Tuesday 7/27 at BR: Emotional Edge Play - Polyamory for BDSM/Leather/Fetish Folk w/Anita Wagner
Emotional Edge Play - Polyamory For BDSM/Leather/Fetish Folk With Anita Wagner'

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 At 08:00:00 PM
Duration: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Cost: $5 members, $10 non members and guests
Location: Hyatt Regency Hotel 400 New Jersey Ave NW Washington DC

Today polyamory is widely practiced in the BDSM/Leather/Fetish communities. Stretching our emotional boundaries via exploration of our kinks is part of the thrill for many of us, yet some say they were caught unprepared for the amount of drama that arose when they introduced polyamory into the mix. In a very real sense polyamory is a form of emotional edge play by which we seek to stretch our emotional boundaries around partnership, sex, love and romance.

• How does being into BDSM/Leather/Fetish prepare us for establishing happy polyamorous lives?
• How does the practice of polyamory in kinky relationships differ from vanilla polyamory?
• What are the common pitfalls of living a kinky poly life?
• What are polyamory's universal truths, and how are they best applied in a kinky poly context?

All of these ideas and questions will be explored as we discover what it takes to establish and maintain happy and healthy kinky polyamorous relationships, families and networks.

Anita Wagner is a passionate polyamory advocate, blogger, spokesperson, educator, and sexual freedom activist. Through her website and blog at practicalpolyamory.com she provides useful resources that focus on subjects such as making peace with jealousy, managing poly/mono relationships, and poly-friendly therapy. She co-founded Chesapeake Polyamory Network and The Institute for 21st Century Relationships, which is the foundation of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, where she also served on the board of directors. She has presented educational programs on polyamory to CAPEX, at Good Vibrations, Sex 2.0, Dark Odyssey, Transcending Boundaries, Poly Living, Black Rose, and Loving More® Retreat, amongst others. Her upcoming schedule includes workshops for Galleria Domain 2 and The Floating World, where she will also host a polyamory meet and greet Friday night and hopes you will stop by.

Closing out the Summer Season...

It seems that the scene has witnessed a true resurgence as of late…

Indeed, this new found revival appears to carry a very real sense of possibility & a feeling of anticipation for what the future may hold. Like the phoenix rising from a period that was caught in relative obscurity, there seems to be a new level of stature that's beginning to quench the thirst of many & usher in a new era.

What's Going on in August...
 

Often as seasonal heat hits a high note & people hit the road for one last beach break, August usually ushers in the dog days of summer & a bit of a lull in the annual calendar. But plan your weekends well, for there's a great deal happening in the coming month & if you'll still be in town then you won't want to miss out…

I'm in a somewhat unique position, and trying to sort some things (of the queer/kink variety) out, and I was hoping to get some advice/help/whatever you got on how to deal.

The Next Few Weeks Around The Metro Underground...

The coming weeks have so much happening that we've decided to make a special mid-month effort to let you know what's going on.  In fact, why head all the way up to Montreal for Kinetic or England for Torture Garden with such great stuff in the works? Okay, so some of us are stuck in the area. But we can take solace in some great venues right in our own back yard! 

Saturday, 16th - DXS Rapture celebrates one of DC's best underground parties with an unbelievable celebration!  Behind the decks, DJ Wein has put together an all star line up with Dirty-B, London Shadows, & DJ Transept!   Noted Fetish Model Veronica Pierce will be on hand, plus appearances by SLYX Fashion & Dark Electric, as well as a number of noted talent in the scene. Rapture takes place in DC's coolest 'Speakeasy' location (with the look & feel of a completely underground venue, but with all permits in place & legalities fully confirmed).

$35 monthly membership (payable through pay pal) offers full access plus open bar all night long. Doors open at 9pm. Event runs 'til 3am. RSVP at DXSRapture@Gmail.com

Plus a bunch of Really Cool Stuff Under the CutCollapse )

goLEATHER 2009 meeting PLUS!! MAL shopping trip
Hello everyone,

I hope this message finds you well. For those in the DC/MD/VA area, or those from further but willing to come down here, I wanted to announce our next meeting - and the following weekend, a group trip to the MAL vendor market for shopping, or window shopping if you're like most of us (i.e. poor!) The details are below - thanks for reading!
-Ellen

On 1/11, @4pm we invite anyone and everyone who is interested or curious about the group, who may possibly want to be involved in the coming year, to attend a short 2009 planning meeting. During 2008 we've had a great time but we'd love to see a more active membership and we want YOUR input on the direction of the group. Should goLEATHER focus more on community service? More on activism? More on education? More on fundraising? All of the above, or none? If you would like to be a member or an Advocate Member, please join us for this session. If you cannot make it, please email me beforehand if you'd still like to contribute ideas. If enough people are present we will elect officers or take volunteers for positions for the 2009 year. If you've always wanted to have a hand in helping a small group get off the ground, please come and join us.

For more information, email me (DominaSmartass) or check out www.goleather.org and www.goleather.org/dc.htm

Then, on 1/17, come with us on a shopping trip to the MAL Exhibition Hall. It doesn't cost anything to get in and this is some of the best shopping you'll find with so many vendors all in one place. We can plan a meeting time and place but the exhibition hall opens at 10am and I'm thinking we'll go down around noon. I will post updates as plans firm up.

goLEATHER is active online on LJ, Fetlife, and yahoogroups. Please join one of them if you would like to be kept in the loop for meetings, parties, and events.

goLEATHER and Friends Holiday Party
Hi Everyone,

Here is an updated invitation now that we've got the date and everything figured out. This is for 12/20 at 6pm. Please message me privately to get the "evite" if you're interested in coming. For more information no goLEATHER please visit www.goleather.org/dc.htm

**************
Dear goLEATHER Members, Advocates, and Friends,

We invite you to come over and party your ass off on the eve of the Winter Solstice. This is an equal-opportunity/non-denominational holiday party but we *will* be playing Dirty Santa. Emphasis on the DIRTY.

It would be our pleasure to have your company on this night. Please bring a food or drink item (sign up in advance) AND if you want to play Dirty Santa, a gift item in the $5-10 range is needed to participate.

Of course, we are encouraging lots of other kinds of playing as well so please bring anything you might need for that.

If you've never visited our Den of Sin, you're in for a great time. We've got such amenities as:
*bondage/suspension frame
*massage table
*Nintendo Wii
*Airhockey Table
*Basement Dungeon/office (haha)
*extra beds
*super-sized porn projection screen
And maybe even with the help of a friend - a Saint Andrew's Cross?

Needless to say, it will be a real shindig...
We can't wait to see you then!

goLEATHER and *Friends* Winter Party
Yes, I'm crossposting - i.e. spamming everyone with this announcement.

goLEATHER is having a winter (holiday...or not) party. The date is still TBD but most likely the weekend of the 13th or 20th (December.)

This is not strictly a goLEATHER thing but a party for all of our friends whether you're kinky, leather, bdsm, poly, or vanilla. Ok...maybe not vanilla. OK, what the hell, you can come too!

If you're interested in coming, please respond with your date availability. Friday or Saturday night, on 12/12 or 13 or 12/19 or 20.

And...not only will this be a social event but play will be welcomed and encouraged. We do have the suspension frame and a massage table (which can be used for much more than massage in case you couldn't guess.) We have beds, sofas, sofa beds, a basement-dungeon thing, a back porch. It's gonna be a shindig.

I'm going to try to have a final date and time picked out by the end of this week so if you absolutely have to come and are not around one of those dates, speak up.

I also want to send an evite so if you see this and you think you'd want to come, send me your real email so I can make a proper invitation.

Join me at BESS Tomorrow Night
Hi Everyone,

One last shameless plug for my BESS class. I'm very excited and honored to be presenting at BESS for the first time so I hope to bring out a nice crowd. The topic is "Young and Dominant?" Description as follows:

When you are new to the BDSM community, especially if you're a young person, it's often taken for granted that you are - or should be - submissive. Many people advocate learning from the bottom up but is that the only way? And what are the advantages and disadvantages of doing it? As someone who started off in the submissive role but quickly realized that it wasn't "me" I would like to share experiences and knowledge with other young people who find themselves called to the side we are not always encouraged to be on. I believe that young people can be responsible, knowledgeable, and skilled dominants but we do have to overcome obstacles - not least of which is the age bias. On the other hand, it's important to recognize when we are ready to be the D counterpart in a D/s relationship and when we are not.

Check out bess-md.org for more info. The meeting starts at 7:30 at
