  • Useful suggestions for how to attend solo, with friends, and with a lover/partner

  • How to navigate consent culture and play party etiquette so you feel empowered and safe

Play parties can feel intimidating, but with they can also be explorative, connective, and FUN! With these tips, anecdotes, and exercises, you'll be sure to rock it!
