On this blog I jokingly asked if the days of the vanilla 5 km run were over. You name it, the duo of Fit, Feminist, and Almost Fifty bloggers plus our extended community of fit, feminist guests of all ages have done it and blogged about it.
On the whole, I love the participatory spirit of these events. Music and costumes and a great supportive spirit. The fifty something author of that piece thinks youngsters are ruining competitive racing with their lack of concern for finishing times.
The more the merrier, to each her own, etc….
Tracy agrees in her blog post on why she likes races in which everyone gets a medal. Some people think if you like two things, say like food and sex, the combo is even better. Not me.
Not food and sex. Not exercise and sex either. The event—which will feature such obstacles as the Dominatrix Dungeon, the G-String Crawl, and the Boob Wall—is the brainchild of Kelly Perez, an obstacle-course buff and the owner of adult novelty store SensualSteals. Forget it. Exercise and sex are so closely related: They both cause you to get all hot, sweat, and release feel good pheromones.
So why is there not an event that can bring the two together? Do I have any actual feminist concerns? I do have one really worry about consent, power dynamics, and really demanding physical activity.
At the Warrior Dashno one made you do the obstacles. There was no penalty for not doing them and no one yelled at you. Instead, some of the obstacle staff gave tips on how to complete a given obstacle quickly and safely. If you decided not to do it, then you ran around it.
Some obstacles were so much fun that people did them twice. And if the people attending got their understanding of consent from that particular book, then yikes. For a feminist, kink positive review of 50 Shades etc, see crazy and criminal: on those damn books, and why they matter.
