Sinopsis

My name is Lux ATL, and I am a mother, wife, business owner, former university instructor, and lifelong stripper. From the halls of academia to the strip club stage, my life as a post-academic feminist sex worker has been filled with unique sociological insight, unforgettable friendships, and a thousand beautiful messes in between. These are my true stories of the highs and lows of an ex-academic and lifelong stripper pole dancing for pay on stages all across the South.

    What’s up, dudes? Thanks for tuning in to Stripcast: True Stories From a Stripper With a PhD.   In today’s episode, I’m going to talk about religion. It’s not something I talk about very much, as my atheism is the number one thing that pisses people off.  But you know what? Today’s episode isn’t about not believing in god. It’s quite the opposite. Today’s episode is about believing, very much, in god.  It’s about me trying to find some redemption as a young teenager. Looking to Jesus for acceptance and love. Being totally sold and drunk on these possibilities.   Yet, at the same time, wondering why I can’t stop wanting this boy and this love.    You can connect with Lux on Facebook at facebook.com/lux.atl or follow Lux on Instagram @lux_atl.   If you enjoyed these true stories from a stripper with a PhD, feel free to share or leave a review on iTunes.

    What’s up, dudes? Thanks for tuning in to Stripcast True Stories From a Stripper With a PhD. Today’s episode is about a man that came to me a few years ago with a proposition to invest in my business. In a major way. At this point, I had a totally different game plan. I was actually planning on opening up a pole studio here in Atlanta. A venture that I am now thankful that I did not pursue. However, at the time it was my great dream. I was putting in so much work at the strip club and socking away money to invest in this business. I figured it was going to take me a year to save 15 grand, but I was willing to do it. Then one day, I met a man at the club, and he promised to change everything for me. You can connect with Lux on Facebook at facebook.com/lux.atl or follow Lux on Instagram @lux_atl.

  • 028: The Black Girl Quota

    028: The Black Girl Quota

    19/10/2016 Duración: 20min

    What’s up, dudes? Thanks for tuning in to Stripcast: True Stories From a Stripper With a PhD.   I grew up in the South. Where I come from, confederate flags fly, and cotton and tobacco fields stretch into the horizon. My homeland is the home for former slaves and former criminals against humanity.   I grew up in the South. I stayed in the South. I stripped in the South. The sins of our fathers do not stop at the strip club door.    In Atlanta, there are two types of clubs. There are black clubs, such as Onyx and Magic City—there are the really famous clubs. Then there are "mixed" clubs like The Cheetah, Oasis, and Pink Pony—places I worked.    These “mixed” clubs are mixed in name alone. At almost any "mixed club," there is a "black girl quota," often unspoken but ever there—a finite number of brown-skinned women allowed to walk these floors. For these women of color, the expectations are higher, and the rewards often lower. Today's episode is about that dynamic.    You can connect with Lux on Face
