This is an experiential play party for the sensually adventurous. This special evening welcomes all genders and orientations 18+.
This is an invitation to dive deeply into yourself and each other in ways you may have been afraid to do in the past. This is the play party you want to come to even if you’ve never been to a play party before.
We create an expansive, feeling-full environment charged with electricity, yet warmly grounded and earthy. A safe and sacred container for exploring tantalizing touch in a relaxed, sex-positive space. This play party encourages your curiosity about taking your own sensual play space to the next level.
The atmosphere is consent-centered; you get to decide how you engage at every step, including giving and receiving touch. All attendees ask before touching anyone they don’t know well, and no is always a complete sentence.
The evening is a celebration of imagination and curiosity, so you may experience as many flavors as you dare. Come dressed in something that makes you feel special, decadent, and sexy!
Let Alex and Liam guide you through a series of conscious connective touch interactive games as we begin to take a room full of strangers on an intimate exploration of themselves through one another.
Then, let us lead you through a welcome circle where a room of strangers slowly opens up and winds up on the same page, having the opportunity to be seen, heard, and understood in ways maybe you have never even imagined!
What is Play with a capital “P”?
Play with a capital “P” is whatever it means to you. You are invited to co-create whatever feeds your soul. Participation (also with a capital “P”) can mean many things. You’ll see people chatting, flirting, snuggling, making out, exploring energy play, having kink scenes, and engaging in all kinds of sexual play. You get to decide how you engage.
Whether it’s a longtime fantasy or a favorite treat, multiple connections are also welcomed in this space. You’re welcome to experience solo play, partnered play, and threesomes/moresomes in whatever combinations make you happiest.
This is a sensual space where participants are encouraged to explore themselves and others in ways that are stimulating, nurturing, exciting, safe and fun!
This is the Play party you want to come to if you’ve never been AND this is the Play party you want to come to if you want to experience how to take generating safe play space for you and your loved ones to the next level.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
You are sensually, erotically, and emotionally savvy enough to Play nicely with others. You’re a good sharer, you take good care of your toys, and you use your words. 🙂 You are somebody who knows your own wants and boundaries and can communicate them clearly… and/or you’re someone willing to work and explore these areas for your own growth and enjoyment! You treat yourself and others with respect and kindness.
If you’re reading this, thinking, “I would love to come, but I don’t want to play,” please come and enjoy the pressure-free company of like-minded individuals and exit whenever you wish. Really. There will be no pressure for you to do ANY activity at this party at any time.
Our biggest request is that you come with a fun-loving, warm, caring, open-minded, generous, thoughtful, compassionate, non-judgmental attitude and that you conduct yourself with the highest level of integrity possible.
This will be a very chill, fun, playful event where sex and nudity will most likely occur. Come relax. Come sip a glass of something non-alcoholic or a cup of tea. Come smooch. Come play. Come watch and get inspired.
All genders, orientations, bodies, and races welcome 18+. Come as you are and have a great time!
Doors open at 7:30 PM and CLOSE AT 8:00 PM. BE ON TIME as it is essential to have everyone present for the opening circle. There will not be anyone admitted after the doors are closed to preserve the safety of our space.
The Welcome Circle is what we use to introduce ourselves to one another, have a safer sex conversation, share any boundaries and relationship agreements people should know about and get all comfy and ready to Play.
There will be an optional closing circle at midnight. PLEASE text Alex at (510) 480-0235 if you’ll be up to 10 minutes late, but please just be on time!
