The Maw made an appearance at Figment 2015, on Governor’s Island.
Our own video coming soon. Meanwhile look for us at about 1:20 into this one:
Update March 2015 with video interview.
For many in the fetish world The Montreal Fetish Weekend is the traditional end of summer, a 4 day event where attendees from all over the world take to the streets to flaunt and model their finest of fetish attire.
So it was there that I went, slave and assistant in tow (literally) to debut “The Maw”: over 40 yards of luscious black latex draped, tucked and manipulated, creating a combination art piece, social experiment and—for me personally—a bizarre rubber session of my dreams.
The dictionary defines the word Maw as “The mouth, throat, or gullet of an animal, especially a carnivorous mammal; a cavernous opening; a symbolic or theoretical center of a voracious hunger or appetite of any kind; the stomach, especially that of an animal.”
The name was more than appropriate, as for one month I was consumed by The Maw…toiling by day and dreaming of it by night. I have mulled over this bizarre rubber creation for some time, waiting the right stage for its debut.
Once we arrived at the hotel, the plan was to always be in the maw, attached and rubbery, as we let the mood of the beast flow through us. Much of the time was spent in the hotel documenting our process in videos and stills. testing its and our limits and enjoying the suite’s spacious bathroom (where we discovered, amongst over things, that three people in a maw can fit into a shower. However, it is impossible to move.)
The Maw had moods of its own. The first night we positioned ourselves in the hotel lobby, motionless and silent for 3 hours, watching the hotel guests’ reactions, which ranged from disbelief to studied cool. As we proceeded through the streets, photos were taken and questions asked and The Maw received applause and a standing ovation.
In the pool we spread out amongst the colorful balloons, floating like an oil slick on the Maw’s inflated bumps and curves. At the club we danced and encircled and consumed surprised guests in our rubbery clutches.
Since returning home a gallery has expressed interest in exhibiting The Maw, and we plan to take it for a stroll down 5th Avenue at rush hour, just to create a scene (and photos).
Having a balloon fetish may have enhanced the experience of my June Fetish Retinue for some. But no fetish was necessary.
Loving colour and latex as I do, I have always fantasized about a room full of balloons: a sea of shiny, colourful, latex orbs through which I could walk in my rubber ensembles.
A special thanks to Joe for providing hundreds of balloons and supervising my team of latex enthusiasts in blowing them all up. It was an evening that shall not be repeated and I’m so delighted to have balloon fetish photos!
I was one of the evening’s hosts. Lots of visual candy, and at evening’s end feathers covered the floor.

Thursday night at the boutique we celebrated my twentieth anniversary as “the Grand Dame of Latex”. Champagne flowed, old friends appeared, and lube was liberally applied.
Friend and fetish model Jade Vixen was an instant hit in several of my new dresses and a halter top & short tight skirt. Alexis looked fabulous in the Baby Doll dress. Mr. Mahj (the cat) was particularly sociable.
Thank you to friends old and new who came to show support and have a little fun. Special thanks to glenar for once again serving as bartender and entertaining bon vivant, and to my main latex tech, Persephone, who—among many other things—baked an amazing display of delicious cupcakes.
For more information on our Twenty Year Celebration, read the press release.
We celebrated the holiday season with a human Christmas tree, some masterful suspension bondage by Master Vito, plenty of season’s beatings and candy canings, and lots of latex, including a bouncing inflatable straight jacket. (WebCzar apologizes for not posting these sooner!)
The Fetish Retinue will return as the Grand Finale for the 2014 New York Fetish Marathon. Join us June 1 at Bedlam. More info here.
This year for birthday festivities I and latex lovely Alexis held court At Kingston Hall—a beautiful huge space with fireplaces and a wicked back room. It was an intimate affaire with good friends, fetishists, fabulous outfits, presents, jewels, and lots of champagne. Master Vito checked out the space for suspension rigs and all agreed that it was the perfect place for my upcoming Christmas Fetish Retinue party. A lovely start to a fabulous season!
