Love Hurts

Nothing says “I love you” more than strapping your beau to a stainless steel bondage apparatus and spanking him with a studded paddle until he screams “banana!” (It’s your safe word.) If that’s your bag, baby, head to Club Purgatory tonight at 10 for the Valentine’s Fetish Ball, sponsored by the Fetish Factory. The whole club will be done up in a kinky Valentine’s theme, and there will be hundreds of fellow fetishists to tickle, pinch, spank, and flog (as long as it’s safe and consensual, of course). Come dressed appropriately to 1000 W. State Rd. 84 in Fort Lauderdale. Preorder tickets for $15 at thefetishparty.com, or pick them up for $10 at the Fetish Factory.
