Sin - Celebrating Forbidden Delights!

You are cordially invited to SIN with us at Black Thorn!

Sin - the very word conjures up images of dark thoughts, dirty deeds and forbidden pleasures. Come celebrate with us again as we get ready to Sin once more! The backdrop to SIN is Black Thorn and Sacred Muse in Oakland, two high quality, well-appointed play-spaces featuring social areas, multiple playstations and showers.

    Consent is Paramount

    Part of our responsibility in fostering a consent culture is to provide some guidance to help prevent consent incidents from happening at our events.

    1. Informed and voluntary consent is always required before play. The entire scope of any scene, including what parts of the body there may be contact with and the nature of such contact, should be negotiated prior to beginning any actual play.
    2. People at our events come from different backgrounds and have vastly different life experiences. All attendees may expect to be treated by event staff and other attendees with respect irrespective of age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, body type, disability, etc.
    3. People can expect that their persons and property shall not be touched without prior permission.
    4. Attendees should not be addressed as “Mistress”, “Sir”, “slut”, “slave”, etc. or any potentially offensive terms or violating words unless they have given prior permission.
    5. Each participant in a scene is responsible for making sure that everyone involved in the scene has the mental and emotional ability to give informed and voluntary consent for the scene. We consider people who are under the influence of substances, in subspace or otherwise not in a clear state of mind to be incapable of giving informed and voluntary consent.
    6. While playing, players may not do anything that was not already explicitly agreed to.
    7. Any participant in a scene has the right to withdraw consent at any time by means of an agreed-upon safeword, a non-verbal safe-sign or using the house safeword “SAFEWORD”. Once consent is withdrawn, all activity in the scene must stop.

    Any consent concerns can be confidentially given to the hosts at the event, on Fetlife @-Diablo- or @Amande, or by email at
