VIDEO: Bronwen Parker-Rhodes’ Portrait of a Pole Dancer, Dear Delicious

Stripper

The letter written by a customer to a stripper named Delicious is quite the odd but intriguing ode to women’s affecting beauty. The letter is presumably read by Delicious herself as she spins around a pole in slow motion. The content of the letter initially sounds like it was written by a voyeuristic creep, “Sorry I was staring at you, I was ashamed the whole time I was doing it, well, the first three hours at least.” But it is soon revealed to have much more depth as the mysterious patron starts expounding on the relationship and juxtaposition between men and women, and how men are so enthralled by women’s potent but transient beauty and appeal.
