To Twirl a Titty Tassel July 22, 2013

As a person in theatre you end up learning some interesting special skills. I can do splits in a doorway, juggle scarves (badly), and I know how to twirl titty tassels. I was in a farce where I played a hooker/stripper. I got to chase my husband around the stage while wearing four-inch heels carrying a whip and spinning my tassels at him. I can even do the whole opposite direction thing. I don’t know how, it just came naturally to me. The tassels were attached to a bra and not pasties. I wanted pasties, but apparently that was “too risqué.” Performing in pasties is still on my bucket list though. Dream big, right?

Well, the tassels were attached to the bra with giant snaps so they could be removed for laundry purposes. No one wants to wear the same sweaty bra for five weeks without washing it. One day I was out doing a meet and greet with the audience after the show, and an elderly gentleman walked timidly up to me and handed me one of my tassels. I had to check my boobs to make sure it was mine. I didn’t know I had lost one .Apparently I had spun those bad boys so hard a tassel flew into the audience, and he caught it. Baseball games have nothing on me. Foul ball my eye! What would you rather catch: a dirty baseball or a bright pink titty tassel?

  1. I hear they pay big for that skill in burlesque. Just sayin’.

  2. My I suggest Pop Tart iceing for a paste? When it cools, nothing will make the tassel let go!

    You are lucky you got it back! Most people would consider something that landed in their lap (or worse) as a prize they can take home – like a baseball at a game. If he’d quietly slipped the tassel into his pocket, you would never have known – and would wonder for weeks what had happened to it.

    OTOH, some men truly are gentlemen.
