When hit, I was depressed and alone, so I started a group chat on Instagram called Black Butts in Portland, Oregon. We were originally just sharing memes and laughing togher, but it quickly turned into a discussion about how we had all been treated and what our experiences were as sex workers. It was like a lightbulb went off. Our issues were so similar, and they weren’t due to a lack of trying on our part. Strip club clientele has been shrinking for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim if you aren’t riding with us now don’t be riding with us when we become the Champions shirt past couple of decades, and clubs are doing everything they can to blame that shift on everyone except themselves. What the clubs don’t see is that the people spending money on sex work aren’t Wall Stre execs in suits anymore. Now it’s fun queer folks who want to go out and see a good show. They want to have a sexpositive experience that is cultured and nuanced and sexual and exciting.
