X-Ball was originally intended to be a one night party to feed the needs of kinky Midwesterners while they prepared for the 3 day fetish erotic festival Exotica. However, since its inception, this fetish extravaganza has taken a life of its own and earned the unofficial title of “Detroit’s Fetish Ball”.
The brainchild of kinky ringmaster Chaos and event promoter/fetish model Vena (www.madaboutvena.com), X-Ball takes place twice a year, right in between each Exotica. Saturday August 2nd welcomes the 3rd X-Ball Detroit, returning once again to the newly remodeled Labyrinth Nightclub and Studio 54 lounge at the historic, and very haunted, Leland Hotel downtown Detroit.
As an added feature, the entire weekend also plays host to the Detroit Erotic Arts Collaborative (www.dvsdetroit.com/deac) hosted by DVS Photography (www.dvsdetroit.com). This 2 day erotic photoshoot and exhibit welcomes 100 models and photographers from all over the country and offers some of the most unique shooting locations in the country.
Flying in from Hollywood , CA to host X-Ball 3 is fetish model Noir Halo (www.noirhalo.com), who originally hails from Detroit . The event also features performances by Detroit’s own powerhouse talent agency and performance troupe Chaos Productions, NooMoon Tribe of New Orleans , as well as a fashion show by rave/club wear designer Vinyl Dolls (www.vinyldolls.net) of Hollywood , CA.
For those who prefer a more intimate atmosphere, $10 VIP upgrades can also be purchased for the Studio 54 VIP Lounge upstairs hosted by Detroit ’s own Jessica Rabbit.
X-Ball’s sexy gogo girls and guys will be in the main room to add to the eye candy. Ohio’s DJ Darks Choir will be keeping the main dance floor packed with Industrial and Techno, while local favorite DJ Alexi spins down tempo ambient in the VIP lounge upstairs. Fans of Gothic underground subculture will get a special treat as guest DJ London Shadows flies in specifically to spin at this event.
Other VIP guests attending include fetish photographer Larry Bradby (www.larrybradbyphoto.com), and fetish model Nicotine (www.modelnicotine.com).
Guests are encouraged to use the public play area complete with an assortment of bondage furniture. There is no enforced dress code, but fashionable fetish or erotic wear is strongly suggested. And because clothing designer Leather Realm and whip specialist Cat O Nine Tails will have booths set up in the club, there’s no excuse not to have anything to wear, or a lack of choice for floggers.
Doors open at 9pm and event organizers have promised to keep things going until at least 3am. For more information, or for online ticket sales, please visit the official X-BALL website at: www.exoticadetroit.com/xball.php
