Kinksters, fetishists: it’s party time

Sagacity’s Birthday Bash to be an eye-opening affair

Ladyfish, head of the Victoria-based Sagacity, is planning on having a Kink-tastic weekend Nov. 4 to 6 at Sagacity's 11th-annual Birthday Bash.

Sagacity’s Birthday Bash to be an eye-opening affair

Kink-curious Victorians beware: you may just have a chance to act out your wildest fantasies this week.

The 11th-annual Sagacity Birthday Bash is whipping this weekend into shape with a three-day schedule of kinktastic fun, Nov. 4 to 6, at the Harbour Towers Hotel.

“This is promising to really be our first sell-out year, and we’ve got a stellar cast of some of the finest kink presenters we’ve ever had in Victoria before, so it’s little wonder,” says Ladyfish, head mistress of the infamous group. “From kinky karaoke to presentations on the emotional and spiritual side of kink, be prepared to be wowed. It’ll be almost like a kink midway.”

For those new to the kink scene, a few ground rules will ease your questions: Sagacity is not a swingers or sex club, but only the open-minded need apply. It’s a place for people with any variety of fetish, kink or alternative lifestyles to come out, embrace their diversity and party it up. For those who have become familiar with the non-profit organization in the 11 years the group has graced Victoria, it’s little wonder the event isn’t for the faint of heart.

The opening Friday night gala includes a “Mind Fudge Presentation,” meant to dupe even the sturdiest of onlookers. Saturday includes a selection of kinky workshops from energy and bondage play to rope tying, submission and needle workshops, and a play party — where you can try out your new techniques with consenting partners — Saturday night. Then on Sunday, kinksters are invited back in the morning for a farewell pancake breakfast and — for some — a last chance to throw on your favourite corsets, PVC and leatherware before packing it away again for another year.

“Even if all you really want to do is watch — and there are those,” says Ladyfish, “this is one event you won’t get to see every day.” M
