Circus. Sex. Contraptions. The meaning of life.

December 7, 2006

By now you probably know that I am hot for the circus. Always, circus without animals, but otherwise, I’m in love with circus.

I dabbled for awhile in aerials, under the tutelage of Lara Paxton, one of the founders of Circus Contraption. Today I read an article that interviews Lara, and now I understand some of my circus affection.

Among other things, Lara says, “Circus also has an undeniable sexiness about it. And it’s a very immediate kind of sexiness, very alive. It’s not the airbrushed, anorexic, unattainable appeal presented in popular media. You can look at almost anyone performing in a renegade circus and think, ‘wow, I bet they’d be really fun to fuck.’ ”
