How can I get involved in planning Hot Times events?

Is the Feb 22 event a bath house?

No, it’s not. There are some important differences between play parties and bath houses, the most noticeable being that you must keep undies (at least;) ) on at all times. That doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of other fun to be had!

Can I Have Sex?

Not at these events, no. The space isn’t set up to handle oral, anal or vaginal penetration at this time. The Hot Times Collective will, however, have safer sex supplies available at the door in case you need some on the way out. Think of this event as foreplay!

It is NOT okay for anyone to pressure or force you into doing anything you don’t want to or haven’t given permission for; if this happens, please tell an organizer or T-team member!

Is There Somewhere to Store My Stuff?

There are a few cubbies available in the common area, first come, first served. It’s best not to bring any unnecessary valuables.

Do I have to be experienced with BDSM/kink?

Certainly not! Our events are open to people with all levels of experience. If you’ve ever been curious, this is a great chance to observe or try things out in a supportive environment, alongside people who have skills and passion. If you are unfamiliar with a particular activity, please ask an organizer to assist!

If you are concerned about someone else’s play, please report it to the Dungeon Monitor or an organizer rather than intervening.

Is this only for people new to BDSM/kink?

Certainly not!  Our events are open to people with all levels of experience. While not everyone may have participated in your preferred activity, there will be many people present with a deep knowledge and interest in kink and BDSM. We do, however, ask that no play involving bodily fluids, or other R.A.C.K. (Risk-Aware, Consensual Kink) activities be practiced at the February 22 event.

If you are concerned about someone else’s play, please report it to the Dungeon Monitor or an organizer rather than intervening.

What are some basic play party etiquette guidelines?

What is RACK? SSC?

What is the bathhouse venue like?

Seadogs Sauna and Spa is a 2-level building. You enter into a lounge area with comfortable seating and a bar.  No alcohol is served during Hot Times Collective events but we will have snacks available for free. Genitals must be covered in the lounge. Further inside you will find a hallway with many small rooms off of it with beds that are open for anyone to use.  Doors must be kept open at all times.  At the back of the main floor is a hot tub, a sauna, and showers.  Downstairs there are more small rooms, a maze area, and a swing. Upon arrival, all guests have the option to take a tour of the venue. Volunteers will be available for questions or assistance around the venue throughout the night.

Here are some links to the Seadogs floorplan and a photo tour from their website. Not Safe For Work!

What Happens at a Bath House?

Short answer: Whatever you ask for!

For a longer answer, see this post, “What Can Happen at May Day!?

Do I have to have sex?

No!  At our events we try to provide an environment where folks with different kinds of bodies and desires can feel comfortable having different kinds of sex, but we also welcome you to just have great conversations or great kisses, to relax in the hot tub and sauna, or to enjoy the sexy environment without having what you define as sex.

It is NOT okay for anyone to pressure or force you into doing anything you don’t want to or haven’t given permission for; if this happens, please tell an organizer or T-team member!

Do I need to bring my own gear?

The Hot Times Collective will provide safer sex supplies such as condoms, lube, dental dams and gloves.  We also have “lending library” of sex toys for use by guests.  However, if you have a favorite toy, type of lube, or flogger, please bring it with you!

We try our best, but we may not have supplies for those sensitive to latex, or with other allergies. If you have concerns, it’s best to bring some of your own.

Do I have to get naked?

No!  You must change out of your street clothes when you arrive, but you can change into whatever you’re comfortable in.  You must cover your genitals in the lounge area, but nudity is welcome in all other areas. Feel free to wear a costume or whatever makes you feel sexy; get creative!

Will there be somewhere for me to store my stuff?

There will be lockers available, and there may be private rooms to rent for the evening.  You are responsible for securing your items, and we suggest you leave your wallet at home.  The Hot Times Collective and Seadogs Sauna and Spa are not responsible for lost things. DO NOT BRING VALUABLES!

What is the T-Team?

The Hot Times Collective will have volunteer T-Team members available to all attendees throughout the night of the bathhouse. What this means is there will be people who will be available to listen to people who are triggered or just need someone to talk to if they are not in a great headspace. What we can offer is active listening, resources and information on a variety of community organizations that also offer support. What we are not trained to offer is therapeutic advice or possible solutions to problems that might arise (though if it is an immediate situation in which guidelines are being disrespected, T-team and / or organizing members will address it).

We want to be transparent about what we can and can’t offer in the way of support for those who are interested in coming to the bathhouse, and trust you to make a decision about whether that is enough support or not. Please talk to T-team and organizing members if you have thoughts or suggestions on creating a safer space.
