It is time again to get your rubber, leather, sports or other fetish outfits out of the closet for the Amsterdam Fetish Pride. The Fetish Pride runs from May 25 to May 29. This sixth edition includes events at The Cuckoo’s Nest, Club Church, Dirty Dicks, the Eagle Amsterdam, and The Web. Fetish stores Black Body, Mister B, RoB, and hairdresser Cuts & Curls will also do their bit in making this yet another successful Fetish Pride.
Although it is the most visible form, a fetish does not necessarily involve certain clothes or materials, but can also be about sexual practices. To cater for this, Fetish Pride has a delightful perverse start on May 25 in the Dirty Dicks, Warmoesstraat 86, with the monthly “Golden Shower Party,” starting at 20:00. To let the water flow excessively, beer and soft drinks only are three euros for this occasion. Those with different desires can visit Club Church, Kerkstraat 52, from 22:00 onwards, where the extravagant Hopelezz family rules the “Blue Fetish.” With exceptional performances, visitors can expect wild and eccentric misfits.
On Friday, May 26, the party starts at 20:00 with the “Beer Bust” in The Web, Sint Jacobsstraat 6. Here, DJ Bramsterdam and DJ Big General are spinning. Around the corner in The Cuckoo’s Nest, Nieuwezijdse Kolk 6, the first of three “Fetish Nest” nights are organised. Everyone can indulge in his wildest fetish fantasy in the huge basement after a drink at the bar.
Here, the basement is the legendary cruise space that, especially for Fetish Pride, is equipped with a sling and other equipment. DJ Mally Clark is spinning there. Those who like a change can visit “(Z)onderbroek” at Club Church from 22:00, where leather, rubber or sportswear is taken off for dancing and cruising in or without (!) underwear. Here you can expect, as the organisation says, “lots of guys with boners in their briefs.”
Mister Rubber Contest
During Fetish Pride the Mr Rubber Netherlands Foundation will organise the annual election of its Dutch rubber scene representative. At a rubber-only night on Friday (21:00) in the Eagle Amsterdam, Warmoesstraat 90, the current Mr Rubber, Dirk Gear, will give his stepping down speech. Afterwards, the rubber men in the audience and the jury will elect the first round candidates for the title Mr Rubber Netherlands 2017.
This is done in an entertaining and lively show the visitors appreciate and have come to know so well. It will be a social event among rubber men, although the basement will also see some action! This year, the jury will consist, among others, of Javi, the current Mr Rubber Spain, and Preston So, Mr International Rubber 2017, flown in especially from New York City.
The final will take place on Saturday night (22:00-23:00) during “Invasion,” Amsterdam Fetish Pride’s main party. The Mr Rubber election is known for its extravagant extra’s, such as vacuum cubes, driving cages, pony play carts, etc. However, chances are that the organisation will surpass last year’s edition in kinky eccentricity, so don’t miss out! The candidates will then be presented once more, and Mister Rubber Netherlands 2017 will be announced.
This rubber spectacle, however, will only be the kick-off of “Invasion,” as it is this Pride’s main party where all fetish-lovers can get their money’s worth. “Invasion” takes place in Undercurrent, Papaverweg 265, at the NDSM-terrein.
This location can accommodate over a thousand visitors and is just ten minutes from Amsterdam Central Station. Take the ferry from the station to the Buiksloterweg, followed by a free shuttle that gets you there within minutes.
DJ RW from the Netherlands and DJ T&T (Topher & Trippy) from France will be spinning, offering great mixes. Go-go dancers and live shows by international porn stars Brock Hatcher and Michael Duncan will provide the necessary pit-stop entertainment. Also, there is a large dark room with all your heart’s desire, from slings and beds to benches. “Invasion” truly offers the opportunity to go wild. The party lasts until the wee small hours, and the admission fee is 25.00 euros presale and 30.00 euros at the door. See www.invasionparty.com.
But there is more. The Web will host a fetish flea market on Saturday from 13:00, and the Amsterdam Kink Academy traditionally will organise a number of workshops, while the participating businesses offer events not mentioned above.
