BDSM Dungeon Basics: Play By the Rules

Dungeon Dominatrix

Have you been to a BDSM dungeon for play and experimentation? Or is this adventure only something you dream about?

What is a BDSM Dungeon?

A BDSM dungeon describes any space that is used for “scene” activities. Dungeons are often private or built in residential homes but can also be housed in commercial spaces. Some are open to the public, others are members only.

You can see some of our favourite BDSM dungeons from around the world in our BDSM Vacation Guide.

A professional dominatrix often runs or maintains a dungeon that is rented out for couples and groups looking to explore BDSM activities. Depending on space and investment, a dungeon may be very no frills or it may be furnished with elaborate designs and decorations as well as be equipped with attachments and furnishings such as shackles, racks, cages, spanking benches, and medical tables.

Sophisticated dungeons are usually rented out to BDSM clubs and organizations that appoint DMs (dungeon monitors) to ensure safe and responsible play, for experienced and new players alike.

Every dungeon has rules. Before entering, participants must accept these rules. If they are broken, the participant is ejected without negotiation and may be blacklisted from future events.

BDSM Dungeon Rules

These are some dungeon rules that I’ve encountered at different BDSM events.

  • Event personnel must be permitted to search personal belongings before entering
  • No sex allowed (any kind)
  • No use of sex toys allowed
  • Organizers and hosts of event are not responsible for loss, damage, or stolen items
  • Use of the dungeon and its equipment is at your own risk
  • DM warnings and instructions must be followed
  • DMs have the right to refuse you entry to play spaces and can ask you to leave
  • DMs have the right to stop unsafe play
  • Safewords must be respected (you will be escorted off premises otherwise)
  • Safewords: Green (everything is okay), Yellow (I need a minute/check in with me), Red (Stop/untie me/the scene is over)
  • Do not interrupt a scene (bring concerns to the DM)
  • Do not touch others’ property without permission
  • Clean equipment with sanitizers after use
