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.

Visual or audio recording can be done in the play area with prior permission. This is only during private bookings. 

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. The studio itself is fully insured for public liability and professional indemnity. Be aware that we cannot insure equipment that is not ours. Please make sure that your own insurance covers this. 

Age:

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.

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.

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 pause play to verify.

Staff will be present at all public events and will be close by during private bookings.

CCTV:

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.

We are ICO registered.

As we are not licenced for alchohol sales and don’t sell alcohol, CCTV is not a legal requirement for us.

Therefore it can be turned off during private bookings. If you require this please request it.
