Erik von Gutenberg recommends the Fetish Gala in Scranton.
I had the pleasure of attending Northeastern PA’s first fetish gala, an event not seen in my area until now. This event was arranged and hosted by International Dominatrix and Fetish Model of over 17 years, Domina Vendela Zane ‘The WhipGirl’ of Women of Discipline Studios and The Segreto Dello Zane BDSM B & B, located here in Scranton, PA.
I was seriously contemplating the turn out, as I mentioned our area is now just being introduced to this type of elaborate lifestyle celebration of an event such as this. I was wonderfully surprised. With over 80 people turning out for the first event, and with vendors selling local wares such as hot sauces, tattoo artists, fetish photographers, local bands, and more. Ms. Zane put together quite a groundbreaking event.
The events main entertainment was the one and only World Record Holder, Pete Tino, The Human Floor. Ms. Zane told Me that every Gala has a charity performance and all proceeds from the performance go directly to a non-profit local organization. This Gala’s charity was Modified K9 of Northeastern, PA. This is a charity that helps rescue primarily ‘bull breed’ dogs (pit bulls from fights, etc) rehibilitates them, and finds them loving families. I was impressed. Pete Tino was stapled (yes stapled to his body) over $300 in under 45 minutes. I don’t know what was more fun, Pete’s fun and playful stage talk, the bed of nails he laid on, the darts being thrown at him, or all of the lovely pin up models who got to assist him in his plight!
Celebrity fetish photographers Larry Brady and Angel Morales were in the house, selling some amazing artwork in the vendor area. Established Washington, DC DJ’s HARDWARE EST and London E. Shadows were spinning some great goth/industrial/ambient music to dance to. I was delighted to enjoy some great food prepared and catered by Vendela Zane’s B & B. Her ‘Marquis De Sade Lasagna’ was amazing and I love spicy food. I was also lucky enough to get My portion directly from (or served on) The Mistress Herself. A ‘Human Buffet’ was part of the festivities. Sexy and delicious!
I was very happy to have learned and attended this event, and I was told there will be more. The event site is http://www.blasphemypa.yolasite.com/ . I suggest checking it out for more photographs of the fun. Scranton, Pennsylvania will never be the same since Domina Vendela Zane and her staff have taken root here. I’m looking forward to more of Her events. (and more great food!)
