“A lot of people call it a sex club. And honestly, I hate that,” says Thorns. “Because if you look at our calendar, pretty much 26 out of 30 days of the month are full of education.” Voodoo is home to arts events, discussion groups, educational courses and member parties. It offers classes for a variety of different lifestyles (dominant, submissive, 24/7 master-slave, age regression) as well as classes that discuss relationship dynamics, communication, negotiation, relationship development and, most importantly, establishing enthusiastic informed consent. There’s also a library and a retail area, which supports local artists and craftspeople. The onboarding process consists of a new member orientation, where they cover vetting partners, setting clear boundaries and establishing consent. At Voodoo, there is a zero-tolerance policy for consent violations.”
