Las Vegas’ top five adult shows

Welcome to Las Vegas — the Entertainment Capital of the World and perhaps the only place on earth where being slightly sinful is not only suggested, but encouraged. Hey, the amount of inhibition that you check at the door is up to you, but nonetheless, if it’s naughty entertainment you’re looking for, we know just the way to get your night off to a steamy start. The following are some of our favorite, adult-only shows in no particular order.


Zumanity at New York-New York
“Zumanity” is Cirque du Soleil’s take on the sensual, erotic and raunchy side of human nature and what can we say? Really bendy people performing what could be coined as acrobatic Kama Sutra is not only rousingly entertaining but sensually mood-setting as well. Sure, there’s still the acrobatics and gravity-defying stunts – performed with minimal costuming – but the playful nature of the show offers audiences a creative take on the art of passion and seduction. Some of the numbers are definitely erotic, making you want to cuddle up to your date, while others are straight up hilarious. Emceed by the sassy drag queen, the Mistress of Sensuality, be prepared to gasp, in more ways than one, as you discover just how the tantalizingly toned bodies of “Zumanity” have flipped their way into the climax of entertainment.


Absinthe at Caesars Palace
Step inside the white tent in front of Caesars Palace and you are transported back to the Moulin Rouge. Hosted by the foul-mouthed ringleader The Gazillionaire and his equally-vulgar assistant, Joy Jenkins, “Absinthe” presents a cast of comedic eccentrics who perform everything from burlesque-style stripteases to tightrope acrobatics and astounding feats of strength. With its endless adult-only humor and its sexy cast, get ready for a night of laughs and jaw-dropping acts that will most likely become a part of your daily conversation for weeks to follow.


Chippendales at Rio
Oh yeah, the legendary Chippendales are still in Vegas and still as hot as ever. Showing off their chiseled bods in nothing more (and sometimes less) than bow-ties, wrist cuffs and jeans, the hunks of this male revue dance, strut and strip their way through dozens of sexy fantasies. Charismatic, fun and hot to boot, get ready for a show filled with surprises as these toned and playful men will flirt with the audience – and even bringing a few of them on stage for some special attention.


Fantasy at Luxor
With 14 dance numbers including a girls-only ménage à trois, a solo pole dancing act, an aerial performance, and a slow and steamy burlesque striptease from a curve-hugging evening gown to nothing but skin, there is certainly something for everyone in this sizzling performance. Dressed (some less than others) as cowgirls, rockers and Latin dancers to name a few, the sexy women of “Fantasy” perform tantalizing dance numbers that will drop jaws and fulfill wild fantasies with the comic relief of Sean E. Cooper between acts.

Puppetry of the Penis

Puppetry of the Penis at the Erotic Heritage Museum
To get to the nuts and bolts of it, “Puppetry of the Penis” lets it all hang out. Prepare yourself to see some Willies, Johnsons, Peter Peckers, if you will… during this fully nude showcase (except for the tennis shoes the guys wear). Masters of penis origami, the show’s two hilarious stars awe and shock audiences by folding, twisting, bulging and scooping their junk into creations such as “The Pelican,” “The Windsurfer,” “The Eiffel Tower,” “The Loch Ness Monster” and their signature creation, “The Hamburger,” and it’s really damn funny.


Trading one desert for another, I moved to Las Vegas from Arizona nearly three years ago. It was something about the sparkling lights and the all-encompassing entertainment factor that persuaded me to swap cacti for casinos and dry heat for well…even drier heat. And while I do love a good show, I will always keep true to my country girl ways seeing that I am an absolute sucker for a good country concert and will always indulge the opportunity to go out country dancing! But in a city that undoubtedly has some of the world’s best cuisine, a wild assortment of endless experiences, and of course phenomenal shows, Vegas certainly has that unparalleled good time vibe that can make a city slicker out of just about anyone… including myself!
