XL Tantric Celebration Play Party – with Wilrieke Sophia
05/09/2020 @ 13:00 - 23:00 CEST
The first Play party after months of lockdown. Come smooch, come touch, come dance!
NOTE: if you show any symptoms of C19, flu, or anything contagious, or had symptoms in the two weeks prior to this event – don’t come!
This is an XL, extra-long play party, with a SLOW start – as some of us may not have had much physical interactions for months!
we will be in a brand-new location. Central Utrecht, easy to reach, free parking. Address will be emailed to you in the days before the event.
Welcome to the Tantric Red Play Party!
Join us for a day of sensual, luscious exploration in an all-embracing environment of like-minded people!
This is an event covering the afternoon ánd evening. During the afternoon there’s a workshop. This workshop will have a different theme each time, and is sometimes given by Wilrieke Sophia, and sometimes by a guest teacher. Think of: bondage, ritual play, wheel of consent, sensual touch, energy s.x, crafting your own flogger, and who knows what else!
The afternoon workshops also covers play party etiquette, the B-Smart safer intimacy tool, consent agreements, and before anything else, we will take time to land, get to know each other, and tune into our needs and desires.
We create a shared vegetarian potluck dinner. After dinner, we slowly float into the freefall play party part of the event.

A RED PLAY PARTY
This is an experiential play party for the sensually adventurous. This event welcomes ALL and is very gender friendly. This is an invitation to dive deeply into yourself and each other in ways you may have been afraid to do in the past. This is the play party you want to come to even if you’ve never been to a play party before. We create an expansive, feeling-full environment charged with electricity, yet warmly grounded and earthy. A safe and sacred container for exploring kisses and hugs in a relaxed, s.x-positive space. This play party encourages your curiosity about taking your own sensual play space to the next level. This evening is a celebration of imagination and curiosity, so you may experience as many flavors as you dare.
This is a red play party. This means we welcome nudity and s.xual interactions. There is no pressure for you to participate in s.xual, sensual, or any other activities. We do ask you to feel comfortable with nudity and s.xuality in the space.
An explanation of the colors:
White: this is an event for all levels of experience. Clothes stay on, there’s no s.xuality or nudity.
Pink: this is a moderate event. partial nudity is allowed. There’s no s.xual interaction during the workshop.
Red: full nudity and s.xual interactions are allowed (but never mandatory).
This event is explicitly all-inclusive. This means we welcome people of any gender, relationship constellation, and cultural background. We welcome spicy, juicy, spiritual, vanilla, non-vanilla, as well as down-to-earth intimacy.
Couples may choose to stay together if that feels the most important for them.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:
Wilrieke Sophia is an international coach, facilitator, and practitioner in the field of s.xuality based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She openly combines being a mother of three daughters with working in the field of s.xuality.
The main pillar of her work is the same across the broad spectrum of things she brings: empowerment through self-knowledge, embodied experiencing of boundaries and desires, and extensive practice of consent.
She hosts s.x-positive events and play parties, workshops and retreats focussing on sexuality, kink, tantra, and ritual, and hosts intimacy festivals. In her client sessions, she welcomes people of all genders and supports them to embrace their s.xuality, supporting them to build a positive body image, release shame and negative conditionings, and welcome pleasure. She also runs the non-s.xual Cuddle Workshops International and brings facilitator trainings.
Close to her heart is bringing the topics of intimacy and s.xuality to the mainstream conversation. She has been writing, blogging, and creating videos about s.x and intimacy since 2011. In 2019, her work has been featured in national newspapers, magazines, and television. In October 2019, Wilrieke climbed the stage of TEDx with a talk about empowerment through intimacy and s.xuality.
She is the founder of Knuffelworkshops Nederland & België and Cuddle Workshops International, holding teacher trainings and master classes for practitioners and facilitators.
Besides all this, she’s a mother of three daughters and she holds a MSc degree in Forest and Nature Conservation.

MORE PRACTICAL INFORMATION
This events takes place in a beautiful venue in Utrecht. Parking in this area is free. Public transport is great. Check 9292ov.nl for info on public transport.
BRING A SHEET. The venue provides mattresses, which we cover while playing for hygiene reasons. It can be nice to bring blankets, sheepskins, cushions, etc. Anything that makes you feel extra comfortable, soft and fuzzy to make yourself a personal nest on the floor
WEAR what makes you feel comfortable during the workshops. Bring some layers, as you might get hot. For the evening you can play with what you want to embody or experience: maybe a hidden part that desires some unveiling? A part you’d like to celebrate? Something that makes you feel safe to be in an exciting environment? Your pajamas? Or do as I do and bring different options, so you can choose in the moment.
Please EAT before you arrive. To keep tickets at affordable pricing, we ask you to bring some (vegetarian) dinner to share if you come for both events. If you bring a bit more than just for yourself, we will end up with a luscious, abundant dinner. Made or bought with love is equally fine!
We will provide tea, water and snacks.
CAN I COME EARLY?
The doors open 30 minutes before the start of the event. Before that, doors won’t be open.
SHOULD I BE NAKED?
Only if you desire. That’s never an obligation.
DO I INTERACT WITH OTHERS?
That’s completely your choice. Depends on your mood. Being a witness is a perfectly valid way of participating.
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO INTERACT WITH CERTAIN PEOPLE?
Then you don’t 😉
DO I BRING FOOD?
Yes. We provide tea and snacks. You bring (vegetarian) food for the potluck dinner.
WHAT IF I CAN’T COME ANYMORE?
We don’t take tickets back and don’t mediate in selling tickets. (See Wilrieke’s terms and conditions). You are free to sell your ticket to someone else. Please respect the gender of the ticket, and in case we send pre/aftercare emails, forward them to the person you sold your ticket to.
DO I BRING TOYS OR ROPES?
You can bring ropes, or other toys that may increase your pleasure for the play party in the evening. We will provide some things for shared use.
WHY GENDERED TICKETS?
We want to include everyone, whatever your gender or identification is. That means there’s space for everyone, without one group getting overrepresented. Therefore there are tickets for people who identify themselves as male, female and other.
Please only buy a ticket that represents your (chosen) gender – and not any other ticket. Sold out = sold out.
WHAT’S A TANTRIC RED PLAY PARTY?
A Tantric Red Play Party is a co-created space of endless exploration based on your own desires and boundaries. Within that playground, there are endless possibilities!
Co-creation means that we start together in a circle. There are agreements (like confidentiality, respecting relationship agreements, taking care of your own wellbeing, and a few more) that we share and, if you want to stay for the rest of the night, agree to by raising your hand.
We share our mildest and wildest desires as well as our fears. There will be heart opening exercises, and reminders of how our YES, NO and MAYBE’s feel in our bodies before we smoothly transition into free play.
