It’s about 10 hours till my red eye to Reno and I’m at Shag, a Williamsburg sex shop, discussing the best condoms for desert-like conditions with the shopkeep. I’d really like some with extra lube. I proclaim to the shop’s owner while scanning through a collection of app-enabled vibrators. MOOP is one of many Burning Man words that denizens of this pop-up city in Nevada need to know to fit in on the sun-scorched avenues of the playa. MOOP is the bane of the Burner existence, as keeping environmental impact low is a major badge of pride in the ever-expanding Black Rock City.
Last year, more than 80,000 people made their way to this New Age mecca, a pilgrimage devised by hippie diehards that’s lately become an end-of-summer retreat for startup millionaires, tech billionaires, and a growing list of celebrities and the Insta-famous. Paris Hilton, James Franco, Katy Perry and Karlie Kloss are just some of the stars taking selfies on the playa. Even Oscar winners are prone to the Burn’s allure: Susan Sarandon made one with the dust in 2015 to spread the ashes of friend and LSD evangelist Timothy Leary. And now, Burner culture is trickling into the mainstream.
