What’s your name?
Felonii (like a felony assault charge)
What part(s) of the industry do you work in?
How did you get started in the industry?
I originally went to be a shot girl at a strip club in Hawaii after I got out of the army and the owner literally threw me on stage and said you’d do better as a dancer and made me just try it and I loved it. Never looked back.
Tell us about your favorite shift or customer ever!
This was actually recently, it’s my favorite because it’s so funny. I did a private dance and this guy had me milly rock for him 😂😂😂
Do you have any pets? We love pets, please tell us about them!
Two dogs! A golden retriever named whiskey and a pitbull named goose
How have you made yourself stand out when working?
I do the dominatrix thing and they love it. I have a very firm and almost mean and demanding tone with men and it works for me
What is your funniest story related to work?
I once went to audition at a club and they told me the pole was static so I jumped onto it assuming I had to use my body to spin around, they were wrong. The pole spun. I was spinning so fast I couldn’t stop so I had to let go and I fell about 5 feet to the ground in front of about 30 people I was like Oopsie lmao
What are some of your favorite things and hobbies outside of work?
Me and my husband travel A LOT. We love going new places and just getting away.
What is a goal you’re proud you were able to reach while doing and because of SW?
I now have disposable income to be able to have a very flexible life and that has made me and my husband very happy. It gives me freedom to spend more time at home and take more trips.
What is something you feel needs to change in the industry?
The overall expectation of females in SW. just because we take our clothes off for money does not mean we want to sleep with you and doesn’t mean you can speak to us in any capacity. I feel like that has been an issue for years and years and unfortunately there’s no end in sight.
There is a lot of talk nowadays about sex work being “empowering.” Is this true for you and why or why not?
Yes. I have always felt on top of the world here. We literally dictate our income. If I don’t want to dance for someone, I simply don’t have to. I get paid to look how I look, it’s a wonderful feeling.
What is your best tip for making money at work?
Eye contact!!! Like firm and direct eye contact.
Do you have any industry "life hacks" to share?
Pole grip on the bottoms of new pleasers saves you from slipping!
How do you make customers feel special and keep coming back for more?
I try to remember returning customers personal things like the names of their kids, birthdays, job promotions, ect. It makes them feel like I actually listen and it creates a bond
What has been your biggest challenge in the industry and how do you cope with that?
People asking how my husband can be okay with me being a dancer. They don’t understand that it’s a job and that’s it. I just literally ignore it and let them think whatever bc me and my husband are very secure with my job.
We all have a story about a babe in the industry who we loved and were inspired by from the moment we met her- tell us about her/them:
There was a girl in Hawaii, at my first club. Her name is Ziva. She was everything I wanted to be as a dancer. Sexy, flexible, beautiful and body to stop traffic. She knew so many tips and tricks and had been dancing for years at that point. She really motivated me. She was so happy to help also when most girls there gage me the cold shoulder.
What do you wish people knew about us, and about you personally as a SWer?
We don’t want your men. If your husband isn’t supposed to be here that’s on him. We do our job. Please don’t come into the club and call us names when we have no idea what he has going on in his personal life.
How have you dealt with the stigma of being out as a SW, if you’ve faced any?
Constantly. It’s always something thinking I do more, guys trying to pay me for sex, women assuming I’m after their man, people questioning my relationship with my dad ect
What are your plans for the future (can be related to the industry or not!)?
Finish my second degree and work in the funeral service industry!
What advice would you give younger you, if you could, both work related and in general?
Do what you want sooner, don’t let the opinion of others stop you and hold you back.
