We will be using Zoom, a video chat platform that allows up to 100 users to tune in at a time. All you need is a computer or phone that allows you to tune in; if you don’t have a video camera or mic, you can still chat with folks and see what is happening on the screen. This format also lets you create a custom username so people can see you by your pet or scene name instead of a legal name.
1) Please wear bar-friendly gear. Tail plugs are ok.
2) This will be a strictly 18+ event.
3) Please refrain from heavier BDSM and sexual play. While we are all adults, not everyone is comfortable seeing that and you never know who may be tuning in on their lunch break. Fetish gear, restraints, and light play are okay.
4) While we love squeaky toys and barks and howls, please be mindful of getting them too close to your mics.
