Taboo Heart Breaker's Masquerade & Fetish Ball at Firestone Live




Saturday, Feb. 16 – Taboo Heart Breaker's Masquerade & Fetish Ball

9 p.m.

Firestone Live

578 N. Orange Ave.



No, Halloween hasn’t come early – what you’ll see at Firestone Live this weekend are fetishists gathering for NightSide Productions’ Heart Breaker’s Ball. It’s their first time in Orlando (after throwing these kinds of parties in Tampa). This shindig, however, is not your typical ball-gown-wearing event. Enter, if you will, the Castle, a forbidding room where you’ll find a crack-whipping dom decked out in leather panties with electrical tape X-ing out her nipples. Then, step into the Dungeon Room where you can unleash all your freakish fantasies with the open-play fetish equipment. Watch burlesque performances while tied up if you so desire, or be mesmerized by Cirque-style aerial performers and stilt walkers. Orlando’s DJs KC Killjoy and DJ Rob Bates, along with Tampa’s DJ Sean and Dystopic, will spin background noise. Grab your handcuffs from the top drawer, dust off those leather chaps in the back of your closet and get ready for maximum pleasure. – Shelby England
