God bless Lili St. Cyr

"Sex is currency. What's the use of being beautiful if you can't profit from it?"

It is the centenary today of Willis Marie Van Schaack, better known as the legendary Miss Lili St. Cyr, Queen of the Burlesque, the "Anatomic Bomb", and (alongside Miss Gypsy Rose Lee), one of the most famed strippers in history.

The things she could do with a fan!

Lili St. Cyr (3rd June 1918 – 19th January 1999)


  1. Fabulous, sultry, and beautiful! I can tell from the first picture she's an expert on choking chickens. Luv the giant feather headdress! I may need to borrow that piece to dust the ceiling fans.

    1. I've always desired one of those headdresses myself! One day, one day...


      PS "Choking chickens" is an art.
