Playing Footsie: Footsie Party at My Boudoir


A new way to play footsie is coming to San Francisco, and you can get a sneak peek (as well as 30 percent off all merch) this Friday at My Boudoir Lingerie boutique if you’re brave enough to meet three lovely ladies who’ll most certainly challenge you to pole dance, dress scantily and prep for professional boudoir pictures with your girlfriends (now that’s the kind of pants on the ground action we welcome).

It’s all part of the Footsie Party sneak peek from Footise creators Michelle Valeriano, Val Cunningham and Monica Michelle.

“I sincerely believe we can make a huge impact in confidence for each lady we serve.” says Cunningham, a longtime local dance instructor. “I teach women everyday who strive so hard to be as strong and successful as their man that they have lost touch with their most feminine side.”

So what is a Footsie party exactly? Think of it as a grown-up version of a slumber party with pro hair and make-up sessions for each guest and a pro boudoir photo session. Oh yeah, and instead of Rainbow Bright pajamas and a pillow fight, you’re more likely to be rockin’ sexy lingerie while learning a gravity-defying pole dance move. We think it begs to be part of your next bachelorette, girls night out or girlfriends gone wild adventure.

The footsie festivities go down tomorrow from 6-9 My Boudoir,  2285 Union St.
