National Fetish Day is a day supporting the BDSM community in the United Kingdom, with plans to expand it internationally. The first day was held on 21 January 2008. The main purpose of National Fetish Day is to increase awareness and support of the fetish community, whilst also opposing pornography laws. It is also designed to encourage members of the community to be more open about their sexuality. One of the aspects of doing so is to wear an item of purple clothing The event was created by the fetishist "Pierced Knight".

incidentally, all of my friends who are into the BDSM scene know that i always dress entirely in purple, but none of them have ever mentioned any connection between the color and the sexual behavior (aside from the fact that many of them are somewhat fond of purple themselves).

also, 21 January 2008 was a national holiday in the US, honoring the late civil-rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King - the holiday officially falls on the third Monday in January, which is close to or on his actual birthday. i daresay some people might find it inappropriate to combine the two celebrations.
