Woman Made PowerPoint to Tell Parents She’s a Stripper

  • A woman based in Portland, Oregon told her parents she’s a stripper with a PowerPoint presentation.
  • Lex broke down her profession for her parents, getting into what she does and what she earns.
  • “I’m surprised how proud I am,” her mother said in the video posted to TikTok. 

A Portland, Oregon woman found a creative way to tell her parents she’s a stripper: a PowerPoint presentation. 

In a viral video her sister posted to TikTok, the woman, who goes by @lex1898 and calls herself Lex, began the colorful, meme-filled PowerPoint by saying she has a secret she wants to share. 

“Before you start worrying or start getting excited, this secret pertains to my life,”  Lex said. “It doesn’t affect anyone. The only reason I’m sharing is because I want the people I love and trust the most to know what’s going on in my life and just be a part of it.” 

“What the secret does mean – I’m talented, I’m cool, I’m powerful,” she said. “What the secret does not mean – I’m pregnant or I’m in danger.” 

After a dramatic drumroll, Lex told her parents the big news. 

“I’m a stripper, as in I pole dance at a strip club, and I love it,” she said. 


As her parents laughed in surprise, Lex covered some frequently asked questions about her job in the next slide, like why she would want to be in the sex work industry, how she’s staying safe, and whether this is how she’s been able to “suspiciously afford stuff.” 

According to Lex, Portland’s strip club culture is very “sex positive” and allows for a certain level of anonymity in her job. Because her club doesn’t engage is “shady business practices,” she feels perfectly safe at work. 

Lex said in the video that stripping in her club in Portland ultimately gives her safe artistic freedom to express herself and earn some “good moneys” that she pays taxes on. She said she doesn’t engage in other kinds of sex work; she just dances and chats with people. 

After concluding the presentation, Lex asked her parents if they had any other questions for her that weren’t covered by the FAQs.

“I really appreciate you being forthright and sharing your life with us, and I’m glad you are powerful,” her mother said in the video.
