TMI Tuesday - 9/18

Strip for me, I’ll strip for you

1. Have you ever danced naked in front of anyone? What prompted the experience?
I don't believe I ever have.  I've danced in front of L wearing a skimpy costume, but not naked, I don't think.  What prompted the experience?  I was taking a dance class and I had him play the music and showed him my moves prior to the stage show I danced in.

2. Have you been to a strip club? Was it what you expected?
I've never been to a strip club, but would be interested in seeing what it's like, for sure.

3. Have you ever been to an “amateur night” at a strip club?
See #2.

4. Do you think strip clubs are exploitative or are they misunderstood as simple adult entertainment venues?
I think people work there by choice, not under duress.  They  may work there because they feel that the alternatives are not tolerable, but there is always a choice, so I don't think they being exploited at all.  I personally feel they are just another form of entertainment.

5. Would you ever consider stripping to pay for college or other expenses?
It's laughable to imagine I could command any sort of salary from stripping - not only do I not have the body of a stripper, but I am also quite shy.  Though I do perform (in a musical sense!) in front of large audiences quite a bit, I'm always part of a group and never naked, so I can't consider it the same thing!

6. Have you ever given your partner a private dance?
No, I don't believe I have. 

7. Would you ever perform a lap dance for a complete stranger?
Unless I was seriously liquored up or something...which is unlikely..I doubt this is something I'd ever venture to do. 

8. Showgirls, Strip Tease, Magic Mike … What is the sexy Hollywood stripper scene you have ever YouTubed?
I'm not a movie watcher and in the few movies I've seen over the years, I can't recall any stripper scenes, memorable or otherwise.  I do recall, when hearing others talking about movies in open company, being very surprised that "Blow" and "Snatch" were not porn titles!  Good thing I'm quiet.  ;)

Bonus: Do you have a stripper fantasy, that given the chance of not being found out, you would turn into a reality?
When I was young (around puberty) and struggling with all those new hormones and my sexuality, I remember expressing a desire to become a stripper when someone asked.  That was a conversation stopper, let me tell you!  My poor mother.  Anyhow, I don't think I really have a stripper fantasy as such, but it's possible I might have a bit of a fantasy to strip or give a lapdance to my partner.  I've taken a little class and have the moves down pat, but have never worked up the nerve to actually do it, partially because I don't think there's much interest there and partially because even though I know he'd never laugh at me, I'm still very self-conscious about the idea of it.  I may feel sexy, but I am well aware that feeling sexy and looking sexy are two different things, so I doubt it will ever become a reality.

  1. Your bonus answer is great! I imagine your mother must have been shocked! Jill has experienced the same self-consciousness that you report; it's something that she can overcome with the right audience, of course (typically me), but I don't know that I see her stripping for random strangers anytime soon.
