Exotica 2 Detroit (Event Review)

Walking through the doors of the Leland Hotel in Detroit is like stepping from a black and white movie on the streets of Detroit in gloomy November and into an early 20th century setting. But as you walk up the stairs and through the curtains of the Exotica expo, you enter a world of sex toys, beauties, colorfully dressed models, fetish enthusiasts, and even some average looking people just looking to find something colorful and unique in such a grey town.

    Past guests have used words like “overwhelming” and “outrageous” to describe EXOTICA fetish weekends. The product of international fetish model Vena and circus hellion Chaos, this erotic event has quickly become one of the top fetish weekends in the United States and compulsory for any avid fan of international pervy parties. November 7 – 9th, 2008 is EXOTICA DETROIT 4 FEATURING SKIN TWO hosted by Tim Woodward, publisher of Skin Two Magazine. Former Exotica hostess Emily Marilyn returns to host the VIP Room, joined by Ruby Luster.

    The featured guests confirmed so far reads like a “Who’s Who” of prominent fetish personalities from around the world including Angela Ryan, Mistress Persephone, Perry Gallagher, Noir Halo, Vivian Ireene Pierce, Nicotine, London Shadows, Evelyn Rose, We Are Latex, and many more confirming each day.

    The 3 day expo will feature dozens of vendor booths displaying the best in fetish clothing, adult toys, erotica, art, jewelry, and even smoking accessories. Half a dozen afternoon workshops are presented each day by experts such as renowned photographers Steve Diet Goedde and Larry Bradby. BDSM educators Nawa G and Lil J, Charley B, Sir Gary, Sir Rick, Lynne Grant and Lady Cocoa will also host workshops on subjects ranging from Whip Play to Rope Suspension. Don Sir, Mr Long Beach Leather 2007, will host 3 workshops on a broad range of erotic and BDSM related subjects. Therapist Andrea Adams-Miller as well as Professional Dominatrix and Educator Aradia Ardor will also host workshops on the science and philosophy of Sex and Erotic Play. For those who prefer to play or want to practice what they learned in the workshops, a 1,000 square foot public dungeon play area will also be available to EXOTICA guests all day long.

    EXOTICA 4 will also mark the official debuts of latex couture designer Frenchy LaRue and fetishwear designer Hilary’s Vanity. Joining them in the fashion shows will be designers Ego Assassin, Ceres Moon, House of Bias, Leather Realm, NooMoon, Grey Gargoyle and Exquisite Restraint Corsets. Friday night’s fashion shows and party SLICK! will be located inside Clutch Cargos, a former church turned concert hall.

    EXOTICA has always been about excess and the previous one featured over 75 performers in 48 stage shows throughout the weekend. Saturday night’s EXOTICA SKIN TWO BALL promises to feature the best of the stage shows with top national acts such as Vena’s Evil Dolls, Chaos Productions, Pain Tribe, and Miss Pussy Kat from America’s Got Talent. And to take advantage of the new half million dollar sound system at the Crofoot Ballroom, EXOTICA’s already enormous lineup of dance DJ’s will be joined by guest DJ’s like Stitch (from the band Mushroomhead), Curse Mackey (My Life With The Thrill Kill Cult and Pigface), and Xris SMack! Those who prefer a more intimate setting can enjoy the VIP Lounge upstairs with a seperate roster of national acts, as well as a play area. In all, four rooms, with different DJ’s playing simultaneously, will entertain guests at Saturday night’s EXOTICA SKIN TWO BALL.

    Local media is expected to be hot on the heels of this crowd. Local newspapers will also continue to cover the event before and after, as will most international fetish media including Skin Two, Marquis Magazine, Morphine Magazine, AVN (Adult Video Network), XBiz Premiere, and much more. Don’t be surprised to see television cameras from a major cable network television show in attendance.

    The luxurious Auburn Hills Courtyard Marrriot will be the host hotel, offering all Exotica guests a huge discount off room rates, as well as a complimentary shuttle bus between all event venues throughout the day and night. Be sure to book your tickets early though as attendance is expected to reach capacity.

    Please note that EXOTICA is a pansexual event that promotes tolerance and acceptance of all lifestyles. Except for approved media, no cameras are allowed during the night time events, and only in limited areas during the daytime.
