Dita Von Teese has said that she finds stripping empowering and liberating.
“I have never been an exhibitionist and I didn”t get into this so I could flaunt myself,” the Mirror quoted Dita as saying.
“I set out to do burlesque because I love the history of showgirls and like the concept of creating my own show. I find it empowering and liberating when I”m performing – I am the director, stylist, choreographer, all of it – and I honestly don”t think too much about the nudity until people remind me of it.
“For me, it”s like an actress performing in a nude scene. The strip was a huge part of burlesque in America in the 1930s and 40s. But I am a stripper and I don”t mind being called that. I like the word and I understand the true history of burlesque, which is very similar to modern stripping. It is part of the evolution of striptease.
“I am generally confident about my body, although I have my moments when I”m not. But dressing in elaborate clothes and doing my hair and make-up in a different way enables me to express myself. I am never shy when I get up on stage and I”m under the spotlights. I am entirely in control,” she added.
