I gotta tell ya–contortionism is a great example of how American culture isn’t really fair. I know this guy who used to BE a contortionist in a small show. He’d alternate shows with the female contortionist. SHE got the guys hollering out their phone numbers and throwing money wearing more of a costume than most circus performers wear. He would do his show, and the women wouldn’t make a sound. Then they’d realize the show was over and run out of the tent as fast as they could.
