It's not sexist to have a show consisting of entirely female magicians, any more than it would be sexist to have a show consisting entirely of male magicians.

It's advertised as Sexy, and it uses terms such as Beautiful and Cute to describe the performers.

Dunno about you, but I don't usually see male conjurors advertised using equivalent terminology.

I'm neither agreeing nor disagreeing with the "sexist" comment. However, I do think that this advertising is primarily based not on the fact that the performers are conjurors but on their pulchritude. And I don't have a problem with that.

Short version:

When will Rogue Productions proudly present a "SEXY MAGIC SHOW" with an all-male lineup?

Even shorter version:

"Sexy" to whom?


Longer version:

(A) Was the goal to assemble a "Sexy Magic Show"? If so, its scope seemingly does not look beyond women. To limit "sexy" to women blatantly panders to the perspective of half the population, and ignores that of the other. Where are the sexy male magicians in this Sexy Magic Show?

(B) Is the goal to assemble a show of women magicians? Yet by adding the extra label of "Sexy Magic," the women magicians who qualify to work the show then become limited to those (a) perceived as and/or (b) willing to frame themselves as sex objects for an (implied) audience of men.

(C) This one may be the most important: When does this venue hire women magicians outside of this sex-object framing (whether in the show title or the performer's description)? From the website, here's the list of performers at all the other shows from Sept 9 - Oct 29, nearly two months worth of shows. Of these, how many are women? Any at all? Also note that these performers are routinely described in terms of their magical abilities, mastery and status, not their appearance.

- The Raven (Fresh New Blood!)
- Lee Alan Barrett (Comedy Magic!)
- Thorsten Happel (Germany's Finest Perceptionist!)
- MC: Gary Dreifus
- Close-up: Suavee
- Michael Matson (Funny & Magical!)
- Yurini the Great (Funny & Wacky Magic!)
- Eric DeCamps (World-Famous & Talented!)
- Jay (Comical Sleight-of-Hand!)
- Stan (Master of Gambling Sleights!)
- Em (Lethal with a Deck of Cards!)
- Dennis Kyriakos (Suave, Comical Sleight-of-Hand Master!)
- Carl Mercurio (The Master of Comedy & Storytelling Returns!)
- Sasso (The Mind Freak!)
- Lee Alan Barrett (Comedy Magic at its Best!)
- Miguel the Magician (Magic, Motion & Mystery!)
- Tango (The Master of Coin Magic Returns!)
- The Raven (Dove Magic Extraordinaire!)
- Sasso (Award-Winning Mental Magic!)
- Faust (The Master of Masks & Mystery!)
- Lee Alan Barrett (Wacky Magic & Comedy!)
- Thorsten Happel (Germany's Finest Conjuror!)

woah, easy.....

If we disapprove, we ain't gotta go. And the show will suffer. If its hot, they'll rake it in. Yeah sex sells no doubt. If this show plays on the west coast, I'm there.

"SEXY MAGIC SHOW" with an all-male lineup? Interesting concept, but would be a risky venture as the target demographic could be severely limited. In the end, profit is what it's ultimately about.

What I find 'sexist' is the traditional use of the female assistant as a 'tool' in magic. I find THAT offensive.

I wish Rogue Productions much success.

In cosmopolitan places in the world, men, women, and couples go to sexy shows that consist mostly of women performers.

It would be completely erroneous to suggest that women magicians were only good for sexy shows.

There is absolutely no problem however, with having a 'sexy magic show' consisting of 'beautiful and cute', sexy, female performers.

Come on people! Most of the rest of the world understands these things. Femininity is sexy by it's very nature. There is nothing disparaging about it, presented properly.
