Oh yeah, it’s going to be a fun but classy affair.’

The night of decadence offers two dining options. Tickets $175 including buffet dinner or $240 including degustation dinner. Price includes complimentary drink upon arrival, dinner and Lisa Hunt’s Forever Soul show. A Blanches Bus service is operating during the evening, dropping off and picking up outside The Byron at Byron Resort.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Why are we so blasé about violent pornography?

Why is it a turn on to hurt us? Recent intersectional studies have shown that online misogyny and violent pornography are contributors to a sharp rise in domestic violence. In NSW alone, police attend 500 incidents every day. If there were 500 threats or incidents at banks, or to the government, we would be in a state of emergency. Instead we stop, shake our heads, we listen to good men in government speak empty words, make a few promises, and move on. If you’ve ever lived through violence, it’s pretty well what your abuser does after hitting you.
