Kinky Carnival is for adults (21+) of all gender identities, sexual orientations, relationship configurations, races, ethnicities, body types, roles, and experience levels. We expect all attendees to honor the diversity of our communities. We will not tolerate behavior or language to the contrary at our events – particularly that which goes against the wellness of marginalized communities.
We define consent as a clear, enthusiastic, informed, freely given, ongoing, and revocable agreement for involved parties to participate in a particular act (sexual or non). We promote Risk Aware Consensual Kink (RACK) in this space and expect attendees to understand and abide by this consent framework at our events.
Kinky or sexy outfits, leather gear, or non-latex fetish wear are all welcomed (as are street clothes)! Be mindful that you might have to wait in line outside; attendees are welcome to arrive in regular clothes and then change into another outfit once inside. No full nudity and keeps your lower bits covered. Note: N-zi and police uniforms are strictly prohibited. Muir caps/covers are acceptable.
We highly encourage the use of masks and will provide them at the door. Masks are required to be worn when experiencing hands on-demonstrations at the booths. While the venue has a full bar, this event is a sober space – only non-alcoholic beverages will be served. Club Timbuktu is mostly wheelchair-accessible with ADA-compliant bathrooms. There are two seating sections in the venue with one step to access.
Located in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee, Club Timbuktu is at the corner of Center/Holton with direct access to the 15 and 22 bus lines, and is an easy drop-off spot for rideshare. Street parking only.
To respect the privacy of all involved, Kinky Carnival has a strict no photo policy. We will have a designated event photographer. At the door, all attendees will be given a wristband that designates whether they are comfortable appearing in photos. Anyone suspected of taking photos will be asked to share their camera roll and delete the images; the producer reserves the right to remove the person from the event.
Read our Consent, Liability, and Etiquette Guidelines before purchasing a ticket. By entering this event you agree to abide by these rules.
