Lupercalia Rites: An Exploration of Primal Eros

February 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm





Intimacy Academy in partnership with GROWL NYC is proud to present:

Lupercalia Rites: An Exploration of Primal Eros

In ancient Rome the rites of Lupercalia honored the wolf mother, Lupa who raised the orphan founders of Rome. The aspects of the wolf, the primal eros were celebrated to purify the participants and celebrate fertility and prosperity in advance of the coming of spring.

Join the men of GROWL in this ancient rite of purification and a celebration of the aspects of primal eros of the wolf as we move deeper into the new year.

We will explore the primal in all its forms – incorporating BDSM, ritual “sacrifice,” and the fertility rite.

All bodies are welcome at this event: fat bodies, thin bodies, old bodies, trans bodies, young bodies, cis bodies, differently abled bodies; bodies of any class, race, ethnicity, religion, spiritual tradition, sexual preference or orientation. While there’s no way to guarantee that all bodies are represented that’s certainly the intention; so if you have a problem with any of the types of bodies listed, this is not the space for you.

We live in a racially diverse world & it is important to us that space dedicated to pleasure & erotic liberation reflect the ethnic & racial diversity of the world around us. We aim for a community of attendees that is at least 50% Black, Indigenous & other People of Color.

In order to keep the container for this event strong, please leave intoxicants at home.
