Natasha’s Not My Name
This memoir is the story of my double life. It begins with my initiation into the strip club industry at the age of 16, and it details what I learned about being a woman in a place that conditions you to be exactly what society teaches you you’re not.
In its pages, I explore key relationships with my immediate family, the cousin who groomed me, the dancers who supported me, and the men who paid me, along the way. I dive deep into the dark pockets of sexual abuse, suicide, and drug use, as well as those things that saved me: my love for dance and the arts.
