I’ve been following one of Vancouver’s local dancers on Instagram for a little while now only to find out that she’s moved down to AMERICA! Wait, what? During a global pandemic? HOW?! I caught up with Mya Banks to speak about her big move down to Washington and her new career change: a bikini barista.
From stripping on Western Canada’s stages to club closures due to the pandemic and a heartbreaking familial situation, Mya decided it was time to pack up and leave. It was time for a new change. With the big move, she had to pivot and find a new job. She was able to find a job that mixed her exhibitionism and killer good looks as a bikini barista. What is that exactly? A naked Starbucks? How do you get paid? What does that entail? You’ll have to listen to the entire episode to find out about this form of sex work and how lucrative it can really be. It’s a shift in a somewhat different direction with earlier hours, great tips and a helllllllll of a lot of caffeine!
