February Slut of the Month: Minx Arcana

I am: ruled by desire.

By Day: I earn my daily bread as a professional bibliophile.

By Night: I satisfy my lust for glamour as a burlesque performer and costume designer. As is true of many artists, I am hopelessly nocturnal and thrive in the dark hours.

My Vices: Red wine. Secrets. Obsessions with sex, death, and the abject.

My Virtues: Bleeding heart.

The Present: is where the magic happens.

The Future: is what we make it.

Favorite Flavor: Dark cherry & ocean brine.

Favorite Feeling: Saudade. Lust. The intoxicating energy rush of performing.

Favorite Fabric: Silk, leather & fur. In burlesque, texture is a potent weapon of seduction. We’re always thinking about different ways to engage and stimulate the senses. I get tingles just thinking about the smooth glide of silken cloth over skin, the plush sinking sensation of fur, and the pulse-raising scent of leather.

Substance is: alchemy of passion, guts & intellect.

Style is: “the gastronomy of the eye,” to appropriate a phrase from Honoré de Balzac. Style is also a personalized projection of one’s desires, moods, anxieties, attitudes and ideas about occupying aesthetic space. So much of it is imbued with cultural meaning; I think, because of this, it is fertile territory for experimentation and articulation of the self. On a more metaphysical level, I like to think of style as a form of daily worship expressed through and upon the temple of the body.

Slut is: claiming agency over one’s own sexual identity, energy, and power. Slut embodies the spirit of transgression, autonomy, experimentation, playfulness, unharnessed pleasure, shamelessness, choice, and yes, feminist desire. Slut is loving deeply the body that you live in and reveling fully in the ecstasies of being alive!
