2nd Annual December Shibari Demo at the HoleChicago, IL -- Last night my boy Derek and I performed a two part Shibari demonstration for the Chicago Hellfire Club's Bar Night at the Hole in the basement of the Jackhammer. This was the second time we've done a demo for the CHC as part of a Bar Night at the Hole.

Last December we demonstrated the dynamic suspension rigging we would later showcase at the House of Blues in Chicago during the IML XXX Victory Party. That particular demo was an excellent example of performance rigging. The rope bondage becomes spectacle, geared more for theater than an actual scene.

This year we wanted to focus on the use of Shibari to enhance actual fetish/Sm play. Specifically, we hoped to demonstrate several key concepts: first, the manner in which rope bondage can be used to frame a scene; second, how the rope can serve as a physical conduit connecting the players within a scene; third, exhibit the simplicity of eastern style rope bondage techniques in expediting the rigging process; and finally, display the versatility afforded by the application of these techniques.

2nd Annual December Shibari Demo at the HoleTo explore these concepts, we broke the demo into two parts. The first part, I rigged the boy in a supine horizontal full suspension with his legs held in a spread position (photo above). I've posted a set of thirty photographs taken during this part of the demo in the gallery entitled 2008 CHC Bar Night at the Hole (Part I). I'm sure that if you're reading my posts you can imagine a wide variety of scenes this particular rigging might facilitate. The rigging itself was a lot of fun to perform because I was really doing it on the fly with a bunch of interaction with the audience. For the second part of the demo, I rigged the boy into a partial suspension and we engaged in some heavy impact play (photo left). You can find a full set of photographs from this part of the demo in the gallery entitled 2008 CHC Bar Night at the Hole (Part II). Those of you that know us will understand why I admit this was our favorite part of the demo after you see the photos. Doug did a great job capturing the photos for both galleries.

Derek and I both want to thank Rob and the crew at the Hole for hosting the CHC Bar Night, providing us with a great space to present and keeping us well imbibed through the end of the night. We also want to thank the Chicago Hellfire Club for inviting us in to perform the demo; we truly enjoy sharing what we do with our likeminded brothers and sisters. And, of course, we want to thank everyone that braved the cold weather to come out and let us entertain them.
