We fill the GAP between other lifestyle organizations in Arizona, but since people love acronyms we decided that it could stand for Groups At Play, because we are. That being said, we started as just “The GAP”.
Absolutely NOT! You are NEVER expected to do anything you aren’t 100% comfortable with and consent to.
Unfortunately not. We aren’t a dating service. That being said, if you’re looking for a play partner just start introducing yourself to other members. Don’t be shy. You can always ask them to play, just respect it if they say “no”.
For any public events, unfortunately not. Street legal attire is required at all times. At private events and play parties, it’s up to the host, but almost all the time the answer is “Yes! Please get naked!” Just be courteous and bring a towel to sit on.
In case you aren’t familiar with the term, “Edge Play”, it is a subjective term that refers to any activity that may be considered dangerous or that may challenge societal norms in an uncomfortable way. Blood play, breath play, fire play, race play, age play, branding… Many different activities can be considered edge play.
Edge play is allowed at play parties as long as the host is ok with it happening. Remember, play parties are hosted at members’ houses and we need to respect their space. If you are going to enter into a scene that could be considered “edgy”, please talk with a DM first and let them know exactly what you’re planning in your scene. This will help make sure everything you’re planning is acceptable, and help keep your scene from being interrupted.
While most of the people at these events are part of our group, if you want to be extra sure, look for someone wearing a lanyard. Those people are sure to be one of us.
Yes! Not only is it OK, it is recommended. Come to a party, get your voyeur on, and learn about what might interest you in the future.
