We had 3 men and 3 women in the car, my wife and I had been to the party in previous years. We get there and a Ranger pulls up and asks the men to please turn their heads. We said fuck this and left.
Now, this is out in the open playa. If you want to hold a private ceremony, probably a better place would be in a dome or some other such enclosure, but the open playa is a public space. It ain't empowerment if 50% of the population are not only not invited to attend, but are told to look the other way. That is bullshit.
Only negative thing to happen out there this year, so I'm certainly not complaining in general.

I fully support the photographic policy of BM and am respectful and supportive of personal expression events such as Critical Tits. However, this year as my lady and I approached the gathering in the "public space of open playa" we were greeted by a sinister perimeter of men telling me to not trespass, as "no men were allowed." I was a bit dumbfounded, but complied with their wishes. As I looked inside the inner circle I saw men drumming and dancing. I asked one of the "guards" about it and the reply was " oh, you know...special privileges..." What's that all about? Open playa is public space. If you wish to hold a private event that excludes half the population, please encircle your private party with a set of RV's and don't be part of the community. Some suggestions on this thread are worth thinking about: hold it earlier in the week, make the time-location less public info and more word-of-mouth, etc.
All the best for future gatherings.

If you can't handle being topless or you feel you deserve a sheltered environment to do it, then BM is not for you.
