Really, do I need to say more than that?
The truth is I do hold you beneath my heel, just as you proclaimed, and I’ll never let you out from under it.
I’m sure you’ve been stalking my website just waiting for an update. You had to of noticed my new banner, I made it especially with you in mind. I knew it would drive you insane. Which it did, as well as bringing you even deeper under my spell. You’re hopeless, but you knew that already, didn’t you.
It’s even inspired me to make a new clip which will rightfully bring you mad with need & lust, as you’ll want it desperately. I wonder, whats it like to always have the things you want just out of reach? I wouldn’t know, I’ve never been denied anything I desired. I’m sure you’ll keep coming back daily looking for the clip, you’re on the edge of your seat now in anticipation. You can’t deny it.
I’m really fascinated with the burlesque culture of 19th century America. Its origins were that of the upper and lower classes being entertained by comedies which mocked the culture of the upper class. It evolved into something more sexual over time, with scantily clad women being used to keep audiences entertained and coming back for more.
One of the most successful burlesque troupes of all was written, produced and managed by a woman, Lydia Thomson. Imagine in the Victoria Era when women were being told to keep their bodies covered, where modesty was the golden standard, to have a woman directing other women on stage showing off their bodies. It was really a challenge of societies standards.
While burlesque is often assumed to be strip shows that’s not how it began. These women were more independent than those who accepted the social norms around them, they dared to do as they wanted. That to me is much more important, and inspirational than someone conforming to what others expect of them.
Towards the end of the burlesque era it had evolved much more into a striptease. I find the women did the best they could within their lives to be who they wanted, so while men may have ogled them as a sex object, they were making money the best way they knew how. Maybe they are the financial dominants of another time.
This is Sherry Britton, she was quite popular in the 1930’s. Look at her figure, its absolutely perfect.
Apparently there is a revival of burlesque. I’m curious if it resembles more the origins or the decline of the original shows. Has anyone been to a modern day burlesque show?
