LA TRISTESSE - S/M, B/D CLUB
Tristesse is the cityís most notable S+M club and itís most tasteful, if not a
bit terrifying. The interior of the club is rich and sumptuous, velvets, lace
and soft lines. The floor is marble, the lighting subtle. The main floor of the
club is a lounge/nightclub where those who are less adventurous may enjoy
the fetish side of NYC without delving too deeply. Clientele is selective
though, even for the night club. A dress code is strictly enforced as is
La Tristesse is where people can relax, not be hassled
and not be judged. The Lounge area of La Tristesse is the only area that humans
are allowed unless they are a Blood Doll. The music tends to be atmospheric -
Delirium, Enigma, Deep Forest, Clannad and the like. This area is for
socializing only, Le Chambre is for play.
If you are adventurous enough to leave the main area of the club, you pass the
Curtain, and are led to the area below. This is where the fantasy begins
and where the fantasies are fulfilled, no matter how depraved they might be.
The ceiling is high vaulted and shines with the glamours of whatever the club
owners wish for that day (night sky, sunsets, frescoes, etc) Le Chambre,
also known as the main floor, is sunken and is surrounded on three sides by
seating. The floor is sprinkled with drains throughout and above the floor
to the right and left are two cages suspended in midair that routinely hold men
and women. Doorways to many of the more private viewing areas also surround Le Chambre.
Shows are performed here nightly, voyeurism is appreciated and it is
not always for the faint of heart. In fact the faint of heart need not go
to La Tristesse. A bar lines the back wall and all types of drinks are
served here, chilled or warmed.
The doors encircling the outside of Le Chambre lead to more private spaces.
All rooms are soundproofed and some have viewing areas, but not all. Each
room has a theme and each a variety of devices and costumes. Pain is Pleasure after
all. Here you can indulge your darkest fantasy and not be punished for it,
though more mundane fantasies like teacher/Student at a replica of a school room
are also indulged.
La Tristesse is housed in an old, non-descript
building in lower Manhattan. The Club's logo, an eye with a stylized tear,
is the only thing on the outer doors. Parking is in the front and a valet
service is available. The employee parking lot is behind the building and
the back entrance is guarded religiously, in fact only those who work there or
know of its existence can navigate through the glamour masking it. Only
the most elite guests are able to enter from this entrance.
+ Mind your manners.
+ No last names, this helps protect those who prefer anonymity.
+ If a submissive comes in unattended, their word is law over their person.
When they say no, no one is allowed to force themselves. If they say yes,
anything can be done unless the safety is invoked.
+ If a submissive comes in with a dominant, the dominant's word goes. If a
dominant says yes, even if the submissive says no, anything is allowed. If
the dominant says no, even if the submissive says yes, nothing can be done.
+ While torture is allowed, permanently maiming or killing is illegal. If
you are caught doing such things you will be killed.
+ While sex in the club is allowed, though frowned upon, sex is not allowed in
the main area of the club, only behind the Curtain. Any patron caught having sex or engaging in
sexual activity will be punished duly.
