What a Beautiful Girl Wants: Mariah Rivera

“I like a confident man, and I want him to make the moves.”

Bow down before Mariah Rivera, one of the top burlesque dancers in Las Vegas.

The brunette beauty joined the cast of FANTASY at the Luxor Hotel and Casino around a decade ago, steadily working her way to become the show’s company manager and one of its lead dancers. 

Here, get a closer look at the girl behind the feather boa. She told Maxim what she looks for in a man, what she loves for a man to do in the bedroom and her ultimate sex fantasy.


How can a man catch your attention?
Be funny! I love a man who can laugh at himself and doesn’t take himself too seriously.

What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
“Did you just fart? Because you blow me away!”


How do you let a man know you’re interested?
Smile! I think you tell everything in a smile.

What’s your ideal date?
Fancy dinner and wine, show tickets and then dancing the night away.


What about a man turns you on the most?
Abs! I need my man to take care of himself. I work out and want someone who works out with me.

When do you feel sexiest?
I get to feel my sexiest every night when I’m on stage dancing in FANTASY.


Which part of your body do you like to show off most on Instagram?
My abs. I work hard for them and like to show the dedication.

What is your favorite thing for a man to do in the bedroom?
Not snore! But really, I like a confident man, and I want him to make the moves.


What else should a man never do in the bedroom?
Never say the wrong name.

Got it. Any sexy fantasies?
Being on a deserted island, just me and you, and doing anything and everything we want.


What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Reality TV! I love Vanderpump Rules.
