Charlie and the Fetish Factory

It’s another weekend before Valentine’s Day, and even though you’re now years into adulthood, you’re still a newbie in the liaison department. You think not? Here’s a checklist: Have you ever approached a fem dom? Rubbed elbows with swing-style players? And fetishes — could you name 15? There’s a whole spectrum of them, not just the foot one. And there’s no experience quite like entering the world of kink for a night. The Valentine’s Day Fetish Ball at Sea Monster (2 S. New River Drive W., Fort Lauderdale) is a public play party — but for you first-timers, there’s the nonparticipatory sport: voyeurism. Meet the dress code: Fetish wear is strictly enforced. And, as always, the Fetish Factory upholds the rule: No sex in the club. Just spanking, flogging, leashing, etc., between two consenting adults. The festivities begin at 10 p.m. Prepurchase tickets for $15, or pay $20 at the door (cash only). Call 954-767-6200, or visit
