Fric·tion /n/: the resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another

Grip the moment at Friction, a pop-up style event focused on bondage, kink, sensuality, and creating joy – together. Hosts MxBliss (of Jiffy Kink and Studio Bound) & Shay Tiziano (of BENT and Twisted Windows) are excited to bring the Friction party back to Gallery Erato in Seattle! Join us early in the evening for a class and icebreaker designed to help you meet fellow attendees (and up your flirting game) followed by curated performances. Stay for the plentiful hardpoints and do all the pokey, stingy, and thuddy things in the dungeon area. At Friction, you can expect a friendly, inclusive environment with entertainment, games, and plenty of shenanigans to see and do. 


This event will sell out, so buy your advance tickets!

COVID Guidelines:

We are closely monitoring local COVID infection rates and city/state/CDC guidance as well as the latest information about the variants in order to keep this event as safe and accessible as reasonable while protecting the health of attendees. Requirements may change and we will endeavor to notify ticket holders as soon as possible if they do. At present, we expect that attendees will need to provide proof of vaccination at the door. Sufficient proof of vaccinated status is a state/federally issued vaccine card or a photograph of your card (with a matching name on your ID) showing that you are two weeks past the complete vaccine course. Please note, a negative COVID test is not sufficient if you are not vaccinated – vaccination is required (and boosters are highly recommended). K/n95 masks are strongly encouraged, but not required.

Please write with event questions, and with venue or ticketing questions.
