BARRABAS' GUIDE TO BRIGHTON 2002

BOOZING

GAY BRIGHTON

STRAIGHT BRIGHTON


BOOZING

 

SYMPTOM
FAULT
ACTION TO BE TAKEN
Drinking fails to give satisfaction & taste. Shirt front is wet. Mouth not open while drinking OR glass being applied to wrong part of face. Buy another pint and practice in front of mirror. Continue with as many pints as necessary until drinking technique is perfect.
Drinking fails to give satisfaction & taste. Drink is unusually pale and clear. Glass is empty. Find someone who will buy you another pint.
Feet cold and wet. Glass being held at incorrect angle. Turn the glass the other way up so that the open end is toward the ceiling.
Feet warm and wet. Incorrect bladder control. Go and stand next to the nearest dog. After a while complain to the dog's owner about its lack of housetraining. Demand a pint as compensation.
Bar blurred. You are looking through the bottom of an empty glass. Find someone who will buy you a pint.
Bar swaying. Air turbulence unusually high, may be due to darts match. Insert broom handle down back of jacket.
Bar moving. You are being carried out. Find out if you're being taken to another pub. If not, complain loudly that you're being hijacked by the Salvation Army.
You notice that the wall opposite is covered in ceiling tiles and has fluoruescent strip lighting on it. You have fallen over backwards. If glass is full and no-one is standing on your drinking arm, stay put.
Everything has gone dim and you have a mouth full of broken teeth and dog-ends. You have fallen over forwards. As for falling over backwards.
Everything has gone dark. Pub has closed. Panic. Go to nightclub. (see guides below)
You wake up to find bed cold hard and wet. Somebody has stolen your bedroom ceiling. You have spent the night in the gutter. Again. Check your watch - if you still own one - to see if it's opening time yet. If not, treat yourself to a lie-in.

GAY BRIGHTON


Much of the Brighton gay scene is concentrated in the Kemptown area of Brighton, the focal point being St James's Street and the Old Steine. It's here you'll find most of the clubs, shops and bars mentioned in the guide, so many in fact that Kemptown has become known as 'Camptown'! and Brighton's Gay Village.

Where possible, we have tried to give an idea of the type of venue, atmosphere and clientele at each venue.

SHOPPING
Shopping in Brighton is great fun, you never know what you might pick up in and around town. As usual there is something for everyone.

Shopping in Brighton is split into four main areas:

The Lanes(aka South Lanes)
Full of very nice, but in the main fairly expensive shops. Main themes are antiques and clothes (generally the more formal type of designer labels).

The North Laines
This is more like it, lots of small value for money shops. Main themes are music, clothes (casual, second-hand & club culture influenced fashions), this is also the place for natural remedies and similar esoterica. This area is also very popular with students. In short the best way to describe it for anybody who knows London is a sort of Covent Garden/Neals Yard without the hype or the expense.

Western Rd/North Rd
The main shopping thoroughfares, this is where you will find most of the main chain stores - Next, Body Shop, Ann Summers (!!!), Virgin Megastore et al

Kemptown/St James'
This is of course the Gay Village, so whilst it might not have a great variety of shops it is still worth a quick sashay around Safeways'. This is also the place where most of the specialist gay shops listed below are found.

This is as straight as it gets. Please note that Anna is available BEFORE Conference starts at 11.00am, which should certainly make for an interesting "workshop". Col. Islam of the PFL personally recommends a session with the electric nipple clamps.


MISTRESS ANNA

Total Control

I AM A LIFESTYLE DOMINATRIX and have been involved in the S/M scene for many years, initially as an amateur, then for the last five years as a Professional Dominatrix. I invite my guests to my discrete private house, located on the outskirts of Brighton, very easily accessible by road and public transport.

I OFFER UNHURRIED SESSIONS of safe, sane, sensual S/M in a fully equipped dungeon, mirrored on all four sides. My specialities, or passions are primarily bondage, whether oriental rope bondage, full rubber encapsulation, leather restriction. I do not offer verbal humiliation, it does nothing for me, nor do I allow oral or penetrative sex (no exchange of bodily fluids for very obvious reasons).

I AM HAPPY TO OFFER BONDAGE SESSIONS which do not involve any corporal punishment or correction as I know many people are either concerned about possible marks, or simply don't enjoy CP. I have never considered CP an essential part of the session, although I am happy to provide this service for those who enjoy it and I cane extremely accurately. In addition to canes of various types, I also have paddles, tawses, cat o' nine tails, rubber and leather thonged whips, Persuader and many other items.

I ALWAYS RESPECT my guests limits, although I hope to gradually extend them, a plea for Mercy is always granted. I enjoy introducing guests to new sensations of pain and pleasure. Erotic pain skillfully applied becomes intense pleasure.

GUESTS ARE WELCOME to bring with them details of their current experience, anything they have always wished to try, anything that is taboo to them. They are also invited to contact me after the session to critique the session, I enjoy the feedback. True domination is centred on the mind, and the more you open your entire mind to me, all your innermost feelings and fears, hopes and dreams, the more complete the domination.

WITHIN MY WELL EQUIPPED ROOM there is a steel bondage cube, a freestanding steel bondage frame (from which no one has ever escaped) a whipping stool, long bondage bench and various other items. For suspension there is an inversion table (you are held completely upside down, very securely by your ankles) a sit sling and we are currently playing with more ideas for suspension. The room is always changing, I get bored easily.

FOR LEATHER BONDAGE
as well as the normal collars, cuffs, hoods of different intensities, there are short and full length bondage gloves, single arm binder and a full body leather strap harness and for total leather enclosure a fetters straight jacket and full length body bag.

FOR THOSE WHO ENJOY NIPPLE 'TORTURE' I have a dozen different type of nipple clamps and various weights to attach to them. For the very masochistic I also have two sets of electric nipple clamps.

ONE OF MY MAIN PASSIONS is electrostimulation. In no way related to an electric shock. Battery only units are utilised. Rather than the sharp sudden pain of electric shock which is unsafe and in any case limited, these battery units with specialised attachments create sensations which begin very gradually, as a mild tingle, and build up to intense sensation. I have many different units including Falsom, PES, EMS, Slendertone and various units which have been made for me. I also own the new EROSTEK 312 and 312R, the new generation of electrics with audio and remote control. These are used in conjunction with cock rings (in perspex, rubber or copper), cock straps, testicle straps and anal probes (of various sizes). For the more masochistic or very experienced, I also have the Falsom C and B Torture Board and various electric catheters. No one has yet failed to ask for Mercy after an electric session, no matter what their tolerances.

I LOVE RUBBER BONDAGE and enjoy wearing rubber myself. My TV assistant Julie is an ardent rubberist and loves to be invited to join in on a rubber session. I have two full length total enclosure rubber sacks, two straight jackets (different styles) and lots of hoods and gas masks. Two of my favourite hoods are for total enclosure, one a double faced hood, the other with a full cape and just pinhole eyes and mouth. I also have rubber corsets, skirts, stockings, gloves and bondage mittens, some dresses.

TVs ARE ESPECIALLY WELCOME. I can feminise you completely via wigs, thigh boots, shoes, corsets, lingerie, stockings and suspenders, make up, falsies, pvc and satin maids uniforms from sizes 10-22. I feel that 'forcing' a normally dominant male to cross dress emphasises their submission to my will, and makes the male instantly feel more submissive. It also makes them prettier!
THUMBNAILS


THE INITIAL SESSION lasts for a full hour in the dungeon, not just in the house. You are invited to arrive fifteen minutes early the first occasion so we can have a chat etc. I am happier to offer a longer session, particularly for rubberists, when I have met you once.

 

THE WAY TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT IS TO TELEPHONE
07010 703783


ideally between 9.00 and 11.00 in the morning when I always answer the phone. During the rest of the day I answer personally if I am available, otherwise my TV housekeeper will be happy to give you more details or make an appointment for you. I am available Wednesday through to Saturday. Appointments can be made as far in advance as you wish but must be confirmed between 9-11 the day of your appointment.
You should always plan a least 24/48 hours in advance, I only see a couple of people a day, hence it is often difficult to obtain a same day appointment.
