EXOTICA 3: Erotic Expo and Parties in Detroit
By Rollerblade on April 10, 2008
Do you only think of tractors and cows when you think of the American Midwest? On April 25th through the 27th, event promoters Ally Stapleton and Vena show the world again that the Midwest can perv it up with the best with the third running of Exotica Detroit. Hosted by internationally known model Emily Marilyn, and featuring returning special guest artist Lithium Picnic, this three day erotic expo features two convention halls filled with display booths, educational workshops, and networking parties for fetish photographers & models.
Looking for the perfect corset for him, or lingerie for her? A beautiful St Andrew’s Cross to fill your private dungeon? Or “his and hers” sex toys? Exotica always features display booths from the most respected fetish and erotic companies from across the U.S. As with previous Exotica’s, workshops will feature subjects such as Liquid Latex, Piercing Basics, Belly Dancing, Tantra, Overcoming Sexual Hangups, and Sex Toys, and much more, all taught by well known educators. Saturday and Sunday afternoons also feature the Detroit Arts Collaborative, a fine art nude and fetish photography shoot hosted by local erotic artist DVS.
Topping off the first day of festivities is the Friday night Fashion Show, featuring an eclectic blend of erotic to fetish wear from internationally known designers. 6 DJ’s will take turns on the decks to keep the dance floor packed at the 25,000 sq ft City Club, while performers by Chaos Productions Talent and Model Agency take to the stage all night long. The same venue hosts Saturday night’s Erotic Masquerade Ball, featuring performances nearing a dozen by Emily Marilyn, Miss Pussy Kat Burlesque, Chaos Productions, Pain Tribe, Noir Halo and many more. For those who prefer a more intimate setting, the luxurious VIP room hosted by models Vivian Ireene Pierce and Evelyn Rose features yet more shows, as well as naked buffet girls.
As an added feature, all these festivities take place in the notoriously haunted Leland Hotel. Because all rooms in this host hotel have already been sold out, organizers have arranged for discounted rates for event guests at additional hotels nearby.
