The burlesque scene tickles the fantasies of the "vanilla" mainstream, while also appealing to feminists who see it as a safe haven for their sexuality. At Stockholm’s Burlesque Festival, we meet Nick the Dick, who is participating in The Tassel and Twirl Championship for the first time; Aurora, a socialist-feminist; and Thorbjörn, who likes to dress up in womens clothing to challenge male stereotypes.
