MEN'S DISCUSSIONS


The Men's Discussions have been shifted around a bit.  The actual discussions start at 7PM every Wednesday (except for October 31, which will be canceled due to extreme trick-or-treating). If you arrive one hour early at 6PM on any Wednesday, you can be a contributing member of the team that is coordinating plans for upcoming events.  This is where the real power in San Diego's FetishMen Tribe resides!

Since we now do this every week, the Men's Discussions are as follows:

- First Wednesday: Open Discussion. Bring your questions and your issues so that we can help you out together.
- Second Wednesday: Themed Discussion
- Third Wednesday: Themed Discussion, hosted by Jeremy.
- Fourth Wednesday: Hands-On Demos, hosted by Mr. San Diego Leather 2012 Aaron.
- Fifth Wednesday (if any): Open Discussion. In 2013: January, May, July, October.

The huge, wildly wonderful BELT Party  is STILL ON for October 27th at 10PM, but it has been moved across the street to the FLAME at 3780 Park Blvd

I love this venue - It has a back room and bar, which features a very nice stage for kinky demos (flogging, paddling, bondage, mummification, and so much more) performed by FMSD's new PLAYERS sub-group all night. We WILL be interviewing new applicants for the PLAYERS list (Tops and bottoms, all experience-levels), so bring your A-game and be PLAYFUL!

Read the review of the last BELT party, and imagine yourself in the middle of everything, full of joy and brotherhood.
