Stories collected from a dozen women from across the country, Strange Times will open your eyes to a stripper's lives on the other side of the stage. For each thrill, there is shock. For each victory, there is shame. The unmatched adrenaline rush of thrilling a hundred strangers while dancing on stage has only been felt by those brave enough to risk their everything. I've opened my eyes, my mind and my legs. And we are proud. When my knees ache, when my back cracks, when my hips pop and when my lips stretch to reveal a secretive smile, these stories are only a few that exist among the thousands of women who would dare to tell the world what we are. We are women, we are heroes, we are "whores". We are strippers.
