Freida Nipples supplies a curvaceous dose of sass and ass to any burlesque show.

Hey folks so the very observant amongst you may have noticed that I changed my handle to freida.nipples last night. This was due to a few nasty experiences recently both irl & on the internet which really made me question my safety, in particular as someone who works in adult entertainment & who speaks out on issues that a lot of people don’t wanna accept are problems in the first place AND which may trigger their own problematic behaviours. But I’ve been having a long hard think as it just didn’t sit right with me that I should have to change the way I’m doing things (AND enjoying doing them & a lot of people reach out to me and tell me they also enjoy) because of the way that predatory men are acting. So, no, that’s not happening. However, similarly I do want to ensure my safety as much as possible and therefore I am thinking greatly about how I can go about this beyond what I already do. I have always been aware of the risks of having my ‘real’ name Sade public could bring me, however I have consciously made the decision to keep it like this as I feel that the reason I connect with a lot of womenx on here is because I am open about personal issues AND how that relates to Freida as Freida IS about that so for me it doesn’t work at this current moment to compartmentalise the two. One doesn’t exist without the other, chicken & egg scenario (😂) and I don’t feel honest without sharing both. My Instagram has NEVER been for men, it’s always been a place for me to explore & share my experiences with similarly minded creative, kind & inspiring individuals who are validating af. So as my sister said to me tonight- I cannot live in fear so here I am, Sade, Freida, a human doing her best job of smashing the patriarchy into tiny pieces. The lyrics of this clip summarise it beautifully for me, hence why this is currently my most favourite act, enjoy, stay safe & as always fuck misogyny 😊💄💪🏻 #FreidaNipples #GirlsSupportGirls14 days ago
This act is so much fun to perform and I hope she gets lots more outings in 2019! ☀️ Inspired by my upbringing of Carry On films and British seaside day trips this act explores some of the themes which I’m passionate about using burlesque to explore with my audiences such as consent, female censorship/ autonomy & exhibitionism. This act is full of fun and a totally playful demeanour which is intended to pack more of a punch in many ways when the rules around what she can and can’t do are juxtaposition with the light hearted character. As it was developing I decided that this would be my tribute to Bettie Page who’s heart & soul shone so bright against such fear and hateful ‘discipline’ at that time. Something that, unfortunately, womxn are still experiencing today. So, whilst it’s fun & upbeat and simply touches on ‘Freeing The Nipple’, the act is aimed at challenging your whole perception around what we except from womxn and to simultaneously show that despite the restraints on what we ‘should & shouldn’t do’ we LIVE regardless 💋 #FreidaNipples #Burlesque #LetsGetPolitical #PerformanceArt #Striptease3 months ago
I found this lil’ number in a charity shop in Tasmania and had been planning on selling it even since I found it because I thought no way in hell would I want to have my arms out so much however I just put it on and actually kind of love it but also simultaneously feel like a fancy chicken, is fancy chicken a look what can be worked with? Thoughts... 😂🤔💋 #FreidaTheFancyChicken #ChickenDance3 months ago
Just two days until I get to strip outta this act again! Fun fact: I created the original version of this act in one morning on a huge fucking hangover. I was producing my first show a few weeks later and didn’t have the budget to book enough acts so knew I needed to perform twice however at the time had only JUST started performing so had only the one. I had a red sparkly dress and a few bits of lingerie that I liked and threw them together and it was entertaining and the audience loved it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it looked like this but it worked and I had fun as did the people buying the tickets. @millie_dollar & I had a great chat last night about the DIY aspect of burlesque which is one of the main factors I love it so much but also how much that has died out these days and everything is expected to be covered in Swarovski (which none of us can afford) and be 100% polished the first time you step out on stage. Newbies, remember, that isn’t and never has been what this art form is about. It’s about rebellion, going against what you’ve been told you should do with your body, expressing your divine femininity in a space which is often away from the male gaze and so so so much more. Don’t be afraid to go for it, break the norms and god forbid have a costume which ain’t covered in sequins which I will admit, this one now is- but I’ll dig a picture out of the first time I performed it to share soon! Originality, confidence and engagement trump sparky shit any day in my book 💋💕😂 #Burlesque #FreidaNipples #Sway #LateNightRamblings #ILoveThisArtForm10 months ago
Okay I’d like to go back now 🌚 Thinking so much about those in Ireland today. To the women who have had to make that difficult decision in the face of ‘no’ protesters. To the women who will have to and who will be haunted by the cruel and demeaning ‘no’ campaigning. Know that you are not a bad person, simply a good person making a hard decision. I thought this video would be apt as it’s a complete use of me using my right to My Body, My Choice. Lots of people will find this uncomfortable. Asking why? Does it make you uncomfortable that I like to show my body to the world? Do you feel annoyed even? Perhaps I’m tapping into that part of you that would love to show yours but you’re perhaps too shy or self conscious- either of those things are totally okay. But remember, always support other women in their right to do as they please with THEIR BODY. And know that as long as no one is being hurt in the process there should be no issue ✨⚡️💋❗️ #FreidaNipples #Feminism #MyBodyChoice #RepealThe8th #Exhibitionist10 months ago
