Women like Aurora Sky are leered at, fantasized about, marginalized and shunned. They can be used up, exploited and spit out. But they can also be grossly misunderstood. At age 27, Aurora - the mother of two young boys - has been earning money as an exotic dancer with Superb Entertainment Agency for 10 years. Superb sends dancers like Aurora to perform at dozens of bars around Winnipeg and the rest of the province. Gisela Wuensch, 79, was one of those dancers, as was Robin Skolnik. Rick Irving and Mitch Fillion manage Superb Entertainment, and effectively all exotic dancing in Winnipeg. Photos by Melissa Tait / Winnipeg Free Press
