There are so many words to describe the feathered fan. It's seductive, sensual, playful, and expressive. In truth, it's all of that and more.
Fans have been around for centuries, and with Dita von Tesse leading the revival of burlesque, having a fan in your boudoir has never been more fun! (Click on ivillage's link to Dita von Tesse for the complete post.) There are multiple options with a fan, from doing a stripe tease, to fan dancing, to using a blindfold and caressing your lucky love. The soft, delicate feathers can only enhance an already intimate situation, making it more erotic.
Fans come in a variety of sizes, colors, and feathers. Alison Rubke, co-owner of Faire Frou Frou, says that the fans fly out of her store. Some of the more exquisite and one-of-a-kind fans can sell for a couple hundred to thousands of dollars. You can also pick up a quality, luxurious fan for under $100. Believe it or not, I've even seen them priced as low as $20. Although, remember that the large price difference varies based upon the quality and size of the fan as well as type of feathers used.
For those of you wanting more versatility out of your fan, you can take them out of the bedroom too. Smaller fans, known as "pocket fans," are recommended for this. At a black tie or formal event, the addition of a fan will add a luxurious, extravagant look to your overall attire. With wedding season and summer coming, feathered pocket fans are perfect for outside of the boudoir.
Whether you're into a big production, dressing up an outfit or simply enhancing your bedroom play, feathered fans are an enjoyable way to "Celebrate Your Inner Eve!"
