Fifty Shades of Shut the Fuck Up

Mistress Viola Parker, with head DM Maeve McBride, present their monthly kinky play party celebrating all things FemDom! Don’t miss this epic social event for femdoms, femme tops, and the individuals who serve and worship them.

This month’s theme is PRIDE WAS A RIOT, with special guest Mx. Pucks A’Plenty! Celebrating the Riot that is Pride (now in July in Portland) is more important than ever as LGBTGIA rights are continually being threatened! Show up in your rainbow riot gear, protest shirts, or paint yourself with rainbows, trans flags…show your PRIDE in whatever way is best for YOU. As always, the themes for STFU are not mandatory. But the dress code is! Find more information on the dress code and party details on the Sanctuary event page or on Fetlife.

COVID Safety

Masks are optional for events at Sub Rosa (this is subject to change depending on COVID rates).
We are moving away from requiring vaccination card checks at our events at Sub Rosa. Some visiting educators ask vaccination checks, so this will depend on the class. This policy is subject to change.

Accessibility

Unfortunately, our space is located in an old industrial building that poses a challenge to accessibility. There are stairs to the front door and a flight of stairs up to our unit, there is no passenger elevator. We apologize for this issue and recognize that the impact on people with disabilities is felt deeply in our community. We are making considered efforts to improve this issue, offer virtual classes, and ensure that events outside of our space are always planned in accessible venues. If there are other accommodations we can make please reach out. Events & classes can be ASL interpreted upon request. Please request interpretation at least 48 hours in advance in the notes section of your order and email us at info@subrosapdx.com.

Sub Rosa offers reduced-rate tickets to each of our classes for black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) first and foremost and those experiencing financial hardship or limited income as well. Please reach out to info@subrosapdx.com to request these ticket order codes.
