The New Society for Wellness has been praised in the press for our innovative approach to sex and cannabis education, our commitment to enthusiastic consent, and our highly curated membership and adventures.
In order to push positive messages about sex and cannabis we work closely with journalists who support sex positivity. As an ideology and world view, sex positivity is simply the idea that all sex, as long as it is healthy and explicitly consensual, is a positive thing.

The decadent menu included wild mushroom crostini, goat cheese, and acorn squash as appetizers. Chinese sausage, apple stuffing, spiced-durban poison apple jam as sides. Mac n’ cheese bites, charred corn, miso-cannabutter, lobster, chai tea brined turkey, cranberry sauce, and cinnamon sweet potato tartlets for the main meal. And lastly, for dessert, Toro baked pumpkin-spiced latte cheesecake and girl scout cookie pecan crumble.
"Mindful masturbation is designed to increase your understanding of your body, discover new feelings, and help you explore new ways of pleasuring yourself," says Saynt. "The 'goal' is to be able to say, 'I really know my body. I know what toys and touches I like. I’ve spent this time with it. I’ve pleased myself.'"
“And if they're looking for untethered access (in the most literal of terms) to the most successful of their peers, they're not just joining Raya or The Wing. Indeed, NSFW (New Society for Wellness), takes things far beyond mere elbow-rubbing.”
"It's more focused on the mental over the physical, which is why it's more of an ongoing spiritual practice than a one-night stand or quickie. It's mostly about connection, but many tantra practices can also be applied to mindful masturbation, helping you self heal through its practice," Saynt tells us.
“The flavor profile of strains can vary from each type of cannabis based on the terpenes in the plant. For Dankquet, we choose oils and flowers that would best complement our meal, aiming for a more citrusy Limonene in our fruit-based relish and choose a musky Mycrene for our meatier portions.”
“More so now than ever, enthusiastic consent is something that people are talking about. ‘How do we take people from no means no to yes means yes?’ A lot of that has come from the maturity of the play scene,” Saynt tells Bustle.
Bisexuality, pansexuality, sexually fluid, queer and simply “not doing labels” – all are different ways people identify to indicate that they are not exclusively attracted to either men or women.
"While past sex experiences may have been less than fulfilling, approaching new partners with a mindset dedicated to gaining the most from each other sexually and a vocabulary to navigate those situations will help you weed through those unwilling to put in the effort and find the gems that really know how to stimulate you."
“When I think of some of the earliest images that turned me on, I think of Tom of Finland,” Saynt tells Hornet. “His images captured a real moment in the emergence of gay/bi culture, of fashion as a part of an identity. He captured a strong, sensual side of male sexuality and in the process inspired a global movement of gay/bi men embracing leather.”
Saynt continues, “If that connection involves locking genitals, that's cool too, but it's never expected or required.”
“In the basement, next to a king-size bed with a mirrored headboard, mistresses are dominating their submissive male partners, teasingly stroking their penises, squeezing their testicles and pinching their nipples. A woman with red hair and tasteful tattoos is being tied up. She’s doubled over across a bench that looks like something you’d do curls on at a gym. Her tall, bespectacled boyfriend begins striking her back and rear end with a cat-o-nine-tails dungeon whip. With witnesses moving through the space she screams pleasurably, then moans while her companion vigorously fingers her.”
“NSFW's goal is to spread positive messages around sex and cannabis,” says Saynt." “We provide education and judgment-free spaces for a group of people we consider influential in New York City to explore sexually.”
“Enthusiastic consent is focused around changing our thinking from ‘no means no’ to ‘yes means yes.’ You want people to feel comfortable expressing what they want to experience. That comes from making sure all your guests are on the same page about what to expect and how to behave.”
Chief Conspirator Daniel Saynt offers some advice on sex’s final frontier, prostate stimulation.
"It's designed to be a place where there is no judgment and you have the freedom to express yourself sexually," Saynt said. "More and more millennials are thinking this way, and the idea of exchanging love more freely is becoming a bigger conversation."
