Vermilion aims to be an inclusive practice & play space for the sex positive, health, wellness, intimacy & conscious kink community, where conscious, consenting adults can dialogue, explore, connect, share, learn & play with games & practices both online and at in person gatherings, workshops, retreats & celebrations.
We share what we know and welcome other experiences. Anyone is welcome to create an offering; everyone has something to share. Our intention is the pursuit of vitality, connection, energetic cultivation, deepening love, pleasure, and ultimately freedom.
Vermilion was originally co-founded by Emerald May & Drew Lawson as both a community space and a business. As such we create Vermilion ticketed on and offline events, and co-create with other Vermilion members.
To attend our events, please join Vermilion facebook group and answer the membership questions.
To create a space that allows us to explore, we ask that all members follow agreements in all our spaces. If you feel anyone is contravening the agreements then please let an admin know. Anyone maybe removed from the group and not permitted to attend future Vermilion events at the discretion of the Vermilion Community Core Team. For example this could be because we have received multiple complaints, observed numerous rule breakings or your behaviour is not becoming of the VC ethos.
