Exile 4 Fetish Ball fundraiser: Kink for a Cause

By February 02, 2016



By Brent Heinze

The Exile 4 Fetish Ball exploded Saturday, August 29 at the Exdo Events Center and delivered more mischief than ever before. This event featured some of Colorado’s finest performers, vendors, and participants. Each year, hundreds of people come together in celebration of the fetish, kink, and Leather communities. All performers and support staff volunteered their time and talents to make this event happen.

The Colorado non-profit company Lokusdor Productions creates events like these with a community engagement focus and a fundraising mission. In the past two years, they have donated over $26,000 to local and national charitable organizations while promoting their mission of sex-positive messaging for everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression.

Through their efforts, a total of $10,000 was donated from this single event. This year, their beneficiaries included Leather Magick, Leather Archives & Museum, Denver boys and girls of Leather, and the Gender Identity Center of Colorado. Through sponsorships provided by Romantix, Bear Things, Folsom Street Events, Mr. S Leathers, Out Front, Exdo Events Center, Pleasures at the Park, Denver Eagle, and Thunder in the Mountains, all funds raised that evening went directly to the supported organizations providing advocacy and support for communities in need.

The Exile 4 Fetish Ball series has featured past performances including rope bondage, fire, impact play, wax, boot worship, hook and rope suspensions, burlesque, domination, aerial erotica, and rubber inflatables. This year, they added some amazing new performances to entice the audience and whip them into a frenzy. Offerings from Denver Bound, Femmes Verbose, Tyger Yoshi, Kaleidoscope Circus Arts, Domina Elle, Justin Daniels, High Flydelity, Nadja, Jill Scot, Faded Freakshow, Master Rex, Kouger DeVille, Pearl Derriere, Mythica von Griffin, and many others made this event an entertaining way to spend an evening around a great group of people.

In addition to large performances, there were DJs, live music, performance art, vendors selling sexy products, and opportunities for participants to get involved with the action. Smaller “tasting” opportunities were offered by many local educators and performers to give people a chance to experience some interesting sensations.

This annual event is geared for everyone from those curious about kink to individuals who are quite experienced in the pleasure of fetish play. Participants witness a sea of leather guys, kinky women, furry bears, goths, punks, gender-neutral and fluid individuals, gay, straight, pan, puppies, kitties, ponies, piggies, and a variety of people that defy inclusion in a single group.
