Consent & Safe(r) Space Policy
Consent is a cornerstone to ALL sexual activities.
Most practitioners in a variety of alternative lifestyle practices subscribe to SSC (safe, sane, consensual), RACK (risk aware consensual Kink) or PRICK (personal responsibility informed consensual kink). Consent, in the context of all lifestyles and activities,means that everyone involved is an adult who understands what they are agreeing to, is mentally able to appreciate the consequences of the activity or lifestyle they are agreeing to AND they ACTIVELY agree. Consent means that there are ways to communicate that you need the activity to stop (such as safe words). In order for your consent to be valid you must be able to remove consent.
This includes conversations of a sexual nature, touching, kissing, groping, propositioning, and repeated unwanted invitations to play.
If, while attending an event at Aurora Social Club, someone violates your consent during play by ignoring a clearly stated limit, ignoring a safe word during play, or by repeatedly touching you or demanding play after you have assertively refused/rebuffed them, talk to any of our staff or one of the managers.
If this violation happens outside an event you have options including (But not limited to) the following: You can try to talk to the person about this. (Recommended if the violation was a minor one) You can speak to the police. (Recommended for sexual assault, physical assault and other criminal behavior) You can simply be certain to not play with this person again.Many police and therapists are KINK AWARE. Do not be afraid to use these services if you have need.
It is our policy to address oppressive language as follows:
We remind people upon entry to the facility that bigotry, aggression and hateful speech and/or behaviors are not welcome here.
If someone uses oppressive language, we gently but firmly state that this type of language is not welcome in the facility, and if necessary explain why.
If the use of oppressive language continues, we let the person know that they need to leave the facility.
If someone returns, and again insists on using oppressive language, we will then revoke membership and insist on them leaving the space.
It is our policy to address aggressive behaviors as follows:
Upon entry to our facility or attendance at our events, nudity or sexual discussions may be present, we remind attendees what our consent policy is (Affirmative, enthusiastic, freely given, revocable, specific, informed and PRIOR to any touch).
If an individual does not stop asking for (sex, cuddles, hugs, dirty talk, play etc) after they are declined, we will one time, firmly explain the rules. If they continue, membership will be immediately and permanently revoked.
If an individual touches someone in a sexual way without their explicit, prior, enthusiastic consent, membership will be immediately and permanently revoked.
No one has the right to violate your clearly stated boundaries or your consent.
All Aurora Club spaces and events are SAFE(R) SPACES, meaning we have zero tolerance for discrimination, prejudicial behavior, bullying, harassment or any other disruptive or negative behaviors. We have strict rules against any hateful speech or actions. Those who cannot abide by these rules will removed from our facilities or events.
To be VERY clear:
At Aurora we not only welcome persons of all sexualities, races, body types, genders, abilities, religions and cultures (and any other label you might wonder about), we will uphold the right of all members to be treated with dignity, respect and decency.
Anyone who wishes to demonstrate aggressive or hateful behaviors will removed from the premises and not welcome back. Our staff is trained to handle all complaints regarding aggression and discrimination. PLEASE, if you have any problems with any staff or member, notify us at your earliest convenience
