NOIR April Newsletter


April is a big month for fetish in Vancouver, with all of the regular events and the annual Rubbout Fetish Weekend for men. Plus this month we’re happy to be able to list, for the first time, Rope Night under the calendar of events. This monthly gathering has been happening for quite some time, but until now it’s been a semi-private event. However, in the face of many requests from those who simply can’t get enough of rope, the organizer has opened it up.

So this month be sure to get your kink on at some of the exciting events happening in Vancouver. And, of course, we hope that NOIR Fetish Ball will be one of them.


NOIR Fetish Ball
Saturday April 21st

The Cobalt
917 Main Street, Vancouver
9pm – 2am
$12 at the door / $9 before 10pm

The next NOIR Fetish Ball happens on Saturday, April 21st. After a scheduling mix up in March, NOIR returns to the third Saturday of the month in April.  So join us for the kinksters’ fetish night, NOIR Fetish Ball at The Cobalt, for another decadent night of drinking, dancing and dungeon delights.

Remember: NOIR’s Strict Fetish Dress Code is Strictly Enforced. Don’t make our dungeon mistresses sad because they can’t let you in, it breaks their lovingly cruel hearts!

Rubbout XXI

Vancouver’s longest running kink event takes place April 5-8. Lauded by many attendees as on its way to becoming one of the best weekends for fetish in North America, this weekend party for men expands to four days in 2012.

Gay, bi, or even straight but not narrow, if you’re into rubber this long weekend offers something for you.

Visit for full details, and you’ll also find the weekend’s various events listed in the Events Calendar at the end of this newsletter.


Frankie Pankie’s Plight and Plea

Frankie Pankie, NOIR Fetish Ball’s resident photographer, and one of Vancouver’s favourite kinksters, is looking to get some new gear, and he needs your help.

Photographers at local events these days do what they do as a labour of love: the unfortunate reality of having free pictures available online is that very few people buy physical prints. Frankie wants to continue to making Vancouver’s kinky people look their best, and he’d like to tell you how you can help him do that. Read more at


Taboo Sex Fraser Valley Back On

You’ve likely heard that the Taboo Sex Show planned for the Fraser Valley in late March was cancelled, but in the face of community support for the event it’s back on for the weekend of May 11-13, and the various groups that put on the dungeon here in Vancouver, including NOIR Fetish Ball, are excited to once again be a part of it.

If you’d like to volunteer to help man the booth of any of the groups participating please email them directly to offer your support. Details on the show can be found at the CanWest website here—Fraser-Valley-Home
