People in Charge (PICs) are there to keep things safe and running smoothly. The PICs’ names and pictures are posted on the wall to help you identify them any time throughout the weekend. You may ask any PIC who is not in scene or aftercare for help or advice, or voice any concerns to them at any time.
If you think someone is playing dangerously, tell a PIC. The word of the PIC is LAW. If you ignore a PIC’s request, you will be asked to leave. In the event of an emergency, the PICs are to be obeyed without question.
All encounters should be negotiated beforehand, and no means no. Keep it safe, sane, consensual and polite! The event safewords are “red” and “safeword.” If a player calls one of these words, the scene must stop immediately regardless of other negotiations, and a PIC will intervene if it does not.
Respect the play space of others; don’t interrupt, don’t barge in, and don’t offer advice unless asked. This applies to both play and aftercare. You are welcome to watch scenes in progress, but please bring animated conversations out of earshot.
NO photos are permitted inside the event venue.
BYOT: bring your own toys. If you wish to borrow someone else’s, ask nicely. No one is under any obligation to lend out toys.
Play in designated areas only, and wipe down any equipment after use with the disinfectant wipes set out for that purpose. Use the chucks provided if you plan to have sex that may unleash bodily fluids on unsuspecting equipment, and thoroughly clean up any stray wet spots using the disinfectant wipes.
Scene play (including sex) is not permitted in the lounge / aftercare area. The purpose of the lounge area is to provide space for post-play snuggling and general socializing.
Respect the designated disability seating. Leave the marked chairs where they are stationed, and use them only if you have a disability. These seats are NOT intended for general use or for draping your toys.
Respect the designated chill zone. This area is set aside expressly for people who need to take mental health breaks to be apart from the crowd. It is not a general social area or play space and is not intended for scene aftercare, sex or making out. It is reserved for napping, meditating, cuddling and other quiet activities.
No alcohol or illegal drugs are permitted. If you appear to be intoxicated you will be asked to refrain from playing. Smoking is permitted outside only.
Any play that involves fire must be cleared with a PIC prior to beginning and proper safety measures must be taken. Please come fully prepared with your own fire blanket and all other safety measures appropriate to your specific scene. The fire extinguisher must remain within your reach at all times.
For blood play, remain in the medical area, avoid blood spray, safely dispose of your sharps in the containers provided, and wipe down all surfaces thoroughly once you are done using the disinfectant wipes provided.
Piss play is allowed in the bathrooms and in the fluid-friendly area. No piss play on or near the carpeting! For piss play, please bring your own container (baby pool, carefully arranged tarps and towels, etc.), make sure all fluids stay contained, and clean up after your play thoroughly. Please note that the event space has no shower facilities. No scat play.
Wrestling-type play must be kept within the designated wrestling space.
