Updated 30 March 2020

One week ago, we made the decision to discontinue Domina Parties events on a case by case basis. Days later, Sex On Premises Venues (SOPVs) were ordered by the Federal Government to cease operation as a part of the response to COVID-19. On Sunday 29 March 2020, the Federal Government recommended that all gatherings of people that do not cohabit be limited to two individuals.

We are staying informed of the local, national, and global progress of this pandemic and will continue to respond as appropriate.

At this point in time Domina Parties events are suspended pending further developments.

Why are the events still live?
We have made the decision to leave all published events live on the website, facebook, and fetlife so that you can continue to be updated by us by going to any of these locations.

I bought a ticket to an event, what does this mean for me?
Our entire world is changing week-by-week. Today we have decided to cancel the events for April. All tickets will be refunded through our ticketing platform TryBooking.com.au. If you hold a ticket to one of these events, you will be receiving an email shortly.
Tickets for events from May onwards will still be viable at this time. Should this change, we will notify you directly.

So, when is the next party?
Your guess is as good as ours. Two things will need to happen for Domina Parties events to run again; gatherings of more than two people must be permitted, and SOPVs must be allowed to reopen. We are playing with some online concepts (mostly for our own amusement) and if they feel like a thing we might just share them.

How can I support my favourite Domina?
Find Her website, social media and more here and then contact Her to find out what She needs. Many of our incredible peers are offering phone and online sessions, long-distance training, amazing clips and more. Details will be in our April newsletter.

At this point in time, Domina Parties Australia events will continue to run.

We value the health and safety of our hosting Dominas as well as our attendees.

We are confident that our standard of best practice hygiene protocols will continue to serve us well, and we are augmenting them with some additional measures to offer the best protection for us all.

We are staying informed of the local, national, and global progress of this pandemic and will continue to respond as appropriate.
