50 Shades of STFU

February 22 @ 8:00 pm - 2:00 am

Presented by Mistress Viola & head DM/cohost @MaeveMcBride50 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.

Our featured performer this month is the Rose City Showgirl, Dria Dore (@dria_dore on IG) with a smoldering Burlesque performance that will leave you melting into the floor. She is NOT TO BE MISSED.
A gorgeous suspension will follow with @NatalieRose & @ronswanson_666.

This month to combat the gloomy winter blues, let’s keep it HOT and bring those summer vibes to Sanctuary. It’s summer somewhere, so strip down to your neon hot pants. bikinis, speedos, summer dresses, maybe don some scuba gear or wetsuit catsuits (you rubber fetishists, I am talking to you!), do some Crocodile Dundee cosplay, wear some pool floaties, conjure up your favorite sea creature, gimmie some wet looks! As usual the themes are always just inspiration so no pressure to dress to theme, but the dress code (below) is always in play.

This months 10% of proceeds donations goes to mutual aid requests direct to community members in need, through Mxm Bloc PDX. This month is Black History Month! We work to feature and highlight Black performers and kinky community members throughout the year, and donate to equitable and anti-racist causes. BIPOC folks please reach out to [email protected] for a spot on the guest-list for FREE entry. If you are experiencing financial hardship or if cost is a barrier please reach out for a spot as well.

What happens at this infamous event? Performances begin around 9pm and we have now added tastings from 8pm-11pm (what are tastings? It’s a first come first serve sign-up sheet for short scenes with experienced dommes). Tastings are first come first serve and our lists do fill up! Tasters 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!

The cost of this event has gone up to $20 cash/$22CC to help support the guest-list spots, 10% of proceeds go to a monthly mutual aid org or charity, and to performers and staff for this event. If you are looking to get involved, we have some volunteer positions available for both service subs and photo-booth attendants, fill out this form here and we will reach back out for this event or the next!
