Bunny’s Bio: Bouncing out of her hometown of Indianapolis, Bunny Barebuns is Kink with a Wink! Heralded for her startling flexibility and seductive glares, Bunny is more likely to try and eat your face off than be caught munching on a carrot. A performer since the age of two, she spent three years grinding with Indy’s Rocket Doll Revue before venturing out of the nest earlier this year. Bunny is known best for live jazz improvs and classic numbers with a tongue-in-cheek bite.
Join Bunny Barebuns at BurlyCon 2015, November 12-15, 2015 in Seattle, WA. Registration is open now!
