Maspalomas Fetish Week is an annual international event for men into fetish gear and play, organised by Igon Canaries, in collaboration with businesses in and around the Yumbo Centre in Playa del Ingles, and Gay/Bi men complexes, on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria. Famous for its nocturnal LGBT scene, all year fantastic weather, and very relaxed attitude, there are men only bars, sex clubs and Gay hotel resorts for all tastes.

Each night during the fetish week, promoters from around Europe will host exclusive parties in the Yumbo venues, with DJ’s, live XXX shows, fetish art expos, and the annual Mr Fetish Gran Canaria election – which is open to the public with prizes to be won. A multitude of venues and businesses support Fetish Week, putting together 9 days of various activities and events. Everyone is encouraged to wear fetish gear at night, and the dress code for most venues is leather, rubber, uniforms, skinhead, military and sports kit (see dress code page).

Everyday the gay resorts will be hosting pool parties, where you can strip off your fetish clothes, relax in the sunshine and hang out with sexy guys. Some men only resorts are also clothing optional, and have special outdoor cruising areas for playl You can be as liberated as you want.

The event will also be an opportunity to raise much needed funding for the local HIV charity ACES (AMIGOS CONTRA EL SIDA/Friends against AIDS), who help support people living with HIV in Gran Canaria. ACES supplies free condoms and lube to most of the Yumbo venues, which you can usually ask for at the bar. Please think about dropping a coin into the ACES boxes, and receive extra good Karma points! So if you are into fetish and fancy a holiday in the sun, head over to Gran Canaria for Maspalomas Fetish Week, held in October every year.
