So, we all know that Fridays and Saturdays there are plenty of things to do out there. What is not so common is to find kinky activities to do on a Sunday. Last week I attended London Fetish Fair.
It is a fetish market held near Moorgate once a month. It starts at noon with many stalls selling all sorts of apparel and tools (crops, canes, nipple clamps – you name it). After six a party starts, which includes performances. Last Sunday we say a suspension of two women together using complex machinery, and a burlesque by VJ Spankie. The venue is a sort of cave (in French), which makes it look very dungeony. And one room contained very nice machinery that was at the public’s disposal. Indeed, it was used. It was your normal Saturday night party, as the atmosphere was chilled. People were relaxed and quite open. There was also not that feeling that if you left early you would miss the most interesting part, as there were many parts to the day. Entry before six (when the party started) meant no code was required, which made for an interesting mix and I think contributed to the general relaxed atmosphere.
Though it was my first time there, I can say I really enjoyed it and would certainly go again.
This weekend I thought I’d go for something much more traditionally British. I was invited to a supper club‘s high tea (which was actually afternoon tea). For those of you not familiar with it, it looks something like this:
It includes one or several types of teas and sandwiches, cupcakes, scones, cakes, pastries, etc. (not necessarily all of the above). It’s quite a formal occasion, though in non-posh circles some silliness soon ensues. I find it’s a great way to while away the afternoon in nice company, tasting different food and teas. The only problem I can find is the high sugar content. The next time I go to one I will perhaps choose one with more sandwiches than high-sugar cupcakes!
