View Full Version : Speaking of visible bruises...

Amber mentioned them in her thread on makeup.

We get bruises all the time in this line of work. Stage work, bumping into things, pole routines, and spike heels all contribute to the frequency and severity of the bruises. But it seems that almost invariably, when a customer notices these marks, they feel compelled to ask us quite seriously who was beating on us.

I am curious... Is this honestly the first thing you guys assume when you see a bruise on us?

Honestly speaking, I usually don't bother asking where the dancer got her bruise, unless it looks so bad it has to be from something other than the usual stripclub mishaps.

There are a thousand reasons why any human being has bruises, probably only a very small percentage has anything to do with any abuse. Unless I know the person well, I have no evidence or any factual basis to form any suspicions that her bruises came about from anything deliberate. Thus, a bruise is simply a bruise.

I would not ask her about the bruise, but I would think first that is due to something that could happen to anybody during the everyday life.

I can only remember noticing bruises on dancers a few times. One time, yes, I thought maybe it was from some sort of abuse--she carried herself in such a beaten-down, defeated way and looked so sad...I hope it was just a simple work-related bump. :(

Hmmm... good job Joe, but you missed a few:

Tiny dime-to-quarter size bruises on butt and thies - high heel marks
Burns about face, ears and shoulders - curling iron mishaps while talking on cell phone
Bruises and swelling across forehead - the occasional fall during a pole trick
Scratches down butt - again, those damned spike heels


{Tre's note: And sometimes she just asks for it rough. ;)}
