Stripcast: True Stories from a Stripper with a PhD
About This Show
My name is Lux ATL, and I am a mother, wife, business owner, former university instructor, and lifelong stripper. From the halls of academia to the strip club stage, my life as a post-academic feminist sex worker has been filled with unique sociological insight, unforgettable friendships, and a thousand beautiful messes in between. These are my true stories of the highs and lows of an ex-academic and lifelong stripper pole dancing for pay on stages all across the South.

I’ve talked a lot about stripping and falling in and out of love with sex work, but I haven’t talked a lot about my time falling in and out of love with professional intellectualism--so today, I want to talk about that. Today's episode is about the first time when I quit my life as a full-time stripper to commit myself to a "respectable" life, dove into scholarship, and brought my punk-rock, stargazer boyfriend along for a ride—a ride that may not have been the one he signed up for.
