This is why college graduates are stripping to pay back their student loans

Over the past few years, many arti­cles have come out detail­ing the lives of female col­lege (or law school) grad­u­ates who are engag­ing in ‘sex work’ to make ends meet. They strip, pole-​dance, and oth­er­wise sell their young bod­ies for money. Most peo­ple blame the econ­omy. Some blame the higher edu­ca­tion bub­ble. I blame the course offer­ings at col­leges:

Item Eight: North Car­olina State Uni­ver­sity spent $304.69 to pur­chase butt plugs, vibra­tors, dil­dos and other sex­ual devices as prizes for a “Dirty Bingo” event. NCSU offi­cial Lau­ryn Col­lier says the pur­pose of “Dirty Bingo” is to “find ‘inno­v­a­tive’ ways to dis­cuss sex­ual health on the cam­pus … The cer­ti­fied edu­ca­tors plan to use some of the items … to demon­strate healthy sex practices.”

Note to col­lege co-​eds: if you spend your years learn­ing about vibra­tors, dil­dos, and how the patri­archy is scared of your amaz­ing sex­u­al­ity, then do not be sur­prised when strip clubs are the only places that will offer you paid employ­ment when you grad­u­ate. (Also be aware that shak­ing your chest in a rich man’s face for money is a step up from what you did in col­lege, which is to shake your chest in soon-​to-​be-​rich account­ing major’s face for free.) A final word of advice: do not let your pay­ing clients know that most women your age do not charge for such ser­vices, under the belief that giv­ing them out for free is “empow­er­ing”. You do not need to study eco­nom­ics to feel the effects of it.

Okay, that was harsh. But I spent my col­lege years study­ing engi­neer­ing, and, not sur­pris­ingly, I had an engi­neer­ing job upon grad­u­a­tion. As much as “fem­i­nist” col­lege co-​eds may beg to dif­fer, the respectable job mar­ket prefers to hire women who spent their Fri­day nights learn­ing sur­face chem­istry and ther­mo­dy­nam­ics, not those who spent their time learn­ing about the myr­iad uses for butt plugs or who “explored their sex­u­al­ity.” I’m won­der­ing how those inter­views would go.…

Inter­viewer: What skills would you bring to the com­pany, which focuses on finan­cial planning?

Co-​Ed: I know a lot about vibra­tors and how they free women from repres­sive, Judeo-​Christian sex­ual mores; surely, there’s a trans­fer­able skill there.

Over the past few years, many articles have come out detailing the lives of female college (or law school) graduates who are engaging in ‘sex work’ to make ends meet.  They strip, pole-dance, and otherwise sell their young bodies for money.  Most people blame the economy.  Some blame the higher education bubble.  I blame the course offerings at colleges:

Item Eight: North Carolina State University spent $304.69 to purchase butt plugs, vibrators, dildos and other sexual devices as prizes for a “Dirty Bingo” event. NCSU official Lauryn Collier says the purpose of “Dirty Bingo” is to “find ‘innovative’ ways to discuss sexual health on the campus … The certified educators plan to use some of the items … to demonstrate healthy sex practices.”

Note to college co-eds: if you spend your years learning about vibrators, dildos, and how the patriarchy is scared of your amazing sexuality, then do not be surprised when strip clubs are the only places that will offer you paid employment when you graduate.  (Also be aware that shaking your chest in a rich man’s face for money is a step up from what you did in college, which is to shake your chest in soon-to-be-rich accounting major’s face for free.)  A final word of advice: do not let your paying clients know that most women your age do not charge for such services, under the belief that giving them out for free is “empowering”.  You do not need to study economics to feel the effects of it.

Okay, that was harsh.  But I spent my college years studying engineering, and, not surprisingly, I had an engineering job upon graduation.  As much as “feminist” college co-eds may beg to differ, the respectable job market prefers to hire women who spent their Friday nights learning surface chemistry and thermodynamics, not those who spent their time learning about the myriad uses for butt plugs or who “explored their sexuality.”  I’m wondering how those interviews would go….

Interviewer: What skills would you bring to the company, which focuses on financial planning?

Co-Ed: I know a lot about vibrators and how they free women from repressive, Judeo-Christian sexual mores; surely, there’s a transferable skill there.
