Back to All Events



People are into some weird stuff, eh? But really it’s all relative. To quote 2018 panelist Bernie Newton, “It’s only kinky if you don’t do it very often.”

Are “kinks” and “fetishes” just different words for the same things? What’s up with the ones that get some people off but seem not-even-remotely sexual to others? If your partner doesn’t share your kink, what do you do? What if they have a fetish you find repulsive, then what?? And how do you know if you’re into something you’ve never tried?

Help us kick off our 2019 lineup with this fun, juicy topic and maybe learn a bit about yourself or your relationship(s)!

This and ALL V&V events are open to all genders, orientations, ages (18+), races and abilities. There is a gender neutral restroom and wheelchair accessibility at this location. We try our best to stay away from a heteronormative, cis-normative, white-normative narrative. And we're always learning and growing!

TICKETS: Tickets are $10 online in advance or $15 at the door. If you really want to attend but can’t afford those rates, send us a message and we’ll put you on the guest list. We don’t want anyone to miss out on good, sex-positive info just because they can’t afford it right now! Purchase tickets HERE.
