In my fabulous job seeking out the most talented love experts and sex gurus out there, I get to think pretty creatively. In order to do that, my desk is covered with books, magazines, articles, newspapers and I am surrounded by fabulous imagery from hot and sexy vision boards to my own weekend attempts at painting nudes. But every once in a while, my husband and I have to escape the startup office that is our home and head out for a hot date. This is what brings us to fabulous evenings like ones with The Lalas Burlesque.
The founder of The Lalas Burlesque, Erin Lamont is a friend of mine and has played a pivotal role in my own evolution to sex and intimacy goddess. Back in 2009 I was developing reality TV series and found myself in the world of The Lalas. Much to the chagrin of the network exec, this stunning dance troupe was a sisterhood of power and kindness. Competitive? Yes – it’s a harsh industry. But at the core, The Lalas Burlesque are about empowering women to find her inner Lala, achieve their own power, and definitely get silly and flirty. So I am thrilled to kick off the New Year with our first episode of 2016 and a guest blog by none other than Mamma Lala herself.
And yes, there’s me in my very own Lalas costume from a few years ago. This year’s resolution? Wear it much more often.
5 Steps to At Home Burlesque by Erin Lamont, The Lalas Burlesque
Step 1 – Find a piece of clothing that inspires you – a trench coat, your husband’s work shirt, an apron. It can be anything! Rhinestones optional, but always welcome.
Step 2 – Pick your favorite sexy song. We at The Lalas use classic rock, and our favorites are: Any and all things AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Eagles. But it can be ANYTHING – just something that you can move to. Current, old school, vintage, you name it. If it has a beat, and you have a booty, then you can move!
Step 3 – Make a date with your mate. You don’t need to tell your lover you plan to perform burlesque, but do plan a special at home date – even if it’s just after putting the kids to bed for fifteen minutes. Just make sure your “entrance” is on point! It’s all about that WOW factor – holy – is she – are you – really wearing that? And yes, please!
Step 4 – Watch the Lalas videos for inspiration and come up with your signature move. As our host TK say, if you are a sexually active adult, you have a signature move. www.youtube.com/thelalas
Step 5 – Perform – Yes, we all get shy, but here’s how you get over stage fright: Alcohol. If there isn’t any alcohol available, good luck.
