How many guys attend at a Stumptown Strokes event?

Our venue has a maximum capacity of 50 people. Once we send out our monthly event invites, we typically reach venue capacity soon thereafter and close registration. (Tip: if you plan on joining us, we encourage you to respond quickly to the invite to register your attendance.)

What's the age range of attendees?

Guys who attend range in age from their 20s up to their 70s. The average age at any given Stumptown Strokes event is approximately 35 to 45 years old.

What if I don't want to be touched?

You are in charge of your own body and, frankly, "No means no." Although it may be obvious to most people, we ask our attendees to inquire first before touching another person. If someone replies 'no', respect their wishes. It's that simple.

I don't identify as gay. Can I still attend?

If you enjoy jacking off, you can (and should) attend. Masturbation is universal and, thus, applies to all sexual orientations. We are a group of men who enjoy jacking off with other men. If you enjoy watching and/or playing with other men while they jack off, you will fit right in. At no time do we ask anybody to disclose their sexual orientation and/or marital status. If, for any reason, you think you may be put off by this kind of environment, Stumptown Strokes is probably not for you.

What's allowed (and not allowed) at a Stumptown Strokes event?

We encourage safe J/O play and stress the "No lips below the hips" rule. And while kissing is allowed, insertion of anything anywhere is not permitted — whether with yourself or another person. Some examples of permitted play:

  • Self-masturbation and consensual mutual masturbation
  • Showing off and watching
  • Frot/Frottage (rubbing bodies/penises together)
  • Oral contact above the waist only (kissing, nipple nibbling, etc.)

What's provided at a Stumptown Strokes event?
