Why Don’t You Work as an Escort?

            One of the most common questions I get as a stripper is “Do you escort?”  These clients watch me for a while, they tip me a few Lindens and then they IM me asking if I am an escort.  A lot of dancers also work as escorts because the pay is really good for the time invested.  Some girls make as much as 5,000L per 30 minutes, and I’ve heard of others who charge even more.  For comparison, on a good night working at Shemale Heaven and Hell, I will make around 3,000L after working several hours.  I don’t have anything against people who work as escorts, and I don’t speak for anyone but myself.  However, I am adamant, and I will never work as an escort.
            But what’s the difference between stripping and escorting?  As a dancer, I feel like I control the encounter with my client.  A strip club operates under a set of rules; even in Second Life, customers aren’t allowed to touch the strippers (unless the strippers want them to) and strippers don’t have sex with their clients (in the strip club).  So, I touch my clients and I allow them to touch me, but I can always say no or push them away.  However, an escort doesn’t really have that option.  An escort is very often at the whim of his or her client’s desires.  
            More important than that though, is my need for intimacy.  Sex to me is an intimate experience shared between two (or more) people who care about each other.  My lovers have been people who are very special to me.  They respect me and care about me, and I don’t want to cheapen that by turning that experience into a business transaction with some random person with a fist full of Lindens. 
            Another reason that I don’t escort, is that I hate bad, boring sex.  I’m sure you’re reading this thinking, but I’m great at emoting and I write long, detailed descriptions of everything I do.  Bad sex isn’t just poor emoting.  If I don’t feel a connection between myself and the person that I’m with, that’s as bad as the worst emoting I can imagine. 
That’s not to say that I don’t encounter people with terrible emoting skills.  I do, frequently.  One of my great joys as a dancer is when my client and I really get into the roles of dancer and customer.  The teasing, the dirty talking, and the denial of satisfaction combine to create an experience that can be more stimulating that just sex. 
So for me, escorting never really held any interest.  I respect others who do work as escorts, because we all enjoy our lives in different ways.  However, I prefer the intimacy that a lover gives me, rather than the cold hard Lindens that a customer can give.  In the end, it’s about our ability to make our own choices that makes Second Life so freeing.  We are who we want to be.

Slave Auction Group Part 5

My Mistress Storm and I
            The one thing that I regret about my time spent as My Mistress Storm’s slave was that we didn’t spend much time together.  I never felt the sense that I was her slave in a sexual sense.  Don’t misunderstand me.  I know that BDSM is more than sexual, but I did want a sexual or sensual experience with my owner. 
            Perhaps my expectations were too high or unrealistic for the auction.  The contract was very short, only 10 hours.  I wound up extending that to a full week in order to give My Mistress Storm the most for her money.  I felt that I owed it to her, and I never want to disappoint someone who is paying for my service.  It’s a feeling that I think makes me a good stripper. 
            While serving My Mistress Storm, we did discuss BDSM concept such as the meanings behind a collar or a leash.  We discussed what it meant to be a slave.  However, I never got a chance to put those concepts into practice.  My Mistress Storm also had a “do as I say, not as I do” policy as well.  I did feel as though she cared for me and wanted me to be a better slave.
            The time we spent together was not without its fun.  We went shopping several times, which is one of my real passions.  She introduced me to Catawa Hair which is my favorite place to shop for longer hair, but I still prefer Truth.  She also took me shopping for a camsk and slave silks, which was interesting.  My Mistress Storm had experiences with Gorean slavery, but didn’t tell me much about it.  I’ve heard a lot about Gorean culture and I hope to explore it at a future date. 
            The one sensual act that I performed for My Mistress Storm didn’t even involve her.  A friend of hers visited and as My Mistress left she told me to bathe her friend.  I really felt that this was a chance to impress my owner and leave a good impression with her friend.  I bathed him in My Mistress’ bathroom, I teased him and I gave him a thorough washing.  I had a great time and so did he!  However, when My Mistress Storm returned she told me that she’d only been joking about that.  What a let down!
            I don’t want to leave out anything, especially my mistakes.  My Mistress Storm allowed me to stay at her house during the week I was her property.  She gave me rights to drop items and the ability to move and edit objects.  She warned me to be careful, but within the first hour, I some somehow managed to completely wreck her house.  I don’t know what I did, but I misclicked or something and every texture in the house became a default wood grain. 
            I was mortified!  I was almost crying.  I was so terrified that I had ruined everything.  When My Mistress Storm returned, she wasn’t mad.  She took everything in stride and knew that she had made a mistake by giving such a new player those kinds of permissions.  Thankfully, she was able to quickly restore her house and even used my mistake as an opportunity to redecorate.  She had to, since she was forced to remove all the furniture and lay down a brand new copy of her home.  I still feel bad about that mistake.  And I hope when she reads this she realizes how grateful I am for her kindness and understanding.  Many others probably wouldn’t have been as understanding.  Thank you, My Mistress Storm!
            For the sake of honesty, I want to let you know that the pictures included in this post were not taken in the moment, we posed for them.  My Mistress Storm was very kind about allowing me to take pictures of us together, but these pictures don’t represent any actual BDSM play between us.

Why Do You Wear Clothes to a Nude Beach?

            When I started writing about nude and adult beaches in Second Life, one of my friends, Sammi, asked me “Why do you wear clothes to those beaches?”  At first, I thought it was a silly question.  The obvious answer is “Because I wanted to”, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it’s a valid question that should be answered. 
            Even before I started writing this blog, I was visiting different beaches in Second Life.  I love going to the beach.  At the beach, people are always happy as if the sun was just brightening us all.  There’s the sand, the sea, the crashing waves.  It’s a place of relaxation, laying in the sun and getting a tan and talking to your best friend, and excitement, swimming out in the ocean or playing games in the sand.  I have a lot of great memories of the beach.
            In Second Life, I’ve found some great beaches, and I’ve found some terrible ones as well.  Some of the nicest beaches were completely empty, while the bad ones were crowded, and I thought that I could use my blog to bring people to the beaches that I thought were the best.  I also wanted to share my joy of going to the beach, and since my blog has mature themes and subject matter, adult beaches made sense to review.
            However, going to every beach nude is kind of boring visually.  After a while, nudity loses its appeal.  I believe that one of the joys of sex and sensuality is the anticipation of what is to come.  Not only that, but the human body, while beautiful, is even more beautiful with accessories that highlight and accentuate certain aspects.  When I strip, I almost always wear stockings and a garter belt or heels or a corset because I feel that just being nude is boring. 
            Wearing a bikini or swimsuit to a nude beach gives me a way to make the pictures that I take more visually interesting, at least to me.  I also get to advertise for my favorite swimsuit makers like Mon Cheri or Star Fashions.  I wear them because I think they look great, not because I receive any compensation from the swimsuit designers.  Most importantly, wearing the swimsuits gives me a chance to make the pictures that accompany each blog post more interesting for you. 
I don’t really think of this as a fashion blog, but I do like to show off my style a little bit.  I really love to shop for new swimsuits as well.  Like a lot of you, I’m addicted to shopping, and this gives me a great excuse to buy a new bathing suit every week or so. 
So, if you, my readers, don’t mind, I’ll keep wearing bikinis to nude beaches, and maybe every once in a while, if you’re really sweet to me, I’ll take a few nude pictures as well.  However if you really need to see me nude, come by Shemale Heaven and Hell, and I promise you’ll have a great time!

10 Ways To Be A Better Stripper

                I wouldn’t call these rules exactly, but more like guidelines for increasing your tips and just generally having a better time as a stripper in Second Life.  While I am not the most experienced stripper around, I have found that these guidelines have been true and helpful to me.  

  1.  Improve your emoting.  Whether you are an experienced emoter or still a novice, everyone can improve some.  Pay attention to what other dancers at your club are doing when they emote.  And most importantly be open to criticism and feeback.  Finally, use /me when you want to emote.  It’s three extra key strokes but using /me helps tremendously. 
  2. Advertise.  No matter how popular a club is, more patrons will help.  So, advertise for your club.  Add the club to your picks in your profile.  Put a note in your biography that lets casual viewers know where you work.  You’ll be surprised at how this helps improve traffic and your tips. 
  3. Don’t rip off the club.  Whenever a customer tips you directly, you should always tip that into your tip jar, and then let the customer know that in the future he or she should use the tip jar.  The club owner needs his or her cut of your tips to pay for land costs and to improve the club. Remember, if there is no club, you don’t have a place to work. 
  4. Invest in yourself.  Customers will get tired of seeing you in the same outfits again and again.  Try new things: buy new costumes and new lingerie.  When in doubt, try something completely different.  Plus, it’s an excuse to go shopping.  Also, try working on little improvements like matching skin color on feet to your skin if you wear certain kinds of shoes.  Little details like that improve your appearance greatly. 
  5. Treat the customers well.  This should probably go without saying, but since strippers make most of their money directly from customers, we all know that we have to be friendly and flirty.  However, I have had too many experiences at other strip clubs where the dancers don’t even say “hello.”  Also, just because a customer doesn’t tip you this time, doesn’t mean he or she won’t come back and tip you again.  I’ve had several customers return and tip me because I flirted and teased them even when they were broke.  People appreciate kindness, so spread it around! 
  6.   Respect the other dancers.  A certain amount of competition between dancers is healthy and fun, but don’t get carried away.  There is no reason to fight over customers or try to steal customers from other dancers.  I’ll be honest and admit that I get a little jealous when another stripper makes more than me in a night, but I’m also proud that my co-worker is being successful and I want to improve so I can do better the next night.  
  7. Show up for events.  Scheduled Events represent the most expensive part of a strip club owner’s week.  They have to pay for the contest, the DJ, and any other expenses.  If you don’t show up for an event, the club could lose money.  More importantly, events are when a club is the busiest.  It’s a great time to find new regular customers as well as to make big tips.  Don’t skip an event, unless you have to.   
  8. Invest in Events.  This is pretty simple and straightforward, but when your club is doing a themed event, show up dressed for that event.  If it’s a school girl themed event, show up in a cute school girl outfit.  If you’re a new dancer, ask about the events and check the schedule for upcoming events.   
  9. Tip the DJ.  Like dancers DJ’s work for tips.  Some DJs are fortunate and get paid for performing by the hour, but not all of them do.  A good DJ can bring in more customers as well, so that means that the dancers get tipped too.  Everyone wins.  I usually tip 20% of my cut to the DJ at the club at the end of the night.  
  10. Have Fun!  Stripping should be a fun job.  You get to flirt with the customers, the hours are fairly loose and you get to meet all kinds of people.   Do your best to leave your personal problems at home and try to give the customers a great show.  If you’re not feeling well, take a day off. 

I am always learning new things as I continue my journey through Second Life.  I would love to hear your suggestions on ways to improve the quality of stripping in Second Life.  If you are interested in hearing more about one of these topics, I would be happy to write a more detailed article about the subject.
