Not for the faint hearted! Sep 09, 2011
Went to see the Zumanity show in the New York New York hotel and casino in September 2010. It was by far the best show I watched in Vegas and I went to quite a few. From the minute you walk through the door you are greeted by the characters from the show who pose for photographs. There are a few erotic shops with everything from basques to nipple tassles...definitely not for the faint hearted!!

The tickets for the show weren't overly expensive but the drinks at the bar are extortionate, however if you're feeling particularly flush try each of the iced cocktails which are delicious!

The show itself is out of this world!! I never knew a body could contort into such shapes!! If you are shy don't sit at the front as the warm up comedy drag queen act may pick you out of the crowd for a public humiliation. Great fun and would 100% recommend!!

One of the most romantic and erotic nights I have ever had, was in a loveseat at Zumanity.

The other side of Cirque du Soleil, this is an adults only human circus, exploring the body, sensuality, the duality of the sexes, flirtation, arousal of the senses through visual imagery,revealing costumes, bawdy dialogues, and beautiful singing.

The seating is divided intothree different categories. The cheapest seats are the cabaret stools ($69), which may not afford the best views (since they are in the very back of the theater), or enable you to interact, but perhapsyou are merely curious...The standard theater seats ($99) are locatedat stage level or on balconies, and will allow you to be shy but still be wrapped up in all of the excitement. Finally, the Duo Sofas(sold in pairs, per person $129) are the highly recommended way to go in this show. My boyfriend and I had a loveseat right infront of the stage. It was amazing!

We had performers draping their sinewy bodies over us, we were fed chocolate covered strawberries by a voluptuous french maid, caressed by the silken robe of the "mistress of seduction," and felt as though we were a part of the show.

It is an overwhelming experience."Waterbowl was one of the most beautiful parts of the show.A sizeable glass bowl, filled with water, in which two female contortionists dive in and out, allows the audience to explore theirbodies and the seemingly boundless limits of the human body.

"Straps" was quite different from the other performances, as this was one was unaccompanied by music. In this, an aerial performer is literally strapped into leather, and suspended below the ceiling. The audience hears moans, sighs, and heavy breathing, as the suspended woman moves from one erotic pose to another, all the while being bound by the leather straps, that give her alternating sensations of pleasure and pain.

Aerial dance is my favorite aspect of any Cirque show, and the one presented here, called "Tissus," brings you close to tears. The story isa classic tale of the object of a man's desire, seemingly unattainable, until the two worlds collide. The woman is a tall , lythe, blonde goddess; the male a little person with incredible upper body strength. The two create a unique combination.

There are so many amazing characteristics of each performance, each performer. There is African tribal dance, a milk bath, flamenco dancing, aerial hoops, male striptease, tantric sex-like dual contortionists, comedy, and a climactic orgy.

Whether you are curious, or see the world of sensuality and passion as your own, explore the other side of Cirque du Soleil. You will not be disappointed.

Sounds like it was a fantastic show. When I went to Vegas, the show was not on. I guess they were on break. But I fully intend on going back to catch the show.
