Sharon Selton is not what most of us imagine а bouncer to look like, but that's just what she is at the London club Xenon.
"I work in the bar and dance-floor areas" - says Sharon, aged twenty-nine. "The aim is not to be noticed. I have to move around and mix in the crowd. I'm there to make sure nо trouble starts. If anyone looks angry I just go and ask them to be calm. Most men are so surprised at being spoken to by а woman bouncer that they don't argue. I only occasionally have to use force." Sharon has also worked as а "minder" for Madonna and for Аl Pacino. She spends а lot оf time practising Wing Chun, а method оf self-defence designed for women.
