Game Bang!
May 15 @ 8:00 pm – May 16 @ 12:00 am

You wanted all the games. You played all the games.

$5 per person

Your amazing hosts will lead you through a variety of games. The games will change week to week but will probably include Janky Jenga and Cards Against Humanity!

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.

Chatterbox Karaoke!
May 16 @ 9:00 pm – May 17 @ 1:00 am

KARAOKE!

– The third Thursday of every month.

Sing from your groin!

…Or your mouth

Featuring KJ Bryan who will help you sing your way into the stars and into their pants.

Don’t sing? Karaoke is an easy way to meet people in a fun environment.

$5 at the door. 21+

FYI: Chatterbox was a 1977 X-rated comedy/fantasy film in which a woman discovers she has a talking vagina. Fortunately her vagina can also sing and she goes on a cross-country tour singing show tunes and disco. The film, named as one of the worst of all-time by the Golden Turkey awards, was a twist on the 1972 classic Deep Throat. You can imagine the scenario in that one.

Witness Chatterbox:

Devil’s Doorbell: Spring Fever
May 21 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Womxn* JOIN US for The Devils Doorbell’s spring mix and mingle dance and play party, with DJ $APPHYR!

$10 at the Door, 21+ ADA accessible

This is a Womxn’s only event. Please read the below *statement to better understand its scope.

This month, we come together without agenda to show each other what we’ve learned over the last year and dance, roll, and romp until we drop! Your full play bags are welcome, and we will be encouraging the hands-on practice of the year’s topics to date. Straps-ons and dildos, sensual massage, erotic breast play, cunnilingus, dirty talk, lap dancing, kink and more. If this will be your first time, welcome! There will be ice breaker games and I’m sure many womxn* will love to show you the ropes!

Come ready to dance! DJ $APPHYR, a sexy member of our LGBTQIA+ community is going to be on decks and you won’t want to miss her! Hailing from Seattle, WA and representing White Dynamite, a house/breaks DJ collective, she’s gained a serious love for deep house music in the late 90’s at rave parties and at the Underground nightclub in Seattle’s U-district, where DJ Dominator (aka Donald Glaude) had a weekly residency.

Now, she shares her love of house music, breakbeats, and hip-hop through her DJ mixes and by performing as a DJ, herself. In addition to playing in Seattle $APPHYR has played sets in Los Angeles, Orange County, and at Burning Man in Black Rock City, NV.

Find her sound at: https://m.soundcloud.com/heatherpolandfairchild

* This event is for all self identified womxn. This group is following the path of other inclusive womxn’s groups in the Portland community and believes the following statement from the Bad Girls leather group to be a fitting and “broad definition for self-identified women: (…) inclusive of cisgender, transgender, and intersex women, along with gender expansive individuals who find home within women’s spaces. This can include gender non-conforming, agender, two-spirit, butch, femme, and many other identities.
An expanded definition of the term “gender expansive” can be found in the gender statement of the WFTDA.”

https://wftda.org/wftda-gender-statement

There is an introduction period that establishes your respected pronouns. We go over topics exploring female sexuality and connection. Consent culture is established and required at every event at all times. Relationship/identity/belief shaming is not tolerated. If you are in transition, you are welcome. We will work hard to create a safe space for everyone’s skill and comfort levels. Your engagement is strictly at your own pace and preference. PM Gracie Dillree if you have any questions, concerns, or comments; we want to hear from you.

See you there!

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