Work Shifts

Wait, I have to work?

We are “Party Throwers” as well as “Party Goers.” Being a member of Spanky’s (the best damn bar on theplaya) is more fun than a barrel of oil-covered-lesbian-midget-monkies-on-exstacy (just take my word for it, that’s fun). But that also means that we all have to do our share of the work on the playa to create a safe and fun environment.

Everyone must contribute in a meaningful way. There are lots of different things to do. There’s something for everybody. And we have people in camp that can teach you any of these jobs. Everyone should contribute at least 16 hours of their time at Burning Man to work shifts in Spanky’s Village.

Your 16 hour minimum does not include camp breakdown and cleanup at the end of the event. Everyone helps with those.

Objective: To entice the citizens of BRC to partake in the toys and attractions of the village. To act as emcee and rile the crowd when appropriate. To make the village more fun!!! Entice passers-by on the streets to come into the bar

Shift Duration: 4 hours

Hours of Operation: 4:00 pm – 8:01pm, 8:00pm – 12:02am, 12:01 am -3:00 am

Duties:

  • When the bar, attractions, toys, etc are not crowded or being used, it is your job to go out on the street with a megaphone and entice people to come into our space. You can adopt whatever tone suits you… Carnival barker, game show host, snarky reporter, circus ring leader, info-mercial salesman, etc.
  • When the bar area is crowded, but the toys and other camps spaces are not being used, your job is to mingle through the crowd and greet our guests (no megaphone needed)
  • Make sure they read the rules of consent (Consent 101)
  • Carry some “dirty name badges” with you (male and female). These are a great ice-breaker. These are pre-made name badges (ie. “Hello… My Name is:”) with humorous/dirty names on them. Sometimes they are clever double entendres, sometimes they are obvious, sometimes you need to say them out loud a few times before you get the dirty meaning of the name.
  • You go out on the street and stop people. You give them a new dirty name badge. You throw the trash in the trash bag.
  • This is a very social job. You will make lots of new friends. You will make lots of people laugh. You should also use this job to help promote village events, DJs, MPR, etc.
  • Have some kind of schtick too… like, say, “Pick a number between Neptune and cucumber”…then choose a name badge for them and say, “Your name for the rest of the day is ______”. Make sure they comprehend the name too.
  • Let them know about all the attractions in the village
  • Give them a tour of the camps in the village if they want one
  • Introduce them to Masters/Mistresses/Slaves that are on duty or available, if they’re interested
  • Tell them about the bar games
  • Introduce them to other Spankers and other patrons at the bar
  • Let them know that they are welcome to dance on the bar or stage
  • Get customers to interact with each other… be a matchmaker!
  • Promote the upcoming camp events (see the events page or events schedule at the bar for details). We usually have flyers at the bar which list our events for the week.
  • Recruit camp slaves! We all need slaves for massages, foot rubs, cooking, etc….and the bar area could always use more human benches! 😉
  • Let the customers know that they are in a safe space and it’s OK to get their freak on… within our limits.
  • Some people will be happy to just sit and chat at the bar with their friends, and that’s fine. Other people need a little social nudge to get them out of their shells… those are the people you are looking for
  • When the whole camp is totally rocking, get on the megaphone and cheerlead/commentate the wild things that are going on (bondage wall, Spank-O-Matic, etc)
  • Be fun, be humorous, promote the village and/or camp names often.
  • Keep an eye on the streets around SWB to make sure that bicycles and art cars aren’t blocking traffic… this could be a serious problem if emergency vehicles can’t get through. This happens almost every night.

Equipment Needed: Megaphone, Name Badges, trash bag, and a sexy outfit

Prerequisites: None

Report to: Bar Manager first (Disco Tits and/or Captain Obvious).  Camp Bitch second.  SEX Board last.

Objective: Sling shitty wine, shitty beer, entertain the patrons of Spanky’s Wine Bar

Shift Duration: 4hrs

Hours of Operation: 4:00pm – 8:01pm, 6:00pm – 10:01pm, 8:00pm – 12:02am, 10:00pm – 2:01am, 12:01am – 3:00am

Duties:

  • SWB does not tolerate underage drinking (21 and over only!)  Always check IDs… carefully.  On occasion, law enforcement does “sting operations” to entrap bars at Bman.  They will usually use young girls in these stings.  The girls will be sent in and will try to get alcohol or drugs.  Don’t fall for it!  Be diligent!  You can be personally ticketed/fined for serving booze to a minor or having any hand in finding, selling, gifting, trading drugs… plus, they could shut down SWB.  Note:  Weed is still illegal at Bman… because it’s held on BLM (federal) land.
  • We are not allowed to serve anyone who is already drunk or clearly on substances.  This is a real law!
  • It is okay for 18+ customers to be in the camp and participate in other adult activities… but they can’t drink unless they are over 21… and they can’t be “at the bar”
  • People under 18 are not allowed in Spanky’s front yard.
  • If you are a seasoned SWB bartender… Disco Tits may ask you to be Bar Lead (head bartender for a shift or two).  She will inform you of your additional responsibilities if she taps you for this honor.
  • If a customer orders an “Angel Shot”, that is a code for something.  It means that somebody is harassing them, or they are feeling uncomfortable about someone… or they are in danger.  Be discrete and calm.  Ask if they can identify the person in question, without them noticing.  Immediately let the bar manager/lead know.  It is important to get that customer away from the harassing person/danger right away.  You can get more info/details once they are in a safe location (sanctuary, kitchen, SWB HQ, etc.)  Also, SWB Security needs to be informed of who the harasser/danger is, right away.  Also…if you see a customer in distress, you can offer them an Angel Shot
  • We don’t allow photography or video at SWB… unless there is consent from everyone who might appear in the photo/video.  No exceptions.
  • We have games at the bar (like Deviant Dare Dice).  Nobody should be forced to play, but please encourage them to play!  And nobody should be forced to perform the result of a roll of the dice if they don’t want to.  A fun approach, when somebody refuses to do what “the dice say” is to tell them they have to leave Spanky’s…. and come back in two minutes and can come back and try again (the last part will confuse them… and then they’ll smile)
  • There should always be hand sanitizer visible and accessible to all SWB patrons
  • There should also be at least one big water cooler at the bar… with clean ice in it!  Remind patrons to stay hydrated!
  • Offer water to any patrons who seem to have had too much alcohol.  It’s illegal to give more booze to somebody who is already drunk
  • When welcoming patrons, and checking their IDs, let them know about the Rules of Consent and Rules of the Bar… which should be posted prominently at the bar.  Let them know to report any violations to a bartender, security, or any member of the camp
  • Be familiar with the layout of the bar and the location of all the bar supplies
  • The vibe at the bar should be fun, but not overly rowdy. The scene should be sexy but not creepy/sleazy. If things get out of hand, nothing stops a ‘bad scene’ faster than killing the music. If you need help with unruly customers, let the bar manager know.  And there will be “SWB Security” available to help. Know who the Security personnel are during your shift.
  • Always have a lighter or two and there should be ashtrays on the bar. Please empty the ashtrays often, but be very careful not to dump hot embers into the trash
  • Know where the fire extinguisher is and know how to use it.
  • There will be a “bar back” (or two) during each shift.  Bartenders should read the job descriptions for their bar backs.
  • Keep the bar and trash organized. There will be two types of trash cans at the bar, one for general trash, one for recyclables. Use them properly… make sure others are too.  Empty and crush all cans before putting them in the recycle trash can.
  • Be mindful of your “pour”.  We have a limited supply of wine and other alcohol
  • There is a “Lost and Found” area in the bar.  Know where it is.  Place any left-behind items in there.
  • Learn the proper procedures for the coolers.  There is a system for making sure that cold drinks are served.
  • Ensure that there is always cold beer and white wine
  • NEVER use your hands to get ice that will be served in drinks.  Contaminating the ice is a health code violation… and gross!  Always use a scooper.  All drink-ice must come from Bman/Arctica.  There is ONE cooler with only ice in it… this is the one for drink ice.  Nothing else goes in that cooler.  It must be sanitized daily (or as needed)
  • We don’t ever serve fresh squeezed juice… health code violation.  (store-bought juices and mixers are OK.)
  • Don’t serve drinks in used cups (unless it is the customer’s personal cup)
  • There are cleaning supplies behind the bar.  Clean messes as they happen
  • The last shift of the night is responsible for cleaning up the bar, surrounding bar area, and hiding the alcohol.
  • Remind guest bartenders (read: Naked Bartender – dice game) to follow all the bar rules.  Supervise them!
  • And once again…CHECK IDs!!! 

Prerequisites: none

Report to: Bartenders first. Bar Manager second (Disco Tits or Captain Obvious) second. Camp Bitch third.  

Objective:  Keep the logistics of the bar flowing smoothly. Make sure the bartenders have everything they need at their fingertips.

Shift Duration: 4:00 hrs

Hour of operation:

4:00 pm – 8:01pm, 8:00pm – 12:02am, 12:01am -3:00 am

Equipment Needed:  Your sexy ass!

Duties:  You are the face of the deviant dice game. Anything that is rolled that needs a SWB staff member to facilitate will be done by you ie:  spanking, flogging, flaming enemas etc.  Engage with our guests in a way that makes them want to keep hanging out & invite all of their friends back to the best fucking bar on the Playa!

Duties: 

  • Bar backs need to know the whole job description for Bartenders.  Please read all of that.
  • The bartenders are SWB’s “front line” personnel.  Your job is to make theirs easier by not letting them get bogged down in resupplying/stocking, cleaning, logistics, etc
  • You may also be asked to help-out bartending from time to time
  • Make sure the bartenders have full wine bottles ready (with our wine labels already on them). Use funnels to add more wine to existing (labelled) bottles
  • Put new labels on wine bottles as needed (we have SWB labels that are humorous)… only put new labels on the bottles when the old ones become damaged or unreadable. Don’t put bottles with our labels in the coolers as the ice/water will ruin them. Chill white wines in the coolers with the existing (real) labels, then funnel the wine into the serving bottles (with our labels) as needed.
  • Make sure your hands are clean when working in the coolers!
  • Coolers need to be periodically drained of water, and fresh ice added
  • Keep the trash/recycling organized. As cans fill up, pull out the bag and tie it off with a twist-tie. Then put a new bag in the can. All aluminum cans should be crushed and stored separately so we can bring them to recycle camp the following day.
  • Once any general (non-recycling) trash bag is full and tied up, it should be distributed evenly amongst village members for disposal after the event.
  • Keep the bar top free of trash/junk, clean and organized. There are cleaning supplies located under the bar. Use disinfectant spray as needed.
  • Keep the supplies under the bar neat and organized. If we are running out of bar supplies (cups, cleaning products, etc) alert the Bar Manager.
  • Keep the ground surrounding the bar free of trash.
  • Do not leave a messy, sticky bar for the next shift to clean.
  • Act as a “go-fer” if the bartenders need anything else.
  • Report any violations of the bar or consent to the bartenders or SWB security

Prerequisite:  You must have minimum one year SWB experience to do this job.

  • Periodically check on generator fuel levels and contact  SPOOGE (Olaf ) or SEX (Dano) if the gennie needs filling (1/4 tank or less)

Shift Duration: 8 hours

Hours of Operation: 12:00pm-8:01pm, 8:00pm-4:00am

Equipment Needed: Your ass, Paper/Pen, Flashlight, and a desire to learn.

Prerequisites: A good sense of humor and a strong level of attentiveness

Report to: Camp Bitch, Bar Manager

Objective: To ensure the safe and fun consumption of Spanky’s ‘Front of House Attractictions’

Description: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to monitor and operate our front of house attractions. This means that you will operate the spank-o-matic, keep an eye on the buffer zone, provide  general assistance to our trigger operators should they require a wee break, and as you are likely to be an initial point of contact with people entering the bar, to give our patrons whatever directions are necessary for their enjoyment of our facilities. In the same vein, it’s imperative that if you see anything that needs to be brought to the attention of our security staff that you do so. You’re a key part of our eyes and ears. 

Shift Duration: 2 Hours, last shift 3 Hours

Hours of Operation: 4pm-6:01pm, 6:00pm-8:01pm, 8:00pm-10:01pm, 10:00pm-12:01am, 12:00am-3:00am

Equipment Needed: A personal flashlight, adequate training, a thorough knowledge of the goings on at camp

Duties: Your main duty is the operation of the SPANK-O-MATIC. Make sure you have received training, and get some asses all nice and rosy! This will take up the lion’s share of your time, as it is rather popular.

Your second duty is to monitor the goings on at the buffer zone. You’re really there for two reasons, to make sure everything going on is consensual and groovy, and to make sure no one is getting their hair caught in the buffers by not covering their body adequately before getting their buzz on. If such a thing does happen (god forbid), understand the safe operation of a screwdriver such that the issue can be addressed. Keep an eye out for creepy or unsafe behavior, but in a relatively passive way. If patrons need additional instruction on the buffer zone, provide it, but you’re there to spank not buff. 

If you are on the late shift, your duties will officially terminate at 3AM, but you are expected to assist the bar staff and security with closing up the house for the night–basic cleaning, making sure the lights are off, etc.

Prerequisite: None

Reports to: CAMP BITCH. SECURITY TRAINING ALSO AVAILABLE FROM WEBSTER, AND DANO.

Objective:  To protect the village, its members and customers. To guard private spaces.

Shift Duration: 8 hours

Hours of Operation: 12:00pm-8:01pm or 8:00pm-4:00am

Equipment Needed: Flashlight, security vest, SWB radio, a talent for diplomacy

Duties: We do a variety of things, but the most important is just ‘keeping an eye out’ and exercising good judgment about whether something requires our intervention, and intervening if necessary. 

Unlike many jobs at spanky’s an amount of sobriety is required while you’re on shift. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but you have to be able to respond in the context of an emergency. 

Security’s main job is to ensure that Spankys is a safe, consensual, and healthy environment. Security makes sure that there are no under-age persons drinking alcohol or viewing “adult oriented” scenes in the village. Also, to ensure that the dancers and mistresses are not being harassed by anyone, and guard private spaces when there are private scenes happening that are not open to the general public.

Security’s job is not one of violence or harsh confrontation, but rather, one of DIPLOMACY and REASON. If any situation escalates to a threat of violence, Security should immediately attempt to contact a BRC Ranger or law enforcement. The only exception to this rule would be an imminent threat to somebody else’s safety, at which time Security will immediately announce over the radio “Code Black!,” and your location, and attempt to gain assistance of any Spanky’s management person around. At that point, any Spanky’s management on their radio will come to Security’s aid in an attempt to stop any ensuing violence from occurring.

Photography is not allowed in the public facing areas of camp. Security should be on the lookout for and must ask patrons to delete photos if taken without permission of everyone in the photo. 

If we need to find Rangers, have Spankers fan out into the street to find nearby rangers, while at least one person goes to the nearest Ranger Station. Stations are at Center Camp, 3:00 Plaza, and 9:00 Plaza.

Security should know where to find:

  • Water – at the bar, headquarters, and kitchen

  • Minor first aid and sanctuary – next to the kitchen – Solar is the head this year

  • Spanky’s Lost & Found – at the bar

  • Major Medical problems – Rampart Nearest Ranger Station – Stations are at Center Camp, 3:00 Plaza, and 9:00 Plaza

  • Fire Extinguishers – bar and in Eve’s kitchen

Additional Security Procedures

  • Encourage anyone who had too much to drink to get some water

  • Be alert for people openly doing drugs or, and if found, politely ask them to stop.  PLEASE DON’T ASK TO SHARE.

  • Should know who the art car drivers are in case we need to use one for an emergency such as transporting someone with an injury

  • Can ask DJ’s to make important security announcements – such as “Happy Monday” if law enforcement is in camp or asking patrons to move their bikes

  • Can recruit any Spankers or bartenders to help watch someone if they appear suspicious or are getting too drunk

  • Keep an eye on all the camp bondage gear so that patrons don’t walk away with it

  • About once each hour, wander around camp for dangerous situations to make sure there is no exposed rebar, wires people can trip on, passed out burners, and shine flashlights in dark areas – that’s where bad things can happen

  • About once an hour ensure that the streets surrounding Spanky’s are free of bikes and art cars so emergency vehicles can pass through.

  • Have the DJ make announcements for patrons – bikes or art cars need to be removed from the road (this happens almost every night).

  • Can recruit other Spankers to help move bikes if needed

  • Set up a perimeter for fire performances

Duties – General:

  • Periodically check on structures, toys and other equipment for safety and security

  • Periodically check on generator fuel levels and contact Olaf or Dano if the gennie needs filling (1/4 tank or less)

  • Welcome any new Spankers (village members) as they arrive at Bman after Tuesday. Let them know that the first thing they should do is be officially “Greeted” by one of our DOCENTS, or Amethyst, or Dano.
    From Sunday through Tuesday morning, DOCENTS will greet Spankers as they arrive.

  • Check in with other SWB managers (learn who they are) to see if they need anything (Bar, MOD Squad, Dancers, Kitchen/Sanctuary, etc.)

  • Know how to handle and report emergencies. Cooperate with BRC Rangers and/or Law Enforcement if a situation arises

  • Wear vest while on shift. Return equipment to SWB HQ at the end of your shift if it’s the end of the night. Otherwise, pass equipment on to the next security person.

  • Inform Webster (head of security), Disco Tits, OR Captain Obvious (bar management), or Dano of any emergencies

Shift duration: 2 HOURS

Equipment needed: Blue Tooth tablet (supplied), instructions, and ride operator lanyard. Optional: Sexy Cowboy/Cowgirl outfit. ASSLESS CHAPS ENCOURAGED.

Duties: Once the rider mounts Trigger the Wonder Saddle, explain to the rider the correct riding position to get the most enjoyment during their adventure. You will be trained to help the “rider” find the right position. POSITION IS VERY IMPORTANT.

Explain the controls and then turn over speed controls to the rider. Once the rider has tried out the variable speeds of the saddle, then you the operator can switch control over to a blue tooth tablet. The APP has pre-programmed patterns to choose from. The tablet can be controlled by the operator, the rider, or someone designated by the rider. (Ex: boyfriend, girlfriend, stranger, person in the crowd, or anyone the rider chooses)

Note: Some riders will enjoy the crowds’ participation and some will be quieter. Follow your rider’s direction. Some riders like to ‘put on a show’ and others tune out the crowd. When the ride is over, make sure the rider presses the RED STOP BUTTON and this activates the school bell and flashing beacon. Encourage the crowd to clap and cheer for the rider.

Consent: Per Spanky’s Wine Bar Rules, photos and video are NOT allowed. Exception – only when the rider gives consent/permission. Make sure other people in the photo zone give their consent also. ONLY THE RIDER CAN GIVE CONSENT to being photographed or videoed. (EX: I am his/her friend, partner, campmate…) That is not consent. Only the rider can give consent.
