If there's one thing the world needs more of, it's naked girls on film. And thanks to indie-porn darlings, the Suicide Girls, we're about to get just that.

The company is in the midst of casting a reality show for VH1 that will follow a group of young women on tour with the Suicide Girls Burlesque Show. According to the organization's website, they'll be looking for their typical, tattooed type who also have a background in dance, and want to "pursue [their] dreams in the world of burlesque."

It's a little unclear where dreams can lead in the world of burlesque, especially now that Christina Aguilera, the reigning queen of fictional tassel-twirlers, seems to be quickly joining the ranks of the Sheen/Lohan set. And Suicide Girls hasn't always had a spotless reputation in terms of how they treat their talent -- in recent years, they've come under scrutiny for their "Member Review" process, in which aspiring pin-ups post nude pictures online for free, and members vote on whether the model's set should go up officially, at which point she would be paid.

Either way, no doubt many a young woman still wants to be part of the coveted and elite world of inked peelers. Auditions for the show have been held already in Vegas, and will soon make their way to New York and Los Angeles. Ladies, dust your tassels off.
