Sex Magick:
Exploring the Boundaries of Intimacy

Privacy Policy

Our policies around collecting data and what we do with it are listed below.  We are being compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and various US state and federal laws.  And we support the intentions of these rules and regulations!



Who is collecting the data?
The Circle of Loving Companions, a California non-profit, is responsible for collecting the data.  You can reach them by emailing  The specific membership of the Circle of Loving Companions is fluid and also not something that is shared and is constituted by those who have successfully completed the Sex Magick Workshop, though that in itself is not what constitutes a "Loving Companion."

What data is being collected?
The data collected includes name, address, phone number, email, specific workshop preferences, special requests and dietary needs.  We also track who is doing a gatekeeping call, when the call is completed and how much is paid for the workshop by the participant.  Information on rideshare and arrival times may also be collected separately.

How will the information be used?
This data is collected so we know how to contact you.   We collect physical mailing address information so we can send you a hard-copy photograph from the workshop.  Since we may contact you multiple times before the workshop to arrange and conduct a gatekeeping conversation, it is helpful to have your email and phone number(s).  We also need to know how much you will be paying so we can budget and plan accordingly.  Contacting you personally after you register and before the workshop starts is a fundamental part of helping to create the container of the workshop.  It's also important to know that everyone registered is real and has a bona fide interest in participating in the workshop.  We also use this data to contact you, with your permission, about future workshops and specific events like a gathering for Loving Companions.

Will the data be shared with any third parties?
We share the data between the facilitators in the workshop and with an administrative volunteer who is also a member of the Circle of Loving Companions.  We never share the data with third parties, full stop. 

How long will the data be stored for?
We store the data indefinitely.  If you move or change any of the information, we won't know about it.  We keep it so we have a historical record of who has done this work.

What rights does the data subject have?
You have the right to have your data removed from our database - really just a spreadsheet.  You also have the right to know how we have used your data and who it was shared with.  You have the right to request and obtain copies of the data we have collected pertaining to you.  You can email us at to request copies of the data we have.

How can the data subject raise a complaint?

Of course we all have good intentions and would hope there isn't a reason to complain.  That said, legally we need to provide you with this information.

Article 77 of the GDPR states:

  1. Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, every data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes this Regulation.

  2. The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78.

All that is fine, and we suggest you first contact us at  We'll do our best to resolve the issue before you need to go through a lot of trouble finding a non-burdensome way to resolve the issue in the U.S.  Nobody is profiting financially from this.
