**What Is A Play Party?**
A social event in which people engage in BDSM activities. There is customized equipment for these activities. There is an area for refreshments and socializing, a changing area into more appropriate attire (such as fetish wear/club wear), and an area for play and rest. Dungeon Monitors (DM’s) enforce party rules such as RACK & PRICK. It is not mandatory to participate. It is contrary to BDSM etiquette to touch anyone or their toys without permission or to interrupt a scene in any way.

You are encouraged to bring a toy bag if you have one.

Your friends will certainly appreciate any food dish for the potluck dinner that you bring as well!
**How Do I Dress? **
Be neat and clean. Good hygiene is always appreciated and necessary for the safety and well-being of others in the community.
**Will I Be Expected or Made To Participate?**
No. You are welcome to simply observe. You are not expected to do anything you do not want to do. You will not be coerced or expected to participate in any activity that you do not choose to be involved in. Mutual adult consent is the basis for all OPE interactions. If you feel someone is not respecting your decision or you are feeling pressured, contact an OPE Board Member who will address it immediately. Our hope is that you learn, grow, and make new friends but we do expect you to have fun!
**What Is A House Collar?**
A House Collar is a collar symbolizing you are “protected” and “hands off” when you come alone or are new to an OPE event. This applies to whether you identify as a Dominant/top or submissive/bottom. The collar is a symbol that you are not to be approached for play unless it is first discussed with an OPE Board Member on duty. OPE staff will talk with you and make sure you wish to participate. It is our hope that this will help new attendees feel safer and more comfortable in this new environment. House Collar Policy
