Perhaps a well-timed event to raise a few funds for Japan?

Our thoughts exactly! I forgot to mention:

To be serious for once, please think about donating to the International Red Cross Japan appeal... seeing as we're having a Tokyo-theme party this seems the right thing to do. I hereby pledge to donate 1% of any profit made from this party to the appeal. Please see http://www.ifrc.org/en/get-involved/donate/donation-japan/?DisasterPageID=51110.
We will also have a collection tin or two at the event itself, kindly organised by Spank friend Sonya.

1%?

For reals? How much is that going to be, a couple of bucks?

Way to go trading off people's desire to help out the Japanese victims of the earthquake and tsunami, without actually having to do anything.

If you'd said $1 or $2 from every ticket sold, we might entertain that this is possibly going to be something in the order of $200. But 1% of profits? How much profit are you really going to make off that ticket price, and then you get 9% and who is going to hold you accountable to tip the pifflingly small amount of money you "pleedged" into the relief appeal?

You disgust me.

Wow... how can I disgust you when you don't even know me? It's easy to hide behind your PC and send out anonymous hatemail (as you've done to me before), so maybe you should post a photo of yourself so the community knows who you are. Most people know who I am and what I look like from Facebook etc, and it would be interesting to meet you face to face and see if you say the same things about me. No, you don't know that I will actually make that donation, but I will because I'm a decent person... my friends know that. But you don't, because you don't know me.

It's not really hate mail, it an opinion that you don't agree with. Whilst your timing is not perfect (and probably the events in Japan hadn't occurred when the idea was conceived), both Skwerlie and Rolinator make a good point about is being tasteless. And really, 1% is a pretty poor "pledge".

How is it not tasteless to fetishise an ethnicity in the manner that the poster does, or it ok because she has "white face".

As for Rolinator being afraid of saying the things he does online to your face? Yeah..I'm pretty sure that's not going to be a problem for him should you two ever meet.

Of course this theme was planned before the events in Japan... do you think events like this are organised at the last minute? And isn't the whole point of fetish that most fetishes are considered 'tasteless' by vanilla folk?
And I didn't have to make a pledge at all.. but obviously with people like you two, I'm never going to win whatever I say. So I think I'll make this my last post on the subject 'cos I can't be bothered wasting my time on this any more... so over and out you happy people you!!

Firstly, if you had read what I said, I suggested that you wouldn't have planned an event such as this post recent events in Japan, so you can get off your high horse about that one.

Secondly, you come out guns blazing when people question your event marketing images and ideas and throw out wild accusations. For example, I seem to recall you suggesting that Rolinator was a (secret) nazi sympathiser - I think not, his partner is Jewish. Perhaps you need to stop hiding behind your shoulder chip and accept that people will want to enter into a dialogue with you when you post about your events.

No, I don't think that the "whole point of fetish that most fetishes are considered 'tasteless' by vanilla folk". Is suppose I shouldn't have relied on you reading and actually understanding what I said. Let me explain what I meant by tasteless. I meant that it's not acceptable to a lot of people to embrace extreme visual interpretation of another culture. Do you recall the furor that "Hey, Hey" caused because of the black face act? How is generecising a the image of a "Japanese" woman into pseudo geisha any different? Is she a bad geisha, a naughty geisha?

Furthermore, you don't help yourself by using such a patronising expression as "vanilla folk". Not everyone is a two dimensional as you seem to think. For example, it is my understanding that far more heterosexual couples engage in anal sex than do homosexual men. One could easily describe anal penetration as a fetish if they prescribed to your statement, but is it really?

And spanking, a lot of couples engage in this act. It's joked about in the media, it's a pretty non-marginalised act, so should it have its fetish medal ripped off? (You might have to change the name of your event.)

No, you didn't have to make the pledge at all...to be honest though, I'm not sure why you even bothered. It's not as though you then seemed more humanistic or engaging when you suddenly thought of it. Why don't you get more petulant and increase the percentage?

It's also not about winning, it's about healthy, open discussion in a public space on a topic that, unless you're completely backwards, you would realise is going to get people's attention..but then isn't that the point of a fetish event?

It's unfortunate that you've decided that you don't want to waste any more time when people disagree with you, but from my experience, it's what you do.

Feedback Following the Party

Muffiedspank,

I would like to thank you for the excellent organisation of a remarkable dress up party with some quality music, resulting in a very enjoyable night, far from the usual unpleasant tumult from typical nightclubs.

Further to the former posts, I would like to add that the good organisation, the rules that were clearly established prior to the party and a respectful attitude of the crowd, resulted in a very (self-)controlled event. This event is really only a giant dress up party. The bondage aspects is so low that anyone with an open mind would not be concerned. I do not practice bondage, however, I have not been concerned by any content of this party. The crowd's attitude was perfect, without any signs of uncontrolled situation, excessive alcohol consumption or excessive testosterone that are so common in most of the nightclubs from Northbridge. This resulted in a fun, pleasant, safe and stress-free night, which is rare for an event of this size.

Thank you again for the exemplary organisation.

Fred
(It was my first Spank party)

Re: Feedback Following the Party

hi fred,

thank you very much for your positive comments... i think it was our best spank ever! and for the doubters who didn't think i'd actually fulfill my promise of donating to the japan appeal, i got a photo of my putting 50 bucks into the tin, which will eventually appear on facebook & the website.

as you say, we keep the bdsm aspect of spank to one side, as bdsm is only one aspect of fetish, not the whole caboodle as some people think. we prefer to emphasise the kinky dressup part of it, which includes role play and entertainment.

yes, it was an amazingly lovely atmosphere, not one single person drunk or 'nasty' on drugs... just lots of happy faces : )

so glad you enjoyed it,
all the best,
muffie
