These photos were taken in the once-flooded basement of Kink.com‘s Armory, with an decaying shooting gallery at one end, and Mission Creek running fenced-off at the other end. The paint is flaking off the walls and there are numerous eroded cement channels with streams running through the floor. I was told a story about Peter Acworth taking the employees on a tour down there, stating the water was safe and clean, and illustrating this point by scooping up a handful and drinking it. The last photo is from some mounts in the ceiling behind the shooting gallery where someone was tied to and had water sprayed up at them (I haven’t viewed the scene yet but I must admit I’m curious).
More shots from my tour of Kink.com‘s Armory in SF. This is from the area (previously a wall, now a long narrow room) known as the Bondage Wall. I think the photos speak for themselves as to why. The individual sets and directors have their own tools, but this area is where most of the common goods are stored when not in use.
Another round of shots from Kink.com‘s Armory, this time in the bar used for parties and Public Disgrace, the basement bathroom, and the prop storage area where some of the Fucking Machines were being stored while they were working on that studio. Fuckzilla looks pretty impressive in person, although I didn’t get to see him in action.
After a long silence, we’re back with some new photos. In January I went up to SF to see some old friends and play a show with Acre, Forked and Sutekh Hexen. My good friend Sarah B set up a private tour of the Armory in SF, now owned by Peter Acworth’s Kink.com who has turned the formerly disused building into a beautiful 4-story fetish pornography studio.
These photos are from the “dirty shower” and “clean shower” areas, as well as the Device Bondage studio. More to come soon.
