Candy Gram: Tatah DuJour

In our ongoing Q&A series --"The Candy Gram"-- we ask the same quirky questions of burlesque's various performers. If you want to be added to the mix, drop Tanya Cheex a line at t.cheex AT gmail DOT come. Today, say hello to Tatah DuJour, who will be competing for the title of Miss Exotic World at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas this weekend.

What is your hometown?
Key West, FL

How long have you been interested in burlesque/performing?
I've been interested in burlesque for well over 10 years - performing on and off for 9 - but seriously performing full time for the past 4 years.

How many pairs of pasties do you own?
Wow! I should totally know this because I just packed all of them into the Key West Burlesque mobile today for our summer tour. I would have to say there are about 15 pairs and maybe 2 or 3 strays.

What are your three favorite songs to perform to?
I love more Bumps and Grinds and Stardust. However, we just did this funny group number to Poison by Bel Biv Devo - it was a blast.

What three items could you not live without as a performer?
My amazing partner and co-producer Marky P. My bottle of Channel #5. Sally Hansen air brush legs... I use it on my entire body. I love that stuff!

Who had the biggest influence on your career?
That's a tough one. Eleanor Bucci, my agent from when I was a feature entertainer, had a tremendous influence on my career. She taught me a lot about classic burlesque and putting shows together while I was working for her. Now more then anything I am influenced by the members of my troupe. They are amazing and truly inspiring!

Who is your favorite burly queen?
There are so many amazing burlesque queens that it would be a shame to name just one. I do just love Sally Rand though.

What is your favorite item of clothing?
My D&G pink poodle coat. I've had it for years and I still just adore it and look forward to wearing it when I travel up north.

What’s the last movie you saw?
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I just watched for the 10,000th time the other night. It's my all time fave.

What’s on your must-see-TV list?
I don't have a TV anymore so I have to watch everything online. I'm kind of addicted to right now. As far as what I'm watching? Dollhouse, Family Guy, Flight of the Concords, and I'm dying to see more episodes of Big Love.

What book is on your nightstand?
The Art of Happiness by the Dali Lama and The Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics. I would love to be macro, but it is way too hard.

If you could go anywhere for vacation, where would you go?
Spain! I Love Spain!

If you could have any superpower, which one would you want? Why?
The power of unconditional love - it sounds so easy - yet is so hard to obtain. I think it would heal the world if there was any one able to possess that power.

Hi! I've stumbled upon your blog and am so glad I did. I've just created a blog dedicated to all things burlesque at and it's for my senior project, kind of like a thesis to graduate from college. Now, I've got a feature article in the pipeline on the burlesque scene in Philly that'll be posted to my blog once it's finished, and I'll be posting some other original things as well. So far, I've just been compiling any burlesque news I can get my hands on on my blog. Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and say that I like what you guys' blog does and would love it if you could head over to mine and give me some suggestions on how I can improve it. Again, this blog is going to be graded like a thesis and will determine whether or not I graduate from college so I want this to be as good as it can be.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
