CLAUDE Play Packs now distributed at Max Black!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Max Black and Claude have joined forces to bring free kinky play packs directly to women who play with other women. Is that you? Next time you visit Max Black you can pick one up!

Max Black is stocked with play packs which have lube, condoms, gloves, cleaning product for toys and surfaces and of course no kit would be complete without some info about safe sex, looking after yourself, your partners and your toys. Blood play packs are also available with the same contents as the above kit and also a sharps disposal bin, alcohol swabs, needle tips, cotton wool balls and of course we’d never distribute this kind of stuff without some information about how to keep yourself safe and free from blood borne viruses.

If you can’t make it in to Max Black but you’re a woman from NSW you can order your free play pack on the Claude website ( While you’re there check out the badass site which celebrates women into kink, defiance, art and sex.

Claude is pumped full of all the good stuff – music, bravery, health info, free stuff, videos, interviews and everything that sits on the edge. One more thrust and Claude would burst!

MaXXX Loves ACON – come help us support them!

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

MaXXX Black has been working closely with ACON ever since we first threw open our gorgeous doors.  The Aids Council of NSW  undertakes such a huge range of community health and well-being initiatives that there is literally not enough room in this post to list them all. Needless to say their impact on Sydney is not only positive, but with our governments paralised by politics, the work they do is now essential.

That’s why we’re throwing our support behind even more of the events that help raise funds for this incredibly important organisation. And we invite you to join us for all the fun…

BINGAY at The Imperial Hotel

Every Tuesday night you’ll find the Bingay crew (the divine Tora Hymen and smashing Naomi) dolling out prizes to the lucky bingo crowd in the recently renovated cabaret room. We’ve been supporting Bingay with fresh naughty prizes every week so in addition to the usual craziness, you’ll find some MaXXX Black lovin.

Bingay is an weekly ACON fundraising event hosted by the multi DIVA award-winning drag queen, Tora Hymen. Tora’s barrel girl is the all-singing out there dyke Naomi Palmer who recently received her first DIVA award. Bingay has been running every Tuesday night from 1999. During that time, it has raised over $750,000!

Most Tuesday nights are a great mix of poofs, dykes and straight people. Many even bring their mums and aunties. But be warned, the night is a racey one!

Bingay is Tora’s take on bingo, but it has a very big twist! Expect weird rules, singalongs, penalties and hilarious stories with prizes that range from the silly and camp to great theatre tickets or restaurant vouchers. It is a night for friends to get together and have fun on a ‘school night’, that also ends by around 11pm so you can have a great night out without feeling like you can not face work the next day! Free snacks and food are served each week.

If you want to organise a birthday party, just let us know by calling David on (02) 9206 2110. We are happy to supply hats and party toys for your table at no cost. Naomi will even sing happy birthday for your friend. Holding a birthday party at Bingay is a great way to have fun and also help raise money for ACON.

If you would like to sponsor Bingay just like we do, or donate prizes, please call David on (02) 9206 2110.

EVENTS: MaXXX & The Imperial Hotel Erskineville

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Many moons ago, when MaXXX Black was just emerging on King Street, and the world was pre-Obama and pre-pre-Julia, MaXXX proudly sponsored several events and gigs at the Imperial Hotel Erskineville. Then they renovated, and we renovated, and well the story gets boring until now…

MaXXX Black is set to continue our tradition of sponsoring local events and groups, and especially ACON. And it all starts THIS WEEK. From Tuesday 15th November we’ll be putting up some cheeky and sometimes delicious prizes for two of the Imperial Hotel’s most popular mid-week gigs:


Bingay is a Sydney institution and if you haven’t been to one these raucous, colourful and insanely fun nights, then you MUST GO NOW. Held every tuesday night, and several times a year as a Big Bingay (different venue), the whole shebang is hosted by Naomi Palmer & Tora Hymen. Starts at 8pm.


Come join the delightful Verushka Darling for the campest night out in town. No two weeks are ever the same when Verushka is behind the mic! Will you survive the entire song? Or Will Verushka strike the gong, kicking you off stage? Whatever happens you’ll be in the running for cash and prizes (some of which will come from MaXXX).

Hosted by the fabulous Verushka Darling, starts 9pm.


So no more excuses – Laughs, fun, drinks, and a chance to take home prizes from MaXXX Black!

Mardi Gras Fair Day Tomorrow!

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

Everyone’s favourite picnic in the park is back and better than ever! Kicking off the official Mardi Gras season, this year’s Fair Day promises a fun and relaxed day out with your friends and family, even your pets!

Up to 70,000 people turn out from across Sydney and the Globe to revel in the beauty of Victoria Park – which will be transformed by hundreds of stalls, a plethora of delicacies at the myriad of food outlets, and dozens of events on the day.

Some of the Mardi Gras festivals’ best talents will entertain the crowds from the Foxtel Main Stage, including some special guests and emerging Australian talent. But there will be plenty of colour away from the stages too, with the day boasting a range of entertaining activities for everyone.

Hailed as a great success last year, the Gaydar Garden Lounge is back by popular demand, providing a relaxed space to kick back, have a drink and listen to live sounds from an exclusive selection of DJs. The perky pooches of Dulcie’s Dog Show, presented by Eagle Pack Petfood, are also back to vie for the esteemed title of best dressed mutt. And for the little ones, there are exciting rides, the Fair Day playground plus a host of activities for endless fun in the sun.

Fair Day is also where many of our community groups get together. The bears have their tree, the dykes their bikes, the sports teams their tug-o-war and much more. Key community organisations will also be handing out handy information packs – so you won’t be leaving empty handed! You might discover a newfound hobby or a cause you’re passionate about.

This year, Fair Day also welcomes the New Mardi Gras Hub, a space to discover what’s hot this Mardi Gras season and to find out more about the New Mardi Gras organisation, what they do and how you can get involved. Make sure to pop by and sign up for exclusive member news and updates.

Remember, Fair Day is a fundraising event, so to help them keep the ‘fair’ in Fair Day, gold coin donations to the friendly Fair Day volunteers located at each entrance would be greatly appreciated.

And don’t forget we’ll be open until midnight on Sunday, so if you’re coming back through Newtown afterwards, why not drop in and say hi?!

Where: Victoria Park, Cnr of City Rd & Parramatta Rd, Chippendale. 10am – 8pm.
