When I entered the ballroom where Hayley Jane was holding her seminar it had the respectful quiet one might expect during the solemn moments of a religious ceremony. She held the audience in rapt attention as she explained her philosophies and concepts related to the art and science of the strip-tease. During most events I shoot the click of my camera usually fades into the background but I actually had a few admonishing looks from the audience who were focussed on her words.
Hayley spoke of the universality of the sexiness of women and how the art of strip-tease can help any woman of any age overcome the problems of body image that we all have whether it be a consciousness of obesity that leads to eating disorders or, as in her case, feelings of inadequacy stemming from her legs being too short or her ankles being “weird.” Through performing her art, the feelings of inadequacy and problems with body image have diminished, giving her power, presence, and poise. She believes that all women can similarly gain confidence, better body image, and even better orgasms through her art whether it is a public performance or privately with their lover.
She gave instruction to the audience on the importance of timing and tension in creating the suspense in strip-tease giving an example of the removing of the formal, long glove. It can be removed by pulling it slowly off with the teeth both creating tension in the cloth as it is removed, and in the observer as the creamy, sexy flesh of her wrist is slowly revealed and she keeps a smolderingly seductive eye-contact with her observer. Alternatively, she demonstrated the removal of the glove via stepping on the finger-tips with the shoe and so displaying herself in a more casual manor, offering the spectator an unobserved moment to view her other lovely features while the glove slides down and off her fingertips and she slowly becomes fully erect.
She also demonstrated the wrong and right way to walk though, while posture and poise is important, from her definition it really isn’t so much as how to walk as the attitude one conveys. She said to many women convey apathy in their walk because they just don’t care.
During the seminar her mother called and she put her on speaker phone and told her she was addressing Hayley Jane’s seminar on the Art of Strip Tease. If there were any doubt on her mother’s feeling about her daughter’s art, it was dispelled when Hayley Jane invited her to say hello to the nerds in the seminer. Her mom shouted, “Hello Nerds!”
Hayley Jane indicated that she has students of all (adult) ages attend her seminars but they tend to be more concentrated in their middle and later years as most young women have yet realize that the selfconsciousness of their youth and the desire to conform limit them from fully realizing potential creative beauty and sensuality that is Woman.
