Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

It’s not unusual to see a fetish party in Ybor City. It is rather unusual to see two of them, in separate locations, on the same night.

But that was the case last night: Both The Masquerade and Circus Bar (formerly Club Czar; I was unaware of the changeover) were crawling with latex-clad, chain-bedecked freakie-deakies, and there was plenty of spillover all over 7th Avenue.

It was quite the sight. It served as a perception corrective: As much as you might think some of the outfits on display in Ybor are over the edge, seeing a Gimp lookalike strolling down the street makes you realize how tame everyone else really is.

I did not attend either party. They were both open to the public, and I was handed a free drink card for the Masquerade show while I was killing time in the little hole-in-the-wall karaoke bar next door. But it was a little too out there for me last night, and anyway I wasn’t dressed for it (even though I was wearing mostly black). I likely wouldn’t have been able to take any pictures, which would have been the main reason for indulging. Maybe next time.

Two fetish parties in one night, only a couple of blocks apart? Must have been the Hurricane Jeanne-induced drop in barometric pressure…
