Code of Conduct

We expect you to conduct yourself in accordance with these three very simple principles:

Take Responsibility for Yourself

At Boundless we expect you to think about what you need, plan for your needs, and take care of yourself. This environment is, by design, challenging. We expect you to take that into consideration when planning your self-care.

We expect you to take responsibility for your level of intoxication. We expect you to make sure you are never too intoxicated to behave responsibly toward the community and to engage in self-care.

Only you can fully understand what your comfort levels are. We ask you to come to our event as prepared as you can be for successful negotiation and self-care.

That said, if you need help please reach out to those who can support you – and to us.

Take Responsibility for Your Behavior Toward Others

You are not required to add to anyone’s experience, and no one is required to add to yours. However, we expect that you treat everyone you meet with kindness and consideration.

As a part of our community we expect you to promote anti-racism and gender equality. We expect you to consider social power dynamics when interacting with other community members.

You must adhere to our negotiation guidelines and consent policies for all BDSM and sexual activities that take place at our event. We expect you to carefully consider the level of intoxication of your potential play partners. We expect you to ask potential play partners about their current mental state and to err on the side of caution before engaging in play.

Take Responsibility for the Venue

There are very few places that allow us to do what we do. It’s a privilege to use this space and it is on us to take care of it. We are guests and we must treat the hosts and venue with regard; our actions will impact future use at this unique location.

If something doesn’t seem right, you are encouraged and empowered to speak up or report that behavior to the organizers or event volunteers.

The code of conduct is a shared belief. We will do whatever is necessary to keep our event a healthy environment for all attendees. The organizers may remove those who are unable to adhere to these agreements.

We appreciate your desire to foster an environment based on taking responsibility for yourself, others, and the venue.
