Austin Scene Parents (ASP)
Austin Scene Parents will have a play date on Nov. 7th at 2PM. We will be at the Central Market Playscape on North Lamar. All parents are welcome and you can find us by looking for the "ASP" sign. THIS IS NOT A "BDSM Play" event. This is for parents to get some social time with like minds and for our kids to enjoy each others company.
I originally tried to start this group as a babysitting network, but I don't think that's what the community needs. I think we really just need a parent support group. So, I'm going to work harder to make that happen. If you're interested in joining, please join the list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/austinsp/
I'd love community involvment and support to help me understand where this group should go and how we can help parents play while keeping our kids safe and happy. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments!
Please feel free to crosspost this to those groups I've missed. Current Mood: happy

I am new to Austin and I'm looking for a good group that has lots of workshops, etc. I have heard bad things about some groups and others... well, I haven't heard enough of anything.
Any suggestions? I am a Dom and would like a place that's open to ALL kinds of kink. I mean, I want an open-minded place where it wouldn't be shocking to see crossdressers and/or transgendered among the crowd, as well as the many other kinks around. Is that even possible??

Economic stimulus check
So our stimulus checks are coming in, and I thought I'd turn around and pump mine back into the economy by giving it to a hard-working local dominatrix.
I'm trying to find domme listings for the city of Austin but I'm not having any luck...do you know where I can a good listing or a few good dommes in this city?

Hello everyone. I'm new to the community. I just started a new live journal because my old one had to much bad juju along with it. I'm 24 years old and have lived in/around Austin most of my life. My boyfriend and I are relatively new to the lifestyle. I've been to one Gwnn meeting a few years back and the only experience that he has is with me.
I guess I just wanted to say "hi" and I hope to learn more about the lifestyle. I've been away from it quit a while (well, I wasn't really in it) and could use some info on maybe classes or meet ups around town where we could enlighten ourselves.

I actually live in Los Angeles, but my sister lives in the Austin area and was seeking information on reliable, well-behaved, informative BDSM clubs/groups/organizations. She is very new to the scene and I am trying, long-distance, to help her find her way without any mishaps or bad experiences. Are there any useful emails, phone numbers or physical addresses that anyone here could pass along for her to contact regarding workshops, meet&greets, etc.? Her internet access is spotty at best, so avoiding that is best for her, but I'll take what I can get. That would be most helpful and much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

There is no charge to view this wonderful collection.

If so, you don't want to miss this opportunity to view the extensive collection Vi Johnson has brought to Dallas that includes, literature, books, displays, video, DVD, and much more.
Vi, a well respected elder of the community, noted author and lecturer is here in Dallas this week as the Keynote Speaker at Beyond Vanilla XVII being held at the Dallas Sterling Hotel September 28-30.. Her library will be on display at the hotel all weekend for those registered for the event. If you haven't registered yet for the event, there is still time to do so. Please see our website at www.beyondvanilla.org.
Don't miss the opportunity to see things that you might not have the opportunity to view again. This is like having part of what the Leather Archive and Museum in Chicago offers and more, right here in your own backyard. Allow yourself time to bask in a wonderful display of our collective history.

I am working on a study about spirituality and Leather, and I am looking for people who are lifestyle to contribute their opinions and beliefs. If you're interested in reading about it and possibly engaging in dialogue with other members of the community, please check out my page.

i have read screw the roses and SM101, and i found them to be helpful introductions, but now i'm interested in finding more advanced material (preferably related to D/s stuff). i don't need to know how to tie knots or wield a whip or anything technical like that... does anybody know of any books that outline possible scene ideas or give more of a specific how-to approach?
would anybody want to review bdsm books they have read (whether or not it relates to what i'm specifically looking for)? i bet it'd be helpful to new people like me. thanks!
