Since the dawn of time, spanking has brought pleasure and pain to all kinds of booties. What’s your favorite kind of spanking? Firm yet gentle? Over the knee? Have you ever tried rhythmic spanking or been spanked into a trance-like state? This workshop will help you explore all of that — and more!

In this class, Intimacy Coach & Erotic Blueprint™ Educator Jessie Fresh will go into the biology behind why spankings can feel so delicious, how to use your hands and tools for the yummiest delivery, warm up (a key ingredient), placement of spanks so they become orgasmic, how to “read” your partner, negotiation and consent, energetics, ergonomics, and aftercare.

We’ll also get into how you can customize the experience for the bottom’s Erotic Blueprint, whether they’re energetic, sensual, sexual, kinky, or a shapeshifter. This class will include a hot live demo. Singles, couples, and friend groups welcome.

Note: These techniques will only be practiced on ourselves, by ourselves in the class, partnered spanking can be practiced once the class is complete and the club is open to the public.

Investment is $20, includes admission to the workshop, as well as admission to Sanctuary Club for the evening. Space for the workshop is limited, reserve your ticket before it sells out.

**Doors will lock by 7:15pm, no one will be admitted entry past that time.

Game Bang! Blanket Fort Night
Mar 27 @ 8:00 pm – Mar 28 @ 12:00 am

BRING YOUR OWN BLANKETS! Best fort gets bragging rights and the grand prize: a shitty bottle of booze. We’re not saying its that bottle of bacon vodka that keeps getting re-gifted to all your friend’s house parties… but it might be that very same bottle.

Onesies, kigurumis and pajamas are encouraged.

Welcome to Game Bang!
…where we play a variety of sexy games while making connections with a variety of sexy people!
Most games at Game Bang! Feature stripping, cuddling, kissing, stroking, and all manner of fun “truth or dare” type aspects. Due to the intimate and vulnerable nature of interacting physically with humans one might not know very well, there are a few extra guidelines we ask you to follow while having fun.

General Guidelines and Etiquette:

1. We want everyone to feel empowered and safe in Sanctuary. To facilitate a comfortable atmosphere, please let us know if you feel uncomfortable. We have a lot of experience and success moving forward through communication and teaching the consent process. Please keep in mind that even the most well-intentioned person can make a mistake around consent.

2. Social dares are not mandatory, and pressuring others to participate is very discouraged.

3. In fact, NO DARE is mandatory. Rules exist to facilitate games and provide opportunities for fun and connection, but are not expected to be followed verbatim. Ask your hosts for suggestions if you don’t feel like doing something as written.

4. Always put power into the hands of the most vulnerable person in any interaction! (Example: “Where would you like to be touched?” instead of “Where can I touch?”)

5. Be mindful of the physical, mental and emotional state of others. Perhaps someone has had a family emergency recently, had a bad day, or are simply feeling extra vulnerable today. Sometimes these things happen during the evening. Just because someone did something once, does not give implied consent in the future.

6. In line with mindfulness, remember that many people on game nights know each other or have met before. If you see an intimate interaction between others where consent is not clearly communicated, it does not give anyone else permission to do the same. Always assume that others have communicated consent. If you have concerns, please bring them to your hosts and they will look into it.

7. Please do not suggest others try things you want them to do. If someone seems confused or needs help on a choice, help them through empowerment. Find out what it is they want and encourage them to do it.
Game Bang is a weekly game night at Sanctuary. Come nerd out with your fellow kinksters. The games will change week to week but will probably include Janky Jenga and Cards Against Humanity. Feel free to bring your own games too!

Only $5. 21+, LGBTQ+, ADA
Sanctuary is located at 33 NW 9th Ave above Splash Bar, enter on 9th.

We aim to create an inclusive space for LGBTQ, pansexual, queer, or straight subs and their fem tops.

DRESS CODE:
 
This is a party to encourage and fuel fem tops and those who are interested in being submissive to them. We aim to be inclusive while encouraging attendees to dress the part, this is to create a safe space for this community to explore. We are looking to avoid gawkers or entitled dude tourists.
