How about the Stripper Success Secrets.. Part 1 and Part 2 that is sold via

Has anyone besides me read these e-books and what do you think?

What about the eBooks @ http://www.inhispocket.com/modules.php?name=Books

or any other books...?

What have you read and what do you think of it?

Stripper Success Secrets is great. Thank God I read that when I first started dancing. I also got some great advice via email from Georgia Lawrence which really helped me stay in the business. I used to really let the guys who were looking for hookers get to me. I would actually waste my time lecturing those stupid guys. Georgia told me to just say "I don't work outside of the club, but let me know if you change your mind about a lap dance" - and then walk right over to the next guy without batting an eyelash. Best advice anyone ever gave me. I'll have to check out In His Pocket. I've never heard of that one.

Is In His Pocket as good as Stripper Success Secrets? In his pocket seems to be tailored to escorts not strippers; and is also linked to a site that claims to help john's get more bang for their buck. I also was not able to get to the reviews part of the site and the freebee chapter didn't say much of anything.

Just thought that the "in his pocket" books might have something in them to help us get more dollars out of a guys pocket without much effort... that's all.

I'm always looking for ways to be able to get maximum pay for less work basically. Don't worry... I'm also ready "sales" type of books as well.

I read about this book someplace. maybe it was Jane Mag ? I would love to get it as well.

AussieVee-I'm with you on always trying to find out a better way to get "in his pocket". I was just wondering if anyone knows if the book is worth the money? I thought that the freebie 1st chapter was just a bunch of mumbojumbo. Does anyone know if there are there any good pieces of advice that would make buying the book worthwhile?

To those of you who have read the Stripper Sucess e-books I have a couple of questions.

As some one wanting to break into the business, are these books worth the price?

Is the information in it relevant and helpful?

Which was more useful, the first or second one?

Actually, I've read life behind the garter and it was so incredibly badly written, I swear I could've done better myself... and I wouldn't have used double space and 14 font either

10-11-2003, 04:12 PM
Thanks for the warning Bella21. Nothing pisses me off more then wasting money.

Does any one know about the exotic dance lessons site and if those products are any good?

10-12-2003, 06:05 PM
Actually, I disagree with Bella. I read Life Behind the Garter and she leaves out some important points. First of all, I appreciated the larger font and spacing. The book is well over 200 pages as it is. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. The author tells true stories about dancers and you can tell that dancers contributed. Also, he wove in the true story of a serial killer who is currently stalking strippers in his area. It made me feel like there are a lot of dancers out there who are a lot alike. It also portrays us as real people, not trash. It tells about the students, the good single moms and the other GOOD people who become dancers. My copy has been read by 12 other dancers in my club. Only one didn't like it, and she's really new.

10-12-2003, 09:45 PM
Ok, but did it give advice for dancers starting out or was it just a biography?

10-13-2003, 03:13 AM
Does anyone know if it's sold at Barnes and Nobles yet?

10-13-2003, 04:21 AM
hey passionpup62,
i couldn't help but notice that you are new and only posted in 2 threads about this book...
are you a troll working for the author...?
i could be wrong... Just curious...

Hi Raven - no, not working for the author, although I wish I lived in that part of the country - I'd work in his club! I have emailed him and he did email back - just want to be honest here. I had been looking for this site for a couple of months, since before I read the book. I read a lot of postings before actually doing one myself. A lot of people get their heads bit off it they don't sound like they know what they're talking about, on other message boards I've been on. Just cautious. I really did enjoy the book. I found it educational, but not really a "how to" book like someone was asking about. As I said, most people like it; some don't. I would say that's the case with every book John Grisham writes, too.

GEEZE (Is that how you spell it?) What is the deal with this book? There is no middle road - people either loved it or hated it. Okay, maybe I'm middle of the road. I liked it - it does have big type, but that didn't bother me because it was pretty long. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it, but I liked another one better. Gotta find it in the mess that is my bedroom and I'll let you know. It's not on the list. Garter is a good, easy read. Buy one for the club and pass it around like we did.

I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to anyting to do with stripping/pole dancing/lap dancing etc etc so I will try to track down some of these books.

But one for the Brits... (or those interested in stripping on the other side of the water) have a look at this book: 'Baby Oil and Ice' by Lara Clifton. "Baby Oil and Ice lifts the veil on the shadowy world of pub striptease in London’s East End."

10-16-2003, 07:48 AM
No, it's in no bookstores, I couldn't find info about it other than at amazon.com. It could have worked as a collected memior of girls who had been dancers, but... well everyone knows how I feel about it already... okay I just looked at it. 231 pages... it's double spaced so if it were normally printed, that would be about 115 pages, then there's the huge font.... maybe that takes away... lets be nice and say only 15 pages? So, a 100 page book for $20 plus shipping and handling... I wish I'd known better.

PS: I feel Grisham has great talented and laugh to think of him compared to his book *ha ha ha*

10-19-2003, 05:57 PM
Lacey - I'm glad you liked it too. One of the girls in my club has written the author also, and she is going to submit a great story of hers. It is such a hilarious story - I want to share it but I don't want to steal her thunder. I think his second book is going to be even better, because the girls in this book were only from 2 or 3 clubs - not all over the country. also, I found out that Margie, the housemom in the book, is for real. One of my friends checked out her show and talked to her afterwards. She's just like she is in the book. God! I wish we had a housemom like that. (For those of you who haven't read the book, the housemom is a 250 pound transsexual who is in the final stages of her sex change operation. She does a female-impersonator show called "Lovely Ladies of Broadway.) Anyway - gotta get some sleep! Later girls.

Hi pup. I'm glad you enjoyed the book. I kind of have to agree with Bella on one point. I think he should have hired an editor, but I think with this input, he'll do that on the next one. I just liked the way he was willing to portray us as people with real lives; some of which are clean and honest.
