Watch Episode 2 of Documentary Web Series 'P.O.P' (NSFW)

Here's Episode 2 of the documentary web series P.O.P. by Atlanta based filmmaker Artemus Jenkins, which we first wrote about HERE, just a few weeks ago.

As Jenkins says much better than I ever could, his multi-part series deals with "the most celebrated and vindicated individuals in our culture; strippers. These women are sometimes classified as lowlifes of society, many thought to be streetwalking drug fiends with no regard for others. Some are thought to be impressionable young women, taken advantage of by men overseeing a seedy underworld."

He further goes on to say that: "These are assumptions often made without any context from the women who live this life. This… is a small look at a world many have only heard about, shedding light on how things really work for many women who have put on a g-string at some point in their lives."

Like I said I couldn't have said it any better myself.

Here's Episode 2:

Not bad. I would be really interested in seeing what happens to the ladies after their stripping life comes to an end. Maybe find the Magic City strippers who were working in '94-95' during the prime freaknik years (I was there) to find out what path their lives have followed. Which ones are schoolteachers or work in corporate america…the housewife whose husband has no clue about her former life.

Don't know how I missed when S&A posted the first segment of this but this is good. I was worried b/c it's from a male perspective but I'm enjoying it so far.

""the most celebrated and vindicated individuals in our culture; strippers"

Men love any variation of the madonna/whore complex, nothing new about that. And whose culture is Jenkins referring to, American in general or Black folks? As someone mentioned, it would be interesting if other types of erotic dancing is featured, like the art of removing clothing, burlesque. There's a whole culture of women of color who do that and get no praise, and it's not just about booty poppin and hanging upside down on a pole. Or even belly dancing, which IMO is mad sexy.

This topic is worthy of a being a feature film (with a different plot than "The Players Club"…I knew you were going there).
These clubs are frequented by entertainers/ball players/business execs/politicians on an almost daily basis…they network in these places.

The things that these women have seen/did/know could ruin lives, families and careers.

They know where all the bodies are buried.

Great work Artemis…I'm actually in the next state over (Birmingham).
We have strip clubs also, but not enough money flows through the city(no pro sport teams, for one…) so the spots arent that big and theres in real "strip club culture"…if anything, the girls here(who are ready to step it up) are preparing to move there.

Upside down ab crunches on a pole? The formation in the picture? Chile, now I’m just jealous. The lady who said that she couldn’t dance tickled me. Their abs are sick!!!!! I do applaud the first woman for also being a pole dancing instructor. It’s a lot less dangerous than stripping in clubs can be (I am not saying that all clubs are dangerous, just some of them).

DAMN!! Everyone and just everything makes it to S & A except me!

Hmmmmmmmmmm. LOL I wonder how many Fathers have this dream for their daughters. I see the technical / breaking down of the stereotype / strippers are human too approach – but from a technical non-judgemental point of view……is this something you want your wife, mother, sister, aunt, or daughter doing? Imagine all of your buddies makin' it rain on ya moms big rump shaking booty and then talk about it like it's another Tuesday!!!!!! I get it – it's art and entertainment. I see the costumes but just throwing it out there!

sergio

I gotta ask – did you date any of them?

I think he meant to use the word "vindicated;" probably thinking of another word. lol As far as a review, my reptilian brain keeps wanting to say that this caliber of stripping is what I enjoy — like Cirque du Soleil without the pretense, or the exorbitant ticket prices. lol
