Who says microwaving a Lean Cuisine isn’t sexy?

Dita Von Teese is here to show you how to turn the mundane into the sensual with a hilarious new Funny Or Die video.

The burlesque icon, 43, shows how flossing, filing your quarterly taxes and – yes, even wearing a fanny pack – can be sexy. All it takes is a little attitude (and a lot of lingerie).

And for more sexy inspiration, Von Teese released a new book last week, Your Beauty Mark: The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour. It includes details on her hair, exercise routines and her specialty – makeup – the beauty queen just released her own bright red lipstick as a collaboration with M.A.C. Cosmetics.

Von Teese is also an educator on the proper use of lingerie – in 2014, she released a line of underwear with Bloomingdale’s and advocated for taking lingerie outside the bedroom.

“I don’t believe that garter belts are just vanity pieces. I think they are practical and sexy and should be worn in every day life,” she told PEOPLE.
