Okay, that’s one “like”. So let me expand. Again, any commentary
will be greatly appreciated.
Some basics would be… nudity definitely approved of… this is a common
thread through all of the festivals I’ve mentioned above.
Recreational drug use definitely approved of… at least marijuana and other
hallucinogens like LSD, peyote, etc. Alcohol would definitely be allowed.
How many of you have passed a bottle of Fuki plum wine around a campfire?
(this is sometimes called a “Black Hole”, because once you are pulled in by
this exceedingly sweet, wonderful plum wine, you probably won’t leave)
There is always music, at any of these events. It can be offered for free, or
as outside bands, but whoever does it would have to be a part of the community
nonetheless - those who cannot accept nudity, sex, and drugs would not be
welcome to participate at all. I’m betting there will jams, drum circles,
ritual music, etc. performed by the participants, and accept all who wish to
join in. An open stage might be a good idea
Food would be provided by the participants. The Hog Farm provided a lot of
food at Woodstock, and I believe I saw in videos of Burning Man that different
people/groups have provided free bacon, coffee, etc.
I have been at events during which sex in more or less public venues was
practiced. At Starwood I have seen it in the presence of children during a
nightly bonfire. The children were mostly just bored by it.
I once listened in, from a distance, on a group of 6 young teens at Pennsic
War who were trying to find more condoms for a last-day group sex orgy. The
children appeared to be about 12-16 years old. I saw something similar
at Starwood. In this age range, an exception for close in age would probably
apply, so would be legal. But it would be nice to have a community that would
actually nurture teen sexuality instead of speaking/acting against it.
We could have something similar for those over the age of consent. A large
tent or so. It might even be set up as a sort of brothel, however, no money
should change hands on site. Since age of consent is 16 in NH, 16 year-olds
would be allowed to seek the services of a “prostitute”, or serve as a “prostitute”.
Actually, even thirteen year olds would be allowed to be either “prostitutes” or
“clients”, so long as the sex would be only with those 17 years old or younger.
These “prostitutes” would be available in the “brothel” during a given shift,
to serve the needs of the “clients”.
Maybe at the end of the day the “clients” would throw a feast for the “prostitutes”,
maybe with other entertainment as well.
Of course, dungeons would probably be set up for those with a kinkier bent.
While I personally would opt for no weapons, as a liberty person I must accept
the open carrying of firearms or other weapons. However, the site of an
otherwise naked person dressed only in firearms, in my imagination, looks
Tattoo artists have been a mainstay at many of the festivals I have listed above.
As has body painting, and piercing booths.
Some kind of “burning man” might be set up, for the closing bonfire. I have seen
videos of this at Burning Man, and as a participant at Starwood.
Religious services have been offered at Pennsic for at least Catholics,
Protestants, Hindus, Moslems, and Pagans/Heathens, that I know of.
I have taken part in Church of All Worlds spiritual programs.
Security would mostly handle lost children, lost objects, drunks in the middle of
the street, and persons who become aggressive, as well as manning the entrance
gate(s) and parking.
[Edit: We would have to have a competent medical staff. These would have to be
professionals, just for legal purposes]
