I feel like it’s somewhat unoriginal to just come here and declare my unending adoration for Dita von Teese, but it’s kind of hard not to. The thing is that I can contextualize and explain my love for her in a way which is (possibly) worth extrapolating upon. It’s not just because she has milky white skin, raven hair, perfect bow lips and a bountiful chest… Wait, what was I saying? Oh, right.
As a porn performer (this is the closest title I can use to explain what I do, though “performer” isn’t ideal either) I am certainly more demure than most. For anyone who follows what I do, it has taken me quite a long time to “take it off” and “show some skin” as it were. Sure, part of that is a personal journey, but there was also a fair amount of intent behind it. Here’s a thing about me… I love the art of the tease. It’s the ultimate form of seduction. Even as I slide my boyfriend’s cock down my throat, I’m leaving a little something to the imagination. Whether that’s my body hiding behind some beautiful lingerie, my bare breasts being ever so slightly obscured or just the faint tease of my naked body off in the distance, faded by the shallow depth-of-field. It’s always something.
Dita exemplifies this kind of tease perfectly. Sure, it’s in the grand tradition of burlesque, but she really does take it to the next level. When I first saw Dita, I was immediately enthralled with her interpretation of female sexuality. I’ve always been feminine, but that special retro approach to femininity fits so well with my sweet, sensual and teasing approach to blowjobs. She’s been something of an inspiration to the way I’ve come to create The Art of Blowjob both from video to video and in my larger progression towards slowly taking it off and sharing more, so I’m fairly indebted. What better way to say thanks to an icon than by sharing a video of her explaining her own approach to teasing… In advertisement form, of course.
