Get prepared for your piggy weekend by packing some of the following stuff:
Prepare for the Weather
Palm Springs in July is HOT, and that’s the entire point! The hot days set the stage for fantastic warm nights, which is when our official play parties take place. Though the party grounds are available to you all day, most guys take a siesta or make other plans in the afternoon.
When you’re out during the day, be prepared temperatures over 100 degrees. You can check the weather here. Be sure to bring and wear sunscreen—and reapply it often.
You will find some cool weather if you plan to take the Aerial Tramway to the top of Mount San Jacinto. Bring a sweatshirt if you plan to ride the tram.
In addition to sunscreen, bring a hat, pool shoes or flip flops, sunglasses and a towel.
Footwear is very important! Without protection, you can actually burn your feet on the concrete pool deck and walkways. Plus in the Pig Park, you’ll encounter grass, sand and natural vegetation. Footwear will protect your feet from any unseen gravel or twigs.
We welcome every kind of fetish gear! If you like to gear up when you play, by all means pack it! You’ll find guys in everything imaginable—and plenty in nothing at all.
If you like being a service pig, we also recommend knee pads. They’ll keep you from getting muddy (unless that’s what you like!) and make it easier to concentrate on more important stuff—like all those dicks in your face!
You should also pack your favorite sex stuff (gloves, lube, condoms, toys, etc.). We provide basic gloves, condoms and lube, but if there are certain specialty products that you prefer, you should bring them.
If you get into assplay, you should bring what you need to clean out and do it in your hotel room before you arrive at the party. There are not cleanout facilities on the Party Grounds.
For your convenience, the Palm Springs Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will staff a clothes check. The suggested donation is $5 a day, which they’ll distribute to local charities which provide support to people with HIV, LGBT support and advocacy, and more. Your best bet is to arrive in minimal (but street-legal) clothing so you that won’t have much to manage.
What To Leave Behind: Cameras, Drugs, Valuables
Because of the underground nature of our event and to protect the privacy of the pigs that join us, taking pictures on the premises is prohibited. If we find you on the grounds with a camera or a phone, we will erase it and hold onto it until you leave.
Drugs can pass from you to your partner in your piss, so they are absolutely not allowed! Guys who are high or seen consuming drugs will be sent home.
Even though we’ve never had a theft at Wet n Hot, it’s still probably a good idea to bring as little stuff as necessary and leave most of your money and all of your valuables behind. You’ll only need money for the clothes check and/or cab fare, plus an ID, so leave the rest of your stuff at your hotel.
