Welcome to our secret society…


COVID-19 Update: Yes! We are open for rentals! We welcome returning renters, or if you are new, simply email us an introduction including how you found us, and your level of BDSM experience. We like to know who we are renting to. We have upped our already meticulous cleaning standards. Read about them here and feel free to reach out with any questions.

VIRTUAL CLASSES AND EVENTS ARE HERE! Until it is safe to gather in person, our classes and events will continue on line and we even have some exciting new additions! Head over to our events calendar to see what’s coming up. Check back often as things are still being added, OR sign up for our newsletter.

If you would like to support Sub Rosa during this time, please donate or purchase a gift certificate here.


Sub Rosa is Portland, Oregon’s only femme-owned boutique fetish space, offering kink education, one-on-one coaching, sexual empowerment classes, boudoir and fetish photography, intimate play parties, and private rentals in a beautifully appointed playspace. While Sub Rosa offers the tools and equipment of a traditional dungeon, the aesthetics are that of a dreamy femdom lair.

In Latin, SUB ROSA literally translates to “under the rose” – denoting secrecy and confidentiality. It also references our city’s nickname – The City of Roses. Portland has a well-earned reputation for being a city of kinksters and queerdos, with more strip clubs and sex clubs per capita than most cities of its size. But entering these spaces can be intimidating and overwhelming for adventurous newbies. We aim to create a safe space for consensual kink, geared to those eager to expand their skills and find transformation and confidence through BDSM.

Upcoming Classes and Events

We are passionate about building community and providing a safe (and very swanky) space to learn. To find out what’s next, check out our calendar which is updated often, and please do join the email list below for exclusive offers and invitations. Please note that all classes require pre-registration and community events are invite-only (our address is not listed publicly). All you have to do to get an invite is reach out!

Private Rentals

Need someplace to explore your kinks away from the distractions of home? Want to create some steamy content in a luxe space? Sub Rosa is available for rent to vetted members of the community. Check out our private rentals page for more information!
