new york magazine did an amazing article in this week’s issue titled “two bucks a dance” it was an expose article on the lifestyle of bailarina girls. bailarina bars are spanish bars where mexican and ecuadoran immigrant men go to find companionship. and not in the form of sex, but in dancing, drinking and conversation – the things they miss from their home countries.
so often we think of women only being able to sell sex for money. but a lot of times it isn’t about sex at all for men. especially ones that are thousands of miles from home, working for pennies, and alone in a country where they can’t speak the language and have no family or friends. these bailarina girls make men feel like men again, and for that i tip my hat to them.
