Why put a positive spin on this?
I had thought, “Surely this can’t be a good thing. This is sexual objectification of women.” I assumed most women who went into this would not be doing it for good reasons and would not have choices. What surprised me is that the dancers whom I interviewed for the most part were doing it very self-consciously as a way to finance a longer-term, often educational goal. Stripping is the most lucrative legal profession to a young woman who doesn’t have a higher education.
It’s safe to say that it remains sexual objectification of women, regardless of how much the woman is raking in. So let me re-iterate: “Surely this can’t be a good thing.”
