Here is my personal story of my first time stripping, and how it changed my life. Of course, names have been changed to protect the innocent!

Let me take you back to when I was 23, I was young and ready to take on the world. I was about to break up with a very abusive boyfriend who I had been living with for 7 years. I needed a way to support myself. But I knew that I was destined for more than just waiting tables.

At a local restaurant, the cook named James told me about a bikini club on the outside of town named Jiggers. He DJ’d at the club part time and of course he was looking for dancers to help fill in the night shift. Knowing that I wanted to get away, he offered me a job there.
Taking the Dive, Walking in the Club

I decided to take the plunge into the world of dancing. It was the most exciting thing that ever happened to me. I My First time Strippingdidn’t know what to wear or what to even expect. After all, I had never been to a strip club before and I only had my imagination to lead me on. But, at least I wasn’t afraid to try.

I chose a simple but pretty bra and panty set to bring with me that night, and the only pair of high heel shoes that I had. When I walked in the door in the late afternoon, the music was loud and my heart was beating out of my chest. The first thing I saw when I walked in the door, besides an empty club, was a beautiful woman on the stage, upside down on the pole. Immediately I thought, – “Hey! I want to do that!”

I was lead in the back to talk to Dean the manager so that I could fill out an application. Dean was an older Greek gentleman with a kindly voice, and a caring, fatherly attitude. When I told him that I had never danced before, he was very kind to me and let me know the basics of what it took to work at his club. I felt safe immediately and I knew that I had made the right choice.

Then I got to talk with James the DJ about the music selection. He explained to me the basics of a stage rotation and I picked out a few songs to dance to. I was so excited when customers finally came in and sat down, and he started the show up. When it was my turn, I just went for it and got up there on stage, in front of the bright lights.
Total Excitement, My First Time Stripping!

The feeling was like no other. It was my first time stripping and even though I wasn’t experienced, I tried to enjoy myself, and put on a show. I was so excited to be on stage, it was an incredible feeling.

The lights were blinding, the music was loud, and my heart was beating. Being almost naked in front of men didn’t really bother me somehow. I was more concerned with the music, my outfit, and being in the moment.

My first time stripping was exciting and fun. But even still, you wont know how you will feel about it until you are almost naked in front of a room full of all kinds of people, with all eyes on you.

I really had fun that night, and just tried to put my fear aside. There was no question that I really loved dancing after all. When I came back the next night, one of the dancers took me aside and showed me some basic pole tricks. I took to them so easy, but of course, I was young and still in great shape so it was easy. In a matter of weeks, I became more confident on stage and I started really doing those pole tricks well.

The manager Dean really cared about his girls, and he would walk up and down the VIP section to make sure the guys weren’t trying anything funny. I felt safe there, and in time, the girls felt like a family to me.

I started buying CD’s for my music selection, because back then, dancers had to haul their own music into the club, or be at the mercy of whatever the DJ wanted to play for you. I danced to some pretty extreme rock back then, being the only goth girl in the club had it’s advantages – no one wanted to steal my looks or my music.

My style of dancing developed into a sort of story on stage. With my pole tricks, guys would clap and cheer. It was an amazing feeling to have a whole room cheering for me! But then again, that was back before everyone had a phone to stare at all night. They had money to spend before the economic crash happened in 2008. They paid attention and actually socialized.
My First Time Stripping Changed My Life

Times soon changed in the club scene. With the advent of touch phones, guys had excuses to ignore what was My First time Strippinghappening, even though they spent money on a cover charge to come in a club.

With internet porn, dating apps, and cam sites on the rise after 2010, the kind of exciting entertainment that customers would come see in person became an isolated experience for men, all alone in their bedrooms. Times had changed and dancers had to work harder to make their money.

Overall, dancing changed my life in many positive ways. I learned a lot about myself and a lot about society along the way. Dancing helped me to have a place to live and food too eat. Dancing built up my self confidence.

With the money that I made in a few weeks when I first started dancing, I was able to stash it away, and in secret, leave my abusive boyfriend and get my own apartment. I was finally free from the pain and abuse of my former life. I began to live again.

Much more than that, dancing became a way of life. I wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything in the world.
