Abstract:

"With a recent burst of feature films, documentaries, and books on strippers, the business of exotic dancing is hotter than ever. Over the last decade, there has been a steadily expanding interest in exotic dance, from its role as an art form to its benefits as a means of exercise." "Egan, Frank, and Johnson explore the complex experiences of producing and consuming exotic dance. Their goal in this book is to move beyond stalemated debates about the victimization and empowerment of strippers. The essays here provide a firsthand look at the world of exotic dancing and strip bare workplace policies and conditions, legal restrictions, customer behavior, and the persistent stereotypes associated with the profession. Book jacket."--Jacket.
