Nobody expects the Inquisition – nor to win the Sadistique contest

Nobody expects the Inquisition – nor to win the Sadistique contest

Here they are! In November, the theme of Sadistique, the BDSM party held monthly in Milan since 2005, was The Inquisition – and this very mixed couple of witch and confessor is the one that best captured it among the photographed subjects, mixing fetish elements, irony and great details. Their prize are two complimentary entry tickets for the December 2nd party. …And what about you? Have you prepared your outfit to win this month?

Trying to judge Sadistique, the monthly kinky party of Milan, from its official photos, can be deceiving. Among the action, the fun, the MasterClasses and the exhibitions, very few participants find enough free time to visit the photo set and have their portrait taken. Of them, just a minority signs off the authorization to have the photos published on this website – and within this smaller subset, we select just a little selection of shots.

Having said this, here are some of the guests of the November edition of Sadistique. The winner of the contest for the best themed (and photographed) outfit will follow in a few days.

Have you learned how to use rope for Japanese bondage? Do you know how to lay it and where to knot it? Great! So now you are ready to study the remaining 90% of the art of kinbaku. You can start at Sadistique, the fantastic BDSM event to be held Sunday, December 2nd in Milan. The incomparable lecturer of this month’s MasterClass will be La Quarta Corda, one of the most prepared Italian shibari teachers. His lesson, from 4 to 5 PM, will be dedicated to kakehiki and semenawa, two key elements in his philosophy.

Kakehiki is strategy. Using force is never the best solution with bondage. Sometimes having a good kakehiki allows to bring the partner beyond their limit, to do something without making it feel like an abuse. The same strategy must be employed when we want to experiment seme, or torment, together. Semenawa (‘punishing rope’) doesn’t just mean torture. It also indicates the discovery of the weak points, fears and emotions driving the tied person, and pushing them to live them in a consensual, intimate and controlled setting in order to exit the experience stronger and purified. The key is using rope to create a relationship that goes beyond sensations and emotions. Other topics of the class will be kotobazeme (words as torture), suuchinawa (shameful rope), shikarizeme (scolding punishment) and especially ma, which is what gives whatever we do with ropes its meaning.

Free from the limits imposed by reality, BDSM comics can be a truly fascinating trip inside the wildest erotic fantasies – if done right. In fact, very often exceptionally talented artists happen to have not even the slightest idea of what they are drawing… and it shows. The artist who is going to exhibit her works at the December 2 Sadistique event in Milan, on the other hand, is totally proficient in this subject.

Radaaria has been working as a fetish illustrator and comic book artist since the Nineties, but she also is a pillar of the Italian kinky scene as the founder of Legami, the largest local online community dedicated to extreme eroticism. When she is not drawing nor managing the website, she also is an activist for alternative sexualities – and this is why making her schedule and our party dates meet literally required years of attempts. This time however she will finally be present to enjoy the party and to exhibit her works – including a spanking new creation specially created for Sadistique.

This December Sadistique will be science-fictionally amazing. In a vintage way.

Sadistique, the grand BDSM event in Milano, notoriously has a different theme every month. This is an additional game to the regular dress code: inventing a themed outfit is fun, makes for a varied ambiance and… increases the chances to win two free entry tickets for the next month if you choose to get photographed and published. But this time something odd happened.

When we announced that on December 2nd the theme would be Barbarella – Vintage sci-fi, several younger guests looked at us perplexed, confessing they had no idea what we were talking about. So let’s make amends right now: Barbarella was the protagonist of the same-name movie from the Sixties, inspired by a famous French comic. Its iconic, ironic and sexy look gave origin to the “space fashion” fad by Paco Rabanne, Pierre Cardin and André Courréges. Or, in other words, the perfect inspiration to have fun with a bizarre vintage idea of fetish joining seduction, self-irony and creativity.

Now that we are clear, we invite you to have a look at the above links and at the gallery we set up as inspiration… and then to dive in your closets and vintage markets to amaze Sadistique with your kinky fantasy!
