The Dan Daw Show (Dan Daw Creative Projects)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2022

As a mostly-able bodied, vanilla hetero, this gay, proudly ‘crip’ light S&M / voyeurism / dance crossover mightn’t be aimed squarely at me, but it’s nonetheless a revelation of how, for some, s&m can consist in just being left standing wobbling on a table, unsupported. Lithe, tattooed Daw, consenting to the trusted control of able bodied Chris, “here so that those of you [like him] can see yourselves represented” is inspected, spat on, spun, wrestled, hefted and shaken before latex fun with a vacuum cleaner. Necessarily-choreographed, anyone expecting hardcore will be disappointed – but if Daw’s not totally aroused, he’s certainly interested. Wanting “to be in control and surprised at the same time. I’m such a messy bitch”, he gets his wish. We share his ‘crip joy’.
