Upcoming events at a glance

Sun 1.20 - Sex Lit
Sat 1.26 - Countdown
Sun 2.3 - Bedroom Badass
Fri 2.8 - Lip Service
Sat 2.9 - BYOKink
Thur 2.28 - Under Cover

We host a few ongoing monthlies, from mixers to full-on playtime. Under Cover (every fourth 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).

Sundays are all about creating sexiness for your brain, not just your body, with either Sex Lit, our erotic book club, or Rated Sex, our erotic film club, co-created with famed pornographer Stoya on third Sundays. We're also excited to put Bedroom Badass, our series of poly- and kink-friendly relationship workshops, on a regular bi-monthly schedule on first Sundays.

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 2019 dates: Feb 8, March 8, Apr 12
RSVP TK | Event on Facebook | Event on Fetlife

9pm-late, 21+ (25+ suggested)
$20 with RSVP / $25 without / $0-$10 for monthly members
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - fill out form on top of page for address auto-reply
Please arrive with a PAL and be familiar with our Code of Conduct, including dress code

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?).

Feeling shy or wanting to meet new folks? Come early! Our fabulous burlesque hostess and social connector Kita St. Cyr will be here 9-11pm specifically to introduce new members to old timers, explain how the whole HoS thing works, and generally make a delightful fuss over your presence.

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. Yes, you can change when you get here.

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.

Curious about how BDSM might enhance and deepen your relationships? This class will introduce you to the basics of power exchange dynamics and how to incorporate them into your life in a productive and healthy way.

Topics to be covered include:
- Establishing safe boundaries through protocol and rule setting
- Options for part time play in the bedroom or a dynamic to govern your entire day to day relationship
- Seeking connection through domination and submission
- Creating your own tailored BDSM persona - nicknames and titles

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, and get your feedback on this and possible future workshops.

Our teacher: Mistress Couple is the Head Mistress of New York's oldest BDSM training chateau.

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 The Island on the Edge of Normal, by Guy New York -- who will be joining us for the event! Guy writes the blog Quickies NY, and has written over 50 erotic titles to date, from full length novels to short stories.

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.

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.

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.
