Fetish Favourites

Fetish Favourites

Fetish Week is almost here and we can almost smell the heady scent of Crisco, boot polish and man musk lingering in the air already. We’re sure you’re all pre-lubed and ready to go, but don’t forget that this city also has all manner of sleazy, sexy exploits to keep you elbow deep in naughty fun all year. To paraphrase one of the only non-pornographic films we own, here’s a few of our favourite filthy things.

OUT OF THE  BOX

OUT OF THE BOX

Shangela is one of RuPaul’s Drag Race’s most iconic personalities. One of the greatest moments in the show’s history was when she burst out of a box at the beginning of Season Four as a repeat contestant, after effortlessly annoying the shit out of everyone in season three.   Often dismissed as a ‘loudmouth’ and ‘unpolished’, underneath the sass, the mug, the bag, the moves and the hair is an extremely talented and perceptive queen. James Egan caught up with her before she hit London to judge G-A-Y Porn Idol to get a better idea of who Miss Laquifah Wadley really is. What followed was both hilarious and insightful.
