Telling your parents that you take your clothes off for money isn’t easy, which is why it’s important that when you do break the news to them, you do it in the right way. A woman named Lex came up with the perfect plan, creating a PowerPoint presentation to not only let them know that she’s a stripper but to preempt any questions or concerns they might have. The special moment was captured on video by her sister, Sami, and uploaded to TikTok, where it’s garnered more than 11 million views and counting.
@lex1898 is WILD😩 Jokes aside our parents are the literal best, my mom said “I’m surprised how proud I am” 🥺😭😭 #hotgirlshit #getthatbagsis
- Lex had it all planned out perfectly. She started by telling her parents that the secret she’s sharing only affects herself and her own life and that she’s not pregnant or in danger. That alone seems to be enough to quell the immediate concerns her parents may have had.
- When she breaks the news, they take it really well. Finally, Lex reveals big secret: “I’m a stripper, as in I pole dance, and I love it.” However, she goes further in answering some FAQs to put their minds further at ease.
- It’s a safe environment and Lex is there by choice. In the clip, Lex explains that she loves being a stripper because it lets her express herself in a sex-positive environment. She also said that she loves the theatrical performance element of being a stripper. “It’s one of the funnest jobs I’ve ever had so I just wanted to share that with you because you deserve to know and I didn’t want you to worry so that’s why I had the FAQs,” Lex told them.
- Lex’s parents’ response was the stuff of dreams. Instead of freaking out or condemning her, they actually voiced their support and appreciation for their daughter’s honesty. “I really appreciate you being forthright and sharing your life with us and I’m glad you’re powerful”. She then gave her a high-five,” her mom said. The only question her dad asked was how much money she was making. They’re the best!
