Fringe Festival Part 4: Peg-Ass-Us

Posted by Sarah / June 20, 2008

Peg-Ass-UsSince I saw the girl walking around with a strap-on around her head at the Fringe Festival opening event, my curiosity was piqued and I had to see what this was all about. Last night, I went to see the burlesque show cleverly named Peg-Ass-Us. It's a show about pegging. Wondering what pegging is? It's when a woman straps one on and does a man up the (!). The show was presented at the Studio Juste Pour Rire by a company from New York, USA.

It was a very interesting, entertaining, funny and educative show. When I think burlesque, I always sort of imagined a stage lined with women in corsets and such (not like strippers, but you know what I mean). Apparently, my definition of burlesque was off the track; everybody's gotta learn sometime. Though it did feature full on nudity, this show was more like the wikipedia definition of burlesque: it featured a variety of stage acts like song, music, dance, skits, demonstrations, etc. I learned a lot about the prostate and laughed a lot in the process.

Peg-Ass-Us 2The show also approached many of the moral issues that arise with the sexual practice along with the underlying history. While the girl is an easy-going bombshell open to many things, the guy plays the more conservative part, constantly trying to stop the loose discourse of his partner. It must be said that if you have virgin ears or get offended by things of an explicit sexual nature, you probably should stay away from this one. However, I tend to enjoy the free discourse and all the learning involved in such things. I especially like it when it's presented in a variety of entertaining ways like this was­.

It was definitely a fun and enjoyable show. Go see it and take your friends. You still have two chances to catch the show:

WOW..a DYSLEXIC moment on my part as I misread the opening line of your report as "Since I W.A.S. the girl walking around with a strap-on around her head at the Fringe Festival opening event....." LOL

I thought to myself...'SO thats how Sarah gets to attend all these cool gigs then' and let me tell you that MY curiosity was ALSO very much piqued ;D

OK SO "Young People F***ing." and "Peg-Ass-Us." are the top candidates for our Sunday evening agenda :D
