A lifelong resident, she's worked in all corners of the city (in the "straight" and "non-straight" worlds alike) and had her hand in everything from a death metal band to professional domination to yoga and personal training.
All of Melody's wide-ranging (and fucking awesome) interests, from slasher flicks to naked chicks, come together at the bar she co-owns, the Lucky 13 Saloon. Located in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Lucky 13 is a haven for freaks, geeks and misfits of all types. And you can often find Melody, all 99 hard-bodied pounds of her, behind the bar, ruling with an iron fist between swigs of Jack Daniels.
About Lucky 13, Melody says "[it's] basically my fantasy world come to life. Naked bitches and heavy metal and alcohol...It's like a Satanic Disneyland. With tits." Yes please!
We talked to this hard-rocking Renaissance woman from her home in New York City, and you can read our interview with Melody Henry after the jump!

We've got a great assortment of skin for you to choose from this week as the premium cable does what it does best. First, you may remember hot blonde Marin Ireland from her role on Homeland last year, but now she's back, brunette, and nuder than ever before for her role as an attorney on Boss. This week Marin got a guy to drop his trousers by dropping the charges against him, a move that Mr. Skin's team of legal experts has deemed "totally awesome."
Also nude this week, redhead Christiane Seidel made her nude debut trying to get cozy with the very chilly Michael Shannon on Boardwalk Empire, and things are looking up (and pointing up) for Dexter's seventh season as Officer Joey Quinn (Desmond Harrington)'s shady past with a strip club owner is revealed. Keep your eyes peeled for softcore favorite Christine Ngyuen, who exposes her left breast while working the pole. Speaking of working the pole...

"Flaming Nipples" may sound like the name of an all-girl punk band or a drink you would order on a singles' cruise, but that's what we've taken to calling the deleted scenes from David Lynch's surreal neo-noir Blue Velvet (1986) here at Skin Central. The scenes were taken from a work print presumed to be lost but recently unearthed at a Seattle movie theater, and while there are over 50 minutes of footage included on the Blu-ray disc (and now conveniently uploaded to YouTube), this video comes conveniently front-loaded with the breast part- a scene where a topless stripper smokes and two more sway in quintessentially Lynch fashion while another lights her nipples on fire in the background. You know, the usual.
How exactly did they get that effect? As the director says in his book Lynch on Lynch:
"They take these paper matches and split ‘em apart and then lick them and put them on their nipples, so the match-head is sitting right there and you really can’t see the little bit of cardboard. It’s sitting right there, very close. It may come out a quarter inch, but it burns for a while and then you put them out. It just burns long enough for the cut. And so it moved pretty nicely, you know."
Looks like we've got a new trick for the Mr. Skin company Christmas party next year.
And once you've checked out the re-discovered rackage in the first three minutes of this video, check out our Blue Velvet page here at MrSkin.com for lots more from star Isabella Rosselini...including her poon velvet.
Don't get too excited- the chances of Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson or Selena Gomez losing their shirts for the upcoming Spring Breakers are slim to "Mila Kunis in your bedroom with a whipped cream bikini".
But the films' producers are throwing horny guys a bone- they reportedly recruited local strippers to provide "authenticity" (read: boobies) to the movie's beach party scenes.
Combine that with the legion of paparazzi hanging around the set hoping to catch a glimpse of Vanessa's panties (God bless 'em), and you get the well-documented topless bacchanal you see here. Body shots for everybody!

We spend a lot of time at home here at Skin Central. The entirety of film and television history isn't going to fast-forward through itself!
But sometimes we do wonder what people are doing outside of our living rooms, so our skinterest was piqued when our friends at Time Out Chicago sent us a link to their "gigantic photo gallery of NSFW club photos" Unrated Chicago. We took a look around, and found out that the outside world is skinfinitely better than we could have imagined!
Naked burlesque stars reading science fiction novels! Pierced punkettes baring their pumpkins! Strippers skinpersonating Sarah Palin! Zombies! Oil Wrestling! Porn stars! Chicken! Porn and chicken!
We really need to get out more.

If a stripper doesn't strip, can you still call her a stripper? It's a question for the ages. And although we at Mr. Skin don't approve of non-nude dancers, we do have a certain appreciation for them--after all, it could be the first step to peeling down for real? So even though some actresses have played strippers and accidently popped a nip or lip, like Lindsay Lohan and Natalie Portman, they still made our list of the top 10 strippers who don't strip nude because the intention wasn't there.
Take it all off!
Though he is considerably less bald and golden, Mr. Skin has at least one thing in common with Mr. Oscar: an abiding love of onscreen ladies of the night. Common sense in Tinseltown states that if an actress wants the gods of the Academy to smile upon her, she should play a stripper, a hooker, or a nun. We here at Skin Central are biased towards the strippers and the hookers (though nuns aren’t always so bad), so we're turning on the red light for this skinspiratonal sampling of actresses who’ve gone from walking the streets to walking the red carpet.
Perhaps the most famous cinema call girl is Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman (1990). Julia charmed the Academy into a Best Actress nom after charming Richard Gere out of his pants as the ultimate hooker with a heart of gold. Body double Shelly Michelle serves most of the skin in this flick, but in one scene Jules lets a definite nip slip while rolling in the sack.
Elisabeth Shue also works hard for her money- hard enough to win an Oscar for her performance as a streetwalker in Leaving Las Vegas (1996). The scene where she pours Nicholas Cage a tequila body shot in the desert sun still has Mr. Skin all hot and bothered.
Way back in her Hanoi Jane days, Jane Fonda got liberated as a happy hooker in Klute (1971)- and got a little gold man for her trouble. Most of Jane’s nudity in the film is woefully under-lit, but her nice perky lil’ right nip pops up in this well-lit scene.
More recently, Marisa Tomei took off her top to pay the bills in The Wrestler (2008). Mr. Skin thought that Marissa’s hooters were rays of sunshine in the otherwise relentlessly downbeat film, and the Academy must have agreed, since they rewarded her with an Oscar nom.
Grab a handful of sweaty bills, because we've barely stroked the tip of the nude iceberg of skinema sex work, and Mr. Skin is gonna make it rain!
Stay tuned for more Academy-Award winning nudity all this week on the Mr. Skin blog!
K-Stew, who knew you had it in you?
Welcome to the Rileys inexplicably continues to perform poorly in limited release at the box office, but we here at Mr. Skin are heralding it as a ground-breaking perv-formance from Twilight temptress Kristen Stewart.
You'll recall that we added a Rileys scene to Kristen's Mr. Skin page, featuring the sexily scowling siren, clad in a crack-splitting thong, giving James Gandolfini a lap dance.
The scene looked rather lonely all by itself on her page, so we've included another scene from Rileys. Gandolfini wakes up the bratty beauty, and she responds by ripping off the bed covers and flashing more thong.
The even better news? The thong is crammed so far up her cute little crack that it looks like bare butt!
Watch here, and welcome Kristen Stewart to the Rileys... and to a hopeful future in the skin hall of fame. This is an ass-picious beginning!
