Almost everyone has incorporated spanking in some form into their kinky bag of tricks. SPANK! is a pansexual celebration of that erotic art of spanking - from sensual sensation play to butt-blistering beatings, and everything in between. Bring your creativity, your energy, your awesome self. This party is a perfect way to celebrate your love of spanking at a fun party. See old friends, make new ones, and play the night away at SPANK - Halloween Edition!
While spanking may be the focus of the night, only your imagination can limit the kind of fun you can have at the Bay Area’s hottest spanking party!
The backdrop to your hair-raising and lip-biting Halloween will be an eclectic, sexy and well established party venue in Oakland. The venue features distinct, indoor and outdoor play/social areas, multiple working restrooms, a coat-check and a plethora of play stations.
We'll have role stickers at the party to help identify and spark connections. In addition - we will be using our wristband system to help people appropriately initiate social interactions. People who are comfortable being respectfully approached about the possibility of play will be wearing yellow wristbands. If you see someone wearing a red wristband, that indicates that they prefer to not be approached about play, but may be open to conversations on other topics. Let them bring up play, don’t bring it up to them.
You can also meet and chat with others who are coming to this party ahead of time by checking out SPANK - Halloween Edition on the Bloom Community app.
A small dungeon already exists at the location and we will be bringing in more pieces for guests to play on. Enjoy the kinky furniture - or get creative and show us how else you might use the space. The cottage has soft spaces for sexual play and we will be creating non-sexual cuddle areas for ace folks, aftercare, etc. Weather permitting - we will also be setting up some play stations in the courtyard.
It’s Halloween so we encourage you to dress up - make an effort to impress! Scary or sexy costumes, lingerie, or fetishwear are always welcome as are dungeon blacks. If nothing else comes to mind then dress as you would for a fancy night out. You can be kinky, subversive, etc. No street clothes, etc.
Please be mindful that you might have to wait in line outside and that you are welcome to arrive in regular clothes and then change into your kinky outfit once you get inside!
