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.

I am so pleased with this new article that came out on Playboy.com about my class, Pussy Confidence! I developed this class a few years ago when it struck me that the burlesque I was seeing was not embracing sexuality. It made fun of it (which is technically burlesque) instead of owning it. It became clear to me that the performers I saw, mainly women, were not comfortable owning their power. To fully own your power, you need to fully embrace your vulnerability. Think of any super hero. It is always their vulnerability that gives them strength. They struggle with being different but it’s that moment where they accept their differences that the real story begins. I feel that it is the same for us, as performers, as women, as people.
I think this class is not only necessary for burlesque artists, but also for women in general. I will be bringing this class to the foreground and embracing my role as ‘Pussy Guru’!
