When she trained for her first mud run, Kelly Perez felt out of her element. The exercise was nothing like her day job—selling adult toys through her website, Sensual Steals—and she struggled to find the fun in it. She began to consider what it would be like to combine a mud run race with the sexy, playful aspects of an adult consumer convention, and suddenly, the idea of running a race started to seem like a lot of fun after all.
That fun idea became the X-Rated Run: a 5K obstacle course that mixes mud with adult humor. Its obstacles divert from mud-run standards with their tongue-in-cheek names and props (the Dominatrix Dungeon, for example, encloses participants in a muddy maze festooned with hanging bondage items). Everyone runs in whatever clothing they feel most comfortable wearing (nudity is prohibited), and though there is a clock that tells you your race time, the vibe is hardly competitive. Kelly's foremost goal is to promote a sex- and body-positive outlook. To that end, the event welcomes runners of all fitness levels, and donates part of its proceeds to sexual health organizations. As Examiner.com points out, "It’s not just about fun, but about advocacy for victims of FGM (female genital mutilation)."
After the run, guests collect their completion medals and, if they're over 21, a free beer. Runners can partake of more food and drink at the on-site after-party, which features a DJ, burlesque dancing, male revue show and pole-dancing contests.
