What it's like to dance at a VR strip club

  • Dancing in a virtual reality strip club may not make a living, but it's been a COVID-safe joy for dancers who can't perform in real-life clubs.
  • A typical night of performing in-person drag takes 19-year-old Lena Diamond hours of prep.
  • She first spends an hour and a half applying makeup, which involves drawing on sharp brows, gluing on feathered lashes, and packing blush across her cheeks.
  • Then she dons a voluminous teal, magenta, or bubblegum pink wig, setting the false hairline with glue for a more natural finish.
  • Once her hair and face are done, Lena pads her hips, laces herself into a corset for an exaggerated hourglass figure, and shimmies into her outfit.
