When my wife and I were dating I had a one night stand with her best friend Diana. It was a one time thing but I can’t seem to forget it. Even though Diana and I are close friends I sometimes see her as something more. I love my wife but married life can become monotonous, especially being around single women on a daily basis for my job as a male stripper.

Personality: Riley is a fun loving guy who acts younger than he really is. Sometimes it’s hard to take him serious because he’s always joking around or making funny impressions of people. Besides goofing around Riley loves to dance, often coming up with his own quirky moves. He’s mild mannered and doesn’t enjoy confrontation, but he isn’t a guy to back down from a fight or a challenge. Lying is one of his flaws, but he’s so scathingly good at it, that’s it’s hard to distinguish it from the truth. With his handsome good looks and smooth disposition, any girl would find him desirable even though he wears a wedding band on his finger.
Biography: Being a stripper was never Riley’s dream job in life. When he was in high school he always imagined moving to Los Angeles to become an actor or a model, since he certainly had the looks for it. He even got involved in the theater club at school, doing a few musicals just to get some acting experience. His family wasn’t very wealthy and by the time Riley graduated from high school, there was little money for him to go to college. Being raised by only his mother because his father walked out when he was a baby, Riley felt like he couldn’t abandon his mother and go to LA to pursue his acting career. Not only that, his mother Lucy was plagued with Parkinson’s disease, which caused her to stop working when Riley was in his early 20’s. Feeling obligated to take care of his mother like she had always taken care of him, Riley stayed in Miami to be by her side.
Not having a college degree did put a damper on job opportunities for him. For a short time he worked in construction, but after 5 months he couldn’t take it any longer and quit. By the age of 21 he managed to get his bartender’s license and landed a job at a male strip club called The Black Stallion. Bartending wasn’t his forte but he managed to make decent money at night while taking care of his mother during the day. After working there for a few months his boss asked if he ever considered stripping. Riley certainly was no stranger to a stage, but he never took his clothes off on one. It wasn’t that he was shy, he just never thought of the idea before. It took Riley some time to contemplate his boss’s offer and after seeing what his friend Gunnar made in a night, he was convinced to at least give it a shot. Riley could act and dance, why not add stripping to the mix? It turned out that he was perfect for the job, clearing well over $500 his first night on stage. It just came natural to him, as if he were in a play playing some role other than himself.
When Riley met Olivia on a trip to visit a friend in Wichita, Kansas, he instantly felt a special connection with her. Not only was she smart and beautiful, she had a terrific sense of humor, something he could appreciate in a woman. He’d never forget the day he met her randomly in a coffee shop. She was so beautiful that he couldn’t take his eyes off of her. For about a year they maintained a long distance relationship, which was difficult for both of them. Whenever he could take off work he’d fly to Kansas just to spend a couple days with her. It was lonely without her and there were times they’d have to rely on phone calls, texting or Skyping to one another. When boredom really took over he’d find himself hanging out with his close friend Diana. One night while they were listening to music and slinging back a few beers, one thing led to another and the two of them had sex. They vowed never to tell anyone, especially Olivia because they didn’t want to hurt her for their mistake. Riley figured he would eventually tell Olivia about the indiscretion but it never seemed like the right time. Despite having some feelings for Diana, he ended up proposing to Olivia about six months later. He truly loved her and he knew that once she’d move to Miami with him, things would be right on tract.
