German Fetish Fair 2011

By on June 10, 2011

German Fetish Ball Weekend is an event you must visit – a programme of eight fetish events over five days in Hamburg, one of Europe’s nicest cities. Venues include Catonium, surely the world’s most impressive dedicated fetish/SM space. There will be a report, with photos, in the next Skin Two magazine, issue 62. Meantime, here’s the story on just one of the events, German Fetish Fair…

This is an impressive two-day retail show, in a purpose built exhibition hall, featuring a wide range of fetish businesses you won’t ever see outside of Germany. The event hotel is three minutes walk away and there are some nice restaurants around the corner. It’s absolutely worth flying over for the fair and a couple of the parties as well.

As you might except from Germans, the quality of the latex fashion is high – but most impressive of all are the really super steel bondage accessories. You definitely won’t see that in the UK or USA. Look at RS Metaldesign and SM-Factory – they ship internationally and their products will give lasting pleasure. My favourite was the best nipple clamps I have seen, from SMEQ. If you like nipple clamps, buy these!

Med-Vital are expert suppliers of medical and hygiene supplies. They can advise on what you need to stay safe. Also check out Edel Dildos and Radio Toy.

My two overall favourites at the show were not German, though – they came from from Hampshire and Milan. If you love leather and appreciate fetish design as a serious art for the connoisseur, have a look at Godfrey Knight Designs. For the best funky modern fashion jewellery go to Cristian Dorigatti Design.

There’s a list of selected businesses at the show below. See you for some serious shopping next year.
