Watch First Episode of New Web Series ‘P.O.P’ (NSFW)

Watch First Episode of New Web Series 'P.O.P' (NSFW)

As Bugs Bunny once said: “What kind of deviltry can I think of doing today?”

So here we go again with something controversial which is sure not going to sit well with some of you (putting it very mildly…). There are all kinds of web series being produced nowadays, but this one is admittedly different.

And yet it does deal with a reality. A harsh reality that some people want to ignore or pretend that it doesn’t; but it’s out there folks. I found that there is, nevertheless, a rather haunting sadness just underneath the surface – of women who have faced nothing but disappointments and crushed dreams, and who are forced to take whatever meager opportunities that life and society, as a whole, has allotted them. 

It’s a multi-part documentary web series called P.O.P and I won’t tell you what the letters stand for. You’ll have to watch the first episode to see for yourself.

But according to the creator of the web series, Artemus Jenkins, the goal of his series is to feature “women who dance and have danced at the historic Magic City strip club in Atlanta. My primary goal in doing it was to put a more human side to a group that many people often misconceive as a low life group of women. It may or may not change people’s views, but I, at least, wanted to delve into their world a bit so that we all could have a better understanding of the culture.”

And you know me by now, if there’s one thing that I absolutely love to do is to stir up trouble.

Here’s Episode One (as the title of the post says, it’s probably NSFW):

really liked this!
if it matters, i have zero interest in going to strip clubs. (tho' i will note that the women in this one are vastly more attractive than the one's i've seen in my limited experience.)
that said, i really like the respect the director is showing for the women, by giving them their own voice and showing them on their own terms. and, seemingly so far at least, without sentimentalizing them. great work!

These women provide a valuable service to society, (I'm serious).. I'll definitely check this out..

Gigi is smart. She was able to transition from the “business” into a self owned business. Their bodies are truly enviable. It’s actually good to hear from some of the ladies, because it debunks some myths, i.e. That they are not that bright and love to get naked. This video shows that neither statement is true. They are women trying to make it, and for whatever reason this is where they have landed job wise for the time being. My biggest concern about this industry are the “side effects” that come with the business, i.e. Men who think that since they paid for a lap dance they “own” you and can beat the crap out of you. The association that men make between sex and violence makes this a dangerous profession.

I watched this yesterday. It might be fun to watch. Best new age way to document this lifestyle.

Really beautiful work. The best web series I've seen yet. I'll be looking out for more episodes.
