Exotic Erotic Ball, San Francisco
What it is: Officially? A giant annual fetish, lingerie, and sexuality party. Unofficially? A chance to let your inner freak come out and play.
Party time: The Saturday night before Halloween. This year's ball is on Saturday, October 28.
The getup: Of the minimal and/or raunchy variety. Be prepared for both men and women in G-strings, garter belts, fishnet body-stockings, leather harnesses, platform heels, and pasties. You'll also see people dressed as naughty nurses, devils and angels, and giant phalluses. Nudity is technically not allowed, but…what can you do? Some people just won't follow rules.
Where it's at: Cow Palace, an arena so huge that it also hosts the Grand National Rodeo and Disney on Ice.
What goes on: Debauchery. Burlesque and drag acts, interactive games like The Wheel of Depravity and Lesbian First Kiss, a "human petting zoo" (participants pictured), and demonstrations in spanking, erotic massage, and nether-region shaving. Subtlety is not the order of the day.
