Worldwide: Thrillist author Charyn Pheuffer released this interesting theory that Fifty Shades did not create a BDSM revolution. I tend to disagree. She brings up the point that most people already knew about BDSM before the books and films, however I personally think it has 100% opened up the door for a conversation on it. What do you think?
Japan: Here’s a fun read on Japanese fetish clubs. I’ve heard they are much more elaborate there in terms of “setting the scene” so to speak. Definitely some good inspiration!
anniebear and I attended the Auckland Fetish ball this past weekend and were not disappointed. We’ll have a full recap for you next week but it was a great event with festive costumes and performances. The scene in Auckland is far less fragmented as compared to LA which offered a very intimate party. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this week’s review on the Armory haunted house. We also have a new segment on floggers in our buying guide.

I’ve seen some pretty well themed rooms in the states. Threshold in LA for example has an awesome medical room and classroom. Japan seems to take it a step further with eh addition of the “extras” (ladies) in the scenes, etc. If it’s all consensual and they are getting paid, who cares! Sounds fun lol
