Sexual Outlaws

A woman’s sexuality has always been a force of turmoil… for men.  From 1920 bathing suits that covered you from neck to ankle to 2014 decisions on contraception, men have always felt the need to control our bodies. Our wombs are warriors for wondrous life, our minds are powered by emotion and empathy, and our physical displays can turn men to warriors or make them weep. We always have the power. We are in control of our sexuality, and often their sexual desire. One of the best demonstrations of women honing their strength as sexual beings is with burlesque.  Here are some burlesque queens from New Orleans who make us proud.
