For Burning Man 2018 I founded a theme camp named Swoon✨ We were placed at 6:00 and I, the 6 o’clock plaza in Avant Yard village. It was conceived as a home for the members of the Shibari Sanctuary who wanted to return to Burning Man. It was described very shortly as an orgy without the expectation of penetration. It was a naked space of rope, light, mirrors, softness, and of course love.
We offered workshops from an introduction to rope bondage, a rope salon, a smell orgy, sound healing, naked breakfast, naked yoga, as well as a consent free zone. We also hosted a super nicely attended Kinbaku perfomance night.
The trend with all our events was that there were more people wanting to attend then there was space in our dome. For some events we had upwards of 5 times too many people and had to get creative to see who could stay and who had to miss out. For the get tied up event we imposed a rule that in order to stay for the event everyone had to be naked 😉
Some of the nicest things about the camp and events we held was that several people told us that the event was the first time they had been naked in a public setting and that they were happy they had and really enjoyed it. For me this was amazing, and exactly the reality I had hoped to create in a place like Burning Man where nudity is still more of an exception then the rule.
