Weimar cabaret goddess Anita Berber led a life that would be considered shocking even today. Berber embodied decadence: she was an unapologetic spendthrift drug addict and alcoholic sometime prostitute whose many high-profile bisexual and S&M affairs remain the stuff of legend.

Anita Berber Dresden - 1925 Berlin) A German cabaret dancer and actress, she was -scandalously- known for her bisexuality, androgynous appearance, drug usage and dancing in the nude.
