Just a question out of curiosity.. I would definately try this line of work if I had more body confidence!

I haven't, but I have seen a few moms here on COM mention that they are in that line of work. As long as you are making that choice independently and because it appeals to you in a way, then I see no problem with it. I think it would destroy a person's self-worth if they were forced into it by someone else or if it was their only choice to support themselves.

The only person I have every personally known who was a stripper chose it on purpose and only did it for two years after college to pay back her student loans more quickly. She wasn't a mom. She could have gotten a lower paying job in her career-field, but she enjoyed the work and the pay cheque. It set her up for future financial success.

I wouldn't do it because I am not much of an exhibitionist. Although, who knows what I would be like if I did have a great body to show off.

I used to be on the same track of mind as many, that it is degrading to women, it is a last resort kind of a thing....I am sure it is in many cases, but these women are making a shit load of money...knowing full well what they are doing. I don't think it is degrading when they have the choice to do it or not. BUT, saying that, I would not want my daughter doing it.

Yah ... takes more confidence that I have. I'd be in fear of people tossing my clothes back at me .... can be good money though if you work in the right place

I never have, it can be degrading but not for me because I am to shy for that.

just wondering.. strippers are always seen as being young and childless etc. I was just curious as to see if there have been any mums who have taken the plunge. I hear the pay is good lol
