Hot Sexy Events: August 20 – 26
It’s time for another edition of Hot Sexy Events here on Erotic Vancouver, but first we wanted to take a moment for some shameless self promotion. Erotic Vancouver’s Managing Editor, Reive Doig, is now blogging for the Huffington Post and his first piece is up online. Give it a read, like, share or comment on it, and hopefully you’ll be seeing more sex and sexuality news courtesy of The Huffington Post BC Edition. Click here to read the piece B.C.

Now on to those Hot Sexy Events for this week.
Tuesday, August 21st, join Le Cabaret Du Passe for Caravan de Gypsy. It’s a night of mysterious music and mysterious women. Featuring the Passe ladies Calio P. Cock, Spooksy DeLune and Lola Frost, with special guest Miss Cherry On Top. The show runs from 8pm until 11pm, but it’s taking place at Guilt and Company, which means you’re best off getting there early if you hope to catch the whole show—this is a venue known for it’s line ups! By Donation.
Here at Erotic Vancouver we applaud the local efforts of the kinky set to engage in more peer to peer education rather than simply relying on organizations and businesses to provide classes on what they seek to know. The most prominent effort for this is Rope Night, a regular gathering of bondage enthusiasts to share their knowledge with each other.
This Wednesday, August 22nd Rope Night focuses on the Triangle Harness. It’s an excellent tie for beginners, so if you’ve never done rope bondage this is the night to dive right in. It will also benefit experienced riggers.
The fun runs from 7-11pm. Cost to attend is by donation, simply to cover expenses. You’ll find details here on Fetlife. (Please note that a free Fetlife membership is required to see event information.)
Also happening Wednesday night is a screening of Mean Girls hosted by Ryan Steele and Amy Gee, presented by Friends of Dorothy and Xtra West. We’re not sure which will be more fun, this Tina Fey penned comedy starring a then 18-year-old Lindsay Lohan, or the skewering Lindsay is likely to receive from one of Vancouver’s best drag queens, Raye Sunshine. Happening at The Rio Theatre. Doors at 9pm, live show starts at 9:30pm and the movie starts at 10pm. Details can be found on Facebook.
Thursday, August 23, The Vancouver Burlesque Centre, which holds regular burlesque worksops, presents Hosting 101 with Beatrix Hotter. Tips, tricks, and everything you need to know in order to host a Burlesque Show.
Beatrix currently performs at various events and shows around Vancouver including Kitty Nights, Saturday Nights at Hyde, and Hot & Buttered Burlesque to name a few.
She is the co-creator of Bad Girl Burlesque and hosted the popular show “Booze, Shoes, and Girls with Tattoos!”
She also has a diploma in Broadcast Performing Arts and and some kick ass tattoos, all of which make her immensely qualified to teach folks to be nearly as awesome on stage as she is! Check out the seminar event listing on Facebook, where you can also find The VBC‘s list of upcoming workshops.
Also on the burlesque front, from August 23- September 1st you can catch Oliver Fannie, a Burlesque Musical at The Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island. Written by Melody Mangler and produced by the award winning Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society, if you’re a lover of burlesque this is a not to miss production! In fact if you’re a fan of fun, wit and lady-bits in general it’s a not to miss show!
Inspired by the original theatrical burlesque productions of the late 1800’s, Oliver Fanny features a combination of witty satire and lowbrow humour that presents sexuality in a way that is positive and disarmingly funny. The seventeen member cast performs fourteen song and dance parodies of ‘Oliver’ and ‘Annie’ including: Ohh La La; Hard Cock Life; Boobs Glorious Boobs; and You’ve Got to Use a Finger or Two. Full details can be found on Facebook.
Friday, August 24, VASM presents a Play Party for Men in the Dugneon Space at M2M. From 8pm-midnight join the men of VASM (Vancouver Activists in S&M) for some kinky fun and sexy good times. If you’re new to BDSM this is your chance to learn how to play in a safe, sane and consensual environment while a Dungeon Master (no, not the Dungeons & Dragons kind) answers your questions and looks out for your safety.
VASM holds events at M2M the fourth Friday of each month. For further details on this party and VASM itself visit their webpage.
Saturday, August 25th, is Gear Saturday at The PumpJack Pub presented by Vancouver Men in Leather from 10pm to close. Leather, rubber, fetish and shirtless dress are all encouraged. There’s a back room dungeon where the only restriction is no booze allowed. So come join the fun. Lube and rubbers provided. It’s not what your community can do for you, but who you can do in your community!
Details on Gear Saturday can be found on the VML website.
Sunday, August 26 ,those Van Poly 101 folks are at it again, and this time they’re at it early! They’ve got a hike planned along the Buntzen Lake Trail that starts at 9:10am. It almost didn’t make this list just because of that fact—nothing sexy starts at 9am in the morning!
The hike is scheduled to last about 4 hours, and hot tubbing is planned afterwards. You’ll find more details at the Facebook event listing, and information on Van Poly 101 on their group page. While they welcome anyone into or wanting to learn about consensual non-monogamy you’ll want to drop them a line before just showing up to hike.
Also happening on Sunday, our final listing for this week is neither hot or sexy but rather sad; it does however celebrate the life of someone who saw, hosted and was the subject of more than his fair share of Hot Sexy Events. From 1:30-3:30pm A Party in honour of Douglas Gault is being held at The PumpJack. In keeping with his wishes there will no speeches, no sad music, no pictures and no flowers to honour this great leather man. Instead there will tasteless, rude and dirty jokes aplenty (feel free to submit some) and no doubt many a great story told.
Dress is anything you want, but in case you’re the sort that believes that Doug might be looking down on all the festivities, then keep in mind that some leather, levis or twink wear might give him a little thrill. More details available on Facebook.
And that wraps up another week of Hot Sexy Events. Know of something you think should have made the list but didn’t? Let everyone know about it in a comment below.
