What’s YOUR safeword?

Bondage and safewords

Bondage-Gear

Ready to go beyond vanilla sex? Wave that freak flag high, my friends. But before we welcome you to the dark side – keep in mind that there’s far more to learning the ropes of BDSM than mastering a clove hitch knot. Setting up a safe and successful bondage scene requires planning, communication, patience, and above all, a good safeword.

Simply put, a safeword declares your limits. And, because D/S relationships are based on trust, that safeword should be prearranged, distinct and absolutely sacred.

According to the BDSM dating app Whiplr, the top 3 most popular safewords are “Pineapple, banana, and orange” but you can always choose whatever phrase or word you find meaningful for yourself.

Here’s a few safeword guidelines:

1. Dear Subs, we understand making a decision can be hard. That said, we ask that you just keep your safeword SIMPLE. If you can’t say it clearly with a ball gag in your mouth- don’t say it at all. Besides, it’s a bondage scene (not your blog) and nobody wants to listen to you try to grunt out a Shakespearean couplet while breathing heavily.

2. Dear Masters, let’s say your sub utters a ridiculous safeword like “Nickelback.” Let’s say you’re enjoying the scene and not quite ready to yield control. Listen carefully because we’re about to drop some knowledge:

Nickelback is a terrible band and CONSENT IS NON-NEGOTIABLE. Once the safeword is uttered the game stops and you’ll need to silence your lambs at a later date.

3. Better to keep one trusted safeword instead of changing one with every scene. In the heat of the moment accidents can happen and you don’t want to confuse yourself or your Dom. As Brad Hamilton says in Fast Times, “Learn it. Know it. Live it.”

4.  Because hoods and gags can make speech difficult, you can also agree on a non-verbal cue – like holding up a certain number of fingers. Some players will hold an object (like a bell or handkerchief) and drop it as a signal.

Once your safeword is selected you’ll be far better prepared to relax and enjoy your session.

Set the stage with Clubwear!

austin-clubwearPaging Austin Entertainers: If you strut your stuff at Gentlemen’s Clubs like Expose, Palazio, Perfect 10 or the Yellow Rose then you already know that it’s not just how you look after you strip down- but HOW you strip that captivates the customers.

Every dancer has that one “lucky” outfit that makes them feel beautiful and bankable – but luck really has nothing to do with it. Presentation and the right clubwear is crucial for setting the scene and creating the ultimate fantasy.

Carefully choosing the right exotic dance wardrobe that accents your unique body type and personality can help you stand out at your club and even determine your future income potential and success as an exotic dancer!

What type of impression do you want to make? Seduction comes in many forms, so let’s take a look at a few different dancewear styles that will help you define your onstage persona:

1. Lingerie

lingerie for dancers

 

More than meets the eye! Do you like to keep your look classy, romantic and feminine? Or, do you simply prefer retro glamour to showy lycra clubwear? You can’t go wrong with lingerie! Think lace, ribbons, frills, sheer stockings and garters to create an elegantly different and timeless kind of sex appeal. Tabu Lingerie is a great source for popular lingerie lines like Cosabella, Mapale, Escante, Coquette, Shirley and more.

2. Club Dresses

club dresses

Dress to impress: Regardless of personal style, every exotic dancer should own an assortment of flattering dresses to stand out in a sea of beautiful women! Club dresses can range from flirty to formal, long to short, but they are always alluring and skin tight. The best club dresses always leave something to the imagination and will keep your customers wondering what’s underneath. At Tabu Lingerie, we feature a unique variety of sophisticated dresses that will have you owning the VIP room.

3. Mix-&-Match Dancewear Separates

dancewear

Skin to win! The most basic and inexpensive category in the dancewear genre, a thong, booty shorts and a halter or triangle top is every dancer’s “starter pack.” That said, not all dance separates are made the same! That cheap dancewear deal might seem like a great investment at the time, but a faded or stretched-out outfit can quickly distract from your overall look. When it comes to clubwear, we trust brands like Body Zone and Mapale for quality fabrics and a great fit.
