April Community Roundtable in Chicago


LRA_Logo_frontCHICAGO – This month our Roundtable Committee is inviting kink community novices to join the seasoned veterans for an open dialog about the kink lifestyle.

Saturday, April 18th

Ever since 50 Shades of Grey hit the internet, then the bookstores & finally the big screen, the once closeted BDSM life has been attracting media attention & drawing more & more curiosity as well as people exploring their sexual fantasies. Those of us that have been living in the BDSM life/community before this media surge have been thrilled by the idea of more mainstream acceptance & the numbers of our community growing.

However there is a constant discussion of concern & a bit of anger over the concepts & misconceptions that the 50 Shades series present to its audience as typical ways of BDSM lifestyle. This Roundtable will cover these misconceptions by offering everyone the opportunity to partake in real discussions about BDSM.

We would like our seasoned members to join us in sharing, educating & welcoming our new community members or the kink curious in what will surely be a stimulating night of conversation (cause as we all know the biggest sex organ is our brain).

For this event our 3 peer groups will be joining together as one body. The facilitators for the peer groups will be present as usual to help guide and engage participants in this joint discussion.

You must be at least 19 years of age & must have photo ID with you.

To R.S.V.P., please e-mail club-services@lra-chicago.org. Address will then be provided.

**5:30 is an earlier start than usual, to allow for orientation & opportunity for more Q & A time.

Also, be aware that LRA is wheelchair accessible.

There is no cost to attend this event. (Members of GD2 and LRA, however, should bring their membership cards.)

The Roundtables are co-sponsored by Galleria Domain 2 (GD2) and LRA for those involved in a chosen lifestyle or who are simply curious to meet, share and learn in a safe, controlled & private environment. Come on out and share with us your knowledge, ask your questions, or maybe even meet someone new to the lifestyle.
