It’s not only the Sun that is raising the city’s mercury levels this summer, Delhiites too are increasing the heat by being a part of some daring and bold parties. With themes ranging from Playboy, Russian strippers, casino to pole dancers, people in the city seem to have found naughtier ways to party. From decor to the attire of the guests, everything is done with respect to these themes.
“Adult theme parties like these happen more in Mumbai, but the Capital is catching up fast. One such theme is of the Russian strippers, where girls perform a pole dance. It’s more of an eye-candy for guests and there are no untoward incidents. We make sure that none of the performers get harassed in any way possible,” says Kunal Bawa, a marketing professional with an event management firm.
Recently, a playboy themed party was hosted in a farmhouse in South Delhi. With full blown posters of naked and scantily clad men and women put up in every corner, the party had even managed to shock the guests.
“There are quite a few adult themes that Delhiites are opting for these days, like the Hen’s theme party — an equivalent of a bachelor’s party for girls. Another famous theme is masquerade, which gives an opportunity to guests to conceal their identities by using props such as masks. It is a hit among the age group 30-40,” says Vaibhaev Lamba, owner of a store where one can pick up goodies for theme parties. “The demand is so much that we have to renew our stocks after 15-20 days,” he adds.
Another interesting theme doing the rounds of the party circuit is the casino theme. As the name suggests, it is most popular among those who love to gamble. And in a place like Delhi where people love to spend big on card games during festivals like Diwali, this theme has scored well. “This theme is trending. The party place is setup in such a way that it resembles a casino. Large cutouts of cards and dices are placed to create the casino effect,” says Vedika Tripathi, director of an event management firm.
