SUSCON 2014 will be in Dallas this time.

We will be at the Lizard Lounge if anyone wants to join......in for watching and some drinking.

And to those who didnt know, its 'skin-dependent suspension'.......aka people who hang from hooks.

It is sort of, except they use more hooks.....more humane that way.

We use to go to the ones down in Houston but they tended to be a little more 'unsettling'.

"unsettling" - reallly?  I can't imagine.

So, what's the purpose of this?   Are they on a vision quest or something?

Well, theres multiple reasons why people do this. Some do it to overcome some inner fears, others do it for the thrill, and while others do it for the erotica.

Dave Navarro of Janes Addiction/Red Hot Chili Peppers practices this.
