Nine Great Photos from the Dallas Burlesque Festival (NSFW)

Wowsa! This year's Dallas Burlesque Festival featured an especially talented cast of superstars -- I mean, this aerial dancer alone leaves me speechless. Here's our first round of dispatch pics from photographer Mike Brooks, who took one for the team by capturing all of the seduction in action. Picking our nine favorites wasn't an easy task, but here they are.

And no, they are not safe for work -- you're welcome.
