I've done a lot of crazy things in my life, and none of it has given me what this craft has given me. It's almost as though I had to try all these other avenues before I arrived here, to know that they don't work. The rock guitarist — of Jane's Addictionand formerly the Red Hot Chili Peppers — is waxing lyrical about the practice of body suspension. Closely linked with the greater suspension kink of body modification, suspension is a practice in which an individual's skin is pierced with large sterilised metal hooks, from which they are then hung. Used in ancient cultures for millennia, the modern form has been redefined by people such as Fakir Musafar, Stelarc, and Allen Falknerwho describes it as "cathartic".
Clearly, there are risks. He highlights a of possible risks, including infection, nerve and tendon damage due to improper hook placement, and the appearance of suspension shock syndrome if an individual suspends vertically for too long. However, Scott DeBoer, a Chicago-based emergency medical technician and register nurse, insists it is safe. There are many different ways to suspend.
One involves hanging from two or four hooks in the upper back, but there are any of more complex positions. The height varies just as much, from a few feet off the floor to more exotic options, for example dozens of feet in the air above a cheering festival crowd. Professional suspension artists Starr Belew and Marlo Marquise did just that when Navarro invited them to perform onstage at a suspension kink Jane's Addiction concert. Belew was pleased with the crowd's reaction: "When I hang, I immediately go into an ear-to-ear smile and everyone I could see in the crowd below me was smiling just as big, snapping photos or pointing with their hands over mouth.
I've got to say, it was an amazing experience. This was not a first for the band, and Navarro credits performers such as Miss Crash and Samar with igniting his interest in the practice. I saw it as just a mind-over-matter thing until I got off the ground the first time. Then a lightbulb went off. Both Belew and Navarro say they understand people's scepticism and horror at suspension kink practice. There is pain involved, things can get bloody, and not every suspendee responds well to the intensity.
Body suspension is often referred to as sadistic and Belew recounts dealing with "disgusted" reactions to her performances. This is one reason why Navarro has refused to discuss his involvement before. I can get a very intensely gratifying emotional release. Sometimes it's just fun, but it can also be very meditative. If I've been in a deep depression for a few weeks, a few hooks and a few feet in the air and I'm feeling radiant and optimistic again.
Not everyone experiences a spiritual or physical high, and the psychological effects vary. It also details the many potential risks — though to date, no deaths have been reported as a result of suspension. Meanwhile, Falkner claims that growing interest is making it more mainstream. Body suspension: why would anyone hang from hooks for fun? Rock guitarist Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction is just one fan of hanging by hooks from the ceiling to relax.
Isn't it dreadfully dangerous? Not at all, its aficionados claim. Kim Kelly. Reuse this content.Suspension kink
