FESTIVAL | Erotic Arts Festival


What's your fetish? Do you like biting, or stripping, or role play, or simply being tied up every once in a while? No matter what your sexual preference, this weekend's Rochester Erotic Arts Festival has only one requirement: that you like doing it in public.

On Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6, at the Radisson Riverside Hotel (120 E. Main St.), you can get your freak on with two full days of super sexy art, workshops, dances, and other titillating activities. Friday's festivities include a Bombshell Bellydance, a Pretty Kitties Burlesque dance, a fire massage, and classes about the swinger life, role play, and the secrets of sex muscles. If you're feeling up for another round, you can come again on Saturday for more dirty dances and wild workshops, as well as cardio stripping, a tattoo contest, artistic piercings, and more. On both days of the festival, there will also be an erotic art show and sale, and special demos and workshops from suspension artist and featured guest Lew Rubens.

The Erotic Arts Festival runs Friday 7 p.m.-midnight and Saturday noon-8 p.m. Tickets are $25 per day at the door, which pays for admission and all workshops. Advance two-day tickets are available for $40 through, where you can also feast your eyes on the full schedule of festival events and times. This festival is only for those 18 and over.
