The Club's VIP lounge will transform for one night into the Turun Baletti Kinky Lounge and we invite everyone partying at the Club to come and experience the world of fetishes and BDSM!
In our Lounge area, traditional kinky party etiquette is enforced and thus photography is not allowed and gossiping about the identities or activities of the attendees afterwards is forbidden. NOTE! Photography is allowed elsewhere in Saaristobaari!
Our area naturally follows safer space protocols and all activities are watched over by our party monitors. They will help you if you encounter problematic situations such as mobile phone photography or unwanted attention. They, like all of our staff, can be recognised from the Turun Baletti orange lanyard and accompanying name tag.
You don’t have to participate in anything, just hanging around and watching others from a polite distance is fine. On the other hand, if you are curious about something, Baletti staff can advise you on our equipment and also give some spanking and bondage experiences.
Our lounge caters for approximately 50 people at a time and our few pieces of dungeon equipment are freely available for your use. There is no dressing area or a darkroom at this event.
Turun Baletti info counter is open all night next to the ticket stand; come chat, ask about membership benefits or maybe support and buy a logo patch to remember the night!
The evening's artists and DJ's will keep the party pumping all the way to 4am!
Turun Baletti was founded in 2001 (officially as Turun BDSM-yhdistys ry). Since then we have brought together people interested in and curious about fetishes, bondage and sadomasochism. We aim to correct myths and misunderstandings about BDSM-culture and hence lower the treshold to approach the world of kink and see it in more positive and communal light.
Based on voluntary work, we annually organize approximately four parties, a dozen munches, few picnics and bar meetups, along with multiple popular members-only events. In our public events membership is not required.
We have lectured at e.g. Väestöliitto, Åbo Akademi and Turku AMK and collaborate with Turun seudun Seta ry and Turku Pride ry. Turun Baletti's own bloc has partaken in the Turku Pride -parade for many years and in 2018-2019 we have also been one of the Turku Pride -event sponsors.
