In front of a small dark door in a somber street in Paris, a man asks a small group of people if they know where they are. Some of them are carrying a small bag with a change of clothes – clothes made of leather, vinyl and latex. If you are not wearing any of them, you can’t come in. Once you come inside, you dive in another world. Known as “Nuit Elastique”, the soirée was founded in 1998 and it happens once a month.
The basement starts getting hotter after midnight, when people are already drunk and excited. You can see some guys blowing each other or a group of men masturbating while watching a couple having sex. Further down, a man is licking a girl’s shoe and feet and girls are getting spanked in the ass.
The bar never closes and videos keep looping in a huge screen. In a small room, a couple starts preparing a BDSM show. Welcome, bitches, to Paris by night.
