Strip Club Journals Unbound April

Katie Sutra is a well known name in the strip club industry for years now. She has been a stripper/dancer in the adult industry for over fifteen years and featuring dancing for four of those years. She has won multiple titles within the strip club industry, starting with Miss Pole Champ USA 2012. This was the door opening moment in her career which lead her to feature dancing. Having never been an adult actress Katie Sutra is an exception to the rule when it comes to feature dancers.

Katie Sutra started stripping right out of high school. Working part time at Publix was not going to get her a house after finishing high school and to where she wanted to be. Although she never took professional dance classes growing up, Katie Sutra was into art, drama, and choir as a child. She utilized these skills when she started stripping and had to get used to being the center of attention.  Pole dancing was something she learned at work, teaching herself during her shifts at the strip club. Also, this was a time when not many dancers did pole tricks. Thus, this was what made her stick out from the rest on stage and in the strip club, besides her cute petite hour glass figure(standing less than five feet tall).

Feature dancing was something Katie Sutra was interested in for years before she actually started. However, the people she interacted with along the way told her it would not be possible to feature dance unless she did at least one porn scene(for over a decade this took place). Knowing this was not the whole truth Katie Sutra continued to work her way to the best of the best in the strip club industry. After winning Miss Pole Champ USA 2012 she went on to win multiple other titles as she also started to feature dance. She had found her way in without having to enter the pornography niche of the adult industry. The odds were not in her favor and the easy way would have been to do a couple porn scenes. However, Katie Sutra stood up for what she believed in and for her own personal boundaries. Yet she still made it to become one of the best of the best. In any industry it is taboo to go against the grain and still reach the top. Even though our whole industry(the adult industry) is taboo, we still have a “normal” progression in a career path in the adult/strip club industry.

Now imagine that there was/is a way to connect with others in the strip club industry nationally, as there is now with Wiazza.com:  “The LinkedIn of the strip club industry.” Had this been around a decade ago perhaps Katie Sutra would have been able to network with other like minded individuals in the strip club industry, which would have allowed her to design her plan of action to become one of the best of the best in a more timely fashion.

Wiazza.com is a brand new social media site. This site was created to be used by the strip club industry exclusively. Djs, bartenders, bouncers, bloggers, journalists, photographers, feature dancers, strippers, traveling strippers, door girls, cocktail waitresses, recovering strippers, and anyone else working in the strip club industry finally has a platform to utilize each others knowledge and information about the industry. A platform to meet other individuals in the strip club industry we would otherwise have no access to.

Many small town strip clubs do not provide the opportunity to meet the diversity found in the strip club industry nationally. What if you are new to the strip club industry and would like to try traveling, where would you turn/start? Well, now finally dancers/strippers have the opportunity to network not just in person, but also online in order find the information they desire. Long money is the goal when working in a strip club, (though it is hard to see when you are nude in plastic six inch heels). The stigma of the strip club industry will follow you for a lifetime. The degree will varying depending on the position you held in the strip club industry and the person/people you are addressing. Therefore, it is our own responsibility to monetize the strip club industry as much as possible in our favor and work smarter rather than harder(pun intended).

Make connections and monetize your career in the strip club industry in as many ways as possible. Not all money or exposure is going to be made in the black lights of a club for the best of the best. If you have not seen or heard what others are experiencing in the industry than how do you know your experience is as amazing as it could be, even if it is great now in your point of view.

Make connections, get exposure, monetize your career, and make some friends along the way! http://www.Wiazza.com

Features Traveling To Success In The Adult Industry

Thoreau-Quote1
 
Traveling is a large part of the equation of becoming one of the best of the best in the adult industry. Creating a large fan base adds to a feature dancer’s value. Thus, why feature dancers often travel on a regular basis. The world recognizes and sees the talent, skill, and beauty feature dancers embody when on stage, but often forget to remember this “glamorous life” comes with a price tag not many can afford.
 
Natasha Nova(@MsNatashaNova) is Miss Pole Champ USA 2015(crowned by the amazing Vayda Kiss in May) and EDI East Newcomer of the Year 2015. After seven years in the adult industry, she has just started getting her feet wet in feature dancing on the east coast. Natasha Nova is still in the transition of going from having a home club, to venturing out of her comfort zone and state on a regular basis. However, she has been quick to catch on to the ways of the adult industry and how one must seize the moment. Probably due to her background working for a marketing firm before she entered the adult industry. Winning Miss Pole Champ USA 2015 and EDI East Newcomer of the Year 2015 was perhaps the easy part for Natasha Nova, the hard part is making the most of it career wise. When new to the adult industry on a national and international level we all make mistakes, but we have to make the most of them and be open to learning and trying new things/places.
 
In Natasha Nova’s recent travels, she has embraced the travel/tour life by not only working, but experiencing the places and sights she sees along the way, she refers to herself as an “experience junkie.” The beginning of a feature dancing career is when it is easy to get excited to see all things new. Jacquie the Costume lady who custom designs, one of a kind, outfits for many feature dancers within the adult industry has found another great customer. This is a new chapter in life for Natasha Nova, which she will remember and cherish for a lifetime. People dream of being where she is now. Unfortunately, the novelty of traveling in the adult industry wears off after time, but is always a blessing to be thankful for. Seeing the world is a privilege most people will never know. Natasha Nova is aware of this privilege and is wholeheartedly embracing it. Although, she does already admit to missing her two dogs when she is on the road and personal relationships being more difficult.
 
Simone DanaLustrous(@LoveSimone) has been in the adult industry for ten years and a feature dancer for five of those years. She is two time Miss Nude Entertainer of the Year(2014 and 2015) and two time Miss Nude North America(2012 and 2013). With the time and wisdom that comes with growth within the adult industry on a national and international level, she radiates passion and tenacity even through email.
 
“No one takes into account that we have lives behind the smiles and sequins.” ~Simone DanaLustrous
 
Simone DanaLustrous is more than willing to admit the sacrifices she continues to make in order to be successful as a feature dancer. Leaving her child behind most weekends, not being there for important moments for family/friends, and not having good luck with relationships because men often cannot deal with an independent woman in the adult industry who is not around most the time.  However, she is compassionate enough to not blame others for their need to have her as an active participant in their life and their big moments.
 
“Either way, people’s opinion of me and my work is not going to stop me from doing it. I love it too much to quit.” ~Simone DanaLustrous
 
Those of us in the adult industry have to understand we value things differently than most people because we have chosen to have an uncommon career. We cannot apologize for the way we choose to live our lives. Simone DanaLustrous has taken this understanding to a new level, we cannot short change people in personal relationships of what they desire and need.
 
This understanding is the root of the demand for adult entertainers. Thus, if we are honest with ourselves job security is a payoff of this need. Human beings need people around us to care about us and share our lives with. Who are adult industry entertainers supposed to share their lives with though? They are so busy catering to the needs of others for a living, while traveling the nation and trying to have their own personal life to top it off.
 
Justice(@Justiceofvan), Miss Nude Canada 2015, has been extremely busy in the past few weeks traveling to fulfill her duties as Miss Nude Canada 2015 and making other appearances. She did take the time out to answer a few questions, as an entertainer always should make time for their fan base and/or an opportunity to increase their fan base. Justice also is facing the challenges of having a lasting relationship while existing in the adult industry. She just ended a ten-year relationship. However, she did tell me that she would like to be a stay at home mom after she finishes with the adult industry. We all have different end games in the adult industry and they change throughout our careers and with our experiences.
 
The grass is not always greener in stilettos.
