TEMPLE OF EROS
For 11 years Monde Osé has celebrated love and sensuality, and this year we have the honor of celebrating these values at our next event in the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Assistance (now Paradoxe Theatre).
“The Church” has always been a place of worship, often built on power spots, or over ancient Goddess Temples of antiquity. So on this night we will channel the power of the land, and the church, to celebrate and worship the cornerstone of human existence and pleasure: EROS
“Our Lady” is the symbol of the Feminine energies rising, so on this night we invite the Goddess to take her rightful seat by the King, a metaphor for Divine Intimate Union between Masculine and Feminine, the 2 energies of the world to create life, vitality and joy!
From the stain glass windows, to the sacred geometry and symbolism of the architecture, we will have the opportunity to raise our sexual energies in a divine ceremony, among our friends and loved ones, at the world’s leading sensual entertainment playground: Monde Osé.
On this evening we celebrate Intimate Love / EROS, and revel in the joys of sexuality in the spirit of those famous archetypes and characters throughout history. Will you show up as star crossed lovers like Romeo and Juliette, or pay homage to the story of devotion of the Egyptian Goddess Isis and Osiris, who went to the ends of the world to re-member her partner and bear his child Horus – the Sun God? How about Adam and Eve, or his first wife Lilith? Maybe King Arthur and his inspiration of Camelot, Princess Guinevere? Or, the Sumerian Goddess Inanna, who travelled the underworld for 3 days and 3 nights, or her Greek counterpart Persephone? Anakin Skywalker and Padme of the Star Wars Universe? Cupid? Aphrodite? Shiva? Kali?
On this evening we will bring the Heavens and Earth together again, to create a paradise reminiscent of the “Garden of Eden“.
Ideas might include Greek, Roman, Pagan, Egyptian, or Norse gods or goddesses; Kings and Queens; Famous historical and fictional lovers; Veils, togas, gowns, robes, and lingerie; warriors of love; gods and goddess of nature, the moon, and earth; outfits, adornments, and symbols celebrating divine femininity, masculinity, queer love, and all the forms that love can take.
Our dress code, as always, is meant as a guideline to keep with the theme of our event and maximize the immersive experience of a Monde Ose party. This is a unique opportunity to get creative and dress as boldly as you dare. We ask that at a minimum, guests put in an effort to dress in a sophisticated manner as you would for any chic or formal occasion.
