Rough House expands BDSM party line-up at Steamworks!

BDSM parties planned for November, January and March

Rough House, the popular Toronto BDSM dungeon-cum-house party event, is expanding its roster of events with three new party dates to be held at Steamworks Toronto (540 Church Street, Level 2).

Rough House is well established at Goodhandy’s, where the event has been held since 2009. The addition of a second series of Rough House events to be held at Steamworks will provide Rough House players with options of a larger event calendar and the variety of two venues.

Steamworks ( is the Presenting Sponsor of the Rough House events held at both venues.

The inaugural Rough House at Steamworks was held on Sunday, October 9, 2011 and was a huge success, with a waiting list for rooms by 2:30. The event featured BDSM demos held in the gym area, public play and ‘rough housing,’ a special watersports area, and a sleepsack/sounding demo broadcast from Room 122 over the club’s closed circuit TV.

The next Rough House events at Steamworks will take place on November 27, and in the New Year on January 22 and March 11. Each event is on a Sunday and runs from 2pm to 7pm.
