Hello, sex work-ing folks in Portland! :) I will be living in Portland from August-October. I am guessing that the answers to my questions here will probbbably be summed up with “LOL NO”… But I’m wanting to ask just the same on the off-chance that I’m wrong. So:
Are there any strip clubs in Portland that hire fat dancers? Or even clubs that have employed fat dancers in the past? Are any of you fat strippers working in Portland? Or do you know any fat strippers in Portland who I could talk bizness with?
Some context: I am a fat person (I’m about a dress size 18) who has been working in the sex industry on & off for the past 12 years (mostly in porn and as a pro-switch, but I’ve dabbled in most areas of the industry). I genuinely love dancing, and I’ve always been bummed that strip clubs in San Francisco (and, y’know, in general) are pretty intensely sizeist. I have been told that there are hella strip clubs in Pdx (like, enough of them for there to be a fair amount of diversity amongst them, from what I’ve heard). If any strip clubs in Pdx hire fat dancers, I’d potentially be interested in auditioning.
If the answer to my question is “yes” (again, I’d be kinda shocked if it was, but why not ask): I am additionally wondering about more general audition/work/etc tips.
Also, if you don’t wanna answer me here publically, that is totally cool, feel free to just message me directly.
