Ah, the holidays… that time of year when we gather round the parlour to play games involving bowls of flaming fruits, when naughty children face beatings and kidnappings from Germanic folk demons, and when we all hope we’re the lucky one to find the glass pickle. Sound strange? Well that’s how things were done back in the Victorian Age, and on December 23rd, TES is taking you back to that classic era for our Jolly Bloody Good Holiday Play Party!!!
Costumes are encouraged, but not required, and there will be door prizes for those with the best themed costumes and scenes, so whether your preference is classical Victorian corsets or steam-punk attire, come out with your best dress! Remember, this is the era that gave us rattan canes, crops, the violet ray (better known now as the violet wand), medicine show mesmerization (hypnokink anyone?), and all sorts of kinky vintage medical equipment, including the original vibrators (though please respect the party rules regarding penetration).
Not sure what else to bring to the party? Forget something at home? Looking for that last minute kinky gift? Not to worry, we are thrilled to have Machine Mike Toys and Kacima, who have come together this holiday season as our exclusive party vendor, and will have all you need to stuff your stocking!
And speaking of kinky gifts, come early and join us for our annual Dirty Santa gift exchange. To play, just bring a wrapped gift of up to $25 in value (or alternatively, visit Mike and Kacima). We’ll take turns picking, opening, and stealing each other’s gifts until the smoke clears (but don’t worry, for a small donation to our FounderCare Committee, you can secure immunity for the round! Because giving and receiving isn’t just about Tops and Bottoms!!! Full Rules Here
But that’s not all. Join us for our pre-party munch at the Bread and Butter Café from 7:30-9pm. The munch is a GREAT way to meet people in a low-key, non-kinky setting. You’ll find more info about it here!
8pm-2am at Parthenon Studios

Looking for a playdate? Please check out our official playdate thread on Fetlife, or come to the party and make a wish on our wishboard. Simply write down what you’re looking for on the board and take the corresponding number and stick it somewhere everyone can see. And if you’re interest in something written on the board, simply look for the person wearing that number. And there’s nothing like tossing a little money in the ol’ wishing well to help your wish come true, so please consider donating what you can. All proceeds go to benefit NCSF!
