If you're feeling a little extra naughty this Halloween season, get out your leather bustier and metal-studded choker because you won't want to miss the Victorian Fetish Ball. Hailed as "the best place to see a politician in bondage," this erotic event allows everyone to explore sensuality in a safe environment while celebrating the most outrageous and bizarre holiday of the year. Whips will crack and feathers will fly when more than 101 performers take the multiple stages at Rue 13 (1311 Washington Avenue; www.victorianfetishball.com). Unique entertainment options include presentations by living balloon statues, fire-eaters, exotic belly dancers, contortionists, human marionettes and multiple DJs. The erotic fun begins at 9 p.m. and will last well until the witching hour, so get your tickets now ($25 to $30) before this provocative party sells out. Costumes are mandatory and creativity is encouraged.
