This Saturday, Aug. 19 will mark the return of El Paso’s hottest adult party, Q-Rotica, the city’s premiere erotic fetish ball that heats up The Red Parrot.
The evening will be a sizzling showcase of some of the kink community’s talented visionaries, including a professional dominatrix, bondage expert, singing group and bondage aerialist.
“We’re providing the stage entertainment that surpasses the vanilla crowd,” said Sabine Green, creative director at Nequim Studio. “We’ve spent the last four years creating a safe space through Nequim studios for all kinds of counter culture groups – the BDSM and kink community, the LGBTQ community – so this event is a natural part of that.” (For those who are little green to the kink lexicon, BDSM stands for bondage, discipline, dominance and submission/sadomasochism.)
Saturday’s demonstrations and shows are meant to give a glimpse into the world of BDSM and kink, advocating for people who are not only already in the lifestyle, but for those who are simply curious and looking for more items to add to their naughty menu.
“I think – and I could be wrong – we’re the only ones in El Paso who have pushed adult sex education in a safe environment and because of that, and through the workshops and classes we’ve given here, we’ve created a huge network that has given us access to a lot of people who would normally not come out of the closet,” said owner and principal photographer of Nequim, Frank Villasana. “Because they trust us and have grown to respect us, they’re willing to collaborate and do an event like this.”
Q-Rotica is also a pre-cursor to Taboo II, Nequim’s birthday celebration on Nov. 4th, which will feature BDSM, fetish and kink performers.
For Darius Belcher, owner of The Red Parrot, hosting Q-Rotica is a no-brainer, and part of his vision of bringing the hottest adult entertainment to the city.
“What we can offer for this event is stability and reputation,” he said. “The Red Parrot has been around for 23 years and we’re ranked as one of the country’s top clubs.”
Belcher is not only providing the space for the event, but some of his dancers, any of whom he said he’d “stack against any club in the country.”
The evening’s featured dancer will be adult film star Richelle Ryan, who once held the title “Adult Movie Feature Entertainer of the Year.”
The evening’s lineup also includes a professional Dominatrix show featuring Mistress Ruby and her submissive, John Crowe. She’s been spanking, whipping and humiliating for seven years and specializes in all manners of fetish, training and domination.
“My show will reflect the dynamic of what happens behind closed doors,” she said of her show.
The R&B/soul ensemble Somethin 4 The Fellas, bills itself as a “movement for liberated women.” The quintet of luscious ladies will thrill the crowd with their tantalizing elegance, class and talent.
DK Lthrmn has more than 20 years of experience in Shibari, the ancient Japanese art of knot tying. He will be on-hand all night giving demonstrations to the bold, adventurous and curious. Bondage aerialist Karolyn Nevarez and some of her crew will perform titillating, gravity-defying feats while suspended from silk straps and the lyra, an aerial ring.
Q-Rotica will also feature an Exploratorium, a designated area in the back of the club that is a veritable garden of earthly delights featuring Hell Paso authentic custom bondage gear, Adult Video Warehouse, and a photo booth. All of the Taboo performers will be available for photos in the Exploratorium.
KLAQ’s Buzz Adams will host different stimulating events like a kissing contest and the Price Is Right to tease the audience – rounding off what’s sure to be a night that will leave attendees salaciously inspired.
