Will you learn enough from watching these burlesque numbers to guess correctly? The closer you look, the better you'll play the game. Unless you get distracted. Which you probably will. Jo Boobs, special guests Randi Rascal, Shanghai Pearl, Heidi Von Haught | photo by ELD Images
It's a concept that only Jonny Porkpie (New York's "Best Naked Impresario" -NY Press, and producer of the "Best Burlesque" in NY -New York Magazine, The Village Voice) could be crazy enough to put on a stage. And now, it's making its way around the world...
The Rules Are SimpleFirst, your charming host introduces you to the celebrity guest performers in the best possible way: by bringing them to the stage to present titillating burlesque numbers. You'll have to watch carefully as these sexy superstars take off their clothes -- even more carefully than usual. Because everyone in the audience is a potential contestant, and you might just see something in the striptease that will help you guess the answer to an intimate question about the perversions and proclivities of the performer you just saw.

What can you win? Past prizes have included: a slightly broken smurf! That book from college the host bought for far too much money but never even opened! A VHS copy of Disney's "The Black Cauldron"! And many others far valueless for words!
After the "winners" have been selected, it's on to the semi-finals: a series of contests designed to test your skill and peversion. Whether it's "Safeword", "Reverse Cowgirl", "The Reacharound", or one of the many other challeges, make sure to be a big winner... because otherwise you're sure to be a sore loser.
Even the performers want in on the action. Randi Rascal, Jo Boobs, and Shanghai Pearl show the audience how it's done. Photos by Evan Draeger
It's a game where the stakes are low and the standards are too. Do you have what it takes to... GRAB MY JUNK?
