The sexy summer camp you always fantasized about is now your reality...
Northwest Summit, Portland, Sept. 14-16
Personal experiences from past Cock Summits:
“I fell in love with my penis again! All was well-organized, we had a positive/diverse/friendly group and there was something for everyone. Clearly there was a lot of thought and effort that made the weekend so successful. I personally got so much out of the events, the camaraderie, the positive messaging and oh yes, the sex was great too. I asked a lot of people about whether they would consider returning next year and ALL were enthusiastically saying YES!” — DESERTDAVID, Palm Springs CA
“This was not just a group of men gathering, not just nudity, not just sexual interaction and sharing, not just hiking, bonfire, drums etc… I think several of us have the ability to say this weekend has made a true mark on our lives. It is hard to describe the bond I found with other men this weekend. So many layers of insecurity were stripped away by the men that challenged my way of thinking, helped me push my own boundaries, physically gave me pleasure… and even those that made my heart of hearts pound harder in their presence. I am proud to have shared this experience with the men of Cock Summit 2017.” — STR8SHOOTER, San Diego CA
“I bonded with some amazing men, milked quite a few cocks (some multiple times), challenged my own insecurities and was able to help other men do the same through brotherhood bonding & touch. I’ve made some real friendships and hope I helped change the way some feel and explore self pleasure.” — MilkingLA, Atlanta GA
Cock Summit II was life-changing, a totally incredible experience. The men who attended were so supportive and free, just the greatest group of guys, so many connections made… so many beautiful cocks to dream about and so many memories to jack off to! The leadership team was perfect, I greatly enjoyed the morning yoga and the Osho movement meditation! The location was ideal, I love being outdoors, esp naked. This retreat was everything I wanted it to be and more. Thank you everyone who was there, I loved every drop of fun! — ClericOfPhallus, San Diego, CA
“I continue to marvel at how this event has positively impacted my life. Such deep bonds have been affirmed through continued contact this week….something I didn’t anticipate. I’m still discovering the ways I’ve been transformed. Bravo from a heart filled with gratitude.” — pudpup, Wisconsin
Bateworld.com has joined forces with Sexologist Dr. Jallen Rix to create Cock specifically for Bateworld members and all who enjoy making their cocks feel great! The first one in April 2017 went so well, and we knew so many of you who wanted to go, we decided to keep the momentum going, and at the same time, we’ll fine-tune the great weekend we already have! We want to further expand that special “safe space” that has been the staple of BateWorld and bring it face-to-face and out in the open of nature’s acceptance. We will celebrate our dicks’ roaming freely and ruling our weekend! In the tradition of our pagan and faerie ancestors who recognized the importance of brazenly celebrating the phallus, we will throw our shame and conformity aside and revel in our masculine power under the sun. We will engage our compassionate camaraderie and bond with nurturing touch. In brotherhood, we will connect with our bodies and edify our diversity in every shape, size, length, age, color, hardness, softness, and ability. Around the fire we will howl at the moon, and pound the drum, and raise our phallus in honor of each and everyone’s worthiness of pleasure. All self-identified males are welcome, gay, bi, straight, trans, and anyone else we have missed, cum stroke your dick with us! You are welcome!
So… are we just gonna jack off non-stop?
Well, mostly, and why not? That’s what BateWorld is all about! However, we are neither gonna sit around all weekend, nor (to the other extreme) are we looking to run you ragged with every minute programed in workshops. We are hoping to strike a balance between the two – plenty of time to hang out by the pool, explore the terrain, take a nap – but enough activities that we can bond, connect, and take our stroking to deeper levels of enlightenment.
As the weather permits, we will inhabit the land all the while our cocks in hand. We will engage each other in bonding and playful experiences like (as one example) telling stories, our stories of sexy fantasies, and peak experiences, stories of the ancient love for the holy phallus and how it has made itself alive in our present reality.
Can we let the pure love of cock win the day? Can the youthful sprite and the muscled warrior and the wise old wizard in their nakedness and costumery unite for cock’s sake and heal us of our inhibitions and fear, reinforce our confidence, nurture our intimacy and bond us as bator brothers? We are all unique personas while at different places in the journey, so everyone will be accepted for participating at the level to which they feel most comfortable. Let this event allow hand, heart, body and cock to work the power of rhythm and movement and “skin-flute music” so that we can rock the night away! Join us, Cock Pioneer as we explore together what might profoundly affect you for the rest of your life! All the sexiness, acceptance and fun you’ve experienced in front of your computer on BateWorld, you get to have in person, surrounded by men all stroking for pleasure, taking that intensity and intimacy to an even more personal level than can be achieved alone. Connect with your BateWorld brothers like never before!
If you take the plunge and join us for the Summit, you will be accepted as you are, whether you get hard or stay soft, or you orgasm, ejaculate, withhold your orgasms, cum in buckets, or just stand around and watch – our desire is to connect with other like-hearted men therefore the “performance” of your cock is not going to hold us back from connecting with you. The vast majority of the sexual activity will be touch and masturbation. In this short weekend, we ask that anal penetration be avoided simply because of the cleanliness/STIs factor, though an occasional blowjob would not be out of the question. We will take clear steps to make the environment a consensual experience, but what occurs in privacy we have no control over. Therefore, that means you will ultimately be responsible for saying “yes” or “no” to the activities you participate in. However, the focus of the weekend, like online with BateWorld, is about self-pleasuring. Poppers may be used, but only outside and away from the buildings. We have a great time and learn a lot from every Cock Summit. Although there will be cock-focused activities, we will be discovering together what can be done in person. Just like online, every encounter is a unique experience. Let’s see what we can create and enjoy together, shall we?
This will be a mainly drug and alcohol free weekend
What that means (taking a cue from Radical Faerie retreats) is that we want to respect our brothers who would be triggered by the use of alcohol and other addictive drugs, so we ask that alcohol, and the use of cannabis be kept primarily hidden from site and away from buildings. There will be an outdoor designated cigarette smoking area. Poppers will also be kept outside and away from buildings. Anything “harder” than the aforementioned stimulants, such as meth, speed, cocaine, acid, mushrooms, etc… is NOT part of this weekend. We are explaining this in detail as a way to strike an adult middle ground between hyper-abstinence, and trusting that everyone will be responsible adults who take care of themselves. As a general rule, if there is any question in your mind that you can’t manage your own stimulants, then don’t bring them or don’t come. We want to connect with YOU not your drugs. We know that stimulants can assist with that connection, but we also know how it can hinder as well. During the course of the weekend, if anyone appears to be so “affected” by a stimulant (regardless of what it is) that it affects their ability to be present, respectful, or aware of their affect on others, they will be escorted off the property without refund. This has never happened and we hope you’ll help us keep it that way. We have every compassionate intention to create a safe space for ALL our brothers. Don’t waste your time. Don’t waste your money. Don’t waste the weekend creating bad energy for yourself or others. We say this explicitly and strongly now so that we can have a great time then. Make sense? Thank you for taking care of yourself and your bator brothers!
Specifics for the Northwest Cock Summit outside Portland, September 14-16
The Space: Elysium Lodge & Retreat Center
Elysium Lodge is the first ever dedicated sex-positive retreat center in the country. It’s sits in a private pine forest just 30min. from downtown Portland OR, and 30min. from the airport. The property sits along a river that enable private access for skinny dipping. The 40 acre farm and forest is butted up against a nature preserve providing ample room to romp in nature.
Excellent meals from Friday’s dinner to Sunday’s lunch are provided by the staff which is included in your registration fee.
We are hoping for the last sunny weekend before the cool of Fall really sets in. Past temperatures at this time of year sit between 60’s and 80’s in the day, and gets down to the 40’s at night. Bring some layers. There’s plenty of space inside by the fire to stay cozy and sexy.
Because of the natural environment, we ask that all participants be in good health and be able to maneuver stairs to get around.
Arrival/Departure and Car pooling:
Please arrive between 4pm-6pm on Friday, September 14th. If you are flying into Portland and need to be picked up, please make your airport arrival between 2pm – 4pm on September 14th so that we can make one trip to pick everyone up. The Summit will end after lunch on Sunday September 16th. If you are flying out of Portland, please make your departure flight time after 4pm so that there is no rush to the airport to make your flight.
We need your help and some of you need a discount. We need 5 guys to help throughout the weekend with food prep and we will take $60 off your weekend fee. If you would like to be one of those 5, check the correct box on your registration form, THEN (and this is the important part) when you are paying your registration fee, on the CHECKOUT page (just above where you put your credit card number) look for the blue “Use Gift Card or Promo Code” – click on it and put in the word “volunteer” for your $60 discount.
The lodge provides four different tiers of accommodations. First, there are 6 private rooms that sleep up to 3 persons each (a king/queen/full size bed, and a single bed), which have either private/semi-private or communal bathrooms(a total of 18 persons). Second, there are several different common rooms that have either bunk beds, single beds or futon-like floor mattresses that sleep up to 24 people. Third, for a more nature-connected experience, there is a set of communal outdoor tents on platforms that can sleep up to 10 people on cots, you bring your own bedding/sleeping bag. Finally, if you’d like to just rough it, you can pitch your own tent on the land, or bring your RVs/campers to park with plenty of space to spare. The private rooms will go fast, so get your reservation fee in quickly. All beds have sheets, pillows and blankets, but it’s probably wise to bring an extra blank-ee just in case.

2. Common/Dorm room with mattress/futon sleeping: $330
