“Husky” – Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, circa 2003
Designed and Built by Chargerpony
Current owner Museum of Sex in NYC
Husky first appeared at BDSM community parties in the
Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area during the winter of 2003/2004 and rapidly
gained a following. One day, three
community members were discussing the ‘edginess’ of riding Husky at a public
community function. It was decided
that anyone who was brave enough to do so should receive special recognition for
their performance. They purchased a
supply of pins in the shape of a howling husky and presented them to
Chargerpony. Immediately thereafter, he began to publicly ‘pin’
anyone who had ridden Husky and made a spectacle of themselves in front of two
or more people. These individuals,
quickly dubbed “Husketeers,” soon chose Husketeer names, such as Screamer,
Speedy and Shy, in an obvious parody of an early television series.
Now numbering well over 50 named members including women, men,
transsexuals and a short list of certified operators, the evolving culture of
the Royal Order of Husketeers celebrates new public riders each month at a local
BDSM munch where the initiation begins with a public ‘pinning.’
Completing the ceremony Members
sing the refrain at public BDSM gatherings – often in 4-part harmony – with
the full song saved for special occasions.
Constructed from a Kitchen Aid mixer, Husky is one of four
machines built by Chargerpony. The
other three creations include Huskette, which is owned by Mistress Amanda
Wildfyre and can be seen in Gwen Media DVD releases in which she stars,
Husky II, which was built for a private individual and Junior.
Husky has been seen in action annually in early June at the
Minnesota Knights of Leather Tournament, and at numerous BDSM parties in the
Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. While
most Husketeers are from Minnesota, a few reside in Wisconsin and Illinois.
Like the corporation that begat the television series, the “Royal Order
of Husketeers” plans to become a worldwide phenomenon.
Husky is the only machine that we know that is a member of a leather back patch club he is proudly to wear his colors
After a 7 hour marathon in the fall of ‘05 with around 20
riders, Husky was carted up and sent to NYC Museum of Sex to be part of exhibit
on sex machines. This coincided with the book release of Sex
Machines: Photographs and Interviews by Timothy
Archibald. After 3 months Husky was set to come back home but the museum asked
if they could keep him for part of their permanent collection. So with a huge
void to fill, Junior was born. He is more powerful, faster and can accommodate
two at a time. Charger is talking about making modifications so depth can be
changed on the fly also making it so there can be four riding Junior at the same
