Book Description

March 17, 2005
For more than eight years, I lived and worked in the dark underworld of Las Vegas as an exotic dancer. Some things are worth repeating-others you try to forget. Unfortunately, you never forget. I decided it was time that somebody told the truth about what really happens in Las Vegas strip clubs and their VIP rooms. Is there "sex in the champagne room?" With the right dancer and for right price, there is anything you want in the champagne room! This book gives a lot of insight into what really happens when men are turned loose on the Las Vegas scene. I think men and women alike will be interested in reading about what really happens in Vegas. See what the dark twenty-four-hour world of Vegas is really like. See what an insider has to say about the life of an exotic dancer.

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Eight years of journalizing motivated Diamond to write this book. It always amazed her every time something strange or unusual happened. So after telling her stories to a select few, she was encouraged to write this book. Diamond and her family still reside in Las Vegas, Nevada.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, too exagerated. June 5, 2006
By Jewels
Format:Paperback
As someone that works in the sex industry - i am always looking for material that doesn't demean or ridicule girls in my field. Frankly, this book did just that. This dancer held herself up to be a pristine stripper with morals of gold - while her fellow dancers are portrayed to be a little more nasty and a little more seedy, and a little more willing to do anything for a dollar.

The insight into what really happens when men are turned loose on the Las Vegas scene sounds pretty made up to most of us other dancers who are out there every night. I guess it makes good reading material if you no nothing aobut stripping or strippers though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for the educated! April 7, 2007
By Angel
Format:Paperback
I have a big interest in women's studies and I dig how women can harness their sexual power to support themselves. I appreciate that Diamond opened up her life to share her tales which are interesting, but simply put, she is not a great story teller. Besides telling her 'tail', Diamond appears to give advice to the reader. This book is supposed to be her 'confessions', not tips for how to be a classy stripper or a better patron. Sorry Diamond, but I'm not looking to you to tell me how to behave! I really had to chuckle at how Diamond perceives herself as the morally superior stripper while she explains that all her co-strippers degrade themselves or wear cheap strip outfits. Sounds like rationalization to me. I've read many books in this genre and this was by far the worst. I felt like I was reading something written by a kid! I was horrified at the amount of grammatical and spelling errors in this book! Don't publishers have people to proof-read??? The reading level was so low that I gave the book to my Russian friend who doesn't have a good grasp of the english language. I'm glad she liked it because I feel stupid for having even made this purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars ...Wow. October 21, 2007
By J. S.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
**Edit: One of the most annoying aspects of this book is that the majority of stories the writer tells are NOT her own stories!! So she's making bank by stealing other peoples' experiences. This is made even more annoying because she pairs these stories with her own judgmental remarks on other dancers'/customers' actions.**

I bought this book thinking that I could stomach the grammatical errors (mentioned by other reviewers), since the stories would hopefully be interesting/shocking/humorous enough to make up for the errors.

I was wrong. I'm easily entertained, but also educated, and this book failed to be entertaining or even merely educational about 'behind the scenes' stripping. I was not shocked by any of Diamond's stories (come on people, you probably know what goes on in Vegas by now...use your imaginations!) Diamond basically reiterates what you already think of Vegas strip clubs (for the right price, everything can happen), and doesn't even provide a unique perspective, or any insightful comments about her job. She seems VERY snooty, extremely cynical about men in general, undereducated (ironic, since one of her stories is about how a random customer complimented her on her intelligence), and unable to harness any forms of rhetoric to make her stories more interesting.

She seems to fail to realize that what goes on in Vegas ALSO goes on in clubs across America. Just because Las Vegas has a large collection of clubs in one place does NOT mean it's the only place where girls provide sexual favors in the back rooms.

If you want a good book that will provide you with entertaining anecdotes coupled with smart reflections/insights, buy the book "Callgirl: Confessions of an Ivy League Lady of Pleasure.

1.0 out of 5 stars No different than any other stripper book. June 5, 2006
Format:Paperback
As a stripper myself, I am always picking up these types of books, to learn of other stripper's experiences. This book is no different than most on the market.

I think the author is adding a little spice to the story to get people's reactions and interests going. I am not impressed and cannot recommend this book to anyone, sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real truth about Vegas!!!!! May 24, 2006
By Ashlyy
Format:Paperback
One of my guy friends handed me; A Stripper's Tail, one night and I was done reading it by the next morning. I had to read all night, I couldn't put it down and was sad when it was over. I grew up in Sin City and live here still. Everything that Diamond talked about is the reality of the Las Vegas life. It can be glamorous, sleazy, ruthless and even, deadly. Men visiting here really do range from the fabulous to pure trash. She didn't hold back a thing and you could hear in this author's voice her true love of living the life of an exotic dancer. She broke free of the stereotype. She's bright, full of life, and not ashamed of the path she chose. She tells it like it is and isn't scared to say what she thinks. That's a rare quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must have for every coffee table... May 2, 2006
By Cody
Format:Paperback
I have to disagree with the bad reviews on this book. Although, there are a few grammatical errors, most books out there these days have one or two that can be found. I agree the author is not a novelist, but I have to give the stripper girl an A+ for her effort in the attempt to tell her stories. I found this book to be funny and hilarious and very easy to visualize everything that the author is talking about. I know I will be leaving this book on my coffee table for all of my friends to pick up and browse through for a good laugh. A must have for every coffee table!!!!
