Etiquette and Rules

Etiquette and Rules

 

  1. No means no.  Get consent for everything whether it is touching, kissing, biting, spanking, touching their toys/equipment, etc.  Check that it is okay and that it is what the other person wants. Just because someone is not saying no doesn’t mean it is a yes.  Also don’t enter any of the smaller rooms without asking first if the door is open. Continuing to ask someone for something after they have said no is harassment.  Show good grace and move on.
  2. The Body Shop does not encourage or endorse any adult nudity and/or any adult sexual activity taking place inside the club.  Attendees are free to refrain from participating in any activities and should never feel pressured to disrobe or participate in any way.  Everything is done at the attendee’s own comfort level.
  3. Illegal or recreational drugs are not permitted on the premises at any time.  The Body Shop does not sell or provide alcohol. If an attendee becomes too intoxicated and/or behave in a manner deemed inappropriate then they will be asked to leave the premises. 
  4. Cameras, video cameras or any recording devices are not permitted to be used while on the premises at any time. Use of the above items will result in immediate confiscation of such devices by the management. Any confiscated items will be returned at the discretion of management. Mobile devices being used for communication ARE permitted to be used provided that you use them politely and with discretion. We highly recommend using them in the lobby of the club or outside.
  5. Please refrain from interrupting, speaking to or touching any participants in the middle of a scene unless it is an emergency.  Also please keep conversations down in the play spaces to avoid distracting those playing. If you want to have a conversation with someone, please go to the bar or social room.
  6. Complaints about the behavior of anyone are given great weight and investigated thoroughly.  Staff will talk to all involved parties to determine if any action needs to be taken. The decision of management is final.  Please refer to the Consent Policy for more detailed information.
  7. The Body Shop strives to provide a safer and inclusive space for everyone of all genders and orientations.  We expect all of our staff and patrons to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. You may see things that are not to your liking but please keep any negative comments to yourself.
  8. Please refrain from playing in the social areas.  While there is plenty of equipment and space in the areas meant for play (dungeon, rooms and main floor), please try not to take too much time on one piece of equipment as others may be waiting to use it.  
  9. If you make a mess please clean it up and always clean the equipment after use.
  10. Privacy and discretion are to be respected at all times both inside and outside of the club.  All information about party activities, attendees, etc. is to be considered confidential. What goes on at The Body Shop, stays at The Body Shop.  Please feel free to talk about what you did at the party but not who it was with or anything else in specifics without everyone’s explicit permission.  
  11. One last time for good measure: “No” means no!  The absence of a “yes” is an automatic no. A “maybe” means that you can talk more but certainly not a yes.  This applies to everyone (top, bottom, switch, all genders, etc.). No one owes you an explanation of why they said no and pressing someone for an explanation will not be tolerated.
