol) I might give it a shot.<br><br>
I think Porn is very different from stripping and I could not even imagine doing it...but I don't have a problem w/ it otherwise.<br><br>
Sooo anyone in WA ready to teach me to dance<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Agreed...I think it would be a much safer and healthier world for women who choose to do this.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Have you been to any local clubs? It's not exactly "dancing!!" Just kind of moving with the music, slowly. Sexily<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Make lots of eye contact. Look like you're enjoying yourself. Just stay away from the pole tricks. That does take lots of strength and practice. Most clubs would have you shadow an experienced dancer for a few days until you get the hang if it.

I wouldn't personally do either one because of my personal religious beliefs, and I would be terribly dissapointed if any of my children chose to do so as adults for the same religious reasons. However, I don't have any problem with consenting adults doing what they want with their bodies, nor with other consenting adults viewing it.

Have you noticed the large number of adult stores here in the Bible Belt? I don't think any other area has as many.

Agree with you 100%. I just think it takes a certain type of person to enjoy that line of work and be successful (profitable) at it. It's not all about the best body or biggest boobs. (Although big fake ones make the most money over the long haul) Many customers were interested in a natural, "girl next door" look.

totally. i was one of the top earners at our club, despite having a big ole bubble but, big thighs, a relatively unflat tummy, and real boobs. oh, i hardly ever wore make up.<br><br>
but i can make my cheeks slap together with the best of em, and that wasn't a skill most of the men in this club had seen.<br><br>
i think the leopard thongs helped as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I retired not long after moving in with my SO, hung up the g-string so to speak. i have worked in many aspects of adult business. I have never made a porno movie (though I have been asked to countless times). I have friends who still dance, I have friends in porn....if I ever needed a lot of money quickly, I'd do it again. (I'm getting a bit old for that life though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">)<br>
I'd prolly just dom again instead of dance....that's more fun anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil"><br><br>
ps...My SO did NOT want me to work anymore...he said get a regular people job...um, when I met him I worked 7-10 hours a week and made $1000+ per week....why would I go work 40+ hours for a little bit of money???? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I think it's great as long as a woman is CHOOSING to do it (strip or porn). If she's doing it, because she feels that she has no other options, then it's really sad, and I hope that she can find a way to do something else.
