As I was writing/recording the Psychology of Stripping Chapter for Dancerwealth.com I perused my own blog archives. If you haven’t read the August 2007 post entitled Exploiting the Madonna/Whore Complex, please read it before continuing.
Did you HONESTLY read it….or re-read it….
I wrote that a year and a half ago. I started thinking about that post on Saturday night as I was driving home from Babe’s Cabaret. I spent the last hour of the evening signed out in VIP with a very charming RED personality who was the CFO of a major insurance company (no not the one with the big announcement today) We were talking about how I was married, and how he could never be in a serious relationship with “a stripper.” I hear this all the time. If I sold cars, real estate, jewelry, or overpriced Chinese-manufactured clothing at Bebe, my sales job would not be an issue. However, for some reason the rules completely change when the product/service I sell is lapdances and champagne hours.
So KUDOS to all the self-determined stripperhusbands/boyfriends/significantothers who made the conscious decision to cast away their own madonna/whore complex. It truly does take a unique individual to date/marry a successful entertainer. He/She must have the self confidence to know their partner will be professional at work, unfazed by tempting propositions, and always home on time. Moreover, that person will have to stand up to the “slut branding” by his buddies when “the hot stripper he’s fooling around with” becomes more than someone he’s just fooling around with.
