Back to the Body's 2019 Retreat for Couples

Back to All Events

New Orleans


Imagine Letting Your Erotic Imagination Expand with Your Beloved. There is nothing like New Orleans for reigniting your sense of playful sexuality.


Come together to disconnect from everything except each other.

It's hard to lay down in words the lure of this place. Every great writer in the land, from Faulkner to Twain to Rice to Ford, has tried to do it and fallen short. It is impossible to capture the essence, tolerance, and spirit of south Louisiana in words and to try is to roll down a road of clichés, bouncing over beignets and beads and brass bands and it just is what it is. It’s the perfect place to plant magical seeds of eros and watch them grow even deeper into in your life.  In a five night immersion we will cultivate a sense of erotic playfulness in everything we do which will open up your heart and your genitals.

When you leave, you’ll infuse that sense of sensual joy and power into everything you do.


Here's what will happen...
For Him and For Her

We will consciously be inviting what it is to feel sensual pleasure with all of our senses.

You’ll experience how to expand your orgasmic and creative potential, by accessing your sexual energy—and using it as sensual rocket-fuel for your life and your relationships.

This intimate and extraordinary retreat is limited to five couples who have been screened and accepted by our team.

The Back to the Body Team has never before offered a couple's immersion. This experience is going to dazzle our senses as we go deep in our bodies, cultivate play and dance in our erotic soul surrounded by rich history, jazz, burlesque, and a city that is known for it's food.  

Imagine diving into erotic exploration in a private, history-rich, graciously restored private home that is completely ours.  You won't always know what's next. What surprise we have in mind for you. But you will love the excitement, and anticipation of it all.

This retreat will ignite you to a place where the vital power of your sexual energy simply becomes a part of every day life. You will practice the art of the simmer and it will elevate your intimate relationship to become the place where you are nourished, uplifted and transformed.

The benefits of immersions allow you and your beloved to have the opportunity to dive deep, without distractions and form new beliefs and habits. When you step back into your daily routine, you will embody these new behaviors.

There will be erotic assignments, and your rooms will be filled with luxurious surprises like fabulous new experiments, sex toys and extraordinary aphrodisiac delights delivered to your suite to make your wild adventure even more unforgettable.

Close your eyes and picture starting your days in embodiment practices such as stroking arousal, dance and deep, long kisses sessions like you have never been encouraged to have before. 

There will be role-play and cultivation of skills sessions.

Add in the delight of daily sessions filled with exquisite sensual body work where you can enliven and transform your creative and erotic self.
