I am very excited to be a part of this new docu-series called, SEX LIFE, on the Epix Network. The show chronicles the sex lives of all types of people and also features sexual performance artists. That’s where I come in! They featured my show, Le Nu, where I go beyond burlesque and really push the boundaries of what you might see in a typical burlesque show. You can catch the show when you sign up for a free 7 day trial. Watch my episode and all the rest in the series. The production team really did a great job of treating the subject matter with respect and artistry. Get your 7 day trial here!
I had an idea to do a tribute to Hedy Lamarr’s famous orgasm scene in the film Ecstasy. I wanted to experience real pleasure but just show my face in a soft focus glamour look in black and white. After the video was already filmed, I discovered Andy Warhol’s film ‘Blow Job’. It’s just a man’s face while he is experiencing pleasure. There is no sound and it is intense. I decided to combine these two inspirations in to what you see here.
Now, it is one thing to have an idea, and another to complete it, and another to present it. You know how it is when you hear your own voice in a recording? This is kind of like that, but more so. I assure you that these reactions are real and I am not faking it.
I hesitated about posting this because it’s very personal but I think the greater good it can do is important. A woman’s pleasure is important. We know this but it seems that the world is doing all they can to keep us in our place. They censor us, take away our autonomy and silence our voices. I will not stand for it and I encourage all women to stand up and fight. We have been shamed for centuries and in order to combat the forces against us, we must first attack the internal damage that has been done. The battle starts within. This is a video to remind you to take pleasure in your power.

Every year at this time, I turn my focus to beauty. As you know, I believe that beauty is truth and we need more truth in this world! The world is crazy and can seem overwhelmingly negative. It is in this time that we should turn to beauty to inspire us. I want to encourage you to post something everyday that you find beautiful. It can be a painting, a sculpture, a piece of music, dance, video, anything! Use the hashtag #52daysofbeauty and #floodtheinternetwithbeauty and #churchofbeauty. I want to see what you find beautiful! Let’s use our voices to create positivity rather than trying to destroy the negative. Those things may have the same outcome but they are very different approaches. I hope that you will join me in the beauty crusade!
