This book blew the doors of peep shows and strip clubs wide open! I always wondered what the fascination with those joints were and Elisabeth Eaves does an excellent job with filling me in on it. From her nerve-wracking try out for the job all the way to her maturation of why she did it in the first place, I loved every minute of it! Her attention to detail was impeccable and I found myself feeling not only what she was feeling, but also what those around her were feeling. A great read for anyone who is looking for something different and engaging.

I enjoyed this book because it explored sexual politics in a way you don't see done very often. It's not just about women trading money for a nude dance. It's about all the other things that they, and many women, trade on a day to day basis. It's still all too common for women out in the 'real' (ie, non-peep show) world to go around calculating what their 'worth' is. The author shows that. She doesn't offer any easy or comforting answers.

The author carries us into a weird world with great confidence and skill. I took this book on vacation with me and read it straight through. Since I finsihed it, I keep thinking about the characters. Really good stuff.

I picked this book up because I liked the idea of finding out what goes on inside a peep show. I kept reading because it was an eye opener about sexuality and relationships between men and women. (I'm a guy.) I know the author doesn't speak for all women or all nude dancers, but I really feel like I learned something. I highly recommend this book.

While parts of this book made me feel a little bit uneasy (I realized that I am more prudish than I thought I was), I found it engrossing and really interesting throughout. Not just the scenes in the 'Lusty Lady,' but the scenes outside of it as well... there is one really great part where they hold a management meeting and you realize that these exotic dancers have to deal with the same kinda bureaucratic silliness that I deal with at my job as a 5th grade teacher. Hillarius!

I liked this book until about halfway through. It was a real awakening to the world of exotic dance, and it breaks a lot of stereotypes. I read this because I wanted something in the field of my major that was not dry reading. About halfway through, it gets a little slow and I just put it down after awhile. Never the less, it is something that I am glad I have picked up.
