A Guy Thing

In a culture where female nudity is revered as art and male nudity is a punch line, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that dudes can be super sexy, too. Still, women snag up almost all of the opportunities to wear very little in public. Up until this weekend, Scandalesque, a circus-themed burlesque show that celebrates sexuality, comedy and unconventional arts, mainly has focused on the ladies. But on Saturday, May 26, the girls will take a load off and let the boys do the work in Mandalesque. The dudes will perform comedy, music, dance numbers, and aerial acrobatics -- all in itty-bitty leather-bound outfits. Yowza.
