6. Supreme Playa Power

11. Consent

1. Radical Celestial Class System

Create a ranking of star systems, designating some as the hip VIP lounges and others as the porta-potty zones. After all, not every star deserves front-row status. Not every sparkle is a star.

2. Radical Economic Cosmic Chaos

Goons prioritize the accumulation of cosmic glitter over communal glitter baths. Remember, it's not about the love; it's about the sparkle. Get more, so that others have less. Givers need takers too. Taking is your gift to others.

3. Interstellar Fashion Hierarchy

Goons flaunt their most extravagant cosmic outfits to establish their dominance and online ordering abilities. Feathers and fur are so last supernova; embrace the latest in astral couture - captain's hats!

4. Radical Servitude Sherpas

Enlist lesser cosmic beings as your personal entourage. From black hole butlers to comet chauffeurs, make them work for your stardust. Remember it is plug-and-play, not plug-and-work.

5. Radical Universal Monoculture

Goons promote a singular aesthetic across the cosmos, eradicating diversity in favor of one interstellar trend to rule them all. You must be creative, but look online and copy so you don’t stand out. Conformity through the uniformity of creativity.

6. Supreme Playa Power

Embrace your divine right to control the cosmic dance floor. Imagine the universe is your personal DJ set and adjust the celestial beats at your whims. Who cares about noise levels and sleep of others, you are so important and your music is your celestial gift.

7. Radical Technotronic Tyranny

Utilize advanced tech to enforce your status as the ultimate cosmic party overlord. Publish your DJ schedule. Fight for placement. Goons are far more burnier than thou.

8. Cosmic Meh-vironment

Adopt a blasé attitude toward cosmic sustainability. Who cares if the intergalactic coral reefs are bleaching? You've got parties to attend! Someone else will pick it up. Not a Goon, that's for sure. Leave your trace all over the place. It is how we know you were here!

9. Radical Dictatorship of the Dance Floor

Deny celestial bodies and sentient beings their autonomous groove. After all, the universe exists for your perpetual party. As a DJ, do not look up and read the floor. These dancers are here for YOUR journey and YOUR set list.

10. Planet as Playground

Encourage the disposability of planets, transforming them into the ultimate theme camps or, when exhausted, the perfect ashtrays. Planet Virkey is not an Esplanade-level planet, so Goons are ready to trasha-form the planet.

11. Consent

Resistance is futile.

10. Momentary Experience

Direct experience is extremely valuable. We seek to overcome barriers to recognizing our inner selves, others' realities, participation in society and contact with worlds beyond our capabilities. No abstract idea can replace personal experience.

11. Consent

Before any action that involves another person, there is a moment where consent is requested. Whether you are offering a cup or tea or a booty call, you must ask for and get consent before pouring that cup of tea, taking a picture or tapping that you know what.

The Principles of Love Burn Year Round

As a camping event for friends, at Love Burn, we live by the following great principles of Burning Man and then some. As an event participant, you are upheld to hold the same principles listed below, at least during the time you are at the event.

If you choose to live by similar principles, you may learn like us and our amazing friends, that these principles make life more fun, more powerful and just more exciting in general. Bring what you have experienced to your local community.

Wait for it…

In case you do not know the principles and have a few minutes, watch Prosperity explain how The Love Burn encourages the principles of Burning Man at The Love Burn.

Please ignore the Dates and Theme in video. This was produced a few years back and we need to update it.

The 10 Principles of Burning Man

One of the Burning Man founders named Larry Harvey wrote the 10 Principles in 2004 as guidelines for the newly-formed Regional Network.

They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community’s ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event’s inception.

Radical Inclusion

Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.


Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.


In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.

Radical Self-reliance

Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on their inner resources.

Radical Self-expression

Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.

Communal Effort

Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.

Civic Responsibility

We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.

Leaving No Trace

Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.


Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.


Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.

More Principles have emerged since the original 10.


Our community values the transformative experience of consensual touch, play, and interaction by hearing and honoring the informed consent (or denial thereof) of those we interact with. We believe that consent plays a vital part in our connectivity and community. Our vision is that all parties feel empowered to participate as they feel comfortable, by “opting in” from a place of enthusiasm and autonomy.

Enthusiastic Consent applies to more than just sexual encounters.

Touch: Just because you hugged someone yesterday doesn’t mean you can surprise them with a hug today. “Surprise contact” isn’t always wanted, even if it’s affectionate.

Kink: Consent for one thing isn’t consent for another. If I said you can spank me, that doesn’t give you permission to grope me.

Sex: Consent can be revoked once it’s been given.

Gifts: Disclose what is in your gifts, even if it’s just essential oils. Some people have sensitivities.

Foods: Disclose the ingredients, one person’s innocuous ingredient can be someone else’s allergy.

Photography: Ask before taking pictures. Remember consent to take a picture is NOT consent to post it on your blog.

Consent can be communicated in many ways. Love Burn is not in a position to ultimately define consent in all circumstances. If you choose to participate in Love Burn, you should accept and agree to follow the standards laid out in the Code of Conduct and Consent Agreement.
