About Us

My name is Lux ATL, and I am a mother, wife, business owner, former university instructor, and lifelong stripper. From the halls of academia to the strip club stage, my life as a post-academic feminist sex worker has been filled with unique sociological insight, unforgettable friendships, and a thousand beautiful messes in between. These are my true stories of the highs and lows of an ex-academic and lifelong stripper pole dancing for pay on stages all across the South.

048: Who Mans the Panopticon

EI’ve talked a lot about stripping and falling in and out of love with sex work, but I haven’t talked a lot about my time falling in and out of love with professional intellectualism--so today, I want to talk about that. Today's episode is about the first time when I quit my life as a full-time stripper to commit myself to a "respectable" life, dove into scholarship, and brought my punk-rock, stargazer boyfriend along for a ride—a ride that may not have been the one he signed up for.

046: A Hustler Never Dies

EWhat’s up, dudes? Thanks for tuning in to Stripcast: True Stories From a Stripper With a PhD. Lately, I’ve been reflecting on how this story ends--it’s really bigger than quitting stripping, isn't it. I was a stripper my whole life, and I’m not that anymore. Sometimes as you grow, on the one hand you’re excited, but on the other hand, you mourn the loss of who you used to be. This episode is about mourning that loss, and realizing: maybe not all is lost, after all. You can connect with Lux on Facebook at facebook.com/lux.atl or follow Lux on Instagram @lux_atl.
