JASMINE TAKES THE NEXT STEP

JASMINE TAKES THE NEXT STEP

40SOMETHING: So this is your first time doing skillful glamour modeling. Are you nervous?
JASMINE: A little, but not much. I’m savouring myself.
40SOMETHING: Where are you from?
JASMINE: Denver, Colorado. I grew up on the east coast. In Allentown, Pennsylvania.
40SOMETHING: And how did you end up at 40something?
JASMINE: Well, it is a little bit potty. For starters, I should say that I’ve done burlesque. I’m a writer, and about a year ago, I wanted to do an article on the art of burlesque cuz it fascinated me. I had a friend who was a male lap dancer, and that fellow suggested that I do burlesque because he thought I’d be truly nice 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 show, and it went so well, I wrote an article about how taking your sexy garments off can empower a female coz I am all about women’s empowerment and women 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 love?
JASMINE: I did a classic style of burlesque. I did a 1950s look. I am in love with that era, the 1940s and ’50s. The mink stoles, the gloves, the glamorous look, everything. It was very exciting.
40SOMETHING: Did you take all your hot clothing off?
JASMINE: I stripped down to pasties and no thing less than a belt. These were the rules. U had to keep a knicker on.
40SOMETHING: Did you savour it?
JASMINE: Oh, very much. I had some friends…well, I should tell u 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 teach geeks. I trained 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 a matter of joke thing is, I invited a pair of people who used to work with me in the industry to my unveil, and one of them was a gent friend, and this chab told me I looked love I’d been doing it all my life. He said, “You are a natural.” And that was my launch performance. It was very gripping and it was highly empowering. The day of my initial appearance spectacle in burlesque was one of the majority 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 vigour as a newly single lady. Finding out who I’m at my age and having been in marriage nice-looking much all of my adult life, it was very empowering. It gave me an opportunity to set myself free. Let my free spirit soar.
