The M&S grand opening may still be a few weeks away yet, but S&M is already alive and kicking in Shanghai. On Saturday I attended SPANK! which is a new S&M fetish party hosted at Shanghai Studio. The venue is like a secret underground labyrinth with 11 small, darkly lit rooms and 4 bars, all accessible from a very nondescript entrance at the end of a lane just off Huai Hai Road.
WoAi with the SPANK! DJ who was very nice about having her picture taken with me
The place was very busy despite being open only to pre-registered guests, although there were very few people actually in costume other than the staff, which was disappointing, but perhaps everyone was afraid of being the only one in costume and so decided to play it safe. In fact, I was one of the few who actually made an effort. Although not in costume myself, I did have my sex slave for the evening wearing a red studded collar and chain which was attached to my wrist, which did seem to get a lot of approving looks from the other customers.
After the party I headed to a regular bar to meet Swiss James and Dingle and got looks of disbelief from some of the customers as I entered, still dragging my companion by collar and chain. After a few minutes, I decided it was all a bit too much for the prudish crowd (I’m talking of course about James and Dingle) and I reluctantly released my sub from her restraints for the rest of the evening.
The next SPANK! party is on October 11th for anyone who’s interested.
