If you feel that you are just embarking on your journey please try to connect with those who appear to be more seasoned and are doing the types of performances and scenes that interest you most. Make sure you use discretion as to when you approach them. It is a good practice to wait until they begin socializing again after their scene and aftercare has ended.

Default safeword: If top and bottom have not negotiated their own, the default safewords are “yellow” (to pause the scene) and “red” (to immediately end the scene). If you are a bottom and find yourself in a predicament where your pre-negotiated safeword is not being honored, then please use "Red" to have your scene terminated by staff on your behalf.

Safety around backswing areas: Be mindful of straying into areas where someone is playing with a long toy (whip/flogger etc). These folks cannot see behind them, they are concentrating on a target, not who might have just walked up behind.
