In this informative and entertaining class, scene veteran M.Christian discusses basic BDSM safety, what should be in your emergency kit, basic human anatomy, chancy play techniques, STCs and other biological risks, how to try to expect the unexpected ... and more!

Class from 8-10pm, doors open at 7:30pm

Monday: Polyamory: A Discussion/Support Group @ SF Citadel


Polyamory is – not to state the obvious – complex. But what is even more challenging is that it is still not wildly accepted, with those in non-monogamous relationships often finding it difficult to find understanding and support. In this discussion/support group, polyamorous individuals and couples will have a nonjudgmental and supportive environment to share their concerns and experiences.

Monday, June 22, 2015 · 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

SF Citadel: 181 Eddy St, San Francisco, CA
Cost: $10
Dress: casual

You're welcome to pack snacks/dinner and munch during the discussion!
