Shitty Interview No.23
Over the past few months we have been getting to know & fall in love with a girl who goes by the name ‘The Uncensored Stripper’. Why that name? Because in her own words she is a veteran stripper/prostitute who has experienced the pitfalls of being naked in front of strangers & the absurdities that arise when you fake intimacy for a living. Lucky for us she writes about it all & posts her unapologetic memoirs up on her amazing blog, ‘Anything But a Wasted Life’. Did I mention she is one of my favourite writers? Oh & she also takes gorgeous analogue photos to support her texts. She is self taught in everything she does & as far as I can tell a pro too.
If you missed her last two features up on here be sure to click links below. But first here is our Sticks & Stones Shitty Interview with ‘The Uncensored Stripper’.
Sticks & Stones: Where do you call home?
The Uncensored Stripper: Los Angeles, California.
Sticks & Stones: What are your parents like? What do they think of your chosen profession?
The Uncensored Stripper: They are both witty & independent. My mom will be happy (as will I) when I retire, but she is proud of who I am.
Sticks & Stones: Do Americans like Australians? What do you think we are like?
The Uncensored Stripper: What’s not to like? Australians are fellow humans with fun accents.
Sticks & Stones: What’s your favourite thing to do when no one is around?
The Uncensored Stripper: Watch trashy television & make myself cum in under two minutes (not at the same time).
Sticks & Stones: Please describe & draw your worst haircut.
The Uncensored Stripper: I can’t think of a specific cut, but i left the salon once with my hair half wet (the guy was in the middle of a blow dry) because I was so annoyed & upset (sorry, i can’t draw).
Sticks & Stones: Are you spiritual? What do you believe in?
The Uncensored Stripper: I believe in a universal energy (on most days, sometimes i believe in nothing, which gives me an equal amount of peace).
Sticks & Stones: They say taking too many selfies is a disease now. Do you have this disease? What would be the cure?
The Uncensored Stripper: I refuse to use that term, i still call it a self-portrait. But yes, I take a ridiculous number of them. A cure? Let’s cure cancer first, worry about the mirror shot after.
Sticks & Stones: What does an average Monday look like for you?
The Uncensored Stripper: I wake up around 11am, check emails & Instagram, maybe post a story (from bed). Run errands. Hit a bar to do some writing. Home. Shower. Dinner with friends. Home to my cat & a book in bed (if i’m flying to see my client, then the drinking has started early).
Sticks & Stones: What would you ideal death look like?
The Uncensored Stripper: quick & painless & after my book(s) have been published.
Sticks & Stones: What animal are you coming back as and why?
The Uncensored Stripper: A house cat, I’m a master sleeper.
