Imagine a place where individuals can gather-unbridled and unchained-to tap into their sexual desires and fantasies while simultaneously benefiting their community. Curated and hosted right here in Pittsburgh, the first annual Bondage Ball will aim to do just that.

Bondage Ball curators set out on this journey with several goals in mind: to raise money for Breast Cancer research and awareness, while they beat the stigmas and break down the walls of inhibited sexual curiosities in a comfortable and open environment. All proceeds from the inaugural event will be donated in full to further Breast Cancer awareness and research.
