Went out to a nice little kinky night last night… a night of ‘dark science’ at the Power House Museum in Ultimo. As the night promised flesh hook suspension and other kinky skin-related delights the whole kinky community was out in force with some 5% of goths mixed into the crowd.
There were ‘stations’ set up in the hall of the museum with live DJ and commentary from a Radio National science presenter and a dermatologist. The most interesting one by far was the flesh hook suspension by the wonderful Polymorph crew, and within that a team of two brothers, one who was inserting hooks and managing the performance safety, and the other who got suspended through 12 hooks in his body, wearing cute latex undies, kooky hat, glasses, body mods and tats.. was really wonderful to see him get into his mental-spiritual space and see him swing and dance around in the air on the hooks.. watching it from very close and even exchanging some smiles with him
There was some discussion on endorphins, psychological spaces, the properties of skin and mind, and how flesh hooks work. In the end though I think the kink community and practitioners within know way more than what was presented there. Yet it’s great to see perverted stuff being put out there and celebrated… we need more of these!!!
The rest wasn’t quite so interesting: live tattooing, a hand illusion, a tens unit (mild electricity) and a few other small things… but the vibe was nice and managed to catch up with quite a few friends at the museum and afterwards in Ultimo.
