Reincarnation Location

Participants are reborn into the world of the Playa!

First confess your sins, then spin the Wheeeeel of Penance. Whatever it lands on, you’ll have to do – but you do get to choose a G, R or NC-17 rated version. Once your task is complete, you will be cleansed of all your sins and can be reborn! You’ll then rid yourself of all your worldly possessions (take your clothes off) and crawl out of our structure through a 6′ vagina – where someone in hospital scrubs spanks you and gives you a rebirth certificate (with your thumb print and Playa name, then laminated)!
