The UTSEC orgy that wasn’t

‘It’s not a planned group sex event; it’s an event where you are able to have sex on the premises.’

by Emma Teitel

The “epic sex club adventure”, or, more specifically, The University of Toronto’s Sexual Education Centre’s annual Sexual Awareness Week, was big news in Toronto Tuesday morning. The UTSEC will host a party at the Oasis Aqua Lounge–a sex club in downtown Toronto– on January 21st. Although the group denies that the event is an orgy, everyone else is pretty much convinced that it is.

In the words of one very enthusiastic University of Waterloo student and reddit user: ”UofT is holding an orgy, and you’re invited! You just need your student ID. (It’s for UTSEC’s sexual awareness week…and sex positiveness of course…)”

Sadly, things are not always as they seem.

Aspiring swingers take note: I spoke to one of the event’s organizers this morning and learned more about the “epic sex adventure”: There will be free condoms, free lube, sex swings, bondage, a dungeon—and even finger foods. The only thing there won’t be much of is actual sex. According to Dylan Tower, a UTSEC coordinator, a total of four people consummated their love in the bowels of the Oasis Aqua Lounge at last year’s party (there were 80 guests in attendance). Who were these swingers exactly? Two monogamous couples.

So much for an orgy.

Q:What makes this event different from an orgy?

A: It’s not a planned group sex event; it’s an event where you are able to have sex on the premises.

Q: In the news it says that your event will be monitored by volunteers. That’s kind of hard to imagine. What exactly will these volunteers be doing while people are having sex around them?

A: We would be looking for anyone who would be heavily intoxicated and might need help ensuring that they’re safe, or people who might be a little bit confused, and need the rules explained. Or if someone is a little bit too enthusiastic.We’re going to have volunteers specifically in that dungeon area. [where the bondage activity takes place]

Q: Will the volunteers be wearing t-shirts?

A: Arm bands, because the event has pool service. They’ll remain moderately clothed, [in case] somebody is intimidated by nudity. An orange arm band worn on the right side indicates the hanky code, a flagging method for people who are into different sexual acts.

Q: Can the volunteers participate?

A: When they’re not on shift they’re able to enjoy all the amentities that the club has to offer.

Q: Will there be snacks?

A: Last year they provided us with some snacks; finger foods, small sandwiches. I hope they do again this year. There’s also a Golden Griddle outside.

Q: Any forbidden sex acts?

A: There is something called the Adam’s Family rule that applies to the dungeon. No bodily fluids other than those involved in penetrative sex.

Q: If nobody has sex will the event be deemed a failure?

A:  Not at all. It would be deemed a complete success as long as everybody had fun.

Q: How many people had sex at last year’s event?

A: Four: Two couples.

Q: Two monogamous couples had sex separately?

A: Yes.

Q: Did you hype up the sex part of this event to get more people to attend?

A: No. I would say the motive is around the social and networking aspects of it. It’s hard to get out and meet people who would be into this lifestyle otherwise. We would love it if we could make all alternative lifestyles more accepted in our current social environment.
