Don’t you hate it when people pretend like “burlesque” is some sort of magical high art form completely divorced from the idea of taking one’s clothes off for money? As if some boobie tassels automatically make a lady morally superior to the more modern types of strippers who are out there? Famed burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese does, and she is going to tell it like it is (with her trademark grace, of course). More

I’m guessing the inspiration board for this image (after the jump) included Cher, Cher, Vegas, a Reno bordello, and Cher. More
Some of us have the art of seduction down… like me. When it comes to seducing my imaginary boyfriend, Fred, all I need is a fifth a whiskey and some aromatherapy candles and we’ve got ourselves a party. However, some of you need a li’l something to extra to turn your lover into a pile of bumbling love mush. So why not shake things up in the boudoir with something that sparkles, something that teases, something like… pasties. Originally created to censor the nipple in topless theatrical performances without totally covering the breast, pasties are sexy, fun and add a level of mystery. More

Readers, one can only hope that the Dirty Martini now writing for Hugh Hefner’s website, The Smoking Jacket, is none other than this Dirty Martini, burlesque star extraordinaire and person from whom I would take sex advice any day, especially over anyone calling themselves a sex advisor.

So the other day, I’m sitting in the movie theater with my popcorn bucket in my lap and my feet on the head of the person in front of me, ready to get my Burlesque on. “Take me away, Cher,” I mumbled as the lights went down.
Within one minute of the opening credits, Christina Aguilera, portraying a waitress in a dive bar in a small podunk town, delivered her first line, intended to sum up the entire plot of the movie: “I’m getting out of here, Rita.” More
A lot has been written about the campy genius that is the movie “Burlesque,” and I’ve ignored all of it if it doesn’t include glowing reviews about how Cher can do no wrong, Christina has the vocal prowess of a trained opera singer, and all movies should henceforth include musical interludes featuring women in fishnets and hot shorts.
