INIQUITY NEWS #25


Hello once again from the West Coast Fetish Scene. :-)

It has been a while since the last IQ News, so let me start by welcoming the many new members to the INIQUITY LIST. Ok, the password is........ "INIQUITY".
Yep, that's the IQ Password for all the shopping and discounts. I can hear you reeling at the sheer ingeniousness of how obscure and well hidden the password is. Heh. ;-)

I suppose the greatest news is how spectacularly the YOU DO VOODOO Ball Weekend went. Truly the finest event that I, Arcane, have ever been involved in. For those of you lucky enough to make it to the Pre-Party at the Erotic Hologram Gallery, I can tell you that the event was literally straight out of my imagination! People looked amazing, the food was spectacular, and the energy was excellent. I think next time I will get the bartender an assistant though! He was swamped and working at light-speed all night long! The owners of the Holo Gallery were absolutely delighted with our crowd, and in fact they made a few hologram sales that night and have already asked us to return. :-)

The Main Event -- the YOU DO VOODOO Ball itself -- was huge and over the top and exactly what we wanted. I am so pleased by all the responses to the fashion show (chief choreographer yours truly) which went off almost perfectly. Exactly as I was hoping for, people felt that they didn't just get fashion, but truly got a SHOW as well. :-)
The DJ's were incredible, and I hear the VIP Area was nothing but fantastic all night -- in all honesty I was so busy taking care of all of you guys that I only even got to spend about 5 minutes up there all night! Doh! The most important thing to me nonetheless is that you had a fantastic time.
The vendors were all cool and interesting, the dungeons were used in entirety almost all night long, 200 free copies of SKIN TWO magazine went home with those who arrived early, and all in all everyone looked AMAZING! I must admit that part of my contract with DomDominion included a clause which said that I, Arcane, had to "lighten up" a bit on the dress code if our pre-sale tickets were not at a certain number (you would not believe the cost of this event!!!), and in case you saw a few people in there who looked a bit out of place it was because of that clause. To be absolutely honest however, of the 560 people in the building, only about 15 looked out of place. You know me -- if I had 100% control of the dress code those 15 would not have been allowed in, call me what you will. ;-)
NONETHELESS, even most of those 15 at least made an attempt to get into the style of the night, and to the few men amongst those 15 who wore full-on formal tuxedos, you looked great and I appreciate the effort you made. At this point I think I have safely proven that loosening the dress code really does not create a significant benefit (and in my and others opinion it DOES take away from that true "Everyone As A Fetish VIP" feeling), so we can all expect future INIQUITY Events to be back on track with the full-on INIQUITY DRESS CODE. The experiment was conducted, the results are in, and it is time to get back on track. Next time I chose to partner, rest assured my contract will be allowing zero leeway on this. ;-)

In any event, the VOODOO Ball otherwise ran spectacularly until 3 a.m. The MC Paul Nathan was hysterical in his ad-libbing, even offering to sell Fetish Diva Midori! The Costume Contest was interesting to say the least -- the winner was a demon-man who many in the Los Angeles Scene are familiar with. My personal favorites were a couple dressed in full-on Louis The 14th Masquerade / Formal Ball attire made 100% out of Fetish Materials, and they made these themselves!

About the only real glitch to the night was that the event occurred in a large part to promote the DomDominion.com website and Calendar. The Fashion Show itself was an actual showcase of the Dominas from the DomDominion calendar, but due to unforeseen circumstances the promotion of the calendar itself practically did not happen.
THUS, let me take this moment to let you all know that if you have an interest in seeing the innovative and intriguing DomDominion Domina calendar, by all means head on over to http://www.DomDominion.com

Last but not least, I want to express particular thanks to the various entities who threw the after parties -- you know who you are. I knew the VOODOO Weekend was going to be a 2 day event, but the after-parties were an excellent surprise. :-)

Also in recent months San Francisco was graced with another edition of the SLICK Fetish Ball at the DNA. Very similar in many respects to the SLICK last November, this time the fashion show was put together in large part (from my understanding) by well known corsetiere Autumn from Dark Garden herself, who happens to also have a background in circus and performance. I must say, having seen A LOT of shows at various Fetish Festivals and Balls around the world, that this one that I just saw at the last SLICK was truly in the "A" category. It was a full cabaret of performers which included not only a complete acrobat vignette, but also one the most original fire dance performances I have ever witnessed. In this, two women manipulated four torches to produce a show worthy of psychotropic acclaim. The real kicker was that one woman had torches whose flames were not orange at all, but brilliant BLUE. Apparently she does this by dipping into gasoline or something like that. In any event the blue flames intertwining with the orange flames of her partner was visually completely unique and amazing. :-)

Before we jump into the rest of this issue, here is a special announcement:

Speaking of AMAZING INTERNATIONAL EVENTS,
next stop GERMANY....

(from the promoters of Night of Passion)

Hello,

It’s time again! The next Night of Passion will take place next month, on March 16th and the tickets are now on sale.

We will hold the party in the same castle as last time. It is near Bamberg, Germany (the nearest airport is Nurnberg), in the north of Bavaria. This location is absolutely gorgeous and since we started the ticket sale at the end of last week, we have already sold over 60% of our tickets. Unfortunately there are no hotel rooms available in this castle, but we reserved all of the rooms in a nearby business hotel and organized a shuttle bus.

Even so it seems like everything became more expensive this year, we lowered our price to 75 Euros per person. The hotel rooms (which cannot be booked through us) will be 62 Euro for a double and 51 Euro for a single (both including breakfast).

The order form is now online: http://www.xklusiv.de/english-formular.html

And this is what we offer this time:
- Exclusive, delicious buffet
- Large slave auction
- Surprise show
- Exhibition by Arne Jahn
- Dancefloor with DJ Charly Jungbluth (Extravaganza, Hamburg)
- Free, temporary Tattoos by BodyFun
- Various, well equipped play areas all over the castle

Slave auction:
An auction always lives from the participation of our guests. So if you are interested in the auction, please get in touch with us. Maybe we can make a nice show out of it, for example if someone would like to sell his or her slave for an entire weekend or week. Of course it will be possible to sign up for the auction during the party and everyone can set their own limitations and time restrictions. So it is up to you, if you offer 20 minutes of foot massaging or a week as a cage pet.

Hotel:
The castle is located alone on a small hill in the middle of a forest and unfortunately offers no hotel rooms for our guests. But we have booked all the rooms of a nearby business hotel, and you can get a room there to a special rate (double 62 Euros and single 51 Euros including breakfast). On the evening of the party, there will be a shuttle bus, connecting the hotel and the castle. This extra service will be charged at two or three Euros per person, but will be cheaper then a taxi and better then driving your own car.

Dress code:
We don't think of this as a true fetish party and dislike a strict dress code, but many of our guests wear spectacular fetish outfits and it fits perfectly to the atmosphere of the castle. Our party is one of the most elegant events around. Therefore we ask you, to spend some time on the choice of your wardrobe. It doesn't have to be expensive or unique, but it should fit to the setting. If you dislike fetish clothing, you will be fine with an evening dress or a tuxedo.

Location and Booking:
Unfortunately there are some envious people around, who try to destroy such a kind of parties. Due to this and in order not to ruin the reputation of our hosts in the castles and palaces, we keep the location secret. Only ticket holders are given the address and the roadmap to the castle. Therefore we ask all of you not to tell any one where the party takes place. We have no ticket sale on the evening of the party and we will only take tickets back until March 6th. If you are looking for returned tickets, there will probably be a queue and even then only until three days before the event. Afterwards we'll travel south to prepare everything for the big evening. If you order tickets, you have to pay immediately we will not reserve tickets for a longer period. When we are sold out, we will immediately transfer back the money of people who did not get a ticket.

Who is invited, who's not?
The party is mainly for couples, because singles usually do not meet the perfect partner at a BDSM Party and many couples feel harassed by too many single men watching or even touching them. And to charge single men more money is a lousy way to make money out of them. We don't like to make any false promises and therefore we only allow couples and people, coming with them. Of course bisexual couples are welcome and if a group of friends would like to come along, it is also fine with us. And for the exceptionally nice singles, we have ten tickets left, so that they have a chance to participate at this unique event. This has worked fine in the past and we hope it will do so for the future as well. And the misbehavior of anybody, which is coming to our attention, will result in a permanent ban from our events.

Your Xklusiv-Team

TORTURE GARDEN NEWS (from the promoters)

TG BRIGHTON
The TG crew are returning to Brighton on the 23rd of March with full line up of DJ’s, designers, artists, performers and traveling TG regulars for a follow up to last years sell out night. It will be held once again at Concord 2, a fantastic three-room venue, situated directly across the road from the sea.

TG 11 BIRTHDAY PARTY

Torture Garden is turning a whole 11 years old in April and we plan to celebrate big time in opulent debauchery at the Brixton Academy!!!! The venue will be tailored to torture garden with two dungeons - medical and traditional, a flat dance floor (as opposed to the usual sloped floor of the Academy), art instillations and visuals.
So far we have the world-renowned Fetish fashion designer Manuel Albaran, from Barcelona and E. Garbs from Brighton doing innovative and different fashion shows. There will also be fire performers, burlesque dancers, caged podium grrrls, suspension performance, stilt walkers, a big DJ line up and much more. Come celebrate with us……..tickets on sale very soon…..

DUNGEON CHANGES
As you may of noticed the darkroom has been removed from the dungeon. Torture Garden in conjunction with Dungeon Masters Conversions decided to address the issue of “gropers”. This is due to reports of women, in particular, being subject to unwanted attention. We have not received any complaints about harassment since and hope that this move has sorted it out. However, TG is aware that the darkroom was popular so we decided to create two new chill-out rooms, one for strangers and one for lovers (no single individuals allowed). We have also introduced the peepshow in the dungeon as a place for people to be seen and not touched.

As for the piercing show on Saturday 26th TG, it was not a one off. Dungeon Masters Conversions will be continuing to do demonstration/ performance play pieces, aiming to entertain while leading by example on safe play.

UPCOMING Torture Garden DATES:
TG Brighton – March 23rd
TG Easter Special – March 29th

Victories and........Boycotts?
______________________________

(from an INIQUITY Reader -- Thanks!)

Found an article in the Chicago Tribune about an S&M convention held on Valentines day. A group of conservative women protested so loudly that the Radisson Hotel dropped the event. The promoters moved it to the Ramada, and when the women protested again the Ramada and the Chicago police both told them to politely fuck off. The article is called "Conservative women all whipped up over Rosemont S&M fest" and it was published on 2-15-02. The link on the page is:
http://www.chicagotribune.co.../chi-0202150011feb15.story?coll=chi%2Dleisuretempo%2dhe

I'm not sure if that's going to work, so you may have to go the Chicago Tribune website and look in the archives the writers name is Lou Carlozo. Just thought other I.Q. (Ed. -- That's You Guys) might be interested in a small victory like this especially outside of California. It also gives interesting data on how many people are interested in or turned on by S&M oriented activities.

P.S. Maybe a Radisson boycott is in order too.

(Ed. -- What do you readers think? Maybe we can also get Ramada to make known its general Pro-Perv Policy?)
