It's a common theory: women strip to pay for college. These high-brow intellectuals find themselves strapped for cash, so they decide to un-strap their clothes. Was that pun a stretch? Well, whatever. The question is, do women really begin stripping in college to pay for their education, and if so, should you?
Stripping in College: Fact or Fiction?
While I can't speak for all strippers--or all college girls for that matter--I can share with you a personal anecdote about one of my favorite strippers ever. No, I didn't meet her in a strip club, and I've actually known her for about thirteen years now.
Let's call her Emily. When I met Emily she was a 23-year-old college Sophomore majoring in Physics. Crazy smart. When she was 20 she started dancing at a local club and did really well. A talent scout for a Tokyo strip club saw her and invited her to dance in Japan.
Emily took the job, and spent a wild summer in Tokyo. When she came back to the States she stripped for awhile longer, saved a ton of money, then put herself through college. Right now she's finishing up her Med School residency and is officially an M.D.
So yes, stripping in college is a reality for some women. Other girls, not so much. Maybe they're stripping because it's fun or because they need to support their families or both. If a girl tells you she's stripping to pay for college, she might be telling you the truth. Then again, maybe she's not.
