Jane McCoy, a recent college graduate, much to her parent's dismay, decides to scrap her plans for law school to pursue an acting career full-time. Struggling to make ends meet, she meets a confident and persuasive friend who shows her the way to make extra money go-go dancing. What starts as just an "easy money" job, however, rapidly becomes an all-consuming activity that slowly pulls Jane from her acting classes, her relationships with her boyfriend and family, and, most importantly, from her true self.

More about the effects of this type of life-style, the title should address self-esteem issues and women.
Overall the story isn't bad, but guaranteed the reality is much starker and does not end with someone going back to acting class or entering law school. Rachel Hunter gives a good cameo, and Chelsea Hobbs is sympathetic as the principle character.
A documentary once interviewed women at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch and they said that they felt valued, that this was a form of therapy. Certainly not for them, but for the people who choose to hire them, its not a glamorous profession.
There really is no glamor in being demeaned. If a girl wants to experiment, she should have a Plan B for her future. The movie is good in that it does not completely glamorize the lifestyle, the one friend who dies while under anesthesia for breast augmentation is a good example.
