Too Risqué for Logo: Faith Michaels and Her “Fetish” Video

Pushing the envelope—isn’t that what a gay network like Logo is supposed to be all about? The queer channel recently premiered the raunchy/silly Eating Out: Drama Camp, brought back A-List New York second catty season, and never shies away from the controversial with the panel-discussion show 1 Girl and 5 Gays.

But is singing about spanking, feet and bears taking it too far?

Given Logo’s comfort with drag queens, gay sex and hot-button issues, we’re kind of left scratching our heads why the net finds our Key West drag performer friend Faith Michaels’ “Fetish” video too risqué for PopLab, the channel’s music show.

But we’re not hating; they do what they do, and Faith does what she does. We leave you with her Gaetano Guido-directed video and a question: What’s your fetish?

Scott Wallis is the co-host of the Queerty/GayCities-sponsored comedy & interview show, Swish Edition. This week’s show features chats with Faith (natch) and NYC event promoter/Gulliver Travels author Justin Luke.

      Logo is ridiculous. They are so terrified that they over-censor to the point of idiocy. I’ve tried to watch a movie there and so much was censored that you could barely understand what was being said.

      LOGO is great if you like to watch censored, cut-up, commercial interrupted movies and shows with bugs, promos and other scribbling on-screen during the programs. NOT ME.

      Again Queerty gets it wrong, this video is on Logo because it’s too risque, it’s not on Logo because it sucks, it’s boring, it’s unoriginal, it’s embarrassing, it’s not even close to edgy, it’s repetitively mundane and worst of all, it’s ordinary.

      And please, bears . . . twinks . . . so NOT a fetish.

      I think it’s a great song and video. Don’t listen to the gay-ters, F. Michaels. Keep the faith and keep doing what you’re doing.

      The fetishes are very different from one another. Lumping them all together could cause confusion. I would separate BDSM from everything else, first of all. BDSM always involves aggressive domination and sometimes it even blurs the line of consent. It’s not safe. Fetishes that are “weird” but harmless are completely unlike BDSM. Foot fetishes, bears, olive oil, whatever. That’s weird, and maybe not always sane, but it’s perfectly safe.
