Product Description

Review

'A rare opportunity to the hear performers' voices above the din of sex industry propaganda.' - Kat Banyard, author of The Equality Illusion

About the Author

JENNIFER HAYASHI DANNS was born and raised in Liverpool. Whilst studying for a BA (Hons) degree in Marketing at the University of Liverpool, she spent two years working in the lap dancing industry. Jennifer worked as a Marketing Planner for a Times 100 Best Small Company. She is passionate about women's rights and, as a Nichiren Buddhist, believes that every human life is precious. She lives in Richmond, Surrey, with her husband Hiro. SANDRINE LEVEQUE worked as Campaign Manager on OBJECT's 'Stripping the Illusion' campaign between 2007 and 2010, which concluded successfully with the British Government's passing of legislation that gave councils greater control over the lap dancing industry. She now lives in France and runs her own business, Groova, a movement, music and well-being brand.

Format: Paperback
Without a shadow of a doubt, this book has completly changed my view on not only the women who dance in these establishments, but the people who run them and the patrons who visit them and I am extremley glad I had the pleasure of reading it.
Firstly, I had always imagined there would be some degree of a competitive nature within the clubs with the women striving to get dances to make money, but reading some of the experiences some of the women had the courage to talk so frankly and openly about (which I personally found incredibly couragous and quite honestly shocking)not only opened my eyes but made my jaw drop!
The general feelng I got reading the accounts most of the women gave, was they were not treated as women, but, to quote one particular section "wheeled over like a prize cow" to cater to patron's fantasies which I felt must have been degrading for these women, and their bravery is nothing but comendable.
I particularly found the different perspectives the book's strongest point, as it not only broke down the book into 'bite size' chunks, but each woman's perspective being different gave a much deeper insight into the reality of this industry, which can be as shocking as well as interesting and I read the book pretty much one go (a first for me!!) .
Any young women who are thinking of wanting to enter this industry for the glamour, sparkle and attention I emplore you to read this book.
I doubt you'll find a more open, honest, direct and reslistic depection of how these places can run and how the women are treated. You will not only get one account but many from these brave women.
The title speaks for itself.
Mrs Hayashi Danns and Ms Leveque should be very proud, as well as all the people who contributed also.
An absolutle 10/10.

Format: Paperback
I sometimes find with books of this nature that these books are written heavily from one perspective but what was interesting to see is that this book contained an number of different narratives from different starting points giving a good overview of an industry that is often only encountered in person or through the media - which seemingly has a flawed perspective on the industry.

The book is effectively split into two sections: The first being a number of personal reflections from dancers, punters and people who have had contact with the lap dancing industry; the second part is an Analysis of the industry looking at whether it should fall under 'Entertainment or exploitation'.

I have recommended this book to several of my friends. I'm sure everyone has an opinion on lap dancing clubs but without all the facts can these opinions be as valid?

Format: Paperback
A well balanced and fascinating insight on a delicate subject and industry that is too keenly trivialised or blindly accepted in today's society as entertainment.
Until I read this book I had no idea how shallow my understanding was and how blind I have been to the reality and effects of lap dancing.

A thrilling and enjoyable read. Everyone should read this book.

I read this book in one session as I found it fascinating. I hope that any young women thinking of entering this industry supposing it to be glamorous, will think again after reading this.

This book is fantastic, shocking but fantastic!
Having never been in a lap dancing club myself, I was curious to learn what really goes on. This book gave true accounts from women affected by this industry. I would suggest that anyone who believes that lap dancing is cool and glamourous should read this book and challenge that belief. Although at times I was repelled by the content, this book is 'un-put-downable' and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to become more aware of this industry.
