Go Over the Part about How He Recognized her Again, Please "Lit up by a series of blacklights that reflect off walls splashed with neon Jackson Pollack-esque paint, a student dancer who calls herself Portia spins around on a pole at Night Moves in Bloomington. As she strips, her panties accidentally come undone in front of one of her professors who's visiting the club. Suddenly, Portia's dual identity of student by day, stripper by night, is as exposed as her privates.

She's one of 10 students among the club's 35

dancers, working to earn enough money in tips to cover books and tuition.

Though tips can be high, working as a dancer while being a full-time student still has its downsides, from both a social and an academic perspective.

Balancing herself upside down while spreading her legs on a pole appears to be easier than balancing working late at night and getting up early for class.

'It's hard to get up for your 8 a.m. after giving lap dances until 3:30 a.m.,' said Portia, a junior. 'By the time you get home, it's almost time for class.' "

"Her ex-boyfriend's dad came in as well but, instead of leaving upon recognizing his son's ex, paid her for three lap dances and asked her not to tell his son about it."

I think this is the topper of the article. Though I'm impressed that the women seem to think the professors are disappointed in them, rather than probably mortified to be seen at a strip club.

Not exactly my bag, but really, everyone involved should grow up.

Several students at the community college where I taught reportedly worked at a nearby strip club over the years, but as far as I know their instructors never saw them there. Notice I said, "as far as I know."

Portia? Must be an English major.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that you could identify any coed at your college just by looking at her muff, you rascal.

I'm shocked at that comment!

I thought all strippers were "working their way through college."
