has had a long-standing excellent relationship with the San Francisco
Gothic-BDSM group known as the GGPET. Although INIQUITY is not
expressly Gothic in nature, together INIQUITY and GGPET have thrown
some outstanding evenings which culminated in a completely free, private
party for INIQUITY and GGPET members only (and which to this day is
still being hailed as the Best Night Ever at San Francisco's POWER EXCHANGE).

LAS VEGAS JOINS THE FUN....AT LAST.... with "ORANGE" !!!
it that a couple of new promoters plan to produce a completely
new kind of Fetish Club in Las Vegas. For those of you who are
not familiar with the Scene in Vegas, lets just say that Sin City is
not, and in fact should be called Hypocrisy Central. In LV proper,
Professional Domination services are illegal and treated like prostitution.
Fetish Events can be shut down on a whim, and in general the atmosphere
is one of "Give Us Your Money, Get Shitfaced Drunk, And Don't Do ANYTHING
Else (unless in the privacy of your own hotel room)." Even
S&M performance art pieces run the risk of getting the performers
arrested! Sin City my ass.
the good news is that something new is happening. It is called
ORANGE, and it portends to be a regular After-Hours Fetish Party
that will run every weekend, Thurs-Sunday.
3120 Sirius Ave.#107 inside
the world famous PLAYPEN
Every Thurs-Sun, from 4a.m.
Open to the public, generally
a hand-picked crowd from other clubs, limited capacity
Resident DJ 4Play
Obedience Training, Whipping
Post, Hot Wax, Rack, Most erotically dressed contest, etc.

HATS OFF TO FETISH FACTORY FOR PIERCING THE "TAN&BEAUTIFUL" CURTAIN!!!
Beach, Florida. Gorgeous people, expensive restaurants, snobby
clubs, and Vanilla as All Hell. Until Now.
South Florida is home to
one of INIQUITY's truly favorite American Fetish Clubs: ALTER EGO, put
on once a month by Fetish Factory out of Ft. Lauderdale. In the
past ALTER EGO has seen a lot of movement, but all in the Ft. Lauderdale
region, which is a good half hour north of the infamous South Beach.
The very idea of a Fetish Event in South Beach seemed absurd amongst
the almost prudishly vanilla and resistant element that swarms there.
of miracles, FETISH FACTORY / ALTER EGO actually pierced that veil and
has held not one but TWO successful events in South Beach
proper, with more planned for the future....
We recently hosted our
Alter Ego fetish party at Goddess Nightclub in South Beach. This was
a milestone for our community and is the first absolute strict dress
code fetish party in the history of South Beach! Many others have called
for a fetish event on SoBe but have never succeeded and have always
allowed typical clubbers to enter less than dressed or in "all black"
and have never enjoyed a pure event with our community.
to thank all who attended our recent premier event on South Beach at
Goddess Nightclub. I must admit that Goddess Nightclub is the sexiest
nightclub we have ever promoted Alter Ego at! I was quite surprised
to hear such rave reviews about the Alter Ego experience on South Beach.
We also appreciate the warm welcome we were given by the management
and staff and have been invited back to host Alter Ego again at this
venue. We want to remind our faithful Broward County attendees
that we have been forced to make this change since being warned by local
law enforcement. Our community has been put on notice and we have been
offered the cities code making any club in the City of Fort Lauderdale
impossible to promote at. We suggest that you consider attending this
event on South Beach but if you feel it is too far to travel you may
consider the Aqua Lounge event in Boca Raton as an alternative.
We have been invited back to stay at the same
local hotels managed by http://www.southbeachgroup.com If you
are traveling far from home, we encourage you to make a reservation
for $75 a night by contacting Janise at 305-534-4069 x 352 (email: email@example.com). Janise has agreed
to allow us to reserve rooms for one night only, but I suggest you consider
a two night stay and enjoy the amenities at the hotel and make it a
For some of you, parking was an issue, and
I have been working on ways to remedy the situation. We suggest that
all attendees arrive at the club before midnight to avoid this problem.
We will have valet available out front for $10 as well as $10 parking
garage directly behind the club (enter from 7th street).
We will continue to maintain our strict fetish
dress code and refuse to drop our guard. We will not allow any person
to be admitted in typical clubwear nor will we allow "All Black". We
have maintained our strict dress code for too many years now and feel
it is one of the reasons for our continued success. Details describing
the next event at Goddess will be available on our main page as well
as the events page very soon. We will also have flyers and discounted
tickets available next week.
If you are unfamiliar with our plans we suggest
you click on the following link to learn more!
Please keep your eyes on the Clearance rack on our online store. We
will be slashing prices this week and the prices will be reflected online.
All items on the clearance rack are available for immediate shipment!
#3: NUIT DEMONIA this weekend in FRANCE.....
is a name in France that is associated with Fetish Fashion, and apparently
the occasional, large-scale Fetish event. From what we here at
IQ HQ have heard, France has a surprisingly good Fetish Scene if you
know where to look. This past event, NUIT DEMONIA, appears
to be right on target and aligned with everything we hold sacred within
the INIQUITY aesthetic. Although few of you will be likely to
attend such an event, we are posting it here so that hopefully you will
be able to get more info from the promoters on future events, as well
as enjoy their gallery of photos from past events. :-)

Sabrina Belladonna brings her infamous dinners back for the holidays...
have not yet tried one of Sabrina Belladonna's fantastic Fetish Dinners
at the Ivy Manor in LOS ANGELES, you really owe it to yourself.
This next one will be set
in the Holiday Spirit. Price remains the usual $50 per person.

GERMANY has another Fetish name to keep an eye on....
As you probably already know or at least expect, Germany has some INCREDIBLE
Fetish Events. We have reported in the past on the unparalleled
"NIGHT OF PASSION" parties (see below) and from what we have seen, like
France above, if you know where to look then you will be in for some
latest of these spectacular events to join the list comes to us under
the name EROMORPH. Check out their website...
GERMANY again -- and back to INIQUITY's favorite "NIGHT OF PASSION".....
last event: Nov 23rd
The location: a palace near Bamberg (Bavaria)
(NOTE: They are NOT KIDDING when they say "palace" or "castle", etc
-- No Joke!!!)
event: Die Nacht der Leidenschaft (The Night Of Passion)
you want to set foot into a veritable Fetish Fairy Tale, partying
the long night away in a remote and unbelievable setting with the
Perveratti from various European countries in a truly elegant and
intimate setting, then you MUST attend one of these parties.
Plain and simple. INIQUITY considers the "Night of Passion"
parties and events to be amongst the very, very best in the entire
world that anyone on our staff has ever attended.
(from the website)
The Night of Passion
is one of Germany's, if not the worlds most exclusive BDSM and Fetish
Parties. Our guest's, some come regularly even from the USA and Australia,
keep telling us how unique our party is again and again. Even the
press honors and supports our party (for example Skin Two and Marquis).
The magical atmosphere of the castles, the style of the program and
the excellent buffet guarantee that the Night of Passion becomes an
unforgettable experience for all of our guest's. We do not divide
into VIPs and 'normal' guests and we are not doing it for the money.
Our aim is to create something unique and special, to enrich the scene.
This includes no photographers or camera teams at our party, a very
limited number of guests, invitations only for couples and people
accompanying them. The only important thing is the enjoyment of celebrating
an extraordinary fest in such a special setting.

to Hollywood -- SECRETARY
most of you have probably seen the exquisite celluloid celebration of
the D/s Lifestyle known as "SECRETARY."
If you haven't then drop
what you are doing and go see it right away. It is THAT Good.
movie stars James Spader as a Lawyer with a secret side, namely that
of a sincere Dominant. He seems to intimidate his "Secretaries"
until one day a woman walks in to apply for the job who could be no
more perfect. Why? She also has a secret side that Mr. Spader's
character helps her discover -- that of a sincere and devoted submissive.
vanillas who see this movie will and have missed the incredible beauty
that unfolds between these two characters as the Dom leads his new trainee
on an immaculate -- and surprisingly ACCURATE to the Real World of D/s
-- journey of her own Self-Discovery, into becoming a fully realized
and blossoming slave. In fact, in many ways the word "SECRETARY"
as it is used in the film and in the titles, etc, could EASILY be replaced
by the word SLAVE without changing the significance, meaning, or story
in the slightest. It is almost as if the writer of the novel /
screenplay knew full well that a beautiful story of D/s could be at
last delivered to the Mainstream by way of changing that one word, slave,
into the more acceptable term (and story context) of a Secretary.
Mr. Spader's character go about the precise methodology of training
his perfect sub was a pleasure to watch. Most memorable was a
brief moment when he places a photo of his new sub beside his office-garden
of rare orchids, implying that she too will require the kind of exacting
care and attention that his rare orchids do. Beautiful, and so
accurate as to be astonishing that this poetic moment and story has
at last made it through the barrier of fringe film into mainstream Hollywood.
every Dom or sub I know who saw the film loved it. And of course
the Vanilla Militant Feminists saw it as nothing more than sexploitation
of women -- sad really (having read several reviews by the clueless).
Nonetheless, even TIME magazine gave it a favorable review, so you know
that Mainstream America's eyes have perhaps been opened just a modicum
only part that seems at odds with the genuine reality of D/s comes towards
the end when Mr. Spader's character, for all his sheer Brilliance
in designing a course of slave training for the main character and carrying
out a system of rewards and punishments that ONLY an experienced Dom
could possibly have orchestrated, suddenly develops a MOUNTAIN of Self-Doubt. This
left every experienced D/s practitioner in the audience going,
"Wha-Huh????". It just did not compute. None of us could
think of a single Male Dom who would be that good who was also not concurrently
VERY self-aware and self-realized in their Fetish Nature. All
that said, although this one moment in the film does not really correlate
with the experience of anyone I know who saw the film, it was a small
enough deviation from an accurate portrayal so as to be harmless enough
in the overall symphony of the film. It also allowed the lead
female, the slave, to be the one to champion the flag of the 24/7 D/s
Lifestyle, which was in fact a precious moment in the story. Most
people I know simply interpreted the story choice at that point to be
the authoress' (yes, the story was written by a woman) decision to be
able to show BOTH the sub AND the Dom going through a process of Self-Discovery.
whole subject matter is handled with wonderful delicacy. As one
INIQUITY Reader wrote in, "You could take your parents to see this film....well,
open-minded parents." The film is wickedly funny at many points,
and the entire presentation was slick enough to give this movie at least
a two month run in many theatres (read: crap films are always gone before
3 weeks, and "just ok" films rarely last past 6 weeks). The universal
report from all the Fetish Community people I have talked to was that
this movie was / is Excellent and a must-see.
Suffice it to say, I suspect
Sharpie had a run of sales of the color Red to many Fetish Shops after
the movie came out.... ;-)
The 2002 INIQUITY TELEVISION FETISH FASHION AWARD goes to.....
Farscape. Hands down.
If you have not yet had
the pleasure of seeing the magnificent creations of the costume department
of this Sci-Fi Channel series, then at the least fast forward through
the DVD. REGULARLY, as in almost every single episode, we are
treated with creations in Formed Leather, PVC, and other Poly-Vinyl
that leave even Fetish Fashion designers saying, "Me Want!" (drool,
Seriously, the art of formed
leather and creative uses of PVC -- getting all those cool ripples and
shapes and more -- is taken to new heights. One can only hope
that ALL YOU FETISH FASHION DESIGNERS ARE PAYING ATTENTION.
long been noted that there is a wonderful intersection between the outfits
of characters from Sci-Fi or Fantasy (notably seen in Comic Book adaptations
such as The X-Men) and Fetish Fashion. Farscape SERIOUSLY grabs
this idea by the horns and holds on, giving us one unique-yet-entirely-plausible
creation after another. The clothing is stuff that any self-respecting
Perv would be Proud to wear at the most extravagant Fetish Ball.
Check it out.
Take one badass hottie
(Jennifer Garner, a former ballet dancer), make her incredibly lethal,
set her up as a double-agent, and then -- wouldn't you know it -- teach
her to kick ass while wearing latex dresses, high heels, and various
other Fetish accoutrement. Many of you have already seen the famous
Blue Latex Mini-Dress in the shows opening sequence and advertising
at the very least. Ms. Garner also gets to wear a heap of black
PVC or leather catsuit-like attire (we all know that the catsuit
is the ultimate female fighting outfit - heh), throughout the series.
In the Spring season finale and in the beginning of the Autumn
new season, she was tied up while wearing black PVC pants and a bra
with a fishnet crop top over that, and yes, a nice collar as well.
Yee-hah! Now where did the director put that bright red ball-gag.....
only reason Alias got 2nd place was that the outfits, while genuinely
stuff we would all see at any good Fetish Club, was all your standard
stuff. Farscape is wall-to-wall ORIGINAL designs.
Rose Weapons Inspector -- Pervs Who Protect
the Star Tribune, Dec. 1st -- thanks to INIQUITY reader Kalib)
A resignation offered by
an Iraq-bound weapons inspector has been rejected by chief U.N. inspector
Hans Blix. Harvey John McGeorge, 53, of Woodbridge, Va., offered his
resignation after reports appeared that he lacked a specialized degree
and has played a leadership role in sex clubs promoting sadomasochism
Asked if the inspector's
S&M background might offend his Muslim hosts, a U.N. spokeswoman
said all inspectors have been briefed on the local culture and religion.
McGeorge is a munitions
analyst for the U.N. Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission.
His résumé lists training in the Marine Corps and the Secret Service
but not a college degree in one of the specialized areas that the
United Nations says its prefers, such as biochemistry or chemical
"We believe that Mr. McGeorge
is a highly qualified and competent technical expert," said Ewen Buchanan,
Blix's spokesman. "We are not aware of any grounds for his resignation,
and Dr. Blix has not taken up his offer" to resign.
McGeorge had said he would
offer his resignation if the Washington Post wrote about his S&M
background. On Thursday, the Post reported that McGeorge is a cofounder
of Black Rose, a Washington-area S&M club, and a former officer
in the Leather Leadership Conference Inc.
McGeorge, a business consultant
who is president and founder of Public Safety Group Inc., a Woodbridge
consulting firm, was selected by the United Nations over inspectors
who had worked on the earlier U.N. inspection team sent to Iraq after
the end of the Persian Gulf War. Many of the earlier inspectors were
deemed to be too aggressive.
Hua Jiang, deputy spokeswoman
for U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, defended the lack of background
checks for applicants to the Inspection Commission.
"These inspectors are either
recommended by member states or they themselves just put in their
résumé," Jiang said. "And as far as their expertise is concerned,
I think that there is a check on that, but other than that, [on] their
personal lives, since there are so many inspectors coming from so
many different countries, I don't think [the commission] is available
to do that."
Kong -- Safe for now....
there is really not much public Fetish in Hong Kong, and it
is sadder still when one well meaning Fetish shop gets raided by
the police. The charges were all dropped, but now people are afraid
to throw a Fetish Party over there....
(from the shop owner)
may remember that Fetish Fashion was involved in a landmark legal
case this last year after police raided one of our play parties. Of
course we are delighted that we were found completely innocent of all
charges and can resume some sort of normal life after being under
tremendous pressure for over a year. The police have agreed to pay
around two thirds of our legal costs which still leaves a big hole
but it indicates that they accept that the prosecution was ill
We would like to enter into a dialogue with the police here in Hong
Kong about the running of play parties and would like to know the
experiences of others around the world who have done this. Would you
like to help us by giving us the answer to these questions?
1. Have you had any problems with police in
your running of play parties?
2. Have you entered into a dialogue with the
police in order to
ensure the smooth running of parties?
This info would really help us when discussing things with the police
here. We don't need to use names of course. We just want to be able
to say that other jurisdictions around the world do enter in to
discussions with BDSM groups. Hong Kong is quite influenced by the
example of other parts of the world and we want to continue to run
parties without endangering our participants. I'd rather like to stay
out of jail too!

Honest before the Judge or Get Spanked!
Client Not Legitimate Trial Prep Tactic
(Ed. -- This may be one
for "Ripley's..." -- thanks to INIQUITY Reader Tom)
In what is certain to make the legal system the butt of more jokes,
Connecticut can cross off spanking as an act covered under lawyers'
malpractice insurance policies.
Even, according to a recent decision by U.S. District Judge Robert N.
Chatigny of the District of Connecticut, if it is done in some bizarre
attempt to prepare a client to testify.
The ruling is a victory for New York-based American Home Insurance Co.,
which insured former Seymour, Conn., attorney Milo J. Altschuler during
time he allegedly took a client across his lap, lifted her skirt and
repeatedly slapped her buttocks inside a conference room in Superior
in Derby, Conn.
In 1992, Altschuler, who could not be reached for this article, pleaded
contest to two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault, and received
suspended sentence and three years of probation in connection with the
courthouse incident and a similar allegation brought against him by
According to his Nov. 6, 1991, arrest warrant application on file in
District Court in Hartford, Conn., Altschuler was preparing Leslie Cerrato
to testify in her breach-of-peace case when she began fidgeting. The
claimed Altschuler, before removing her panties and stockings, told
needed to spank her so the judge didn't think she was lying. Afterward
asked her if she would continue rubbing her hands together. Cerrato
would stop, to which Altschuler replied: "Well, I guess it worked,"
When questioned by a police detective, Altschuler denied assaulting
but admitted that he had threatened to spank her if she gave wrong answers
to questions he put to her in preparing her to testify, according to
arrest warrant application. Altschuler also acknowledged that he used
similar threats in representing more than a dozen other clients to make
"more afraid of him than they would be of the prosecutor."
Before a Statewide Grievance Committee panel, Altschuler again denied
improper sexual contact with the woman and asserted that he took the
bargain to spare his family embarrassing trial publicity. The SGC, however,
found that some form of improper personal contact had occurred and
Cerrato, who claims to continue to require counseling and anti-depressant
medication as a result of the incident, subsequently brought suit against
her former attorney. In 1999, she and Altschuler agreed to a $250,000
stipulated judgment, in which Altschuler represented that he was essentially
asset-less barring contract or tort claims he may have against his former
and present insurers.
Relationships get a Boost from New Website
the 24/7 D/s Master-slave Lifetime Contract is not EXPRESSLY discussed
as a viable alternative to marriage, it is nonetheless nice to
know that there is someone out there carrying the flag for those of
us who see traditional marriage as a limited institution which does
not cover the much wider spectrum of Long-Term Relationship Possibilities.
site is http://www.unmarried.org/homepage.html ,
better known as the "Alternatives to Marriage" project. They are
in fact soliciting stories and whatnot from anyone who is successfully involved
in a non-traditionally bonded relationship. Their attitude is
one of rather strong Open-Mindedness and an attempt to show the rest
of the world that there are MANY ways for people too be together.
The site also includes LEGAL ADVICE in regards to alternative relationships,
including defining Common Law (eye opening) and state-by-state discussions
of rights. Truly an exceptional resource in many regards.
one area truly lacking on the site is in regards to the D/s Bond, although
even this gets a minor mention on one page. It could well behoove
the entire D/s Community to get the D/s Contract noted as a completely
consentual, viable alternative for a long term relationship.
want to encourage you all to take a second and check out this most interesting
website. For those of you who take your D/s relationships
seriously, I want to strongly suggest that you write a kind and informative
letter to those at the website receiving such (they ask people to write
in about their alternative relationships -- the site is pleasantly academic
about this as a serious study). Tell these people about the reality
of any successful D/s Relationship you have ever been in. Remember
that these people, although open-minded, are probably leaning towards
the Vanilla side, so you may want to leave out the most graphic details.
Tell them about the emotional connection you have experienced as Dom
& sub, etc. I have personally already gotten the ball rolling
with a letter to them myself.
been said that S&M Rights trail about 10-15 years behind Gay &
Lesbian rights, i.e. the freedoms the Gay & Lesbian community have
achieved as of today are ones that we can expect to experience in 10-15
years. Telling the world about the beauty in D/s Relationships
is just one more way to help our community receive legitimate recognition
(and another reason why I celebrate the movie SECRETARY). I believe
the website is FINE with anonymous submissions, so Dom or sub, why not
take a few minutes to Enlighten these friendly ears? It may well
come back to us all in the best way. :-)

MILWAUKEE - A grandmother was sentenced to 30 days in jail and
years probation for running a bondage den in the basement of the home
she shared with her husband and two of her grandchildren.
Jacquess Dyer Patton-Ugan, 49, of Milwaukee, apologized in court Tuesday
for operating Madame Venus Du Plaisir's Paradise, where she charged
a fee to visit her domination dungeon. She was convicted of keeping
place of prostitution.
Men usually paid around $175 to visit with Patton-Ugan in the room.
was equipped with an array of sexual devices and bondage contraptions,
including a metal table with limb restraints, a metal gurney with
chains, a wooden horse with padding and straps, a dentist chair, a seat
that hung from the ceiling, and multiple pieces of bondage apparel and
whips, according to court records.
Patton-Ugan told Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Jeffrey A. Conen that
she was responsible for what went on in her basement, though her husband
helped put it together.
"Life is about choices, including consequences and responsibility,"
Richard Ugan, her 60-year-old retired firefighter husband, also is
charged with keeping a place of prostitution. Neighbors reported seeing
him mowing the lawn in a G-string.
One of her grandsons told police he saw some of the devices in his
grandmother's basement room and he "heard people screaming" when he
listened through air vents, according to a criminal complaint.
Patton-Ugan said the boys were not home when she entertained customers.
An undercover officer posing as a potential customer visited the home
December and was taken to the dungeon. Officers later stormed the home
and arrested the woman and her husband.
The house is in a conservative, quiet neighborhood that is home to
several retired police officers and firefighters, said Milwaukee County
Assistant District Attorney Irene Parthum.

group, state senator call for outlawing of planned `hotel sex bash'
ST. LOUIS (AP) _ A Missouri
lawmaker pledged to seek the Legislature's help in outlawing a hotel's
plans to host a sex seminar, joining a women's group in labeling the
workshop on bondage, domination and sadomasochism a disease-spreading,
In an age of preaching
abstinence, "what we have here is completely off the reservation,"
State Sen. John Loudon, R-Ballwin, told reporters on Sunday across
the street from a Lambert Airport-area Howard Johnson hotel where
"Beat Me in St. Louis" is to run Friday through Sunday.
"This is absolutely dangerous,"
added Loudon, 34, who said he will introduce a Senate resolution Monday
that, among other things, calls for the state health department and
attorney general to investigate the safety and legality of such events.
Calling the sex seminar
a "private sex bash," the Southern Baptist Convention on April 4 said
it would cancel its reservations with the Howard Johnson site in advance
of the Protestant group's June conference here.
The Web site of St. Louis
Leather & Lace, the "Beat Me in St. Louis" promoter, said the
group endorses and educates about "free expression of alternative
lifestyles and forms of loving," including bondage, domination and
sadomasochism, regardless of sexual orientation. Leather & Lace
also hosts a "SpanksGiving" event each fall.
During "Beat Me in St.
Louis," the Baptist Convention said, the hotel's 4,500-square-foot
conference center will be home to "Dungeon Parties," complete with
medieval torture devices, demonstrations and workshops covering caning
and whipping. The convention cited a "Beat Me in St. Louis" page on
Leather & Lace's Web site, though links to that page no longer
E-mailed interview requests
to Leather & Lace were directed to Susan Wright, a National Coalition
for Sexual Freedom Foundation spokeswoman who cast such sex conferences
as safe, legal expressions of free speech and assembly.
Critics, Wright suggested,
should lighten up, mind their own business and stop "using scare tactics
and lies to impose their beliefs on everyone else."
"Conventions exactly like
this are held every weekend in communities throughout the country.
They're your neighbors and co-workers," said Wright, whose group advises
how to stage sex seminars safely and legally.
"It's obvious sex makes
some people uncomfortable, but they should deal with that themselves.
Why should (critics) care?" she added. "What we're doing is a service
_ adults want safe-sex education. That should be allowed. There are
millions of Americans that just want more spice in their life. That's
not a bad thing."
Messages left with a manager
of the Howard Johnson's hotel were not returned Sunday.
Joey Davis, the Missouri
state head of Concerned Women for America, said Sunday that such sex
conferences "teach sadistic sexual torture for pleasure," recklessly
releasing bodily fluids that pose a health risk to hotel workers and
"Deep down inside, they
know what they're doing is wrong," Davis said during the news conference
with Loudon and some onlookers.
Howard Johnson hotels are
franchised and individually owned. A spokeswoman for the parent company,
Cendant Corp., has said it does not interfere with decisions about
guests as long as the site remains law-abiding.
It is unclear how many
rooms the Baptist Convention had booked with Howard Johnson, but convention-goers
were expected to reserve 4,000 hotel rooms citywide during the two-day
The CWA made similar claims
in February in protesting a group's staging "Vicious Valentine 5,"
which was held at a suburban Chicago Ramada hotel _ a Cendant-controlled
franchise _ after a Radisson site there withdrew as the venue.
Police said that convention
qualified as a private one held in a segregated area and protected
by First Amendment rights.
Afterward, organizers cheered
the three-day event as "another great weekend of pansexual (bondage,
domination and sadomasochism) dungeon play and outstanding workshops."
That's about it for the time
Have fun and stay safe. :-)
