Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between the Contracts?

We have tried to make each contract as flexible as possible to accommodate any type of dynamic. For this reason, we ended up making the terms and conditions the same in each contract, so you won’t miss out on anything by selecting one over the other. You just choose your titles that you go by.

The M/s and TPE Contracts used to have stricter rules, but we realized this was too inflexible.

If you have a little dynamic, there are some versions which will have an optional schedule for little mode at the end of the Contract. This will be specified by having the word “little” in the title of the Contract.

What are the format options?

There are three formats available:

Digital Only

  1. Digital Contract – which you may customize and print yourselves.

Hard Copy Formats

  1. Template Hard Copy – a printed template which you fill in by hand (same as the digital versions);
  2. Custom Hard Copy – you receive a digital template which you may personalize to your needs, then upload and have your interior printed in the hard cover of your choice.

Are BDSM Contracts legally binding?

No. Please read my pages on enforceability and the law.

Can I use the Contract multiple times?

You may use the contract as many times as you like if you intend to have multiple partners. You do not need to purchase the contract again each time. It’s best if you save the original digital files and work on a fresh copy with each new partner.

Do you offer wholesale?

Yes, you may apply for access to the wholesale area here.

We also have an affiliate program where you may earn commission on the digital contracts and hard copies as well.

Where can I get legal advice?

A good place to find a local attorney is to search the Directory of Kink Aware Professionals. Just click “Search the Directory” select the category “Attorneys” and your location, then click “search”.

We cannot recommend any one in particular.

What will show on my credit card statement if I purchase your products?

Your credit card statement will state: “PAYPAL *JOVIALPBLSH”

There will not be any mention of this website on your credit card statement.

Am I being scammed?

Please read our page on online scammers.


I have reached my download limit, what do I do?

For security reasons, you may only download each document 10 times.

If you exceed your download limit, please reply to the order confirmation email (or contact me here with your order number) and I will send you fresh links. I understand this happens sometimes and I certainly don’t expect you to pay and never receive your product.
