What a great weekend! Announcing the next Sanctified… UNIFORMS!

What an amazing weekend it was! Intimate Horizon’s Sense Immersion – Alternative Speed Dating is growing in numbers, popularity and fun with new ways to make connections. Leading into the Sanctified Villains which saw a number of nefariously delicious examples of evil gracing our venue – we loved the amount of effort that people went into choosing their costumes and the very best were rewarded! Percy Peacock put on a very rude and lewd burlesque performance as the villain everyone loves to hate, the boss! Adam Apple seduced us all as their take on Jessica Rabbit. If you weren’t there, you missed out on a great time!

Weekend with Avalon in Sydney, 8th & 9th September was a fantastic rope workshop delving into the passion and source of Shibari, back to the basics and then out to advanced suspension and Semenawa ties. Big thanks to Michele Paolo for coming up from Melbourne to share their knowledge with us.

The next Sanctified is Uniforms themed, so get out your school gear, nuns, nurses, doctors, priests, any uniforms you can think of and kinkify and get down to our play party on Sydney’s only Sex on Premises BDSM venue! We’ll be having Alternative Speed Dating running again prior to the event so it will be another fun evening of socialising into a party!

We have got an absolutely huge weekend of Avalon’s Shibari workshops, Speed Dating, Sanctified Villians and the Fetish Markets coming up!

Welcome to Spring! And we’ve got a massive weekend planned!


First of all on Friday night we will be running Intimate Horizon’s Alternative Speed Dating event from 6:30-8pm, leading into the Sanctified Villians party! Come and meet new people and find new ways to connect, and then attend the party afterwards with your new friends and connective methods to unleash your most evil self! With a Medical Room/Mad Scientist lab, an underground lair, and an interrogation chair, time to let your inner Villian out! Attendees to both events will receive a ticket discount, see the pages for details on how.



Next up on Saturday and Sunday, Avalon from Melbourne will be returning to his home town for a weekend of Shibari workshops! Avalon is a spectacular rigger and educator who needs no introduction, but for those who do require it here are the links to his home pages


Avalon will be going through the ins and outs of his particular style, from harnesses to suspensions.

Saturday – 1pm-6pm – Intermediate/Advanced

Thank you Gala Vanting and Annie for their public punch up!

Big thanks to Gala Vanting and their lovely bottom Annie for hosting this edition of the Drum and sharing their experiences with the intimate art of Punching in impact play. Gala’s style of presentation is warm, lighthearted, well structured and thorough while being open ended. It was beautiful to watch Annie and Gala conduct a sensual and intimate scene, which may have surprised those new to the practice of using fists for impact play. We also loved the use of boxing gloves and equipment as enhancements to butt punching! Thank you to everyone who attended and who shared in the experience, and we hope to see you all next time!

We look forward to announcing the next presenter for September’s edition of the Drum, sign up to our mailing list to stay updated on the latest news!

The Drum – Monthly Femtop Fun Impact Play Peer Event – Feat Gala Vanting

Our guest presenter this month is none other than Gala Vanting! Gala will be sharing her passion for and skills in the art of Punching in an Impact Play context. Woo!

“I’m Gala Vanting. I’m working to create intelligent, compassionate, and justice-driven dialogue about sexuality and sexual cultures, sex education, gender, power, and inequality.

My work in the sexuality field has spanned 15 years and multiple disciplines. My areas of interest and expertise tend towards alternative sexual cultures, including sex work, BDSM, feminist and queer pornography, sex education and consent culture.  I am a sex worker, and have worked as a performer and producer of erotic media and a BDSM service provider. I write, speak, and make art about sexuality. I am an advocate for the rights of sex workers and queer folk, and I am working to decolonize the ways that manifests. I am a white cisgendered woman residing on colonised Gadigal country. I acknowledge that it was never ceded and is and will always be Aboriginal land.”



Sensory Speed Dating and Swing!

Next weekend for the first time at Sanctuary, we’re combining Speed Dating and Swingers! Intimate Horizons will be hosting Sense Immersion – Sensory Speed Dating from 6:30-8pm, followed by Love is Love – A Swingers Party for Everyone from 9pm-3am.

Come along and experience getting to know someone through your five senses! Whether through taste, sound, sight, touch, or smell, find a new way to make a connection.

Then try out your new found skills at Love is Love – Our Swinger’s party for everyone! Queer friendly, and inclusive of all genders and sexualities, we create a fun, safe and supportive environment to explore your sexuality. There is some light kink at the event, so this could be your door way into realms that you have longed to explore but didn’t feel ready for a full blown play party.

Attendees to both events will receive a discount off the total ticket price, get in touch with your proof of purchase to organise your online discount or buy them at the door! Tickets purchased online will be a total of $50 for both events, and those purchased at the door will be $60, which is a saving of $15 off your individual tickets.


What a night! Thoughts on the Documentary screening / Party on Friday!

What an amazing party at Sanctuary on Friday night! Everyone made an effort to dress up to the theme – there were archers, sorceresses, witches, wizards, knights and even a transforming dragon knight, burlesque performances (maybe a first of a strip-scale mail performance!) from the delicious Emmeline Spankhurts and Victoria Bitter. A brilliant game of choose-your-own-adventure Impact play session, free cake and generally a lot of fun, naughty activities taking place!
The documentary screening / social by Lock In prior to our event was packed, and we’d like to thank everyone for attending that and having a great time! The films were a fun and informative look at aspects of Pony Play, as well as screening the debut of a cheeky unscripted play session filmed between Azaria Byrne and Mistress Coco.
We’d love to see you at the next party, the next event is Love is Love – A Swingers Night for Everybody on the 17th of August, preceeded by Intimate Horizons‘s event Sense Immersion – Sensory Speed Dating. Femocracy Sydney is on in the afternoon and Threshold Sydney at night on the 18th of August.
And of course our next Sanctified party, Sanctified – Villians – An Evil Play Party is on September 7th! We’re really excited for that one, featuring burlesque performances from Percy Peacock and Adam Apple! Wooooo!
Much love and stay safe everyone. <3
