Upcoming events at a glance

Sun 10.21 - Sex Lit
Sat 10.20 - Countdown
Thur 10.25 - Under Cover
Fri 10.26 - Persephone: kinky Halloween
Fri 11.9 - Lip Service

We host a few ongoing monthlies, from mixers to full-on playtime. Under Cover (every third Thur of the month), our pervy-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 seeing and mingling with some weird & wonderful burlesque and variety performers. If you're feeling more adventurous, our makeout party Lip Service (every second Fri) 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 for the more naughty parties -- like Countdown (every fourth Sat).

Our third Sundays of the month are all about creating sexiness for your brain, not just your body, by alternating Sex Lit, our erotic book club with famed pornographer Stoya, with her erotic film club, Rated Sex, and, if Stoya is not in town, Bedroom Badass, a series of poly- and kink-friendly relationship workshops). And a few times a year we throw down with Saints and Sinners, a luscious creeper-free pop-up strip club, and Eros, our unique co-production with the famed upscale erotic performance party LUST. And of course you never know what other unpredictable sex-positive events we may come up with. Dates and details for all upcoming events are below and are easiest to receive via our mailing list, just to the right -->

If you're a frequent guest, or would like to support the sex-positive work we do, please consider a monthly membership. For as little as $5/month, you can help HoS exist and attend our events FREE or 25-50% off.

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

Calling all poly, swinger, kink, LGBTQIA and other "alternative" dating, sex & gender folks and their allies. We're creating a protected and judgment-free space for connections, conversations and 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 get you in the mood. 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: gender-fucking burlesque and variety, a charming hostess to make the introductions, and an informal setting for conversations and future kisses.

8-9pm: games and direct introductions with your host and social connector for the night, Kita St Cyr, the caramel cutie with the apple booty. 9-10pm: mingle with and enjoy performances by (usually weird, queer, non-traditional) burlesque performers. 10pm-close: drinks & socializing. This delightful evening is created for you by Kita St Cyr on behalf of HoS.

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)

Upcoming 2018 dates: Nov 9, Dec 14

NEW FOR 2018! We are moving our member mixer & burlesque lounge Under Cover to its own night, but in the meantime we want to try something new. We'll be opening doors an hour early, and our fabulous burlesque hostess and social connector Kita St. Cyr will be here 9-11pm to introduce new members to old timers, explain how the whole HoS thing works, and generally make a delightful fuss over your presence. There's no separate door cover for this pre-makeout mixer - it will be included in Lip Service cost. We're going to bring back our foreplay happy hour 9-10pm with $2 PBR, $4 Yuengling and $6 well drinks.

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?).

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 the place to get approved for those events & buy tickets for each month's Countdown.

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.

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 these guests in the context of these games, 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.

Lip Service RSVP
Please supply an email for each PAL, so we can match you at the door and get in touch if needed.

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 Code of Conduct for detailed dress code description.

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...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.



Every third Sunday: Sex Lit (Stoya's Book Club) or Rated Sex (Stoya's Film CLub)

Upcoming 2018 dates: Oct 21

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 Anais Nin's A Spy in the House of Love, whose heroine Sabina is deeply divided between her drive for artistic and sexual expression on the one hand, and social restrictions and self-created inhibitions on the other. Written when Nin's own life was taut with conflicting loyalties, her protagonist Sabina repeatedly asks herself, can one indulge in one's sensual restlessness, the fantasies, the relentless need for adventure without devastating consequences?

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.

Stoya's Book Club, a teaser.

Ever wanted to try fisting? Have you been intrigued but thought it was too extreme? Then this class may be for you! From 101 to 401 level information, we will guide you through everything you need to know about Fisting; why people enjoy it, how intimate it can be, important anatomy, and how to give or receive a human fist. We will end with a live demonstration with an experienced bottom, Chiffon, who will be able to answer questions and provide a bottom's prospective.

Some topics to be covered:
- Human Anatomy
- Desire to try and emotional benefits
- Preparing physically and practically
- Anal vs. vaginal fisting
- A live demonstration(!)

We'll provide you with any relevant props and 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.

Our teacher: Vonka is a BDSM event organizer, and burlesque & fetish performer. Vonka has been a sex worker and active leader in the kink community for eight years. Her experiences range from orchestrating both small and large group sex scenes to extreme S&M.

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. We've noticed there are many of you for whom our parties are that exciting first step, and we thought we could help you along the way by having these small, dedicated, hands-on sessions.
