LOS ANGELES—Now marking its 10-year anniversary, the Bondage Ball takes place this Wednesday on Independence Eve. Organizers invite fetish fans to come "celebrate the freedom to be enslaved" at a mega event in a 55,000-square-foot space in downtown Los Angeles, featuring bands, fetish models, a slave stage and “epic debauchery.”
The Bondage Ball, reputedly the biggest fetish event in America, will take place from 9:30 p.m. to 3 a.m on July 3 at 333Live, located at 333 S. Boylston St., Los Angeles, 90017.
Doms, subs, steampunks, burners, furries, fetishists, slave and sluts will roam through the space, with entertainment provided by 10 local clubs and professional dungeon play areas organized by DungeonWest and Sanctuary Studios LAX. In addition to DJ music and dancing, there will be stage shows and roving performers.
Topping the bill are adult superstar Tera Patrick and rock god Dave Navarro. Patrick will be reigning in a space sponsored by Girls and Corpses magazine. The Girls and Corpses cover girl will be signing with Corpsy at the ball.

Patrick and Corpsy (aka Robert Rhine, the magazine's "deaditor") both have been cast in the TomCat Films horror movie Angel of Darkness, shooting in the fall of 2013.
Patrick begins production this month on her second mainstream film, Live Nude Girls, and is working with Girls and Corpses magazine on numerous projects and events, including signing July 17-21 at Comic-Con in San Diego in the Girls and Corpses booth (No. 1528). Patrick also will sign with Girls and Corpses at ScareLA on August 10 and 11 alongside horror icon Sid Haig (The Devil's Rejects) and Shawna Kenney (author of I Was a Teenage Dominatrix).
Rhine has appeared this year in the following films: Snake Club, The Pandora Experiment, Nazi Dawn, Vampire Sorority 3D, Strangely in Love, Disaster Wars and Terror Toons 3.
