10 Freaky Fetish Fair Items, Repurposed Away From Perversion
The Sheraton Brookhollow was the scene this weekend for the Fetish Fleamarket, a large gathering of BDSM types seeking products, tips, partners, all kinds of things.
We sent a photographer out to do a slideshow, and we have to admit a lot of this stuff looks like it would be....underused, you know? Sure, you'd take it out for the occasional dungeon session, but what about the rest of the time?
Here are 10 of the odder items from the fair and how they can be repurposed.
10. Inedible Bear Claw
Actual purpose: Badly designed drink coaster? Backscratcher for someone with really long arms who doesn't really need a backscratcher? No, it's probably got something to do with animals and hand jobs.

Repurposed as: The kitschiest h'ors d'ouerves holder ever!!! Those claws are perfect for holding some olives or cherry tomatoes.
9. Play It Pretty For Atlanta
Actual purpose: Horse role play, where someone gets a bridle on them and acts like a horse.
Repurposed as: Temporary mullet to see whoever's touring as Lynyrd Skynyrd this year. The stuff around the mouth? Just homemade orthodontia ready for There, I Fixed It.
8. Handy Utility Belt
Actual purpose: Can we admit we're baffled? It doesn't look like anything you'd see in the Cock Ring Warehouse. Strap-on holder?
Repurposed as: A handyman's belt. You've got plenty of snaps along the top. And get yourself some carabiners to hook up to that ring, and you can hold anything. You might not be walking around too comfortably, but your tool load will be vastly increased.
