Rather than focus solely on the conditions of the workplace or the social stigmas associated with sex work, Dewey provides a deeper look at a smaller sample of women. Many of the dancers described themselves as strong and independent in spite of their position as sex workers. Among the fifty women interviewed, Dewey conducted more extensive life story interviews with dancers self-named "Diamond," "Star," "Chantelle," "Cinnamon," and "Angel," who each spoke candidly about their impressions of their work and how they believed their jobs affected—or did not affect—their private lives.

The author is an academic doing research on the topic of strip club dancers as a means of supporting themselves and their children in an area where well paid jobs are scarce. The women working in the club do not have education or social advantages, which is the reason primarily that they do this work.
Although the author clearly sympathizes with the situation, the writing is very academic with lots of references to other works by academic professionals. I did not feel that it was a "fun" read, as many of the personal memoirs on the subject can be. This is your go to book if you are currently in college studying anthropology or sociology.
