What Is?

The Gathering Party was created back in 2002, it’s main driver being the nonexistence of fetish parties in Portugal at the time.
The first party was conceived as a simple gathering for the portuguese community, thus the name “The Gathering Party”.
One of it’s main goals has always been to be a beacon for stranded fetishists and kinksters alike, helping them find kindred, always with a spirit of inclusion and mutual respect.


“The Gathering Party: once you have been you keep coming back!”

“Erothiko is a true gentleman and I felt instantly at ease with him when we met in Paris, a couple of years ago – he is as nice in real-life as he is online. A man I consider a good friend even though we live far apart.”

“Great party, warm people, worth visiting! Love to return in the future.”

“Running parties isn’t about gathering a few friends and finding a venue. It’s more than that. It’s about passion, dedication, heart and soul. It’s not enough to pick a date on a calendar. You have to be innovative, organised and creative too. Erothiko you are a man that possesses all of these qualities and whilst I have never been to one of your events, I have no doubt that you put your ALL into it. Can’t wait till I’m “Kicking it” with you at The Gathering Party.”

“Lisboa is one of the most interesting and beautiful cities in Europe, and always worth a trip. If you can combine that with the visit of a fetish event, it is a perfect plan for an unforgettable weekend. The friendly people, the beautiful location, the “Southern” style and atmosphere are a nice variation of the fetish parties we know here in Germany.”
