Full Fetish Jacket

A group of white-clad rapists, one very quick-witted, hang around the corner. Dr. Strangelove is present. Female twins block your path in the hallway on the way to the restroom. But — good news — Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman won’t be having uncomfortable sex with each other on the dance floor, but that vibe, between another man and woman, might be there. Saturday, Club X-It (219 N. 21st Ave., Hollywood) abounds in Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic visions when South Florida’s adult-party team Electrolust brings us its annual Kubrick tribute party: “A Clockwork Orgy.” Other films to note for inspiration — on what to wear, not how to act (in some cases) — include Spartacus, Lolita, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining (“Heeere’s Johnny!” wearing fetish gear), and Full Metal Jacket. Kubrick was a man who paid meticulous attention to his art, and you can too. He was obsessed with man’s inhumanity to man — and perhaps a fetish party is exactly the opposite of that conflict — but pain, if it’s a form of fun for those involved, is so allowed. Fetishism, after all, is about giving people all their people desires. Starting at 9 p.m., goth, industrial, and hardcore tunes will be found blasting off the main stage while drum ’n’ bass, electro, house — dubstep — will fill the air near the area called Electrolust’s Dungeon Bass. Throughout the night, performance art and burlesque will be performed in multiple rooms. Fetish-adoring vendors, God bless them, will be present. Sorry, younglings, even at a fetish party, you must be 21 to drink, but, yeah, you kids over 18 are allowed and wanted. Tickets cost $10 for presale, $20 at the door; visit electrolusthollywood1.eventbrite.com to buy them.
