The Legends of Burlesque photo series captures the aging stars of such sensual shows. For those who are unaware of this niche performance, there are burlesque shows that revolve solely around older women, which is pretty liberating in ways that some may not be able to appreciate but should learn to. A woman confident in her body is both inspiring and sexy. Why should that end at a certain age?

Shot by Stephanie Diani, The Legends of Burlesque photo series showcase women who are all septuagenarians and have performed in burlesque shows well after turning 50, 60 or 70. Diani states, "I loved spending time with the women: they were wry and smart and playful." How can she not when they ask such questions as, "Do you have any of that cum-in-a-can I can use?"
