I organised a private film screening of John Waters' 'A Dirty Shame' for last night, at the Everyman cinema in Hampstead. Part of it was for my sister and B.I.L to meet/see some of my friends, and also just to watch the Pope of Trash in fine form.
The screening was pretty cool, I think most people had a good time and enjoyed the film and disgustingly overpriced canapes.
Everyone was particularly excited to learn about the various fetishes outlined during the film, which included (and these are only the tame ones):
The Upper-Decker (the practice of defecating in the tank of a toilet rather than the proper receptacle bowl, causing a prolonged offending odour from the unseen excreta.)
Frottage (the sexual rubbing up on unspecting citizens!)
Sploshing (an 'English' fetish which usually includes having food, or other slimy wet substances thrown over one)
Bearism (we've all heard of this one, surely! Hairy, chubby, masculine gay men who refer to themselves as bears.... I sometimes go the otter look, mostly for my friends amusement.)
But there was one fetish mentioned that wasn't explained and none of us had ever heard of... which was 'blossoming' or 'blossomed'.
Can anyone enlighten us please?
