Today, Berlin is one of the world’s greatest hedonistic playgrounds. The crown jewel of its nightclubs is the techno temple Berghain, which began in the 1990s as a fetish party. But on any given night in Schöneberg, and across the city, a smorgasbord of sexual theme parties take place, and dress codes abound, from latex to leather to nothing at all. The Wednesday that I met Lindinger, an alternative monthly listed a dozen such events taking place on that night alone. “Berlin is outstanding as a city of sex,” Lindinger said.

Which is why Venus, an erotic trade and consumer fair that claims to be the world's largest of its kind, convenes here annually. This year's four-day event, which runs through Sunday, has drawn 30,000 attendees.  "People come to Berlin for something a little bit special," said Walter Hasenclever, the show's publicity director.

Venus, in its eighth year, features a mix of sex products and erotic performances in a setting that combines the ambience of an airport terminal with a flea market.  Hasenclever said most of Venus' consumer customers are couples who don't blush easily.

Darroux said she first came to Berlin from her native France because she was attracted to its burgeoning tech start-up scene, but another scene quickly took over.

Happy New Year

Berlin’s techno club scene draws expats and travellers
The techno capital of the world provides the perfect escape for anyone looking to lose, find or just be yourself
Toronto Star

I'd like to write an expat guide to love abroad.

 

I'd call it The Complete Wanker.
