Burlesque

As a burlesque performer I enjoy mixing humour with sensuality. My performances take inspiration from artful languid striptease, vaudeville shtick, 1960s go-go dancing, and 1980s bouncy pop.

My adventures in burlesque began in 2003 as an off shoot from my adult entertainment performances.

I had the desire to use burlesque as a form of expression just as I did with my more explicit work. I didn’t want to pick one over the other and despite what many people told me at the time I knew could do both and I have!

After more than 10 years in front of the camera I now no longer perform in the xxx milieu. I have entered a new chapter in my professional life and my focus is on my burlesque productions along with my activism and creating sex education resources for adults.
