Frequently asked questions
Will I have to do anything?
Surely not! You’ll only do what you like and prefer, in the utmost respect for everyone. Yet we suggest you to come with some ideas about what you’d like to do, so you won’t waste your time playing wallpaper.
Will I be photographed or recorded?
Absolutely not. Nobody has any reason to, and the law is very clear about your privacy rights. If you like showing off, there is a closed photoset where you can have your portrait taken by a professional photographer. You can also ask the staff to take your picture whenever you prefer, so you’ll have a souvenir of the event.
If I come alone, will I find a partner?
This is up to you. If you’ll be well-mannered and interesting, the chances are more than enough…
If I come as a single female, will I be besieged by single guys?
The organization does its best to avoid having too many single males in, and the ambiance is usually very respectful. If you say “no” it’s no… and those who can’t understand will be booted out.
Will I find enough mistresses/gays/queers/groups/slaves (or any other category you are into)?
This depends on the guests themselves. Anyone into domination and submission eroticism comes to Sadistique… except those who stay home waiting for others to go ahead and build a group! The best way to be sure of meeting the kind of persons you like the best is to invite them to come along to the party.
I never tried BDSM. How can I start?
Here! At the party you’ll find many persons who’ll be glad to help you and answer your questions. In the meantime, if you want to learn something you can have a look at Ayzad‘s website.
Is this a swingers’ event?
No. Although you are free to set up group games or swap your partner, Sadistique is a chance to play BDSM. For “vanilla” sex there are so many other occasions…
So it’s no sex at all, then?
Let’s put it this way: you can also have sex, but within a BDSM play and in any case respecting other guests, who’ll probably want to use the place to do other things. If you really have the irresistible urge to fuck, the club provides a great private area just for this purpose.
Are there prostitutes there?
The club does not tolerate prostitution. Anyone practicing it during the party will be booted out permanently.
So what are those prodommes doing among the guests?
The very same things everyone else does. They visit Sadistique to enjoy BDSM play and meet friends old and new. Every guest is treated the same, and is required to respect the same rules.
Will I find drugs inside?
Absolutely not. Besides them being illegal, to keep one’s mind clear is essential to play good BDSM.
Why are you holding it on a Sunday afternoon?
In part this is because the club hosts different events at other times; in part because this makes it possible for the guests to participate even if they come from afar, and they have to be at work early on the morning after.
Why did you raise your entry costs after 15 years?
Reflect for a moment on what you just asked. The main reason, however, was to allow the club hosting us to recoup a little more easily the huge investment required to install the air purification machinery that made it the first space in Europe to guarantee absolutely virus- and pathogens-free air.
Why is the membership card more expensive than elsewhere?
The slightly higher cost allows the club to offer free entry to female guests, free cloakroom service, and to keep the bar prices lower than average, including free water and coffee, differently from other clubs.
Also, remember that you can use any ARCO card, even if you got it from a different circle or club.
