Thursday, April 17
Where: Yagger’s Downtown, 433 West Pender, Vancouver
Polyamory. It’s a subject that seems to come up in the media more and more these days, and while many people are curious about it they’ve got a lot of questions. More than the Wikipedia entry can easily answer. But rest easy – because that’s where Vancouver’s Poly 101 Discussion has you covered.
Every couple of weeks you’ll find them meeting at Yaggers Downtown to cover a topic of those living a polyamorous lifestyle, or those simply curious about it. This Thursday’s discussion covers how to meet polyamorous people, and how to go about dating them once you have. In short, if you’re potentially poly yourself, where do you find other like minded people?
You’ll find this likable and lovable crew of people in the back room at Yagger’s Downtown, from 6pm to 9-ish, with the discussion getting underway about 6:30pm.
Where: Fan Club, 1050 Granville, Vancouver
Ruffone is a party for MEN who like their MEN RUFF.
And all in caps, or at least that’s what the website tell us.
Taking place at Fan Club, a bar that has set itself apart from what you’ll typically find on Granville Street in terms of both it’s decor, reminiscent of New Orleans, and it’s diverse and vibrant event variety.
WIth DJs Brayden Marc, and Vancouver favourite Nick Bertossi.
Where: Steamworks Bathhouse, 1050 Granville, Vancouver
Following hot on the heels of the dancing at ruff:ONE comes the sexy good times that can be had at the official bathhouse after-party, ruff:play, taking place at Steamworks.
That’s Steamworks, the gay bathhouse/sex-club, not the brew pub.
Did you meet someone hot and sexy at Fan Club earlier in the evening? Grab ’em, head to the after party, and see where the night might take you.
Friday, April 18
Where: Y’s Bookstore, 4307 Main Street, Vancouver
Mark Bentley Cohen reads from his new book,
a candid, riveting, erotic account of how a married bisexual man’s coming out to his wife saves their ailing marriage. The book redefines our most dearly-held beliefs about sexuality, monogamy, authenticity, and what it means to truly love someone.
Cohen takes us into his intimate world of sexual exploration as he tries to solve the mystery of his lifelong struggle with bisexuality. After 15 years of marriage, two kids, and illicit experimentation with men behind his wife Gabrielle’s back, Marco confesses it all to her.
But where most folks this confession would be a deal breaker, for them it was the start of an amazing journey.
Tarts & Vicars Event with a Twist
Where: Den Of Pleasure, near Vancouver transit, address provided to attendees
“A Tarts and Vicars Party is a type of British costume party where men are expected to dress as church vicars and women are expected to dress as tarts, which both involve revealing clothing.”
That’s the general idea behind a Tarts & Vicars party, a sort of better predecessor to the “Pimps and Hoes” party we hear so much about (and hopefully all roll our eyes at when we do.) However, this being a party at infamous Den of Pleasure, they’ve decided add their own twist, so instead of the women dressing as tarts they are inviting the men to cross dress as the tart (not mandatory) and women, as they prefer, either a vicar, priest, nun, clergy, or tart; the more provocative the better.
Consider the Den to be like a sexy house party, where you have the freedom to partake in whatever turns you on, and the freedom, of course, to not partake in anything that doesn’t.
So get in contact soon if you’d like to attend – this event will fill up! And be sure to get an appropriate outfit, be it theme, lingerie, or fetish—there’s no street clothing permitted after 9:30pm.
Details on Fetlife
Please note that a free Fetlife membership is required to access the site. Fetlife is the kinky set’s social network, sort of Facebook for Fetishists.
Saturday, April 19
Where: Chapel Arts, 304 Dunlevy Street, Vancouver
From ignoble upstart in 2010, to regularly Vancouver’s largest fetish night, it’s been an amazing journey for NOIR Fetish Ball and it’s partners, Reive and Logik. Based upon the idea that real, up front and centre kink can exist right next to the dance floor, rather than being relegated to the back room—not such a brave move in the days since 50 Shades of Grey came to such popularity, but these guys were doing it before that!
With two dance floors, The Chapel and The Rectory, and music that runs a gamut of styles and tastes, come find out why NOIR has become the club party of choice for those serious about their kink, those who want to play voyeur, and those simply open minded enough to want to be part of a night that is about so much more than costuming.
That being said, NOIR Fetish Ball does have a STRICT Fetish Dress Code, details of which you can find on their website. You’ll perhaps get a little more leeway with some sexy cos-play for this party, however, given that it’s the same weekend as Fan Expo and there is certainly some cross over between the crowds.
Fan Expo Afterparty
Where: Five Sixty, 560 Seymour Street, Vancouver
For nerds, geeks, and those who love them Vancouver’s Fan Expo is the place to be this weekend, and afterwards there’s no bigger party than Fan Expo After Party presented by Rue Morgue and The Ghostbusters of BC. While this might not be the official afterparty, it’s several times the size and a fraction of the price of the one where you aren’t allowed to ask for autographs in any case!
Plus 50% of the proceeds go to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, a charity near and dear to the heart of Erotic Vancouver Editor Reive, so you know this party needed to be on this weeks list.
Plus, y’know, superhero costumes are perhaps the one remaining sexy use of spandex left…
Where: Heaven’s Door, 1216 Bute Street, Vancouver
For those looking for their leather and fetish to be a little more male centric, Davie Street’s latest hot spot Heaven’s Door presents The Vatican.
While we can’t say that this is a strictly fetish and leather event, the website states that “street clothes will be frowned upon.” And trust us, you do not want to upset the bears!
With Portland DJ Jakob Jay playing tirbal, house, progressive and vocal, while the day before may have been Good Friday, you can expect this night to be a Better Saturday!

Kitty Night’s Go Ask Alice!
Where: Biltmore Cabaret, 2755 Prince Edward, Vancouver
When: Doors 8:00pm Show 9:00pm
According to the minds behind Canada’s most famous burlesque party, Kitty Nights, The Easter bunny is bringing us big basket of special grass this year as Easter lands on another special date – so they’re slipping down his rabbit hole and cooking up a crazy, psychedelic night of fun for EVERYONE by saying GO ASK ALICE!
