Any violation of the rules might result in a hard ban from our future events. We might also share the incident report with other kink groups, especially in case of severe consent violations.
DM & Hosts (on duty) will be wearing a bright neon green harnesses.
Ask for explicit consent before engaging in any activities with others. Always ask before touching, that goes for people and their belongings.
Only an enthusiastic YES is a yes. If the other person seems hesitant or doubtful, please take that as a “No.” and don’t ask again. You may offer future opportunities for them to reach out to you if they do change their mind. The key is: Let them come to you after the initial "No"
It is also important to clearly communicate the potential risk of the play to the best of your ability.
There is zero tolerance for hate speech. Help create a safe space for everyone, regardless of their role, gender, ethnicity, orientation, religion, experience, or skill level.
Do not vandalize or go to closed-off areas.
Do not share details or the location of the venue with non-attendees. If someone approaches you and asks for the address, point them to @Nocturnal_Event or email email@example.com
Be discreet. There’s a ballet studio next door and vanilla people in the street. If you wish to step outside, please at least wear a big coat over your kink wear.
We have a changing and storage room for you to transform into your kinky authentic self ✨
If someone is making you uncomfortable, go to the DMs, or ask your friend to accompany you to do so. We are here to help.
While we try our best to create a safe space, we can not police everything. Please use your own judgment when vouching play partners, ask around for references, ask a lot of questions, and trust your gut if anything feels off.
Apply critical thinking. Plan for a “buddy system”. Negotiate before the party instead of doing pick-up play.
We need your help to create a safe space for everyone. If you notice something that doesn't seem quite right, speak up. Or please tell our DMs or the Hosts.
In case of unfortunate events or incident reports, please DM talk to us on Fetlife @Nocturnal_Events, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
We can’t cover every possible kink and situation. If there’s any gray area, please ask us for permission before doing it, as you would do for negotiating with a new play partner.
If you are using the furniture or mats, make sure to wipe them with cleaning spray before AND after your scenes. We also provide disposable sheets and waterproof pads.
No glow stick = Do not initiate a conversation with me
Red glow stick = Do not ask me for pick-up play, but I'm open to conversation.
Green glow stick = Open to conversation & potential pick-up play
When you are in the Play Space or Aftercare room, wear a glow stick on your wrist if you are open for conversation. Meanwhile, only initiate conversations with those who are wearing a glow stick. fetlife.com/users/14893916/statuses/35499217 text: Details on our Glow Stick System)

We are providing some puzzle mats for your scenes. You can also bring your own mats/blankets. Be mindful of where you set up, and avoid the social area and doorway as people might be walking through a lot. Notify the DMs so they know to keep people away.
While we do not allow “home-base” sexual play — "full" (penetrative) sexual intercourse, you may explore your sexuality with insertable toys, your all-powerful hands and your oral cavity.
For a quick summary...
🚫 Penis in vagina
🚫 Penis in anus
🚫 Pegging (from all genders, to all holes.) Using a strap on or holding any insertables and thrusting with your hip = pegging.
✅ Anal toys (plugs, hooks, dildos, beads, speculum etc.)
✅ Insertable toys in vagina (dildos, speculum, vibrator etc.)
✅ Fingering (in whichever hole)
✅ Oral sex
✅ “Outside” stimulation: Hand jobs, Hitachi, slapping, rubbing etc.
If you made a mess on the carpet/sofa, there will be a $500 fine (to the venue.)
You can enjoy exploring most types of power exchange / BDSM / Fetish play as long as everyone involved consents and is risk-aware.
If you are not sure we allow the type of kink you want to explore at our events, or you need special accommodation/set up for your scene, please contact the Host @Nocturnal_Events BEFORE the event.
