Word on the street is that the bodacious babes behind the Pussy Palace are making a bold new move in their quest to provide Toronto with hassle-free girl-on-girl booty calls. But unlike previous events, this one will be aimed at all the low-maintenance hoochies out there.



Anyone who’s attended one of the Toronto Women’s Bathhouse Committee’s previous Sapphic soirees knows the veritable cornucopia of sensual delights that have awaited them there. The second you stepped through the doors you entered an alternate universe of carefully constructed sex-positivity, complete with guided tours of the premises that included stops at massage rooms, lap-dancing nooks, a peek in at the temple priestess, cupid games and much, much more. All of the activities designed to put women in the mood have been provided by a horde of yummy volunteers, ever-so-eager to serve bathhouse patrons.



On Thu, Sep 16 the event will take a turn toward the DIY model with a no-frills Pussy Palace just like the ones the boys have available to them every day. Here adventurous gals in search of a little no-questions-asked, no-phone-numbers-given koochie will be in charge of what they give and get. As the committee puts it, it’s got all the flavour of the former bathhouses with none of the additives.



Carlyle Jansen, long-time member of the Toronto Women’s Bathhouse Committee, says the group would like to offer the bathhouse nights more frequently but the amount of work involved is huge. And with a human rights case still pending before the courts over the police raid four years ago they’re already pretty busy gals. Hopefully, a back-to-basics approach will allow the committee to provide more events with less work, as well as provide an opportunity for the gals who’ve attended previous parties to show off what they’ve learned.



(If you yearn for the luxury of the previous Pussy Palace events, don’t worry. There’s a plan to continue running bathhouses with all the trimmings; the committee hopes to be able to run at least one event of each type per year if they get a good response to this one.)



It’s always been the committee’s hope that the more nervous gals venturing into the bathhouse would find the various services a yummy way to warm up to more sizzlingly spontaneous action as the night went along, and to encourage gals receiving services to feel free to provide a bit of sexy service



themselves. After all, there’s nothing like receiving a sensual massage to put you in the mood to give one, right? Evidence that this strategy works has been demonstrated on previous Pussy Palace nights; where gals who just received a tantalizing treat from one of the many volunteers on hand were often observed being inspired to (ahem) share the wealth, to the great glee of all the lucky gals involved.



Pussy Palace Lite will expand on this tradition by providing a golden opportunity for all those lascivious and lovely lusty ladies with an opportunity to demonstrate just how truly bold ‘n’ bootylicious they are by putting more of themselves on the line, all in the name of expanding their sexual horizons. The only difference will be they’ll be operating more independently than usual at this event.



If you’ve always dreamed of dazzling the gals with your smooth and silky lap-dancing moves, bring a couple of sexy outfits and let ‘er rip. If you’re really feeling inspired, you could even hang out your shingle and do a hands-on training for a bevy of eager babes. The same goes for things like massages, cupid games and other deliciously decadent diversions – if you can think it up, you can provide it at the Pussy Palace Lite event. (Just remember it’s all volunteer-based. Nobody gets paid for her time at an event like this.)



Of course, not every gal who goes will want to do this – some of us are, after all, more into receiving than giving – but it’s likely there’ll be more than enough of us who do to get everybody’s motor running.



Another advantage of the more stripped-down approach is the increased emphasis on gals becoming more direct about expressing their desire for the sweet patooties who get their knickers in a twist. Gals interested in this type of space will be thrilled. More women will be attending this event with a renewed determination to cruise like the boys do – directly, succinctly and without the need for all the bells and whistles. Sure, it can be a lot scarier to approach that hot babe you’ve got your eye on than lining up for some guaranteed attention from a volunteer, but how else will you ever learn to get out there and ask for what you want, even if it means you risk getting shot down in the process?



Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started:



• Get into a hard-core chick-cruising mode before you arrive. That might mean going it alone so you don’t end up joined at the hip with your friends instead of prowling the halls like the sultry sex bomb you really are



• Start off with a bang by scheduling an early evening sex date with an existing lover to get you ramped up and ready to hit on all those gals out there waiting for you. Even if you are the shy type, there’s nothing like the just-fucked look to get the gals sniffing around



• Vary your cruising style. Saunter, sashay or stride the maze of hallways. Then, when you find a nook or cranny that particularly appeals to you (the sling room comes to mind), prop yourself up against the wall and wait for the gals to come to you. Make eye contact with everyone, indicating your interest (or lack thereof) clearly. If they respond to your slow, seductive smile, get your horny ass over there and tell them what you’re looking for. If they don’t get your nibbly bits in a twist, simply turn your head away – if they still approach, politely say “Thank-you, but I’m not interested”



• Expect rejection. It’s part of the game and isn’t about you, anyway. Someone either floats your boat or not, and if you go in expecting to hear a few nos you’re a lot more likely to hang in there till you hit the gals that can’t wait to say yes to you.



So whether you’re a seasoned bathhouse babe ready for the hunt or a blushing novice eager to have her Pussy Palace cherry popped, there’s a good chance you’ll find something at Pussy Palace Lite that’ll work for you. Organizers are crossing their fingers that they’ll see hundreds of fabulous femmes, sweet-hot butches, ever-appealing androgynes and tantalizing trans folk out. After all, if enough women and trans folk attend to make it financially worthwhile for the clubs, it could mean doubling the number of bathhouses they provide – and who could complain about that?
