Cabaret was an important part of our history, and there are many movies with this theme. You probably saw a couple of them throughout your life, and there is a high chance that you enjoyed them.

When Life Imitates Art

This art form is quite old. It first appeared in France during the fifteenth century. Over the years, a lot of things changed, but the idea remained the same. It was all about entertainment, music, acting, and glamour.

In the U.S., cabaret incorporated elements of burlesque, drag, and striptease to create something new and unique. And as we all know, life often imitates art, and many wanted to …

Can Vibrators Cure Depression?

We find this to be a million-dollar question. Wouldn’t it be incredible if vibrators could cure depression? We sure think so. But where is this idea even coming from? Well, masturbation makes us all feel good, so that’s our best guess.

However, the history of vibrators hides another reason behind a question like this. Namely, vibrators were invented to cure “illnesses” in women that doctors just didn’t know how to deal with. They took their time solving that mystery, so vibrators were made more to help them than to help their female patients. 

So, welcome — this article is about the strange history of vibrators, which includes some achy fingers and very sexually frustrated medieval women. Let’s find out if vibrators can be a long-term cure for depression.

A Brief History Of Paris’s Dazzling Cabaret

Cabaret – a frivolous form of entertainment involving various musical, dance, and theatre acts being performed to an audience whilst they drink and dine – is a significant aspect of Parisian culture, which has helped to define the city’s very character. The cabaret clubs in the French capital – the Crazy Horse and Moulin Rouge, for example – are nothing short of legendary and have inspired various international artists, film-makers, and writers over the years.

It all started in November 1881, when Rodolphe Salis created what was initially called Le Cabaret Artistique, in Paris’s Montmartre district – the city’s bohemian center. It began as a sort of creative hub, where various musicians, dancers – even poets and writers, gathered to socialise, discuss their ideas and trial their pieces over a few drinks. Salis himself acted as the host and would introduce the numerous artists who gathered at his venue, …

Here’s Where to See Cabaret in Los Angeles

The word “cabaret” brings with it tons of evocations, many of which are false. All that cabaret means, really, is a combination of song and storytelling; an artist able to perform as their authentic self. And as an audience member, there is usually booze involved. What could be better than that? Los Angeles, of course, has dozens of cabaret venues throughout the city at which top-tier talent from around the world will drop in for performances. Here are some of the best.

Come to the Cabaret: A darker diversion

Cabaret. What does the word mean to you? Perhaps it’s Liza Minnelli in a bowler hat and suspenders. Or can-can dancers in fin-de-siècle Paris. Or a crooner in a 1950s’ New York supper club.

Perhaps it means a scene that’s preserved in aspic, a historic curiosity, a dead art form. Well, if so, it’s time to reconsider.

A cabaret revival has been throbbing in London for several years now. From the scruffy environs of the Bethnal Green Working Mens Club to the opulence of the Café de Paris near Piccadilly Circus, sizeable crowds gather most nights of the week somewhere in the capital to take in a variety show. And now the performance art has been included as a separate category on this month’s Edinburgh Fringe programme for the first time. Cabaret is no dusty tin of preserved fruit – it’s fresh, ripe and bursting with flavour.

So what is …
