Stripper Songs: Sapphire of Diamond Jack's Gentlemans Club

There's no shortage of strip club action in the Valley of the Sun. From high-end gentleman's clubs like Christie's Cabaret and Le Girls Cabaret to the low-rent flesh parlors of the West Valley's skeezier industrial neighborhoods, Phoenix is definitely skin city.

Despite what you might think, the buxom babes baring it all inside these strip joints aren't just bumping and grinding to Warrant's "Cherry Pie" of Flo Rida's "Low."

We're debuting a new series dedicated to discovering what the preferred striptrease tracks are for the exotic dancers of the Valley.

This week, we're checking out the sultry Sapphire, an off-the-hook employee of Diamond Jack's Gentlemans Club.

Read about what Sapphire is dancing to -- and see an undistorted picture -- after the jump.

Name: Sapphire

Age: 21

Measurements: 32-30-36.

Club: Diamond Jack's, 3845 East University Drive in Phoenix.

The Song: "Bricks" by Gucci Mane.

Why she digs it: Although this African-American ecdysiast enjoys baring it all to Pretty Ricky and Weezy ("I could dance to any Lil' Wayne song."), her current fave hip-hop artist is the ATL's Gucci Mane. Despite his incarcerated status, (who's serving out a one year sentence in Fulton County Jail for probation violations) the rap star continues to pump out killer urban anthems like "Bricks."

"He's just talking about money and that's what I'm dancing for, to make money, you know what I mean? I'm really inspired by that song."

Signature dance move: "Dunno, I just like to get up on stage and turn my swag on."

Previous occupation: Before becoming a dancer, Sapphire says she used to work with kids at a recreation center.

Current schedule: Monday-Thursday, 3 p.m.-2 a.m.; Friday-Saturday, 3 p.m.-4 a.m.
