Tickets are now sold out – join our mailing list to be the first to hear about future events!

This gala reception features exquisitely erotic, sensually subversive, and particularly provocative performance art, including suspension bondage, pole dance, living statues, fetish acts, and burlesque, as well as decorated selfie stations, interactive art, gourmet bites, and other participatory marvels. All proceeds go to compensate artists and to support the Folsom Street 501(c)3 non-profit arts and culture organization.

Please carefully read our COVID guidelines to determine whether attending this event is within your risk profile. Particularly, note the k/n95 mask and up-to-date vaccination, including booster if eligible, requirements. Details below.

Location: Folsom Street Community Center, 145 9th St Suite 105, San Francisco, CA 94103

Schedule: Doors open at 7:30pm, event from 8pm - 11pm. Please plan to arrive no later than 9pm.

Attire: Twisted Windows is an artistic fetish environment, and you are part of that environment. Wear what makes you feel amazing and seize this opportunity for your finery to be fully appreciated! Fairytale themed or formal attire, leather/lace/latex, and lingerie all appreciated. Nipples and bits must be covered in the hallways. No effort = no entry. Attendees are required to wear masks at all times, except when actively eating/drinking (we will provide gourmet snacks and single-serve non-alcoholic beverages).

Entry requirements: This event is 18+, ID and proof of vaccination required. We require up to date vaccination (which includes a booster, if eligible). See details under "COVID Guidelines" below. All attendees must abide by our code of conduct and sign our release form.

Photography: To quote the Ropecraft photo policy: "It should be understood that given current availability of photographic technology, there is no way for any event or individual to guarantee that your photo will not be taken at any kink event. Please evaluate your own risk accordingly." We do not allow attendees to take photos or videos of performers or of other attendees (without consent). We have professional photographers, and allow performers to record their own performances. At times we will blur background/non-focus figures, such that there are no identifiable features. There are also clearly marked selfie areas, with backdrops.

This space is wheelchair accessible. ASL interpreters are available upon request – please email by 2 weeks prior to the event to request an interpreter.

Only VIP tickets come with a reserved seat. The only difference between Tiers 1, 2, and 3 tickets is price (there are a limited number of Tier 1 and Tier 2 tickets available). Please contact the producers for accessibility questions and accommodations.

Refund policy: Up to 5 days prior to the event, tickets are fully refundable – attendees may refund themselves using the link in the confirmation email. Within 5 days of the event, there is a set number of refunds we have budgeted to provide for folks who are unable to attend for COVID-related reasons. Given the complexities and financial risk of event production, capacity limits, extremely tight budgets (with event proceeds entirely going to pay space rent and pay performers), and logistical impossibility of re-selling tickets at the 11th hour, when/if we reach our pre-set refund cap, from that point on tickets will be fully transferable but not refundable. Please contact us for any questions or concerns.

COVID Guidelines

Please note that these guidelines are subject to change depending on state and national standards, local caseloads and hospital capacity, variants, and so on. Please see our full COVID guidelines here.

At this time, COVID precautions include:

  • Requiring proof of up to date vaccination (which includes a booster, if eligible). Sufficient proof of vaccinated status is a state/federally issued vaccine card, a legible photograph of your card, or digital vaccine record. Please see this page for guidance on what it means to be "up to date" on your vaccination. Attendees who arrive without proof of vaccination per the parameters above will not be allowed entry, and will not have their tickets refunded.
  • Performing a symptom screen (including touchless temperature check) and attestation at the door.
  • Limiting capacity to allow for physical distancing.
  • Bringing portable air purifiers with HEPA filters, and taking steps to increase ventilation (such as opening windows) when possible.
  • Providing hand sanitizer throughout the space.
  • Masking – see below.

We provide and require n95/kn95 masks. These masks provide very robust protection, even with one-way masking, regardless of what anyone around you is doing. There is substantial evidence suggesting that medical grade masks are significantly more protective than cloth masks, and k/n95 masks are more protective still. You can put them under your cute cloth mask! Masks may be removed while eating/drinking. Note that choosing to remove your mask is at your own risk.

Masks may optionally be removed by performers while they are performing.

As always, despite all mitigation efforts, exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any location where people are present. When deciding whether attending in-person events at a particular time is right for you, please weigh your individual risk factors (health conditions, unvaccinated or immunocompromised contacts, age, and so on) to take care of yourselves and those around you.
