BBC did a five minute interview with the wonderful Dita von Teese, which unfortunately can’t be embedded, but I hope you’ll check it out, because her charm radiates perfectly, and she narrowly avoids the last (less than classy) question.
It’s no secret that I love Dita. I certainly have a quite a crush on her… I mean, look at her. I’m a big fan of beautiful dark-haired pale ladies. But it’s so much more than that. Her burlesque-inspired look has really made me put emphasis on picking out a unique look. Not to say that I’m doing the pinup look quite as much as she is, but it makes me focus on every detail I use to showcase my style. She celebrates the sexiness of her femininity in a way that I find so powerful and seductive without trying too hard. Class and simplicity can be sexy.
Asides from the look, she also has helped me develop my feelings towards the art of the tease in general, which I wrote about on Fleshbot:
As a porn performer (this is the closest title I can use to explain what I do, though “performer” isn’t ideal either) I am certainly more demure than most. For anyone who follows what I do, it has taken me quite a long time to “take it off” and “show some skin” as it were. Sure, part of that is a personal journey, but there was also a fair amount of intent behind it. Here’s a thing about me… I love the art of the tease. It’s the ultimate form of seduction.
You can read the rest of that post and see a beautiful video with her on Fleshbot for Camille Crimson week!
If you had five minutes with Dita, what would you ask her? Or do? ;)
