  • Absolutely no sexual acts will be tolerated at the mosh. This includes masturbation, exposing yourself, unwanted groping, or any penetrative acts.

    • Consent must be respected at all times. If a fellow mosher indicates they do not wish to engage with you, you must respect that and give them their space.
    • A mosh can contain lots of physical contact or suggestive contact. For safety and consent reasons, genitals must be covered while moshing.
    • This space is provided to help all in attendance to explore and enjoy the Human Pet scene. Those who share our space need to be aware that there may be blatant displays of kink and sexuality as well as physical contact. If this kind of open environment is of concern, we would recommend that you not participate in the main mosh.
    • If you have concerns about consent or possible violations afer you have indicated to a fellow mosher that you do not wish to engage, please contact any mosh guard.
    • We will provide a non physical mosh space outside of the main room of the mosh.  This space is for those that request no physical contact, but can play in headspace with other pups/pets using balls, toys and pup/pet voices.
