Spank Blacklight Forest Loft Party 4/23 Host: Xander

April 19, 2011

Man of a thousand looks XANDER was the essential choice to host this blacklight immersion event. He typically has at least one element of his outfit that requires a battery —but more often most of his look is somehow electric. Two weeks ago DJing at Clubber Down Disco when the lighting system crashed midway through the night XANDER saved the day with several strobing (and surprisingly powerful) bracelets. Expect multiple looks and major floor moves from one of Spank’s favorite luminescent nightclub superhero’s. More than enough of a reason to go get your advance ticket now! sb

March 1, 2011

Wow, we are still vibrating from our amazing night with Escort and Midnight Magic. We heard from friend after friend how there was a truly positive energy in the room, and yeah as much as we try not to get all west-coasty were were feeling the love too. Thanks to photographer by Paul Wagtouicz for the great pro-concert shots. More of our hand-held point-and-shoot snaps to come. And … Save the date -March 12th Spank breaks in a  new BK loft from a proper night of ass-shaking!

Holiday Spank Special: Buy Bitch & TUFF, the SPANK scent!

December 20, 2010

Need that last-minute gift for a friend? We got you covered, this week only order the limited edition Spank Scent Bitch&Tuff for Just $25.00!

Inspired by men after sex, jockstraps and steam rooms and brought to life by Cory Ingram the Bitch & TUFF scent is a special moment! With just 150 signed and numbered units available it’s a limited edition one-time-only don’t-miss part of Spank history that you will want to wear every day. In fact, it’s two scents that can be combined or work separately depending if you wanna feel the Bitch or play TUFF. Both have a spicy woody appeal and we smell hints of leather in TUFF and aromas of amber in Bitch.
