Commercial striptease venues in postwar Vancouver were diverse in location, clientele, and style.

Published by: University of Toronto Press. For more than a century in the West, commercial striptease has flagrantly exploited a demand for undressed female flesh. Today, the tradition of a woman doffing her clothing for an audience still has legs, as it were. In the bare-it-all world of peeler pubs and upscale gentlemen’s clubs, exotic dancers spread their wares fully nude on stage while marketing lap dances, massages, and table dances in Champagne and VIP rooms. Commercial striptease venues in postwar Vancouver were diverse in location, clientele, and style.

Provocative and challenging, Burlesque West combines the economic, the social, the sexual, and the personal, and is sure to intellectually tantalize. Burlesque West: Showgirls, Sex, and Sin in Postwar Vancouver.

After the Second World War, Vancouver emerged as a hotbed of striptease talent. In Burlesque West,the first critical history of this notorious striptease scene, Becki Ross delves into the erotic entertainment industry at the northern end of the dancers' west coast tour - the North-South route from Los Angeles to Vancouver that provided rotating work for dancers and variety for club clientele.

Drawing on extensive archival materials and fifty first-person accounts of former dancers, strip-club owners, booking agents, choreographers, and musicians, Ross reveals stories that are deeply flavoured with an era before "striptease fell from grace because the world stopped dreaming," in the words of ex-dancer Lindalee Tracey. Though jobs in this particular industry are often perceived as having little in common with other sorts of work, retired dancers' accounts resonate surprisingly with those of contemporary service workers, including perceptions of unionization and workplace benefits and hazards.
