07/02/15: QX Club News rocked our scariest rough trade skinhead look as London’s fetish fans flocked to the biggest fetish contest in town last weekend.
Featuring ten sizzling studs in a battle to lift the highly-coveted and très chic Mr Hoist 2015 sash, a crowd of hot hunks packed out the hallowed Vauxhall arches as a line up of dom dads, leather lovers and rubber masters took it to the wire for a nail-biting climax that had the whole place on a knife edge. Our personal fave, shy, diminutive and ‘embarrassed in general’ Spike, may not have reached the top spot, but we’ll take him home for a good bottom spanking anytime he wants. Meanwhile, a trio of Athenian-torsoed heart-throbs grabbed the audience’s attention, with the burly Mikey and Luke pipped to first place by 38 year-old Baz who, incidentally, had his first gay experience at Argos (perhaps he had a long wait for a kettle) but now has £1000 prize money in his bank account and the chance to represent the UK at Chicago’s International Mr Leather in May. Not forgetting the deserving runners-up who landed wads of cash plus vouchers from Mr Hoist 2015 sponsors, d.vote Rubber. Moving on and a special Sir Hoist award went to emcee and Mr Hoist 2014, a tearful Frankie, for services to the LGBT community. Congratulations to brand new Mr Hoist, Baz, we hope you have a fantastic year!
