At the annual Burning Man Arts Festival, it may be hard to get completely clean, but it's easy to be really dirty. In fact, many veteran Burners come every year for that very reason. And why the bleep not? As Doctor Sigmund Freud reminds us, sex is a very powerful motivator.

Each year nearly 50, people — mainly of the creative, open minded variety — descend upon Blackrock Nevada to create the living art installation that is Burning Man. This is designed to be a place that removes itself from the usual mores of society and creates a new way… at least temporarily. Seeing different images on TV of the nudity, apparent psychedelic drug use, and overall insanity could scare a lot of people off from coming. The hope of this guide is to provide a few welcome hints to Burning Man first timers and show what the true point of the festival is.

What was once a genuinely radical festival , based on principles of inclusion, decommodification, self-reliance and communal effort, Burning Man festival has changed somewhat. Of course, there is still a large core of regulars and those who attend in the true spirit of the Buring Man festival, the installations are pretty amazing, and the atmosphere is as intense as ever. Those that we mostly see however are the same old Instagram influencers, whose habit of taking similarly posed photos can make even an event like this seem like we've seen it all before. Luckily, we here at Bored Panda have managed to compile a list of awesome Burning Man photos from this years event, scroll down below to check them out for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!

More than miles north of Reno, Nevada, is Black Rock City, an expanse of desert ringed by distant mountains that has been home to the annual Burning Man festival since the s. Started by a small group of artists in San Francisco in , the weeklong event is held around Labor Day every year. Most of the tens of thousands of attendees go to experience the openness, art, whimsy, freedom and — let's be real — the nudity. Nowhere in the desert basin, or the playa, do all of those elements coalesce more magnificently than in the orgy dome , an air-conditioned sex haven where guests can visit in groups of two or more. Its creators claim that 5, attendees cavorted within its folds last year. Here are his-and-her accounts of their experiences. The night we went to the orgy dome, the line was super long. I didn't realize there was such a process to getting in. We were interviewed to make sure we were sober enough to consent and [to check] that we understood all the rules. Verbal consent is necessary to begin play with other groups and to introduce new activities.
