Kinkly explains Pick-Up Play

Pick-up play is a well-known and popular way to get play partners at dungeon parties and BDSM clubs. Pick-up play is part flirting and part quick negotiation. Some people prefer pick-up play to more arranged scenes planned well in advance. This enables pick-up players to get to know new people, to practice their improvisation skills, and to experience new things.

As with all types of BDSM play, pick-up players must thoroughly negotiate their scene and agree on limits and safewords. Ensuring safety, consent and mutual satisfaction is essential for the long-term reputation of pick-up players.
