Michelle says: "Contrary to popular beliefs, strip tease just isn’t about tits and ass. While those elements are certainly the icing on the cake, you must first make the cake. I see too many performers standing on stage expecting applause because they took off a piece of clothing. In my opinion, you are not entitled to applause; you have to earn it, much like you earn respect. You have to make them ache to see what’s under the dress. Make them feel like there’s nothing else that matters in the world besides seeing your boobies. It’s a show of femininity and sexuality. You’re presenting the best you and the best parts of a woman. Do that in a way that’s undeniably sexy and you won’t be able to stop the applause."
