House of Scorpio > Upcoming Events

Coming up next
(online only, until further notice):

Fri 7.17 - Femme Flirt: femmes-only flirting class and mixer
Sun 7.19 - Sex Lit: erotic book club with Stoya - with author call-in!
TBA - Saints & Sinners: pop-up strip club

Our regular IRL events lineup, currently largely on hold:

We host four monthly events, from mixers to play events (see the full schedule below). Taste The Rainbow, our sex-positive community-building mixer, is the best place to start if you're new, want facilitated introductions and detailed explanations of how it all works, and would enjoy party games and other experiences designed to welcome you to our community. If you're feeling more adventurous, our makeout party Lip Service is the event we're most well known for: think of it as rated R instead of X. It's also the place to get approved in person for the more naughty parties -- like the monthly pansexual Countdown play party.

Sundays are all about creating sexiness for your brain, with Bedroom Badass, our series of "adult" education workshops -- or one of our two collaborations with famed pornographer Stoya: either Sex Lit, our erotic book club, or Rated Sex, our erotic film club.

In addition to our monthly parties, we have three rotating quarterly events: Saints and Sinners, a luscious creeper-free pop-up strip club; Femme Flirt, a femmes-only flirting party, and a brand new erotic cabaret...whenever the world opens up again.

Plus we do one-off events, like BYOKink, a more fetish-oriented play party; Persephone, a classic dungeon and goth dance party; and The Sinners Market, New York's only fetish, fantasy and sex-positive pop-up market. And of course you never know what other unpredictable sex-positive events we may come up with.

Details for all upcoming events are below and are easiest to get via our mailing list, just to the right. All tickets, for monthly members or new friends, are on our membership page. Don't see a ticket link even though there's an upcoming date? You likely need to be approved before receiving the link. Read the invites fully, as each specifies all the details and rules you need to know to attend.

For best deals on tickets, or if you would like to support the sex-positive work we do, please consider becoming a monthly member. For as little as $5/month, you can help HoS exist and attend our events FREE or 25-75% off.

Some basic video-conferencing tips:

- Be on time. You can join the waiting room 10 min prior to doors to test your setup. The event will start as scheduled. (But yes, you can always join an event already in progress.)
- Control your presentation by turning your camera on/off and choosing your screen name and pronoun.
- Mute yourself unless actively talking.
- Use the "raise hand" function in Zoom if you want to participate in discussion. You can also type comments and questions into chat.
- There's about a second delay in audio. Pause longer than usual to give people time to reply.
- Don't talk over people when replying; it confuses the app. Wait for someone to finish their point.
- There's about a second delay in video auto-focus catching up to you talking. Reply immediately when called on to force the focus change ("hi!"), but pause for a second before making your main point, so the video can catch up.

It's an anxiety-inducing world out there. We've teamed up with multiple mental health professionals from our sex-positive community to hold a safe space for you to connect, compare coping strategies and extend support for each other.

Our mental health team is working on topics, but we also invite you to make suggestions by email or in the FB event. What do YOU want to hear about?

We hope to make this meet-up bi-weekly as long as the pandemic continues, if there's interest from our community (updates TK via HoS mailing list; you can sign up on our site). We're scheduling this event for an optimal worldwide time window -- don't hesitate to tune in to just a potion of the discussion, as fits your schedule. We are also hoping to cross-broadcast to Facebook live, if the software works (stay tined to the FB event for info as we confirm it).

Sex Bingo with Stoya & ZeroSpaces' UNICORN issue release party

Sat June 27, 5-8pm, 21+ (25+ suggested)
Monthly members: FREE-$9; non-members: $18 with bingo card / $12 without (both can win)
Buy tickets | Event on Facebook | Event on Fetlife

Video conference: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/699199365
Bingo game: https://www.bingomaker.com/app/play - search for "SxBingo1" private game (SxBingo2 is backup game)
Password for both sent in ticket purchase confirmation email

Pornographer Stoya hosts a brand new party night of participatory adult edutainment. Sex Bingo objectifies the bingo wheel, turning it into a tool to spark conversations about sex. Spin the wheel, match the number to an explicit topic and jump into discussion. Tell stories, ask questions, share tips. Think of it as a talk show where everyone is a special guest, and sex is the topic of conversation. Or one of those tipsy evenings where you swap sex & relationship stories with your friends.

Porn-tastic prizes from ZeroSpaces.com awarded for bingo wins, as well as Most Entertaining, Most Informative and Most Thought-Provoking contributions -- you don't need bingo cards to win in these categories, but obviously you can't bingo without a card. ZeroSpaces is an explicit online magazine created by Stoya, where every issue is the sex issue.

This event celebrates the release of ZeroSpaces' UNICORN issue. Cover model and burlesque performer extraordinaire Olive TuPartie will co-host (she's a gem...a sparkly, confetti throwing gem), and all other issue collaborators are invited to drop in. All winners will receive access to the issue, and Most Thought-Provoking winner will also get the opportunity to suggest topics for the next Bingo. We will also weave the theme into our list of 75 topics for the bingo ball to land on. And of course, you're invited to dress up to celebrate (masks, horns, rainbows, glitter). Find more on ZS here.

House rules: no jokes (personal funny stories are fine). Be respectful of all participants. House of Scorpio code of conduct always applies. Due to the nature of the prizes, winners will need to provide proof of age. Silly outfits and cocktails are strongly encouraged.

All 2020 dates (virtual until further notice): 1.23, 2.27, 3.26, 4.23, 5.28, date change: 6.26, 7.23, 8.27, 9.24, 10.22, 11.26, 12.x?

No PAL or dress code requirement, but HoS Code of Conduct always applies

We get asked all the time how people can join us if they are shy, don't know like-minded friends, lack PALs for the play parties, have no idea how this whole thing works, don't really feel like jumping into sexual activity but want to connect to open-minded humans, etc. This new monthly party is the answer!

Calling all poly, swinger, kink, LGBTQIA and other "alternative" dating/sex/gender-aligned humans and their allies. We're creating a protected and judgment-free space for connections, conversations, community, games and interactivity.

// This is how we run the event IRL...who wants to help us craft this vibe on Zoom? We need you, community! // For those of you new to it all: direct introductions to HoS members new and old; facilitated discussions on poly, kink and swinger lifestyles; icebreaker games to welcome you to our club. For our regulars: a way to ease new friends into our scene; a chance to meet all the new faces you may want to kiss later; a visit with the community even if your PAL is not around. For everyone: social games, both risqué and plain fun; a charming hostess (Vivica Volt) to make the introductions and explain all things HoS and sex-positive; secret missions for social connections, and a cozy setting for conversations and future kisses. //

Please note: while no PALs are required to attend this event, we are serious about keeping all our events a zero-creeper zone. We appreciate everyone helping us call out those who break our Code of Conduct and make guests feel uncomfortable -- please speak up to them directly, and report them to our host & staff. We would also love to work with our regulars to create an official safety monitor team; please get in touch.



Every second Friday: Lip Service (a pansexual kissing & cocktails party)

All 2020 dates (virtual until further notice): 2.14, 3.13, 4.10, 5.8, 6.12, 7.10, 8.14, 9.11, 10.9, 11.13, 12.11

Next event: Fri May 22, 7pm-10pm, 21+ (25+ suggested)
Monthly members: $0-$15; non-members: $20
No PAL requirement for main room, but IRL or virtual PAL required for party rooms
HoS Code of Conduct always applies, including dress code
Due to the social nature of this event, video is required for participation

Can you believe we haven't held one of our makeout parties since February?! We're tired of waiting for life to get back to "normal." It likely won't for a while. So we're going to adapt Lip Service to these times, instead.

Here's what's staying the same: LS as our R-rated community mixer. This is the place to get to know your fellow kinksters, introduce a partner to a more playful lifestyle, and maybe even find a future PAL for when we get back into play events.

Here's what's different: obviously, we can't deliver kisses through the screen. But we will have a suite of sexy party rooms, each with a theme or game, that you can join throughout the event. And you know one of the rooms will be Spin The Bottle...somehow. We'll be taking votes on the other rooms! Please see the FB event for the poll: you can vote on our room ideas and add your own.

PAL note: we know a lot of you are in lockdown on your own, even if you normally have partner(s) for our events. We won't be requiring a PAL to get into the main hangout room, but whether next to you on the couch or via their own device, you'll need a PAL for the playful side rooms.

Dress to be kissed: sexy and fun. Our usual IRL dress code: fetish attire, formalwear, lingerie, corsets, tutus and costumes always welcome...and we consider those unisex options (the more colorful and outrageous, the better). We won't be enforcing the dress code like we do in person, but we'd love to see you make the usual effort...at least in part. We won't judge you for wearing pajama pants!

*Why so early? Our virtual guests come from all over the globe. This time seems to be the best fit for most people...just slightly awkward for everyone. If the party is going strong, we could keep it going after 10.



Every fourth Saturday (if our loft is available): Countdown: a pansexual play party

All 2020 dates (virtual until further notice): 1.25, 2.22, 3.28, 4.25, 5.23, 6.27, 7.25, 8.22, 9.26, 10.24, 11.28, 12.26?

Part cocktail party, part makeout party, part play party. The countdown begins when doors open at 10pm: it's a mix-and-mingle cocktail party for the first hour.

But at 12am, all restrictions lift; the door is locked, and the party can take its natural course. Please arrive by 11:45pm, though you can leave anytime.

Dress to be kissed: sexy and fun. Fetish, lingerie and costume attire always welcome. No casual or business; door man WILL turn you away. See Code of Conduct for detailed dress code description. Yes, you can change when you get here.

If you haven't been to our loft, we have: lots of couches, massage tables and other play surfaces; private rooftop smoking area; beams, upright posts and an outdoor point to rig to; and complete privacy from the street. Bring toys & games to share (blindfolds...rope...restraints...floggers). This being a full-on play party, other toys are welcome too. We'll provide basic safety supplies, but you should always come prepared.



Next date TBA: Burlesque BBQ and BYOKink fetish + play afterparty

A collaboration with one of our favorite producers! From your favorite weirdos of the all-nude Cirque du so Weird fame, comes a taste of summer like you've never experienced before. We're firing up the grill on the rooftop and bringing you homestyle BBQ to enjoy, while the hottest performers bring you summertime sexiness on stage and in the house. Hosted by Lydia Vengeance with food by all-star chef, Wyl White. Featuring performances by Audrey Love, Olive TuPartie, and more TBA. Sexy dress encouraged, but not required for the show.

Unleash your dark side, and join us for an evening of boundary exploration. From age play to zentai, you're welcome to indulge in your kinkiest desires. We provide a safe space, multiple rigging points, St Andrew's cross with a few basic impact implements, sensory play station with blindfolds and toys, sex swing, dog cage, medieval torture style spreader bar, and lots of soft surfaces. You bring restraints, rope, impact toys, electrostim, cling wrap, and things we cannot even imagine.

Please get in touch if your kink involves body fluids, is otherwise messy, or could impact/trigger any other guests: we'd like to talk through safe ways of making your fantasy happen. Please no X-rated activity under doors are locked at midnight. Kink play welcome at all times.

Dress code: dress for your kink, of course, with preference for classic fetish attire & lingerie. No casual or business; door man WILL turn you away. See Code of Conduct for detailed dress code description. Yes, you can change when you get here.

Do you wish you could whisper sweet nasty things to your partner but the cat has your tongue? We will explore sexy talk that can stimulate a partner before a sexual encounter, enhance stimulation during an encounter, and can make an encounter more memorable. Participants will leave the workshop with the confidence and vocabulary to stimulate themselves and their partners through expanding their erotic vernacular and gaining confidence in their sexual communication.

Some topics to be covered:
- Communication skills (why is it so hard?!)
- How to learn about and communicate our desires
- Stimulating words before, during and after an sexual encounter
- How to find our sexual voice

We'll provide you with exercise breaks to make your learning hands-on, and, as always, will leave dedicated Q&A time to allow you to speak directly to our teacher, and get your feedback on this and possible future workshops.

Bedroom Badass is our series of workshops to take couples and individuals through various steps in opening up their relationships, or in exploring more adventurous sexual experiences. Whether you're a total novice or an old pro, each class has a range of information relevant to all experience levels.

*Every other Sunday of the month is your opportunity to turn on your brain and not just your body, with Bedroom Badass (sex-adjacent skill learning series) every first Sunday of the month, and pornographer Stoya's Sex Lit (book club) or Rated Sex (film club) every third Sunday.

The body's largest sex organ is the brain. Come stimulate yours with a rousing discussion of an explicitly erotic book led by pornographer Stoya. Drinking encouraged throughout, and mingling will follow the talk.

Your book for this edition of Sex Lit is K. M. Szpara's "Docile" -- a science fiction parable about love and sex, wealth and debt, abuse and power, a challenging tour de force that at turns seduces and startles. There is no consent under capitalism. Content warning: Docile contains forthright depictions and discussions of rape and sexual abuse. The author will be joining the discussion.

This should be obvious, but: read the book before joining the book club! Of course you can join us even if you haven't read it, but you'll be better able to participate in the club if you did.

You likely know who Stoya is already, but in case you don't: she has been working with sexuality for over a decade. Stoya has recently developed a taste for acting with her clothes on, and is the author of Philosophy, Pussycats, & Porn published by Not A Cult. She is also known for her appearance in Clayton Cubitt's Hysterical Literature.

Stoya's Book Club, a teaser.

*Every other Sunday of the month is your opportunity to turn on your brain and not just your body, with Bedroom Badass (sex-adjacent skill learning series) every first Sunday of the month, and pornographer Stoya's Sex Lit (book club) or Rated Sex (film club) every third Sunday.

No PAL or dress code requirement, but HoS Code of Conduct always applies

The body's largest sex organ is the brain. We have stimulated yours with books; now we turn our attention to film. What makes a scene or film truly erotic? How do you sort through the endless megabytes of mediocre porn to find unique gems? Let pornographer Stoya show you the way.

Stoya is co-owner of the new explicit online magazine ZeroSpaces, showcasing a collection of videos, photos, articles and more around a particular theme per issue. With the other co-owner of the platform, programmer and comedian Rev Mitcz, in town for just one week, we're excited to screen an issue of ZeroSpaces live exclusively for House of Scorpio. All clips from the issue will be screened; Rev Mitcz will be introducing the show, and Stoya will be reading select essays. We hope to have a rousing discussion of porn, sex, and modern society.

A less formal format than the book club, this will be more a cocktail party with hand-picked porn, facilitated discussion, and mingling after.



Rotating quarterly on every third Friday: Femme Flirt (flirting class + femmes-only makeout party)

All 2020 dates (virtual until further notice): 3.20, 6.19, 9.18, 12.18
Buy tickets | Event on Facebook | Event on Fetlife

Next event: Fri May 15, 6:30pm doors / 6:40-7:30pm class / 7:30-9:30pm party, 21+ (25+ suggested)
Monthly members: $0-$10; non-members: $20 including flirting class / $10 party only
Video conference: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83137815058 (password sent in tix confirmation email)
No PAL requirement, but HoS Code of Conduct always applies, including dress code
Due to the social nature of this event, video participation is required for the mixer portion (not the class)

It's been a common refrain that it's harder for women to flirt with each other, as we frequently can't tell how much flirting may be ok, who's straight and who's flexible/bi/queer, whether a connection we may be feeling is a friendly one or one with potential chemistry to explore. And, when cis & hetero presenting, we are sometimes made to feel too straight for gay spaces, so are left to guess in mixed environments.

This event is a small step towards diminishing bi, queer and gay femme invisibility, enabling and encouraging women of all genders to connect socially and romantically to other women. We hope to be a place of empowerment and support for your exploration, even if you're just starting out or are unsure about your orientation. Explore and push your boundaries in a safe space, or just be be social with other queer or queer-curious femmes. There will be separate rooms for socializing and flirting.

We start with "Flirting for Femmes" mini Bedroom Badass class with Vonka, followed by a sassy mixer giving you a chance to practice your new skills. Don't need the class or don't want to flirt? Come for the party and connect with a roomful of femme-identifying humans.

Dress code: dress in whatever makes you feel sexy, however feminine or masculine you feel. We won't enforce the dress code as strictly as IRL, but we respectfully ask for no casual attire.

Who can attend: self-identifying femmes of all genders who want to connect with other femmes, from bi-curious to gay. While HoS events are usually more pansexual, we're going to keep this one as a femme-only space. Please note that we're a TERF-free zone! Trans women are women, and we <3 you.

For one night only, our sexy clubhouse becomes a full-on strip club, with a pole stage, an array of lap dance-ready seating, and our very own Champagne Room. There will be eight dancers to entertain you: each a hand-picked burlesque, pole or circus star stepping outside the boundaries of their genre to spend the whole night dancing for you on stage and in your lap. Featuring:

Once the dancers are done at 1am, the stage is yours to shake your booty on. Live out your strip fantasies on our stage as DJ Ceremony provides the beats late into the night.

Rules of the club: the usual HoS dress code & code of conduct apply. Dress up, or you will be turned away at the door. Tip generously. Get lap dances: they're the best part, and only $10. Respect the dancers. Keep your hands to yourself (or your partner). Nudity is fine on the stage, but no private parts on our furniture. Please treat our pole gently; no wild swinging.

2019 needs a "fuck you" sendoff. Be bold, be wild, as you enter 2020.

A hedonistic Masquerade to activate your senses with pulsating beats, swirling visuals, sensory games and activities, impact play stations, and many kisses. Music by DJ Ceremony and Poodlecannon, masters of eclectic dance floor surprises. Custom interactive silhouette projections by CJ. Free champagne 9-10pm and 3-4am. First confetti cannons for first 50 guests.

Strict formal, lingerie or kink dress code. Masks required until midnight (some will be available for sale).

While we're creating a safe space for you to get cozy or sensual with your friends and loved ones, this is not an X-rated event. It's a night to let go and let your senses guide your way: dance party meets makeout party, with light sensory & BDSM play welcome. As always, we will have zero creeper tolerance, and please no photos without explicit consent from your subjects.

*All tickets offer the same access to the event. Please support at the level you can afford. Tickets are limited to keep the event comfortable and welcoming.

As autumn's chill stills the air, Persephone once again journeys to the underworld to bring redemption and pleasure to its denizens and to seek out her immortal lover Hades. Taste the sacred pomegranate and join us in a modern recrafting of the sacred and erotic Eleusian mysteries.

A dark and haunting mix of dance, performance, sensory experience and kink play, Persephone is a fetish Halloween celebration. Featuring interactive experiences and performances by Kitty Killin (rope), Lady Euphoria (wax) and Mistress Maddox (flogger & single tail). DJ Ceremony (Svmmon: a dark dance experience, Disintegration - The Cure immersion party) and DJ Jackpot (QXT's, Pyramid Club, Lucky 7s) keep you dancing all night with goth, industrial, synth, dark 80s, new wave, electro.

We are collaborating with blacksmiths Bound in Iron to set up a special dungeon area with play equipment, including a Humiliation Zone on our stage. Rigging points available for suspension play. Explore your darkest desires...bring your dates & your toys. Consent and polite party behavior strictly enforced. Dungeon open for photos 9-10pm, and for play 10pm-end.

Welcome to our underworld.

Dress code: gods and goddesses, devils and demons, damned souls, gothic, fetish, dark Lolita, cyberpunk, ninja warrior. Effort required / no casual wear.
