I think the politics of stripping are very simple and honest. It was my plan since high school. I think women who strip are enlightened in a certain way. I was 19 at the time and attending my freshman year at SVA. I planned on immersing myself in the stripping subculture and documenting it. It wasn't as out in the open as it is now.

They are in tune with their sexuality; they are confident and a bit rebellious. It's an exchange of energy; one being the energy that money brings and another the energy of fantasy and lust.

They are often above average intelligence and usually are very creative. The culture is a lot more acceptable these days.
