LA burlesque dancer, Selene Luna was a member of 90s extravaganza The Velvet Hammer Burlesque and has since gone on to spread her magic across the world. She currently tours with Dita Von Teese and is seen here in one fierce photo.

Miss Indigo Blue has a burlesque love affair with New Orleans it seems. In 2001 she was in the audience at Tease-O-Rama and walked away as the next generation of burlesque dancing. We love this playful nymph pic of the wonderful Seattle burlesque dancer.

This boylesque dancing trio are hot as hell and have a well deserved place on our list. Their line-up sees reigning King of Burlesque 2013, Ray Gunn, ‘The Diamond Stud’ Jett Adore and the tasty cheesecake performer, Bazuka Joe.

We’ll give you a minute, wink. Then point you to our trashy little brother, Boylexe.

The most naked woman in the biz with the butt that won’t quit, Michelle L’amour looks stunning in this skyline shot. See her play Butthoven’s Fifth Symphony and no, that isn’t a typo.

It’s no secret that we adore this particular photoshoot which sees fellow Finnish lovelies, Cherry Dee (above) and Vera de Vil. The Itty-Bitty Tease Cabaret burlesque dancers seduced us from the off.

Texas headline honey, Coco Lectric always knows how to work those curves and Kaylin perfectly captured her sex appeal in this beautiful picture. All we can say is more please?

Fetish pinup and British burlesque dancer, Miss Miranda waves the flag for this side of the pond with her brand of tease. Simple, sexy and racy from top to toe.
