Summer Sinfest: Fetish Feast

Whip your William, spank your Sally or bound your Bill among friends at this year's Summer Sinfest: Fetish Feast. "It's for kinksters, by kinksters," says organizer Whitney Menn. The annual leather-based S&M event is getting a dinner-theater makeover to ensure participants don't become spectacles. "There's a lot of people who are looky-loos," Menn says of past, non-S&M attendees who were there just to be shocked and awed. This year's limited-ticket show kicks off with a dinner party featuring burlesque shows, S&M stand-up comedy and kinky magic by leatherman Hardy Haberman. After that, Menn says, partygoers will be welcomed into a room full of "Stations of Imagination," with a St. Andrew's Cross, cages, spanking benches, gallows, dungeons and a pillow-filled cuddle room. Yep, that's right, even leathermen have a soft side. 6 p.m. Ramada Plaza Hotel, 7611 Katy Freeway. For information, visit www.summersinfest.com. $40 to $110.
