The Hottest Burning Man Orgy Dome Stories On Reddit

If you’ve never been to Burning Man, the term might call to mind spectacular DIY art installations, elaborate costumes, psychedelic drugs, and models posing for Instagram photos. If you’ve looked into Burning Man a little more, you might have heard about something else: the Orgy Dome.
The Orgy Dome isn’t a myth. There is, in fact, an Orgy Dome at Burning Man, and it’s been there every year since 2003. It’s run by a camp called And Then There’s Only Love, or ATTOL. Sometimes it’s also nicknamed “the Best F*cking Camp on Playa” (get it?). 
ATTOL’s website proclaims, “We pride ourselves in creating a sex-positive, consensual space for couples and moresomes [groups of three or more] to play during their stay at Black Rock City. The Dome is a safe, inclusionary, and exploratory environment. All couples and moresomes who are adults are welcome in the Dome — straight, lesbian, gay, bi, polyamorous and monogamous. We welcome the combination of love in all forms.”
According to ATTOL’s website, over 100 people run the camp, which along with the orgy dome includes a kitchen, shower, shade structures, and a “meet and greet” space called Aphrodite’s Garden. The Orgy Dome welcomes adult couples and moresomes of all genders and sexualities, but no unaccompanied singles. Attendees mingle and wait in line in Aphrodite’s Garden before entering the dome itself. 
Before they enter the Dome, each person listens to a detailed consent talk from a Dome Greeter. When they enter the dome, couples and moresomes can choose to go to “Just Us” area, or an “Open To More” area. In the “Just Us” area, each person has sex with the person or people they came with, with other couples and moresomes having sex nearby. In the “Open To More” area, couples and moresomes can approach others to ask if they’d like to join them — which everyone is free to either accept or turn down. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, one attendee mentioned that the camp provides condoms and lube, and that there are couches and pillows available to have sex on, as well as mattresses.
Along with being an air-conditioned place to have public sex, the Orgy Dome offers a variety of sex classes, with titles including “Hooking Up With Integrity,” “Group Erotic Massage,” “Sex For Introverts,” and “Squirting And Vagina Empowerment.” And according to ATTOL, over 10,000 people attended in 2018.
