OK, this actually goes beyond annoying me into pissing me off. People in this country are so hung up about sex it is amazing. I am proud of the two weeks I worked as a stripper. Yes, I said stripper, not exotic dancer. I took my clothes off to music for money. I am proud of this fact. The only thing that kept me from pursuing this line of work was the fact that the girls smoked pot in the back room and the bathroom. I couldn't get away from it. The stuff gives me a killer headache and I did not need to bring home a contact high to Ayla who I was breast feeding at the time.
Anyway, I am getting so tired of hearing how shocked people are because women turn to the "oldest profession" in order to support themselves and thier families. Did you know that the majority of the women I met in the one little club had children? They were usually single parent families as well.
I am so sick and tired of people trying to say that adult bookstores and strip clubs are bad. I think prostitution should be legal. I mean, heel, it is my body. I should be able to sell it if I want to. I mean, it is ok for me to give sex away, but I can't sell it. Go figure. A woman can shack up with a man and "pay" rent with sex and that is not illegal, but the minute money actually changes hands, you have a problem. How is that any different? She is still being paid for the sex by being given a place to live.
I am going to make sure that my girls do not grow up to be prudes. If they want to run around the house naked, then they can. If they want to have sex with people, then as long as it is safe, then more power to them. They will know all the possible consequences of sex. I am sick of how people raise thier children to be so prudish. It is really not healthy.
Ok, rant done. I am NOT sorry if this offends, though it is not meant to. I say people need to open up thier eyes and thier minds. Being afraid of your body and sex is not healthy. It causes many problems. I plan on taking my daughters to any strip club they want when they are old enough. I will even tell them of my brief stint as a stripper. My girls will NOT be prudes!!!!

I am totally pro-choice when it comes to abortion. I think that it should be the woman's choice what to do with her body. If a woman wants to abort a child, fine. If a woman wants to strip at a club, I see no problem with it. If a woman chooses to do prostitution, there is certainly a market for it out there.
I, however, would make a terrible stripper. I also don't want the life that seems prevelant in most strippers careers. Pot, drugs, always having to look perfect, competition with other hot strippers, those really tight outfits, etc.
Just be aware that all of us prudes out here aren't so bad.
Hehehe, I would not have called you a prude, love. *grins* You may not be as... free(?) as me about some things, but you are far from prudish. Besides, making a guy blush is fun. *evil grin* It's really cute too. *wink*
As for the abortion thing, I am of two minds about that. I agree that it is a woman's choice. I do. But I could never do it myself. I think itis killing a child that did nothing worng. I will never, ever tell a woman that she was wrong for aborting the baby. I just think it should NOT be used as a form of birth control, and too many women use it just for that.
And on the prostitution thing, I think that if it were leagl we would have fewer rapes. One argument I have heard is that legalized prostitution would mean more infidelity. So what? If the guy is not getting it at home, why shouldn't he look elsewhere? I mean, hell, sex is sex. It is not all that important. The feelins involved in it are.
I was taught that there is sex, fucking, and making love. Sex you do with a friend, fucking with a stranger, and making love is with the person you care for the most. I don't care who Chance has sex with or fucks because I know that he makes love to me. I know that he will always come home to me. That he loves me. That is all I care about. As long as he uses protection, he can screw anyone he wants to. *shrugs*
Like i said before, I think this nation is too hung up on sex. It comes from being founded by a bunch of religious sects. Ok, done rambling. *grins*
