I'm trying to find information on how women use their bodies for business. I need information on strippers, escorts... that sort of stuff. In particular, why they do it. Do you know of any web sites?

Thanks for your note. I'm afraid that there is no one reason why people become strippers, escorts, etc... Just as each woman is different, each person makes this decision for a different reason. From talking to people, I have heard the following reasons:

1.) I love my body and I want to flaunt it.
2.) I have no other choice.
3.) It's good money.
4.) I want to.
5.) I need to.

And also, women use their bodies in many other businesses, too. How about women who are athletes or coaches, construction workers? Don't forget this part of the equation.
