Please read this whole document carefully! Everyone has different social norms and party expectations, so we have attempted to be more thorough to avoid interruptions and misunderstandings on party night.
Consent is paramount. Respect for other people’s boundaries and wishes is key to creating a safe and comfortable space where people can open up and be their happiest, sexiest selves.
Consent for any play, physical or verbal, is required. A verbal ‘yes’ or clear verbal synonym for ‘yes’ indicates consent.
This also means asking permission for specific activities before attempting to initiate.
For example, ask ‘would you like a hug?’ from a distance before stepping closer, arms wide. It makes saying no much easier and more comfortable.
Other Examples of asking for consent:
- ‘May I move my hand down to your butt?’
- ‘Would you like to kiss?’
- ‘My love for you is like a truck and would you like to making fuck?’
- Ask if someone would like to interact with a Little before speaking to them in a baby voice.
Examples of giving consent:
- ‘Hell yes!’
- You can touch me anywhere above the waist’
- ‘You can rub your cock anywhere except on my vulva’
- ‘You can touch me anywhere, and slap my balls too’
Consent for one activity does not imply consent for another — ask before beginning a new activity.
This includes touching a new body part even if other parts are already being touched; also, whether ‘sex’ is understood to be happening and if penetration is a goal.
Try not to give a blanket, ‘you can do anything’, particularly with people you haven’t played with before. It not only protects you, it helps them respect your boundaries. Not everyone has the same idea of what a reasonable ‘anything’ is.
From the other side, even with blanket consent, please try and give a quick ask before doing something invasive or sudden unless that was pre-negotiated.
For example, many people do not want anything inserted into holes without warning, or to be slapped/hit/hurt out of nowhere, even if that’s part of ‘regular sex’ for you.
Consent is active — it may be withdrawn at any time from some or all activities.
Consent cannot be given if the person is intoxicated or otherwise incapacitated. Stop play and make sure the person is alright if this is the case.
While enthusiastic consent is preferred, (A ‘hell, yes!’ or a ‘yes’ with excited tone and body language), some people pushing their boundaries or with different social behavior may give a non enthusiastic ‘yes’ and still mean it.
If you are unsure, give them an out — ask if they would prefer to not do the activity.
- Give scenes/play space. If you want to watch, watch from a respectful distance and try not to occupy the players’ attention (unless they indicate that is welcome).
- Don’t interrupt scenes.
- Don’t touch toys and items that are not yours.
- Clean up after yourself.
- Follow signs on equipment for instructions, and provide a sign if providing equipment.
- Please be considerate of space and play furniture. If people want to play on it, see if you can talk or sit elsewhere.
- Be mindful of how much space you are occupying. Particularly when using long toys, such as whips, crops, canes, etc. If on a bed, do not extend toys beyond the bed edges.
- Ask a party monitor if you are unsure of something.
- Please try and eat mainly in the kitchen/bar area.
- No glass containers in the play space — store them in the kitchen/bar area.
Allergies, Smoking & Other Notes
- Please do not bring nuts.
- There will be many latex sex supplies at this party.
- No smoking or vaping in the play area.
- We want everyone to feel the most themselves, but out of consideration for more sensitive party goers, please consider wearing less or no scents (perfumes/colognes, etc.)
No photos without explicit consent of everyone in the photo, including ‘in the background’. Use the wall.
- This is not a dry party. You may bring and use alcohol and other substances responsibly.
- Please know your limits and take a break and/or ask for help if you become too intoxicated to play safely or give consent deliberately.
- Be aware of your compromised abilities when undertaking activities, particularly new to you or your partners.
- Be aware of your partners’ level of intoxication and the impact on their capacity to give consent. Decline further activity if your partner is too intoxicated and help them settle into a safe space to recover or go home.
- The party monitors will also step in and stop play and help people recover if they observe people are too intoxicated.
