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!

This chastity device is a work of wearable art

Look closely at the display stand for this chastity device made by Steelwerks Extreme. “Clive & Johnny” it says.


This chastity device — a work of functional art, really — belongs to Clive Barker, the author, visual artist and film director, and his partner, Johnny.

I’m told that these guys, who are in a long-term, committed relationship, are also kinky and proud of it. Just check Clive Barker out on his Tumblr and Deviant Art pages, to see evidence of this.

We will learn more about this piece in an upcoming, in-depth interview with Christopher from Steelwerks Extreme, which will appear soon right here on Metalbond.
