GUIDE FOR SINGLE GENTLEMAN AT AURORA FESTIVAL
“The Lifestyle” as it is often referred, has been a growing interest since the war years, and in
recent years has expanded to become a “lifestyle choice” for many hundreds of
thousands across the globe. This surge in numbers is meaning the quantity and quality
of “lifestyle venues & events” is increasing.
Formerly the lifestyle was thought of as mostly for the over 40’s, but in the last couple of
years a trend is emerging to include many more people of younger ages. This guide is
designed to simply give you a better chance of making the festival a brilliant time for you,
as well as all other guests.
Until recently years the lifestyle was very much for couples only. Single guys are now
often welcome but there are a number of basic rules/etiquette that you must follow.
CAN SINGLE MEN BOOK TICKETS?
We welcome single guys; up to 10% of the total number at the festival. You must
however have a well verified profile on one of the main lifestyle websites. BEFORE
booking please email us and advise us of your profile name.
WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?
Often dictated by the weather basic common sense applies, this is YOUR chance to
impress, so if you look like a scruff then you may find yourself sat around the fire alone.
Always dress to impress.
WHAT "ACTION" WILL I GET?
Make no assumptions!! This is NOT a ‘meat market’, so if you spend time being fun,
social and make the effort to mingle you will have a lovely event. You must make the
effort yourself. If you sit and wait then little will happen.
DO YOU HAVE ANY "HINTS" FOR A NEW GUY TO THE LIFESTYLE SCENE?
Relax – this is really just a social experience, think of it as going to a nice pub, party or
any other festival. Don’t get drunk as alcohol may ruin your party as well as others! Be
clean, smell nice, look smart… couples notice these things. If you smoke then mints are
a wise addition to carry. The festival has a safe sex policy and protection
but we recommend you bring your own.
IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE SINGLE GUYS?
Yes, we limit single gents to 10% of the total number of guests. Although it’s good to
then meet up with others at the bar etc, we strongly discourage “pack hunting” (prowling
around in groups) and also “gawking” (standing around play zones)
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
Just be you – “no means no”, but just be social and you will soon get a feel for how you
are getting on with people, and either just ask politely or they may ask you, but the
ladies are very much the ones who decide, so respect this throughout the evening, try
and learn about them and their interests and you may be surprised!
I AM STILL UNSURE ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS?
Your events team are there to help you, do not be afraid to ask, this is the quickest way
to find things out and trust us, we have been asked just about everything!!! Please do
not send texts and emails before you attend as the focus is on the actual event and
looking after their guests on the night, experience also shows that the more emails sent
by guys BEFORE a festival, generally means they won’t book !!!
CAN I PAY ON THE GATE?
NO….. Online payments are a FESTIVAL RULE – This is to Protect our customers identity and security that allows peace of mind for all our guests.
We hope these few hints will help, remember, if in doubt just ask. We have a number of
guys who come along every year because they “stick to plan” and realise that the more
others feel socially comfortable, the more likely the chemistry will take over.
We welcome you to the LIFESTYLE, and to Aurora, and hope you have many
great events with us.
