House of Scorpio > Upcoming Events

Every second Friday of the month, HoS hosts Lip Service, our pervy-community-building make-out party...think of it as rated R instead of X. This is the place to get to know your fellow kinksters and get approved for the more naughty play parties -- like Countdown, which is held every fourth Saturday of the month, loft availability allowing. Throughout the year, we also present Bedroom Badass, a series of poly- and kink-friendly relationship workshops, and other unpredictable one-off events. Details for upcoming events are below.

PAL/volunteering note: If you're a HoS regular in good standing, and your PAL is absent for a play event, you can volunteer for setup/breakdown, and attend without a PAL and at a reduced rate. If you're new to our parties, you cannot attend without a PAL under any circumstances. Lip Service always requires a PAL / doesn't have volunteer roles.

Two nights of exploring desire from House of Scorpio, purveyors of the infamous underground makeout & play parties, and LUST, makers of extravagant erotic nightlife. On Friday, engage in intense intimacy and fetishistic foreplay before diving into the deep end Saturday night, where the rating increases from NC-17 to decidedly X.

Dress code: over-the-top sexiness, lingerie, fetish, leather, lace, latex, rubber, vinyl, straps, corsets, tutus, steampunk, neo-Victorian, goth, dark Lolita, dandy, fantasy, festival. TimeOut said it best: "convention-busting clothing with a sexy, creative flair." If in doubt, go formal. No casual or business attire; door man WILL turn you away. Yes, you can change when you get here.

Friday, Dec 29 - Eros: Black

Friday only: if space allows, pre-approved guests can buy $30 tickets at door after midnight (all rules apply)

Leather and lace. Blindfolds and handcuffs. Whips and chains. Pleasure and pain. Step into our dungeon and give in to your darkest passions. Escape reality and bring out your inner dom(me) or sub...along with your favorite implements of torture and ecstatic pleasure. Watch or play. Don't know how? We'll teach you...or perhaps some of our other guests will.

Featuring: ~ Roaming Dommes ~ Spanking station ~ Violet wand ~ Flogging ~ Hot wax play ~ Rigging point for shibari and suspension play ~ Erotic performances by Abby Hertz and Nola Kodish ~ Your dungeon Mistresses for the night: Kayla Lael & Vonka Romanov

Please note: while this event has some similarities to the Eros nights, it is not a LUST collaboration, and will not feature the usual LUST performers. Think of it as a dance party with Lip Service rules and games, plus additional interactive stations.

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

Upcoming 2017 dates: Dec 8
Event on Facebook | Event on Fetlife | RSVP closed; please come to door

10pm-late, 21+ (25+ suggested), $15 with RSVP/$20 without
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - address form below
Please arrive with a PAL and be familiar with our Code of Conduct

Bring your luscious lips (yours and your PAL's), and join us for lubricating cocktails and naughty games with sexy friends and intriguing strangers. Bring toys & games to share (blindfolds? rope? sexy dice?). Foreplay happy hour 10-11pm with $4 beer and $5 well drinks.

Think of our makeout parties as community mixers--a place to get to know your fellow kinksters, introduce a partner to a more playful lifestyle, and maybe even find a future PAL--before attending the more naughty play parties. It's also a way for us to vet you in person for such parties (talk to us at the event).

Dress to be kissed: flirty, sexy and fun. No casual or business attire; door man WILL turn you away. TimeOut said it best: "convention-busting clothing with a sexy, creative flair" -- point being that you're the kind of person that already dresses this way, not someone trying to force themselves into a costume just to get in. Fetish attire, formalwear, lingerie, corsets, tutus and costumes always welcome...and we consider those unisex options (the more colorful and outrageous, the better). Please don't email us asking what to wear: getting past this challenge is part of the process, and draws a community of like-minded arty freaks togther.

Note for straight male-male PALs: This is a pansexual event welcoming ALL shades of gender & sexual self-identity. Come prepared to participate in sexy party games that include other men, as well as queer or trans individuals. If you can't handle mild physical contact with another man in the context of a party game, this is not the right event for you. Be forewarned: our doorman might ask you to kiss each other at the door. If you're only coming to hit on girls, you're breaking our "no cruising" rule and are not welcome.

Note for hetero couples: That last sentence applies to you too. No unicorn hunters, please.

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. At 11, all regular makeout party rules apply: all the clothes stay on, and all playtime is PG13-rated. 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 Lip Service description above for acceptable dress code. We also have a helpful thread on good menswear on our FB group (feel free to add recommendations).

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

Sun, Nov 15, 2017: Sex Lit: Stoya's Book Club

Buy tickets | Event on Facebook | Event on Fetlife

Sunday, Nov 19, 6-9pm, 21+ (25+ suggested), $20
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form below for address
No PAL or dress code requirement, but HoS Code of Conduct always applies

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

Stoya's Book Club, a teaser.

Your book for this edition of Sex Lit is Pauline Réage's "Story of O." Story of O is a famed erotic novel by Anne Desclos, first published under the pen name Pauline Reage -- itself a pen name for Dominique Aury, a French writer and translator who was a respected member of the literary establishment. "Réage" -- a name invented specifically for The Story of O -- was apparently told by her lover, the literary publisher Jean Paulhan, who was an admirer of the sadistic Marquis de Sade, that no woman could ever write an erotic novel. The Story of O was her response. The work is distinguished less by its plot (about a beautiful fashion photographer called O who is forced to become a sex slave to a secret society of men and who is beaten and branded and eventually coaxed into enticing other women to become sex slaves) than by the manner of its prose, in particular the control exercised by Desclos in her depiction of O's private musings and reflections during and after her submission to acts of torture and humiliation.

This should be obvious, but: read the book before joining the book club!

In case you've been living under a rock: Stoya has been a pornographer for over a decade. She was awarded Best New Starlet by her industry, and is most known for her appearance in Clayton Cubitt's Hysterical Literature.

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 a play-friendly Champagne Room. There will be six 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 Lip Service dress code & code of conduct apply / Countdown rules in Champagne Room. Read the website. Dress up. Tip generously (dancers, wait & bar staff). 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.

*Reserved seats ($50) include: 9pm admission + a seat at a 4-person table with a view of both stages + wait service + access to reserved lap dance seat
