What we're about


The DC Authentic Singles Meetup is the local DC (Tri-State) community for the Authentic Singles Dating national program, https://authentic.singles (https://authentic.singles/). We are an alliance of coaches, sexual educators, and Authentic Relating (https://authentic.singles/what-is-authentic-relating/) facilitators with a common mission: teaching men and women how to have more love, more fun, more passion and better sex in their lives, and providing opportunities for people to meetup and have the real conversations that matter.

Many of our events are via Zoom but we have local events in the DC area as well. If you would like to run your own event, and you have some experience in Authentic Relating, please reach out to me through the Meetup or at info@authentic.singles.

I hope to meet you soon in one of our Free Introductions to Authentic Dating (https://authentic.singles/authentic-dating-free-intros/), or else in person!

With love,

Marco Beneteau
Author, Sexual Educator, Intimacy Advocate

Online Movie Watch Party

Online event

Join the Pleasure Evolution tribe for our monthly movie night with this LGBTQIA empowerment story, The Prom. This comedy musical tells the story of a small mid-western town that cancels the prom, rather than let a young woman bring her girlfriend. A group of self-absorbed Broadway stars played by James Corden, Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and Andrew Rannells swoop into town to “save the day” while burnishing their own images. We gather online for a round of quick self-introductions, the film screening, and a post-movie discussion. “Ryan Murphy Turns a Message Musical About Tolerance Into a Fizzy and Elating Showbiz High” says Owen Gleiberman of Variety.

Online Being Social (Clothing Optional)

Online Via Zoom or Phone

This event is being produced in partnership with the Asheville Pleasure Evolution meetup. Pre-registration is required, see below. ________ New Year, New Administration. Let's be together on this day, however you are feeling. Intimacy is more than just physical touch or sexual appetite. Your soul and your heart want connection too. That’s why Pleasure Evolution hosts our bi-weekly “Being Social”: a communal event crafted to foster the love we feel for ourselves and the connections we feel with others. Being Socials have a structured conversational format. They consist of communication games and activities that encourage authenticity and emotional transparency, and whether you’re quiet and shy or raunchy and kinky, this judgement-free space can help you build social skills and confidence. Come join our tribe of Pleasure Evolutionaries, where Love is an Intention. Because now, more than ever, it’s vital that we remember: We are all connected. The zoom format will bring together people from beyond your town for fun, support, and deepening friendships. WEBCAM REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION. THOSE ON A PURE PHONE CONNECTION WILL BE EJECTED FROM THE ROOM. As several of our participants are nudists, we are now making this a CLOTHING OPTIONAL event. The only expectation is to show up and BE. Whoever you are, however you feel, this is a space of total acceptance. The gathering follows a structured conversational format. Facilitated by Sex and Relationship Coach and Healer, Rebekah Beneteau of Pleasure Evolution (and friends). The communication games we play make it fun to give and receive attention.
