STRIPTEASE ARTISTS OF THE 50'S
[Eroticism - Pin-Up - Retro]
Here are the ladies who pioneered and perfected the art of titillating performance in the 1950s, as captured by famous female photographer and pin-up girl Bunny Yeager. Celebrities shown include Dixie Evans, Blaze Starr, Bonnie Bell, Michelle "Toots" L'Amour, and Kitten DeVille, and Lana Loy. These women practiced the art of teasing with varying and increasing degrees of nudity, and were billed under many monikers, including stripper, exotic or erotic dancer, burlesque queen, and stripteuse. Though most strip clubs have abandoned the delayed gratification of "teasing" in recent decades, the art of striptease is undergoing revival. Yeager's images embody the mix of sultry and playful that characterized the art during the 1950s. Here famous subjects pose in the spotlight amidst smoky nightclubs, as well as at home or relaxing on the beach. If you love women, you'll love this journey back into the era of the 1950s.
