April 7, 2pm-5pm-Pre:Con-How to Host Your Own Kick-Ass Play Party with Reid Mihalko

  • Ever thought about throwing your own erotic gathering, but not sure whom to invite or what mistakes to avoid?
  • Maybe you already tried hosting one, but ran into bumpy starts and awkward situations where either nothing happened or everything crashed and burned horribly?
  • Perhaps you’ve successfully thrown an orgy, and now you want to take your play parties from good to mind-blowingly awesome?

If you’ve ever wondered what the best practices for throwing a kick-ass play party are (as well as how to avoid the most common drama-creating, mood-killing pitfalls), then join “America’s favorite sex geek,” sex and relationship educator Reid Mihalko of for a 3 hour “bootcamp” as he shares his unique approach and design for hosting sex-positive, consent-based play parties.

Having run over 250 play parties attended by more than 3000 people, Reidwill break down these essential elements required for hosting a smooth, fun, community strengthening play party event:

In this humorous and informative workshop, Reid will touch upon:

  • What “safe space” means when applied to play parties
  • The biggest mistakes and how to avoid them so you don’t have to learn the hard way and hurt your friends
  • How to build a strong event container that will make hosting play parties easier for everyone involved
  • Assessment techniques and protocols that will make inviting “the right” people a no-brainer
  • Techniques that will help you run a play party so smooth that you’ll be able to frolic, too!
  • Ways to role modeling healthy, empowering community behaviors around consent and communication
  • What to do when things go wrong and how to help your community clean up it’s messes and mistakes

There’s only so much we can cover in 3 hours, but what we will cover will help you and your attendees have more fun, connection, and sex with greater peace of mind, less effort, and waaaaaay less drama.

Time: 2pm-5pm
