The strippers of Star Garden need your help in creating safe working conditions, wipe out punative hiring, and to hopefully unionize.
I am so proud of these performers for standing up to the dangerous business practices that have been happening definitly since the new owners of Star Garden took over, but definitely at strip club locations around the country for decades. As a retired stripper myself, this strike has deep personal meaning to me, and I am spreading the word to help them get what they need.
This story has gained traction, getting written up in both local and national publications. they have also been invited to be panel speakers at the Labor Notes conference in Chicago.

Greetings from Bhakti Temple!
It has been a long 15 months. I have deeply missed our connections. I am happy to announce my reopening on June 7th!
I have changed my business model a bit and there will be new, safer protocols.
Here is what will be changing:
I will only be seeing 1-2 guests per day. Longer sessions will be prioritized.
I am fully vaccinated. I am happy to show a copy of my card. Each guest must be vaccinated and show proof of such before booking your appointment. This is non negotiable. If you are of those who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical reasons, I’m sorry I will not be able to see you at this time.
I am no longer tolerating no shows and last minute cancellations. Therefore, a $100 non refundable deposit must be made via CashApp, Venmo, Amazon gift code or Bitcoin to secure your spot. If for any reason I am unable to make our appointment, your deposit WILL be returned to you. This applies to all guests, whether I’ve seen you before or not. The balance of your fee is cash only.
Masks will not he required, however if you choose to wear one, or would like me to wear one, I am happy to accommodate you.
Strict cleaning practices have always been and will continue to be on point at my space. Disposable hand towels will now be used. Sanitized oil bottles will be changed out after each guest, and disposable face covers are still in use. I have an air purifier and two humidifiers to help with the air.
One of the biggest changes, for those who have seen me before especially, there are now two Temple pets. Having to close my business for this long drastically changed my living situations.
I now have my 13yr old cat, Pearl, and I rescued a two year old Min Pin, Ezra. They both have the run of my place, but are not allowed on the table, ever. They will both probably say hi, and while Pearl can’t really be bothered, Ezra as a therapy dog in training, will probably want to check in on me once in a while. I am hoping that as he gets used to people here, he will learn there is no need to worry and just hang in the living room.
I keep my place fur free and have a pet hair specific vacuum.
If you don’t like animals or are deeply allergic, I totally understand and finding another practitioner may be best.
I think that’s it! I am so excited to get back to the work of giving loving, erotic, and non-judgemental touch. We are all so in need after the past year.
