Erotic Vancouver is happy to report that the week ahead, and particularly the weekend, offer plenty of reasons why Vancouver should justly be called “Oh Fun City!” In fact this Victoria Day long weekend has plenty of events that are anything but Victorian.
In fact paring the list down to just a dozen events this week was difficult, and we remind you that you can also check out Erotic Vancouver’s Calendar for a list of some of the events that might not be here on the Hot Sexy list but which certainly could have been.
This week’s Hot Sexy Events column is sponsored by NOIR Fetish Ball, which is one of the hottest happenings this coming weekend. You’ll find details on their Sunday Service below.
So read on, and start making some sexy plans for yourself!
A Munch is a social gathering of kinky people in a casual setting. No need for fetish wear, just casual dinner with other people who have an interest in kink. It is a great way to meet people and learn something new.
The Langley Munch is presented by Metro Vancouver Kink, in Erotic Vancouver’s estimation the gold standard in kink in the lower mainland.
You’ll find more details here on Facebook.
Frenetic Tuesdays at The Cellar Nightclub is stepping steps things up in the world of live music and erotic dance this Tuesday, pairing local world music band Rakkab with some beautiful long form bellydance sets. And performing those sets are the following amazing performers: Mousai, Dani, Tamara, Theo, Karyn, LelNahar, Pocket Venus, Kiya, and Cheryl. And all of it is hosted by the fabulous funny Liz Oh, perhaps best known as one half of the Master Geek Theatre duo.
$15 gets you dinner and the show, while $10 gets you just the show. It’s hard to find a better deal than that!
See the Facebook event listing for more details.
Whether you’re new to poly or someone who has been living a poly lifetsyle for some time, this Thursday’s Poly 101 discussion on “Coming Out as Poly” is certain to be of interest.
Poly 101 is a local discussion group that meets twice a month to discuss topics of interest to those poly interested or oriented.
For more details see the Facebook event listing.
Vancouver’s long running alternative party for homos Spit called it quits as a regular monthly event early last year, but this Thursday they’re “back with a vengeance.” And like all plans of vengeance it just wouldn’t be right if it wasn’t a surprise.
What does that mean when it comes to this party? It means they aren’t announcing the venue until the day before hand. Sort of old school rave style, sort diabolical plan, sort of the sort of thing these guys do just ’cause they feel like it. Really.
Just $5 to get in to what promises to be one hell of a party.
UPDATE: As of Thursday morning the venue has been announced—150 W. Hastings Street, 3rd floor.

The annual International Day Against Homophobia (IDAH) breakfast brings up to 500 passionate citizens together for a morning of engaging speakers and powerful community conversations.
This year they’re looking at the subject of homophobia and transphobia in sport. Come here featured speakers address the issue, including Olympic Gold Medallist rower Ben Rutledge.
Tickets are $70, and some tables of 10 for $700 are still available. It ain’t cheap, but it’s worth it!

First there was burlesque. Then there was gorelesque. Soon here in Vancouver we were treated to nerdlesque. And now our local burlesque scene brings you WEIRDLESQUE!
From the strange and creative minds of some Vancouver’s weirdest burlesque artists springs this celebration of the strange and wonderful.
Those weird and wonderful performers include Jenny Magenta, Riannaconda, Sparkleplenty, and many more. It’s all hosted by the incomparable Violet Femme.
More details on the night can be found here on Facebook. We look forward to seeing plenty more from this Weirdlesque crew.
Master Geek Theatre, one of the city’s amazing nerdlesque shows which mixes comedy, burlesque and everything ones-geeky-heart-could-desire is having a Star Trek show.
As the crew of MGT put it, “Join Captains Totally-French-For-Real-Pi
With performances by Chesty Larue, Kevin & Mike, Dezi Desire, Adam Zed, Nick Yonge and James Fraser. Plus let’s not forget the hosts themselves, the always funny duo of Cameron Russell and Liz Oh as Picard and Janeway.
So this Saturday night set course for the Cellar. Make it so!
Details can be found here on Facebook.
Jimmy Cummins, the artist perhaps better known as “I, Braineater” for 3 decades now, hosts his biggest ever art show this Saturday evening, and if you’ve ever seen some of his art you know there’s going to more than a few erotically charged pieces in the mix.
Over the years Cummins works has graced canvases, event posters, surfboards and skateboards, and hung one the walls of everyone from the rich and famous to the down and out. And while the openings may have gotten a little earlier in the night they always promise the possibility of something crazy!
For more details see the Facebook event listing.
Local dungeon party Rascal’s hosts the Ms. Rascal’s pageant this Saturday, an beauty pageant for all those who identify as female, whether full time or part time. With categories including Fetish wear, Talent, Q&A, and Glamour wear.
We expect that’s going to be a talent competition unlike most you’ve seen before!
And the competition is followed by Rascal’s regular dungeon party, on some of the best equipment ever to grace a dungeon floor in this city!
Details can be found on the Rascal’s website or on their Fetlife event listing. NOTE: A free Fetlife membership is required to view the site. Fetlife is a social network for the kinky set, Facebook for fetishists, as it were.
Part talk Rosie O’ Donnell show, part Jerry Springer, all glamour and outrage, Tucked and Pluged: Vancouver’s Drag Herstory is a show quite unlike any other you might have seen. Part of the rEvolver Festival, a theatre festival that promises “everything except the Kitchen Sink,” this is certainly a show that promises to deliver on that front.
Hostesses Isolde N. Barron and Peach Cobblah welcome some of the cities most influential queens and drag legends to the stage to unearth the art’s beginnings here in Vancouver.
Erotic Vancouver feels compelled to reprint the show warning here: “The producers take no responsibility for what comes out of the drag queens’ mouths… or below their hemlines.”
Consider yourself warned.
In addition to this weekend’s shows, Tucked and Plucked also runs Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26.
2013 has been the year that Vancouver’s fetish events moved from second tier venues into some truly unique ones. And leading the pack in that regard was NOIR’s move in January to Chapel Arts.
And this Sunday promises to be something special, as the NOIR crew takes devilish delight in throwing the city’s first ever Sunday night fetish party in a former church!
If you’re not afraid of beings struck by lightening there’s no better place in the city to be.
Featuring two dance floors, 4 DJs, and the night’s signature front and centre dungeon space.
Long weekends mean one thing at the Cobalt these days, and that is that the East Van Drag Institution of Apocalypstick will be back to gracing the historic Cobalt stage.
Join hosts Isolde N. Barron as she rushes to the stage from her performace at The Cultch, as she is joined by a fabulous line up of queens here to celebrate her birthday.
Doors at 9pm, show at 11pm, and if we know these queens drinking until dawn!
All the details can be found here on Facebook.
In addition to full weekend passes individual tickets are available to the Friday night opening reception, Saturday’s workshops, and Sunday’s slated events.
That’s it for another week of Hot Sexy Events. As always, if you know of an event you think should have been listed which isn’t let us, and the rest of Vancouver, know about it in a comment below.
Until next week, stay sexy.
