Halloween is a big night for kinksters. But why do they love it so much? Writer Kayla Lords investigates all the great things about celebrating a kinky Halloween.

Imagine my surprise when I went to my first kinky Halloween party. The sleepy little dungeon that I loved so much, the one that houses 20 people comfortably, overflowed that night. There were kinksters on every piece of dungeon equipment. All the chairs in the social area were filled. A few people were sitting on laps. Plenty of submissives were on the floor by their Dominants’ feet. People were standing everywhere, and those who couldn’t fit inside poured into the parking lot.

Halloween was the night of the local kinksters. People who hadn’t been out in months were dressed up and ready to party. But why do kinksters love celebrating a kinky Halloween so much?

You already got the outfit for a kinky Halloween

First of all, kinksters don’t have to buy a costume for Halloween. All you got to do is pull out some fetish gear or one of your role play costumes, and you’re ready to go. Or perhaps throw on an all-black outfit, purple lipstick, and dark eye make-up. You’re not goth, but you are ready for the fetish party. Another great thing about Halloween is that no one blinks at all the leather or the latex. It’s hard to explain a latex bodysuit to anyone other than kinksters on any other night of the year.

If you're a fan of getting all dolled up in a corset and fishnets, you won't be the only one, and also, no one is going to question the crop or the bullwhip on Halloween. And if they do, tell them you’re the Dungeon Master. They’ll think “medieval times”, but you’ll know that the house safeword is “red.”

Live out your kinks in public

On this one night of the year; wanting to be a kitten or puppy isn’t “weird” to anyone. In fact, it’s adorable, and all kinksters - and indeed everyone else - will want to pet you and touch your tail. If you go all out and put your partner on a lead or leash, you will only get a couple of weird looks. Perhaps no one understands why you’re wearing a collar, but on Halloween, they’re less likely to ask about it.

Another benefit of Halloween is that kinksters don’t have to change from street clothes to your fetish gear when you get to the BDSM party or club. Anyone seeing you in your favourite footie pyjamas, carrying a sippy cup and crayons will think it's all part of your special Halloween costume. The random vanilla guy would normally be freaked out by your dominatrix act, but on Halloween, it’s all part of the fun.

When in doubt, kinksters can tell their very vanilla friends that they're Christian and Anastasia from 50 Shades of Grey for Halloween. Your friends might blush and laugh, but they won’t question it, and who doesn't love a good couple's costume?


A kinky Halloween means going as bare as you want

Dressing up is fun any time of year for kinksters, but at least on Halloween, it’s socially acceptable when you go out to dinner. Literally, no one cares how much of your boobs or butt hangs out of the costume. Just call yourself “sexy” whatever - sexy schoolgirl, sexy goth, sexy nurse and you will blend right in - even in your craziest fetish gear! And if you just wear jeans and a t-shirt or whatever you’re comfortable in, none of your kinky friends will ask why you aren’t wearing a costume.

I have never been the type to wear a Halloween costume. It’s not my thing, but give me the crazy heels, a corset, and some fishnet stockings, and I’m ready to have a good time at a kinky Halloween party. Best of all, no one gives me weird looks when I leave the house in my “costume.” And when you look hungover after the kinky Halloween party, everyone will think it was the booze. They’ll never suspect sub/top space.
