How do I rent with CDR?

Fill out our rental inquiry form and include some possible dates and times for your rental or, if you are unsure about renting, you can schedule a tour of the space. For those looking to rent the space for a few hours, one week’s notice is usually enough. For those who are interested in renting the space for an overnight stay we’d recommend contacting us at least two weeks in advance.

Where are you located?

CDR has 2 locations, one in Logan Square and one in the West Loop.

The Logan Square is just North and West of downtown Chicago and 20 minutes from O’Hare Airport. For your convenience we offer free private parking.

The West Loop is minutes from Downtown Chicago. We have plenty of street and metered parking.

What should I pack for my visit to CDR?

Bring clothing, a bite to eat, your favorite toys or restraints and music. There’s no dress code at CDR, but if enjoy fetish clothing or shoes you will need to bring your own. Our kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, large refrigerator with a freezer, coffee maker, tea kettle, glasses, corkscrew, plates and cutlery items so feel free to bring along items for an evening meal and morning meal. Because of our discreet location ordering from a restaurant for delivery is not convenient. See the related answers below for more information on equipment and music.

What type of equipment is at CDR?

You are welcome to bring your own toys or use ours. Both play rooms have bondage tables, restraints, spreader bars, nylon and cotton rope, noise blocking head phones, blindfolds, nipple clamps, silicone toys and corporal implements. The Red Room also features two large full length mirrors and a spanking horse. The Chamber has a large suspension frame, spanking bench and St. Andrew’s cross. Cross dressing clothes, wigs and accessories are available in a shared closet.

Besides dungeon equipment, is anything else provided?

For your comfort and convenience we provide chilled bottled water, candles for mood lighting (please bring your own candles for wax play), disposable absorbent plastic-backed “puppy house-training pads” for messy play, black latex gloves (size medium), latex for covering toys and cleaning products. The bathroom has a shower and bathtub and is stocked with soap, shampoo, mouthwash and lots of fresh towels bath towels.

In addition to the items mentioned above overnight guests are provided with WiFi access, snacks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, even more bath towels and some special goodies to use during their stay.

Can we hire someone to teach us?

Absolutely! Private instruction is $125 for 60 minutes or $185 for 90 minutes. Besides owning CDR Sophia Chase is a professional dominatrix and has been a sexuality educator for over a decade. A free tour of the dungeon will provide basic information about how to safely use dungeon equipment, but if you are looking for one on one instruction on specific topics, for example: negotiating a scene, flogging, spanking, bondage, sensation play, electrical play or even plastic wrap suspension (one of Sophia’s specialties), private instruction will be a great fit for you or you and your partner! Details are at chicagodungeonrentals.com/packages

Can you hook me/us up with someone to play with?

We’re not a dating or hook-up service. However, if you’d like to hire Dominatrix Sophia Chase for a domination session, that option is available.

A session is playtime with Sophia

A session with a skilled professional dominatrix can be a thrilling experience for an individual, couple or threesome. This is the type of appointment most folks think of when you say you’re visiting a dominatrix. However, unlike the dominatrix stereotype we see in TV and movies, pain is not part of the scene unless that’s an interest of the submissive.  Details about your interests will be discussed by email or phone with Sophia to be sure that she’s the right dominatrix for you, a date, time and duration for your session is set.

Unlike private instruction where Sophia is in street clothes, for a session she’ll be wearing more exciting fetish attire. Wardrobe requests can be accommodated whenever possible; take a look at her Instagram account for an glimpse of the possibilities.

While the play is usually erotic and sexually charged, for legal reasons there is no sex (meaning oral sex, manual stimulation or penetrative sex) between Sophia and those she plays with. However, couples who session with her may be as intimate with each other as they like.

Individuals seeing Sophia will assume the role of the submissive. If a couple or threesome is seeing Sophia there are a few different dynamics possible:

  • She can dominate both partners
  • She can co-top with a fellow dominant
  • She can dominate one of you while the other watches as a voyeur
  • She can join you as a service top where she can whisper in the ear of the dominant partner, helping them run the show or use her expertise to set a scene that you could not do on your own. For example: she could place your partner in safe yet elaborate bondage (like plastic wrap suspension) and then leave you two to enjoy the predicament, skillfully arrange electrodes on one player and leave you instructions on how to safely play with a TENS unit, or help a novice top get into a dominant mindset and their partner into a submissive state.

The content varies based on the interests of the submissive or couple but the constants are: the submissive’s areas of interest will be discussed by email prior to the day of the session. When you arrive Sophia will greet you at the door in street clothes and you’ll sit down for a brief pre-scene negotiation where she’ll ask the submissive(s) questions to better understand their needs, desires and limits and they can ask any questions that they might have. Once everyone is on the same page there’s time to use the bathroom and Sophia will then, before stepping out for a few minutes to change attire, give you instructions on dressing/undressing and where to sit/stand/kneel until her return. Playtime happens. If an orgasm is an important part of the scene for the submissive they are allowed to mastrubate, or if it’s a couple they can be as intimate as they want without Sophia’s physical involvement (though I can remain in the room / be involved in other ways). You’ll have time to compose yourself and use the shower, if desired/necessary, before leaving.

Flexible Start and End Time: sessions with Sophia are designed as more of an experience than an appointment. While there is a scheduled start and end time (because everyone’s time is valuable), they are flexible. You may arrive as early as 15 minutes prior to the start time or as late as 15 minutes past the start time and still have the entire hour(s) of play. The end of your session may also last past the scheduled end time because erotic play time isn’t designed to stop at a precise moment. It could alternately be used for additional time to compose yourself following your adventure or to talk about the experience.

Standard Session Rates

1 hour $400 (flexible start/end time)

1.5 hours $600 (flexible start/end time)

2 hours $800 (flexible start/end time)

3 hours $1,200 (flexible start/end time)

I’d like to bring music, do you have speakers?

Yes, we have speakers with audio jacks for iPods, smart phones, etc in both playrooms and our Domestic Space also has a CD player. Because music sets the mood for a scene we encourage you to bring whatever music you enjoy. If you’d like to try something different, ask us to borrow the house iPod featuring mixes perfect for playtime. Do you have questions about device compatibility? Contact us and we’ll check for you.

Could I book the dungeon for a party?

If your party is very small, yes. We limited the size of the rental groups to four. We are not set up for large parties.

How safe is the dungeon?

We take safety very seriously. Equipment at the dungeon is regularly inspected for signs of wear and either fixed or replaced. We encourage our renters to play within their skill set and are always happy to demonstrate new equipment. Bolt cutters are on the premises and all play rooms are equipped with fire extinguishers, utility shears, flashlights, sharps containers and first aid cabinets stocked with items tailored to BDSM emergency needs. These cabinets include:

  • adhesive bandages
  • individual packets of triple antibiotic ointment
  • 70% isopropyl alcohol spray
  • hydrogen peroxide spray
  • antiseptic spray
  • blood clotting spray
  • burn spray
  • ammonia inhalants (smelling salts)
  • glucose tablets
  • ibuprofen
  • body heat reflecting blanket

How clean is the dungeon?

We believe cleanliness is essential for safe use of a communally used BDSM space and when possible we provide single use disposable items. While we ask that renters spray and wipe down the bondage furniture, similar to how one would wipe down equipment at a gym, following a rental the CDR staff are the ones who clean any furniture, toys and equipment that have been used.

Based on the unique cleanliness needs of a dungeon we’ve researched and carefully selected our cleaning equipment and products. They include:

UVee Sanitizing Toy Cleaners are used in addition to hand washing and spray cleaners to clean any equipment (nipple clamps, leather items, gags, cbt toys, and insertable such as vibrators, 100% silicone dildos and 100% silicone plugs) that can fit inside the 16.5″ x 8.75″ x 5″ units. These UV-C cleaners kill 99.9% of all bacteria, including yeast, E.coli, Salmonella, strep, pseudomonas and other microorganisms using prolonged exposure the UV-C light, a sanitizing process similar to smart phone sanitizers but specifically designed for adult toys.

A Dry Heat Sterilizer similar to those used at dental offices and hospitals is use to sterilize small metal implements including Wartenburg pinwheels, dilating sounds, dental gags, speculums and hemostats in individually sealed nylon pouches that include a color changing sterilization indicator sticker.

Simple Green Pro-5 Industrial Disinfecting Cleaner is appropriate for use on everything except leather and fabric. It is the primary cleaner at the dungeon and a spray bottle is available in each room.

Sporicidin Antimicrobial Lotion Soap (classified by the FDA as a Healthcare Personnel Surgical Hand Scrub and a First Aid Antiseptic skin wound cleanser) is safe to use as a hand soap, to clean wounds and to hand wash small toys and pieces of equipment. It is safe for daily hand washing and is labeled as effective against 99.9% of disease-causing organisms, including both gram-negative & gram-positive bacteria and is available in the CDR bathroom and kitchen.

Sporicidin Disinfectant Spray is an EPA-registered hospital disinfectant that meet all of the EPA requirements for disinfection of hard, non-porous surfaces and can be used for a variety of applications. Effective against most common organisms, including H1N1, AIDS, MRSA, Influenza A2, Avian Flu, VRE, TB, Herpes, Escherichia coli (E.coli) and many others. It is also recommended for use in the clean-up of blood and body fluids that pose bacterial, fungal and viral health hazards. Sporicidin is a full spectrum disinfectant that provides 100% kill of vegetative and odor-causing organisms. Sporicidin is in compliance with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. It is also safe for use on porous materials like leather and soft plastics like the vinyl covering the bondage tables.

Because cleaning products are only as effective as the way in which they’re used, here’s a run down of how dungeon items are cleaned:

  • Depending on the material and type of item they are washed water and soap (Lysol hand soap or Sporicidin Antimicrobial Soap), sprayed and wiped down with Lysol, Sporicidin Disinfectant Spray or the Simple Green Pro-5 to clean the surface.
    -Cleaned items are then sprayed with the Simple Green Pro-5 Disinfectant or Sporicidin Disinfectant Spray until they are completely wet.
    -Items to sit wet for 10 minutes for the surface to be disinfected.
    -Any residual wetness is wiped up with a paper towel.
    -Toys that can fit in our dry heat sterilizer or UVee Toy Sanitizers also go through this additional sterilization or sanitization process.
  • Floors are regularly washed with Pine-Sol or Simple Green Pro-5 Disinfectant.
  • Bed linens, bath towels, bondage rope, cloth blindfolds, etc. go through our washer and dryer. The Samsung washer at CDR includes sanitize and allergen cycles which can eliminate up to 99% of bacteria and kill up to 95% of allergens in each laundry load.

Do you have additional questions about dungeon cleaning? We’d be happy to provide clarification and answer any questions that we are able to. Questions can be sent to info@chicagodungeonrentals.com

Is smoking allowed?

Smoking is not permitted inside the CDR building.

Is alcohol allowed?

We discourage renters from drinking and using any dungeon equipment, however we do recognize that a couple may want to have a bottle of wine with a meal or enjoy some champagne during their visit. You are welcome to bring alcohol but please only use dungeon equipment when you are sober.
