In the past, we here at Thrillist have told you about some cool hidden stuff around Chicago -- speakeasies, supper clubs, that secret Potbelly menu that made sandwich lovers love us and sandwich makers not love us.
What if we told you that Chicago is also home to, not one, but two exclusive sex dungeons?
It’s true, we ventured to these two secret spots -- one in Logan Square and the other in the West Loop -- to show you where you can make your sexual fantasies into realities (yes, even that kinky one that you’ve never said out loud).
Here are some other goodies you’ll find: Saint Andrew's cross Originally created to worship Andrew -- the patron saint of freakiness (? Bolted to the wall, Saint Andrew's Cross is great for stand-up bondage.
“If someone needs an extra little encouragement to stay in one place, this is good for intense sensation or being whipped,“ says Chase.
Impact playthings The toy selection includes floggers, whips, paddles, canes, crops, rulers, spoons, and hair brushes, all of which can be used for striking the body.
Try these bad boys out on the Saint Andrew's cross.
Medical play supplies Just in case you get a little too aroused, your room is equipped with safety repercussions like glucose pills and blood-clotting spray, as well as first-aid equipment.
“There are some calculative risks with kink activity,” says Chase.This room is used “for scenes that are a bit darker, heavier psychological play,” says Chase.She first gave us the finer points of BDSM -- that’s bondage, dominance, submission, and masochism for the layperson.Then, we toured two rooms where all the dark magic happens.“Slightly less intimidating than the other playrooms,” says Chase.“When folks are brand new to kink, this is the room I recommend.” Upon entering, you’ll come across oversized mirrors and a bondage table, which is a nice cushioned space used to restrain your partner horizontally, stretch them out, and do whatever your heart (and libido) desires.
