Randomly Selected

FB_IMG_1480384935379When I was in Adelaide featuring at the Palace, I went for dinner with a few friends of mine. My good friend, Justine, who used to sing in my all girl group, G-Force and is now an epic cosplayer who just so happened to have married an Aussie and now lived in Australia (Lucky me to have a friend on the other side of the planet!) her hubby, who is a journalist and author along with their two friends, who are wrestlers. Yep, at my table of creativity sits a showgirl, cosplayer, journalist and 2 hot wrestlers! Let the fun begin!

Sean, Justine’s hubby, looks over at me and says, “Tell them the story about when you went through airport security.” NOW…I have SO MANY stories of both, going through airport security and immigration around the globe that I was trying to remember which story he was talking about. So I said, “Ok, was it the story with the sex toys?” Everyone bursts out laughing! He’s trying to gather himself and replies, “No, no, not that one.” So I then blurt out, “Was it the one with the bondage gear?” Everyone is still killing themselves laughing from the first incriminating question I made and this second one just was over the top…Justine then says, “I think it’s the one with your posters and magnets.” “Ooooohhh….THAT one!” I say. You see, for some reason I always get ‘randomly selected’ when going through airport security. I go in for extra testing every time. It actually has made me lose faith in the security system at the airport. Here I am in my LuLu Lemons, bubbly blonde with a baseball hat and ‘I’ am always getting selected. Their selection process is shit. LOL The only threat I  would be is threatening people with a good time! Waa waaaaa! I am Da Bomb! Bombshell blonde, that’s about how explosive I get 😀 High calibre DDs, maybe! Anyways, I started to get frustrated with always being selected so I decided to pack my promo in my carry on, so that when the security officer opened my bag, my 18×36 nude posters would unravel along with my magnets. And it worked! The security officer opened my carry on to search my bag and when my posters fell out, he turned bright red. I told him he could have one if he wanted and I’d sign it for him 😉 He declined.

Nothing like this as a conversation starter to new people you’ve just met over dinner!

So let me guess….you want to hear the one about the sex toys, don’t you? Well, here is one for you. As some of you know, I used to have a well known duo called the Natural Blonde Thrillers and we used to do fully choreographed shows with skits. We were sensual not sexual and had a comedy component to our shows. This one time we were going through airport security and the female officer says she needs to look in our bag. Realizing that the bag had sexual content in it I told the security officer she’d need to take that bag aside as it contained inappropriate materials in it and we were around families. I was dying inside!! We had penis water guns, a penis pump and a huge strap on that we used in our Beauty and the Beast show! (I was the beast and would chase beauty around the stage with the strap on-it was hilarious!) She opened the bag, closed it with a look of disgust on her face and handed it to me angrily. I was trying to explain, “We don’t actually use those on each other! We are a duo act, it’s all for show! We are just friends!” She says firmly, ” I DON’T WANT TO KNOW” and walks away. You’d think we’d learn from that buuuut we didn’t.

The Show Did Not Go On

During one of my bookings in Australia, I was scheduled to do a show at a pub that was out in the middle of nowhere, literally, you drive down the hwy 45 mins from the city and if you blinked, you’d miss the pub that was at the side of the road. It felt like the real outback. Upon arrival I was met with the 2 gentlemen that were running the show and they were both very sweet and accommodating. I had performed there the week before and my Darth Vader show was a huge hit with these outback Aussies. They were very interactive playing along with my light saber slashes and my Star Wars theatrics!

This time around they had asked me to do more crowd interaction and to dance on the tables. Of course I’m game! I don’t mind playing around and interacting with audience more, bring it on!  So I step out to do my show, as my intro begins I walk over to a full table of enthusiastic customers and two men reach out to grab my hands to help me step up onto their table. Between the momentum of them lifting me up and my 5 inch stilettos, I ended up bumping my head. I was like, “Oh well…I bumped my head, no big deal, on with the show.” FB_IMG_1488656817257

As I crouch down to do a little tittie ra- ra, shimmying from the left to the right, I notice that the guy right in front of me looked like he had seen a ghost. In my mind I was thinking, this is not how a man looks when he is being tittalized lol. As I look down, I see blood on the table. I check my head with my hand and blood was on my hand. So I proceed to wipe my head with my cape, thinking I must’ve scratched myself and would just need to wipe the blood off but after taking the cape off my head it was soaked in blood, then the blood started rushing down my face. The guy sitting in front of me stands up and tells me he’s going to help me off the table, lifting me down onto the ground.

As I start to head back to the office where us girls get ready for the shows, the MC says, “And where is she going now?” I look over to him with blood gushing down my face and he immediately says, “She is going to the change-room! The next show will be in 10 mins!” As I walk into the change-room, the two other dancers and a bar owner look at me in horror and start racing around looking for a first aid kit. I was pretty calm and collected but with how anxious everyone else was I could tell I must’ve looked bad. Cass took the reigns and started to clean the gash and the blood that was everywhere. Heidi got ready and went onstage in my place. Everyone just moved into survivor mode. After placing pressure on the wound for a while, it stopped bleeding-yaaay, no stitches required! I really, really did not want to go to the hospital. Once Heidi came back from her show she mentioned that the fans were on and that’s what hit my head. I dodged a serious bullet on that one! It could’ve been way worse but I was fortunate enough to walk away with a small cut on my head. 

The best part was when I was all cleaned up, one of 20170511_201533the guys who worked there looked at me and asked if I’d be ready to go back onstage in 5 mins…. and of course, me being a true blue #albertastrong super trooper who just soldiers on said yes, if you want me to, I can go on. Cass raises her voice, shocked at the suggestion and said, “There is no way Janine is going on! She lost a lot of blood! Me and Heidi will go back on stage and do a show!”

I just laughed at the craziness of the whole situation. Only twice in my loooong career did the show not go on. And it as was a full moon taboot! The manager asked if I could come back the following week, they were disappointed I couldn’t perform and did so well the week before, that they were excited to have me there. I appreciated that, considering I just had a blood bath on their table and it wasn’t Halloween! Funny enough, I was wearing my Devil costume 😛

It was an unfortunate accident that happened but everyone was SO good to me, especially Cass and her sexy nursing abilities lol The pub, owners, staff and customers were all extremely attentive and I hope to one day go back there and redeem myself…with my vampire show! bahahaha naaaa, maybe I’ll keep it simple and just stay on the stage.


DOWN in DENVER for MNW & MNEU

Yep, I made it down to Denver to compete in Miss Nude Universe and Miss Nude World! Totally last minute decision. Feeling an uprush of creative energy, renewed faith and inspiration and am indulging in my performances. I do In-Joy the stage so much. Already won some awards: 2nd place Miss Nude Exotic Universe, Universe Entertainer of the Year and Best Aerial Performance! NOW it’s time to get back in the saddle, refocus and tweak shows for MISS NUDE WORLD…the BIG one….the one I’m going for! Sh$# just got real 😀

I’m performing my LED FROZEN SHOW and STAR WARS, as they were my highest scoring shows so far. For the first time I feel at ease, no contest head or contest gitters, just moving through this experience with lightness and fun. Keeping my shows consistent and familiar is the key. Not trying to whip out anything new or never done before and keeping stage crew’s involvement as minimal as possible…however, I will say, they have been EPIC so far. Jason Cherry has been doing a great job on my shows. Usually stage crew has made costly mistakes with me but Im feeling comfortable with how things are flowing so far. A few tweaks needed for Frozen but nothing major. I’m having SO much fun and the girls on this trip are a blast! Aussie Aussie Aussie!!!

The club, PLATINUM 84, along with all their staff are AMAZING and beeeeautiful. I’m definitely fired up and makes me think…I’ve still got a lot in me. I do loooove it down here in the States. Feeling inspired and do see a ton of potential. Wish me luck, peeps :)

I also have magazines to sell to anyone who wants one and I will personally sign my spread just for you. They are $25.00 USD and you can etransfer jerichog@live.com or through PayPal.  A limited amount are available, so let me know asap. Thanks, peeps!

P.S. If you’d like to check out some video of my shows, they are posted on my Facebook Fan page, Janine Jericho

Breaking the Stereotypes

As many of you know, there is a stereotypical perception around exotic dancers and I feel like addressing that today. For the most part, I have been extremely fortunate to have been shielded from this stigma, I believe it’s because of how I conduct myself and my business, however, I haven’t been completely except and seeing that this is an ongoing issue that affects everyone in the biz, it’s time to share a little, uncover a few layers of the onion.

I’ve ALWAYS prided myself in my showgirl status, performing elite shows with huge, exquisite costumes combined with many specialty skills such as fire, aerials, pole and showmanship; like something you’d think you see in Las Vegas. I LOVE entertaining and connecting with audiences and have always gravitated towards creative facets, such as music-having my own band which I managed and was a singer/songwriter for, acting and stunting in the film industry, writing, personal training (inspiring and designing programs for people to help them reach their goals) and of course, dancing.211-jericho-green-997

What I LOVE about my showgirl career, let me count the ways lol: Embodying feminine energy and confidence and exuberating that energy on stage through the art of creating an erotic journey, the athletics I demonstrate with pole fitness, dance ability and circus skills, creating characters that audiences with love and connect with, designing the music that takes my audience through a playful and entertaining experience, developing shows that are creative with props and special effects that people want to come back in to be a part of the experience, that ‘Sweet Spot’ when I am completely connected to the audience, being able to fill a room and most importantly INSPIRE people around the globe through my own story and performances!

See, so far there’s more than meets the eye, even in the driving motivations behind creating the shows. I am an empowered woman who is tapped into her sensuality, sexuality, feminity and have chosen the stage as my platform and playground to demonstrate that. I am not some dysfunctional party girl, using drugs and alcohol, being promiscuous and that has daddy issues LOL I come from a loving and supportive family, I am a national level, natural athlete, I have excelled in 2 other careers and have a long list of accolades. I am a business woman first, creative artist second. And I’m not the only one! Many girls in this industry have interesting stories to share.

What had prompted me to write this blog was a random comment made from someone in regards to being a high priced escort from having a wishlist and receiving gifts from customers…at first I completely dismissed this because it was SO stupid and ignorant I didn’t think people actually would believe that. I mean, dancing on stage in an glamorous, expensive costume, performing acrobatics and high energy dance routines where NO ONE can touch you is completely different from having sex with strangers for money and gifts…Not to mention if I or any other elite, headlining, showgirl had that reputation you would NOT be booked. Venues do not want that behavior attached to their name. It is frowned upon. CLEARLY people understand the EPIC difference…I mean, I make more than enough money to buy my own damn gifts! And I do! But in this biz your fans sometimes want to express their appreciation, so it is common to receive things as well but without any intention whatsoever in the sex department.1398226_1504910176435221_4117733367774695836_o

But nope, this person in the beginning really did question that. I guess the being naked part equalled being openly sexual, too lol quite honestly, I VALUE myself, I have deep self-worth and self-love and am traditional in the intimacy department. I DON’T believe in just giving yourself to anyone. I don’t believe that sex is just sex. I believe in honouring yourself and sharing yourself with someone you have mutual feelings for. Meaningful sex only. So yes, provocative on stage, more traditional in my private life.

What’s also interesting is that I have more female followers than I do male. And many of these young girls and women are inspired by the energy I project, for I think they feel their own sensuality, desire and feminine energy heighten from my reflection, I have explained this before. I had a full front row of screaming ladies (not uncommon for me) and a male customer made a comment about how all the women were lesbians.  “Maybe a few!, “ I replied with a giggle, “But the majority, nope, just women out showing their appreciation for anot12717816_1673355952950237_2100761484536767424_nher woman’s sexiness and sensuality. It is a girl power era! I love it! It definitely helps break down that stigma over dancers because women can come into clubs and see for themselves what goes on.

I have never felt the need to hide what I do. In certain situations I may be more discreet but for the most part, I am proud of my accomplishments and what this career has done for me. Being authentic doesn’t come from what you do, it comes from who you are and when you are being true to yourself, you are being authentic, and when you are being authentic, you will flow that into what you do. So many people talk about taking the road less traveled, be yourself, follow your heart but many of those same people are the first to judge you when you do.  I personally don’t care, I am a self-made woman and a successful one at that. I wouldn’t be here if I listened to other people’s judgments and opinions. Their opinions of me are none of my business. It’s their issue, not mine and I don’t make it mine.

When I conceived my son at a young age everyone said that if I kept him, I wouldn’t make it, I’d become another welfare statistic and my modelling career would be over…I owned my first house and vehicle by the time I was 21, traveled the world, had tons of modelling jobs and a successful band but most importantly, he was the BEST thing that has ever happened to me and he makes me proud everyday. We DID make it, above and beyond what even I thought I could do.

When I decided to put a band together, everyone sagforceid that it was a cut throat industry, you’ll never make it, why don’t you get a ‘real’ job…. a year later we sang for Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, were on the front page of the newspaper, appeared on E.TV, Global Television, Shaw TV, Online TV and had several publications. When I decided to work in a gym I was told it was a man’s industry, don’t bother trying to move up….within 3 months I was the top producer in the company and in 6 months I moved into management.12109090_1633703310248835_1187069398559936134_n

When I decided to compete in a fitness competition, everyone said I wouldn’t win, it’s political, you need to pay your dues….and I won my first show. When I was going down to the States to compete in dancing contests everyone said they will never let a Canadian win one of their contests, I not only won 2 big titles, one of them being Miss Nude USA (yes, this Canadian girl won a US title…clearly it wasn’t political LMAO I just did the biggest show, a show that couldn’t lose) but also a slew of mini titles!!1512425_1594429084149996_4417752392969678224_n

These are just a few examples of where I’ve been and what I’ve done. There are so many more lol but I’ll share these ones with you for now. If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that happiness is an inside job. You cannot make anyone else happy or accept you for who you are…and that’s OK. It’s not about making everyone else happy it’s about making yourself happy. And when you are in alignment with your passions and journey, your happiness with be felt by those around you and though they still might not love your choices, they might not battle with you on them because they like how they feel when they around your positive, authentic vibes. And for those who don’t, it’s their loss, not yours.

mnusa2ahhh delving deep! And there are other ladies with stories just as thick, if not more. Never judge a book by it’s cover, you just might miss how interesting the story really is.IMG_20150915_013838


Road to the World’s

Road to the World’s and Exotic Universe 2016

I have been invited to compete in Exotic Nude Universe and Miss Nude World this year and am seriously considering it, I think I have one more contest in me. I have evolved my shows quite a bit over the last 2 years and I think it’d be a great way to end my final year in the dancing industry.
To help cover the expenses of the travel and competing, I’ve decided to sell my promo for a minimum donation of $20 or more, which all will go towards my, ‘Road to The Worlds’ cause. I also think this will be a fun and interactive journey to take with all of my supporters. I will post video clips of my contest prep and give you all an inside look at how I’m getting ready for the contest 😀

As many of you know, 2016 has not been the easiest year for me. I was faced with many challenges and heart aches along the way. It definitely has been a year of endings, personal growth, new chapters…dealt with a few heavy hearted betrayalsmiss-nude-world-promo, my family losing a lot in a forest fire and the trauma that went along with that devastation and the financial loss, my car becoming a money pit…one of those year’s that really tested me on every level to the limit buuuut I not only moved forward keeping the vision of my dreams clear but moved through it all with epic it grace, tenacity and ‘balls to the wall’ determination, not allowing the negative situations to have any power over me and my dreams.

I’m happy to say that I’m now feeling on top of the world these days and things have been moving in an AMAZING direction for me. I’ve let go of a lot of crap, my mind and heart are clear and I have a  renewed sense of passion and inspiration, I’d like to just go for it!! In everything! End the year 2016 on a victorious note, both on the inside and the outside. If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s to always see  the brightside, that things WILL always get better but how fast is really up to you. You can waver in feeling down and out which will just attract more negative experiences when hovering it that energy or let go and move on. Moving forward is freedom. And letting go isn’t giving up, it’s understanding that the best is yet to come

Last time I did the World’s, I didn’t even make podium. Every girl brought her A game and the competition was not only fierce but SO close. There was no clear front runner, which is common in a lot of contests, as each contestant was GREAT. It came down to mistakes…with a contest so close it only took one mistake to knock you out of placing and that’s what happened with me. My first show for the World’s was excellent, nailed it with a lot of perfect scores, it actually won me 2nd place in Exotic Nude Universe. But my second show bombed with a few mistakes that happened with the stage crew and it bumped me right out of placing. That year Isabelle Deltoire won, Layla Dash took second and Justice took third…and she was crippled! LOL YES, my bestie made podium one handed, she killed it! BUT in the end, all had consistently great back to back shows and deserved their placings fair and square.
If I do it this year, I have learned from my previous mistakes and am hoping to nail my shows with the same consistencfixed-with-goldy and greatness those girls maintained.
So let’s do this peeps!! Join me on this journey! If you’d like to buy a poster or magnets you can send me an etransfer to jerichog@live.com, use PayPal or my GoFundMe page. Send me a message or email with your mailing address and I’ll send a piece of promo out to you. Onward and upward!!
NOW….WHAT shows should I perform???
