Some recent articles in the news featuring lockup and lockdown

I’ve blogged about the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment a number of times before. For those who are not familiar, it was a prison role-play “experiment” conducted back in the 1970s with male college students, who were divided into groups of guards and prisoners. The experiment quickly went off the rails and had to be ended early. The guards got too sadistic and the prisoners too rebellious. There is tons of literature about this in psychology textbooks and at least one movie. This article revisiting the experiment appeared in today’s New York Times and caught my eye — especially the picture! The gist of the article is that the academic psychological community would not allow such an experiment to be conducted again today. And this is a shame, because I think re-doing the experiment again — with a better facility and better planning — would be fucking hot! I wish someone would volunteer to write a story based on this, for the Metalbond Prison Library! Reach out to me if you are interested.

In other recent news, Squirm of Rubberzone passed along this link to a story about a man in Washington state who broke into an escape room and then called 911 when he could not get out! What do you guys think of the escape room craze? Who among us has participated? Again I think this would make a great story for the Prison Library!

Picture: Adam Rippon in a leather harness

One of the surest ways to draw lots of attention to one’s self is to wear something outrageous to the Oscars. Yesterday on the Red Carpet, Adam Rippon delivered!

 

The openly gay U.S. Olympic bronze medal winning figure skater wore a black leather harness to the Academy Awards! Fucking hot if you ask me! I can’t tell if this means Adam is expressing an interest in leather/BDSM, or perhaps it is more of a fashion statement. I suspect it’s probably more of the latter. In keeping with the spirit of the Oscars, it’s high-fashion — “a Moschino look by from Jeremy Scott,” according to this article on the Vogue magazine website.

Whether Adam is kinky or not, I still think he is fabulous. I grew up watching the Olympics but never, ever saw anyone out and proud — until this year, thanks to him and openly gay U.S. Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy.

Now that Adam has worn leather, I would very much like to see Gus in a leather harness — hopefully one from Mr S!
