The Ignite party series is designed to be a welcoming place for newcomers in addition to experienced players. As always, our parties emphasize socializing and meeting new people in addition to the hot scenes going on. It’s all about the community coming together and having a great time, so everyone of all roles, experience level, orientations, and gender identity are always welcomed at SoJ events. Public parties are all about being able to live out your fantasies safely using the venue’s equipment for play and social spaces to meet wonderful people. This is a place where you can ask questions of the party host, ambassadors, dungeon monitors, and more experienced players. Just please just don’t interrupt anyone while they are playing! 

This party isn’t just open to newcomers. It is open to anyone looking for a fun and connective time with other folx in the Bay Area Kink Community. (Please note: This party IS NOT intended to be a place to cruise for new players. Aggressive cruising will not be tolerated.
