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 eleven other guests on a five night, four day luxury getaway + personal growth retreat set in a luxurious oceanfront mansion nestled among the sea dunes of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Let’s escape to the lazy beach town of Corolla, where herds of wild horses roam along the shore, as we plot out our wildest dreams, challenge ourselves, share our wisdom — in my most intimate retreat yet.
STRIPCOAST is a women-only, badassery-cultivating, dream-creating, one-on-one coaching, plan-writing, creative-challenge-completing, sexy-dancing, photoshoot-taking, massage-receiving, good-meal-eating, pool-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 cabana overlooking the gorgeous beaches of the Outer Banks?
Want in for Stripcoast? 10 spots remain so don’t delay!
“I didn’t known it could be like this. I have awesome female friends and I’ve been to nice “women’s circles” and actually my training group for therapy is nearly all women… and I still didn’t know it could be like that. I didn’t know we could be like that for each other. That there are alternate ways of building communities, being vulnerable, being sexual.”
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 vast beach cottage all to ourselves:
This is your opportunity to dedicate real time, energy, and focus to finding your calling, learning your strengths, and maximizing your greatness–under the guidance of folks who’ve been where you are and have come out on the other side with exactly the life they desire. Not only that, but 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: inspiring workshops, one-on-one counseling, delicious fully-catered meals, an amazing massage by a personal masseuse, an empowering photoshoot, late-night chats by the pool, early morning walks down the beach, happy gal pals in great moods, secrets shared in the hot tub, not to mention the amazing learning experiences for both body and mind lead by Dr. Lindsay Byron aka Lux ATL and her dear friend, author and enterprising super babe Jacqueline Francis, AKA Jacq the Stripper.
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 four 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 among the wild horses along the shores of Corolla!

Here’s what’s included:
Five Nights of Luxury Accommodation Enjoy your stay in a honest to goodness (or badness if you prefer) oceanfront mega-cottage as we work through deep discussions, share secrets, and laughs. You and a roommate (or not, if you prefer to sleep alone!) will reside in one of the 8 bedroom suites in this oceanfront beach mansion, with each bedroom featuring deck access. This means you’ll enjoy a combination of comfort, privacy, as well as fellowship with friends old and new. Enjoy a beautiful natural landscape as you relax and focus on the cultivation of your best self from a place of positivity and joy.
A Signature STRIPCOAST Kick-off Party
Saturday evening featuring world-famous strippers Lux ATL and Jacq the Stripper taking it down to their birthday suits and putting on real-deal stripper stage shows! Not to mention—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 Stripcoast, 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 Stripcoast, where you are our top customer and will be treated as such!
Five Hours of Workshops
designed to empower your mind and your body. You will have the great honor of learning from Lux, Jacq, and one special guest teacher over the course of our time together. These workshops will not only help you find your story, move your body, and own your unique greatness, but will moreover assist you in the completion of our creative challenge–a TED-style talk in which each guest is invited to share a grain of wisdom with the group!
“Lux” is Latin for “light”–and with this creative challenge, I invite all Stripcoast guests to share a mini TED-style talk in which they illuminate a grain of their unique wisdom for the benefit of the other guests. Workshops–plus plenty of free writing time–will help you compose exactly the message you wish to send…and in the process, you’ll grow a greater self-awareness of your own gifts and talents.
One-on-One Coaching Sessions with Lux
Need help finding your way? Want to silence that nagging voice that puts you down? Want to build that business? Want to identify your strengths and figure out how to wield them? For the first time ever, I will be offering one-on-one time with each of my retreat guests to help them formulate a plan for whatever life is throwing at ya. We will be in touch before the retreat so that you can give me an overview of what you wish to discuss and I can begin thinking of solutions before we meet.
Fantastic Outer Banks Adventures
You’ll hop in a Jeep and ride down the coast to watch the wild horses play. You’ll take evening walks to the pier with your feet in the surf. You’ll enjoy a crab boil as the sun sets. Hell–why not venture into town for some saltwater taffy? Or perhaps meet Lux on the beach for one of her favorite activities–boogie boarding!
A Beautiful Photoshoot With Cindy Johnson
In your thirty-minute private session, our amazingly talented photographer will push you to show your vulnerable side as well as your sexy side. You’ll be able to change outfits and locations during the shoot, plus you can decide how far you want to strip down. We’ll provide more details as Stripcoast approaches.
Candid behind the scenes photos
We will also provide candid behind the scenes photos of the entire retreat, and all attendees will receive a link to that gallery to download at no charge.
A fifty minute massage
by my personal masseuse. Each attendee will have the option of Swedish or Deep Tissue massage, tailored specifically to your problem areas. Enjoy aromatic oils and beautiful views as you relax your cares away!
Delicious and healthy meals fully catered
Our private chef, Tiffany, will prepare all our fresh, healthy, and delicious food. Retreat guests consistently rave over Tiffany’s cooking! You don’t have to do a thing except show up hungry at mealtime — our catering staff will take care of the rest!
Enjoy the sleepy coastal town of Corolla
Unlike many oceanfront cities in the US, the Outer Banks is perhaps best known for its seclusion and privacy. You won’t find rowdy frat parties and high-rise hotels here–just beach cottages cozied up among the dunes. Prepare to relax your ass off.
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.
Late night gab sessions, clothing-optional dance parties, margaritas by the pool, dreams shared under the stars, amazing adventures, a dreamy massage overlooking the pristine beach, a photoshoot that encourages pride and love for your body: this is how you’ll spend your plentiful downtime at Stripcoast. There’s no pressure and no chores. Instead, you will learn and you will grow—and you will find the whole damn experience relaxing and delightful.
“I didn’t realise I could fall in love with so many people in so little time. Feeling more confident in myself and more free, I won’t be pleasing others so much–I feel reinforced in my ‘screw em..I’ll do what I like attitude’. Everyone of you became someone I look up to. I’m still in awe of the whole experience now, and I’m totally coming again so I can party into the early hours. I’ve realised there’s so much more I can do, so many more adventures to take. Stripcastle has been one of the best experiences of my life, truly.
“Stripcastle engaged and refreshed me in the middle of a particularly trying year. I loved bonding with so many thoughtful, fantastic, dynamite women in a nonjudgmental environment, taking challenging workshops, joining the dance party, singing at the clothing-optional karaoke session, enjoying scenery conducive to peaceful reflection, and discussing ways to maximize potential and realize dreams. Such a worthwhile experience.

At my last retreats, we had pediatricians to morticians to doulas to dominatrixes in attendance. All attendees will be fully vetted by Lux through the application process. It is my priority to create a safe and joyful space for my fellow bad bitches with good hearts! Come prepared to meet some of your newest best friends from all over the country—even the world! Coming alone and worried that you’ll be the fifth wheel in a group full of already-close friends? Think again—most guests will be arriving by themselves, and will be ready to make new pals, just like you.
What is the room share situation?
There are 9 bedrooms in the mansion. Some rooms have queen beds and others have king beds. You will choose between 2 single rooms and 5 shared rooms. Most attendees will share a room with other Stripcoast sisters and most will share a bed. Of course, you can request to room-share with a friend—or simply have a slumber party with new friends! If you wish to room with specific friends, you’ll have the opportunity to let us know after you confirm your enrollment and Lux will make every effort to accommodate. Your cost will vary depending upon which option you select.
Will people be naked?
Perhaps, occasionally. The dancers will dance topless at the kick-off party. All attendees may feel free to dress as sexy as they like, and reveal as much as they desire. Attendees will be invited to participate in “Amateur Night” during the kick-off party so that all ladies can have a chance to play stripper if they so desire! Several of the workshops offer partial-nudity options as well. As a reminder, this is an all-woman event and a safe space of body positivity and sisterhood. We love your body, no matter the shape or size, and hope you love ours right back!
What will we eat? What if I have special dietary needs?
All meals will be fully catered and will be yummy and healthy! Our chef will be making the meals on site and you’ll be blown away by the fresh food.

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 hosted Stripcabin VIP Lodge which was a three night, three day luxury retreat including workshops, massages, food, and photography. This event was a huge success and inspired me to host even more retreats. In June 2017, I hosted two back to back retreats in a crazy Scotish castle. Plus, I’m hosting another upcoming international retreat in March of 2018 with two sessions in Costa Rica. Stripcoast will be my most initimate retreat yet though with only 12 guests focused on creating something brilliant to share with their sister attendees and the world. Stripcoast is a luxury vacation, a personal growth engine, and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to bond and network with other badass women.
Women travel from all over the globe to be part of these retreats!
Where exactly is the beach mansion located?
Our beach mansion is located on the gorgeous, relaxing beaches of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We’ll have access to the entire house, pool, outdoor space, and insane beaches just steps away from the property.
How can I get to the coast?
You’ll fly into the nearest airport of Norfolk International Airport and take a quick 2 hour drive to the property. But don’t worry, we’ll provide all the details as the event approaches.
take the risk of unapologetic self-love and badassery cultivation, and I guarantee…
The investment you make in Stripoast is an investment in your holistic growth, a chance to commit real time and attention toward understanding exactly who you are and what you desire, and an opportunity to devote concerted attention to cultivating your best self. Furthermore, you will enjoy an unforgettable long week of contentment, fun, and relaxation; new connections and alliances with other badass women; delicious and healthy meals; a massage to relax away your worries; and a photo shoot sure to make you feel like a goddess.
When was the last time you devoted real time and energy to the loving cultivation of yourself? Here’s your chance. Stripcoast is not a frivolous luxury—it is a real commitment to crafting exactly the life you desire.
I did it—and so can you.
The Stripcoast retreat is an investment in your holistic well-being that you deserve, desire, and will never forget.

Wondering what really happens at these retreats?
In April 2016, I hosted a 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 hosted Stripcabin VIP Lodge which was a three night, three day luxury retreat including workshops, massages, food, photography) and huge success. Women traveled from all over the globe to be part of this retreat! Take a peek at this behind the scenes view of Stripcabin. We had pediatricians to morticians to doulas to dominatrixes in attendance for this fabulous fun-filled, personal growth factory, and crazy luxury relaxing event.
I then held my first international event with a retreat in the summer of 2017 in Scotland, Stripcastle. The fervor was so high for this event that the first session sold out in 72 hours and I added a second session by popular demand. I’m holding another Stripcabin in November 2017 with many returning attendees who loved the event so much they are coming back for more! I also have my second international event coming up in march of 2018 in Costa Rica. Again, the first session sold out in just two days and the demand was so high we added a second retreat. But again, we will NOT be adding a second retreat for Stripcoast so I urge you not to delay! I’ve got events on either side of this retreat already booked so it will be the one and only option for you.
Women travel from all over the globe to be part of these retreats!
Still curious if this retreat is for you? Wondering if you’ll have fun? Just listen to what attendees of my retreats have to say about their experiences:
“I spend a lot of time feeling like a lone, feminist wolf, and Stripcastle was one of the only places I’ve felt like I belonged, just as I am, with no need to change to make others more comfortable.
“For me, although StripCastle was literally a dream come true, a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I was also shitting my pants in the days leading up to it….But my anxieties were totally unfounded in the end. I spent Thursday night to Monday morning with some of the most beautiful, intelligent talented, and all-round badass ladies I have met in my entire life. I ate the best food, took the best workshops, had the best conversations, slept in the most comfortable bed, shared with the most beautiful room-mates…. there is not one bad thing I can say about Stripcastle. I came back a changed woman and I am counting the days until I can do another retreat!
“You lovely ladies have ruined me. I’ve been unhappy in my job for a while. The work environment is nice, but the work itself is draining and I dread everytime the phone rings. Nothing has made me want to take up smoking or alcoholism like these calls. I had a “plan” that was just, save money until you can switch to part-time and train full-time. But that’s vague.
So thank you for ruining me because now I want to make a real plan, with deadlines and budgets so that I can be out of here by next review period. Nothing like being one of the top tier workers that carry this department while others just watch sports all day on their monitors and maybe getting a whopping 47 cent raise every year.”
“I’ve been working on articulating my post-Stripcabin feelings, and reading all you ladies’ lovely words has definitely helped. It took a little, but I think I figured it out.
What’s stuck with me most from this weekend wasn’t just seeing all of you beautiful women in your element, though that was part of it. What I can’t seem to shake is the exquisite joy of being seen. I’ve been terrified of allowing myself to be truly seen for so long, and now I don’t think I could live any other way. It’s unmatchable. I don’t think I realized how empty I was until you, my beautiful sisters, until I danced with you, talked with you, laughed with you, cried with you, until you all saw me and I saw you in a way that left us entirely bare to each other, physically and emotionally. You have filled me and I have a well to draw from again because of you.
I love you, sisters. You have changed me. Thank you for existing and sharing your time with me.”
“Somewhere on 58 between South Boston and Danville and crying from the depths of my soul… I still haven’t words to describe what has happened to me because of Stripcabin…”
“Ladies we are all together in this…. yesterday I came home from work danced for Stephanie and had her in awe at what I learned and then I broke down into a hot mess of tears and sobs. This weekend was very emotional for all of us and I still am carrying that… I hope in the days to come we turn our sadness into positivity and make our worlds great! We were chosen from so many applicants for a reason and we just have to be thankful and apply what we learned and not let it go to waste!!!! Make a change not for anyone but yourself! I love you guys and I wish I could go back to all the hugs!”
“Even though I have been doing sex work for the past 7 years, I’m facing more and more adversity as every day goes on it seems like. And while it is true that there is nothing like being bonded through the same experiences, the fact that the vast majority of you are not sex workers did not affect the safety net that I can allow myself to rest in. I just wanted to say thank you because never in my entire life has it been easier to talk about myself and know that I was being seen and heard and even sometimes loved. THANK YOU”
“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!”

See you at the Stripcoast retreat!
“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
“I have so much Love and gratitude for all of you! When Lux invited me to come be a part of this weekend and teach a class I was completely ecstatically thrilled! Of course I adore her, she’s one of my dearest friends, and I was elated at the idea of being at Stripcabin!
But I struggle deeply with imposter syndrome and fear of success/fear of failure and I found myself incredibly fearful of not being enough or saying enough or doing enough or teaching enough to make my presence worth it for all of you. I was excited to give you as much as I could and I hope that I did that. What I didn’t realize until I was in the midst of it was that I was going to have to do all the same things that you were going to have to do. I am used to giving that as much as I can to all of my students and the people around me, but I’m not used to receiving it in return. And not necessarily because people don’t try. I have a really hard time allowing myself to be nurtured from others and allowing myself to break down as needed as well. So thank you so much to all of you for accepting my love and my teachings but also making me feel safe to be vulnerable and to cry and to share with you as well. I love all of you so much! And I look forward to next time! Thank you!”
