Party Etiquette
Members and guests acknowledge they may be exposed to nudity and/or sexuality when they enter our facility.  Please understand that this is a BDSM/ Kink organization – at parties you may be exposed to clothing, language and activities that may trigger a strong emotional response.  Proceed with caution if you are likely to be triggered. 

Theme rooms are for intimate or private play. Give those playing the physical and mental room to enact their scene, or move on to another location. Doors to the theme rooms are to be kept completely open during the entire duration of Threshold events.

Your fellow members and guests are sharing a very private and intimate part of who they are with you when they play at a party. To that end, we ask that you give everyone the respect they deserve. Our party goers are invited to watch scenes from a respectful distance, so long as they do not interrupt the scene.
