For eleven years from 2003 to 2014, the East Village party TRASH! was a regular source of excitement on the New York nightclub scene. It was all the brainchild of the DJ Jess Marquis, who is sadly no longer with us, but who evidently had a feel for playfully assertive masculinity:

‘Leave your dignity at the door,’ said reviewers.

Now, seeing the undignified pleasures of the young often incites a kind of bitter, illiberal censoriousness in older people, as if they are watching the Fall of the Roman Empire. Such people are often secretly and perhaps unconsciously jealous that they aren’t young themselves any more. Because, let’s face it, these are just young people having fun, and good luck to them. Especially when shenanigans go on…

And bottoms are smacked…

This young lady…

… is about to discover that sometimes it goes even further than a mere smacking:

Though, like many nightclubs, TRASH! suffered from a shortage of places for a spanker to sit down:

So for real spanking paydirt, we have to come off the dance floor and into the seasonal photo booths – Santa for Christmas, Cupid for Valentine’s Day. Because at TRASH!, they’re S&M photo booths…

… and girls don’t get to sit on Santa’s knee…

… nor, perhaps, do they get to sit down anywhere at all afterwards!

Well, that’s the theory. And here’s Jess Marquis putting it into practice on a girl who’s Bad by name and evidently bad by nature:

You’ve already seen Ashley Bad from the rear end on (she was the girl being smacked in the red PVC jumpsuit). But this time she doesn’t seem to be suffering any ill effects in her sitting area:

Why, she’s not even using the red pillow!

Looks like DJ Jess didn’t do a very thorough job there! Never mind, if at first you don’t succeed, try again – this time with Stormy Leather, who was a burlesque performer at TRASH! when she wasn’t being a naughty Santa in the photobooth:

(You may also have spotted her helping to dish out some birthday smacks earlier. Look for the tattooed kiss on her bottom!)

Other S&M Santas are available:

With elfin assistance from Jess Marquis:

Maybe this one will have more success in dealing with the naughty Miss Bad:

But remember, sometimes Santa herself is naughty:

Elves have also been known to misbehave:

Here’s someone Ashley Bad spanked earlier, who is now sitting comfortably to administer a dose of the same medicine to another naughty girl:

And if a Christmas spanking just isn’t enough for you… come back Valentine’s Day!

Alas, you can’t: TRASH! is no more. So thanks for the memories – and for the photographs in lieu of memories!
