Each year for about the last 10 years a sexual circus has been criss-crossing France. This year’s 2012-2013 tour started in the city of Pau the 6th of October and has already been to Metz, Narbone, Rouen, Tours, and Reims. I caught up with it in Toulouse from where it will be continuing on to Lyon, Beaune, La Rochelle, Rennes, Nantes, Nice, Bordeaux, Nimes, Chambery, Marseille and it’s final stop in Paris the 23rd of March 2013.
A quick survey of the local papers where the circus already passed didn’t show up much controversy. However, a couple of years ago there were some comments from the Catholic church in Bordeaux over the poster being too sexy.
Another interesting observation is that this year the local paper in Narbone published 4 short articles (here, here, here and here) and one slide show on their site. (I think someone got some free tickets !)
Like most craft and trade show that go from town to town you usually have a good selection of related articles for sale. That’s what you see here. A traveling sex shop, food and drinks, sexy guys and girls selling autographed photos, … and the entrance to the 18 years old and over section.
The general rule at a carnival sideshow is to separate the marks (clients) from their money. This one is no different. The moment you go through the door, you can be sure that they are going to do their best to help you “shoot your wad” – of money. You pay to get in, you pay for all the sex stuff you can buy once you enter and then you can pay to enter the over 18 year old section. The only thing you don’t have to pay extra is the male strip show – but the admittance is ladies only.
The 18 year old section is a different level of sex. Real porn. People fucking on stage (making an X rated video is the excuse). Completely nude strip shows, completely nude strip and mastribation with a dildo, 2 nude girls fucking with a dildo,….
But no, just to show you I’m not making this up, here is the real menu :
Kind of makes me think of the menu at the automatic car wash.
If you would like more info about the show, the link is here. I don’t know what will happen to the link after the end of the tour, maybe it will be redressed for next year’s show ?
Finally, as the About page of this site makes clear, we try to avoid the “vast sea of sexploitation sites” and while this show is a sexploitation site on wheels it is a part of the sexual landscape of France. A page in the book that is Sex In France.
