That book was going to surface or somebody had that book which would have been trouble so of course as these men rose in prominence in the Dallas community and gained financial and political power they wanted to get Candy s happy ass out of circulation said Ash They were becoming federal judges and people like that and they couldn t have their names known Developers builders city planners tc Candy Barr wasn t putting a bite on them They were scared A minister would be Ridden Out Of Town out of town a rail if he messed around No one Schwarz writes dared get caught in Candy Barr s address bookThe actual book was
APPARENTLY JUST A LIST OF FIRST 
just a list of first and phone numbers that Candy used to book private dance appearances at parties But the THREAT #Of The Book Meant That Juanita Was #the book meant that Juanita was by the police busted for vagrancy and other charges and ventually sent to jail for possession of an ounce of marijuana serving three years of a 12 year sentenceFrom this biography I got the impression that Candy was someone who took her clothes off onstage not because she was an xhibitionist or because she was forced into it but because maybe it gave her a little bit of a feeling of control over her body in other words by being a stripper she actually was NOT being xploited any longer After all she d been through what she was doing onstage was truly to use two overused phrases The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis empowering and her reclaiming her sexuality Because up to her age of consent she was anything BUTmpowered and veryone BUT her claimed and took and used her body sexually To Candy Barr stripping and dancing onstage was LIBERATION her way of taking back her body and taking control of her body and her sexuality in ways she couldn t when she was caught in the capture all those years before and I suspect in ways that people who toss around all those bullshit phrases about porn mpowerment demeaning xploitation rape culture taking back your body tc could never REALLY understandJuanita Slusher was a prostitute she said later Juanita Dabbs her first married name was a prostitute Juanita Phillips her second married name was a prostitute All those Juanitas probably turned 4000 tricks a year But Candy Barr was a dancer an Just Cause entertainer a star Candy Barr was the veryssence of myselfFascinating gripping reading and it s giving me a lot of great ideas for my novel and my characters.
