Mission Control is volunteer-based and member-supported community center located in the heart of San Francisco. We host events and gatherings that co-create artistic, sensual, and social evolution. It is a place, a space and a people.
Founders Polly Superstar and Barron Scott Levkoff created Mission Control as a “petri dish” of social experimentation in January 2001. Nine years later to the day on January 1st 2010, after almost a decade of building community in the space, they handed over running Mission Control to the community itself, and from there we have blossomed into a nexus of San Francisco’s diverse and ever changing creator culture.
As an organization, Mission Control is home to special gatherings open to our members and volunteers, with the aim of creating creative connections between people, both within and across a diverse group of communities.
You can become involved with Mission Control by expressing yourself honestly and openly while at the same time remaining open and respectful of the thoughts, creations, and efforts of others.
The Mission Control organization was created by the community through a series of meetings and work groups using the Beauty Engine model. As of January 2010, Mission Control is a membership supported community organization governed by an elected board and run by a dedicated volunteer crew. The Board is made up of nine key leaders including the original founders, Polly and Scott.
Mission Control, the long time home of gatherings like Kinky Salon, Club Kiss and Pink, is taking off as a community in its own right. Mission Control will continue to be home for a variety of creative, open hearted, and sex positive events. Kinky Salon still calls Mission Control home.

Some Mission Control events require a Pal – others do not. You should always read the details of the party carefully. Your MC Ally card can be used for you and your guests.
We use a confidential email list so your email will not be available even to other members. You may elect to be known by a nickname on the list and your card. Mission Control itself is a discreet private venue not open to the general public, and there is no unauthorized photography.
Many of our members do not live in SF but travel here to be together. We have events scheduled every weekend, so we invite you to participate as often as you can. You can stay in touch with the Mission Control community via our member newsletters and at Openly.us.
