CHICAGO – The Roundtables: lively, moderated discussions held in 3 separate peer-based groups – a group for Tops / Dom/mes / Masters & Mistresses, one for Switches, and a group for Subs / Bottoms / Slaves. Each group has its own topic for discussion each month, and is facilitated by regular volunteer moderators who help focus the conversational flow and also provide continuity over time.
These are for everyone- from those who are new to those who are experienced. Whether you’re not sure how you fit in, are interested / curious, or are well-established in kinky lifestyle / play, these groups give you a safe and private emotional space in which to ask questions, share experience & explore ideas. They’re also an opportunity to develop a supportive network, to make new friends in the scene, and possibly to find a mentor.
The Roundtables are co-sponsored by GD2 and LRA, and alternate between the two locations. This month they’re held at LRA.
On the table for February:
Dominant/Top/Master/Mistress TOPIC: “Scene Construction”
Submissive/Bottom/Slave TOPIC: “Mental BDSM”
Switch TOPIC: “Discrete Kink”: “Outing” yourself or others by accident or on purpose & the ramifications it could have. Ways to be discrete about your lifestyle without feeling like you are hiding a “dirty little secret & should feel shame”.
There is no cost to attend this event. (Members of GD2 and LRA, however, should bring their membership cards.)
Saturday, February 21st
