We will be holding a queer focussed play party for 2 hours in the dome on Friday night 22:00-00:00. The space will be hosted by one female and one male queer team member.
So come out and play with us, whoever you are, if you identify as queer, you are welcome. It will be a kink and sex positive space with a focus on fun and safe consensual exploration for anyone that feels less able to do this in the main space as a result of their sexuality or gender identity.
The feedback on Summer House play parties a couple of years ago identified that there are guests that feel like a queer specific play environment was welcomed. So following on from its inception last year, this Summer House will have a held space for queer play in the dome for the first 2 hours of the play party. On Friday night, 22:00-00:00.
The space is for all people that identify as queer. It is also welcome for solo visitors to play solo, however please ensure that you are doing this in a way that does not include actively staring at or intruding upon any of the other play in the space.
The time will be hosted and supervised by 2 queer team members, one male and one female, in order to consciously hold the space for all people coming in. Our names are Benjamin and Emily and we will introduce ourselves during the Friday morning meeting as well as have identifying labels whilst in the dome. The hosts are on hand at all times in this 2 hours to support you. If you have any questions about the space before during or after, please ask one of us, and do not disturb the other guests.
All types of queer play are welcomed and encouraged in this environment during this time period. It will be a kink and sex positive space and all guests coming in to it should be aware of that. Safer sex provisions will be on hand.
We have no desire to police or question your identity or interactions, but we hope very much that everyone coming in to the space will come in knowing the purpose and intention of the room during these hours, and support the space by only coming in if you fit within the brief we are setting. It is for people who’s play and sexual identity might make them feel less able to explore that in the main playrooms. As such, please be clear that any kind of shaming or fetishation or non consensual/ high pressured approach of any guest in the space will be responded to quickly and unfavourably.
