Here at Erotic Vancouver we’ve disagreed with those who’ve labelled our home “No Fun City” and this week features some sexy and truly unique events that we think make our case for re-branding as “Oh Fun City!”
In fact this week features an event that Erotic Vancouver editor Reive Doig is already speculating might carry the crown as Erotic Vancouver’s Hot Sexy Event of the Year, the amazingly funny and nerdy-sexy burlesque show Star Wars: A Nude Hope.

Dr. Sketchy’s – The Sane Asylum

Voodoo Pixie shakes things up at the next session. She’ll be all tied up while she gets the pencil treatment- bring your sketchbooks!
Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School is what happens when a simple question is asked- why can’t figure drawing be sexy? Part art class, part cabaret, join Dr. Sketchy for 3 hours of drinking, drawing and decadence!

Improv Against Humanity: An interactive comedy for horrible people FIRST ANNIVERSARY
Where: The Rio Theatre, 1660 East Broadway
When: 8pm start
Erotic Vancouver is pleased to say we were raving about this show before The Georgia Straight, Van City Buzz or others had caught wind of just how funny this very, very politically incorrect show can be.
Join comedy troupe The Fictionals for as they celebrate their first anniversary with an evening that is sure to feature some sexual humour that alternates between tickling your fancy and eliciting your gag reflex! For anyone who thinks funny is sexy you’ll be hard pressed to find a better night out!

The Catnip Club
Where: Pancho’s Rock Club, 10768 King George Hwy, Surrey When: First show at 10pm
Vancouver’s infamous Kitty Nights has taken the show on the road to Surrey, bringing the best of burlesque to the city with a bad reputation! Join host The Purrrfessor and Burgundy Brixx as they welcome to the stage the talents of Lydica DeCarlo, August Wiled and more!

Vancouver Poly 101 Discussion – What are you afraid of?
Where: Yaggers Pub, 433 W. Pender, Vancouver
Vancouver Poly 101 is a group of folks that meets once a month to discuss topics of interest to those in or interested in exploring the world of polyamory.
This Thursday’s discussion might just be the perfect starting point for those who’ve thought about poly, but been scared by some aspect of it. Hear from those intimate with polyamory as they describe what scared and still scares them about the challenges of poly relationships.
The discussion happens at Yagger’s Pub, and takes place in private room in back. The event host arrives around 6pm, and the discussion gets under way at 6:30.

World AIDS Day Luncheon
Where: Terminal City Club, 837 Hastings, Vancouver
While it might not be a Hot Sexy topic, AIDS is still a major concern within sex positive communities. Help A Loving Spoonful raise funds for the important cause of ensuring that those living with AIDS don’t have to live with hunger.
Hosting some of Vancouver’s business elite, community leaders and distinguished personalities, this luxurious luncheon features indulgent cuisine, elegant décor and some of the most precious and unique items presented in the Silent and Live auctions. FEATURING: A Loving Spoonful’s decadent Candy Bar with a festive theme, Winter Wonderland in Amethyst.

Star Wars: A Nude Hope
Where: The Rio Theatre, 1660 E. Broadway, Vancouver
Erotic Vancouver editor Reive Doig had the opportunity to check out a rehearsal for this show last month, and even in it’s unfinished form he declared it in the running for Hot Sexy Event of the Year.
It’s funny as hell, and while its a parody of Star Wars the love for the source material is clearly there. Kudos to writer/director of the show Fairlith Harvey, and the absolutely amazing cast she has assembled. If you were ever a fan of Star Wars, or your a nerdlesque fan with even a passing interest in sci-fi, then this show is a must see!
Get your tickets soon, this show is guaranteed to sell out!
Saturday, November 23
Where: Club Eden, New Wesminster (address available only to attendees)
Greater Vancouver’s best known and best attended swingers club has a party that keeps things simple this Saturday night.
No theme, no costume, just a great way to raise some money for a good cause.
Support the Movember Foundation, and Prostate Cancer awareness, at Club Eden’s first ever “Movember Party”. $1 from every drink sold (to someone showing off their stash – real or fake) will be donated to the Movember Foundation.
In addition to helping raise funds for the Movember cause, Club Eden is also a part of the Kink Cares Winter Charity Drive, whose members are accepting donations of blankets and warm clothes for the Lookout Society to help the homeless in Vancouver, as well as non-perishable food items for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. You’ll find full details on Kink Cares here on Facebook.
You’ll find all the details on the party, including how to register, on the Club Eden website.
Sin City Fetish Night
Where: Blvd 22, 750 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver
Vancouver’s longest running club fetish event has recently been calling Blvd 22 home, and while most folks heading to the Plaza of Nations might be headed for the Waterfront Casion, with Sin City you’re not taking a gamble, you’re guaranteed a sexy good time!
Featuring a dungeon play area, music by the city’s sexiest couple of DJs that are actually a couple, DJ Pandemonium & Evilyn 13, and a dance floor that rivals any in the city for sheer sexiness, it’s a night for anyone wild at heart, or hoping to meet those folks who are!
You’ll find all the details you need to know on their Facebook event listing.
Sunday, November 24
Where: The Biltmore Cabaret, 2755 Prince Edward, Vancouver
When: Doors 8pm, Show 9pm
Sunday’s may be a day of rest for many, but here in “Oh Fun City” you can rely on the fact that there will be something fun to do, and more often than not that Sunday evening fun for those in the know is Kitty Night’s Burlesque.
This Sunday evening join Kitty Night’s host The Purfessor as he welcomes to the stage Silk E Guns, Burgundy Brixx, Eva Nightengale, and Bunny Mewguns to the Biltmore’s stage.
You’ll find the details here on Facebook.
While that’s it for another week’s worth of Hot Sexy Events, we’d like to take this chance for a shameless plug for a party next week that is co-produced by NOIR Events (which EV editor Reive Doig is a partner in along with Kim McAnn) and Mr. Dark, co-creator of the fetish night Sin City. When the folks who between them have created some of the cities sexiest parties, from the BDSM play Vancouver Dungeon, to fetish nights Sin City, Cirque de Sade, and NOIR Fetish Ball, you know that the result will be something stunning even if it’s not a fetish or sex event, per se.
The Midnight Circus happens at Chapel Arts, rapidly coming to be recognized as perhaps the city’s most alternative venue. The evening features Big John Bates band, and the talents of The Midnight Circus Troupe consisting of Burns the Dragon, Kata Sita, and Dirty Blonde.
With everything from side show performances, incredible suspension acts, fortune telling for charity, and more, this promises to be a not to miss night, and with luck will be a semi-regular addition to Vancouver’s night life scene!
