It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but the incidence of infidelity is rising in Australia. Be it part of mainstream culture becoming more sex obsessed (I don’t believe this is the case) or people are just getting horny from something in the water isn’t really the issue. The point is that monogamous relationships and marriages clearly aren’t working as a long term construct.
Predominantly there is the psychological component at play here. The fact is that everyone is a unique individual snowflake so we can basically break them down into a limited number of psychological typings, just like an emo. When it comes to experiencing love, John Lee1 came up with six basic forms of love back in the 70s when that was all that was on anyone’s mind. It’s important to actually realise that there are different ways of loving someone romantically. We’re not talking about loving in a filial, platonic or bromantic way. Actual romance where it’s not creepy to have sex with. These different styles of love are after different things and are often grossly incompatible – he’s not the right guy, she’s just not that into, it’s not you it’s me. This is all directly from incompatibilities people experience between different styles of love.
Another part of this definitely comes down to biology. Till death do us part isn’t so hard when you’re meant to go off in battle and possibly die in your late teens/early 20s, and your life expectancy is barely 40. With the life spans of our generation having doubled over what they were a century ago, we have alot more time to grow bored with things, and we are nothing if not creatures of acclimatization. After all, it took less than a month for AshleyMadison, a website for people who are specifically looking to have a secret affair, to achieve 300,000 signups when it launched in Australia, well over a third of these were women2.
So what’s my point?

For those of you that are more into the fetish end of Gawth culture, and locatedi n Melbourne, you’re probably already aware of Abode, and the gawfikly inclined nights it runs Neo and Sinthetic.
And you’re probably aware of how unfair it is that we see all these awesome clubs in movies like Preaching to the Perverted where they’ve got people suspended by their back flab in mid-air, or someone’s applying powertools to their crotch for the amusement of everyone else…
Well, at least the powertools to the crotch part is happening, courtesy of Neo Grind. It’s also featuring live acts, and if you’re one of the lucky people with access to the members area, probably live play.
For backflab suspension, there are places in Northcote.
Nestled in Abode in the heart of StKilda, it’s easy to get to, easy to get away from, and located a short walk to a mass of drug dealers and quality restaurants.
Tickers are $25 (possible more at the door) and available from http://www.showclix.com/event/34165/

Every 4th Friday at ABODE, 374 St.Kilda.rd, St Kilda, the club offers a variety of activities for the curious, the regulars, and the members. Originally starting upstairs in what was the members only area, it has since expanded and moved downstairs, allowing for a larger number of people, and a wider variety of displays.
Displays, you ask? (more…)Newer Posts »
