You can think about the woman, or the peeler you knew in 2005

Gram Ponante
Not, as I'd originally thought, a Bob Seger travelogue dealing with the trials and tribulations of life on the road, the just-available NightMoves documentary is instead a backstage look at Tampa's annual stripper-heavy convention, shot during the 2005 show.

Characterized by a homier and clubbier feel than the AVN convention and show, the 2005 NightMoves event brought together Keli Anderson, Regan Anthony, Aria, Belladonna, Jezebel Bond, Tim Case, Darla Crane, Kiki D'aire, Felicia Fox, Victoria Givens, Montana Gunn, Dennis Hof, Layla-Jade, Jesse Jane, Ron Jeremy, Christi Lake, Jacklyn Lick, Carmen Luvana, Gina Lynn, Sean Michaels, Mike South, Lisa Sparxxx, Sunset Thomas, and Vandalia for several days of inside jokes, fan interactions, the inevitable crossovers with the swinging community, and peeler drama.

Even at the feature dancing level, the noble stripper is a blue collar worker. She works hard for the money (even if she hates you), so this behind the scenes peak might as well be about railroad workers, except with boobies and pole wax.

I asked one stripper of my acquaintance how it felt to pick up a measly three dollars off the stage after an extended workout to "Old Time Rock And Roll" or "My Humps":

"You pretend it doesn't bother you," she said, "but you just want to explode."
