Rough House BDSM dungeon parties return September 23

Six parties planned between September and March

(Toronto) — Organizers of Rough House, the popular gay men’s BDSM dungeon party held in Toronto, today announced event dates for the 2012-2013 season, which will run September through March.

All Rough House events are held on a Sunday afternoon, from 1pm to 5pm. Admission is $10. Rough House will take place: September 23, October 14, November 18, January 27, February 24 and March 31. March 31 will be the first Rough House event held as part of the Eastern Canada LeatherSIR/Leatherboy contest weekend.

Rough House is well established at Goodhandy’s (2nd floor, 120 Church St, Toronto; Richmond & Church), where the event has been held since 2009. As of September 1, Goodhandy’s will be changing its name to Club120 and the bar will undergo some programming changes, however that will not affect holding Rough House at the venue.

Who is Rough House for? Rough House is not a pansexual event, neither by design nor goals. Rough House was created as a BDSM space for gay leather men to foster play, sexual networking and education. Leather dykes show up at each event and are always welcome — but Rough House is decidedly targeted as BDSM space for gay leathermen and other leatherfolk that enjoy a male-focused environment. For more information, consult the About Us section.

What happens at Rough House varies event to event, depending on attendees. Play often includes pumping, saline, watersports, bondage, flogging/single-tail, CBT, percussion play, electro and fisting, and public play. Check out the photo galleries to see examples of the play. A more detailed description of demos and invited special guests for each event is published on the website closer to the event date.

With help from a dedicated roster of volunteers that make the event possible, Rough House is produced by Brandon Matheson and Dan Falkenham.
