SAFEGUARDING IS PARAMOUNT AND AT THE CORE OF EVERYTHING WE DO.
THE SAFEGUARDING TEAM
Klub Verboten is the only entity of its kind that has achieved accreditation with the Good Night Out Campaign for more than four years in a row. Further to that, our team gets regularly trained by Safer Sounds Partnerships, WAVE and Verboten's extensive internal sessions.
The Verboten Safeguarding Team is there to protect you all from unwanted tentacles, consent dickheads, and enforce all our Klub Rules. You can spot them by their BLUE BERET HATS and VERBOTEN LOGO HARNESSES.
Our rules are displayed throughout the venue. Please approach us immediately if you feel anyone attempts to breach these or if anything feels not 100% right. We will always have your back.
By doing so, you support Klub Verboten’s mission in preventive safeguarding for the cummunity.
A ticket alone does not entitle anyone to enter the event. Klub Verboten is a fetish & BDSM cummunity & members club. A place for modern human interaction. If you do not fully understand why comprehending and adhering to all of our Klub Rules is of ultra importance at all times, then this space is not for you. We have no mercy for consent violators, personal space invaders, toxic masculinity, perpetrators of sexual assault, dating app zorros and so on. You can demonstrate that you gained sufficient in-depth knowledge in navigating Verboten's BDSM & fetish playspaces by becoming a member via our website or being vetted at our social event, Tears For Beers. Alternatively, you can get vetted every time again at our doors at risk of being turned away. Please respect us in safeguarding our cummunity.
DO FLAG THINGS
+ Does the venue feel a bit chilly?
+ Does the music feel too loud?
+ Is anyone making you feel uncomfortable for any reason?
+ Do any rooms feel too dark or too bright?
+ Are you struggling to find free tap water?
+ Are you looking for a place to sit?
+ Have you spotted someone who should not be in this space?
+ Are you feeling overwhelmed?
+ Do you think you have a medical emergency?
These are just a few reasons you can approach any of the Verboten Safeguards wearing blue beret hats and logo harnesses. The key is to let us know IMMEDIATELY so we can change things directly whilst you are still at the event - we are there to have your back.

UNIVERSAL SAFEWORD PINEAPPLE
We do not tolerate any idiots in our space. Whether they entered your personal space, touched you without your permission, said something that did not feel positive, or infringed any of our other house rules.
By discreetly asking for PINEAPPLE, you can make us aware. We also respond to more commonly known safewords of the vanilla nightlife such as 'Ask for Angela'.
