Striptease

Author: DanceWeb

A striptease or exotic dance is a form of erotic entertainment, usually a dance, in which the performer, known as a \'stripper\', gradually undresses to music. Stripteases are now performed mostly in strip clubs, though theatres and music halls have also been used as venues.

The \"teasing\" part involves the slowness of undressing, while the audience is eager to see more nudity. Delay tactics include additional clothes being removed or putting clothes or hands in front of just undressed body parts.

Emphasis is on the act of undressing along with sexually suggestive movement, not on the state of being undressed: in some cases the performance is finished as soon as the undressing is finished.
