• Beyond Monogamy: Open Relationships and Polyamory 101
    Today in the United States, more adults describe themselves as non-monogamous than who describe themselves as gay or bi-sexual, yet there are far fewer resources available for those who are beginning exploration of polyamory or open relationships. Maybe you’ve heard about non-monogamy through the increasing news coverage, or had a friend introduce you to the idea and you thought, “this might be for me!” This class will help you learn more about non-monogamy and give you a good foundation from which to start exploring. This class will cover an introduction to common terms and ideas, and give you a few questions to start asking yourself and your partner/s to help you get off on the right foot. The instructors, Isaac and Jordyn, will discuss their experience with over a decade of polyamorous living and relationships. No question will be too personal or invasive, so bring *everything* you might want to ask. Cost These classes are FREE for everyone!!

  • Beyond Grey: BDSM/ Kink 101
    So you read the book, saw the movie, felt something tingle. You are curious about bondage, sadomasochism, power exchange, and are interested in trying it for yourself. PLEASE STOP! Many of the technical details of 50 Shades of Grey, to say nothing of the unhealthy emotional dynamic, are not realistic, and are even dangerous. However, there is a growing and thriving REAL LIFE community of kinky people in Colorado, across the USA, and around the world who can help you learn how to explore these things safely. This class will cover the basics of BDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism) and let you know where you can find more resources right here in Denver, including gatherings, parties, and classes for every experience level. Finally, we will share with you best books with the most credible and reliable information available to ensure that you get off on the right foot and have a great time doing it. Your instructors are Isaac and Jordyn, who will be your guide in this introduction to BDSM. Each has been an active member of the Colorado BDSM community for years, and each has taught kink in several US cities. Isaac and Jordyn are staff writers for XCBDSM.com, a leading educational website for all things kinky and the hub for their educational work locally and across the country.

  • Denver Social Slosh: Ho-Ho-Ho-Holiday Edition at Platinum 84!
    For this Slosh, we're going to get down with our ho-ho-ho-holiday best, AKA our sexy holiday best! Think red, green, white, blue. Ugly Christmas sweaters. Titty reindeers (swear its a Thing. Google it. Pinterest it. Instagram it.) All that shit. Wear your fun and sexy holiday clothes, and come celebrate our LAST Slosh of the year! As always, keep it bar legal (no nipples, butts, or genitals/pubes visible). Come hang out with some cool alt lifestylers at Platinum 84 in Federal Heights! This event is posted in multiple places, the RSVP numbers are NOT accurate here. This event ranges from 40-80+ people. Friends, we're so happy to have our THIRD Slosh location: Platinum 84!! Platinum 84 is a sexy strip club that is thrilled to be working with our group. They serve alcohol, so it’s not full nude. It’s good to leave something to the imagination ;) Obviously, this venue is pretty dang different from any of the other Socials we’ve done so far. But we think it’s going to be fun and sexy! The staff is extremely nice and professional, and the owner himself emphasized that they are a low-pressure club- no one is going to harass you for money here. They want you to relax and enjoy their beautiful (and amazingly talented!) staff and enjoy their (very!) reasonably priced drinks. It’s going to be the perfect Slosh for date night! This is going to be a little different from our other Sloshes. You’ll need to come in the main entrance and get checked in. PLEASE tell them you’re with the Slosh or the CAL Social group, and you will get FREE admission AND a ticket for a FREE drink!! That’s right, free admission and Platinum is buying your first round (up to $8!). Woo hoo! They’ll also give you a wristband so it’s easy for the club and for the Slosh staff to recognize you as “with us”. Platinum 84’s happy hour is from 5-8 and is ½ price wine, wells, and drafts (so it’s seriously like $4 a drink for GOOD brands). And, if you feel like getting fancy, they have a great selection of $100 bottles that you can purchase for bottle service every Monday. Come have a drink before dinner, or treat yourself to an after dinner cocktail. We get a semi- private side of their covered, heated, and well-ventilated back patio. Unfortunately, tt’s not 100% private and it IS a smoke-friendly patio. So bring your cigars, vapes, greenery, fancy cigarettes, whatever your little heart desires and feel free to indulge! We should be getting our own bar out on the patio, and there’s even a pole out there. So we’ll have some eye candy to go with our socializing and drinks. If you get lost, ask the front desk (where you’ll check in) where the Slosh/social group is! I promise we're there out on the patio. Look for people with wristbands that match yours! ONLY at the Platinum Slosh: Feel free to be a little… Kinkier? With your dress or protocols. Please be classy and bar legal (no nipples, crotches, or butt cracks visible), but you should be comfortable having your slave kneel to give you your drinks or cigars (though we’re going to be out on a patio with hard pavers for a floor)! If a CAL staff member asks you to tone down behaviors, please listen (or we will ask you to not come back). We want this to be a fun and successful event for all Sloshers. There’s PLENTY of free parking here! Check out their [website here][http://platinum84.com/] for more information! What is the Slosh? This is a laid back kind of munch with a focus on schmoozing, milling, meandering and meeting awesome new friends. The Sloshes are all 21+(sadly). Bring a friend or two and come say hi! The Slosh is open to anyone who identifies as kinky, non-monogamous, or GLBTQIA+- lifestyles built around alternative sexual identities.

  • Denver's Social Slosh: Ginn Mill Edition!
    This event was canceled.
  • Denver Social Slosh Field Trip: Denver Distillery!
    It’s time for our LAST Field Trip of 2018, y’all!! To finish the year, we’re going to take a trip to Denver Distillery for a tour (yes like an actual real tour!), and then drinks and tasting and holiday fun. We will be embarking on a free tour of the Denver Distillery, learning all about how they make their tasty boozes. Tour starts at 5:30, so please make sure you are there early if you want to join us on the tour. Afterwards, we’ll hang out, socialize, and chat with friends new and old. We want to hear about your New Year’s resolutions, and I bet we could all use some come-down time from the frenzy of the holiday season. If you happen to show up after 530 while we're on the tour, never fear! I'll reserve space with our fancy schmancy CAL color ballons and you can grab a drink there! Denver Distillery makes their own spirits in house, but they also feature a full line of ciders and craft brews. So there should be something for everyone here, regardless of your libational orientation. They distill rum, gin, coffee liqueur, along with some different fruit infused liqueur. Seriously, they feature a strawberry-kiwi liqueur and a lemon-lime moonshine. Plus a pumpkin liqueur made with Colorado pumpkins, and an apple pie moonshine made with dry cider and spices! Check out their menu here-][http://denverdistillery.internethostingsite.com/] Additionally, they have some food on hand, too! They feature sweet and savory hand pies from Tip Top Savory Pies. Sounds like the perfect thing to munch while drinkin’. 21+ only please (sorry young people). Please wear appropriate clothing for an “open to the public” vanilla setting. Come say sayonara to 2018, and “hey girl” to 2019 with the Slosh! *** Denver’s Social Slosh is proud to offer a series of field trips to different breweries, cideries, wineries, and distilleries throughout the Denver metro area. These are in addition to the usual 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Monday Sloshes, and are meant to be explorations of the wonderful companies brewing in Denver with like-minded friends. No permission slips necessary, just come have fun and try some new things with us! Generally speaking, these are not kink-specific events and are held in vanilla establishments that are open to the general public. Please be considerate of others when choosing clothing and gear.

  • Denver's Social Slosh: Ginn Mill Edition!
    This event is posted in multiple places: the RSVP numbers are NOT accurate here! What is a Slosh? It's a traditional kink munch, turned into a cocktail hour and opened up to everyone who lives alternative lifestyles! This is a laid back kind of event with a focus on schmoozing, milling, meandering and meeting awesome new friends. There is no food here, but they have a sweet happy hour from 3-7 and just about everything is $2-$3. We often grab a bite at a nearby restaurant afterwards to soak up the beer though. Come have a drink before dinner, or treat yourself to an after dinner cocktail. We get a private back room (there's usually a sign out front by a secondary door that's open for us, or go through the main entrance, through the back door to the patio and through the door immediately on the right and head to the right). We also get an awesome bartender all to ourselves, so no need to worry about interacting with 'nillas or running into your boss! Whether you're brand new to kink, non monogamy, lgbtqia, or you've been doing it all for decades, this is the event for you! We're friendly, welcoming, open, and kind and happy to help you start if you're curious! Bring a friend or two and come say hi! The bar is also pretty easy walking distance to a light rail station, so whether you're sans car or just don't feel like driving, you can still join!
