Do Tha Hustla(Ball)

If you're feeling cold and lonely there's no need to spend your nights alone, not when one of the circuit's most over-the-top evenings of debauchery is in full effect. Billed as one of the most "hedonistic nights on the club circuit" The HustlaBall is coming to a town near you and it is guaranteed to deliver on one of clubland's hottest events of the season. You may think that you've seen it all, but audiences are never prepared for what this revved up night of revelry has to offer.

Now in its captivating 15th year, the HustlaBall continues the tradition of putting the public up close and personal with the adult film industry's most popular personalities, their pimps and other pushers of the provocative. Back when it made its debut in 1998, the event was coined as an evening of "erotic cabaret" giving sexy artists a platform for exhibiting their well-rounded skills and talents. Since that first night in New York City, the HustlaBall has grown to encompass bigger venues and harder hitting destinations including Las Vegas, London, Berlin and of course Los Angeles.

Returning to New York City for its 2013 season, this year's event is promising not to hold back on the kink and raunch, regardless of the Government Shutdown - not that would have any relevance on the eXXXtra special attractions. Never skimping on the headlining talent, the major adult film studios including Lucas Entertainment, UK Hot Jocks, and Bel Ami have pulled out all the stops (because anything else would be inappropriate) to bring fans some of the biggest names in the industry.

Hot Trade

All gathered under one roof in New York’s Midtown Manhattan hotspot Slake Nightclub, you can expect to rub elbows (and other variously protruding appendages) with Falcon Man of the Year Ryan Rose, after having graced the stage at Broadway Bares Austin Wolf, the UK’s own JP Dubois and Sam Barclay, and the maestro of the evening’s stage show Christopher Daniels deliver the night’s "lengthy" entertainment.

This year’s NYC DJs are also a colorful who’s who of emerging and established talent that have garnered an impressive following as the leather clad stands taking the main stage. Taking over the turntables expect the high-octane sounds of Supergroup’s Luther DJ, DJ Nita, and Toronto’s CubCamp legend DJ Scooter. Making sure that the VIP Room is maintained to spec with proper lighting (and perhaps provide some interesting inspiration for her next film) Mr. Pam, the industry’s premiere female filmmaker will be greeting guests.

Anything goes at the HustlaBall. This party is not for the chaste or faint of heart. The go-go boys are little more than appetizers to some of the more gregarious action that usually goes on display. Second only to the infamous Black Party, it’s no wonder that cameras are not often encouraged to snap candids at the HustlaBall. If you want in on these tricks, you gotta pay for the treats.

Not a "One Night Stand"

In addition to the one-night stand on Sunday, Oct. 13th, the party will begin early that weekend with a premiere night at Penthaus brought to you by BoiParty in the heart of the Theatre District on Friday night, and get your preview lap dancers at the hottest "men’s only" strip show at the Adonis Lounge on Saturday. This may be your only chance to fill Ryan Rose’s jock strap when he appears at Adonis featuring private Champagne Rooms, and more. For a list of the evening’s line-up goto for more.

The HustlaBall prepares for the money shot on Sunday, Oct. 13th @ 10pm in New York City, before it hits Berlin and continues into the New Year with a date in Las Vegas.

Go to to get your tickets to the HustlaBall in New York City this year taking over the new Slake Nightclub (formerly Club Rebel) located at 251 West 30th Street.
