COVID-19 Precautions

BDSM is all about informed, consensual, risk-aware, + safer play, so kinksters are among the best prepared for a pandemic! Let’s do our best to get through it together.

***12/22/21*** I will once again be implementing pandemic safety protocols because of the COVID-19 surge in New York City attributable to the Omicron variant. As someone with a Master’s in the social sciences who also does work in the area of public health, I take the risks of the ongoing pandemic seriously and do my best to stay up-to-date on current research. While the vaccines have been shown to drastically reduce severity of the illness, the lingering effects of ‘long COVID’ are still a significant risk, and the vulnerability of small children and people with certain pre-existing conditions who cannot be vaccinated remains the same.  For the sake of my health, your health, and public health, I’m taking the following steps to mitigate risks:

  • I am 3x Pfizer-vaccinated and will only see those who have also received at least 2 vaccine doses, with the last being in the prior 6 months
  • I’m reinstating a 1.5-hour minimum so I can see fewer people and will be limiting my number of appointments each week. Longer sessions will be prioritized.
  • I will be limiting my other socialization between appointments to safer situations: one-on-one, outdoors, and/or with those vaccinated + masked. I ask that you do the same.
  • If you are a front-line healthcare worker: I deeply appreciate what you do, but I’m asking that we limit our contact to the virtual realm for the duration of the pandemic. You can read about my virtual options here.
  • I will not be sessioning out of any commercial spaces, because of their higher foot traffic.
  • My cleaning protocols remain the same: everything that’s touched by one of us gets sterilized. Metal and silicone are boiled, cloth is laundered, all other surfaces are wiped down with 97% isopropyl alcohol or, when possible, Cavicide.
  • My cancellation policy is suspended. There will be no penalty for day-of cancellations due to exposure or illness. If you made a deposit, I will hold it for a future date.
  • Likewise, please be understanding if I have to cancel last-minute due to exposure or illness.
  • I won’t be engaging in play with any fluids, and I ask that if you want to use a gag or mask, you bring your own.
  • We will both wash our hands with soap for 20 seconds before the session starts and after it ends.

I appreciate your understanding and cooperation in staying safer during uncertain times!
