A Kink and Lifestyle Fetish Night & Play Party

21 & older only

Just $15 per person if thru the door before 10pm or $20 per person later.

A Kink and Lifestyle Fetish Night / Play Party

The party welcomes a mix of both kink and lifestyle (swinger) so can get pretty intimate. All genders and orientations are welcome so long as you are 21 & over with legal ID (there is a bar). Please be respectful & tolerant of different views … if there is any issue, notify a Party Host or Dungeon Monitor.

There are multiple suspension hardpoints, spanking benches, crosses, and other areas available for play or dance to the delicious music – the entire club is open for your enjoyment. While the club allows sex on premises, there is no guarantee of sex! Treat others with kindness & respect and always get enthusiastic consent.

The party is great for the experienced, the curious, exhibitionists, and voyeurs. If interested in learning more about something during the party, ask a Party Host or Dungeon Monitor.

Plan for a crowd and leave toys which require a lot of space (long whips, etc) at home. Because of the diversity of those attending, this party is not appropriate for extreme/edgy kink play. While the party staff works hard to make this a safe space, please play responsibly and think hard before engaging in play that might be overly traumatic if there is an inadvertent interruption. While the club has some limited space for toy bag storage the best plan is to bring just what you expect to use. Please keep scenes to a reasonable duration so that others have a chance to play as well and move aftercare to a couch whenever possible (multiple scenes during the night are fine, so long as you break between each so that others have the opportunity to use the space).

The Dangerous Women’s Collective (DWC) is for female identified people who are exploring Ethical Non-Monogamy.

We gather once a month to connect, drink drinks, and be ourselves even more brazenly than usual.

DWC events provide a supportive environment for more experienced women to share knowledge, resources, and anecdotes with those who are new to non-monogamy. 

Group icebreaker will kick-off between 7:00 – 7:30 PM

Please extend this invitation to like-minded, female-identified friends! 

LGBTQ+, People of Color, and female-identified people of all backgrounds are welcomed and embraced. Sanctuary is an ADA compliant venue.

Game Bang!
May 8 @ 8:00 pm – May 9 @ 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.
