NYC bondage block party avoids complaints

The New York Police Department says it did not receive any complaints about a block party featuring outdoor fetish and bondage play.

The June 21 party, between 10th and 11th avenues on West 28 Street, was attended by several thousand people who sources told the New York Post each paid $10 to enter.

Videos of the event posted to YouTube depict nearly-nude men fondling each other's genitals, a man in leather chaps having his bare butt whipped while a crowd looks on and a man with his hands bound over him and his genitals restrained.

The New York Police Department issued a parade permit for the event.

We were aware of the event and did not get any complaints during the event, a police spokesman said.
