Strippers are real people that are capable of amazing things, in and outside of the strip club. On “Yes, a Stripper Podcast” each week with a different guest, our host, AM Davies, discusses what strippers are up to, what the climate in and outside of the clubs is like and how social classifications can be harmful to marginalized groups. Strippers, sex workers, pole dancers and civilians can learn from stripper and sex worker community members and their allies.

Tune into this episode and take some notes because I certainly did!
The Devil is in the Details
AMD sits down with three women who participated with S-Factor and Sheila Kelley in more than one way. Whether it was teaching at the studio, as a student or as a participant in the recent "Strip Down, Rise Up" movie release on Netflix. The problematic behavior abounds within the culture that is S-Factor, and is shared by Misha, Alyssa and Jessica in this extra long episode. There were many topics to cover and we wanted these guests to have the time and safe space to share this story, as main stream media tends to omit the voices that are the most important. This one will take you on a journey and bonus, there is a breathing exercise at the end.

A must-listen for all feminists!
This podcast has taught me so much! Things I thought I knew or understood have been absolutely blown wide open for me with this podcast and shown me that including and supporting sex workers is NECESSARY as they are the ones really challenging the patriarchy and other power structures. So thankful to hear these stories and be better educated by these amazing humans.
Gratitude to the YAS crew!
This podcast is so awesome! All of the guests sharing their stories/missions in life/advocacy is so powerful and needed in the sworker community. Thank you AM and crew, y’all are amazing.
As a civilian pole dancer myself, this podcast provides a way for me to hear about the experiences of strippers and sex workers that I might not otherwise learn about. Especially during the pandemic. So thankful for the people who share their stories and for AMD for providing a platform. Oh and it’s a great podcast to add to a list for intersectional feminism!
