The Exotic Erotic Ball

The Exotic Erotic Ball is unquestionably the San Francisco area’s largest indoor erotic event, drawing upwards of 20,000 people in recent years. It’s a giant erotic freakshow held at the Cow Palace (the same place they hold gun shows, car shows and garden expos). The freakiness is more or less evenly divided between the onstage entertainment and the guests, who dress to the nines in everything from everything to nothing.

In the weeks leading up to this event, attendees this year were promised an event that was more intense, more extreme than ever — the kind of sensory overload the Bay Area alone can provide. There were going to be umpteen stages, a zillion acts, a gazillion people, a quintillion booths; rock ‘n’ roll, electroclash, slutty hiphop, bikers, trikers, pikers; you could get lap dances, table dances, pole dances, burlesque dancers, spank dancers, monkey spankers, aaaaaahhhh!!!! It was enough to make a jaded San Franciscan like myself take a Xanax and go to bed with a cup of tea, Earl Grey, hot, and the latest issue of The Atlantic Monthly.
