FMSD Calendar of Events as of 3 May 2015


FetishMenSanDiego has a NEW MEETING SPACE to use every Wednesday except for holidays and special events.

For the 6 May meeting we are test driving a new schedule.
Doors open at about 6:30pm so we can socialize
until 7pm and then start the Discussion, Instruction or Practical topic. Depending on how the evening is going we'll stop 
around 8:30pm and have more social time until 9pm.

Please let us know what you think of this new time allocation. 

FMSD Calendar of Events as of 3 May 2015
While our group is going through changes in management, we are trying out new, better ways to get news out about upcoming events in a timely fashion… without so much work!

The calendar below CHANGES, so if you come back to this same page later on, the information will be updated.

You can also subscribe to the FMSD calendar, so that the events show up on your portable device or computer, and will update within seconds if changes are made on this end.


This newsletter focuses on details of events that occur in 
San Diego and includes many events in the Southwest, 
as well as some major events in the country
