No, I was privy to a most different kind of movement on 11th October 2014 when Rubber Revolution reared its anarchic head to offer a new latex-only event to the gummi glitterati of the world. A rubbery hand-chosen selection of choice perves were invited along to Murder Mile Studios in East London to sample the choice sweetmeats this rebellious revelry had to offer.
At this very classy locale the focus of the evening was dedicated to rubber adornment, fun and fetish play, where the essential and significant elements of this new event are that you must be in full rubber. And, amazingly, with a bountifully-equipped dungeon, BDSM and fetish play to the nth degree of consummation is actively encouraged with no worry of a disapproving bouncer tapping you on the shoulder.
So, to kick off the evening a smorgasbord of nibbles and prosecco served by a Hannibal-hooded maitre d was made for a cordial, welcoming touch downstairs in the Murder Mile bar, where as advertised it was a relaxed Bring Your Own Drinks policy. Situated next to this, in an annexed studio, Rubber Bandit – one of the most talented photographic artists on the scene – spent the night capturing image upon image of pervy portraiture.
During the course of the evening a plethora of cheeky choons were spun, playing homage to alternative greats such as Kraftwerk and Joy Division. To begin with the music was at conversation level, but as the party started pumping the volume went all the way to eleven with some pretty dirty moves going down on the dancefloor: a perfect compromise I felt.
Upstairs depravity reigned with a dreamscape of dungeon equipment. Here the rope suspension points were put to good use by Artifex_DK, in from Copenhagen, and his glamorous rope bunny Miss Olympia, both demonstrating Japanese Shibari par excellence with some of the most elegant and exquisite tying and suspension I have seen in a long time.
For me personally, I have to say the most deliciously naughty highlights were to be had in the medical room overseen by Miss Velour and partner Vulcanised. Their NnP apparatus had the air of a nutty contraption direct from the set of Carry on Screaming complete with knobs, levers and big shiny silver gas canisters. I was honestly hoping OddBod didn't make an appearance.
Think the best legal high possible teamed with the most intense orgasmic experience and you’re still only part way there. Can you tell I’m still reeling from the experience?
Ultimately then, Rubber Revolution's coup d'etat is set to be a rousingly radical one if their inception is anything to go by. Vive la revolution, baby!
