It's not your living space that was the problem. But the idea that you should avoid as much responsibility for MAKING burning man happen as possible.
Every year there is a larger percentage of virgins than the previous year
The city doesn't just magically happen and appear for spectators to come and enjoy it. It comes from the hard work, blood, sweat, and tears of the people who go to burning man to share something.
I think its a good idea for virgins to make some things easier on themselves since your first year is a huge culture shock. But if you're not participating you're missing the whole point and really just ending up being parasitic.
