Respect the boundaries of others

Seek assistance or support from the facilitators or assistants as needed

What if I’m new to sensual spaces?

Sensual Sauna events welcome all levels of experience, including those new to such experiences. We aim to create a safe and inclusive space for exploration and connection. Our friendly assistants and facilitators are here to support you if you have any questions or concerns.

What activities may happen?

Activities may include authentic relating exercises, embodiment practices, sensual touch (non-genital), connection exercises, sensory experiences, and more. These activities are designed to promote connection, intimacy, and presence. Everything is optional, and there is no pressure to participate in anything.

What should I wear?

You are encouraged to wear clothing that makes you feel comfortable in a sauna and hot tub. Nudity is welcome but absolutely not essential. People wear swimsuits.

Is consent important?

Consent is a fundamental principle in all our events. All activities are rooted in consent, and attendees are encouraged to communicate boundaries and ask for consent before engaging in any activity.

It is up to you to act with integrity with your boundaries, and the facilitators and assistants are here to support you in this.

What should I bring?

Pack for the spa, darling!! We recommend bringing a towel, a cosy robe for comfort, flip-flops, and a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the event.

We will not provide any of the above, so please come with everything that will make you feel comfortable.

What will the evening consist of?

The evening will involve connection games, encouraging participants to interact and build rapport. Following the games, attendees will have free time to connect at their own pace and in their own way, guided by their desires and boundaries. The event will have live music, snacks, and various sensory experiences to enjoy.

Should I eat prior to the event?

We recommend not eating heavily before the event to engage in the sensory experiences fully- but please do ensure you don't feel hungry. Snacks will be provided to keep you nourished. Please ensure you are well-hydrated throughout the evening.

Are there opportunities for solo/group experiences?

Yes, Queer Sensual Sauna offers a blend of solo and group experiences. You are encouraged to explore as you feel comfortable, whether that means connecting one-on-one, joining group activities, or taking moments for personal reflection.

Can I leave the event early if needed?

Absolutely. You have the freedom to exit the event at any time if you feel uncomfortable or wish to take a break. Your comfort and well-being are paramount, and we encourage you to prioritise self-care.

If you need to leave at any time, please inform the facilitators so we can ensure you are supported.

What about confidentiality?

Confidentiality is paramount for us, and we always aim to create a space where participants feel secure in sharing and exploring without fear of their experiences being disclosed outside of the event.

We discuss confidentiality at the beginning of the event and ask that all participants do not share the name or identity of anyone else at the event.

What about gender?

Queer Sensual saunas are a gender-celebrating and gender-affirming evening centring queer and trans joy, meaning all trans and queer bodies are welcome and celebrated. We know how scary it can be as a trans/GNC person to wear swimsuits/shorts, and we hope to make this a space where those worries can be quieter, even if just for an evening.

Please avoid making assumptions about gender and respect individuals' pronouns and identities; if you want to learn more about gender, you can do so here: https://www.thetrevorproject.org/resources/article/understanding-gender-identities/

Our events do not aim to adhere to ‘gender balance’, and no activities will be based on ‘gender pairing.’

We invite sensuality, intimacy, and connection from a human need perspective to co-regulate through the presence of touch that goes beyond gender.

What are the temperatures of the spa areas?

The sauna temperature is typically maintained between 80-90 degrees Celsius, while the hot tub is around 38 degrees Celsius. We strive to ensure a comfortable and relaxing experience for all participants.

We offer a cold plunge experience with a temperature typically hovers around 8 degrees Celsius. It's a refreshing and invigorating option for those who wish to partake.
