Most asked questions

What's your dress code?

We don't have a dress code. We are not your mother. It's not our job to tell you how to dress. Wear what you're comfortable in, and/or what turns you on.

We have a changing/coat room where you can get into your kinky outfits.

What's the difference between Crucible and Lifestyle memberships?

Nothing. It's just a means of self identification. If you're predomnately a swinger, get the lifestyl membership. Both give you exactly the same perks.
If I come, will I have to... ?

You don't 'have to' do anything you're not ready for. Everybody travels at their own pace. You can come in and just watch, for as long as that may take. You don't have to get naked, you don'w have to participate in any way, UNTIL YOU ARE READY.

I'm a new member, can I bring a guest?

Yes. Members can bring in up to 2 guests per event. But after 2 or 3 times, we ask that they become members as well.

412 V Street, NorthEAST, DC

Online memberships available after reading the membership page HERE

We have a 100% ID check at the door when you enter

"The Crucible is dedicated to providing a safe gathering space for all of our members and their guests. In an effort to provide our community with the safest space possible, beginning March 1, 2018, The Crucible application process for all new memberships and all membership renewals will include an ID search of the public US Department of Justice and the DC Metropolitan Police Department registered sex offenders database. Additionally, all non-member guests requesting admission to events at The Crucible must present a valid government-issued photo ID which includes date of birth, and guest entries will be checked against these databases as well.

Should you be unable to present current, valid ID, you will not be granted access to The Crucible. No exceptions will be made in this regard. Anyone who is registered on these databases will be denied membership and/or entry to The Crucible.

We appreciate your patience as we add this important step to our membership and admission process."
