The Slippery Belle Burlesque and Chesterfield

This weekend, I slithered into my genuine 1950's wiggle dress and tottered over to the Slippery Belle Burlesque in Manchester for their 5th Birthday Party.

A brilliant night, with some wonderful acts.  I especially loved the performances of the beautiful Millie Dollar and my favourite, Abigail Collins - talented and fantastically funny.  I've been attending the Slippery Belle events since it started all those years ago, and looking forward to seeing many more.

I also popped over to Chesterfield Museum for a 1940's display of memorabilia and a vintage market - one of my favourite places for picking up gorgeous knick-knacks.  The market was held in The Winding Wheel, which had a lovely little ballroom (stop sniggering at the back!), whose staircase demanded a little picture be taken.

I decided to wear my 'Goodwood Revial' outfit (as I have named it now) due to the chilly but sunny weather, and must have looked a little over-dressed amongst the tracksuits and jeans of Chesterfield as I walked from the car to the event!  However, it did make me think of Vivienne Westwood's recent observation of the general populace that “Everyone looks the same and the clothes are ugly” - I still think style (not fashion - two very different things) does not have to be expensive - my 'Goodwood Revival' outfit cost the princely sum of £55, and the hat just £40.  A pair of jeans could cost much more than that.  Those shoe-fans out there may recognise, in one of those odd quirks, that I am actually wearing one of my pairs of Vivienne Westwood shoes, too, which ties it all up quite nicely... just as I do to some of those lovely gentlemen I meet.

A Quick Recap....

Well, as I am currently engaged in an email exchange with a very nice chap from Google regarding my poor old blog, I thought perhaps a quick recap might have to do for now.

Hmm, where were we...?  Oh yes, as a former porn model/lap dancer/professional dominatrix, I decided, nearly a year a go now, to try my hand (and other bits of my body) at one of the few areas of the sex/adult industry that I have not experienced - and thus, Dexi Delite, Independent Escort in Manchester, was born.
Dexi - Lovely Memories!

 Looking at some of those old magazines and newspaper cuttings (yes, it wasn't just porn-stuff that I did - although I am perhaps more ashamed of being on Trisha and in the Sunday People than my front cover of Fiesta, a two-page special in Penthouse or two-page spreads in the Sunday Sport!) certainly brought back good memories, and some (a poorly-paid psychologist, for instance, who had an issue with pornography and the sex-industry in general) might say it was a logical progression, in the same way that if you partake of cannabis, even once, then you are destined to be a heroin-junkie within 2 years.  However, my retort to that would be that I was always just following advice from my teachers, careers advisor and elders - do something you enjoy and are good at.  So, here I am.  The magazines and porn-films behind me (perhaps, but some of these things circulate endlessly!) and enjoying my year-old career at the slutting edge, sorry, cutting edge of the sex industry.  And I am loving it.

Ah, but maybe it's not all quite behind me.  In September, as some of my previous blog readers will recall, I went to the utterly fantastic Goodwood Revival - one of my favourite events of the whole year.  Fabulous cars, fabulous fashion, and fabulous people.  And, of course, in 2011 I won the 'Best-Dressed Lady' award... which meant a TV interview and pictures in the motoring press.

It was a truly astonishing memory, and one I will treasure for the rest of my life.  I still have the magnum of Veuve Clicquot that I won - I will get around to drinking it one day.

I have also had some excellent nights away at various fetish events around the country, including Torture Garden in Edinburgh...

and, at the invitation of the reknown erotic photographer Robert Babylon a lovely night at the Erotic Exhibition at The Gallery, in Liverpool.

I have also been wined and dined by lovely gentlemen in some of Manchester and London's top restaurants, treated to incredible trips to Amsterdam, London, Goodwood and Brighton.  Oh, and had many awesome orgasms at the hands, tongues and, well, you get the idea, of some lovely gentlemen in the last year.  So does that bring us up-to-date?

Not quite - as a recap it's pretty much all there, but I'm sure I'll remember other little bits too, but now for a proper update...

OOOOPS!

There appears to have been a bit of a tits-up somewhere with my blog - I have a sneaky feeling that my gorgeous new phone (actually, I hate the damn thing) is to blame - but more of that later.
Please feel free to amuse yourselves with, er, these, whist I try and resolve this - either by setting up a new blog completely (was it Coleridge who forgot and lost his ideas for an entire epic poem because an insurance man came knocking - I know how he feels!) or by retrieving the old one from Google.  Somehow I think Michael Barrymore's agent will have more success with getting his client to open up the Olympics than I have of getting my blog back.




Despite my internet set-backs, I will still be at Liverpool next week...
 
...as long as I have more luck finding my way down the M62 as I have had with finding my way around that new phone!
