Rules & Policies
Please review our rules and cancellation policies carefully. Violation of these rules can result in revocation of membership and even a lifetime ban from Studio Sanctuary.
1. Studio Sanctuary is a professional BDSM facility and does not offer sexual activity of any kind. This includes oral sex, intercourse, or other types of sexual contact. We do not engage in illegal activity of any sort. BDSM is legal in Columbus, and we want it to stay that way. Again, we are not a brothel, escort agency, or prostitution house. Please seek those desires elsewhere.
2. We do not share, disclose, rent, or sell your personal information with any third parties. Your personal information, including your contact information, is kept strictly confidential and can only be accessed by staff members. Each staff member is bound by a non-disclosure agreement, and we only employ those who find such abuse of trust as ethically wrong. We will not contact you unless given express permission to do so, and only using your preferred methods. If inquired of, we will not disclose any details about you (not even that we know who you are).
3. Clients and attendees are to treat all staff members and associates with the utmost respect. This includes in-person, phone, and email contact. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. This includes defamatory language, unacceptable physical contact, rudeness, and soliciting for personal and/or contact information.
4. We do not accept walk-in appointments. Do not visit Studio Sanctuary unless you have a specified appointment time or are attending an event. This includes loitering and/or visiting to “chat” or “be of service.” Just as we value your time, we ask that you value ours by arriving at your appointed time as well as departing at the end of your appointment.
5. Arrive clean and well-dressed. Do not make yourself noticeable — this includes TVs arriving in full drag. Please look presentable and inconspicuous. If you are bringing clothing or toys, make sure they are placed in discreet bags or suitcases.
6. We have a zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol for our staff members and will not permit sessions to occur for clients who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Any evidence of intoxication will forfeit your session.
7. Sessions tributes will be collected by the staff member before the session begins. Please have the correct amount waiting or the credit card that you wish to use. You are welcome to tip any of the staff members, bring gifts, or send fan mail with tokens.
8. We do not haggle over tribute prices and we do not issue refunds for the cancellation of prepaid sessions.
9. Do not bring guests to Studio Sanctuary without a corresponding appointment (this includes curious friends, girlfriends, or spouses). We offer couples sessions and rentals to individuals and groups, but we are not open for tours and questions from the general public.
10. Studio Sanctuary is not responsible for any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained while participating in a BDSM activity, or while in, on or upon the premises where the activity is being conducted, regardless of the circumstances. We attempt to fully educate and train our staff members, but you must be fully aware of the risks and hazards involved with any BDSM activity. You assume this risk upon yourself. We require a waiver to be signed for certain dangerous BDSM activities. We will only permit a staff member to conduct these sessions if they have had the appropriate training, but risks do exist. This waiver is necessary for these sessions to occur: piercing, suspension, very heavy corporal, some medical play, branding/fireplay, heavy CBT or ballbusting, asphyxiation, etc.
11. You will respect the confidentiality and identity of staff members, attendees, guests, and any one else associated with Studio Sanctuary. This includes individuals seen outside of the facility, their families, occupations, privacy, and involvement with other activities.
Life and work emergencies are an unavoidable part of life, and we understand. However, because our staff members’ time is valuable, we have a cancellation policy in effect. You must cancel via phone, as emails can be substantially delayed or lost due to circumstances completely beyond your control or ours. A cancellation penalty is the below percentage of the appointment’s tribute.
|No Show||100% Cancellation Penalty|
|Less than 4 hours in advance||50% Cancellation Penalty|
|Less than 24 hours in advance||25% Cancellation Penalty|
|More than 24 hours in advance||No Cancellation Penalty|
No-shows with outstanding penalties will be transferred to a collection agency, and will be blacklisted from the facility. Don’t make that mistake!
