Famous for performing burlesque shows around the globe, you could say Dita Von Teese knows a thing or two about being sexy. We sat down with the former Mrs. Marilyn Manson and Playboy model to discuss the best things in life: love, sex and cocktails.
"I usually don't think about spicing up my sex life as much as I think about always maintaining it," Dita explains to us, while offering her recipe for setting the mood. "I've actually become really great at mixing my own cocktails. I put Cointreau over ice and top it with sparkling water, a squeeze of lime, and then I put out different garnishes—everything from basil and strawberries, kiwi, fruit."
Okay, Dita, let's get seductive:
Tip #1: Create Poetic Space By Wearing Something Sexy
"I'm a big advocate for wearing beautiful lingerie, not just for seduction, but in everyday life. I think that it's an individual thing ... you might want to try something unique and special."
Tip #2: Perform A Striptease
"I can't help but [include] the striptease at home. That's something I can talk about for hours on how to exactly do that, but I think the basis is having fun with the idea and letting your real personality come through in your striptease—and finding the right clothes. You can practice at home by yourself before you perform it for someone. I always like to prepare my victim a cocktail before I perform a striptease for them, too."
Tip #3: Share A Secret
"I think that spicing things up really has a lot to do with vulnerability and telling someone a secret or something that you might like to try that's unusual. A lot of it has to do with trust, which I think is a really exciting dynamic in sex." KEEP READING YOURTANGO'S INTERVIEW WITH DITA VON TEESE!
