It’s been one year since I photographed my first Fetish Factory party in south Florida. Since that time I’ve attended and photographed 26 different parties and adult conventions around the globe, including the Rubber Ball in London, Montreal Fetish Weekend, Nuit Demonia in Paris, and the LA Kink Ball to name a few. I can now say with some authority, that the Fetish Factory throws one of the best fetish events in the world!
Each year on Memorial day weekend, the Fetish Factory hosts its anniversary party. This three day event has been sponsored by FetishMovies.com for the past few years, and once again they graciously invited me to photograph the parties for them. I stayed at the host hotel, where hundreds of other lifestylers gathered. Transportation was provided to and from the parties each night, as well as to the Fetish Factory store throughout the day. The store alone is worth the trip to Ft. Lauderdale. They stock all top designers of latex and vinyl… from high-fashion to bizarre, and carry an incredible array of alternative clubwear, footwear, accessories, toys, media and much more.
Friday night’s Beat & Greet Lounge kicked off the weekend, with a high-energy crowd that was ready to play! This year the open-air patio was the place to be, where the latex and leather-clad crowd mingled, partied, and played well into the early morning hours. One thing that makes a Fetish Factory party unique is the willingness of the players to be photographed. It’s typical for most people to shy away from the camera when they’re playing, fearful of a comprising picture of them engaging spanking, bondage, or some other BDSM play. But the regular players who attend the monthly Fetish Factory parties are exhibitionists who welcome the chance to be photographed in action. Memorable scenes of the night included three girls trampling a bound and blindfolded slave in their high heels, and a beautiful blonde Domme administering a bare-ass spanking with her wooden paddle. I edited my photos from the night down to about 140 of the best images in the gallery that you can find here.
Saturday night was the main event of the weekend, the Anniversary Fetish Ball held at Club Cinema in Pompano Beach. This multi-level venue was converted into a Fetish wonderland, complete with plenty of play areas set up throughout the club. I spent the first couple of hours walking through the club photographing party-goers and players. At one point I shot a really hot FemDom scene between a muscle bound Domme and her equally pumped up slave. Later I was invited to step into the dressing room for a bit where the performers were preparing for the show. On the main stage, Mistress of Ceremonies Bianca Beauchamp announced that the Demask fashion show was about to begin.
The show went flawlessly, as each model strutted the stage in the latest Demask latex. In between the two-part fashion show, Master Luk and Mistress Mai from Montreal did a sinful performance with their disobedient slaves in a Demask Nun and Preist Outfit. Following the second part of the Demask show, performances by Darenzia and Chain Goddess Brandy were a prelude for the grand finale. To the rhythm of Taiko drummers, Rebecca of RebeccasRubberRoom.com entered wearing a black latex geisha robe designed by Polymorphe, accompanied by 2 acrobatic Ninjas. She stripped down to a pure white catsuit by Polymorphe and demonstrated her skills with flammable substances.
Just after the Rebecca’s performance, it was suddenly announced that the club was being forced to close two hours early! Although the Fetish Factory anniversary parties have been held at that venue for years, the city ordinance requiring nightclubs to close by 2:00 am was being enforced for the first time. The massive crowd was suddenly dispersed at the height of party-mode! With much of the group being shuttled back to the hotel, you can imagine what the mood was like by the time they were all back. What followed that evening was something extraordinary. The rooms all faced one another 8 or 9 stories high with a courtyard in the middle. Looking out across the balconies, you could see room after room of people still dressed and ready to party. Strolling through the halls, the night became a fetish-crawl as people floated from room to room, the loyal fetishists refusing to surrender to the events of the night. The party kept going until well into the morning hours.
Sunday was the perfect day to relax before the final party, and the pool party hosted by Fetish Factory was the ideal place to do just that. People came out to the pool to hang out in their latex or swimsuits (or even their latex swimsuits!) and soak in the Florida sun before heading out to the Extreme Player’s Party later that night.
The Fetish Factory Extreme Player’s Party is something that you have to see to believe. With everyone feeling a bit unfulfilled because of Saturday night’s premature evacuation, the energy of the crowd flowed like a palpable wave throughout the room. It was difficult to tear myself away from the scenes scattered about the club, to return to the main stage for a few more performances. Darenzia performed the second part of her show which was cut short the night before. Also on stage this night was suspension artist Alan Falkner, Chain Goddess Brandy, and the Terror Twins.
After the performances I continued to wander around the club, catching photos of Dante Posh using a single-tail whip on her slave or Mistress V from Montreal using a violet wand for a little electro-play. In another area of the club, Goddess Arsine and transgender performer Tara Emery were engaged in a little strap-on play while the crowd looked on. By the end of the evening, I had encountered a number of spankings and floggings, and plenty of bare red asses to make my night complete. I skipped the after party, and head back to the hotel just in time to pack for my morning flight back home.
It’s been an exhausting couple of weeks, visiting Munich, London and South Florida to bring you a taste of the world’s greatest Fetish Events. Keep checking back, as there are still plenty of erotic events taking place this year. The next trip is Toronto for the Toronto Sex Show, followed by Amsterdam for Clinic and then Los Angeles for LA Erotica!
