Dear Readers...

December 8
*** Please note new time for D/s class! ***
We changed the time so we can all go and enjoy the Fetish Flea Market after the class. So why not make it a pervy, kinky pre-holiday weekend in San Francisco. A bit of brunch with your partner, playmate or friends. Head over to an exceptional class by a well respected East Coast presenter. Then shop for great pervy toys and socialize with other kink folk. Take your toys and head to a play party to test them out ... still have energy? Well, there's a play space open until 4am for those of you laaate night adventurers!

"Rebuilding After a D/s Relationship"

"This is a class for both dominants and submissives. When a D/s relationship ends, both doms and subs can feel purposeless and lost.
A sub has the challenge of reshifting their primary focus from someone else to themselves and assuming decision-making responsibilities that may be new.
A dominant has the challenge of rethinking their decision making process with a refocus on their own priorities without the mitigating presence of another to consider.
This class will talk about the grieving process and outline effective coping methods and ideas on how to restructure one's life without encountering pitfalls such as rebound relationships."
Cost $20. Doors open 11:30 am to noon. Class noon to 2:00 pm
Location: 848 Community Space, 848 Divisadero Street San Francisco, CA 94117-1506 (near Fulton Street)
