23 Stripper Innovations

 - Jan 14, 2009
Stripping is well-known for being a sexy and erotic form of entertainment. Unlike prostitutes who are paid for sex, strippers earn money by arousing sexual desires and fantasies. Although topless bars, strip-teases and full nude dancers are often the source of marital and significant other spats, they are also a source of inspiration and innovation.

Let’s face it, not all humans come with the grace, strength and agility or ‘know-how’ of erotic dancing. However, there has been a growing trend in those wanting to learn how to dance like a stripper, whether for fun or exercise.
