SCOREClassics.com isn’t all about the superstar legends of the past. For every Alexis Love or LA Bust, there were many other girls who filled the pages of SCORE and V-mag.
Shanelle Staxx’s layouts always wound up being published in Autumn issues (September ’94, October ’95, October ’97 and September ’98). The petite exotic dancer was one of the first to have a website, and like most of the feature strippers who posed for SCORE, she had a mail-order fan club.
It’s a joke that nostalgia ain’t what it used to be, but we have to debate that point. A lot of the guys who were of age back then prefer the way it was compared to now. The girls of the 1980s and 1990s are so different from the girls of today, it’s like the present-day babes are from another world. Many of the models like Shanelle were dancers who traveled the world, got to know the club-goers and industry people in person, appeared on television talk shows and in newspapers and posed for professional studios. They didn’t live in a social media cocoon, glued to their phones. I wonder how many models today would feel comfortable on a week-long Boob Cruise with a hundred people, if it was ever revived.
Shanelle won so many stripper contests that “I can’t even remember them all,” she said. “Traveling. That’s the best part of being a performer. I get to travel around the world. Australia, Europe and the US. It’s hectic and I live out of suitcases, but it’s very exciting.”
Shanelle did very little video modeling, so the scene we just posted is extremely rare.
