Shy Freaks: Exploring BDSM for the Introvert with Mollena Williams
Wednesday, October 30th @8-10pm FREE!

If the thought of BDSM action gets you hot and bothered but the thought of dropping trou in the middle of a dungeon full of fellow kinksters leaves you cold and queasy, you just might be a shy freak! This class explores finding your own boundaries, and will offer some tools for self-assessment. How do you know if you should push your shyness, or let it sit? What do you do if your partner is a flaming show-off and you like nothing more than a quiet scene at home? And how can you overcome what YOU want to overcome without succumbing to potentially damaging scene pressures? All of these questions and more will be explored in a lively and interactive format where even the shyest freaks get their say!

We are thrilled to be bringing on Stinky Foo and Bartholo for this year’s Gloryhole party. If you’re afraid that the live XXX gloryhole show will be a little too tame for your eclectic sexual tastes, look no further than this pair of payasos, who will be bringing some hot electro play and serious clown fucking.

Stinky Foo and Bartholo are anything but funny.  They don’t tell jokes or do parodies or go to kids’ parties. If they had to work in a circus, it would be a fetish circus. They are known as the biggest clown fucker couple in L.A.

Stinky and Bartholo have performed all around town at gay bars and LGBT events, often alongside The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, raising money for various charities and nonprofits. (All of their profits are donated.) They take pride in changing the minds of the clown-fearing by creating a playful, kinky atmosphere that engages the spectators completely.

Hide: Art on Leather by Karl Hamilton-CoxFriday in Chicago

0

by thepleasurechest

hide

HIDE is an exhibition from Karl Hamilton-Cox of Art On Leather. The exhibit features erotic works painted on leather canvas.

Of his first showing outside of the UK, the artist says “My work is unashamedly illustrative in nature as I prefer a realism style that I feel is more of a technical challenge than contemporary representative or abstract genres.” He developed his painting on leather technique after he was asked to do a bomber jacket sample in early 2011. With some lateral thinking he has successfully adapted the concept to the UK fetish and alternative lifestyle markets.

Chicago readers are invited to join us at the opening of HIDE this Friday night from 9 to 11 PM at the G.A.G. Contemporary Fetish Gallery located at the Leather Archives and Museum. You can even RSVP on Fetlife.
