'The Black Party is one of the most well-known fetish parties in the world, with boundary-pushing fetish performances delighting a notoriously game crowd.'
Although well known, when New York artist and photographer Hans Fahrmeyer recently sent on along a new series of images, I thought at first it read 'Block' party. I am still a bit naive to all things fetish related, although fascinated by the subject. Living in a small country town, I have been to a few block parties but have yet to squeeze into black leather for a wild weekend in New York. Maybe one day....
When I asked Hans for a bit of info, he sent on a link to help set me straight. Saint at Large is Celebrating 30 Years Since the Closing of The Saint Nightclub with Rites XXXIX: The Black Party, PIGTOPIA. If the title doesn't fill in the blanks, my googling informed me that the 39th edition promises high-flying aerial sex stunts, “strange” performances and an endless supply of leather.
'The Black Party in NYC is one of the best things to do in spring, and over 5,000 of the city’s most daring men will bring their wildest, skimpiest, and kinkiest looks. The Black Party is one of the most well-known fetish parties in the world, with boundary-pushing fetish performances delighting a notoriously game crowd. Faithful attendees (in previous years more than 5,000 men—and some adventurous women—attended) stick to a hush-hush mentality. Count on this year's "Pigtopia: I Want to Break Free" edition to be one of the most deliciously filthy Rites ever.'
This years Black Party begins Saturday night and runs though Sunday afternoon. If you want to know more details, or just learn more about the event, check out Saint At Large HERE:
