Review: SWITCHES Discussion, Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Here are the handsome men who raised money for charity 
last night at the Harness Party at Numbers Bar. 
From left: Keith, Eli, Aaron, Paulo and Jay.

Eli and Aaron started a wonderful new and very welcome tradition of gathering used gear and toys, and then offering them up for sale at the Harness Party, benefitting various local charities. It's a great way for the rest of our Tribe to add new gear at an excellent price. 

Now, more men are joining the team, and having fun while they do it! Contact Eli at eliseocorreaiii if you have gear or toys that you aren't using any more, and would like to donate. 100% of the profits help local charities.

As you can easily guess from the flawless quality, the photo was by Scott Smith.

From Papa Tony:
This last weekend, I participated in the Mankind Projects' New Warrior Training Adventure. I CANNOT praise it highly enough.

I found out that the work that I've been doing to create brotherhood, acceptance, mutual support and growth here in our wonderful little sub-sub-culture has been going on in a much better, more-focused way worldwide for decades. I'm thrilled that I have finally found it.
If you want to know more, please let me (or Magnum) know of your thoughts and questions. We absolutely support your ongoing growth and happiness!

 ======= UPCOMING EVENTS=======

Wednesday, March 19th, 7-9PM: FMSD Discussion.

From Papa Tony:

The topic will be "Handing Away the Car Keys", where I give away all remaining traces of control over FetishMenSanDiego, with love and honor to those who step into my place.  It's a glad time, and a great opportunity to shift things into new directions.  I’ve been a community leader for 33 years, and that’s plenty.  I can relax and be supportive of the wonderful men who are here to take my place, and in THEIR own way.
