Lexcursions – Pole Dancing
Lexcursions – Pole Dancing

Monday morning, and I was shaving my legs.
Not for aesthetics, nor for aerodynamics, but for grip.
Ex-lawyer, now pole dance instructor – and first runner-up at Miss Pole Dance Australia – Michelle Shimmy (not her lawyer-name) had suggested a pre-class leg-shave.
“And wear a singlet,” she said. “Just a wife-beater or something.”

Satire – What Makes a Man Bare All?
Satire – What Makes a Man Bare All?

Anthony’s 2004 Adelaide Fringe debut takes us on a journey that bares all. With musical support from Gary and Rob (and constant interruptions by Michael Hicks), the show features such unusual explorations as:
• why spotted ties send the wrong message
• the rejection letter poem
• the army, cocaine, grenades and me
• why thinking about work can actually increase arousal
• losing your virginity; beware the dark blue ring
• hard up at the puppetry of the penis auditions
• the brighter side of breaking your penis
• a long weekend sleeping out with the homeless
