Welcome one and all to bbw_burlesque!

As the intro page states, this community is dedicated to the beautiful and wonderful Sunny Perkins, AKA Mia More who tragically passed away late last year.

Sunny was instrumental in me, leopardprints (the founder and the moderator of this community), becoming interested in Burlesque. Sunny was a beautiful woman inside and out, and took pride in who she was and the beauty she spread far and wide; size was never an issue for her when she'd get up on the stage and start shimmyin' & shakin'! She was a known celebrity in the world of burlesque, has been published in "Burlesque and the New Bump-n-Grind" (along with the rest of Ms. DeMeanor's Fat-Bottom Revue), and performed at the Miss Exotic World Pageant along with the rest of the Fat-Bottom Revue troupe pioneered by Reva Lucian. Our loss of Sunny will never be forgotten, and she will forever be missed.

Please, feel free to post about issues concerning discrimination and acceptance, costumes, ideas for numbers, show dates, music, URL's, pictures...the sky's the limit! All we ask is that no photos show complete nudity, are tasteful and that everything be related to burlesque, especially the Big Beautiful Women of burlesque.

We want this community to grow and blossom into something that Sunny herself would be proud to have been established in her name's sake, so let's make this community a great one!

And now on with the nitty-gritty...



THIS COMMUNITY IS A FRIEND'S ONLY COMMUNITY! PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE VENTURING FURTHER!"

Please post to this entry before or after requesting membership if you are not already an established member. We would like to know, in short, a little bit about you and who you are. Please introduce yourself, tell us a little about yourself, and if you're a burlesque dancer, share some stories (the more BBW related, the better), if you ain't a dancer and want to be one, express your interest and describe what moves you about the art, and if you're neither a dancer nor a prospective dancer and just enjoy the voyeuristic side of it, share some stories about shows you've seen--again, the more BBW related, the better :) We here at bbw_burlesque have hopes and ambitions in mind of creating a safe haven for our members to feel uninhibited, wherein they are not judged and feel happy to be here; this includes you, the potential future member, too!

To everyone who is already an established member of our community: Please go back to your entries and make them friends only as soon as you read this entry. This entry will be the only public entry in this community both for:

A.) The safety and integrity of our dancers, performers, future performers, and especially those posting pictures that would violate the rules of LJ and the laws regarding nudity and/or partial nudity on the Internet.

B.) To ensure that everyone in this community is not harassed, ridiculed, etc, and feels free to post as they choose (within the set boundaries of acceptable posts as defined in our charter).


POSTS THAT ARE ACCEPTABLE ARE AS FOLLOWS:

√ Campy & Kitschy Comments/Posts ¡¡¡THEY ABSOLUTELY MUST REMAIN KIND, TEASING IS NOT ALLOWED and will get you both automatically kicked out and banned from posting. Making light, jovial and humorous remarks are gladly accepted; after all, burlesque is about 50% vaudeville & 50% seduction!!!

That in turn leads to...

√ Seductive Comments/Posts ¡¡¡this is where you'll have to be very, very careful on your choice of words, but essentially ladies and gentlemen, don't comment/post anything in here that you wouldn't AT a burlesque show, and if you haven't been to one before, what flies is: whatever kind of metaphorical whistling, 'cat calling,' hooting, hollering, clapping or cheering you can summon up out of your keyboard in the form of articulated compliments. This doesn't mean they have to be all quasi-intellectual and shit, just given a lot more thought than, "Oh my, I really like your ass and tits and I can only imagine what I'd do with those legs around my neck," whereas, "Oh my, you've got the kinds of curves I'd fly miles to see again and again and again!" See the difference? The first is just, well, freakin' stupid. No woman, performer or not, cares to hear that kind of shite out of anybody's mouth they're not already IN bed with. Whereas complimenting a woman by saying, "Hot damn! Your thighs are like the Pillars of Hercules, and the way you put that extra jiggle in your bloomers sends shivers up and down my spine!" (then, in a show, is usually followed by a dollar or five in her garter belt) is a sophisticated way of boosting a woman's ego; simply stating, "Man I really like your curves *grins*, I live in Massachusetts, we should talk," may be a perfectly fine (but slightly lecherous) statement, it just has no bearing here because it has NOTHING to do with burlesque and ALL to do with some fellow's fantasizing!!!

If you have a brand new journal with no posts on it or one that has A LOT of sexual groups on it that primarily post nude pictures and few if any other communities listed, in all likelihood you will ALSO not be allowed into this community, unless you can give either of us a good reason that you'd like to be here. This is not a community that's going to supply you with wanking material WHATSOEVER! If that's your thing, there are plenty of other communities on LJ and abroad for that very purpose. We will NOT tolerate any of our members being treated as objects and not as women.

To stay in this community, your full date of birth, as noted in the rules on our front page, must be on your info page AT ALL TIMES. We will be doing a check of the members today to make sure of this, and random checks here and there. You cannot put your DOB up just to get in, then take it down, sorry ladies and gentlemen. And by DOB, this includes year of birth: that is actually the most important part of it. However, since some women and men born in 1987 may actually already be 18, some others are not quite 18 yet, so just having the year of birth is not acceptable, either: you've got to have the month and day, too. Sorry, we don't wanna be jerks, but these aren't just our rules, they're both LJ rules and federal rules regarding sites like ours. So please, do us the favor and re-add your birthdates if they've been taken down already, and keep them there as long as you want to be in this community.


ABSOLUTELY NO EBAY OR CLOTHING SALES POSTS WILL BE PERMITTED!!!!
If you persist in doing this, you will be banned and the post deleted!


Thank y'all for takin’ the time to read the rules of our community, and have a gay ol' time here at bbw_burlesque!!!
