I’d like to thank EVERYONE who made it out to the 10th Anniversary of The DC Fetish Ball. It was an amazing night w/ some of the best talent the scene has to offer. We had a stunning crowd, beautiful fashion, fantastic entertainment, plus a great level of play & social interaction. No doubt, it was an incredible night to celebrate 10 years in the scene!

As with every event, I’m humbled by the unbelievable talent & dedication that stands by me each year to bring the magic to make it all happen. I thank everyone for their endless support, but most of all I thank my team for making this all possible.

About Us
Richard A.D. (Facebook.com/RichardAD  /  Fetlife-RichardAD):

Your ring leader & host for The DC Fetish Ball. Rick is both highly active in the scene as well as the mad mind behind The Metro Underground. Indeed, the full spectrum of the alternative & adult subculture has been in his blood since he was born. This combined with a full-time career in marketing & promotions (plus a substantial background in event planning), he not only gave birth to efforts with The Metro but soon took the reigns to host some of DC's most anticipated events for the alternative culture.
But make no mistake, a production this large takes an entire team to make it work. I am both humbled & thankful for the incredible group that comes together year after year to create a bit of magic for DC. They are truly the heart & soul that brings the Fetish Ball to life. There are no words to express my gratitude for the talent & tenacity for those that support me.
The DC Fetish Ball: Now celebrating our 10th anniversary! We continue to raise the bar for the level of opulence, elegance & sheer desire in the underground scene. Indeed, we wanted something more for the nation's capitol - an event so hot that it would not only stand as a local icon but would be worthy of national recognition. It is for this that we developed the DC Fetish Ball. The date is set, so mark your calendar for a night you won't want to miss!
