A striptease, striptease or striptease (from the English strip —to undress— and tease —to tempt—, sensual dance) is a show, generally a dance, in which the performing person sensually removes her clothes before the spectators. It is generally performed in table dances, cabarets or nightclubs such as Club Rosellón 315.
The striptease usually implies slowness when undressing, to cause the witness to greater excitement. With this objective, the stripper accustoms or plays with keeping the clothes that are being removed, or the hands, in front of parts of the body that are becoming naked, etc. The emphasis is on the act of undressing along with suggestive sensual movements, not on the fact of being naked. It is customary to end the performance when the performer finishes taking off her clothes, although it is quite frequent that the nude is not complete.
Physical attractiveness and costumes are the main elements used by erotic dancers, although music and lights are often also important. Frequently, currently (2010s) bars are used and, sometimes, chairs (already used in the past) and other elements.
The striptease can be the act prior to sexual practice and makes both components, the one who watches and the one who practices it, get very excited, making it easier for what comes after it to be more successful.
