Campmates who hiked out at Burning Man say the Orgy Dome is boring

Three female friends and their campmates who jetsetted to the desert last month for Burning Man have claimed the festival’s Orgy Dome is lame.

Zoe, a first-time burner at the culture and arts event, met up with her best friend Jes and Jes’ girlfriend, Ryan, for the eight-day party with some 70,000 revelers in the temporary city known as the Playa, north of Reno, Nevada.

She wrote for Business Insider that she went into the festival under the impression it would be ‘like Woodstock with less shade’ mixed with ‘some weird sex stuff’.

One of her campmates complained that the ‘Orgy Dome is so boring’ and men and women were required to listen through a ‘long lecture about consent’.

Burning Man has been a source of rampant sexual harassment since it first kicked off in the eighties – with 2018 marking its first year since the start of the #MeToo movement.

One of Zoë’s campmates said they had ‘to wait in line forever’ for the kinky dome, and ‘once you get in, it’s mostly just couples laying around’ and ‘the most organized sex you’ll ever have in your life’.

Another friend agreed – and chimed to add that the dome is a great place for a nap.

Outside the Orgy Dome, debauchery unfolded.

This included ‘naked women wielding leather paddles implore bystanders to pull their pants down for a spanking’ and ‘couples bedecked in feathers and dust masks’ as they prepared for their wild adventures.

‘Nudity is ubiquitous, and informally enforced in bizarre and ridiculous ways. 

‘Several ramshackle bars require women to bare their breasts if they wish to drink there.’ 

One man in the camp said he had to show his penis to get a snow cone.

Even more questionable, there was a ‘small sampling of activities available [such as] fellatio contests, something advertised as “p—y massages”‘ and ‘genital prints made in the “traditional Japanese method.”‘

There was such a thing as Slut Olympics and a ‘Bubbles and Boobs VIP Party’ that was advertised, ‘Bring your boobs!’

One workshop at the festival allowed revelers to learn to ‘write erotic poetry in binary code (010101).’

Many meals consisted of chili with a side of MDMA, warm Modelo, sardines and pickles. 

One campmate even said: ‘I think I’m immune to drugs. I’ve taken so much LSD that it no longer has any effect on me.’ 

By midweek at the festival, the three girlfriends were ‘looking haggard’ and ‘feeling more than a little unhealthy.’

First-timer Zoë recalled air that reeked of weed and mothballs. ‘Throbbing EDM music’ blared at all hours.

Next to a spiritual foot wash booth, there was a sign that promoted abortions for free.

‘Anything and everything you could imagine exists here… at the Healing Foot Wash down the road, you can wash your neighbor’s feet and hear all about the love of your prospective savior Jesus Christ. 

‘Just blocks from the Healing Foot Wash, another camp’s sign announces “Free Abortions!” with the words “No minors allowed!” scrawled in marker underneath.’

And just minutes down the road, toddlers played at a Kindergarten Kamp.

Overall, Zoë said during her time in Black Rock City, she was ‘welcomed home hundreds of times by strangers whose eyes are filled, almost uniformly, with the clear light of loving-kindness and acceptance.

It was like ‘being at a family reunion after coming out of a coma except every member of your family is an extremely attractive yoga instructor,’ she added.
