Seems unsubstanciated. I'd put it down as an urban legend.

Stray thoughts on barbarian costuming (over the morning's first cup of coffee):
- Leather and fur bikinis are cool. No, they're actually hot. I'm so confused.
- Long dresses and caftans get wrapped up in bicycle mechanisms. Best to change to something else when you want to bike about.
- Experiment away, but don't forget to bring some "sane" desert-rat clothes as a backup. :)
I got a deerskin kilt lined up, some medieval shoes, and will probably wrap rabbitskins around my shins. There may be a goatskin vest in my future. An all-muslin Viking ensemble would be a sane backup.

Sorry about all the sanity; I know it's looked down upon here.

Almost done with the theme camp plans. Ho-yo-to-ho!

but you forget ... long things can be tied up in various ways to make biking possible. i have a bunch of tie-able things of various lengths that i plan to wear, being a non-sewing barbarian. and a nice piece of faux fur for evenings out. AND a valkyrie hat, with blonde braids!

but no boffer sword, yet.

very very scarily...this is one urban legand that could be true. I have a friend who's had many alterations done (rib removal not among them), but the doc had some stories to tell.

Yes indeed truly worthy of Barbaric...now where's my pec implants? I have the PERFECT sword, will bring. :evil:

I've also heard about victorian women doing it, which just seems weird, as that would ahve been pre-antibiotics surgery. What are the medical consequences? Is it bad for you to have the lower bits of your lungs unprotected? The whole thing just smells like urban legend to me--the uncertain protagonist, the wacky morallizing it induces. YMMV.

Would you like to be tied up with leather thongs or hemp rope? Maybe we can experiment. ;)

Oh, yeah, and here's your cat:

By the way, Edhellen has a Do It Yourself Sword Kit. The two that I have were made this way. $19 apiece and no trouble at all to put together. :)

My, what a kinky little flower you are turning out to be. Is this something that you have done before or are you interested in experimenting?

I don't want to give the impression that Barbarian Camp is "about" BDSM; there are plenty of those on the playa.

who's kinky? you started the tying up theme! :lol:

it just seemed proper for barbarians to have a dungeon ... but as long as we can refer torture-minded barbarians to other camps, i am satisfied.

i still like that spanking bench, though

No problem, sorry, I am posting from work, and for some reason brutal torture in the slave pits comes to mind. I am sure we will be more friendly once we get "home". :)

EDG, I had no idea. I thought you were just another nose-picking playa slob like myself.

Did you make that all yourself? You're so... versatile! :)

i was thinking of wearing only chain mail on the playa ... but wouldn't the sun-heated metal burn me? i'd end up looking like i had a disease, or something.

here's a barbarian scenario more likely to be seen on the playa:

Only a wench would parade around in a scanty little chain maille combo like that.

Ample protection from boffers, that's for sure. Don't forget your sunscreen; otherwise, you'll have an interestingly patterned tan! :)
