Inside Clubbing
Sensual Experiments in the Art of Being Human

Inside Clubbing puts the spotlight on club culture - in all its sweaty visceral and seductive glory. Moving from hip-hop clubs to fetish events and beyond, the author guides us through the expansive spectrum of the contemporary club experience. Drawing on interviews with clubbers from a variety of backgrounds, the author dispels myths and offers new insights in the clubbing scene. Contrary to popular perception, for example, clubbing is not just for youths. The clubbers in Inside Clubbing range from mid-twenties to their mid-fifties. Many have been on the scene for years and offer a historical perspective on changes over the last decade. The range of clubs and clubbers discussed also demonstrates the diversity of club culture - it's more than just an ecstasy fuelled dance scene. Taking us to into queer, trance, Asian, techno, drum n bass and sex clubs-among others - Inside Clubbing explores the real practice of clubbing. It looks at what people experience and how it affects them, as well as their values and concerns - from friendship and community to drugs, the body and life outside the clubbing space. This book breaks new ground in offering us the most balanced and sophisticated understanding of the club scene to date.
