Dave Navarro has played guitar for some of the biggest rock bands and stars in the world, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers and currently Jane’s Addiction, so he’s used to making a spectacle of himself on stage. Earlier this week, the 45-year old put on a different kind of show, though, as he hit the stage at Room 86 in Los Angeles for what he called his “first public suspension”, and what he means is that he likes to put hooks into his body and hang from the ceiling.
Some suspension fetishists apparently prefer to use ropes and chains without piercing their skin, but there are also those, Navarro included, who prefer flesh hook suspension for the “indescribable rush”.
Once you’re off the ground for several seconds, your brain releases endorphins into the rest of your body; actually putting itself into a mild state of shock. A suspension performer must break through incredible pain to reach through the pleasure at the end of the tunnel. However, once you break that wall, the state of euphoria that one can reach is simply indescribable. (Dani Danger)
At first, you kind of wonder if a guy like Navarro knows how dangerous this can be, but then you realize that he’s had sex with Carmen Electra, so he really doesn’t give a crap about consequences.
