My very first Fetish Factory anniversary party was in 2005, the 10th anniversary of one of the greatest three-day fetish events in the world. I was just beginning to photograph fetish images, and had a few events under my belt… but I didn’t really know what fetish was until my first Fetish Factory party.

The Fetish Weekend consists of four parties, Friday night’s Beat and Greet, Saturday night’s Fetish Ball, Sunday’s pool party, and the Extreme Players Party that same evening. This year, the host hotel was once again the Sheraton, which was sold out very early, and the Hilton nearby. Staying at the host hotel is a wonderful experience, as the entire hotel is populated by people in the fetish scene, and it’s never a problem to walk through the halls in your favorite latex, leather or pvc if you wish. The hotel pool was also the place to be after each night’s party…taking the festivities into the early morning hours.

For the first year that I’ve photographed the anniversary weekend parties, there was no fashion show. Although I missed photographing all of the beautiful new latex designs, the extra hour or so that a fashion show usually takes was better served photographing the guests. Performers this weekend included Masuimi Max, Empress Stah, S1N F!ST3D, and Perish. Masuimi performed at both the Friday night the Beat & Greet Fetish Party, and the main event 15th Anniversary Fetish Ball. Friday night’s performance was a wet and messy striptease show where Masuimi stripped down to a red thong before taking a creamy milk bath on stage. S1N F!ST3D is one of the hottest contortionist, performance artist, extreme pole dancers on the planet – in fact, she may be the ONLY one! I had the opportunity to photograph her during the 2008 Kink in the Caribbean, and was astonished at her energy level. Perish also performed on Friday night, but unfortunately I was beat from the 20 hour drive to Florida and opted to get some much-needed sleep.

Saturday night was the main event of the weekend, the 15th Anniversary Fetish Ball. The venue this year was the beautiful multi-level, beachfront nightclub Exit 66 on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Over 2,000 people typically attend the main party of the weekend, and this night appeared to be no different. Unlike some fetish events, the Fetish Factory has a strict fetish dress code that does not permit black street clothing as an alternative. This is definitely a party with a lot of visual stimulation! Empress Stah kicked off the performances of the night with a breathtaking aerial trapeze and piercing show, swinging out over the audience and nearly taking off my head (quick reflexes allowed me to duck just in time!) Masuimi went from milk to fire, showing off her fire play skills in an erotic burlesque performance. Scattered throughout the venue were other performances including S1N F!ST3D and Bonk and Brit who gave another great fire play show in the outside portion of the club. Finally, the night wrapped up with a spectacular grinder and fire show by fetish model and performer Perish. I missed his Friday night show, but did manage to get some pretty cool shots from this one.

On Sunday there were two parties, the Pervy Pool party in the afternoon and the Extreme Players Party. The annual pool party offers a terrific way to spend the day lounging and socializing in the Florida sun. Some of the more dedicated fetishists showed up in full head to toe latex, including a few total encasements that had to have been quite hot inside. Poolside, Uncle Eric – a Fetish Factory staple – had a lovely redhead girl on a bell cart where she was spanked and flogged…warming her up for the Extreme party later that night no doubt.

The final party of the weekend was the naughtiest by far. If you’re a voyeur or an exhibitionist, this is the party for you. Much of what happened at club Solid Gold in Ft. Lauderdale that night couldn’t be photographed… but I did get a few shots to give you a feel of what it was like. My favorite part of the space was what I would compare to “little Amsterdam” – a row of curtained rooms to each side of a hallway. Inside the rooms, couples, threesomes and moresomes got together for some very kinky play. The sluttier and naughtier people left the curtains open so the gathered crowd could watch, while those who wanted a little more privacy were content to let voyeurs peek in the curtain for a quick thrill. There was also a dungeon section with plenty of spanking, flogging, and other bdsm fun going on.

Once again FetishMovies.com was the main sponsor for the event, without who’s generosity parties like these could not exist. If you’d like to see more photos of the event, go to the Fetish Factory website and search for the 15th anniversary weekend!

German Fetish Ball Weekend 2010 sponsored by FetishMovies.com

This year was the third year that ErosArts was in attendance at the German Fetish Ball, and we were introduced to a new city: Hamburg. In the north of Germany, this town would be our home for five days. At one point we were concerned that it might be longer than that because of that damned Icelandic volcano. Luckily for us, ol’ Eyjafjallajokull held out just long enough for us to get home safely. We hope that our friends who attended the GFB also got home safely.

This year we planned better than in years past and we arrived early enough to get over our jet lag. On our second night, we had a lovely dinner at a local Greek restaurant with some old friends and a few new ones. Notably, this restaurant was quite keen on getting everyone at the table liquored up with at least five free rounds of ouzo shots. (Lady Venus is Greek, and she knew well enough not to suck down that pernicious, licorice-flavored fire water.) Others at our table did not make the same decision, however, and we got louder and louder with each round of liquid flame. One of our dinner guests was the lovely Dante Posh and her polite French slave. Dante was nice enough to let me and several others at the table use the shock collar that was attached to his balls. Damn, I love CBT so much!!!! Some new friends were also at the table. One of them was the folks from Masters in Steel, including the fantastic fetish dog Georgia. (We love you, Georgia!) Also, Katia (not in her typical fabulous latex fetish gear) joined us for our dinner. After quite a lot of good food and a lot of ouzo, we retired for the night.

The next day was the first day of the fetish fair. Oh, the vendors that were there! It was a veritable orgasm of fabulosity! Again, many friends from past GFB weekends were present, including the guys from Latex 101, Honeyhair, Tony Mitchell of TheFetishistas.com, and the lovely Miss Carina of Burlesque Couture. (If you haven’t seen Carina’s hats, you MUST have a look. They are fantastic!) Some other gorgeous latex designers like Rubber 55, HW Design, Cyberesque, and Body Cult also displayed their beautiful and colorful creations. In fact, we found Kumi at the HW Design booth modeling a sexy latex cat suit and, at one point, a transparent latex balloon hood. Michael happily saw Marie Kalista floating around the fair. Also, a new latex company, RubberLuv was there. Chris and Shirley were lovely and there were some gorgeous creations in their store. My favorite was the bright pink skirt that was short in the front and long (to cover one’s large butt, perhaps) in the back.

After a little shopping, we went back to the hotel to rest before the pre-party Fetish Decadence on Friday night. Friday’s party was held at Catonium. For you pony lovers, if you weren’t there, you missed a super hot pony show. Anna Rose was a delightfully decorated pony girl wearing her best pony shoes. Her trainer then came out and began to adorn her in more and more pony gear. First the front pony hooves, then the bit, reins, harness, and tail, and during this time the poor pony girl was electrically stimulated with a toy in her pussy. The final touches were a pony head and saddle, and then her trainer rode his lovely pony around the stage, a fitting end to the pony show. Throughout the Friday night event, everyone was decked out in their very best fetish gear, though again, some folks were not keen on having their photos taken. (People, can you please tell me why you refuse photos if you are TOTALLY COVERED IN LATEX?! I don’t get it.)

Onward.

Last year ErosArts won a European Fetish award. At the Fetish Ball on Saturday night more awards were presented. I’m sorry to say that I don’t yet have the list of this year’s winners, but you will find them on the award website. The trophies were handed out by the beautiful face of the GFB, Marie Kalista. What would a German Fetish Ball be without a fashion show? Some of the best designers showed their newest collections, featuring many great models. Retro uniform looks, corsets in all manner of textiles, pasties, hats, stockings, translucent colored latex, and high heels were featured. Most happily, there was a lot of color in the shows and many different textures in the looks. Designers who presented during this year’s fashion show included: Cyberesque, HMS latex, HW Design, Naucler Design, Rub Addiction, and Velda Lauder.

Interestingly, this year seemed to have quite a good number of gas masks that were meant for children (creepy!), but were made into pouches, cod pieces, and bras. I guess that the fetish designers are into re-purposing and recycling old items. Way to be green!! Michael’s favorite bit of the Saturday night party had to have been massaging the tired feet of Ancilla Tilia. (Michael’s note: Yep – that was the highlight, although I think she was kind of out of it by that time!)

Of course, we’d be remiss if we did not mention that FetishMovies.com was our generous benefactor in supporting our trip to this year’s GFB. They were one of the primary sponsors of the first German Fetish Ball in Hamburg. See you in Hamburg next year!

Jade Vixen gets dirty

The first time I saw Jade Vixen was in 2005 at the Philadelphia Diabolique charity ball. She was a fresh young fetish model who seemed a little shy and looked amazing in latex! We became friends, but I only photographed her once in the past five years. Since that time, Jade has gone on to become pretty well known in the fetish and mainstream modeling world. She’s appeared in Penthouse magazine, and won the Howard Stern “Strongest Naked Woman” contest in 2009 (that’s just funny), was a Dominatrix for a while, and is now a world renowned fetish model.

I finally had the chance to work with Jade again a few weeks ago, and photographed her in my friends dirty, filthy garage. The contrast between the engines, tires, and car parts with gorgeous Jade in her sexy red and blue latex inspired some pretty cool images. To see more of Jade, visit her website JadeVixen.com

I was looking through some old photos the other day, and came across this terrific set from Kink in the Caribbean 2008 where I was invited to photograph for an entire week at Hedonism in Jamaica. Scrolling through the huge set of photos, I realized that there were quite a few sets that I never had the chance to edit and put up on ErosArtist.com.
This set is of the very talented performer, S1N F!ST3D (Sin Fisted for those of you who need a little help). This set is a very pretty latex hood, mask and coral pink dress that Sin wore for our impromptu shoot.

Sin is an international performer, extreme aerial pole dancer, contortionist, model & muse. You can find her here:
