50 Shades of STFU
Presented by Mistress Viola & head DM/cohost @MaeveMcBride, 50 Shades of STFU is a kinky play party and social event for femdoms and femme tops and the individuals who serve and worship them. We have been home at Sanctuary Club downtown since 2017.
This month our party falls directly on the fall equinox. We are honoring the shift in seasons with a shift and focus on the sensual and on foot worship… Come dressed in your favorite fall colors, autumnal accents, fanciest footwear, or pumpkin pedicures. We will have a special area for vetted subs to pamper and adore the feet of dommes in attendance, special performances, tastings from vetted dommes. As usual, @RedeemerPDX will be there with handmade impact toys for sale & bootblack @Lady_Viper will be there to care for your vinyl and leathers. So bring some tip and toy $$!
BIPOC folks please reach out to [email protected] for a spot on the guestlist for free entry. If you are experiencing financial hardship or if cost is a barrier please reach out for a spot as well. Otherwise, tix can be purchased at door!
What happens at this infamous event? The show usually starts around 9pm and we have now added tastings from 8pm-midnight (what are tastings? It’s a first come first serve sign-up sheet for short scenes with experienced dommes). Dommes TBD.
We aim to create an inclusive space for LGBTQ, pansexual, queer, or straight submissives and their fem tops. If you’re a cis male dom this is really not the event for you. However, if you’re switchy and/or abide by the dress code you are welcome to join us!
Are you looking for a job? IE: service sub, DM, tastings, or other support, fill out this form here and we will reach back out for this event or the next! https://forms.gle/WR9g1augjfGvmQek9
Playspaces, St. Andrews cross, semi-private areas, spanking benches, and hard points are available.
Covid Safety for STFU:
While Sanctuary does not require proof of vaccination for most events, we have chosen to require proof of vaccination for this event. You may also show a negative COVID test at the door dated 24hrs prior to the event. If you have questions, please contact us at [email protected]. Please, please, stay home if you are feeling under the weather in any way, scratchy throat, sniffles, or fever. We encourage you to test before and after all large events.
With the known risks of monkeypox transmission with skin to skin contact, we are asking that folks be diligent about sanitizing play stations after using them. DMs will be assisting with sanitizing at the party.
