Vicki Vaughn of Xplicit Showclub
Click "More" for an undistorted peek.
Welcome to Stripper Songs, a weekly feature that proves not all Phoenix strippers bump and grind to Warrant's "Cherry Pie" of Flo Rida's "Low."
This weeks ecdysiast (that word sounds extra dirty, right?) is diminiuative dame Vicki Vaughn, whom you can find at Xplicit Showclub over in Glendale.
Learn more about what Ms. Vaughn is shaking her booty to -- and see an undistorted picture -- after the jump.
Name: Vicki Vaughn
Club: Xplicit Show Club, 11701 West Glendale Avenue, Glendale.
Measurements: "I'm not sure. I know I'm small and I haven't hit the triple digits yet."
The Song: "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails.
Why she digs it: Dainty and soft-spoken, this 5-foot-2, 95-pound chickadee seems like she'd be more at home working some button-down office job instead of prancing about a stage to a song as ribald and raw-sounding as NIN's blockbuster single from 1994's The Downward Spiral. "It's the quintessential stripper song," she says. "It's just this sexy and gothic song."
The disparity between her demure demeanor and her naughty night job is just one of the ways which Vicki Vaughn (not to be confused with porn star of the same name) is a study in contrasts. Here's another: When not strutting her stuff at Xplicit -- which is located near University of Phoenix Stadium at the ass-end of Glendale -- she's studying to be a mortuary cosmetician at Grand Canyon University.
"It's kinda funny," she says. "I went to a Christian boarding academy growing up, Now I'm going to a Christian college and at the same time I'm a titty dancer."
Hope none of your instructors come in for a lapdance or two.
Previous occupation: "I've had every single bullshit job in the entire world. Always wound up walking out with my middle fingers in the air. Can't take the whole the 9 to 5 schedule. This is like the perfect job for me since I show up when I want and leave when I want."
Current schedule: Various nights throughout the week after 6 p.m.
