The lights go down, the stage goes bare and the tassels come off - burlesque beauties cuddle up with their one true love - their pets.

Wild Things: Burlesque Beauties and The Pets They Love is a candid photo book of today's top stars of burlesque and the pets they love.

With over 100 color photos by photographer Tony Marsico, Wild Things  gives you  a titillating and private peek into the real world of today's top burlesque sirens, living legends and aspiring stars with their true loves - their pets. See how these tempting temptresses unwind when the tassels come off and these burly-Q beauties cuddle up and relax with their cats, dogs, horses, snakes and many other loving pets.  From the domestic to the exotic, Tony has managed to capture the playful, loving and intimate relationship between these sizzling pin-ups and creatures which are so varied that they're as tiny as a fish --- or a big as a horse! ...And everything in between...

If you love burlesque.....If you love pin-ups.....If you love women....If you love photography.....If you love your pets...You're gonna love Wild Things! 

The forward to this book is written by Burlesque and Russ Meyer B-movie queen and true ultra vixen, the legendary Miss Francesca "Kitten" Natividad.

Where is all the money going?

$5,000 is a lot of money. It will cover the costs involved in the design, the preparation of files, printing and shipping books.

Please note that Kickstarter is an ALL or NOTHING approach - if we fall short by even a single $1.00 the project does not go ahead. But it is fine to go beyond the goal - I will deliver on all rewards listed. Thank you!!! 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

In the past I've set out to release 2 motion pictures, 1 book and 14 cd's with my band.They have all been released in a timely fashion. I've yet to find an obstacle that stops me once I'm on a roll! I truly can't imagine any obstacle other than a meteorite crashing into my work room and destroying all my photographs to delay this project!
