Rough House returns September 10, 2017

Rough House BDSM dungeon parties start again September 10, 2017
2017-2018 season will have eight parties between September and April

(Toronto) — The next season of Rough House, the popular gay men’s BDSM dungeon party held in Toronto, will kick-off Sunday, September 10 and is shaping up to be the biggest season yet.

Organizers have expanded the schedule to eight dungeon parties to be held between September and April. New this year is an early December dungeon party.

Rough House is held at Club120 (2nd floor, 120 Church St, Toronto; just south of Church & Richmond), located above the 120Diner.

All Rough House events at Club120 are held on a Sunday afternoon, from 1pm to 5pm. Admission is $15, with a free coat/clothes check.

Rough House at Club120 will take place:

The popular Rough House Leather Market will be held September 10 and January 21, 2018. Regular admission applies.

Rough House is not a pansexual event, neither by design nor goals. Rough House was created as a BDSM space for gay leather men (including trans men) to foster play, sexual networking and education. That said, it’s nuance: a few leather dykes comfortable in gay male-focused sex spaces often show up at each event and are always welcome — knowing that 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. A few Rough House regulars do planned demos and spontaneous scenes.

Since it’s beginnings in 2009, the Rough House dungeon party has been held at Club120 (starting in the days of Goodhandy’s). One early incarnation of Rough House was held in 2005 at the Black Eagle. Rough House has also hosted parties several parties at Steamworks Baths.
