The custom of wearing masks developed to protect the identity of the Carnival participants and empowering them anonymous freedom to partake in their most intimate of fantasies and desires. The point of THE MASQUERADE BALL is to provide a sexy evening of 'mystique' & 'playfulness' for you and your friends to experience the freedom of anonymity behind the mask, leaving your inhibitions behind, and setting your wildest fantasies free. So get in the playful, adventurous Venetian spirit and prepare for what is sure to be one of the most unforgettable & most tantalizing experiences of your lives...
