The Ball, which has been titillating San Francisco audiences with stimulating festivities for 26 years, will be held on Saturday evening, June 17, 9 p.m.-3 a.m.
Part masquerade, burlesque and rock concert, the Exotic Erotic Ball consists of non-stop adult entertainment, including live music, DJs, erotic performers, exotic dancers, sideshows, interactive fun, theme rooms, fantasy halls, BDSM demos and fetish fashions. Costume contests yield more than $10,000 in cash and prizes, and adult stars, celebrity guests and more than 100 exhibits keep attendees occupied.
The Exotic Erotic Expo is open to the public on Friday, June 16, 2 p.m.-10 p.m. and Saturday, June 17, noon-6 p.m. Expo activities include panel discussions on 1st Amendment rights with adult performers, moguls, media and special guests; wine tasting with adult film stars; a spiritual oasis with psychic readings and massage; body painting; a classic adult cinema; and a human petting zoo.
Master of Ceremonies Paul Nathan and adult star sidekicks Violet Blue and Raquel Devine will choreograph main stage activities, while the burlesque, fetish and bling-bling stages will provide more specialized entertainment.
Performers are flying in from Berlin, London, Japan, Las Vegas and Miami. Top performers from San Francisco will include burlesque artists The Lollies and Kitten on the Keys.
In October 2005, the Expo in San Francisco paid special tribute to Hustler’s Larry Flynt, presenting him with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his fight to protect personal freedom.
