HOW I BECAME A STRIPPER 

Posted in Stripper Secrets, Tilt the Book with tags , , , on May 22, 2018 by tiltdiary

 When I moved from Europe in 1998 to the US I started working as a fitness instructor teaching mainly yoga and Pilates. In 2003 one of my yoga students handed me an article about Sheila Kelly teaching pole dancing to women as a form of fitness. I was very interested and decided in 2005 to take classes at S-Factor and later I took teacher trainings for pole dancing to ad it to my fitness repertoire. I have been teaching pole dancing, exotic dance, and lap dancing ever since. 

In 2008 the economy took a hard hit. The first thing people would cut was their private fitness instructor. My family was struggling financially so my husband and I decided to steak out some high end strip clubs. After all, I studied performing arts in Stuttgart, Germany and had pursued my acting career in Los Angeles as a SAG actress for a decade now, and I was sure I could dance for dollars and save our American Dream. It seemed like a no brainer. I thought I had all the skill and training to take matters into my own hands and bring in enough money for us to live more comfortably. We did a lot of research and after an audition at a fully nude club I started working there. Little did I know that dancing was just about 30% of the job. My journey of becoming a professional stripper was at the very beginning as I learned to navigate through the maze of this secret profession of mine. 

I have been dancing ever since but only stayed at the fully nude club for fourth months. My book “Tilt Diary of a Virgin Stripper” details my experiences and challenges at this particular club and how everything changed with me becoming a professional exotic dancer.

THE VIGILANTE INSIDE A STRIPPER

Posted in Tilt the Book with tags , , , , , on September 7, 2017 by tiltdiary

“Any one of his lovers could have crafted a wicked plan, but he knew I was a vigilante and the only one with the courage to carry it out. What he didn’t know … I wasn’t done.” — Excerpt of “Tilt, Diary of a Virgin Stripper” by A.A. Jones

PRODUCER TELLS STRIPPER HER STORY ISN’T SCREEN WORTHY

Posted in Jones' wisdom, Tilt the Book with tags , , , , , , , on December 16, 2016 by tiltdiary

I’ve met a few producers as well as book agents in the strip club during my years of stripping. Let’s talk about the producers today. All of them were very interested in my book, they admired how well written it is, and all of them wanted to produce my story into either a film or TV series, possibly both till they found out their promises and big plans for me even as the star of my own story — because who else could play Jones — wouldn’t get them into my panties. When sex with me was out of the question, and I had victoriously defeated the casting couch, my story all of a sudden became “not screen worthy.” But some of them still wanted to help me with this project or another if  “we could become friends …” They wanted to still team up with me on some type of project. Whatever that is suppose to mean.
Interestingly enough, I have only heard the “not screen worthy” comment from men. How can anybody say to any woman her true life struggle isn’t screen worthy? Every woman’s journey is screen worthy, sadly most women do not manage to put their incredible story on paper, because many of them are too busy trying to survive, tend to their family, their children, or life is just too much, or they are too busy supporting their producer husband’s career and fame.
But every woman has a screen worthy story, and the sooner the male dominated film industry understands this the more good movies with female leads will hit the box office.
Long live Geena Davis, and her Hollywood women empowerment crusade.

A WOMAN JOURNEYS TOWARDS HER POWER

Posted in Tilt the Book with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2016 by tiltdiary

When a woman journeys toward her power

Her entire life takes a TILT!

 

A.A. Jones is many things to many people. Her roles include wife, neighbor, friend, dog trainer, yoga instructor, Pilates coach, pole dance teacher, and unbeknownst to most, exotic dancer. At 37 – Jones is not your stereotypical college student – moonlighting on the side to make ends meet. She is a real life housewife, desperate, trying to save a marriage from financial doom and in the end, trying to save herself. Her story is everywoman as she struggles to come to terms with her life and in the process finds self-empowerment and moves closer toward inner peace.

Jones’ “Tilt Diary” is more than a day-to-day account of a woman thrown into the underground world of exotic dance, sex and drama. It is the intimate, soul-bearing memoir of a woman making her way in a man’s world and owning her power.  Order it now on Amazon at  http://www.amazon.com/dp/1257802860/ref=dra_a_rv_ss_ho_it_P1400_1000?tag=dradis-20

” … I am a petite woman and always used to looking up at people. For me it’s always been about the shoes. The higher the heel the more confident I felt. Even when I was acting, I was never completely sure about a character until I picked her shoes. I slip into my clear six-inch platform stilettos, and the shoes gives me permission to be the seductress, the temptress …” — Excerpt “Tilt Diary of a Virgin Stripper”
