An Ode to Burlesque

Neo-burlesque is on the rise across the country. The art of dancing seductively and potentially removing ones clothes in front of strangers has previously held such a stigma, but now women are flocking to this revived art form. With a determination to put an emphasis on sexy over sexual, it is an expression of female empowerment. Lets take a step back in time to look at some of the women who have paved the road for the burlesque dancers of today. And who knows, maybe this will provide some inspiration to take home…

 

She brought burlesque to America from Britain in the late 1860’s with her troupe “The British Blondes”

 

Also known by her other stage name, Billie Beck, Sally was a burlesque dancer, vedette and actress – most noted for her ostrich feather fan dance

 

Dubbed the “Queen of Exotic Dancers”, she was one of the best known burlesque stars of the 1950s, 60s and 70s

 

She was an American burlesque entertainer and vedette famous for her striptease act

 

Dixie is most remembered for her burlesque parody of Marilyn Monroe

 

 

One of the most recognize acts in striptease in the 1940s and 50s

A Sexy Story Time

Just because we’re in the mood for a story that’s sexual in nature doesn’t mean we have to google ‘mommy porn’ or ‘books like Fifty Shades of Grey’.  There are plenty of titles, both classics and modern literature, that provide readers with a sensual experience with precise prose and character driven stories.  Below is a list of our current favorites.

Brief Interviews with Hideous Men by David Foster Wallace is chalk full of brilliant, multidimensional renderings of sexual feeling that it’s hard to choose just one scene.

The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner depicts life in the Lower East bohemian culture of Art, Music and sexuality.

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis.  Yes, this book is criticized for being violently misogynistic.  But keep in mind, its fiction.  Frequently protested and unreadable by many, its jarring, disturbing and sadistic storyline is worth a read if you can stomach it.

Hemptameron by Marguerite de Navarre  Short stories, told by women, about their experiences of love and sexuality in the 15th century. Surprisingly still pretty vivid.

Love Sonnets: XVII

BY PABLO NERUDA

I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as one loves certain obscure things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that doesn’t bloom but carries
the light of those flowers, hidden, within itself,
and thanks to your love the tight aroma that arose
from the earth lives dimly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.
