Wilderness Fest

Wilderness Festival - a proper middle-class bohemian-wannabe event, but so. much. fun.

We went swimming in the lake, wore real flowers in our hair, ate at banquets, watched capoeira, listened to East London spoken word, swing-dance/jived/strolled in The Torch Club, roller-skated at the disco, boogied in the Soul Casino, watched movies in the open air-theatre, and there was a Bugsy Malone inspired pie fight.

I handmade a hula hoop out of willow, for fudge sake. There was vegan jerky. We had to follow a naked red-headed lady on a horse in order to find the secret forest location of the masque ball.

In short, it was one of the best, surrealist festivals I've ever been to.











Thanks Wilderness, it was a blast.

popping my torture garden cherry

Are fetishes best explored? Or should they stay a fantasy?

There's only one way to find out. Go for it.

And go for it, we did. We finally booked our tickets to Torture Garden - the world's leading fetish club.

Home

I was fucking terrified.

Have you seen the crazy photos on the website? There's hardcore bondage, full-on nudity, blood, animal roleplay, ball gags - all manner of weird and wonderful things. I'm not into anything like that, but I have a motto to live by - try everything at least once.

So we latex-ed up, pulled on our PVC gloves, donned our darkest make-up, downed a bottle of wine, and made our way to Brixton Clubhouse for the Summer Ball.


We needn't have been so nervous. Everyone was so welcoming, friendly, and couldn't wait to pop our Torture Garden cherries. There was a large club room, with a pole and a stage for the burlesque entertainment. Then a large double-tiered roof terrace with long bar, sexual-play equipment, and hot tub. But the most intriguing, were the small, boudoir play rooms which were full of S&M and dungeon furniture - one of which contained an official spanker. These were the 'play rooms', and playful they were.

I'll be honest, I was completely sozzled by this point, so there are major gaps in what I remember. But what I do remember, was pretty awesome. Unfortunately for you, I won't be revealing exactly what happened that night - you're welcome to get me drunk and try to squeeze the truth out of me (there's no way those stories are passing sober lips), or you could try TG out for yourself.

The next Torture Garden event is on 7 September and tickets are on sale now. See you there ;-)

Olympic athlete or Porn Star?

What's better than the London 2012 Olympics?

NOTHING! Well, actually, how about London 2012 Olympic Athletes with funny names?

Yeah, that's pretty good...
