Two Of The Five Women Interviewed Die Before The Film Is Finished.

Billie danced to support herself as an actress. As much as she loved women who tore their clothes off in MGM Musicals, she had a love/hate relationship with topless dancing.

Vicki had chin and cheek implants and two breast augmentations and felt a lot better about herself. With an MFA from NYU, she found stripping the most lucrative dance.

Angela was shark like in her approach to extracting dollars from men. She said she didn't think sexually when she worked but used "shrewd business tactics."

Susan wrote for The Village Voice and danced to support herself and her son. She detested stripping but continued doing it. She said she was addicted.
,br>Then there's Jill, the director, the stripper. She wrote and performed in True Confessions of a Go-Go Girl to critical acclaim including NY Times, Backstage, Extra! and Penthouse.

"Six years ago I became a stripper. I had the kind of access and privy that is only made available to those inside the trade. By profiling four other dancers, and myself, I explored the inner workings of exotic dancing: the women who want to try it, those who enjoy it, and those who want to quit. They all spoke openly about their occupation, breast implants, empowerment and exhibitionism. All of them feel deeply conflicted about stripping. By the end of Stripped, two out of five woman die because of their entrenchment in this lifestyle."
