Strippers put up with a lot of sh*t. They’re accused of just wanting a quick buck. They’re shamed for using their bodies, rather than their minds to make a living. They’re asked patronizing questions (“What’s a girl like you doing in a place like this?”). All we can say is thank goodness for Jacqueline Frances. The New York-based stripper calls out these unfair stereotypes in a series of hilarious comics she posts on Instagram. Now, she's turning the illustrations—all based on true stories from more than 300 strippers—into a coffee table book called Striptastic

You’ll laugh at the sassy comebacks, but the comics also serve as an important reminder that strippers are just like all of us, working hard to pay the bills. 

Of course, #STRIPTASTIC would not be complete without a chapter titled "Don't Be That Guy." (Link in profile)
