CODE OF CONDUCT FOR JOCK PARTY UK
JOCK is a private members’ club for gay and bisexual males (and male-presenting non-binary) age 18 years and over.
Your safety is our primary concern. JOCK has first aiders at every event. If you feel unwell, or spot someone who looks like they need medical help, please let a member of staff know so that JOCK can offer them assistance and first aid as required.
JOCK runs all of our events with an underwear or sports kit dress code and expects members to make an effort to comply. The only exception to this is JOCK LITE where a more relaxed take on the dress code is permitted. Please see the JOCK dress code for more details. If you need advice on the outfit you plan to wear, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org attaching any photos which may help us advise. You may be asked to leave if you are not in compliance with the dress code.
Members should be civil to each other at all times.
Members should follow and comply with, instructions given by JOCK management, JOCK event staff and venue staff. These instructions are for your own safety and the safety of other members and guests.
Members will be required to abide by our dress code for those events where a dress code is in effect.
By default, the dress code will apply at all JOCK events although in exceptional cases and for some events the dress code may be waived. For example, events branded JOCK LITE’ are taster events and sometimes run with more relaxed dress requirements.
Members should respect other people and their choices at the event.
JOCK welcomes queer men of all backgrounds, including male presenting non-binary people, and takes a zero tolerance policy to racism, transphobia, biphobia, body-shaming and any other discrimination at our events
Members should understand that only consensual acts between adults are permitted. If someone says ‘no’ then you will respect that decision and abide by it without question. JOCK always supports the rule that “No means no”.
Anyone found to be trying to engage in non-consensual sex will be removed from he event and may risk prosecution in accordance with UK law, as well as being refused entry to any future JOCK events.
Members will abide by other members’ safer sex choices. JOCK promotes safer sex choices and provides access to condoms and latex-friendly lube.
It is illegal to solicit (or offer to provide) sex in exchange for money or other material gain, which will not be allowed at or in connection with JOCK events. Any breach of this law will be banned from all future JOCK events and may be reported to appropriate authorities and thereafter face prosecution in accordance with UK Law.
You will not do anything to any other member, guest or member of JOCK or venue staff that is against their will or that they indicate in words or actions that they are uncomfortable doing and will be removed from the event and may be banned from all future JOCK events for failure to follow this rule.
