⭕️ BEDLAM - Past Present & Future ⭕️
We would like to take a moment and thank you all for contributing to last night’s amazing party - on June 18th 2022.
Whether you contributed with your sexy scenes, showing off your amazing outfits, or just enjoyed the space for one last hurrah at this location - I thank you all so very much from the bottom of my heart.
BEDLAM is more than a party to us, it’s a safe space for anyone to enjoy, explore and indulge in their favorite kinks - while giving everyone a chance to connect with other lovely kinksters alike.
The most rewarding part of throwing our parties is hearing stories of how so many attendees connected with one another - whether their connection led to a future friendship, relationship, partnership, D/s dynamic, lover etc.. it fills my heart with joy whenever approached about their connection happening at BEDLAM.
As most of you know, Paddles BDSM Dungeon has been home to BEDLAM parties for the past 6 Years, during which time tons of beautiful sexy memories were created amongst the thousands of amazing folks that walked through our doors.
Paddles relocation is not the end, but a fresh start and a new adventure.
We look forward to picking up where we left off as soon as their new location is up and running.
Stay tuned for future updates.
Come out early. Stay out late. Dance, Laugh, Play, Socialize, make new Friends, meet potential Play Partners etc..

- What kind of party is BEDLAM?
The quickest way to describe BEDLAM - is that we transform NYC's biggest permanent Dungeon into a Night Club - where people have the freedom to dance, mingle/ socialize, observe/ learn and/ or indulge in BDSM play in a clean and safe environment.
- Is BEDLAM a monthly party?
Pretty much! :)
- Is this month a themed party?
Not really as we are a straightforward Fetish with awesome music, cool ambiance and sexy vibe :) - but we welcome people to express themselves however they like :) whether it's for a specific theme or kink ~ we welcome all and open to all :))

NO PHOTOS or VIDEOS of any kind - unless authorized & supervised by the Host or Security - as we make sure everyone’s privacy is respected.

Yeppers :) $3 per coat or per bag.

The venue sells and serves non-alcoholic drinks such as: Sodas, juices, energy drinks, bottled water and more - at around $3 each. We do not sell or serve alcohol, but you're more than welcome to bring your own poison ;) and drink responsibly.
- Do you sell advanced tickets?
Nope - we try to keep things simple :) cash at the door - the venue accepts cash only.
- Do you offer discounts?
Not at the moment, as we've been closed for 14 months.
- How do I become a member?
We do not have a membership program. All are welcome - from the vanillas and curious - to the newbies and intermediate - all the way to experienced.
- Is it Gay/ Lesbian friendly?
YES ~ WE WELCOME ALL!!! Regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation - whether your gay, lesbian, straight, queer, transsexual, transgender, pansexual and etc.. - we mean business when we say OPEN TO ALL!! :)
- What kind of crowd to expect?
Since we are OPEN TO ALL & WELCOME ALL (18 and above) we attract a diverse crowd of mixed folks of all ages, experience levels, and gender identity.
- How many people usually attend BEDLAM?
We usually attract an average of 150+ attendees each party - in waves throughout the party.
- Does it get crowded with 150+ people?
Noticed I said "throughout the party" - meaning that we get a total of 150+ people in waives - from the ones who arrive and leave earlier in the evening, to the ones arriving and leaving later in the evening - all the way to the wee hours folks ;)
- Is there dancing?
We transform our Dungeon into a Night Club Fetish Party - where folks have the option of engaging in BDSM play, or dance, or observe while enjoying the view and music :) Deep House Music by: DJ Ginplo & DJ TwiZted BrotherZ.
- Do I have to Play?
Playing is not mandatory and up to you - you're more than welcome to mingle, dance, play, watch/ observe, meet other kinksters, potential playmates and etc. You don't have to do anything you don't want to - as we strive to providing a safe, sane and consensual play space.
- Is there BDSM/ Fetish furniture?
YES!! Paddles NYC (the venue we rent from) is a REAL 4,000 sq ft Permanent Dungeon equipped with all the goodies: Prison Cells, Suspended Cages, Bondage Chairs, Bondage Tables, St. Andrew Crosses, Suspension Points, Spreader Bars, Spanking Benches and more!
- Do you have a strict dress code?
Fetish or all black is encouraged - absolutely not enforced. This means that you're welcome to dress to impress or express yourself as you are most comfortable in.
- Resident Guest Players - what does this mean exactly?
This means that we invite/ house experienced players who enjoy playing with volunteers amongst attendees - however, they are not obligated to play with anyone - just as attendees are not obligated to playing with anyone they don't feel comfortable with - without giving any specific reason. PS: Please and thank you go a long way ;)
- I'm new to the BDSM scene
BEDLAM Host/ Founder is a Kink Educator with a broad general knowledge of the BDSM scene, and would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
- It's my first BEDLAM or first party ever - what do I do?!
Not to worry - we have super friendly Ambassadors (aka BEDLAM's Angels) that will greet you as soon as you walk in our Dungeon - just mention that it's your fist time at BEDLAM and they would be more than happy to escort you around, show you where everything is (including our resident players), go over rules of conduct, and answer any questions you might have.
- Will there be available Suspension Points and Furniture if Resident & Guest Players are using them?
Of course! Resident & Monthly Guest Players (combined) are allowed to use only about 10% of the Dungeon - with plenty of hard points and furniture for everyone else to use.
- We are from out of town, want to play but didn't bring any toys.
Paddles Club (the venue we rent from) lends toys to any guest (pending availability) at no additional fees - they just require an ID to hold on to, until toys are returned.
- Who do we talk to if an issue arises during the party or if I’m being harassed by someone?
The Host, Security and/ or labelled Dungeon Monitors - which will handle all issues immediately. The Host's #1 priority is to make sure everyone feels safe at BEDLAM - hence why labeled Dungeon Monitors are connected to the Host via radios. And to take it one step further; the Host & Dungeon Monitors refrain from all play (throughout the party) in order to be ready and available to tackle any issue immediately, while they walk around the Dungeon - our DMs are trained professionals, not volunteers.
- Can we volunteer for BEDLAM?
We’ve stopped accepting volunteers positions for the time being - all staff members are hired trained professionals - all positions are currently filled for the time being.
- Is there parking?
Easy street parking is available after 7pm on 26th St. (the street where the entrance is located) also a 24 hours garage is available - directly across the street from the venue.
- Hotel Suggestions?
If you’re traveling from out of town or just wanna spend the night in the city that never sleeps ;) we recommend Carlton Arms Hotel - http://carltonarms.com/reservations/ with rooms starting at $90 per night and within walking distance from our party - you’re welcome! ;D
- I lost an item at BEDLAM and didn't realize til I got home - what do I do?
As much as we would love to help - we have zero control over what happens at venue after our party is over - and no access to the venue's list of scheduled parties, or which club staff is working on which date. So, your best bet is to contact Michael (the owner of the venue) at Paddles information line: (412) 313-4774 so that he can get in touch with a specific staff and clean up crew while they inspect the lost and found - and hopefully get back to you with some good news.
BEDLAM Parties take place in a 4,000 Sq Ft fully equipped permanent Dungeon - where guests enjoy a clean and safe place to indulge in their kink :)
PS- Multiple cleaning supplies & stations are available throughout the Dungeon - courtesy of Paddles Club & BEDLAM Party.
