What the heck is this whole POLY thing? Is poly right for you? Join us as we explore the many ways to be poly in the BDSM Scene with the one and only Lolita Wolf.

Electricity – it can be the spark that lights up your night of play. But the price can be overwhelming for mere enthusiasts: top-of-the-line electrical toys are incredibly expensive.

Wed Jan 31 TES-TNG: “Coming Out?” {Open to attendees 35 and younger and their guests.}

Roommates, parents, friends… How do you decide who to tell? If you’ve decided, how do you start that delicate conversation?
