Petunia

Meet Petunia… Something people would find shocking about me is that I was a heroin addict and lived on the streets for five years between the ages of sixteen and twenty one. I shacked up with people when I could and squatted or lived in tents. I would basically steal to survive, so my mom wouldn’t allow me to come home because I would steal from her. I was at a point in my life where I didn’t care if I were to live or die. I would go downtown, get a balloon or baggie of heroin and bang it for days. I’ve woken up in different cities and not known how I got...

Orchid

Meet Orchid… My job was to wander around the bar and sell bottles of liquor that ranged from $400-$2000. Legally, the customer is not allowed to pour the alcohol, so I would stand there as their personal VIP bartender and pour the alcohol while they added their mix of choice. People will pay big money for bottle service because they like the personal service and they don’t have to stand in line to buy a drink. They also feel like royalty and get to play the big shot.  It was an awesome job that I did for almost two years. I made insane tips, too, usually $600-$1100 each shift. The...

Lily

Meet Lily… One night I was walking to the convenience store around one thirty in the morning, and I was approached by three crack heads. I got a bad vibe from them so I smiled at them since that’s my personal test for people. I figure that if they smile back at me, they’re probably harmless. They smiled back but as soon as they passed me, one of them grabbed my purse while the other two pushed my legs, throwing me forward to the pavement. They took off running with my purse. Shaken from the attack, I stood up and started to walk towards the hotel on the corner of the street. I felt...

Lilac

Meet Lilac… I have no tales of abuse or neglect or how I wasn’t loved enough, only a series of unfortunate events that led me to life of plastic heels, too-tight metallic mini skirts and fast, easy money. Life throws curve balls, and if you’re lucky you catch them. In my case, I got hit so hard by one that when the shock subsided, I was already Alice down the rabbit hole. I was falling. Dancing broke that fall. There was a ‘me’ before lap dances. I grew up in an upper-middle class household, with plenty of love and support. My parents divorced in my youth, but together raised me...

Leilani

Meet Leilani… My girlfriend was a server in a strip club and they were hiring another waitress. I didn’t know much about the clientele because I didn’t hang out in strip bars, so I was a little uneasy about applying there. Since I had a lot of waitressing experience, I was hired on the spot. In the year and a half I worked there, my views changed. I used to think that all the dancers were borderline prostitutes and drug addicts, but I found out that a lot of them had boyfriends, were working their way through school and didn’t even touch alcohol or...

Lady Slipper Orchid

Meet Lady Slipper Orchid… Finally my boyfriend asked me where I was making this kind of money. I hadn’t told him anything up to this point because I wanted to drive him nuts. Finally I said, “I’m a STRIPPER and I made $3500 in five shifts! So there!”  I waited for him to start freaking out. Instead of being angry, he started to think about it and said, “That’s really good money. Do you like it?” I said I did and he showed support. Whatever I wanted I got.
