Code of Conduct
We expect members of this society to treat each other with respect. Members who do not follow our guidelines will be removed from our online community and will not be permitted to attend any events we run. The exec team reserve the right to enforce these rules under their own discretion.
If you see anyone breaking these rules please contact the exec so we can protect the members of our society. Any comments made to the exec about other members will remain confidential.
- Be good to each other! Treat each other with respect (unless agreed otherwise!)
- Do not make any racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic comments.
- Many people involved with this community may not be open about that fact publicly. Any compromising information about others is to be kept private. This includes membership of the SU society itself, our Facebook group, or Discord server.
- Do not engage in D/s communication with someone without their consent.
- Do not privately communicate with members of the society unless you have spoken with them in person already or have obtained their consent in a public forum. Exec can be contacted if you have any concerns or issues with the society or any of its members.
- Respect peoples' boundaries. In person this means no physical contact or D/s dialogue without consent. This rule extends to all other forms of communication. Please do not spam other members with messages and respect their wishes if they ask not to be contacted. Breaking this rule even outside events will be taken seriously.
Guidelines for play events
We do not run out own play events, but there are several in near the university that some of our members attend. In general you should consider the following while at any event where kink activities are permitted:
- Do not touch anyone or anything (equipment, toys, clothes, etc) without consent.
- Do not interrupt scenes unless there is an immediate threat. If you have concerns or issues about a scene let an event organiser know. Interrupting a scene includes entering the play area, talking to people in the scene, or in some cases maintaining eye contact - it can be very distracting.
- Stay out of a play area unless you intend to use it. If you get hit by an implement someone is playing with, you were probably too close to their scene. Respect the equipment within the play area and clean anything after using it (surface cleaner and kitchen roll will usually be available).
- It is okay to ask other attendees if they want to play; that is why many of them are there. If someone says no to you, respect that. Don't harass lots of people hoping one will play with you. Unless you've planned in advance to play at the event, don't go with the expectation that you will necessarily play.
