Lucha Va Voom has three upcoming shows on February 14th-16th at the Mayan Theatre, but it’s interesting to see that the rumors I had heard about the organization coming to fruition, starting with this blog post by a burlesque dancer named Miss Satanica who has worked for them before:
Lucha Va Voom is as bad as Suicide Girls- No WORSE!!! YOU ARE EXPLOITED SEX WORKERS!!!!!!!!!!!
Hello to all of my grand burlesque friends. I know a lot of you are doing the Valentine’s Day Lucha show and I would indeed be very happy for you if you were getting paid. But, as we know, most of you are not, even though you are using your sexuality to make money for Rita D’Albert and Liz Fairbarn. Perhaps you are showing your tits, too. This would make you an EXPLOITED SEX WORKER- do you realize this?
You are in no better a situation than a street walker with a nasty pimp.
More after the jump.
Now you may remember that I did a couple of Lucha shows myself that I was ripped off for- but at least they promised me money and then ripped me off- I didn’t go into this thinking I would be working for free- oh no.
And I was very lucky- I got a huge amount of press from it- more press than Liz and Rita wanted- that is for sure- but ladies- most of you do not have fire and will not get that kind of attention from the press- so therefore there is not a huge reason for you to go work for free- unless, that is, you LIKE supporting coke and botox habits.
Really- no one should be working for Lucha for free- that is the bottom line. Not ring girls- not dancers with thier bounced checks- none of you.
You are using your sexuality for someone else to profit. Remember this as you bounce across stage like a monkey for the wanna-be corporate sell outs.
