Hot Sexy Events: June 25 – July 1
Summer finally appears to be heating up here in Vancouver, and while in past years summer seemed to have a dearth of organized alt-sex events, the times they are a changin’, and for the better in the opinion of Erotic Vancouver.
On Wednesday, June 27, the oft featured here event Rope Night presents an evening dedicated to the delicious Mummy Ladder Tie. As the organizer puts it “In bondage, when we talk about body harnesses, we usually mean the torso. Not with this tie. The Mummy Ladder Tie will restrain your bottom from head to foot. It is a simple, elegant conception that requires no more than 90′ of rope.”
Rope Night gets under way at 7pm, with the tutorial itself starting at 7:30, and it runs (excuse the pun) when the organizer reaches the end of his rope! You’ll find details on Fetlife. Or you can contact the organizer via the address email@example.com
Friday, June 29, renowned local Tantric practitioner Oliva Jade offers the (ahem) hands on workshop Embodied Touch Massage. In this class you’ll learn to awaken the senses, connect with touch, and techniques for sexual and erotic touch. This three hour evening runs from 7pm-10pm, and due to it’s sensual and clothing optional nature is open to couples only, no single individuals. Cost is $75 per couple (prepaid) and $100 at the door. Fore more details you can visit Olivia Jade’s website. This class will be offered again on Friday July 13.
Friday June 29 also features an evening of entertainment from the Geeks After Dark crew, only this time instead of a night of comedy and burlesque GAD hosts and organizers Cam and Tyler will be reading from the literary sensation 50 Shades of Grey. Think the kinky novel is the greatest thing since the greeks put pen to papyrus? Then this isn’t the night for you! Expect funny voices, strange looks, and the potential to be driven mad with laughter.
Here at Erotic Vancouver we can’t say enough great things about the Geeks After Dark crew – they bring a fresh and humorous touch, not to mention unbridled enthusiasm, to everything they do. You’ll find details on this their Fifty Shades of Grey reading on Facebook.
Friday is turning out to be a pretty full evening, and we’re not done yet. There’s still one more party that evening, plus the opening night of a weekend long event to go!
Next up on Friday evening is the It’s a German Sparkle Party event Party Animals. Happening at Lana Lou’s in Gastown, it’s an evening to release your primal animal nature, and to watch burlesque performers do the same. Presented by Glass City Collective and featuring music by Das Musik, you’ll find all the details on Facebook.
When it comes to kink education in Vancouver, here at Erotic Vancouver we think MVK is the gold standard, and their Westward Bound Conference (renamed Westcoast Bound for next year, check out their website) simply can’t be beat for weekend long fun, learning and community commitment. But if you’re looking for some kinky education this summer then you might want to take in the Vancouver Edge Conference presented by Atypical Events this weekend. It features 15 presenters, 36 classes and 2 play parties over three days at the Maritime Labour Centre (which many of you will know as the home of MVK’s Vancouver Dungeon parties.)
Vancouver Edge might become the conference of choice for porn enthusiasts, featuring feminist porn star Madison Young teaching DIY porn class, James Mogul of Kink.com teaching “Bondage for porn,” and four rope workshops by Lochai, formerly of Hogtied.com.
Running from June 29 to July 1, you’ll find all the details on Vancouver Edge on their website.
Saturday June 30 is the Vancouver Slut Walk. Started in 2011 in Toronto after a police officer suggested that in order to remain safe, particularly from rape, “women should avoid dressing like sluts,” the Slut Walk movement has now spread world wide. This year’s Vancouver Slut Walk departs from the Vancouver Art Gallery at 2pm. You’ll find further details on Facebook and on their webpage.
Man, woman or someone refuses to be gender-labelled, if you’re not busy on Saturday afternoon come support the cause by marching!
Finally, wrap up your weekend on Sunday, July 1 at Kitty Nights’ “OH CANADA” show. A burlesque tribute to Canada. With performances by Burgundy Brix, Ruthe Ordare, Cecilia Bravo, Shameless Lee and April O’Peel. Hosted by the inimitable and insanely funny Purrrfessor, we can’t think of a better way to spend your Canada Day Night.
Happening at The Biltmore, (located at 395 Kingsway, on the corner of Kingsway and E. 12th) admission is only $7 at the door and includes a chance to win the Fabulous Bag of Sex. So shed your inhibitions and show off your patriotism proudly at Kitty Nights.
Details on Sunday night’s party can be found on Facebook, and for more on Burgundy Brix, The Purrrfessor and all that they do, visit the Kitty Nights website.
ADDENDUM: Somehow on first writing we missed including one of the highlights of not just the weekend but the summer. Canada Day, Sunday July 1, is the Lust in Space Fetish Fashion Show Gala. Presented by Restricted Entertainment, which produces local fetish night Sin City, this is a night that promises to deliver fetish fashion in spades! Presenting the fashions of Misty Greer, Suze666, Hypershine, PRIAPE and Lace Embrace Atelier, in addition to some sci-fi burlesque from Little Miss Risk & Mantra MMX, it promises to be a party quite unlike any other Vancouver has to offer.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a fetish only event. While fetish oriented outfits are highly encouraged they are not mandatory, and cameras are welcome.
Full details can be found on Facebook.
