I’m already in a relationship and it is really good. Why would I want to come to Beyond the Bedroom?
Yes! We have been learning for years by taking classes and have spent thousands of dollars to learn these. There is always something new to learn. Some things work and some things don’t, but you owe it to your relationship to attend workshops which will help your relationship grow. I have been told by many men that they don’t need any education and while we don’t want to shame anyone I certainly do feel sorry for that man’s partner.
Is there an age requirement to attend?
Yes, due to the explicit nature of this event, we require you to be at least 18 years of age. If you are not yet 18 and are interested in learning more about sex or have questions relating to sexual health and sexuality, we suggest you contact Planned Parenthood at www.pprm.org.
I’m single. Can I still come?
Absolutely! This event will provide information and instruction that is beneficial to you now and in future relationships.
Is this event strictly for heterosexual couples?
This event is about relationships and sexuality not about homosexuality versus heterosexuality. All are welcome. There are benefits for all.
Where can I get lunch?
There is a restaurant within the hotel. For those looking to explore other options, there are plenty of restaurants within the general vicinity and in walking distance from the hotel. However, this year lunch is included in the price of your ticket. This will allow you to have plenty of time to check out the vendors and we are going to have some entertainment during lunch this year.
Will there be nudity?
No. You might see pictures or videos that contain graphic information as a means for education, but there will be no gratuitous nudity.
Will I be able to get naked or do I have to get naked?
No, you will not be able to get naked at this event. This is NOT a clothing-optional event. Only those models participating in a live demonstration requiring nudity or partial nudity will remove their clothing.
Can I take pictures?
No photography will be allowed. Due to privacy concerns of our presenters, models and guests no cameras, cell phone cameras or other video equipment is allowed during any presentation or live demonstration.
Should any member of our security team see anyone using any type of recording or video device, that person will be immediately escorted from the premises and prevented from returning to the premises for the remainder of the event.
Can I use my cell phone?
I’m not a swinger and won’t attend a swingers conference.
Great! We are not a swingers conference, so there are no problems.. While we likely will have swingers in the audience could you even spot them? If you are a swinger this is still a fun event and educational and worthwhile for you.
I’m not into BDSM and won’t attend a BDSM conference.
Great! We are not a BDSM conference, so there are no problems.. While we likely will have people in the BDSM scene in the audience could you even spot them? Okay, you might, but this not a BDSM conference. We do have classes that will appeal to people who are in that scene just as they will appeal to people who aren’t.
What is BDSM?
BDSM = Bondage-Discipline-Dominance-Submission-Sadism-Masicism – It is a lifestyle that people can choose to become involved with that is usually at a higher level of integrity that your typical monogamous relationship. Beyond the Bedroom is not a BDSM conference, but an education in a wide variety of topics. Think 50 Shades of Grey.
What is Polyamory?
Polyamory refers to romantic love with more than one person, honestly, ethically, and with the full knowledge and consent of all concerned. Polyamory often involves multiple long-term committed relationships, either separately or together, but it can also come in many different forms. Some examples are:
- Open polyamory (committed open relationship or open marriage), in which the partners involved remain open to the possibility of additional loves and relationships;
- Polyfidelity, in which three or more people commit to having a closed relationship with each other and not getting involved with anyone outside the group;
- Single polyamorists, who may have several loves without a primary commitment to any one person, and who may or may not be looking for long-term partnership
