Hot Sexy Events: November 19-25
There’s plenty happening this week, and it’s not all bunched up on Friday and Saturday this time around—although rest assured, there’s plenty happening on the weekend too. We’ve also got a special announcement/request that you’ll read about at the end of this week’s column.
First though, we’d like to answer a few of questions we frequently get about the Hot Sexy Events column.
Why isn’t my favourite regular event listed this week?
We can’t list every event that’s happening. We give precedence one off or irregularly held events, ones that people are less likely to know about. We also give precedence to special nights for regular events. If it’s an Anniversary Party or a special theme night of your favourite event it’s more likely to be listed.
Weekends are particularly busy times. Regular events held earlier in the week are more likely to hit the list than a Munch that is held on a Friday or Saturday.
Finally, if a given week has fewer events you’re more likely to see a regular night of a weekly or monthly event listed. If the week is chock-a-block full, it’s less likely to be on the list.
For event information you alternatively link to dedicated websites, Facebook, and kinky social network, Fetlife. How do you decide what link to provide for information to the event?
Wherever possible we provide a Facebook link, simply because for most people it’s the easiest way for them to get information. We also try to provide a link to dedicated websites when an event has one. Fetlife is the kinky folks answer to Facebook. If only a Fetlife link is provided it’s because they do not have (or we didn’t know about) a Facebook event listing.
If only a Fetlife event listing is provided you can get that info by getting a Fetlife membership; it’s free, and one of the best ways we know of to get to know more kinky folk. Join, you’ll be glad you did.
How can I find out more about events that might not be listed here?
You can visit our various pages for links to the different groups and events in town. Our Kink Page includes listings for Fetish Nights and BDSM Play Parties, and we’ve got a page dedicated to Swingers and Polyamory events, to name just a few of the resources here on Erotic Vancouver.
How do I get my event listed on Hot Sexy Events?
Email us and let us know, and we’ll do our best to get you listed. Info (@) Erotic Vancouver.com. Drop those spaces and the parentheses, they’re just there to beat the spam-bots.
Now, without further ado, onto the week’s listings.
Monday, November 19: Newbie Munch presented by Metro Vancouver Kink.
Munches are casual gatherings of kinky folk to talk about what their interests over drinks or a meal. There’s none of the expectation of a play party or the need to get dressed up to meet dress code as their is at a fetish night; in fact casual dress is the norm, as often times these events are held in family friendly restaurant.
In this case the restaurant is The Tipper, located at 2066 Kingsway. The evening runs from 6:30-8:30pm, and it’s hosted by Metro Vancouver Kink, the first name in BDSM here in Vancouver.
This new munch is specifically aimed at those new to (or hoping to become new to) the kink lifestyle.
Interested in going to a play party, but aren’t sure what to expect (or wear, or do…)
Want to gush about an experience that was new to you, to understanding ears?
Curious about what real kinky lifestyles and relationships are like, beyond what you’ve read in recent blockbuster novels?
MVK is pleased to announce a new event on the 3rd Monday of each month – the Newbie Munch!!
You’ll find more details on the evening here on Fetlife.
Vancouver fabulous (and often risqué) improv grp The Fictionals presents their first-ever Improv Against Humanity Show. We knew this needed a Hot Sexy Event listing the moment we saw the warning: “May contain some strong language, sexual content and mature themes. Viewer discretion is advised.”

Amazing CAH, Fictionals and Cafe Deux Soleils prizes to be won! Plus see the winning card combinations be brought to life by our team of skilled improvisers!

Wednesday, November 21: Vancouver Eastside Munch.

Check out the inaugural weekend of what is sure to become one of the must attend annual events on any alternative leaning folks Calendar, Vancouver Alternative Fashion Week[end]. While it might just be 3 days this year, you can expect this event to G-R-O-W. Given that it’s 2012, and all the madness surrounding the Mayan Calendar bunch, there was no way the organizers, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, couldn’t choose the theme “The End Of The World As We Know It.”
The theme is further broken into three parts for their three consecutive parts: Decadence, Defiance and Delight. Armageddon, at least with this bunch, isn’t all doom and gloom!
Showcasing fashion collections, artworks, performances and musical acts that loosely speak to their cynical narrative, it promises to be a weekend quite unlike any other in Vancouver.
In addition to their weekly drop in classes, the Vancouver Burlesque Centre regularly features workshops by both local and visiting performers and divas. This Saturday afternoon from Lady Jospehine (Montreal) delves into the secrets of that most essential strip tease element for really engaging your audience: breaking the fourth wall.
This class explores techniques for how to reach out to those vague figures sitting behind your blinding stage lights. The class will discuss why this is important and use practical exercises to rehearse the approaches we uncover.
The class runs from 2-3pm and the cost is $25. Pre-registration is required.
Check out the VBC website’s workshops’ page for details.

Special Hot Sexy Announcement: Local actor, producer and jack-of-all-entertainment, not to mention friend of Erotic Vancouver, Christopher Logan has put together ‘dr.a.g’ a coffee table book of the top drag performers captured by fashion and celebrity photographers. The book is published worldwide by Tectum Publishers and available through any book store in the world.
When we say it’s available through any book store in the world we mean they can carry it, but of course not all of them yet do. In particular the big chain book stores haven’t realized yet just how much people need to see this book. And that’s where Chris would like you to help out. Please check out the preview at their website and then call your local big bookstore (Chapters, Barnes And Nobles, etc.) and ask that they carry the book in their store. Ask for ‘dr.a.g.’, spelled for ‘dressed as girl’ (author: Christopher Logan, publisher: Tectum Publishers.)
There will be varied responses including an offer to order the book for you. You do not need to order the book, to make the request, but if you do we’re sure you’ll be glad you did!
If you already know the book you can also help out by writing a review over at Amazon. You’ll find the book listing here.
