All participants are expected to abide by the guidelines set forth in order to foster and maintain an environment that is safe for all. It is imperative that everyone in attendance at The West Coat Jungle Gym (WCJG) commits themselves to these guidelines in order to keep the open conference a safe place for all attendees.
For clarification, there are different types of Consent Violations such as:
1. Consent Accidents — These can occur because of error, miscommunication, misunderstanding, or not having all the information
2. Consent Violations — When someone knowingly and willfully chooses to ignore or cross someone’s limits and boundaries
We categorically endorse only Risk Aware Consensual Kink (RACK) at our event and in our community. We denounce unwanted advances, undesired contact, and predatory behavior of any kind. In addition, we espouse the values of Radical Self Care and Vocal Self Advocacy, especially at our event where we do not police any type of interaction.
We strive to make WCJG a safe and nourishing Age play conference while allowing any and all consensual play allowed as describe in the Dungeon rules. If/when a crisis arises on-site, we will have First-Aid and a Crisis Response Team available to attend to the situation. We are committed to this process and will continue to make improvements so that those goals are realized.
Below is the Guideline that we have implemented–it is in the Program Book and will be posted on-site at the conference for reference–and we expect every WCJG participant to adhere to.
All play MUST be consensual. Period. Consent violations will NOT be tolerated at WCJG. The flagrant disregard for boundaries that have been previously and mutually agreed upon by parties, may include expulsion from the event if deemed necessary as a solution to the incident. CLEARLY ARTICULATE AND NEGOTIATE ALL OF YOUR WISHES, LIMITS, AND BOUNDARIES–EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU PLAY, WITH EVERYONE WHO IS INVOLVED IN THE SCENE. This applies to private play scenes, and most especially applies to Open Community Events where physical contact is going to occur.
Safe-words. USE THEM. RESPECT THEM. The WCJG community safe-words to be used for the weekend are: GREEN YELLOW RED
