Hey, why no shirt? It’s 10-below outside! It’s hot at the Penthouse Executive Club, where the exotic dancers have started giving striptease lessons.
You’re quitting your day job to become a stripper? No, this is for my boyfriend’s eyes only! “I just wanted to try it,” says Diana, a marketing exec in her thirties. “Not all women are comfortable with their bodies, and it’s fun to unleash things you may be inhibited about.”
One-on-one instruction—or are you taking it off for everyone to see? You can do it with a group of friends or individually. It’s a bonding experience—kind of like a slumber party. “It’s just more down-and-dirty,” explains Jen, 32, a voice-over actress.
But who needs lessons to take your clothes off? “You have to have confidence to perform a striptease,” says DeAngela, who’s been stripping for eleven years—and recommends using ice cubes whenever possible. “You have to know your inner beauty to be secure enough to perform.” Yeah, baby.
