Texas Fetish Ball

Here’s a real, live fetish: pony play. One partner imitates a domesticated colt, chomping on a bridle, wearing a saddle and prancing around as the rider sits on the pony’s back and whips it. To get a close-up look at pony play, you can Google it (boring!) or see it live at the “corral,” a new addition to the Texas Fetish Ball, the annual convention of the kinky sponsored by Dare Ware (not boring!).

Other forms of, um, entertainment at this year’s Ball include a dungeon equipped by local fetish store Twisted Interiors, a “human buffet” for those with VIP access, and a “performance” from fetish model RubberDoll to the live sounds of Swiss electronic band FAQ. We’re a little fuzzy on what exactly gets eaten at a “human buffet” (we’re not VIPs), but we’re sure the Fetish Ball folks will figure out something tasty. 8 p.m. The Meridian, 1503 Chartres. For information, call 713-953-9393 or visit www.texasfetishball.com. $25 to $40.
Sat., March 22, 8 p.m., 2008
