We attended countless burlesque shows (and finally had an excuse to loiter backstage) on our search for the créme de la créme of the LA scene. After witnessing much dancing, hip swinging and titty twirling, we narrowed it down to thirteen performers who knock it outta the park every time and have fun doing it. Because a good burlesque show is all about revelry: The performer feels good, the audience feels good. It's a celebration of the body (note: not all burlesquers are 36-24-36 females), it's a celebration of sex, of cutting loose and having a laugh, of flirting and fucking and everything in between. And our picks for LA's best burlesquers embody all that and more in their super sexy bodies. Can't get enough? We don't blame you: Check out each performer's individual page for even more cheeky (literally) shots.

Monday Night Tease is the longest-running burlesque sensation still going in L.A. -- and for good reason. The eclectic and talented acts arranged by the show's own Lili VonSchtupp must be seen to be believed. Don't believe me? See it for yourself. Or at least listen to some of the fun in this radio piece featuring on The Tease's Prince-themed show: https://soundcloud.com/chris-okula/monday-night-tease
