Ladies and Lechers

Get out your gimp suit, leash, and nipple clamps. The Fetish Factory is throwing its “16-Year Anniversary Fetish Weekend,” a celebration of kink that attracts committed pervs from around the world to the Hilton at Fort Laud’s airport and the Sheraton at 1825 Griffin Road. Friday starts in the Sheraton’s lobby with a meet-and-greet from 8 to 10 p.m. — which then officially becomes a “Beat and Greet,” as people are bused to the Sky Nightclub for a smutty party that rages until 3 a.m., with performances by world-renowned fetish models. RSVP and obey the dress code, bitch. On Saturday, the party moves to the beachfront Exit 66 Nightclub (219 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) for a DJ’d bash from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. that has been known to bring in more that 2,000 well-dressed deviants. That afternoon, the Sheraton hosts workshops on fetish safety, including “interactive stations” for “rope and scarf bondage,” “corporal punishment and impact,” and “genitorture.” Sunday features a hard-core party for seasoned fetishists only; for the milder, there’s a pool party at the Sheraton.

The “16-Year Anniversary Fetish Weekend” runs from Friday to Sunday, and locations and ticket prices vary by event. For all the details, call 954-563-5777, or visit
