With nightlife under constant threat of extinction, it’s good to know that one party has been thriving since about 200 B.C.—Bacchanalia. The parties for women, thrown in honor of the Roman god of wine, Bacchus, were legendary for their excesses: wild, secret festivals augmented by heavy drinking and plans to overthrow the government. Lesbian Sex Mafia is getting in on the ancient action with their own spin on Bacchanalia, a Roman BDSM orgy for women and transfolk. Mingle—or make out—with wrestlers, gladiators, goddesses, and slaves, who will be in attendance to tickle your toga . . . and much more.
