Learning how to twirl nipple tassels is a funtastic part of being a burlesque dancer but you don’t have to be one to give it a try. We share the top tassel twirling videos on how and why nipple tassel spinning is a must-have sultry skill.

How to Twirl Nipple Tassels

Some burlesque performers prefer to simply show off their pasties and oh, are they fabulous pasties. Like Dita Von Teese told The Look, “I don’t twirl. I like to be the best at what I do and I’m not the best at tassel twirling, so I don’t do it at all.”

Personally, we recommend trying anything at least once. Even Spenny and Jamie from Made In Chelsea have given it a go. You can’t do much and there’s no limbering required. We’ve nabbed the best tassel twirling videos to show you how to nail this burlesque dancing technique.
