Club Awakening

This is the party for you if you are new to the scene (1-2 years or less) OR are bringing someone new. Don’t worry – even if you aren’t new, this party is open to ALL! It will feature more seasoned volunteers to run a handful of various tasting booths, including hands-on play, crops and canes, paddles, floggers, and rope (and a special surprise booth!) Our Volunteer Assistants are there to not only welcome everyone, but also answer questions, help you through the process of negotiation for a scene, and/or simply point you in the right direction. In addition, there will be experienced practice bottoms in case you want to try something new from the Top side! Club Awakening is held monthly since 2016 at Sanctuary Studios LAX in Los Angeles, CA.
