She has appeared in various music videos for bands like The Cramps, graced the covers of many books and magazines and was crowned Miss Exotic World in 2002.

Sofire Rosa at the Kissy Kat Club on Sunday
Sofire and Lady Voix in Kiss Me Deadly outfits
Sofire and Lady Voix in Kiss Me Deadly outfits

As we're partly based in Sheffield, we like to get out and about in the north of England, as well as sponsoring the Kitten Club in London. So keep an eye our for Sofire Rosa, a turkish dancer and burlesque star, and Lady Voix De Ville, a compere and our fabulous staff member at many shows and for Hepburn and Leigh.

Sofire is due to be performing at the Kissy Kat Club on Sunday in Portsmouth, run by the rather fabulous Willow Blue, who I keep expecting to do some sort of crockery based routine, but sadly this is not the case.

Its worth tracking Sofire down, because, as with the Kitten Club, she carries with her the odd free gift and a fair few discounts . . . plus of course she is an amazing dancer!

Burlesque and a Rant (respectively)
Okay, I'm back! :P

Two posts for you this time, since neither are very long.

The first is about burlesque, more specifically 'What the Butler Saw' in Cardiff and what I saw there.

"...There’s something very thrilling and refreshing, too, about seeing a girl get slowly more naked on stage not five feet away from you. Nakedness in the flesh..."


The second is a rant about so-called 'family values' and how evil you are if you aren't married *rolls eyes*
