Terms of Hire
Making a booking:
If you would like to make a booking please use the contact us form on the website to tell us which dates and times that you would like to book. Please be aware that the studio is open from 10am to 10pm Sunday to Thursday and 10am to 11pm on Friday and Saturday.
We will usually be back in touch with you within a few hours to let you know if your preferred date and time is available.
N.B – in all cases there is a 20% booking fee. This is to secure your booking.
If you have to cancel please let us know within 48 hours of the booking. If this is not adhered to then the booking fee will be forfeited. If the cancellation is made in the required time then a new booking can be made within one month of the original date.
All booking feeds can be paid by cash, bank transfer, or via Paypal.
We request that you arrive promptly to your booking as time cannot be added on to make up for lateness. This is so that we do not inconvenience customers that book after you.
We won’t cancel your booking – but if we do, we will provide you with a full refund.
Use of the Studio:
If you are intoxicated or appear to be incapacitated in any way, we will remove you from the premises. The nature of this environment requires a certain amount of sense and awareness and if you don’t appear to have that, we will ask you to leave. There will be no refunds or expenses paid.
Any play that requires blood or piercing must be brought to our attention first. This also applies to anything that requires an open flame or bladed instrument.
No visual or audio recording can be done in the play area without prior permission. If you are caught, you will be asked to delete any recording that have been made. Repeat offenders will have their equipment disabled and you will be asked to leave.
If you are renting the studio for professional use – please make sure that you have up to date PLI and Third Party Insurance. We may ask for this.
This is an adult environment and as such we ask that all bookings are made by adults. If we believe that a person is too young to be involved in an activity, we will ask for proof of age. If this cannot be provided we will ask them to leave.
If you are hiring the studio professionally we ask that you age verify all persons brought into the premises.
Care and breakages:
If during your visit to the studio there are any breakages, these will be the responsibility of the hirer. All breakages and damage must be paid for.
During your hire period you may use any of the equipment on display. The management take no responsibility for injuries that might happen during their use. Any damages are solely your responsibility.
We will check all equipment prior to your visit to make sure that any damaged items are removed.
Please use all equipment responsibly and ask management if you are not sure how something should be used properly or safely.
Glass must not be taken into the play area under any circumstances. Plastic drink ware is provided free of charge.
Cleaning equipment is available in the play space.
Anything used or dirty we ask that you leave on the floor.
Safe Sane and Consensual:
We ask that all activity carried out in the studio be negotiated before hand.
Any Consensual-Non-consent play must be brought to the attention of the management before play commences.
If we believe that play is non consensual we will ask you to leave and will refer to authorities.
This applies to all “edge play” activities. Please let us know first.
This studio adheres to the traffic light safe word system. But if we believe that play is reaching an unsafe level then management may step in and stop play.
A DM will be present at all public events and will be close by during private bookings.
The play area is monitored by Closed Circuit Television. This is a private system and is available only to the management. This system is there for your safety and will never be published or reproduced unless it’s to proper authorities to aid in the investigation of a crime.
The studio offers facilities that allow you to record your sessions using our equipment. Copies of these films will remain on our secure servers for a period of one year and will then be deleted. We will never publish or reproduce these without all participants’ prior written permission. All hirers must acknowledge that these productions are for their own home use only and that they will not be used for financial gain.
This includes publishing, or licensing online or anywhere else.
If the studio is asked to record a session we will ask for ID for anyone who does not look 21 years old. This ID will be kept privately on record for one year.
All recordings will adhere to UK decency laws. This is non negotiable.
