The Kinky Salon Code of Conduct was created by the community and states our intention and our standards. We created it so that it would be super easy for newbies to understand how to behave at our events. Follow these simple do’s and don’ts and you’ll fit right in:
- Be creative about how you dress.
- Contribute when and where you can.
- State your boundaries.
- Play safely and consensually.
- Have sensible safe sex practices.
- Respect our space and each other.
- Clean up after yourself.
- Linger unaccompanied in play spaces.
- Cruise aggressively (even if they are really cute).
- Get too intoxicated.
- Take photographs.
- Use your cell phone.
- Gossip about what goes on here.
THE LONG VERSION
Be creative about how you dress. It’s not about having the most fabulous, over the top costume. And it’s not about spending the last of your hard-earned savings on expensive threads. Imagination is free. A sense of humour is free. So just express yourself in whatever form is right for you. But dressing up in some kind of silly costume is a must, as it helps to create an atmosphere where everyone feels equally ridiculous. So please never come in standard street wear — jeans, khakis, sportswear and the like are verboten at Kinky Salon. And our friendly door team will be checking to make sure everyone arrives with an appropriate costume.
Contribute when and where you can. The Kinky Salon community is created through the efforts of everyone involved. If you want to volunteer, perform, or have a creative offering, drop us a line. We would love to hear from you.
State your boundaries. If someone makes you uncomfortable, for ANY reason, then you should let them know. That includes touching without asking, saying something that offends you, or even just looking at you in a way you don’t like. Be nice, be graceful, but be firm.
Play safely and consensually. Be clear about what your safe sex practices are, and never stick your finger up someone’s butt without asking first.
Respect our space and each other. Being respectful towards each other and our environment means that we can build an atmosphere of trust. So all you fuckers need to R.E.S.P.E.C.T- dig?
Clean up after yourself. Like, really people.
Linger unaccompanied in play spaces. Please, please, please, don’t hang out on your own watching people! It makes them feel uncomfortable and it makes you look like a Wanky McJerkoff!!
Cruise aggressively (even if they are really cute). Learn to know the difference between ‘playing hard to get’ and ‘get the fuck outta my face.’ If you are given a hint, then take it. There is nothing more unattractive than desperation.
Get too intoxicated. Having a couple of drinks is fine, we are all grown ups here. But if you get shit-faced we will notice and we will kick you out.
Take photographs. We usually have a pro photographer here to capture your fabulous outfit at our (optional) Photo Booth, so keep your cameras AND your cellphones stashed for the duration.
Use your cell phone. Cell phone use is not welcome at Kinky Salon. Keep your phone stashed. If you need to use your phone, take it outside. That means calls, texting, social networking… ANY use of your phone is prohibited.
Gossip about what goes on here. At Kinky Salon we feel that valuing people’s privacy is an important part of creating a safe space where everyone can just “be themselves.” So NEVER mention names or specific activities on any public blogs or message boards. What happens at Kinky Salon stays at Kinky Salon.
