Feel empowered to define your roles together. We’re not controlling, but merely guiding the conversation between you and your matched partners so that you can get the negotiations rolling.
How many times have you been to the bar, but didn’t know how to bring up the “Power Exchange” topic? It’s not like you can just say, I prefer to make most of the decisions, are you submissive? Come switch that scenario up and feel free to make your dynamics known at Misfits in Portland!
Surrender yourself to this engaging and non-confining space to explore your passions. You set the terms on how much submission or dominance you are willing to give in a fun, friendly and safe environment. No one is inferior here, but you decide how “equal” you want to be in the power shift.
Find a new potential play partner, mentor, friend, or maybe even a new romantic entanglement! And remember, it’s all about consent.
Each “negotiation” is 8 minutes with 2 minutes and then we “switch” rounds; that's 15 dates for our speed dates. During the open mingle, you may meet the other potential dates, try new date locations, or visit your favorite location/person again! Your hostess will match you up using your preferences.

This event is geared at pansexual & gender expansive folks, so there will be a variety of genders in your personal experience. This means connections of all queer and straight varieties are possible! (If you're only interested in dating or friending one gender type person, this event is not for you)
We highly recommend fetish wear, black clothes, or dress up in your finest. No one turned away for attire but presentation matters. Please cover your bits & be "french vanilla" to the door. You may change once you enter as well!
The craving for human connection has been powerful in recent years post-pandemic, and we wanted to create a hub to role play & set fire with that initial connection. All genders, sexualities, gender expressions, relationship styles, etc. are encouraged to attend. We support and promote all LGBTQ+ identities, trans, gender expansive, BIPOC, kinky, and relationship expansive or mono folks.
