50 Shades of STFU!
Mar 28 @ 8:00 pm – Mar 29 @ 1:30 am

50 Shades of STFU, Every 4th Thursday

8pm – 1:30am   $10   21+

Spank the patriarchy at the hottest femdom party in Portland. Organized by pro-domme and BDSM coach Mistress Viola, 50 Shades of STFU is a kinky play party, social event, and performance venue for fem tops and the individuals who serve and worship them. We aim to create an inclusive space for LGBTQ, pansexual, queer, or straight subs and their fem tops.

 
If you’re a cis male dom this is really not the event for you. If you wanna switch it up and explore your subby side you are welcome to come. Check your entitlement at the door & see dress code.
 
There are no tastings at this event but it is a great place to meet fem tops who want to play and solo subs looking to be of service.
 
Playspaces, St. Andrews cross, semi-private areas, spanking benches, and hard points available.
 
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.
 
Fems can dress to impress as they wish (fetish wear encouraged).
Female subs encouraged to present as such as well.
 
Male attendees are required to dress to express their interest in fem dominance, even in some small way: fetish wear, collars, cuffs, high heels, fetish shoes, hoods, crossdressed, glamour, make-up, uniforms*, leather, PVC, lingerie, formal wear, leashes, puppy or animal costumes, sweet jammies, cute underpants, bow ties, bunny ears, etc.
 
Cisgendered male attendees will not be allowed in the club in plain street clothes.
For first-timers, black clothing and nice underwear are acceptable. If you have nothing to wear, we will give you a nametag to identify as: submissive, slave, sub-curious, etc.

Lead, Follow, Switch: A Connective Partner Dance Class
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

We’re bringing partner dance to Sanctuary! Unlock your pleasure through connected movement! Learn the basics of partner dance and creative expression. Join us in a welcoming, inclusive, and judgement free environment where we will cover the fundamentals of:
-connection
-finding the groove
-communication and consent
-relationship between lead and follow

Not only will you learn the foundations of partner dance, but these skills can also be extended to social dynamics and sexual play! Partner Dance:
– is a way to create and build connection, especially when we don’t know how or are afraid to approach someone
– is a great activity for kinky people who want to learn how to lead and follow clearly (masculine/feminine, dom/sub dynamics, not gender specific)
– unlocks pleasure through movement (amazing foreplay!), is a turn on, and is super sexy
– is a great date night (these skills translate into the bedroom!)
– teaches confidence, communication, consent, and connection
– gets you in your body, connected sensually and sexually to yourselves and your partners

$15 at the door (tickets get you entry into the following event!)
No experience necessary. No partner necessary, couples and singles welcome. Lead/Follow not gender specific!

This dance class is trying to be a safer space for POC and LGBTQIA members of the community. Please let us know if you experience discrimination or bigotry of any kind, or if there is anything we can do to create a more welcoming environment
