Working Out the Kinks

If you want to explore some of the many ways being naughty can feel nice, check out the Fetisch und Kink party tonight at Bender’s Tavern, 314 East 13th Avenue. And don’t worry that you aren’t hardcore enough for the fun: This bash is firmly aimed at newcomers and the curious. “It’s a gateway event, a friendly introduction for people not familiar with the kink lifestyle,” explains host and promoter Jeff Jizz. “We’re trying to do something to appeal to people’s different tastes. It’s more for couples and people who are newer to this stuff, people wanting to see what it is about.”

What you’ll see are six dominatrices from Pavlovia Denver, plus Mistress Alexia Jordon, demonstrating the arts of domination. You’ll also see burlesque by Lady Shanime, shibari (Japanese rope bondage) from Master Goliath, a variety of toys from sponsor Fascinations and dungeon furniture from Mr. JoyToy. What you won’t see is any nudity or sex — this is a public event, after all. While your eyes are fixated on those titillating sights, your ears will be treated to the sounds of local femme-rockers Ezmerelda and Chicago punk-rockers Destroy Everything, plus DJs Foust and Stevyn Ironfeather.

The fun starts tonight at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15, and fetishwear is encouraged but not required. For more information, visit or call 303-861-7070.
