The Folsom Street Fair is a chance to air your fetishes, but not everyone gets off on leather chaps and butt plugs. For those whose secret thrill involves prim librarians in high-buttoned blouses and aristocratic types in fussy cravats, theres Perverted Prudes. A sort of flash mob without the, um, flash, Perverted Prudes encourages the sartorially straitlaced to descend on the street fairs booths and shop for sex toys while dressed as inappropriately squeaky clean folks. Suggested role models include Ned Flanders, first ladies, nuns, and the queen of England. Just because youre buttoned-up, however, doesnt mean you cant work out the kinks, if you know what were saying. Ahem! At any rate, Dont come if you dont have a genuine appreciation for fetish culture, Perverted Prudes cautions. And if you want to wear a butt plug under all that polyester, the queen need never know.
