PARTY HOSTS

WALK AROUND HOST

You are the eyes and ears of this Kinky Salon. Your influence as a front of house host will contribute to creating the vibe of this event. Your vigilance, combined with your friendly attitude is what creates a safe and welcoming space.

  • Be the welcome wagon: If your shift starts at the beginning of the night, start your evening mingling near the entrance of the main area and keep a lookout for people who look nervous. Introduce yourself and give them a quick tour of the venue.
  • The first shift of the night is full of excitement as guests are arriving. Problems arise. You will need to multitask and use your judgement to problem solve as issues arise.
  • Walk around: This is a social job, but try not to get sidetracked by socializing! Keep moving and don’t get stuck in long conversations.
  • Do what needs to be done: If there is a spill, clean it up. If it is warm, open a window. If the trash gets full, take it out. Check on the toilets and make sure they’re stocked and tidy. This is the glamorous part of the job 😉
  • Check in on the volunteers: As you do the rounds of the event, check in on all the volunteers and make sure they are happy. If they need to pee, take over for a minute. If they need a drink, fetch one for them. If they need to get a message to someone, relay it for them.
  • Be on watch: Scan the crowd for potential problems and catch them before they begin. For example, if you see someone drinking too much, or if you see a couple arguing, gently check in with them and make sure they are okay.
  • Get a second opinion: If a situation comes up that you are not sure how to deal with, find another volunteer, and chat with them about it before you do anything.
  • Pass on your tips: When your shift ends, make sure you pass on all the information about what has been going on to the next front of house host. Let them know about potential problems and give them any tips you have.

 

PLAYROOM HOST

You are the eyes and ears of this Kinky Salon. Your influence as a playroom monitor contributes to creating the vibe of this event. Your vigilance, combined with your friendly attitude is what creates a safe and welcoming space.

  • Be the welcome wagon: As people arrive in the play space say hi and introduce yourself. Show them the play space agreements, remind them of our towel policy and let them through.
  • Put an end to lurking: Kinky Salon is not a place for lurkers. If you see someone lingering unaccompanied in the play spaces on their own, let them know that this is not acceptable by saying “Excuse me, you need to be with a PAL to come into this area.” Don’t forget to smile and keep your tone friendly and light
  • Put an end to chit chat in play areas: The parlor entryway has two rooms where talking is allowed. In the BDSM area and the playspace near the restroom chatting should be kept to a minimum. If conversations are ruining the mood of the parlor give them a tap on the shoulder a friendly “Sh.”
  • Do a walk through: Every now and again take a walk through the space making sure that everything is as it should be. If it is warm, open a window. If the safer sex supplies are low, replenish them. This is the glamorous part of the job 😉
  • Be on watch: Scan the crowd for potential problems and catch them before they begin. For example, if you see someone drinking too much, or if you see a couple arguing, gently ask them to come outside and check in with them to make sure they are okay.
  • Get a second opinion: If a situation comes up that you are not sure how to deal with, find another volunteer, and chat with them about it before you do anything.
  • Pass on your tips: When your shift ends, make sure you pass on all the information about what has been going on to the next cottage host. Let them know about potential problems and give them any tips you have.
  • About leaving your post: If something needs your attention and you can’t deal with it on your own, leave your post to get help. Don’t wait for someone to come to you. 

Note: previous monitoring experience is required
