Wicked Explorations Play Party

MAR 23rd 8pm - 1am ∙ Columbus, OH

Don’t you just wish there were more parties for people looking to learn more about kink and their own sexuality? We hear you, we see you, and we have just the party for you! 

On March 23, we’ll be opening our doors for the Wicked Exploration Play Party. You’ll have the opportunity to attend a zero-pressure party that’s designed to give you the space you need to explore things at your own pace. You can watch or even take part in our expert-guided demos, receive personalized tutorials on the activities you’re curious about, be shown how to negotiate the scenes that excite you, practice empowered consent, and meet new friends along the way. 

We’ll have “tasting stations” open all night for you to explore various activities with our knowledgeable guides. There will be talks on consent and negotiations, tons of social opportunities, and, of course, the chance to play in our gorgeous space!

WHO THIS EVENT IS FOR

This is a great event for those who are new to kink, have taken a long hiatus, consider themselves sex-positive, or just want to expand their horizons with a new community of humans!

As with all of our events, we are a queer/trans, BIPOC, and sex worker safe space. This event is perfect for those who may not feel they “fit in” at other kink events due to their identity, profession, or orientation.

This event is perfect for anyone wanting to dip their toes into something (or someone) new and kinky, something that might feel intimidating if you don’t know where or how to begin, in a calm environment built on the principles of comfort and safety. 

Bring your partner, bring a friend, or just bring yourself. You’ll find what you’re looking for here. 

Wicked Explorations is a 21+ Member-Only event. You must have an active membership with The Autonomy Project to attend. For more information on Memberships, please visit: https://www.autonomyproject.org/member

DRESS CODE

When it comes to attire, anything goes at Wicked Eden, we want you to feel comfortable and in the mood to have an adventure! Wicked Eden is a place where you can wear as much or as little as you desire. We want you to always feel comfortable expressing yourself in whatever ways you desire.

VOLUNTEERS

We LOVE volunteers! Join our team of community volunteers, and you will find new friends, a support system and a tight knit center of empowerment. Once you have obtained membership as above, please check out the volunteering section of The Autonomy Project website.

By volunteering with us you will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives, but you will also get perks such as discounted or free access to our events and classes, and most importantly, collaborative input in what we do here. Your ideas are important to us, and as a volunteer, we want you to feel like you’re part of our community: one that celebrates who you are and supports your journey.

HIGH POTENTIAL, NO PRESSURES

Our community thrives in a space where countless delightful interactions could happen, but none are obligated to occur. Think of it as “high possibility, low expectations.” Outside of our general requirements of respect, you are under no obligation to interact with anyone in any particular way. This makes our space ideal for new faces and seasoned community members alike.

HIGH POTENTIAL, NO PRESSURES

Our events aren’t the product of one person hosting a party for pay; they’re the result of a community coming together and creating something new. Everyone who attends is expected to co-create: money, time, energy, enthusiasm, work, intention, example, concern and/or awareness. Have ideas, games, art, music to share? Want to bring them to life with us?

A FOUNDATION OF TRUST

Our gatherings are magical because of trust. We fiercely protect each member’s privacy, encourage honest risk communication, and take diligent care of our shared environments. It’s our collective respect and integrity that fortify this safe space.

CLEAR AND PRESENT CONSENT

Upholding consent goes beyond preventing harm; it’s about affirming everyone’s freedom to fully and joyfully agree to their interactions. It’s through this affirmation that our spaces thrive with genuine, unreserved participation.

INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY

We’re committed to inclusivity. Our community is a tapestry of individuals from diverse racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds, including all gender identities and expressions. We encourage everyone to engage with empathy and curiosity, always asking rather than assuming someone’s identity or preferences.

Our space is and always will be wheelchair accessible, with multiple spaces for varying sensory needs.

PLEASE NOTE:

No refunds will be given on ticket purchases. Address is provided to confirmed ticket holders after purchase. Wicked Eden is located on the south side of Columbus, approximately 10 minutes from downtown, and is one block away from a COTA bus stop.
