Oh hey, I’m Becky. I’m not conventional (who is?). I have 2 partners, 2 kids, and 6 chickens. Throughout my life I’ve performed normal for so long. I’ve put on the show; I’ve pretended that all I wanted was a house in the suburbs, to having matching pajamas in Christmas pictures, and to make my Facebook profile look good. And then I stopped trying. I walked into the Sanctuary Center the first time before it was open. I, like so many others, were called on to volunteer. The spot was new, the energy was high, the excitement was tangible. My kids and I painted the walls in the classroom together. We ate pizza, we knocked down walls. For one of the first times, we were in a space where we could be authentic. I spent the day with my family there enjoying the comradery of a bunch of folks who just needed a place to feel safe and connected. There finally wasn’t a performance. It’s like my whole body exhaled. Since then, I’ve become a part of The Sanctuary Center and am working here full time. Every day I spend here has been a cathartic exercise in embracing the real me. When I greet people now, the smile isn’t fake. When people ask how I like my job, I’m honest when I say I love it. I want to go to work now. One of the reasons I believe so much in this place is the power of community. On the walls, one of our norms states, “We know healing happens in relationships and community, not in isolation.” I read that now every day when I walk in and I sit down to make this place amazing. I believe in this place, and I want you to too. So, random internet reader, I invite you to follow our journey here at the Center. I want you to watch how we’re ever expanding into our community, growing and healing together. I want you to see how we’re giving people who used to have to pretend to be happy, a place to actually laugh and smile. I want you to check out our resources. I want you to drop in and share a cup of tea with me. I want you to learn something new. I want you to see our journey. After all, you’re a part of this too.

Dr. Harmony’s Basic Dungeon EtiquetteMany of the rules that involve nudity and sex are dependent on the country, state, and county laws. If you are a D-type, it is your responsibility to lead by the example of being polite in all situations. Just because you are a D-type does not make all s-types your s-type. Please respect others’ protocols. ● Do not make assumptions about the availability of someone to play or interact with. Although there are general rules of etiquette, remember the strictness of protocol is different from D/s to D/s, thus, it is important to error on the side of High Protocol. ● Do not touch, speak, or interact with anyone or their property without direct permission. ● Please assume all s-types are under the protection of a D-type and ask permission from their D-type prior to interacting with the submissive. ● Treat everyone with respect no matter the identity they hold. Do not assume that as a D-type, this identity supersedes any protocols they have negotiated with their owner. ● In general conversation a sub, from time to time, may forget to use the honorific Sir/Ma’am and may even make another minor mistakes. If the sub is not yours, you are permitted at worst to frown to indicate you are a strict D-type. You are NOT permitted
to take to task a sub for the omission unless you have direct permission from their owner. ● When addressing s-types in conversation there are several different scenarios, some of which are indicated here: ● The s-type is on a leash or standing behind their D-type. In this case it is rude to even acknowledge the presence of the s-type and is up to their D-type to initiate any conversation with the s-type, or not as the D-type pleases. ● The s-type is beside or slightly between you and the D-type. Approach as if the s-type was just a chair, around the s-type. ● Always address the D-type first and allow the D-type to introduce you to their s- type, or not as the D-type pleases. ● If you know the s-type and you have had several previous conversations with this s-type before, even then it is rude to talk to the s-type before proper greetings are given to the D-type. Then it is always best to ask of the D-type how is their s-type doing. ● The s-type is alone and appearing not to be with someone. Please introduce yourself and ask the s-type if they are free to talk to you. DO NOT be offended if the s-type indicates or says no. Many s-types are owned and may be under orders not to talk to strangers. ● If for any reason you are unsure of the type of person you are talking to it is considered polite to ask. ● As an s-type, unsure of the type of person asking you this question, the polite answer is “I belong to Sir/Mistress X, please ask his/her permission to speak to me.”
● Negotiate ALL scenes. ● Respect ALL limits. ● DO NOT under any circumstances interrupt a scene or involve yourself in a scene without an invitation from the D-type. ● Either have a negotiated safe word or agree upon the use of the universal color codes of Green, Yellow, and Red. ● Respect the play area and use universal procedures for wet play. ● Please disinfect and clean any equipment used. ● Please clean up your play area following your scene. ● Limit the use of loud noises in the play area. ● Limit play to designated areas. ● Never walk away from an active scene when an s-type is bound in any way.
