I won't reveal the name, but just got an email from a dungeon I have enjoyed discussing how they face an uncertain future and how tough the lockdown has been on them and how they're hamstrung between providing a very personal service while remaining "socially distant". But $200 as a donation could keep them operating for the long term.
Here's my thought..... a BDSM dungeon is not exactly affected by local policies because it operates in secrecy. It does not have to abide by restrictions imposed within the state. I would consider donating, but..... a few issues....
1) if they actually feel they have to abide by state policy, they're stupid and I would not donate, they should continue to operate
2) If they are worried a client would turn them in if they kept operating, what have they done not necessarily as a business, but as citizens to lobby and demand an end to this social distancing nonsense and lockdowns?
3) If they believe that they still need to socially distance, they deserve to go out of business. I have zero sympathy for that kind of thinking. There are dommes who will continue sessioning and my thought process is more in line with theirs, so I will see them.
I hope the place survives, but I won't cry if it doesn't. Not that hard to paint a couple rooms red in a place and get some BDSM equipment and young women.
