There is no way to sugarcoat this. You are walking into an environment where all eyes are on you. Some eyes will be lurking in the shadows, and others will be breathing down your neck, staring right into your soul.
Make your way quietly to the main stage and, within seconds, you’ll realize the spotlight is really a microscope. You’re looked up and down to the point of examination, from the tip of your toes to the top of your crown, from every tiger stripe and tattoo, to the way your fishnets squeeze and cuff your backside.
You are indeed on display for the jungle to see.
In this environment, objectification is to be expected, especially when you’re on all fours twerking in a thong. You may find comfort in the dim red light, but know it doesn’t hide any blemish or imperfection. In reality, the spotlight is glaring and unforgiving. It doesn’t matter if you’re naked or topless; alongside the brass pole, you stand exposed in more ways than one.
Can you mentally handle the microscope?
The conversation about life in the jungle continues. The first installment of the 21 Laws series (The 21 Laws of Surviving a Gentlemen’s Club) dealt with the patron’s agenda. Now, Darius and a select group of smart and savvy dancers have collaborated to examine what it takes to be an exotic dancer.
The 21 Laws of Being an Exotic Dancer is the sacred text that deals with the intricacies of a racy profession that is based on providing a sexual fantasy while being entrenched in a carnal reality. Few jobs (especially legal ones) require you to balance, contrast, and merge the following dichotomies:
- Business vs. pleasure
- Predator vs. prey
- Lies vs. truth
- Fantasy vs. reality
Like a sexier version of Lady Justice, you preside over those dichotomies. In one hand, you’re holding a scale, carefully weighing the benefits of each dichotomy, and in the other hand, you’re armed with a sword, exercising judgment and cutting through the BS with swift force – minus the blindfold.
