Gorilla body suspension. Opinion? | General Discussion | Forum
February 3, 2008
What does everyone think about gorilla body suspensions? No, not suspending gorillas. A gorilla suspension would be a suspension done in public and unannounced, preferably in an area where a large audience would be. Gorilla suspensions would fall under the category of performance or artistic suspensions. Do you think this type of public suspension helps or hinders the body modification community? In what ways?

Artistically i love some of the guerilla suspensions i've seen, but i am very wary of those who just intend to shock or break the law. I understand the thrill of this, but i can see it bringing some negative publicity at some point. Lets face it, the community doesn't need any more. Challenge and educate sure, but there's ways and means. Challenging homophobia by having gay sex in public is unlikely to help.
I have a few suspension in public places planned myself for next summer, but it's about access and doing something important without causing a stir for me, not involving those who have not consented to view this if you can help it. Otherwise we run the risk of attention seeking or picking a fight.

In my opinion this is more detrimental to the community than beneficial. Im all about public suspension but believe that unless there is information readily available to all on-lookers that it hurts the image of our community.
