My first and last lap dance

opinion

De som köpt den här boken har ofta också köpt Becoming av Michelle Obama inbunden. Drawing on original ethnographic research, this book looks at the behaviour and attitudes of lap dancing club customers. Little has been said about customers from a UK perspective and Colosi contracts her findings with the US based literature; the We learn how dancers do their job, manage their identity My first and last lap dance membership of a community, their motivations for 'stripping' overtime, and how women manage the 'players' of the lap-dancing world.

Dirty Dancing provides a truly authentic, detailed and original account by a 'dance-ethnographer' of how the lap-dancing industry sits within the British night time economy. Because the vast majority of studies related to stripping and strippers are confined to the United States, this work offers invaluable insights for both scholars of deviance and comparative criminal justice alike.

Colosi's examination of the lap-dancing subculture proves to be unique and offers an in-depth, insider's perspective of adult entertainment.

In spite of the fact that Colosi was employed as a dancer during the course of her study, she presents her findings in an objective and unbiased manner. Her work is also comprehensive in that it examines lap-dancing from the perspectives of managers, customers, and of course, the dancers themselves.

It is likely that this book will find a strong audience within the disciplines of sociology, human sexuality, and criminal justice and may very well be regarded as a classic in the years to come. For these reasons, I strongly recommend Dirty Dancing. Working and Researching in a 'deviant' Occupation 1.
