"I Really Like Your Booty Because There Are No Holes in It".

Yes, this was actually said to me tonight.:-)

When I started this blog, I wanted to alternate between writing about my very distant past and the present.  I've been busy lately. I've felt like my present hasn't been too interesting.  I also knew if I went over a week without writing, I would lose the rhythm or schedule I had planned for myself.  (The following is what I have been doing lately:).  I have started rehearsals for a pole dance recital that I will be in on March 31st.  I get to be a boy.  We are being paired off and little ol' barely 100lbs me, gets to be a boy.  How did that happen?  It happened because I was the only one out of 12 dancers who was capable of demonstrating an aerial shoulder mount that night.  There were others who said they could do it, or that they would be able to do it by/before 3/31 (recital date).  Now I am OK with this boy stuff.  But what got to me was that the "boys" will be dancing barefoot.  BAREFOOT!!  In the almost 30 years that I have been dancing, I have danced barefoot to only one song for a period of a couple of months.  In most clubs, dancing barefoot is strictly not allowed!  Not only that, but I'm the tiniest one in this thing!  And..we have to flip our "girl" on to the pole using only our wrists/hands!  Most of those girls are a lot bigger than me and my right wrist had issues for nearly 8 months.   It's OK now and I would like it to stay that way, thanks.

So, this is what I've been doing.  It's more grueling than sexy.  I'm extremely fit at this point in time and learning a lot of new pole stuff.  It's maddening, but fun.

So about not having "holes" on my butt.  One of the clubs I work in is a club in which the clientele is mostly Latin.  Many of them were raised speaking Spanish, so their English isn't perfect.  Most of the women that work in the club are also Latin  They all want to look like Kim Kardashian, hence there are a lot of fake bootys in this club.  So this man pointed to another dancer with round, full, firm, fake booty (but slightly flabby hamstrings) and said "I mean your booty and legs don't look like that".  I am taking this as a compliment.

Another dancer and I were talking about the weirdness of our club.  It's been hit by the economy, just like all the others.  However, it has the potential to be the best club to make money without ever having to take your clothes off.  I make more money here than I do at the topless clubs I work in.  But for some reason most of the Latins guys I encounter really feel the need to grab what they are not suppose to grab during a dance.

Hmm...maybe it's just me..


  1. I think you should take the comment as a compliment. He obviously meant that you have a very lovely derrière. Good on you!

  2. Oh, I did. Just thought it was cute, the words he chose because of his broken English:-)
