Etiquette/ Play Suggestions

CAMERA POLICY: Absolutely no private cameras are allowed at Diabolique Ball, including cellphone cameras. Event photographers (with badges) will ask permission of guests (but not performers) before taking any pictures. In order to ensure the privacy of the adults playing at Diabolique, there are never exceptions made to this rule. Your equipment will be confiscated!


Find a date. The most sure-fire method for arranging play is to hook up in advance with compatible players. Read personal ads, or better yet, place one of your own asking for a date to the Ball, another couple to hang out with, or whatever it is that you would like. NEGOTIATE the scene you want with a potential play-mate. Clear communication is essential to the enjoyment of a play scene. If you have ideas about what you like and what you don’t, be sure to communicate those preferences. Check out Fetlife for local groups and folks who have RSVPd for the event and may be looking for company!

USE THE SAFEWORD: Remember to establish a code signal or safeword to end the activity in the event of a physical or psychological emergency. The safeword at Diablique is “safeword.” Also inform your play partner of medical/psychiatric limitations before you start playing.

Functional SOBRIETY is required for play: Do not risk your safety by playing with someone who is inebriated or by playing if you are inebriated. Our monitors will have you flagged if you are behaving in a reckless manner. USE RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY when playing and observing.

  1. Will there be a meet and greet the night before like there was last time? That made the ball so much more fun!

    If not, where do you suggest finding or placing an ad to find others who are attending? Thanks so much.

  2. Does this mean that we cannot bring our phones to the event even if we do not use the camera? I certainly hope not.

  3. fire play allowed?

      Yes. Please check in with a dungeon monitor before doing so, as there are some areas that are better suited to it than others.
