Come join our hosts Jadzia and Elissa on first Tuesdays at 8 p.m. Pacific Time as we welcome people from all across the kinky and sex-positive queer community. Our focus during this discussion group will be on all the ways our queer identities interact with our kink and sex-positive lives. As queer people, we experience unique challenges and the CSPC is proud to offer a place to celebrate and commiserate through sharing experiences.

We’ll spend the first portion of the meeting checking in about what’s going on in our lives. The rest is spent discussing topics that explore how we navigate our understanding of ourselves and our relationships with others, our society, kink and how we can strive for more self-knowledge and happiness.

THE VERY NOT FINE/HUGE & IMPORTANT PRINT

  • Because (_-CONSENT IS LIT AF BB-_) we have a one-strike rule: break the rules, you will be escorted out. The lovely staff don’t take kindly to a**holes, creeps, homophobes, transphobes, MAGA hats, and dumba$$ rule-breaking hooligans!
  • There will be some built-in audience participation, and we want it to be enthusiastic, playful, and SHAME FREE!! That includes the comics!
  • The kinks are playful demonstrations & interpretations, so nothing X Rated or too sExUal GASP. We use the Green-Red light system with both our comics & audience.



Saturday 7 January

Fetish Night

8:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.

CC Attles, 1701 East Olive Way, Seattle 98122

Cost: None

Link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CCATTLES (requires joining Facebook Group)

Description:

Every FIRST Saturday of the month is CC’s Seattle Fetish Night. Gear up in your favorite fetish attire and join your friends for a hot night of great drinks, and sexy surprises.

As always there will be two lines to enter, with those in fetish gear getting priority. Clothing check available for a donation.

IMPORTANT: Fetish night has begun enforcing a dress code: “Leather, Uniform, Rubber, and Etcetera” (L.U.R.E.) is the standard for Fetish Night. “Etcetera” applies to an unlisted fetish/kink, like a fursuit, singlet, or age play gear. The theme for Fetish Night also falls under “Etcetera,” yet it needs to be fetish/kink-adjacent for it to be deemed acceptable L.U.R.E. attire.”

Capitol Hill, exact location revealed upon registration

Cost: None

Link: https://seattleleather.org/events-lite/rope-lab

Description:

RopeLab Seattle is a collaborative men’s rope bondage community for experienced rope riggers to workshop and practice rope techniques. This is a space for gay and bisexual men, transmen, and other male-presenting people to participate in ropework peer-learning skillshare.

There is no evaluation/requirement for proof of skill level. If you feel you have the necessary skills to participate, you are encouraged to attend. However, the focus of RopeLab Seattle will always highlight the needs of our community’s advanced riggers: RopeLab Seattle is not the place to learn your first knots, but once you have those down (having learned them at one of many great educational events such as Men Tying Men or a ropes class facilitated by SLSC) you are encouraged and welcome to join RopeLab Seattle.

Each RopeLab begins with a welcome and introduction to the evening’s topic/theme often accompanied by a photo slideshow highlighting a variety of methods or approaches to the theme/topic. Participants are encouraged to dialogue about these approaches and share examples of things they have tried, or want to try. After a short discussion, participants are encouraged to form small groups around specific interests related to the theme and then begin roping. This is very much a collaborative educational learning/workshop space and NOT a play party. Participants are encouraged to wander around the space to see other approaches to the topic/theme and engage in discussion. It is encouraged to swap/rotate your tying partner throughout the event to provide a variety of body types to practice on; however, we understand that some people may not be comfortable with a different tying partner, and that should be respected.
