Q. Where do I get a Pleasure Crew Membership?
A. Right here: https://aspecc.ca/product/the-pleasure-crew-membership/ Remember that you have to complete the online orientation in order for your membership to be valid.
Q. How much experience do I need to have to attend this event?
A. All experience levels are welcome. We have trained and screened volunteers available to demonstrate and share their skill and knowledge in all listed activities.
Q. How is this different from a private play party or public dungeon?
A This event is intended for those who are new, so that you can interrupt what you are seeing, ask questions, or even try the activity yourself! Typical adult play spaces are set up for adults to go and engage in an acitivty with their playmate/partner(s) and interruption is generally discouraged (with some exceptions). The volunteers here that are demonstrating have all submitted a police background check and participated in an orientation that provides information on consent and respecting boundaries. This is also not the typical level of screening found in Adult play spaces.
Q. Do I need to bring a partner?
A. No. You are welcome to bring (a) partner(s), but it is not required.
Q. What should I expect at this event?
A. You need to arrive promptly before 8pm. The orientation will explain the event, and details the rules, clean up practies, and introduces the demonstration volunteers. Then there is a short tour, showing where each demonstration area is. After that you are free to wander from one demonstration to another. You are encouraged to ask questions, to try the activity or ask for instruction on how to do the activity (whatever interests you!). Most people will try various things. If you do try, you will be in charge of everything that happens. You guide the volunteer as to what you want to experience.
Q. What about nudity?
A. We permit top nudity, but bottom nudity is not permitted at this event. We have found that most people are more comfortable in a new space when botton nudity is not permitted.
Q. What about sex?
A. This event does not permit sex. We define sex as any activity involving hand to genitals, mouth to genitals, toys to genitals, or genital to genital If you are still unsure, don’t hesitate to ask.
Q. I thought you folks were sex positive?
A. We are. Sex positive means to view sexual pleasure as natural, healthy and positive. Some of our events are sex permissive, some are not. This is for the comfort of our guests and attendees.
Q. What about sexuality? And Gender Diversity?
A. All of our events include firm policies in place to support inclusion of all persons regardless of gender or sexuality. We have a zero tolerance for homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and otherwise bigoted behaviours. Most of the organizers and volunteesr are gender queer, transgender, asexual, queer etc.
Q. What about consent?
A. Consent is a priority here. We will not tolerate sexually aggressive behaviours. This will be discussed more at the orientation.
