Cirque de Sade: Annual Island of Misfit Toys
Sleigh balls ring, tits are tinseled…
This month our macabre theater and kink play party brings you our annual celebration of snow folx, slutty reindeer and evil eleves.
Spend the evening embracing your dark side at our macabre circus. Whether you’re a player or voyeur, we offer an enthusiastic environment for taboo play for Tops and bottoms of all genders, orientations, roles and relationships. All attendees should be prepared to see and hear things that may shock or delight you.
All edge scenes are pre-vetted performances. To become a performer, submit the Edge Performance Vetting Form a minimum of 48 hours before the party you wish to edge play at. You will be notified of your scheduled time within one week.
Please direct all questions to [email protected]. Thank you.
Edge tastings are offered as a way for kinksters to try something new to them in a safe environment. Sign up is on a first come basis. Find the tasting sign up coordinator near the stage area. If you have experience with a particular offering, we ask that you allow others the opportunity to gain that experience. Thank you.
“In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice. It is always by way of pain one arrives at pleasure.” -Marquis de Sade
Event info including Rules, Edge Play Defined, Volunteer Info, Playlists, and General Discussions can be found in the Cirque group and in the writings section on our profile. Please read all the info including the Code of Conduct, before attending any Cirque de Sade event.
Edge players are performers and must submit a pre-event interview and vetting form which details your scene specifics, experience level, safety precautions in place during play and hygienic clean up practices. This will help DM’s understand the parameters of your scene so your play can continue uninterrupted. The hosts will review your form and may contact you with questions or clarifications. If your form is not received a minimum of 48 hours before the event, you will not be permitted to play at the edge. Standard kink play and voyeurism is welcome.*
Bring your dark play out of the shadows. Abandon your fear of wild abandon. Unleash your extreme edge. Feast on the fringe. Voyeur the veritable quandaries.
DEI in Kink
As hosts we are committed to continually striving toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive kink community. We actively seek educational opportunities, open conversations and reparations to marginalized groups and individuals in our local kink community. If you identify as a BIPOC or differently abled person, we invite you to connect with us so we may support you in attending Cirque de Sade. We want you there!
Unique Floor Plan
Catering to both exhibitionists and voyeurs, we’ve arranged the floor plan for maximum viewing and efficient traffic flow, no traffic jams or obstructed views in the house.
We collaborate with the DMRG to provide DM’s with training and experience in extreme play and CPR/First Aid training, We have basic dungeon clean up, safer sex supplies, a basic first aid kit, unique furniture, hard points. Please bring everything else you need for your physical and emotional safety, your scene, high level hygienic clean up (cavicide, bio-bag, 4ml plastic sheeting, sharps container, pee pads, etc), and thorough aftercare. It is wise to bring your own towels, tarp or drop cloth. Please message @CirquedeSadePdx with any questions.
Due the potentially dangerous aspects of edge play, we want to emphasize the requirement of experience, consent and maturity. This is not an event to “try something new.” Stringer pick up play is not permitted: know your partner, know yourself, know your kink.
When setting up your scene you may be visited by the DM’s and/or hosts to check in about consent, verbal and nonverbal safe-signals and your safety plan. This is not to second guess you or challenge your authority, it is to mitigate risk and establish a safe environment during high risk activities, so your scene can play out uninterrupted. If you have questions, or want clarification about scenes prior to the event, please send a DM to @CirquedeSadePdx
