The public’s mind wanders rightly into the gutter.
This is art. Art is a good thing.
It’s the medium in which the artist reflects the viewer back at themselves. When you see this girl on stage taking off her clothes, what does that inspire in you? Do you look at that body and the context in which it’s presented? Do you think of it as beautiful, humorous and zany, or does it inspire deviance, guilt, shame or desire?
Who cares? This is burlesque, baby, this is a good time!!
