What we’re about

The Eros meetup is for passionate lovers of all kinds that are interested in sharing and learning about love, sexuality, relationships, and the ecstatic, creating more connection and capacity for enjoyment.  

This group will be exploring a wide range of topics in personal and broader societal and cultural contexts. Please be comfortable with explicit sexual language (hard to talk about these topics otherwise).  

You are welcome if you are single, a couple or poly…we welcome any relationship status, denomination, sexual orientation, gender identity and lifestyle. 

Here are some sample of the kinds of topics we explore:  

  • How to get what you want in relationships 

  • Ecstatic sexuality and states of consciousness 

  • What makes sex “mind-blowing”? 

  • New paradigm, next level relationships 

  • How to constantly fall in love with your partner 

  • How not to lose yourself in relationship 

  • How to flirt without being creepy 

  • Healing trauma through relationships and sexuality 

  • Transforming conflict in relationships 

  • Cultivating and channeling sexual energy 

  • Ethical nonmonogamy  

  • How to enjoy your body and increase pleasure of all types 

  • Cultivating desire and passion 

  • Exploring taboos, morality & ethics 

You might be asking…is this about “hooking up”? (Do people still call it that? 😉) Just like any other social setting, there is always the potential for meeting someone you click with. I met my husband in this very meetup group! However, the spirit of this group is learning in an open, playful, respectful environment – not a hookup space. Please do not reach out to people you have not yet met; you will be removed from the group if you do. And no pics – you know what I mean!  

You don’t want a relationship… 
You want a soul partner. Not a romanticized cliché, but rather someone who challenges you to be a better version of yourself. A partner who is willing to open deeply, reveal themselves and really KNOW you. Someone who encourages your uniqueness and remembers who you really are even when you can’t.  

You don’t want to get laid…  
You want mind-blowing sex, to be broken open, and stretched at the edge of your capacity for love, pleasure, and the divine.

Started in 2012 by Trish Blain, this meetup is one of the local pathway groups of NonOrdinary Society ( that offers new paradigm training and community for lovers of life and evolving edge facilitators and leaders. See a list of our groups HERE. (

Our Meetup History  
We have found that meetup attracts the kind of people we love — curious, passionate, renaissance creatives that care about the world and community.  
Before the pandemic, we held over 300 events and expanded into 7 cities based on partnership requests. Organized into eight "Pathways" of compelling topics, we were having a blast experimenting and growing our meetup network to over 50,000 subscribers.  

Our Meetup Groups in 2023   
We are excited to be offering meetup events again as ‘drop-in community’ experiences. They are a great way to get a low-risk introduction to NonOrdinary and to meet each other! Our Meetups are public events and are also listed in our Facebook group and on Eventbrite.   

Cultivating Community   
Skilled community is more important than ever; while we can offer ‘drop-in’ events through Meetup, we believe cultivating skills together over time is required to have a sustainable, rich, and productive community of badass collaborators. This requires a different container than can offer, which is why we are hosting our training community, NonOrdinary Society, on our own platform. You can learn more at
