“Reading Fetish Social” is a Kink & Fetish SFW 18+ social event. It aims to promote networking and provide a safe space and networking for kinksters and fetishists, especially those in the LGBTQIA+ community. This is a trial event for future socials; if we gain enough interest and attendance, we will run more socials.

The event runs for 6 hours from 12-6 PM at the Bla Bla in Reading, and no pre-booking required first come, first serve.

Where

This is event will be in Reading at The Bla Bla. The venue is a grade listed building and has single-step access, with a ramp available needed (please get in touch with us if needed). Unfortunately, due to the age of the building does not have gender-neutral or accessible toilets, but people are welcome to use the toilet, which they feel affirming.

Please read our code of conduct (COC) before joining the event (https://animagi.co.uk/coc/). As stated in the COC, this event will be 18+ and the dress code is minimum swimwear coverage (no nudity will be allowed). This includes the covering of female-presenting nipples, buttocks, and intimate parts (genitals), including plug tails. There is no set dress code as long as it follows the public decency and rules stated above; gear is advised but is not necessary.

When in conversation, ensure everyone is consenting to a conversation. If you are uncomfortable with a discussion state and make the person/people aware, let an admin know if there is an issue. We emphasise that this is a safe, sex-positive space, therefore conversations around sexual intercourse, consensual BDSM and interactions of an intimate nature maybe be spoken about.

Conversations around illegal activities (excluding sex work) could result in a permanent ban.

Following our COC, we enforce that this social aims to create a safe space; ANIMAGI CIC will not act on complaints regarding:
• “Reverse”-isms, including “reverse racism,” “reverse sexism,” and “cisphobia.”
• Communication of boundaries, such as “leave me alone,” “go away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you.”
• Communicating in a “tone” you do not find congenial.
• Criticism of offensive racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behaviour or assumptions.
