JASMINE TAKES THE NEXT STEP

JASMINE TAKES THE NEXT STEP

40SOMETHING: So this is your first time doing able bare modeling. Are you nervous?
JASMINE: A little, but not much. I am enjoying myself.
40SOMETHING: Where are you from?
JASMINE: Denver, Colorado. I grew up on the east coast. In Allentown, Pennsylvania.
40SOMETHING: And how did u end up at 40 something?
JASMINE: Well, it’s a little bit batty. For starters, I should say that I have done burlesque. I’m a writer, and about a year agone, I wanted to do an article on the art of burlesque cuz it fascinated me. I had a friend who was a male gogo dancer, and that fellow suggested that I do burlesque ‘coz this chab thought I would be truly valuable at it. And so I checked out a local venue in Denver that was a cabaret where they had burlesque performances regularly and held a class, and I took the class, and the requirement for graduation was performing in front of a live audience. And it was a soldout display, and it went so well, I wrote an article about how taking your hot raiment off can empower a lady coz I am all about women’s empowerment and honeys being secure in their sexuality. And then they asked me to come back and perform some more, so I did seven or eight performances in Denver.
40SOMETHING: What were the performances like?
JASMINE: I did a classic style of burlesque. I did a 1950s look. I’m in like with that era, the 1940s and ’50s. The mink stoles, the gloves, the pretty look, everything. It was very gripping.
40SOMETHING: Did you take all your raiment off?
JASMINE: I nude down to pasties and no thing less than a panty. Those were the rules. U had to keep a knicker on.
40SOMETHING: Did u enjoy it?
JASMINE: Oh, very much. I had some friends…well, I should tell you that I’m a recovering geek. I came from the technology industry. I worked in the software business almost all of my adult life. I was in technical training. I used to educate geeks. I disciplined programmers, if u can believe that, and then I did consulting work. I did sales, I did marketing and I did global alliance managing, so I traveled around the world managing relationships. And the funny thing is, I invited a couple of people who used to work with me in the industry to my reveal, and one of them was a buck friend, and this chab said me I looked love I would been doing it all my life. This guy said, “You are a natural.” And that was my initial debut peculiar reveal. It was very thrilling and it was highly empowering. The day of my first appearance performance in burlesque was one of the most thrilling days of my life.
40SOMETHING: How come?
JASMINE: It was getting over a taboo. It was sort of a celebration of my divorce as well, so I was kind of coming into my force as a newly single lady. Finding out who I am at my age and having been in marriage pretty much all of my adult life, it was very empowering. It gave me an opportunity to set myself free. Let my free spirit soar.
