The puuurrrfect date night treat...

Join us for an evening of delicious connection with that special someone in your life. This is an incredible opportunity to experience more pleasure, fun, and sexiness together through a potent “dance" form called Contact Improvisation.

A collaboration between Amy Baldwin of Pure Pleasure and Daniel Mollner of Contact University, this event is open to all couples/partners/lovers who are excited to explore each other through consensual, full-body touch. Clothing will stay on at all times and you will stay with the person you came with for each of the sensual activities we have designed for you.

Leave feeling energized, connected, and most likely a little TURNED-ON! Mmmmm...

No experience necessary. Lovers of all orientations and genders are welcomed.
