This week in kink: July 30, 2018


New to kink? Not new but want to brush up on skills or just enjoy a play party with fresh energy?  CLUB AWAKENING is what you’re looking for!  Now in the INLAND EMPIRE!!

Club Awakening is a party that was designed for newbies in the BDSM scene.  It’s been a monthly party since March 2016 at Sanctuary LAX.  Now it is happening at the NEW Sanctuary IE location!  This party includes 4 set tasting booths plus one surprise booth.  The set booths are hands on play (spanking, face slapping, etc), crops/canes/paddles, flogging, and rope.  You can either feel what these things feel like as a bottom or learn how to do these things as a Top – or both!  We even have several volunteer practice bottoms to lend a helping hand (aka butt) so you can practice even without a play partner.  Other volunteers float the venue to answer questions and help point you in the right direction.

There is also a vendor and a midnight raffle!  We provide a fun photo booth where you can get pics taken of you and your friends to commemorate the night!

You can get DISCOUNTED pre-sale tickets or pay at the door! (see below for links)

About the venue:

Sanctuary IE is a BRAND NEW location for Sanctuary Studios! The 4,000+ sq ft Sanctuary IE becomes the newest edition to the Sanctuary family and legacy. Both locations are dedicated to serving the community with a place for classes and workshops, parties and social events, and as a studio for personal and professional rentals for independent Dominas, photographers and videographers looking for a safe, private location.

    I want to attend Pride in Amsterdam! Seems like such fun!

  2. Hopefully same sex relations won’t be considered illegal anywhere as time goes on

      I agree! In my opinion, as long as someone is happy and isn’t hurting anyone else they should be able to do what they want and this includes being with and marrying whoever they choose.
