50 More Shades of Grey?: Running until November 11, an exhibition entitled MIRUM by photographer José Antonio Suvires pulls back the curtain on the world of sadomasochism in a way which is not prurient but opens the door on a practice that is little understood.
The collection of 28 photographs can be viewed free of charge between 10am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday at la Casa Museo in the Plaza de la Libertad de Mijas.
There is no guarantee that the models featured in our photograph will be on hand when you visit but there will certainly be plenty to catch your eye and perhaps educate on what is quite a secret world.
There are images of an adult nature, so those who might be offended or have children on hand might wish to consider whether a visit would be appropriate.  https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/11/02/behind-the-curtain/

Police on the hunt for Halloween attacker in Nerja: Police in Nerja are on the hunt for a young man who allegedly tried to sexually attack an 11 year old girl during the Halloween festivities on Thursday.
According to the police report, the man was wearing a cap with is face covered by a scarf and was on a bicycle at the time.
The incident occurred on Thursday night during the Halloween celebrations in the Capistrano urbanization area when the man rode up to the young girl who was with a group of friends and grabbed her arm, allegedly trying to touch her intimate areas.
She managed to escape and alert her parents who then alerted the Guardia Civil.
No arrests have yet been made and police are finding investigations difficult due to the fact that at the time of the incident, there were hundreds of people in the vicinity, most of whom were wearing disguises.
The Guardia Civil have released a description of the man, stating that he was tall, blonde, thin and had his face covered with a cap and a handkerchief.
If you witnessed this attack please contact the Guardia Civil. Photo:Google Maps
