Greetings ambrosial adventurers, let’s dive right in to this month’s CSPC newsletter!
We have two parties coming at you next month at two new venues!
On March 17th, our Soft Openings III: Porno Party will bring our sultry parties to the south end of Seattle. Join us at Factory Luxe in SoDo for a party that overwhelms the senses. We will have porn projection! Live sex! Racks for making your impact! Put on a show for the group or just for yourselves. We'll have mattresses front and center as well as behind the sheers. There will be space for socializing and cuddling up by the fireplace to watch the night unfold. Get your tickets in advance here. We'll also be hosting a new member orientation in advance at 7pm.
Two weeks later on March 31st, Soft Openings IV: CHECK UP will bring the rough, heavy play that you'd hate to miss. Come join us in Ballard for an evening of heavy impact, rope bondage, medical play, and more. Bring your partners, bring your friends, and let us check your vitals. We're bringing the exam table and dental chair for all your medical play needs. There will also be racks for impact, a hard point for predicaments, mats for rough body play, and of course space for socializing and hanging out. Bring your own tarps and puppy pads if you’ll need them. Your appointment has been scheduled for March 31st at 8pm. Space is extremely limited for this party. Advanced tickets can be purchased here.
All Soft Openings parties have sold out so far, so don’t wait!
We want to recognize and appreciate everyone who has helped the CSPC relaunch events: our venue hosts who provided beautiful space, our dedicated volunteers who organized, hauled furniture, and ensured a smooth event, and our fabulous guests who came out in droves to completely sell out both Soft Openings parties!
Together we are constantly trying new things and working to improve upon each event that we host. Thanks to the member feedback from our party on January 27, we made the following changes to our party on February 17:
- changed up the floor layout to increase the number of spaces for play
- created a clear pathway around the play space so people were less likely to walk through scenes
- enabled ticket transferability through the member portal
- kept our venue orientations close to the door, so folks didn’t have to hear tours going by during their scene
- spent no time on the mic so we weren’t interrupting scenes with announcements
Every event brings new learning opportunities and room for continued improvement. Our next two events will be at new venues, so we are excited to explore the possibilities of these new spaces and look forward to hearing what you think.
February’s Board Meeting
The CSPC had quite a turn out at this month’s board meeting! Thank you to all who came and shared their questions, comments, and concerns. The biggest topic of conversation was transparency, with lots of thoughtful suggestions and feedback. We hear you! The board is bringing in reinforcements to help our organization do better on that front, and you can read more about that in the next section.
If you’d like to attend the next CSPC board meeting and take a glimpse under the hood, we’d love to have you. Join us at the:
March Board Meeting
March 14th, 7-9pm
Phinney Neighborhood Association
Blue building, room 3
New Board Members
Please join us in welcoming two talented humans onto the CSPC Board!
Sadie is a business consultant who has been involved in the scene since joining The Wet Spot in 2003. She is trained in education and theater. She carried the flame during the Center’s darkness by conducting a regular high protocol tea. Sadie has demonstrated ingenuity in logistics as well as community building and is excited to help the organization grow.
Grace joins the CSPC with an established communications background. She is looking forward to meeting with the community and diving into the organizational process of the CSPC's communication methods to determine ways the CSPC can better serve its members across all platforms. Her favorite flavor of ice cream is strawberry, and she really wishes she owned a hairless cat named Hank.
As the CSPC moves forward, we are exploring how to best serve our community and members. To do this, we’d love to hear about a highlight moment in your experience with the CSPC (past or present). Be as specific as you can in one or two sentences. Take the survey here.

That’s all for this month. We hope to see you at an upcoming event!
Until then, keep it sexy.
