    the other thread was getting long, but here is the link for part 1: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/313189/, and here is part 3: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/417639/.

    my site seeks to refute stereotypes about exotic dancers, and gives a human story to what i do. i get very tired of the assumptions that are lobbed at me, so this is the way i answer the various questions, comments, and experiences i come up against in this particular career.

    anyway, if you are interested please feel free to visit:
    www.devonhunter.info

    there are many pages of blog entries, so don't assume the only topics are those on the first page. there are also categories listed along the right if a particular topic interests you. i'd like to build traffic and convos on the site so that i can attract advertisers, so that THEY can pay for the site instead of me. lol

    (2/2/09 edit: please note that i do not charge the companies on my blog a fee for having their sites connected to mine.)

    I want to congratulate you on your blog, what I found, very interesting. Like you I'm an exotic dancer, but I have a BBA major in communications.

    I like that later, you can developed the theme: the importance of music in a performance.

    Happy Holidays

    Rocko

    Translation:

    Quiero felicitarte, por tu blog, lo encontre muy interesante. Como te indique soy un bailarin exotico, aunque poseo un BBA major in communications, que no estoy ejerciendo al momento. Me gustaria que mas adelante desarrollaras el tema de la importancia.

    Feliz Navidad

    Rocko


    I invite you to know more about me in the following link:

    This is a description of some of the dances I've particularly enjoyed giving. It's a complete and utter inaccuracy to assume that only unattractive men pay for dances.

    It's so hard to realize that what you are, the beauty of who you are, does not need to be proven to anyone. I struggle with the desire to prove myself all the time. Thanks for the reminder.

    so this is a rando (no..i know its random but i like saying rando) topic. I almost feel like it's just another way for people to say hey! im a dancer, look at me! it proves nothing. I use to dance for an 18+ club in la when i was 18 (going to ucla, dancing and had a real job). I did because i liked the attention and well, a few hundred bucks at the end of the night also made it that much better! anyway, the fact is that we all do it or did it for the attention... you can spare me the not me! one of my closest friend's still does it, is getting a masters in psych and was a professional dancer. yet, he like me think that the excuse that i do it because i'm a dancer is totally stupid. most clubs don't want you to actually dance. They want you to stand there and sway your hips for a few hrs. ugh, i finds this topic irritating...

    fair enough, but you express your constant irritation freely in everything else you write, so please don't be offended that there's no surprise for me that'd you be irritated here as well. but i think you're selling the blog short, in all honesty. also, be careful about what you label as "fact" and how you include "we all" in your blanket statements. you are oversimplifying the purpose of the site i created. if you read the topics you'll find they do more than simply ask people to fawn over me. there IS a point to the whole thing, afterall... also, what i do IS a real job, thank you very much.

    incidentally, you might consider reading http://www.devonhunter.info/archives/31 (a post i wrote way back in february 2008 ) before you make (inflated?) public claims about what you make and then pour scorn on the very activity that has made you that money.

    Can I just say that I find the use of "rando" irritating. icon_rolleyes.gif
    ...and I could "expound" on the "why", but why over-state the obvious?



    opps... judge not, least ye be judge

    No truer words have been spoken.
    Beauty is truly expressed from within and is that which defines who you are and draws one to you...
    The skin, hair, body are just accessories and tastes vary as much as those "trappings" - and how fitting a word is that, since too often we are ‘trapped’ by our own need for "physical" approval.
    Rock On!
    ...and Happy New Year!

    Latest blog entry: "Corresponding from the heART: My Target Audience"

    This entry is a response to an amazingly kind email I received from a female reader. It has made me aware of how much my readership is expanding, and how it is becoming necessary in my mind to more clearly describe my mission in maintaining this site.

    Jack, I've chatted with you for some time now. I'm pleased that you have your blog that speaks to the misconceptions and preconceptions that you encounter as an exotic dancer. Though, I have to confess that, when someone such as you, with your joie de vivre, has to defend your job to others in the gay community; well, that's just disappointing.

    Too many within our own gay community are so very quick to pass judgement on others within that community; dismissing careers, manners of dress, the way others look, the way others don't look.

    Don't too many in "mainstream" society judge our community harshly enough? We have to add our own shrill voices?

    Good luck with what you're doing. Fight the good fight. But, never forget your raison d'être is to entertain and help people live in the moment. That's your gift to us and no one can diminish that with their small mindedness.

    Peace! Love ya! M.
