To burlesque or not to burlesque…

Burlesque

Originally uploaded by Oh Lenna

So … I’ve been semi-invited to a Burlesque and Blues night this week – and a Burlesque birthday party in July.

Now, of course, I like seeing scantily-clad ladies disrobing as much as the next heterosexual male – the weekend’s soaring temperatures in London proved that as much as anything. But I still can’t decide if it’s the sort of thing I can go to myself and come out feeling, well, good about myself.

It is a world away from seedy stripclubs with strippers who only see you as walking wallets, but I can’t help wondering if I’d come out still feeling slightly seedy and unsure of myself, if only because I hate paying for things.

The Guardian suggests that it has itself become somewhat of an industry that is itself rife for exploitation. But all the railing by feminists against the porn industry hasn’t stopped today’s yoof exposing themselves to anyone and everyone for a bit of fun.

Expression or exploitation?

Women Wanted … to fill in a survey

Women Wanted … to fill in a survey

A dear friend of mine is just finishing up her Masters’ degree, and she needs women to fill in a questionnaire on the fascinating topic of Menstrual Pain, Distress and Primary Care. So please be a darling, and help her out!

Female husky voice heaven

Female husky voice heaven

I’ve always been partial to a bit of female husky singing – so this morning, I half-woke up to the amazingly sexy and husky voice of Joss Stone singing Fell In Love With A Boy (White Stripes cover) – and doing a cover version in a way that cover versions should be done. Totally different to the original artist.

An incredibly sexy soulful voice that just cries out for more – although the depressing thing is that she’s only 16.

Now all I need is for Nemone to introduce her on Radio 1 and I can create my shrine to husky-voiced women everywhere who sound fantastically sexy but don’t necessarily look as gorgeous.
