House of Bacchus offers education through voyeurism, classes and experiences. Our beautiful house allows you a place that supports your sexual freedom. We believe having the opportunity to learn about ourselves physically, emotionally, sexually, and spiritually allows us to grow towards greater self understanding and spiritual openness. This is so important right now, because our society has pushed us into boxes of what sexuality looks like, and so many of us are breaking down those constraints. We are here to say that sexuality can look like whatever you want. At our house, EVERY PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT THEIR SEXUAL FREEDOM LOOKS LIKE and it should be respected. Come learn, Come respect our rules, Come play.
