We do have rules
The basic tenents of BDSM community etiquette apply at MI Ropes, however we have additional rules in place for our guests’ safety. These rules are non-negotiable. Violation of any of these rules could result in your removal from MI Ropes. When in doubt, just don’t do it or ask a DM or the organizers.
You must be at least 18 years old to attend. You must prove your age with valid ID at check in.
MI Ropes is a private event. Event organizers reserve the right to refuse attendance to anyone for the protection of the group and its members.
Vanilla attire and conduct is required outside MI Ropes venue, as our venue is a public one. Inside the venue doors, fetish wear is encouraged. Nudity is permitted.
Cameras and recording devices are not permitted. The organizers reserve the right to review your recent photos in the event of a complaint. If you wish to have a picture taken of your scene or handy work, please speak with a DM. A photo can be taken by a DM with your phone to ensure that no one is photographed without consent. Violating this policy will not be tolerated. We understand that people want to memorialize their time, but discretion and privacy will not be compromised.
No alcohol or drug use is permitted. If you appear intoxicated, you will be removed or not be admitted.
No professional BDSM activity (i.e. pro-domming) where money is traded for services is permitted within MI Ropes.
No illegal activity is permitted at MI Ropes, including but not limited to solicitation for sex, pandering, prostitution, illegal drug use, illegal sex acts, or any other illegal activities.
Participation at MI Ropes is 100% voluntary and consensual between all parties. You are not required to play or scene at MI Ropes.
Attendees are responsible for negotiating their own scenes and play time while at MI Ropes. We encourage this negotiation to happen before attendance. Participants in scenes engage in play at their own risk. Any participant may end a scene at any time for any reason.
No means No. No doesn't mean ask again or pester. If you are not invited to touch, talk, taste, etc. then don’t do it. Non-consensual touching is strictly prohibited and will be addressed immediately.
MI Ropes has some play furniture available for use. However, each participant is encouraged to bring their own implements and equipment. You will be responsible for any damage to the venue.
Each participant who brings supplies and implements is responsible for their own equipment. Each participant uses any equipment at their own risk, and is encouraged to inspect and test it out for their own safety.
MI Ropes is not responsible for lost, stolen or damage items. Don’t touch other people’s belongings without consent.
Watersports, scat, gun play, vomit play and consensual non consent are prohibited. If you are using sharper implements such as knives, please keep your knives sheathed and put away until your scene.
After play, please clean up your play area. Please use the disinfectant that will be provided to clean up your play area.
If you are watching, please be mindful and respectful of the scenes going on around you. Please maintain a lower noise level and do not interrupt a scene. Aftercare is part of a scene. If you have a concern about a scene, please speak with a DM.
Do not leave your bottom unattended during a scene. If you must step away, please notify the DM and appoint a person to watch over your bottom.
We encourage you to negotiate your own safe word prior to a scene. If you don’t have one, or feel the need for additional help, MI Ropes’s house safe word is “Red”. Saying “Red” will notify a DM to come to your play area to check in. Play will not resume until a DM determines it is safe.
Absolutely no drama. If you have a problem with someone, keep it to yourself, or stay at home, please. We have zero tolerance for drama, so, again, if you have a problem with someone and feel the need to involve others, please stay home. However, feel free to discreetly bring legitimate and verifiable safety concerns to MI Ropes DM’s or organizers.
It is a violation of state law (MCL 750.411h) to continue to approach, confront, or contact a person "in disregard of that individual's expressed desire that the contact be avoided or discontinued." If a person requests to be left alone, they have a right to be.
Unfortunately, we cannot allow penetration play at MI Ropes due to legal concerns. We apologize for any inconvenience.
