Being Social – An Evening of Fun, Love and Transformation

“Being Socials” are a fun way to meet new people, and get to know your friends even better. The invitation is to show up and BE, whoever you are and however you feel, because we set a tone of total acceptance. Like a party, but with structure, the communication games we play give you an opportunity to give and receive attention, and create surprising intimacy. From candid and hilarious, to deep and touching, each Being Social follows the same structure but is created by the people who are there. Come and play with us.

Introduction to Authentic Dating (Virtual)

Wednesday, September 18th, 7:30 – 9 pm
Sunday, September 22, 1 – 2:30 pm

Do you imagine that on a date you need to hide the real you, or pretend to be something different than who you are? And do you feel like the people you are meeting are being real?

Authentic Dating happens when people show up as who they truly are. It’s essential to meeting a partner that will really work for you.

Join us for one of these free introductions to Authentic Dating where you will meet our instructors and practice various connection exercises and games. This live video-chat event will be a fun, interactive, social learning opportunity. You may also acquire skills and gain important information about the opposite sex that could dramatically transform your love life. Learn how to attract the partner of your dreams, or, in the case that you are already dating or in a relationship, learn how to show up for them in a way that works for both of you.

Facilitated by Rebekah Beneteau, Sex and Relationship Coach, and Access Consciousness Bars Facilitator, and Marco Beneteau, Author of The Circling Guide.

IMPORTANT: These are free VIRTUAL events (over Zoom video-chat). A webcam is required to participate.
To get the meeting link, you must pre-register HERE

Play Parties

Infinity – An Authentic Sexuality Play Party (Asheville Area)

Saturday, October 19th, 2019
5 to 10 pm
Tickets $30 – $45
Pre-registration required

  • Who would You love, and how would you love them, if no one told you how it “should be done”?
  • What else is possible beyond what you imagined for your sensual life?
  • Do you wish you knew more like-minded souls to accompany you on your explorations into Sexual Authenticity?
  • Who would you be and how would you play if you gave yourself full permission to have your desires?
  • What would it be like to infinite choice about how you related to yourself and others?

Join us for an evening of fun and exploration as we experiment with what it means to have infinite possibilities in your sensual life. This is an opportunity to see and be seen, to touch and be touched. And as always, watching is participation. This is an all gender, all orientation event.

Opening Circle: Connection, Consent and Embodiment

During the opening Circle we will build a container of community. The icebreaker games will help you create connection to yourself and others in ways that may be new to you.

Amp up your own sexual energy and enjoy that flow as you interact with others. Dance in the exchange of eros at this evening of sacred communityand safe, playful experiential exercises. This is an opportunity to expand your ideas of intimate connection and what counts as SEX.  The most important rule of the evening is “don’t do anything you don’t want to do.” Consent and boundaries are all-important and we will help you find yours. Come feel your body’s joy and your heart’s longings.

After the opening circle games, we open up to Play!

This is a place where all parts of you are welcome: your hunger, your fear, your vulnerability and your power. A place where you are encouraged to give voice to your desires, to be seen and to see others. Magically, a room full of strangers will become a sacred community. Can you imagine tasting another’s soul?

Playtime is devoted to the Tantric concept “Everything is an Experiment.” What have you always wanted to experience? How much pleasure will you allow yourself? That might look like sharing a sensual experience with your committed partner in a space where other people are also playing. You might explore relating to someone of the same sex, or multiple partners. You might want to be in the energy of the erotic, and stay within your own energy field. No activity is expected or required, and anything safe and consensual is allowed. In fact, to watch is also to participate. There will be dungeon equipment, massage tables, erotic and snuggle zones available

Light refreshments will be served, and please feel free to bring fun contributions for the snack table.

THIS IS A DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE EVENT. Be here when you’re here.

This is a sex positive, sex permissive event. Come cuddle. Come kiss. Come dance in the flow of Eros and revel in exploring your Authentic Sexuality.


Think about this before you register. Do you take responsibility for yourself and your experiences? Are you somebody who knows your own wants and boundaries and can communicate them clearly…… and/or you’re willing to work and explore these areas for your own growth and enjoyment? Do you treat yourself and others with respect and kindness? Are you open and allowing of how other people express their gender, and sexuality? Are you willing to let go of your expectations and demands and be present to what IS with an open heart?

Be prompt. We will lock the doors to late arrivals in order to set a safe container. Leave whenever you like. Closing circle will take place around 9:30 or 9:40 pm.

Frequently Asked Questions

I would love to come, but do I have to participate?  PLEASE COME and enjoy the pressure-free company of like-minded individuals and leave whenever you feel full. Really. There will be no requirement for you to do anything you don’t want to do. We will go over party etiquette at the start, and watching is a totally acceptable way to play.

What do I wear? Dress code is street clothes to the door.  Once inside you can change into comfort, your sexiest attire, or nothing at all.

Is this a couples thing? Usually, about half the attendees come as a couple. The rest are single individuals of all genders.

What’s the gender balance? We try to keep registration fairly even, although last minute no-shows make it hard to predict. Please read this article for a deeper explanation.

Is same sex relating allowed? Hell yes! We support and encourage you to do what you are excited and/or curious about.

This party is an opportunity to treat all life as an experiment. Since our cardinal rule is Don’t do anything you don’t want to do!  YOU set the stage.  You are invited to dance in the space of eros, where sensuality and sexuality can be freely expressed without judgment. You can play with one or many. We will create a space that is safe, stimulating, conscious, and nurturing, and you are encouraged to explore yourself, your desires, and your limits by yourself and with others. And most of all, to HAVE FUN.
