Frequently Asked Questions

If I attend one of your Orientations, am I obligated to join?

Absolutely not! While attending Orientation is a mandatory prerequisite for membership with our club, it is up to you whether or not you wish to join.

If I’m not going to join Threshold, what’s the purpose of attending Orientation?

While many people attend our Orientations as one of the prerequisites of becoming a member of Threshold, it also serves as a great way to get to know us and learn a little more about the kink community.

Where is the club?

Threshold is located at 11300 Hartland St in North Hollywood. The entrance to the club is not at the ‘front’ of the building; it is along the side of the building that runs parallel & becomes Elmer Ave. Specifically, the large black door painted with a large T that is opposite the Hartland Street cul-de-sac.
