When I was 20 I was going through a lot of crazy, grandiose phases. My judgement is a bit impaired & this was definitely one of my most erratic decisions.
Reason being is because (aside from years of curiosity of how it's really like compared to the media) I was booted from my job at Wal-Mart (I hated it there), & the fact that I had lost my job gave me an excuse to get a "new one," that being stripping.
It's riveting at first, but after a while it declines to where you feel like crap, you're emotionally taxed enough, & you find out the definition of first-world slavery is being treated like an employee as an independent contractor. That's probably the biggest workers' rights issue I picked up from that.
Once my CNA license finally got on the registry, I was able to get a job at a home health place, & stopped stripping.
As far as what I did with my money, I can say this...
-took my little brother to the amusement park for his 16th birthday.
-got my first SmartPhone
-was able to pay for my philanthropy trip to Louisiana, which in turn helped me get to know wholesome people & refresh my track on life.
-pay for 2 college courses that my parents didn't have to pay for & were able to help me graduate on time.
The only person who knows about me stripping is my brother, because I told him in confidence after it was all said & done.

I'm not too sure about the other guys here but I HAVE dated 3 strippers and one ended up being something seriously even if it was a STR. There's a lot of trust and communication that has to be enforced and applied to the relationship. I wouldn't care if the girl stripped in the past and doesn't anymore. Go to Las Vegas and I promise you that the strippers there many are students in a university trying to pay off student loans and many of which are quite smart. You've got your CNA, that's awesome! You are trying to better yourself and if a guy cannot understand your circumstances and reasons as to why you choose to strip then maybe he's not all that bf material you may have thought he was. Being a bf to a stripper was no easy task, it's a lifestyle that one is not ready for and patience is key. This is your past focus on your future. You shouldn't have to be judged and criticized about your past when they weren't even there to begin with. I hope to have helped.1
