LRA Chicago Presents “50 Shades of Reality”, Sept 22, @ 6pm

CHICAGO – The L.R.A. successor to one of Chicago’s oldest BDSM Social Clubs in furtherance of its mission of providing educational and social opportunities to the Chicago Community proudly announces “50 Shades of Reality.” Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 6pm.

It’s impossible to avoid the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy; they’ve moved well beyond the usual erotica markets and into grocery store book sections, ladies book clubs, and out into mainstream media. Many readers of this series are taking a look at their fantasies around domination & submission, kink, and fetish…and they’re finding that some of the things they’ve been reading about don’t quite work out in the real world as well as they do in the pages of erotica. So, where’s the reality?

Come out to LRA for “50 Shades of Reality” – a guided discussion facilitated by two LRA members who are familiar with the fantasy of the book as well as the reality of BDSM. We’ll talk about what the book got right – and what it missed entirely. And even better, we’ll answer some basic questions to give you insight on how to get started (or up the ante) in your own explorations!

DATE: September 22, 2012
