    My husband & I used to go every year. We have not attended this party since 2010, before our daughter was born. I would be great to enjoy an actual ADULTS only party!!!
    Pick us.
    WE ARE FUN!!

  2. Ron October 8, 2013 at 4:41 pm #

    Awesome I have just recently moved back up here as we originally use to live here years ago, we got into enjoy another similar adult there in the Bay Area of Calif which we attended several years in a row during each Halloween.
    We have never done local such as this and it would be great to enjoy such without traveling back to the Bay Area so yes… Please can we have a pair of tickets too try the event?

  3. Rachael October 8, 2013 at 4:44 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets so my best friend and I can attend. We have always talked about going each year, but due to the timing it hasn’t worked out until this year! We’d love to go! Pick me so I can take my bestie and we can have a great time!

  4. Ellie Waterhouse October 8, 2013 at 9:14 pm #

    I need tickets to this event because it falls on my birthday and I plan to have an epic Halloween costume, which is a given every year when your birthday is so close to Halloween. Also, I live within walking distance, so I will free up the cabs for the numerous tipsy party-goers. Win-win. Trust me, my costume will be winning.

    • Jon October 10, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

      Ive always wanted to go to this, but the ticket price is usually too much for me. Pick me please!

  5. Tamara Colpitts October 8, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

  6. Kathryn October 9, 2013 at 2:37 am #

    I have wanted to go to this for a few years now, but haven’t found the time. This year would actually work out perfectly. Halloween is my husband’s birthday and he would love this!

  7. Kellie October 9, 2013 at 10:50 am #

  8. Donna Posteher October 9, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    I’ve always wantedto check this out. I usually go to the Sesso bash, curious to see if this one compares! Also, Keegan Smith is fantastic!

  9. Kirsten October 9, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    WOW! I have wanted to go to this party since it’s inception! But I’ve been out of town or it has been sold out each year. :( I know this is a random drawing. I certainly hope to get the luck of the draw this time and win the tickets so I can finally attend this year! I’ve got a super hot costume and hot bf to show off too!!! :) It will be a blast! He would LOVE this as well!

    • Kirsten October 9, 2013 at 1:03 pm #

      Keegan Smith is awesome! I play soccer with his sister. Haha. I didn’t initially notice that he is on the performing list! I so have to win these tickets now! :) Pick me…luck of the draw! LOL

  10. Jasmine G October 9, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    I have wanted to go to this since I moved to portland but just recently turned 21! My boyfriend and I would LOVE to attend!!!!!!

  11. Ashley October 9, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    Why, hello there! My boyfriend and I have just recently moved up to Portland for a change and are looking for a kind of naughty change of events from our regular Halloween activities. Being new to the neighborhood we are seeking to meet like minded, new, fun friends up in these parts. We’re fun, love to dress up, and are looking to have some good old fashioned Halloween FUN! Let’s get this party going!

  12. Larissa October 10, 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    I have wanted to go to this event since I first moved here 7 years ago but the timing, money, etc never quite worked out. My best friend and I really want to go so please pick us!!! Sounds like a great night to be had by all!!

  13. Carrie October 10, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

    My husband and I have friends coming in from out of town to attend this ball.
    We would love to attend, but a recent bout with a life threatening infection has left us with lots of hospital and doctors bills. This would be a wonderful treat and break from reality to win tickets and be able to attend with our friends.

  14. Danielle October 10, 2013 at 4:01 pm #

    Last year was a trick, so I hope this year’s a treat ;)

  15. TJ October 10, 2013 at 4:05 pm #

    I have never been to Halloween party before. I would love for this to be my first… It looks and sounds like so much fun!

  16. Sonja October 10, 2013 at 4:32 pm #

    This would be awesome to attend! I would love to go to an adults only costume party. I am a poor grad student and cannot afford to go on my own. I would break out the goods for this one. :)

  17. Brett October 10, 2013 at 4:34 pm #

    Every year I see the adds, just as it’s too late. Need to take the wife out for this amazing party.

  18. James Y October 10, 2013 at 4:49 pm #

    My wife and I attended events similar to this in Austin, and are recent transplants to Portland. We’re looking to get out and meet some more fun people!

  19. Erika October 10, 2013 at 5:03 pm #

    Because it would shut my friends up!

  20. Anna October 10, 2013 at 5:05 pm #

    This is just what I need to get me thinking about a [email protected] naughty costume for this year. Free tickets would be an amazing TREAT!

  21. Beth shines October 10, 2013 at 6:25 pm #

    This is my first Halloween in Portland. I’m a recent transplant from Louisville Kentucky. Back home I went to some pretty great costume parties. I’d like to see how these pacific north westerners measure up to some crazy southerners! I promise to bring all the charm only a southern girl has.

  22. Pamela Fabrega October 10, 2013 at 6:28 pm #

    Never been and would love to bring my super hot new boyfriend out for a sexy night of romping and fun… believe me, we’ll be dressed to the hilt!

  23. Rosalyn Huntington October 10, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    I would like to win tickets because I love to play dress up.

  24. Scott October 10, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

    Sounds like fun.

  25. Lidio October 10, 2013 at 9:50 pm #

    Wow, this sounds like something to help restore faith in stale, stuck up, fake and boring society, Hope I win :) I could definitely use the excitement!

  26. Julia October 10, 2013 at 10:02 pm #

    Yes! I wanted to go to this so badly last year, but things didn’t work out. It would be amazing if I could go get my freak on…

  27. Anna October 11, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    I need to win these!!! My friends are insisting we attend this party this year and money is really tight! The men in our group are going to be a bunch of bananas and the ladies are going to be scary fruit bats, trying to eat them the whole time!! We will entertain people and compliment well-costumed people up the wazoo!

  28. Buster October 11, 2013 at 11:46 am #

    I have attended in the past…would love tickets so I can bring my hot fiancee…who has never attended….;)

  29. carl b October 11, 2013 at 1:44 pm #

    • Jen October 11, 2013 at 5:01 pm #

      OopS! didn’t mean to post twice – sorry!

  31. Jen October 11, 2013 at 4:59 pm #

    Is clothing mandatory or optional?

  32. ScarlettFan October 12, 2013 at 2:47 pm #

    I want to go dressed up as Irene Adler and leading Sherlock Holmes around on a leash. 3:)

  33. Cristin October 13, 2013 at 4:53 pm #

    I’m taking my friend Casey out on the town. She is new to Portland from Ohio and has never been out to a local club. I can’t wait to show her around.

  34. teenie October 13, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    I will be new to town and will be spending my first halloween in PDX, I would love love love to have this be my first portland halloween extravaganza!

  35. Mike October 13, 2013 at 7:12 pm #

  36. Lauren October 13, 2013 at 7:14 pm #

  37. Nadia Ramirez October 13, 2013 at 11:10 pm #

  38. Onyx October 13, 2013 at 11:16 pm #

    Money is so tight, but I would so love to be able to go to this. I would love it if I won!

  39. Helki October 14, 2013 at 7:10 am #

    I have always wanted to go, but have never had the opportunity or the spare funds, and we usually have the kids and a kid friendly event. but this year, we have no kids that night and we actually have costumes!

  40. Ty October 14, 2013 at 9:13 am #

    My girlfriend and I finally have a Halloween weekend together and are looking for a fun and sexy party and this sounds perfect! Really want to treat her to a fun night out! Hope I win!

  41. Chuck October 14, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    Hmm…sexy people, Halloween, Portland and throw in Erotic? Who would NOT want to join the rhythmic pulse of all that pure, carnal pleasure. Being a voyeuristic curtain in that throng would be grand, but a fellow reveler in that dark and electric atmosphere would be sinfully sweet. Must we beg or can we simply kiss the ring to procure our passes?

  42. Bjoern October 14, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    sweet !

  43. Anna-Laura October 14, 2013 at 12:54 pm #

    Yours truly Cinderella

    We have the best costume! Pick US!

  46. Jenifer Christy October 14, 2013 at 7:40 pm #

    My husband and I got married on Halloween in 2009. This year is our 4th year wedding anniversary and we have NO PLANS yet, except taking the toddlers trick-or-treating. I am craving some adult fun and we have the BEST costumes. Please give us the Honeymoon we never had, and send us to this killer party!!!PLEASE PICK US!!!!

  47. Caitlin Sheaffer October 15, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    Pick me! Spicy!

  48. Tia October 15, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    My husband and I would love to go to this event because we do not get out much. We have an amazing 3 year old boy named Kiften. We both work full time and love our home and family life during our time off. We are in need of a very sexy night out together! We have been to one concert since we are somewhat new parents. We went to Floater a few months ago in Portland and we had a blast! I think it would be good for us to get out and do this event to challenge us to be creative and adventurous and sexy! I moved away from Oregon about 13 years ago and have done a lot of traveling, moved my family from Arizona to Spokane to Minnesota and now happy to be home in Portland. I think Oregon and Portland have a lot to offer my family and me. I have missed the risky creatively sexy side of Portland and am excited to see how it has changed over the years. Much Love!! Rawb, Tia and Kiften :)

  49. Chrisi October 15, 2013 at 8:22 pm #

    This sounds like a sinfully fun way to spend the evening

  50. Naughty Ninja October 15, 2013 at 10:27 pm #

    good looking people + good looking costumes= good times for sure

  51. jody October 16, 2013 at 6:40 am #

    I have always wanted to attend, but was never with a man who would go with me. My boyfriend last year said yes, but I was pregnant and not doing well. This year I would love to surprise him with tickets, he is a lover of dressing up—Vampires are our theme this year. We just got engaged and this would be the best surprise I could give him…..thanks

  52. Tarrah Moore October 16, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    I love Portland’s Erotic Ball!! My girlfriend just moved here from a small town in Washington and I would love to submerge her in just how naughty Portland can be♥

    Couldn’t imagine a more fun filled spicy night with my girlfriend. We both recently turned 21+ and since I have been in Portland this has been on my to-do list.

  66. nathan October 17, 2013 at 11:55 pm #

  69. Julia White October 18, 2013 at 8:42 pm #

    Because me and my husband have never been, we will be visiting Portland and that be bitchen to share this together, thinking of moving here but definitely want to know what portland is about and all the exciting stuff that goes on here!

  70. garrett October 18, 2013 at 10:36 pm #

    we were supposed to go last year but i was pregnant and just about due (nothing says sexy about a 8 month pregnant woman in a sexy outfit). he was really disappointed but the birth of our daughter fixed that temporarily. fast forward a year later and date night has been replaced with everything child related. he suprised me with a very sexy outfit (guess it was more of his present than mine) but the PEB would make a great event to try this out in. we think portland will enjoy seeing me in this very much.

  71. garrett October 18, 2013 at 10:38 pm #

  72. Sarah October 19, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    I’m a single mom of two little girls and I would actually have time to go out this weekend. I just had knee surgery a couple weeks ago so I haven’t been able to work or get paid. I could really use a break and an opportunity to have some fun. It would be greatly appreciated!!!

  73. Clair October 19, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

    I would LOVE to go to this. It has been five years since moving to Oregon and I have had yet to go. It would be neat to get tickets to be able to go this year finally.

  74. pamela s. October 19, 2013 at 10:29 pm #

    I would to win free tickets because this will be my first time going & I’m coming from southern Oregon to come to this event. I cannot wait!

  75. Lucia October 20, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    Looks like the most fun in town and love to see ALL the gorgeous, creative costumes <3

  76. laurie appleton October 20, 2013 at 6:19 pm #

    I would like to attend because it would be fun to do Halloween outside of our usual haunts. My group of friends and I all make custom costumes and I guarantee they will be some of the most unique. I would love to take it to this event.

  77. cherilyn October 20, 2013 at 9:19 pm #

    We have always wanted to do this but something has always come up. This year we are totally free. Will our luck change and win the tickets??

  78. Rowan October 21, 2013 at 12:28 am #

    I went to a few of these kinds of sexy parties when I lived in Arizona and would really love to come make some new friends here in my newly adopted kick-ass city of fun!!

  79. Pamela S October 21, 2013 at 12:40 am #

    I am driving from Medford OR to try to come to this in hopes I win some free tickets. Taking a big chance on this and would rather be here at the erotic ball than anywhere else in Portland celebrating Halloween weekend. I have never been to the erotic ball and hear its a blast. I hope i get the chance to tell people all about it after you help me win some tickets!! :)

  80. Alisa R October 21, 2013 at 12:54 am #

    Moved to Portland in Feb but have been working practically every day since I got a job and TOTALLY need a night to let loose. I promise you’ll love having me and my friend partying in your crowd… :)

  81. Cam October 21, 2013 at 3:01 am #

    I would love to win tickets to this event, I’ve never been before.

  85. Harlan October 22, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

    This year I’m Mardi Gras man. You gotta see it!

  86. Jay October 23, 2013 at 12:54 pm #

    Been to this event 2 of the last 5 years and would like to go again. They never seem to have a category for my storm trooper costume but I like to show for appearances. This time I might have up to 4 more troopers in tow. Would like 5 tix – VIP ftw

  87. julia statzer October 26, 2013 at 7:33 am #

    I know it is past the submit time for free tickets for comments. I figured I would give it a try anyway perhaps if the event has any extras. Really interested in experiencing something of this nature. It would be great to be able to go.
