Suicide Is Painless

How I learned to stop worrying and love naked women

SuicideGirls is capitalizing on its idiosyncratic "lifestyle brand," partnering with record companies and bands for promotions, marketing SuicideGirls apparel and merchandise (Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl has been photographed with an SG sticker on his guitar, and Atmosphere's MC Slug has been caught onstage sporting an SG hoodie), developing a coffee-table book and DVD, and sending the SuicideGirls Burlesque Tour across America. They'll need the momentum; in the wake of its success, imitators have proliferated, and its predecessors, like BurningAngel.com and RaverPorn.com, have benefited from SuicideGirls' popularity (I've found that IndieNudes.com is a great compendium of DIY erotic sites).

The Portland-based SuicideGirls offers a pierced and punk-rock take on the traditional girlie show. They perform at Hailey's on Friday.

I'm waiting eagerly for the SuicideGirls Burlesque Tour to get here. I'm sure I'll be among my peers there, similarly aged punk-rock boys looking to relive our youth vicariously through the fresher, freer generation baring its flesh. It's OK to admit that we like looking at naked girls; it's just too goddamn bad it took a decade of shame for us to figure that out.
