Times Are Tough, Moms -- Get Naked!

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Radical Mommy: Right now, times are pretty tough. But if things got any worse, there is no doubt in my mind that I would get naked and shake my moneymaker for dollar bills ... or loose change (which is all I think my current bod would elicit) to support my family. Currently, I am lucky enough to have a job that I love. But should that ever come to an end, and if I couldn't get another job where I made enough money to support my family, I would march right into the nearest strip joint and beg for an audition. And I think all other moms should too.

I know that all you high-on-your-horse, holier-than-thou supermoms are judging me, but let me tell you something -- if you wouldn't strip down to make sure that your kids have a roof over their head and food in their tummies, then I am the one judging you. Bad mommies!

I'm not saying that you have to give lap dances in a dingy back room. But I am saying that if someone would hire you and you could make enough money to feed your kids and get back on your feet, then it is your responsibility as a mother to make friends with a pole. Anything else is bordering on negligent.

Now I know that by no means would this be the ideal job, but if you could make $300 a day and only have to work three or four days a week then I think it's a no-brainer.

As for not being a good role model -- I think that's bull****. I think that the mother who would do this as a last resort for her family is an absolute hero -- someone who should be commended, applauded and respected for doing whatever it takes to get by.

I was really curious to see how far other moms would go if they were in a financially dire situation, so I turned to the momlogic community and asked members to weigh in. Would they ever strip to support their family??

I was really surprised by what these women had to say. Many of the women who responded said that although it wouldn't be their first choice, they would do it for their family.

Oh and did I say abundantly BLESSED! But if I ran out of all that and had no other options ... show me the pole.

Joan Olson wrote: Yep, I actually know a stripper and she works in a not so sleazy place where lap dances are not allowed -- she simply dances the pole (so to speak). She makes a fortune, only has to work a few nights a week, supports her family, has a nice home and car. Her kids want for nothing. They know she is a dancer -- but not a stripper (they are young) She used to work a "normal" job, but was laid off, which was just as well. She used to rely on daycare to raise her kids, now she raises them herself. She also used to be broke a lot and stressed -- now she is not. She does not go home with these men -- they go home to their wives LOL. She is just an entertainer who just happens to be naked. I would do it if I had the body for it.

Ethansi wrote: In a two-second response, yes I would, but if I really were to think about it, no. My sister-in-law did it for awhile and the money was great, but it took a toll on her emotionally and she isn't the same person I knew. It ruined her relationship and it ruined her self-worth.

Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.
