2016 PnP Commodification Camps

Post by some seeing eye » Fri Sep 25, 2015 5:56 pm

Did you hear the one about the proposed 2016 luxury swingers camp out of LA? Here is what they say about their selectivity and application process for all their events: "who wants a room full of unattractive naked people". Their camp "will feature all the trimmings of their other luxury events, with the added benefit of 70,000 other half-naked, desert revelers" :(

Anybody else notice that? They just negated their own reason for going to burningman. Now they can go to some resort full of attractive people, instead of a place filled with people.

Anybody have any idea where these fine folks will be preening their feathers this year? Did they get placement? Because, you know... Weed blowers... :twisted:

I think Simon called this one. I can appreciate that some folks may get into trolling and posting speculation intended to incite anger and frustration... but that behavior is generally unwelcome.

By all means, if you have some credible information about a possible turnkey/plug & play operator that may be planning to operate on the playa in 2016, send an email to placement@burningman.org with links and a screen shot of relevant adverts (do not post them here). While the team is currently extremely busy, they also take reports of these kind of operators very seriously and are happy to investigate and shut such operators down.
