Exotica Detroit


The Midwest truly experienced a Cultural Explosion the weekend of April 27 as EXOTICA took control of the Leland House hotel in downtown Detroit and turned it in to a unique world of fetishistic indulgence.

EXOTICA brought together the worlds of fetish, BDSM, and all forms of eroticism under one unified roof. The energy created by such an unprecedented combination was incredible, and the historic Leland House hotel brought an atmosphere to the event that that was undeniable… one guest told me that she, “felt like a princess from the 1920’s every time I walked through the hotel’s grand lobby.” Seeing the event’s guests promenading through the hotel in full fetish regalia, looking as gorgeous as could be, was a breathtaking experience.

The sexiness began on Friday, and continued almost non-stop through Sunday afternoon, with vending, performances and workshops by day, and more performances and the hottest parties I’ve seen in a long time by night.

Flying in from Los Angeles to host EXOTICA was acclaimed fetish model and promoter Vena, bringing her usual charm, beauty, and grace to the event, making EXOTICA a truly elegant occasion. Clad in a never ending flow of outfits from Lust Latex Designs and Azrael’s Accomplice Designs, her exquisite sense of fashion raised the high water mark yet again, bringing chic sophistication to EXOTICA.
