I. Happy Thanksgiving

Let us know a little about what you're thankful for in the comments, or by emailing FetishMenSanDiego@GMail.com
II. Gratitude & Service Social + Potluck
Sunday, November 26, 2017
5PM to 8PM
Location: Hillcrest workshop space, email DoriamFMSD@GMail.com
Cost: Bring a dish to share with the guys, otherwise Free! Donations to FMSD accepted!
The Holidays are a time for us to get together and support one another for all that we do. Many men do not have a place or a family with whom to share the holidays with, and we would like to provide a place where we can all come together and share in each others energy. Bring a friend! As this is a social, there will be no formal hard skill training, and we expect men from all sides of the FMSD spectrum to attend!
This is a Dinner Social and we hope that everyone attending be willing to bring a dish (Meats, Salads, Soups, Breads, Desserts, etc.) to share. We hope men will share their stories and build friendships and that we can all sit together for a meal.
There will be a few men present who will be used as serving trays/tables during the event. Scott, Rein and Doriam will be available to handle donations to FMSD and Ticket Sales for our Men's Party!
III. Male-Only Play Party, Take TwoFriday, January 5, 2018
8PM to Midnight
Location: House of Black, San Diego
Cost: $20/Person, paid via PayPal or in person to Doriam/Scott/Rein
Theme: Interrogation, BDSM Party
Hey look! We did the thing where we're scheduling another Male-Only Play Party!
We are back at House of Black this time around, and have reduced ticket prices, in addition to changing some rules around! This party will be co-hosted by two of FMSD's young up-starts, Doriam & Rein! And while this party is BDSM inclined, all forms of Fetish and Kink are welcome, including Sex Play, Voyeur, etc.
As co-hosts, Doriam and Rein will be kicking off the night with an Interrogation Scene! If you care to know more about these two, here is quick bio for each of them, and what they'll be celebrating at this party!
- Rein (right) will be leaving for grad-school shortly after this party, and is looking forward to going out with a bang. He is a Dominant with a sadistic-streak, and has harnessed his skills in Single Tailing and Flogging with Papa Tony, in addition to adding tools to his play bag from other San Diego players!
- Doriam (left) will be celebrating his anniversary as a part of FMSD at this party. If you've never seen him play, Doriam is a Switch who plays actively on both sides of the slash. He enjoys dynamic Power Exchanges and several forms of Edge Play (including Fire, Medical and Suspension), but is best known as a Rope Bondage player.
We learned a lot from our last party at House of Black, which has inspired several changes for this party. The first of which is the price, we've reduced the cost of this party to $20/person, these funds will be used to pay for the venue, food and (non-alcoholic) drink - any excess will go in to the FMSD Workshop Fund to keep allowing us to host these parties and workshops!
Additionally, we will be allowing attendees to bring their own alcoholic beverages should they choose to partake. We will be required to take some additional precautions because of this, but it should not limit anyone's enjoyment of the event! For more details, email DoriamFMSD@GMail.com.
For this party, I will be needing a few volunteers. Specifically, I will be looking for 2 Bartenders (basic knowledge preferred), 2 Dungeon Monitors, a Door Person, 2 Ambassadors, and ideally 2 people for Setup/Tear Down (each). If you are interested in volunteering, please email DoriamFMSD@GMail.com
More information on volunteering, Here.
To purchase your ticket, please go to PayPal or email DoriamFMSD@GMail.com or FetishMenSanDiego@GMail.com to scheduled a time to meet Doriam/Scott to purchase your tickets in person.
