Etiquette

Häkki has an etiquette to ensure a relaxed but safe atmosphere within our community and events. If you notice anyone breaking these rules, we ask you kindly to inform the board members or the person organizing the event about it.

  1. We want to make sure that there’s a confidential mood within our association. It is not allowed to spread information about the identities or private matters of our members or the participants in our events to outsiders. Everyone has the right to choose what information they want to share about themselves with other members.
  2. We do not condone judgmental discourse. Everyone has the right to themselves and their opinions.
  3. Respect other’s private space. In other words, don’t grope or get too close to others if not invited to do so.
  4. We do not condone behavior that is based on assumptions about other people’s preferences. For example hurting someone on the assumption that they would be into it.
  5. If you run into another member outside of our community, you should not approach them in a way that would reveal any information about their sexual identity to others without their consent.
  6. The rules might vary depending on the event and we will inform the participants about the differences if needed. The participants are responsible to act according to the rules.
  7. In general, we will always follow the house rules of the venue in question. Usually for example risky activities such as breathplay, breaking of skin (with any tool) and using fire in a session is strictly prohibited without a permission from the event organizer. If you aren’t sure which activities are allowed, ask first.
  8. You are not allowed to take photos in our events without other peoples’ consent. Always ask for a permission to take any photo within our events, and make sure no one who doesn’t want to be in the photo ends up in one.
  9. Every member of our association and participant of our events is responsible for themselves and their actions in both live and online events. Anyone breaking these rules can be expelled from the association without a separate warning. The event organizer also has the right to remove any person from our events if their behavior is found disturbing.
