Tease makes the world go round.BurlesqueQuotable ramblings
Everyone needs a little tease to feel alive, what’s wonderful is that everyone also needs to be teased to feel alive. Watching burlesque shows has shown me that the reveal of a shoulder or the stroke of a gloved forearm is just as sexy as a shimmying pair of breasts. Burlesque has redefined what tease means to me. Tease is a life energy that is championed by it’s playfulness and desire to connect with other people. Sexually, or not.
Burlesque is an opportunity for me to feel ok with being expressive, salacious and owning a sexiness that I once believed needed to be tamed, for a variety of reasons. Being a tease has been associated with many negative outcomes, but burlesque has allowed me to pull my tease out and dust off her cobwebs. I’m also now more receptive and playful with the tease in others.
