Frisky Business

Once a year, Arizonans get to turn “You’re into that!?” into “Hey, you’re into that too?” Whips, chains, leather, and lace move from the bedroom onto the stage at the Arizona Fetish Ball.

The event consists of way more than a group of sexual deviants watching girls suspended by their back piercings -- though that’s definitely part of the freaky fun.

Valley-based burlesque troupe Scandalesque will perform, blending vaudevillian-style variety acts and tantalizing dancing, while regular folks get chance to show off their pleather-bound wild sides.

In case you’re not quite ready to slip into that dominatrix get-up, dance out your shyness. Music from Angelspit, VJ Ginger Fresh, Technodrone and other DJs will keep the party pumping through the night.
