Bridging Kink, Sex and Spirit

Surrender — November 13-15, 2015 — San Francisco

Nearly a thousand people came out for Dark Odyssey’s West Coast event last November, and we are thrilled to announce the return of DO: Surrender to the City by the Bay for 2015! Come learn, explore, and play in a no holds barred, sexually charged atmosphere. Interactive workshops fill your days, while at night you’ll explore dark dungeons, powerful rituals, passionate scenes, and mind-blowing ecstasy all under one roof in a proven scene friendly hotel in downtown San Francisco.

Join us as we combine sexuality, spirituality, education and play in an immersive environment where fantasy becomes reality. We are omnisexual – straight, gay, bi, queer, trans, and genderqueer. We are leatherfolk, kinksters, swingers, cross dressers, sex educators, Tantra practitioners, Pagans, and perverts.
