• The night Manila got sexy

    0

    Did you feel something in the air last Saturday night, March 5? Some stirrings in your loins? Butterflies in your stomach? A few extra thumps in your heart? Did you want to propose marriage? Did you think of lost love? Did you think of the lover you wish you had in your bed (or the one that already is, you lucky little fortune cookie)?

    Maybe it’s because Manila got extra sexy. In the afternoon, two of my friends got married in a Doctor Who themed ceremony. When the vows got personalized she told him—when something good happens, he’s the first person she wants to tell. When she’s having a bad day, he is the one she wants to hug. Awww.

    The couple was nervous and excited but obviously just so happy to start the rest of their adventure.

    After the wedding, I headed off to “Wordello,” an event inspired by the poetry brothel in New York. Instead of hiring ladies and gentlemen to tickle you in the flesh whichever way you fancy, spoken word artists, writers, and poets are “hired” to read and perform literature.

    Poets from the exciting new group Deus Sex Machina to my favorite RayVi Sunico to yours truly performed selected original sexy works at the Green Sun Gallery, cleverly art directed to look like an elegant French brothel. The large space was covered with carpets and an assortment of seats—floor cushions, chairs and couches surrounded the stage area. There was a bar and tents and cages, and attractions apart from the readings like body calligraphy demonstration, and a kinbaku.

    Kinbaku, or the Japanese art of bondage, by Sensei Shinobi was saved for the finale—by the end of the evening, Shinobi’s model was elegantly tied up in a rope and attached to a suspension rig on a stage. Much to the delight of the literati.

    Wordello was a fundraiser set up by Chichi Lizot and the Likhaan Creative Writing Foundation to benefit the UP Creative Writing MA scholars and the UP Institute of Creative Writing. The space was huge and it was full—the performances were great, the turnout was excellent, and the audience was incredibly responsive.

    I couldn’t be in two places at once but over at A Space, Dopeloco had its second performance of the “Eyes Wide Shut Burlesque”—which featured bondage, sexy acrobatics and movement. Guests were asked to show up in semi-formal attire and don masks to enter.

    I think that will be the one and only wedding for my dear friends A and M but there was talk of a possible Wordello 2 next year. The Eye Wide Shut Burlesque will have its third show on April 2 at A Space. GIRL
