All aboard the bondage boat! Hundreds of leather-clad Germans set sail for the world’s largest floating fetish festival

If you think cruises are only for the newlywed or nearly dead then think again…

This weekend, hundreds of latex-loving Germans set sail for a floating fetish boat party .

The Torture Ship is the world’s largest party for fans of BDSM and takes place on board a moving barge which has set sail across Lake Constance on the Germany-Switzerland border every summer for the past 22 years.

500 people attended the event as participants flaunted an impressive array of bondage gear, including gimp masks and figure-hugging corsets.

Attendees were seen wearing a wide range of leather attire

Other outrageous attire included leather skirts, horse masks and revealing leather chaps accompanied with whips and chains.

The one night trip, which costs €65 per ticket, set sail from Friedrichshafen to its destination in Konstanz, a historic medieval town in southern Germany.

A large crowd of onlookers witnessed the intriguing spectacle from the safety of the shoreline as it set off from its port.

Organisers say numbers were down on the previous year – due in part to Germany and Sweden’s World Cup encounter which took place on Saturday.

In 2014 The Torture Ship was forced to close down its notorious ‘dark room’ – a large space used for sexual encounters – after it fell foul of German authorities.
