Research Hits a New High Thanks to Northbound Leather
Every year Northbound Leather in Toronto puts on an incredible gathering that attracts a veritable cornucopia of fetishists from all over the world. Every year they give the event a different theme and last year’s amazing show was called ‘Vanilla?’.
So what was ‘Vanilla?’ all about? And why the question mark?
Here’s what the dictionary has to say about vanilla. “A BDSM term meaning anything or anyone non-kinky i.e. sex excluding all forms of deviancy such as sadomasochism, bondage, or discipline.” The 2010 show was a way to show how the line between normal and kink is blurring and how BDSM and kink have infiltrated mainstream film, television and commercials. And much of the teaching was being done through highlighting the clothing of Northbound Leather.
