The author of this is attention seeking and oblivious to the fact that the men she is with are using her for jerk off material later. Yay, you are getting free drinks and fun and nobody is hurt but don’t preach the innocence of this career when you don’t know what you are talking about. Drug abuse and sex acts for money are not mentioned here but ugly realities everywhere. Not is the issue of sexual slavery. A ring in manhattan just got prosecuted with Russian and NY mob connections making the avoids as women were forced to work for green cards and “loyal customers” we’re paid to “Marty” the girls. What sounds normal about that? Working at strippers and stripping are pretty similar…but I love my girlfriends response to moronic statements like this article “I made 5 times more money Bartending at the bar above a hooters in Baltimore than the girls downstairs did. And I got to keep my pride. Strip if you have to. Enjoy the clubs with respect. Just don’t fuck people over on either end of the spectrum.
