BABALONIA: A KINK-FRIENDLY RITUAL PLAY PARTY WITH SEANI LOVE & WILRIEKE SOPHIA
BABALONIA: COME TO THE RED MASS
Come and worship in a different kind of church. A church where Babalon rules and her disciples celebrate life with ritual, eroticism, power, and play.
Step into a mysterious world and get initiated by Babalon herself. Dive into a luscious place of intense sensory experiences!
BUT WHO IS BABALON?
Babalon, The Red Goddess, Whore of Whores, the super empowered s’xual female divinity, equally at home in love, lust, and rage. Loved and despised in equal measures in the world but tonight she is honoured in all her sacred glory.
Babalon, like all mysteries, has her origins in lost histories, with series l stories told, retold, lost and reclaimed. Today we call upon her to hold is as we hold each other in this divine ecstatic rite.
WHAT’S A KINKY PLAY PARTY?
This is an experiential play party for the sensually adventurous. This event welcomes ALL and is very gender friendly. This is an invitation to dive deeply into yourself and each other in ways you may have been afraid to do in the past. We create an expansive, feeling-full environment charged with electricity, yet warmly grounded and earthy, in a venue that is designed and created for the curious of fetish and kink.
This is a sacred container for exploring conscious BDSM, but also kisses and hugs in a relaxed, s’x-positive space. This play party encourages your curiosity about taking your own kinky play to the next level. This evening is a celebration of imagination and curiosity, so you may experience as many flavors as you dare.

➤ Bring your own toys and tools
➤ This is an event for people with at least some experience in s’x-positive spaces. You should be comfortable (though absolutely not obliged to participate in – on the contrary) with unclothed people and explicit action in the space.
➤ Be aware that these spaces zoom in on your ease & challenges. You need to be comfortable with that.
THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR YOU IF:
➤ You have never been to any intimate, kinky, and/or s’x-positive events before (when in doubt, send Wilrieke or Seani a message to check in whether this is for you).
➤ You are looking for easy s’x. You won’t find it here. Likely you will be confronted with a needy/greedy attitude.
➤ You are uncomfortable with your own discomfort, triggers and/or emotional processes.
➤ You have trouble with social interactions, feel challenged by being in a group.
➤ You have unresolved trauma around s’xuality, intimacy and/or group spaces.

The full address will be sent once you purchase your ticket.
WEAR whatever you want. Bring some layers, as you might get hot. bring some options, because you might change your mind. You can play with what you want to embody or experience: maybe a hidden part that desires some unveiling? A part you’d like to celebrate? Something that makes you feel safe to be in an exciting environment? Your favorite latex dress or leather onesie? Your straight jacket? Your pajamas? Nothing at all? Do bring something to cover you in case you are a smoker: smoking can only be done outside and fully dressed.
Q. WHY GENDERED TICKETS?
A. We want to include everyone, whatever your gender or identification is. That means there’s space for everyone, without one group getting overrepresented. Therefore there are tickets for people who identify themselves as male, female and other.
Please only buy a ticket that represents your (chosen) gender – and not any other ticket. Sold out = sold out.
Q. SHOULD I BE NAKED?
A. This is absolutely a body-positive event. Nudity is welcome but only be naked if you desire. That’s never an obligation.
Q. DO I INTERACT WITH OTHERS?
A. That’s completely your choice. Depends on your mood. Being a witness is a perfectly valid way of participating.
Q. WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO INTERACT WITH CERTAIN PEOPLE?
A. Then you don’t ;)
Q. DO I BRING FOOD?
A. We will provide basic tea and snacks. Bring something for yourself if you have a particular need.
Q. WHAT IF I CAN’T COME ANYMORE?
A. We don’t take tickets back and don’t mediate in selling tickets. (See our terms and conditions, www.exploringdeeper.com/terms-and-conditions). You are free to sell your ticket to someone else. Please respect the gender of the ticket, and in case we send pre/aftercare emails, forward them to the person you sold your ticket to.
