VOODOO Fetish Ball Weekend Schedule
______________________________


Why not start your weekend with a little shopping spree in San Francisco's finest Fetish Boutiques?
May we suggest starting with STORMY LEATHER (Howard, between 7th and 8th) where on SATURDAY January 12th at 12 noon the TWO KNOTTY BOYS will be teaching one of their infamous Bondage Workshops from noon to 2pm (all workshop details in the next section of IQN #24).
Stormy Leather is located in THE GREAT FETISH TRIANGLE (no, that is not what we call a typical San Francisco relationship), where MR S LEATHER and the spectacular new MADAME S are located just a few blocks away in one direction (7th Street a half block South of Folsom), and San Francisco's Fetish Discount Store LEATHER ETC is located just a few blocks away in the other direction (corner of 8th and Folsom).
Don't forget to depart the Great Fetish Triangle at some point during the shopping hours of the weekend to step into the elegant and exotic shop owned by the renowned DARK GARDEN CORSETRY (321 Linden Street, between Gough and Octavia).
As an alternative, you may wish to spend Sat the 12th perfecting your bondage techniques with a very special workshop by the world famous Mistress Midori at QSM on "THE SEDUCTIVE ART OF JAPANESE BONDAGE, A Demo Plus A Workshop." The Demo will be from 1-3 pm, and the Workshop itself will be from 3:30-5:30pm.
The Night of Saturday, January 12th is of course the YOU DO VOODOO VIP Pre-Party, which will be fully catered with several of the Voodoo DJ's spinning at this unique event. This Strict Dress Code affair will give the many people from all over a chance to meet others of our pervy persuasion in an elegant setting where your finest Fetish Fashion will be seen by many in a softer setting than the flashing disco lights of the following evening. Expect a few surprises! The location is a secret which you will find out upon purchase of a VIP Ticket for the event. You must be in possession of a VIP ticket to attend the Pre-Party on Saturday night. Oh, ok, I have to give a few hints: you will find yourself having a very "full" night (even though the ads only say 9pm-midnight....). ;-)
Spend the afternoon of the Sunday January 13th finishing up your shopping at the stores mentioned above. At ALL FOUR of these shops, VIP Ticket Holders will receive 10% OFF ALL PURCHASES for this weekend only, both Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th all day! You must show your pre-paid VIP ticket, VIP ticket receipt, or VIP wristband (from the Pre-Party) to receive your discount at the time of purchase.
Then consider continuing on your Fetish Journey with a bit more education:
On Sunday January 13th from 2:30-4:30 pm, MR S will present the highly acclaimed S&M writer Pat Califia teaching a workshop on "Conflict Resolution in SM Relationships." For those of you who are unfamiliar with Pat Califia, you may recognize the titles "Doc & Fluff" or "Sensuous Magic" -- Sensuous Magic was one of the seminal books on introductory S&M long before later titles like S/M 101 and Screw The Roses were printed, and in my opinion Pat Califia's Sensuous Magic is still the best of them all. :)

VIP TICKET WORKSHOP DISCOUNTS and Perks: ALL VIP Ticket Holders (Ticket, Receipt or Wristband) will be eligible for the following perks at the four workshops / demos during the YOU DO VOODOO Fetish Ball Weekend:
The Two Knotty Boys, Sat. Jan 12th at Stormy Leather: Regular Students $15; VOODOO VIPs only $5!!
Mistress Midori's JAPANESE BONDAGE, Sat. Jan 13th at QSM: Demo is $15 Regular Students, $10 VOODOO VIPs; Workshop $20 Regular Students, $15 VOODOO VIPs.
Pat Califia's "Conflict Resolution...," Sun. Jan 13th at MR S: All Students $25; VOODOO VIPs receive a FREE GIFT; All Students receive a $10 coupon for Mr S for that day's shopping (and the VIP Discount is ON TOP OF THAT). :)

See Below For Full Workshop Details on All Workshops!!!

Of course the culmination of the YOU DO VOODOO Fetish Ball Weekend will be the magnificent
YOU DO VOODOO Fetish Ball Itself! on the night of Sunday, January 13th! Join us at this spectacular event held at 550 Barneveld from 9pm to 3am (or later!). For more details on the VOODOO BALL itself, go to www.DomDominion.com for the fullest set of details regarding the night's activities, art, shows and more, or drop by www.ClubIniquity.com for a quick run down of the night along with a thorough description of the Dress Code and ideas to help you get started. Both websites also have a map to the exact location of the VOODOO BALL, and for those of you who have never been to 550 we highly recommend you familiarize yourself with the location.
NOTE: When you get to the general area of Bay Shore, look for the SEARCH LIGHT!!!

SEE YOU THERE! :)

THE SEDUCTIVE ART OF JAPANESE BONDAGE: Demo Plus Workshop
by Fetish Diva Midori
SPECIAL VOODOO VIP DISCOUNT! $5.00 off the Demo & $5.00 off the Workshop price with your VIP pass.
THE DEMO:
From beautiful and sensual to beautiful and excruciating, Japanese rope bondage is an art which has developed over centuries of martial and erotic practice. In this class, Midori will demonstrate a wide range of positions, including the harness, the hogtie, standing and bent-over poses. She'll explain how the ropes and knots are placed to achieve maximum effect. This class is based upon Midori's recently published book, The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, which is highly recommended as a reference text. Midori will be happy to autograph copies of her book, which is available for sale at QSM.
Demo Cost: $15/person. Doors open 12:30 PM. Demo Time: 1:00-3:00 PM.
THE WORKSHOP:
Here students will have the opportunity to practice the bondage positions while Midori gives individual feedback to each working couple. Please wear comfortable clothes that do not impede movement (tights, spandex, etc.). A large towel or yoga mat for the floor would be beneficial as well. Both novices and experienced players are welcome. There will be no genital
nudity.
Rope to bring: At least two 25' to 30' lengths of cotton or nylon rope. Approximately 1/3 to 1/2 inch diameter will do nicely. Bring more if you
like! Midori will also have rope available for sale.

Program Details:
Conflict Resolution in BDSM Relationships:
Conflict is an inevitable part of any healthy, authentic relationship. It is difficult enough to resolve in the context of vanilla sex, where inhibitions
about discussing sexuality and power imbalances can make it hard for people to speak their minds or figure out workable solutions. The participants in a role-based relationship bring all of their baggage about sexuality, gender, and intimacy, in addition to trying to function within the parameters of BDSM. It can be especially difficult for a bottom to speak up about their dissatisfaction with certain aspects of the relationship. And it is surprisingly difficult for some tops to focus on their own needs and put those on the relationship agenda. In this workshop, a therapist with eight years of experience doing couples counseling in various sexual minority communities will provide a constructive paradigm of relationship conflict and some practical tools for working out the kinks, so to speak, without
altering the polarized nature of the relationship.
Presenter Bio:
Patrick Califia is has been a leather community activist for more than 20 years. He is also the author of several fiction and nonfiction books and
articles about radical sex.In addition, he has a private practice as a therapist in the Bay Area.

Review: Club Enslaved in San Francisco
______________________________

A chancy operation this one, risking an opening night on a location like BOYS TOYS, a well known strip club also recently known for shaky management that has landed the venue in stringent circumstances.
Well, I am happy to say that Bondage Diva Paige White managed to succeed where so many others would never have been able to pull it off. The grand opening of San Francisco's newest Fetish Fashion Fest, CLUB ENSLAVED hosted by Paige White, was a success. :)
At first the buzz before opening night seemed like pure puzzlement, wondering what a Fetish Club was going to be like at a strip club. Well, certainly anyone who had been in to BOYS TOYS knew that the location was classy enough, with it's clean, lounge downstairs and fine restaurant upstairs. Nonetheless, a strip club? Would there be S&M allowed? What would the shows be like?
Arriving at about 11pm, I was pleased to see a number of familiar faces entering at the same time. In fact, the attendance was almost a who's-who of the San Francisco Fetish Fashion world, and no wonder since the main show included fashions by Madame S, Stormy Leather, and Moral Minority. The host for the night was Fetish Supermodel Persephone, who simply relaxed and had fun with the audience. Before the show many people gathered upstairs in the restaurant while others enjoyed the downstairs bar area. More than anything else it was a highly social atmosphere of people dressed incredibly.
In addition to the fashion show, Persephone also hosted the costume contest. Suffice it to say one gentleman came dressed as a huge rubber zebra -- yes a zebra -- and he stole the show. Part of the judging included the various participants doing a pole dance, and the image of a giant rubber zebra dancing on the pole will be forever emblazoned on my mind. By the time he was finished, the entire audience was chanting, "ZEBRA! ZEBRA! ZEBRA!" Of course the prize was his. On a humorous note, this was his first Fetish Event ever -- somehow I think he became a convert that night. ;-)
After the shows the night drifted back into a pleasant evening amongst the various "Feteratti" of the local scene. Notable was that this event even drew people from Los Angeles, New York and Santa Cruz.
The only significant glitch in the night was when the shady management of BOYS TOYS decided to allow some of their non-fetish clad friends inside despite the contract they signed giving 100% control of the attendance to ENSLAVED. Needless to say these few gawkers (and thank god they were very few in number) stood out like a sore thumb and after being shunned eventually left. With true vigor and honor and a sincere desire to make the next CLUB ENSLAVED even better, Paige and company have sworn that they will not be using BOYS TOYS again for a variety of reasons, the letting in of non-Fetish Dress Code folks being one of them. Future plans also include a separate play area for S&M.
All in all an EXCELLENT start for CLUB ENSLAVED and I do not think I would be presumptuous to say I expect that a loyal and immaculately attired following for CLUB ENSLAVED will grow rapidly.
Hands down, I recommend this club for any serious Fetish Fashion Perv visiting San Francisco. Stay tuned to this channel for future announcements about the next CLUB ENSLAVED.

Report: Los Angeles Fetish Dinner
______________________________

(thanks to Sabrina Belladonna)

"The evening of November 25 found more than fifty charitable revelers decked
out in their fetish gear partying the night away at the Ivy Manor, home to
many of LA's most successful play parties.
The highlight of these parties as always, had to be the attendees and the
sexy outfits they wore to the event. The difference at this party was that
every penny raised at the event went to the relief fund, and what fun we had
raising it! Dancing was available downstairs to the sounds of DJ Wolfie &
Mr.M.
The rooms at the Ivy Manor were open to the partiers for semi-private play,
while one of the rooms was fully wired for webcast performances by Isabella
Sinclaire, Ilsa Strix & Sabrina Belladonna. Isabella opened the show with
her two slaves and a surprise 'baby powdering' treatment for mouse, who
wore a bib, bonnet & diaper as he served the tasty treats provided by guest
chefs Damon Bruner & David Trotter. Next Ilsa Strix needled her slave with a
butterfly board demonstration. Finally Sabrina did a turnabout is fair play
with Lisa (who was also pressed into service downstairs at the buffet) and
Odette. First one girl then the other was treated to a 2 on 1 domination.
Once the performances wound up, everybody crowded downstairs again to see
who won what at the raffle, the prizes being provided by Syren, Retail Slut,
Kink in the Caribbean, Christine Kessler, Pierre & Gary Silva, Dave Naz, &
Misa Martin."

Club Jeux in Amsterdam
______________________________

(thanks to IQ reader Dan)

"FYI, there's a new bar in Amsterdam that your readers might want to know about. We visited Club Jeux (http://www.jeux.nl/) about 3 weeks ago just after they'd opened. Nick and Annette are delightful people and Club Jeux is centrally located on a small street that runs off the south-east corner of Dam Square. They're worth putting in your database!"

There you have it. Amsterdam has a perpetual ebb and flow of Fetish establishments, some who became famous and then faded from view, some who sold out to the mainstream, some who were the buzz of Europe but only if you knew who to talk to. This one, Club Jeux, sounds like a fine one in the tradition of some of Amsterdam's better Fetish bars from years past. I know I will certainly want to check it out on my next visit. :)

Wrap Up
______________________________

That's the latest folks. Absolutely have a Merry X-Mas and a Safe and Happy New Year. This last year, 2001 has been awfully hard on many people in so many ways. Hopefully we can see a brighter light just around the corner of January 1st, and equally INIQUITY will be proud to help kick off a significantly better 2002 with a magnificent Fetish start at the YOU DO VOODOO Fetish Ball.

May there be many naughty toys in your stocking this morning, may Santa eat all the cookies and drink all the milk, and may you open a box that contains that special toy which will bring you and some one you like many months of pleasure (yes, of course THAT kind of toy). ;-)

But more than anything else, may you simply find yourself in the company of someone who makes you smile on this X-mas day.

Fetish Dreams To You All, and To All A Goodnight. :)
