    Proof Of Vaccination IS Required For Entry

    Until further notice, proof of vaccination is required for entry to ALL OhioSMART events INCLUDING THE OPEN HOUSE ON AUGUST 21st.

    We will accept the following:

    Your vaccination card in person at the event along with your photo ID

    A photograph on your phone of your vaccination card and ID: together in the same image and with ALL information visible. You should still bring your physical ID with you, but we understand not everyone carries their vaccine card.

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PROOF OF VACCINATION, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ENTER OUR FACILITY. This applies to everyone -- we're simply not willing to risk our members, guests, and their loved ones' health by taking anyone's word for it.

    Please join us on Saturday August 21st for a viewing of our amazing new space. We will be open from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m and will be giving tours and answering any questions you may have.

    At this time we are asking that only our vaccinated members and guests attend. If you are unable to be vaccinated please reach out to us and we can schedule a private viewing with the proper PPE.

    Please be mindful of the establishments current Covid policy. Wear a mask when it is required. Please keep social distancing in mind. Due to covid we want to reiterate the importance of asking before touching. Please keep in mind that people are at different levels of comfort with personal space and touch with the ongoing pandemic. Please keep as much distance as possible unless explicitly invited to sit closer or touch, as we want people to feel as comfortable as possible. We have a zero tolerance policy for those that disregard the safety rules.

    Parking info -

    The gated parking lot is located on 33rd Street between Hamilton and St. Clair. Please come to door B to enter the building.

    As you may have heard, the state of Ohio is starting the process of reopening businesses.

    OhioSMART is stable and has no intention of going anywhere. We will always exist in some form. We miss seeing you all, and we would love to host some events to provide the safe place you all know and enjoy. However, we refuse to risk even one member's life during this pandemic.

    You’re probably wondering, “so when will you reopen?” We are no strangers to evaluating risk, and are taking your privacy and safety into account at all times. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it develops, and will open in a way that is safe, when it is safe to do so - no sooner.

    In the meantime, SMART leadership has been combining the power of each of our five unburnt brain cells to put together virtual classes and munches - things you can use now and after the plague is under control. We're hosting weekly Netflix Parties (Keep checking the events calendar), and we're almost ready to launch our Discord server to provide a place for Jackbox games, roundtables, and other virtual events.

    Our community has been through times like these, and we will get through this and reunite to be our kinky beautiful selves together again someday - we appreciate your patience as we work to play our part in making sure everyone joins us on the other side.

    Stay home if you can, wash your hands either way, and stay tuned for the next update!

    Greetings all, we hope that you and yours are safe, healthy, and keeping to the CDC recommendations about hand-washing, disinfecting your space, keeping distance from others, and covering your face in public.

    There are three parts to this update: 1. Elections for the OhioSMART Board, 2. Moving to the new dungeon space, and 3. Ways we’re exploring to stay connected as a community.

    Part 1:

    Our by-laws say elections must happen in person in May. While the governor has announced that he intends to “roll out” plans to reopen May 1st, we believe getting quorum in one place as soon as May without an end in sight to the pandemic is too big of a risk for us to take. At this point in time, we're not looking to plan any events until June at the earliest.

    The by-laws don’t have language for such an unprecedented situation, so we’re requesting that the current board be allowed to stay on until we’re able to do a proper election. If there isn’t support for this, we can look into other options. Regardless of when elections are held, the changeover will be delayed because bank transfers and other business activities are impossible to complete while things are closed and there’s a shelter-in-place order.

    No matter what, the current board is most qualified to oversee the move and adjustments to the new space and will need extra transition time before the new board can take over.

    Part 2:

    We’ve been moving carfuls of small things to the new space, but the landlady is aiming for our full furniture move (with moving truck) to be by the end of April. This is necessary, so we’ll be taking sanitary precautions EXTREMELY seriously during the move by having and enforcing strict sanitizing, distancing, hand-washing, glove-wearing, and mask usage protocols. We’re planning to coordinate the work in small shifts which should spread the work out and keep contact down. If you've already signed up to be a part of the Moving Team, you'll be hearing from us soon.

    Part 3:

    It’s important to keep connected and since we don’t know when it will be safe to get up close and personal with each other again -- we’re considering opening a virtual space on Discord so we can have munches and classes while apart.

    For those of you who don’t know, Discord is a free chat server program that has both text and voice chat rooms, with the capability for one host to share a screen. Most of them operate as a 24/7 chat space, but we’d do it a little differently: it will operate much like the dungeon. When it’s closed, it’s closed, and when it’s open, it’s for a specific time and reason with moderators present. We want to avoid burnout, so there will be an announcements channel for leadership so you can get notified of upcoming virtual events, and a place where you can go look at class notes, but otherwise no notifications you have to worry about.

    That’s all for now! We’re interested in hearing from you on ALL THREE points, so please discuss on the Members Forum (email us if you need help logging in), PM us, or email info@ohiosmart.org! Thank you, and stay safe <3

    We hope that everyone is doing well and staying healthy!

    Ohio's Shelter in Place order has obviously canceled all April events for us. We will keep everyone updated on the status of May events as we see how long gatherings will be limited. We're currently working with our Web Team on how to set up some virtual events that safeguard everyone's privacy, so keep an eye out for those events coming up!

    With all of the cancellations, we want to assure our members that we will be extending everyone's membership for the length of time that we are closed. As a reminder, we do also have a scholarship program for those who are experiencing hardship. If you're doing well currently and you would like to help sponsor a scholarship, or if you're experiencing hardship and would like to talk about receiving one, please email us at info@ohiosmart.org

    Our moving date has also been postponed until after the Shelter in Place order is over. Thank you to everyone who has already volunteered! If you would like to join the Moving Team, just send us an email to let us know, and we will add you to the contact list once we have a moving date.

    In light of the increasing restrictions surrounding social gatherings, and our own increasing concerns for the health and safety of our attendees, we have decided to cancel all of our remaining events for the month of March. This means that Third Saturday on 3/21, our monthly munch on 3/24, and SMART Gamers on 3/31 will all be canceled. Our SMART Ties Rope Safety event on April 5th will be rescheduled to Sunday May 3rd.

    We understand that this is a very stressful time, and that community is more important than ever. Please utilize our Members Only forums on ohiosmart.org to stay connected, and reach out to the board at info@ohiosmart.org if you have any specific needs or questions.

    Now for some good news! We are almost ready to move into our new space, which means the next time you see us will be at our amazing new playspace. The moving date will be finalized this week, and we will let you all know as soon as it's set. If you would like to assist with the move and get an early look at the new space, send us an email so we can add you to the Moving Team.

    Thank you everyone, and keep watching for updates on our upcoming events.

    Anyone who attends OhioSMART should already be aware that the safety and health of our members and guests is extremely important to us.

    At this time, we are not planning on canceling events. The current recommendations for Ohio apply to social gatherings much larger than ours, but we are staying informed as new recommendations come out and will keep all of you updated as well.

    We would like to reiterate that the Ohio Department of Health makes the following recommendations to protect yourself from illness:

    -Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; dry hands with a clean towel or air dry hands.

    -Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.

    -Cover your mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

    -Stay home when you are sick.

    -Avoid contact with people who are sick.

    Our upcoming events will have a large stock of Purell single use wipes, which have been graciously donated by a member. We're asking anyone who is sick, or has been in contact with anyone who is sick, please stay home. We'll miss you, but we'll see you when you're feeling better! A board member may ask you to leave if you are obviously symptomatic.

    Supporting one another is important in our community, and we understand social distancing can be difficult. Please remember you can stay connected through our Members Only Forum at ohiosmart.org

    Big news for OhioSMART: We’ll be at a new facility starting in early 2020!

    The building we’ve operated in for 10+ years has been purchased and its occupants’ leases have all been terminated, including the owner of the Red Door.

    Here’s what we know:

    The move will be happening later than we thought, as we previously stated, real estate is a complex process.

    Speaking of, the current space will be available to us longer than previously thought, so January and February events will be at the Red Door as usual, perhaps more.

    The owner does not intend to lose business, which means that there is a low chance of missed parties. Keep us on your schedule!

    We have seen the space, our side is over three times the size of the current space.

    We're very excited for everyone to see the new space, our new amenities (including lockers!) and the new dedicated space for SMART's social area.

    The owner is very optimistic and has ambitious renovation plans.

    It is ADA accessibile.

    We will keep you posted regarding the following months.

    There is a small patio that we will have sole access to.

    The entrances to Eros and our space will remain separate.

    Big news for OhioSMART: We’ll be at a new facility starting in January 2020!

    The building we’ve operated in for 10+ years has been purchased and its occupants’ leases have all been terminated, including the owner of the Red Door.

    Don’t panic! The owner of our dungeon space is NOT going out of business and kept us in mind when purchasing a new facility, which was just finalized! Real estate is a notoriously difficult process so we can’t go into too much detail yet, but here’s the info we’ve been given so far:

    - the move itself will happen sometime in December or early January, and we’re looking for help!

    - it’s only 7 minutes away from the current dungeon

    - it’s bigger than the current space and boasts more amenities.

    The Board will get to see the space in person for the first time in the coming weeks, after which we look forward to posting an update! We’ll also need volunteers to help move the equipment from the old space to the new one, so keep an eye out for that job description/signup post as well.

    PM us or email info@ohiosmart.org with any concerns you might have. We appreciate your patience and understanding!

    We often have members asking us for more in-depth classes on sexual topics. We love those classes too! Unfortunately, we can't present demos on those types of classes when we take cash at the door.

    That's why on October Third Saturday, we're trying out a new approach. Our class and party for the evening will be prepaid ONLY, and you're going to want to get your registration in early, because no one wants to miss Butt Wait There's More:Anal Play with Rowan Morrison.

    The play party after the class will follow Member's Only rules (even if you aren't a member) so we can try out what we just learned.
