They entertained by stripping off their clothes on stage, it started in Vaudeville where they went from fully dressed to a tiny costume, Burlesque became a  genre of its own where the show was just ladies stripping on stage. As things got more adventurous Strippers would offer their act even on Night Club floors. Later in the Century as technology evolved Ladies would perform on film and then video tape.

Nina Hartley was interviewed for Wendy McElroy’s 1995 book XXX: A Woman’s Right to Pornography. She relates how she was arrested in 1993 in Las Vegas along with 10 other adult stars (later known as the “Erotic Eleven”) for having performed a lesbian show at an adult video industry fund raiser; an undercover police officer was present in the audience. Threatened with 6 to 12 years in prison for felony lesbianism and pandering, she was eventually allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanour.
