It's still a bit odd to me, because I feel like I have created much more complex performance pieces than the two burlesque numbers I've done so far, but the positive feedback I've gotten on them has been close to overwhelming.
This may sound odd coming from me, having displayed my naked ass throughout various forms of media, but there have still been times when I've felt I have no business taking my clothes off on stage. But my audience and fellow performers truly make me feel that I'm beautiful the way I am and don't need to change a thing. They get me, and they like me, and it's a deeply wonderful feeling.
