* DISCOUNTED PRICE FOR GUYS WHO ARE 30 OR UNDER: Pay just $20 for any party. You must bring state-issued or student ID showing birthdate to get the discount. Men of all ages are encouraged to attend and welcomed; we offer this discount only to entice guys who are early in their careers to attend as they have less experience and generally earn less.

UNDRESS CODE:  You must be fully naked at the Mon, Tues, Weds, Thurs and Fri parties. On some Saturdays and on Sundays at Paddles you can wear underwear, jockstraps, etc. or less. At Paddles this means no shirts and no pants. Full length underwear and undershirts are not allowed. Boxer shorts are discouraged.

ARRIVAL TIMES AND PARTY END TIMES: PLEASE ARRIVE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PARTY. Arriving during the first hour is a good target. Door closure times listed above may be earlier if the party ends (everyone finishes and goes home), which happens occasionally, so the sooner the better. As long as there are people still playing at the party we remain open to maximum stated times (10pm on M, W and F, 3pm on Tues and Thurs, and 5:30pm on Sundays), however if there is just one person left we end the party.

Admission includes free attended clothes check, condoms and lube, clean-up supplies, some snacks & a good time with guys from the region and beyond.​
