Join The Demons in Santa Cruz at The 418 Project in downtown Santa Cruz for our January edition rope lab and social hour! Free Queer munch followed by a sliding scale ticketed rope jam.
Social Hour: 6-7pm, FREE. Welcome to any and all members of the Queer, kinky, BDSM, non-monogamous, etc. communities and allies. This is a time to mix and mingle with your fellow community members and be around a bunch of like-minded people in a PRIVATE setting! We will have some intros at 6pm, but feel free to participate in the group activities as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. This is a substance-free munch.
This month’s social hour focus is rope bottoming. We are highlighting discussion around this topic and highlighting hearing from individuals that personally identify with this community.
Rope Jam: 7-10pm, sliding scale tickets $15-35. Please plan to arrive before 8:30pm. Welcome to all skill levels, with a focus on those who are newer to tying or looking to skillshare with their peers. This is not a formal education environment, but we encourage community. We provide a handful of books and other educational materials to borrow, as well as loaner rope if you don’t have your own. There will be a few suspension rigs, two aerial points, lots of cushions, and plenty of floor space to spread out. Cutting tool REQUIRED for any and all rope scenes (labbing and floor rope scenes included).
COVID Precautions: Masks required except when actively engaging in a scene or eating/drinking. All participants must be vaccinated. If you test positive up to 7 days after the event, please let us know so we can inform all other attendees while maintaining your privacy.
Attire: Come as you are. We suggest something comfortable and cozy (ahem, Cass) but come in whatever outfit you like! This is absolutely a venue you can dress up for, and if you want to do some cool rope and take some fun pictures, this can be the space for that!
Photo policy: Photos are welcome, just make sure that you have permission from everyone in the photo (INCLUDING THOSE IN THE BACKGROUND) before sending or posting anywhere. Please note we cannot guarantee full privacy in this day and age, so plan accordingly. We may have a house photographer(s) on site to take photos and will be implementing a wristband system- adapted from Twisted Windows rope jams.
Green: Anyone, including the house photographer(s), your tying partner, and other attendees may take your photo. No one may post without your explicit consent.
Yellow: Only the house photographer and people you delegate may take your photo.
Red: NOONE, including the house photographer, may take your photo. If we see someone taking your photo, even your tying partner, we will approach them and ask them to immediately delete the photos.
