Dude. What did you expect?

Also... do you go sticking your dick in weird holes out in the world? What makes it OK to do at Burning Man?

trick question

That's the thing I like about Burning Man. It's a safe place to do just about anything. Try stuff out. Wear a dress. Stay up all night. Embrace a stranger. Whatever.

In the end, it is a city of 70k people, and - just like any other city of 70k people - you can find whatever experience you are looking for, with the added benefit of it being a safe place to experiment.

This is an important message. It feels like a lot of younger don't necessary feel that way. A city of 70k can feel small or insignificant compared to the New Yorks or San Frans of the world, especially in your early-mid twenties. When the media and peers push the overwhelming nature of having everything to do with no work to find it, it can make a city of 70k feel like a ghost town. But there's always something there, it just means you have to work for it. And that might be the most rewarding part, right?
