Ruth St Denis and Denishawn Dancers  Ishtar of the Seven-vert

I’m not sure I can eroticize a guy, but this scene I am writing may force me into the deed. Male sexuality is something I rather make fun of, but the reason I added tis scene was to transition from humor to more serious subject.

Anyone acquainted with the Inanna or the Ishtar myth cab guess what I’m switching from the topic of my posts from seven demons to seven veils. Writers familiar with Joseph Campbell will also see the obvious. I may pull a little surprise, though, because I have another seven to roll.

Magic Mike gives me the regional links, I look for; Channing Tatum and the movie have Tampa connections.
