An exotic dancer tells her story

The life of an exotic dancer is often far from exotic.

The dancers, staffers and managers of Temptations, the only adult entertainment club in the city of Beaumont, all have their own reasons as to how they got their start. “Harley,” who started a little more than a year ago, said exotic dancing wasn’t her first career choice, and that the industry isn’t for everyone.

“A lot of girls that you will talk to are in the same situation,” she said. “A lot of them probably have it worse than I do, or been through worse than I have.

“This isn’t a life. You shouldn’t take this and make it a life … because, after so long, it kind of affects you.”
