Radio Time

In case you missed Stripper Mom’s interview today on WLW 700 am - Cincinnati, Ohio, here’s a link to the podcast.

Well, I thought it was a beautiful thing that you could hear Cole nursing in the background of the radio program today. It was pretty funny (considering I was talking about stripping) to have a baby attached to my breasts.

But it totally brings up one of my biggest points about the difficulty of being a mother AND a sexy woman at the same time. Eddie Fingers and Tracy Jones were talking afterwards about how it was “creepy” to hear Cole nursing during my interview.

Why creepy? Because it’s hard to imagine moms and sexual beings in the same thought? This is the dichotomy that mothers struggle with. We have social expectations to be a good mother, which doesn’t include being a stripper or even having been a stripper.

I’ve got news for you world—if we’re mothers, we have indeed had sex at some point!

And mothers who are strippers do indeed use their breasts for something other than as objects to be viewed.

Actually, if you want to talk about creepy and breast milk…I do remember one stripper at The Hideaway who was lactating who would put shots of breast milk into customers’ drinks. I was only eighteen and quite naïve when I saw this spectacle. I actually asked some customer at the bar, “What is she doing?!”

He thought this was quite funny.

I can’t remember if this was the same stripper who also put lit matches around her nipples and swung them around in flaming circles…

Ah, the good old days…

    When I heard those jackasses start talking at the beginning, I thought, "This is going to be unbearable." But you were so smart, so cool and so calm, you actually raised the level of discourse for a few minutes. Maybe that is your special Stripper Mom talent: injecting intelligence into the dumbest, most sordid situations.

  2. Thank you, Anonymous!

  3. Sheila, I heard your interview and it was AWESOME. You were so cool, hip, and smart. Perfect that Cole was nursing in the background. Showed them a thing or two.

    Yikes! Sorry! Cincinnati...

  7. Wow, I wish Mark was around to comment. There's just so much religious insight he could give us. Why is it that women are trapped into being either a "Mommy" or a sexual being? Why can't we be both? It comes from men's fear of women. It comes from old religious ideas, misogny. Keep exploring this! This is great stuff!

  8. wow, I'm listening to the radio thing now - the one radio guy is all upset you don't wear makeup on your blog! What a jerk! There's another thing women have to deal with - the expectation that we have to be drop dead gorgeous all the time. Let's talk about guys in porn - they're always fat and ugly - like guys like that could ever have a shot at sex with a porn store or a sexy stripper! And what's wrong with natural beauty? I think you look great on the blog! I wish I had your skin! Wonder what these radio guys look like. Probably butt ugly - that's why they're in radio and not tv. And what about dating? Most guys expect to get a hot girl but they don't do anything about their own appearance.
