Posted onSeptember 2, 2013|Comments Off on Chicago Man Shatters Windshield With His Bare Ass
A Chicago motorist said the man who used his buttocks to shatter his windshield “was literally running in circles naked as the day he was born,” Carideo said. “Then he looks at my car and goes into a full-out sprint and jumps, landing ass first on the right side of my windshield and shatters it.”
The naked man was later to be found dancing in the middle of an intersection before drinking the water from a puddle in the street. Police had to use a stun gun on the man at least once to subdue him, and suspect he was under the influence of a hallucinogenic substance at the time of his arrest.
Maybe he was practicing his “Capt. Kirk flying-butt-kick”?
Posted onAugust 5, 2013|Comments Off on Dita Von Teese on Burlesque VS Stripping
Back in the summer of 2012, Dita Von Teese was asked what was her take on the difference between stripping versus burlesque and this is what she said:
“I get asked a lot to explain that burlesque is different from stripping. But the term “burlesque” as we know it today comes from a type of risqué variety show in America that one would go to see in the 1930s and ’40s. Performing striptease—”stripping”— is the word to describe what the burlesque performers did onstage.”
“Nowadays we use the word “burlesque” to describe this retro-styled striptease that is seeing a big revival. Without the strip, it’s not burlesque, that’s for certain, and the greatest burlesque star that ever lived, Gypsy Rose Lee, called herself a stripper. You aren’t going to hear me tell you that there is a difference between burlesque and stripping. I think it’s awfully pretentious to go on and on about how burlesque isn’t really stripping. Burlesque-style striptease is where the modern pole-dancing-type strip originated from. Essentially, we’re all related.”
“Initially, I worked in strip clubs, as did most of us that were at the forefront of the burlesque revival in the early 1990s, and I’m not ashamed to say it. I respect strippers of all forms. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t wandered into a strip club and wanted to know more about striptease history. I’ve always been able to admire what makes a dancer an individual, whether it’s really raunchy or tame.”
“In my opinion, elegance has nothing to do with “how much” is shown and far more to do with the way one presents herself. I’ve seen beautiful, highly erotic, nearly pornographic shows that are more elegant than some burlesque acts. You can’t equate the degree of nudity or suggestion, it’s all about the overall way it’s done.”

Posted onJuly 23, 2013|Comments Off on Thought-provoking gender-swapped version of “Blurred Lines” music video
There’s been a lot of controversy over the misogynistic video of “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. It has been blasted by critics as being disparaging to women.
Luckily for us, an awesome parody has been created by Mod Carousel, a Seattle-based Boylesque troup, and features new tweaked lyrics, new male models and new props.
Mod Carousel addresses some of its own concerns with the original “Blurred Lines” video:
“It’s our opinion that most attempts to show female objectification in the media by swapping the genders serve more to ridicule the male body than to highlight the extent to which women get objectified and does everyone a disservice,” the group explains. “We made this video specifically to show a spectrum of sexuality as well as present both women and men in a positive light, one where objectifying men is more than alright and where women can be strong and sexy without negative repercussions.”
Here is the original unrated version of “Blurred Lines”, for comparison:
