Can you believe how tiny my belly button was?

Super huge hugs and thanks to Princess Farhana and her mom, Betsy Holland Gehman, for allowing me to reprint this story. It’s another witty chapter of Mama Gehman’s memoirs– a peek into the unglamorous side of showgirl life, 1949 New York. Enjoy. WELCOME TO NEW YORK You Won’t Be a Stranger For Long By Betsy [...]
I think the headline says it all. I’m flying down tomorrow afternoon to hang out with my wonderful San Diego friends and gear up for a FABULOUS show and pinup spokesmodel contest for Temptress Fashion! I’m performing and sitting on the judge’s panel for this one. Oh yeah! Come one, come all! “Face of Temptress” [...]
Check it out! OK, it’s not totally me, but I’m happy and flattered that Lar deSouza referenced one of my photos (recently featured on Java’s Bachelor Pad “Christmas Cutie” for December 9th last year) for his latest pinup piece. Yeah! Lar is the current artist for web comics Least I Could Do and Looking for [...]
December had me visiting my pals in San Diego, and I got to work with some of my favorite people again, jumping in on a few poses for the December session of “Star Wars Holiday Special”. Checkit: Mynx d’Meanor as Classic Leia Two Leias for the price of one! Cosplay cutie Trista as Slave Leia [...]
The Hustler Club part of my evening lasted only about 30-40 minutes total. But since many of you are probably curious about what went down, here’s my recap:
Dorothy Dale Kloss is amazing! 85 and still going strong! Watch the interview of the oldest “still performing showgirl”. And read about the Palm Springs Follies: They have enviably taut bodies, fitness levels that surpass most 20-year-olds and the unmistakable elan that comes only with vast experience. The 16 ladies and gents possessing those laudable [...]

Great article on the Las Vegas Weekly about the VLV Rockabilly Weekender last weekend: Viva las bailout: Rockabilly Weekend brings economic stimulus, real breasts, grease monkeys The economy may be contracting—and with it Vegas’ convention business and my shoe budget—but interest in all things rockabilly is somehow inexplicably expanding. Funny thing is, it costs a [...]
There’s a wonderful interview with Living Legend Satan’s Angel on American Ethnography that you should read! Satan’s Angel, known for her fiery tassel twirling, to me also epitomizes total rock n’ roll. Though sweet in nature, she’s also known for her blunt, take-no-shit sort of attitude. And if you’ve ever seen her perform, you know [...]
In the shit category (not giggles)… Amazon.com is removing sales rankings from gay, lesbian (and similarly themed) “adult content” books, thereby excluding their listings from popping up on some searches. Via Jezebel: According to author Mark R. Probst, Amazon.com has begun pulling the sales rank numbers from several gay and lesbian books, claiming that the [...]

In a fun, festive collaboration, Mynx d’Meanor models as Lakshmi with Sabrina Belly Dancer as Parvati and a very special appearance of Ganesh. (Directed by Jake Wilson.): Mynx as [...]
I’ve been waaaaay behind on my burlesque news reading, and of course, blogging here, but I just had to share these recent articles– if you hadn’t read them yet. I’m especially happy not only because the articles are fairly well-written and approach burlesque as a legitimate topic, but for me it’s still pretty rare (and therefore a breath of fresh air) to read pieces that don’t go for the sensationalistic and ever-so-wrong “burlesque is back!” angle… (Read on.)
