Code of Conduct

OK so this is the stuff most people want to avoid so listen up. The rules of engagement apply the same as at any dungeon or play space. For those not informed yet I will spell them out here in general:

1. DO NOT INTERRUPT a scene in progress. That means no cat-calling, commenting, standing too close, or in any way attempting to engage any of the players. If you have something to say, keep it for after and only then if it’s ok by them.

2. DO NOT TOUCH people in any way that is not EXPRESSLY invited.Consent is KING and not to be assumed. I don’t care how hot he/she/they look, hands off. Period. If in doubt the establishment will ALWAYS assume consent has NOT been given and you will be evicted. Fast.

3. NO PENETRATION in any way. A single act of penetration of any kind, fingers, toys, broomsticks - whatever. It’s the fine line of the law and we will lose our venue in a split second if anyone is caught. Resist the urge or go get a room nearby or something.

4. COLLARS and the COLLAR CODE will be respected at all times. This means the following assumptions are being made:

4a: Wearing a collar with a ring is considered a sign of a submissive.This is stated purely for clarity. This is NOT an invitation for ANYONE to treat ANY submissive in a dominant manner unless the two parties have agreed and consent has been expressly given. Again we will assume it has NOT by default, so be clear.

4b: Wearing a collar with a ring with a tag or padlock is a sign that the submissive is TAKEN! Please respect the dynamic that has been created between the 2 parties. Typically this means you should be referring your enquiries to the Dominant party, although each is different. A polite enquiry will clear this up for you.

NOTE: These are assumptions the Club is making, and we want you to know them and respect them.

Security, Safety & the Green Lanyards

In order to help patrons feel comfortable we have been working with the security staff personally to ensure they understand what to look for. They are aware certain D/s play can look confronting, and are briefed on how to politely enquire if consent has been given. Both parties must respond.

The venue and Club Freak will ALWAYS assume consent has NOT been given and will act accordingly if necessary. 

If you see something amiss or feel uncomfortable or have any concern at all, please approach a Team Freak member with a green lanyard as your first point of call. All Team members are experienced lifestyle players and can render assistance quickly.

Where necessary the situation can then be escalated to security intervention if needed. This helps us help you have a better experience, and also helps the security team know when an intervention is urgently required.

Our door and security team have been fully briefed to be on the lookout for sleazy, homophobic, transphobic, kinkphobic, antisocial, or predatory behaviour which will get you instantly turfed from the event. We are an inclusive, pansexual kink event and require all our patrons to accept and respect this. Someones kink may not be your kink, but you must respect their right to it.

If you are unsure how to address someone please ask politely how they would prefer to be addressed. It’s a quick question and offends no-one, and shows you are interested and open minded.  Please refer to the Code of Conduct.

ALL INCIDENTS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT WILL BE REPORTED TO THE SEXUAL CRIMES UNIT AT THE WA POLICE DEPARTMENT.  

We have done it before and we will do it again.  

Photography

At no time is it permissable for any patrons to take photos inside the venue.  This is to preserve the anonymity of, and respect the privacy of the guests and staff and organisers.  To help us manage this we are asking patrons to leave their phone or other mobile devices in their pockets or handbags whilst in the club.  We understand not everyone using a phone is taking pictures, but we ask you to consider how your actions may affect others.  

If you wish to take photos of your friends or answer your phone or send a text, please head outside the club before doing so.  Club Freak has no problem with people taking photos of friends, however please ensure you are not inside the club, which includes the bathrooms, and that other patrons are not in the background of your photos.  

There will be Club Freak photographers in the club taking pictures of each event.  If you do not wish to be photographed please indicate this to the photographer so they may exclude you from their photos.  

We will publish the Club Freak photos to our various online sites including Facebook, Fetlife, Tumblr and Flickr.  If you see yourself in a photo and would like to have it removed simply message us at team@clubfreak.com.au and we will remove it for you as soon as possible.  

Please be aware the Albums and all Photos will be publicly available on all sites except Fetlife. 

Print copies of individual photos may be available from the photographers, please contact them directly to arrange your copies.
