BEEF parties are not for the sensitive crowd as many parties put on a full kinky porn performance act on stage as well as contain a playroom designed by a changing concept or theme. BEEF is not about showing off, it's all about the people and fulfilling their deepest fantasies in a warm and welcoming environment.
