Event: Le Carnaval Fetish
The event was last night (August 3rd), but the story really starts the night before. But, I don't want to bore you with the details on how I showed up to the venue on the wrong day all ready for a fetish suspension show. So, we'll just skip to yesterday. =)

A couple days ago, I received a text from my friend Yun Cee about some fetish party that she was attending in my neighborhood and wanted to know if we could meet up. The party was called Le Carnaval Fetish, but that's about all I knew. On to Google!

First hit, their MySpace page. I immediately knew who was throwing the party, my old friend Miguel. He has thrown a lot of suspension, blood play, and fetish parties in the city, and are always a good time. Also, as an added bonus, my friend Johanna Constantine was DJ'ing (She plays seriously hardcore industrial). So, I had to go check out his event, especially since it was only 5 blocks down the street from my apartment.

I showed up sometime around midnight, and was greeted at the door by a group of friendly people that led me to the basement. The first thing I thought of when I walked in was, "wow... what an amazing venue!". The basement of the China1 club is beautiful and laid out really well. Small nooks, pillars, non-square rooms; great for privacy and still have two large areas for dancing and performances. The oriental theme just made it over-the-top. I have to give it to Miguel on this one. I've walked by this place for the last 6 years, and even had dinner upstairs in it, and never even knew this magnificent basement even existed!

I think I showed up at the perfect time. The place was packed, there didn't seem to be much LES B&T action, and the music was strong. Off to the side in the main room, there was some interesting body painting going on. I couldn't really tell whom the artist was intended to be, but once there was a half-naked woman that wanted her top painted, there were all kinds of guys volunteering to help out. Especially a group of Japanese guys that look like they accidentally stumbled into something way over their head, but were having a great time.

Over by the bar, good ol' Kevin Carpet was all rolled up at the foot of the bar and and a slue of people stomping on him while ordering their drinks. More girls than guys, and more girls with less clothing than more. So, I think he had a good night. I never saw him out of the carpet that night, so I didn't really have a chance to talk with him.

I ordered my first drink, and then the music suddenly changed, and the chatter throughout the place died down. Apparently a show was about to start. I'm not really sure how to best describe the garb of the two women on stage, but "sexy ninja vampire geisha" would probably sum it up best. I saw a rigging hanging from behind the curtain, and Miguel was standing off to the side with a rope in his hand. Suspension time?

There were two main performers on the stage, the girl that was naked and to be tied up, and the non naked one that would be doing the tying up. They proceeded to to a rope bondage performance that demonstrated the clothes-on girls rope capabilities. I was kind of interested to see the final product, and was pretty impressed with how beautiful it was.

When the girl was lowered down, she was placed on a table and then covered in whip cream and fruit (?!). Miguel then handed me some strawberries and with a huge smile, pointed betwe
