Когда я была маленькой девочкой, мама надолго уезжала работать за границу, часто на три месяца. И за мной присматривали воспитатели. Я и понятия не имела, чем она зарабатывает на жизнь, а воспитатели никогда об этом не говорили. Но когда мне исполнилось восемь лет, я неожиданно узнала обо всем.

Мы с мамой в то время отдыхали в Бельгии, и гуляя однажды прошли мимо ночного клуба, где я увидела ее большую фотографию на витрине. Я помню, как закричала: «Это моя мама!». Она смутилась, но улыбнулась мне. И я только недавно припомнила, что там на ней почти не было одежды.

Мама рассказала мне о своем занятии значительно позже, и до семнадцати лет я всегда повторяла, что никогда не смогу раздеться на публике. Мы с мамой очень близки, и она бывало рассказывала мне, что такое стриптиз. Она никогда не уговаривала меня заняться этим делом и если бы не то, что она так любила свои выступления, я бы никогда этим не занялась. Оглядываясь назад я полагаю: неудивительно, что история в конце концов повторилась!

Я стала участвовать в представлениях в прошлом июне, увидев объявление о наборе танцовщиц-топлесс с зарплатой до 1000 фунтов.


Lauren McGregor followed her mum into a very unusual profession, a stripping. If it wasn`t for the fact her mom loved it so much, Lauren would never have got into it herself. She thinks stripping is just a way of earning a living. And she needed money to put herself through college (she`s studying performing arts). She gets stripping work during her college holidays in clubs on the continent. She can earn up to 350 pounds a time doing 12 performances at night. Her mother doesn`t mind her stripping. But she admits that old-style striptease was to slow music and was very elegant. It took place in a theatre. She didn`t blush because she knew she was good at it. Lauren plans to devote an entire year to stripping to save enough money for the university. But she is going to stop in 3 or 4 years.
