PHOTOS: What You Missed at Seattle's Sexiest Halloween Party, 'Seduction' (NSFW)

The following report was filed by Andrew Hladecek from Saturday night's Seattle Erotic Arts Festival, Seduction.

Halloween is the day where the outside realms of our conscious and subconscious minds get a free pass to be unleashed. During this time of the harvest season, there is one event that bills itself as being the all-you-can-eat buffet of your wildest sexual desires (in reasonable dance party form, of course). That even is called Seduction.

In its 10th year of celebration, the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival's Halloween bash Seduction was the must-see event of the season - having gone down Saturday. Held in Fremont this year at the spacious Fremont Studios building, Seduction provided plenty of samplings of the more hedonistic side of life. It catered to not only those who want to take a full bite, but also those who want a gentle nibble. Any type of appetite was satiated at this event.

On its surface, Seduction seems like the typical Halloween rave: house music, pasties, pirates, and the occasional man in a cock sock. However, Seduction goes far beyond that. At its heart is the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival, which has been the brainchild of the Foundation for Sex Positive Culture for a decade. The diversity of the event is captured exquisitely at the Sensation City stage. Here, willing (and unwilling) participants get the opportunity to experience ornate rope bondage, suspension, wax play and electrical stimulation by one of their highly skilled professionals.

Once again, this area of the venue allows all party people to engage at their own discretion; whether full participation or through simple observation. Other areas of interest included the hanging wall of art in one of the two dance halls with art from some of the area's most edgy erotic artists. And right next door was the "not-to-be-missed" live-painting by urban artist John Osgood as he created a true work of art before the audience's eyes. Also, returning this year was the 20-foot x 40-foot steel spider web which was draped in the main room. Certainly one of the best pieces of instillation art in the area.

And as any good Halloween party should, there was plenty of eye candy around. Seattle seems to have a knack for getting the sexy factor just right when it comes to this time of year. Nothing too over the top, while at the same time nothing too blase. There was also never a point where anything seemed implausible: watching a cop in a thong handcuff a man in a tuxedo (and not all too kindly), seeing a 12-foot tall tree with arms and legs making its way through the dance floor, and seeing a man decked out with a utility belt full of butt plugs and dildos.

At Seduction, nothing is impossible. Except, of course, having a terrible experience. Will you be there next year? You better be.

Here's a look at some photos of Saturday night's action.
