are you looking for a good time?
Are you longing for a positive change, inspiration, something to set you on fire? Do you want to laugh and dance, eat and drink, relax and grow…in the luxury and comfort you so seldom receive but so deeply deserve?
I see you—longing for an escape from the drudgeries of everyday life. Looking for the time and space to devote to your growth and happiness. Wishing for more people in your life that truly understand you. Hoping to carve a good time out of your busy schedule..somewhere, somehow. Wishing you could be free, really free—if only for a few days.
Well, friend—here’s your chance. I’ve got all the connections you need.
Join me and a dozen of my friends on a four night, three day luxury getaway + personal growth retreat set in a gorgeous and expansive Victorian Baronial castle with stunning views overlooking Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde in Scotland. Our first session running June 22nd -26th sold out in less than 48 hours. By popular demand, we’ve added a second session starting June 15th – 19th.
The STRIPCASTLE VIP Retreat is a women-only, badassery-cultivating, sexy-dancing, dream-creating, plan-writing, photoshoot-taking, massage-receiving, good-meal-eating, hot-tub-relaxing, lap-dance-giving good time designed to bring together likeminded women interested in expanding our spirits, moving our bodies, crafting a vision for our futures, and creating bonds with friends new and old.
It’s time to learn who the hell you are, how to love that person, and how to nurture her into greatness.
Dare to invest in you.
You’ll be thanking yourself if you do, and kicking yourself if you don’t. So, you wanna get wild, sexy, and enlightened with some badass babes in a castle overlooking a loch in the green hills of Scotland?
Here’s why you deserve to be among a badass group of women empowering our minds and bodies while having the time of our lives in a castle all to ourselves:
This is your chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy the pampering you so rarely get to experience.
Picture it: no cooking, no cleaning, no chores. Now, replace those responsibilities with: delicious fully-catered meals, an amazing massage by my personal masseuse, an empowering photoshoot, late-night chats by fireplace, early morning walks around the castle grounds, happy gal pals in great moods, secrets shared in the red velvet sitting room, not to mention the amazing learning experiences for both body and mind lead by Dr. Lindsay Byron aka Lux ATL and her dear friends and guest instructors Felix Cane, Alethea Austin and Kitty Velour.
Your creative ideas and dreams can only flourish under committed and dedicated hours,
and yet—if you’re like a lot of us—you find it hard to carve that time out of your day-to-day life. Nonetheless, your brilliance deserves commitment—in fact, only through commitment can you ever achieve your full level of badassery.
Life owes you nothing. You owe life everything.
Only you can author the existence you desire. This is your chance to dedicate three days to actively cultivating a better you through self-care, critical thinking, sensual movement, sisterhood, and joy. The laundry can wait—you can’t.
It’s time to wake up from your fog
and steer yourself in the direction of exactly the life you desire.
You might as well do so in a castle with a glass of wine in hand!
Here’s what’s included:
Four nights luxury accommodations
for you and a roommate (or two or three!) in one of the 11 bedroom suites featuring a mix of single and double beds. This means you’ll enjoy a combination of comfort, privacy, as well as fellowship with friends old and new.
A signature Stripcastle kick-off party
Thursday evening featuring expert exotic dancers Lux ATL, Felix Cane, Alethea Austin, and Kitty Velour stripping down to their birthday suits and putting on real-deal stripper stage shows! Not to mention—there will be free lap dances for all! Perhaps you want to give a dance yourself? Be my guest! Want to take the stage and show us what you’ve got? We can’t wait to watch! At the Stripcastle VIP Retreat, you will be able to enjoy all the delights of the club—plus live out fantasies of your own—with zero of the annoyances or discomfort of an actual strip club. Welcome to the Stripcastle VIP Retreat, where you are our top customer and will be treated as such!

You’ll have plenty of time to explore Scotland during your stay at the castle. We’ll enjoy Glasgow on Saturday for lunch, dinner, and drinks, and we’ll explore the local area around the castle on Sunday. Who’s up for a pint in a traditional Scottish pub?
The company of likeminded women
ready to have a great time, share wisdom, roll around the dance floor, and spread love. You’ll make friends and create bonds that last a lifetime in this intimate and happy setting.
And finally, a flat-out good time.

Have you ever hosted an event like this before?
In April 2016, I hosted a similar (but smaller) wildly successful event called Stripcabin. This event was a fundraiser for my performance in Miss Pole Dance America, and operated on a more modest scale, lasting two nights and one day. In November 2016, I will be hosting Stripcabin VIP Lodge which is a three night, three day luxury retreat including workshops, massages, food, photography). Like Stripcabin VIP Lodge, Stripcastle is a luxury vacation, a personal growth engine, and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to bond and network with other badass women.
Women travelled from all over the globe to be part of the short and sweet first Stripcabin as they will for the Stripcabin VIP Lodge!
Where exactly is the castle located?

How can I get to the castle?

Curious if this retreat is for you? Wondering if you’ll have fun? Just listen to what attendees of the original Stripcabin have to say about their experiences:
“There are so many things that made this past weekend amazing! Getting turns on the pole and watching my idols dance was probably the best part for me; along with hanging out naked in the hot tub just talking about some real life shit until 5am. It was so nice being able to be surrounded by beautiful women who didn’t care about my gender or sexual orientation, but actually loved it; and that we could talk about real shit, like coming out to your family. I don’t feel I have many friends in this current stage of my life, but now I feel so close to all of you—it was life changing. Thank you for one of the best weekends I have had in a long time, love you all and can’t wait to see what’s next!”
sam buck, denver colorado
“I am now on the train to London for another days hard graft in the big smoke, and thought I’d do some daydreaming about last weekend. In no particular order, here are some memories:
Meeting lots of people for the first time and feeling like we’d been friends for ages
Not having to think or talk about corporate bollocks for a few days
Getting really dressed up in a way that would normally induce harassment
Being too drunk to remember any coherent pole moves so just smugly took my clothes off instead
Excelling my Anglo Saxon drinking skills with neat cinnamon vodka (it didn’t burn after the third shot) on top of light beer
Eagerly watching lots of lap dances and pole wizardry
Having to say stuff in an English accent and automatically inducing mirth
Not leaving the cabin at all, not feeling guilty
Making the hottub overflow and squirt water
The pretty view and wondering how far away in miles England was…
I miss you all and can’t wait to see what’s next!”
martha phillips, york england
“Even though I have a quiet and reserved energy, I had a smile on my face 24/7 all weekend. All of you beautiful ladies made me feel so welcome and comfortable. I was very impressed by everyone’s pole skills, and I could watch Lux, Dani, and Michelle dance for hours upon hours. Really, you ladies were exquisite! The only thing that could of made it better is having more days, more lap dances, and lap dance lessons! I can’t wait until next time!”
erica acosta, lafayette, la
“First and foremost, I already miss you guys dearly. This amazing trip would not be possible without having met all of you awesome ladies! I loved the welcoming energies of everyone, the lap dances, performances, drunken debauchery, the massage, the conversations, Cards Against Humanity (brilliant idea), hot tub mishaps (LOL), and most importantly the LAUGHS! I usually act a damn fool with my silliness but I had no time simply because I was always preoccupied with gut wrenching laughter! I absolutely loved was the beautiful weather and scenery, the serene calmness of the mountains, and the exquisite cabin. I’d love to have a lesson of some sort from LUX for the next go round. However, I loved all the down time we had to chill and relax.”
mia symonette, houston, tx
“Lux has graduated from the difficult work of stripper, has kept her self esteem intact, and successfully used her hard work to begin an independent career as a bad ass! All the while, empowering other women in so many ways. She exemplifies what I dream of for so many underclass women. I am beyond thrilled to have been part of Stripcabin, which I personally view as a celebration of Lux’s new independent career. I also am also grateful to have the opportunity to have met Lindsay, the woman behind “Lux ATL.” It was also wonderful to feel successful in my own personal struggles. Women are full of body issues, and growing up in this trans body has been really painful. My body image is fairly good now, after years of hard work, and I never thought I could get where I am. It was amazing to feel the freedom to dance in a judgment free space, and it felt so good to make it rain! Massages, hot tub, dancing, Cards Against Humanity. It was all so perfect. My only wish is that it would have lasted longer.”
juno krahn, durham, nc
