Mailing Lists and eGroups

WARNING: While these mailing lists still exist some of them might have fallen into disuse or become clogged with spam.

  • BDSN San Antonio Controversy: A mailing list for uncensored, frank discussions of controversies in the Central Texas (especially San Antonio) B D S M scene. (BDSN is not a typo. Yahoo considers "BDSM" as profane language and will not permit it in the name of a group or in a group's description.) Unlike the old "BDSM San Antonio (Civil)" mailing list, name calling and flames are acceptable on this list so the arguments tend to be heated and personal.
    Yahoo! eGroups: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BDSN_San_Antonio_Controversy/
  • Gay San Antonio on FetLife: A BDSM/Leather forum for the LGBT community in San Antonio area. Any discussions are welcome as long as respect for each person is maintained.
    FetLife: https://fetlife.com/groups/44727
  • San Antonio Crimson Moon Society: a new group created for local kinksters interested in the art of spanking.
    FetLife: https://fetlife.com/groups/50592
  • SAS/M Kinky Klassifieds: a Yahoo! eGroup created to better serve the BDSM community's needs in San Antonio and surrounding areas. This group's function is for people to place ads for things they need, want, or can do -- advertise things you have for sale, kink or non-kink related. It's really up to the user. However, no professional ads will be accepted for sexual services (either giving or receiving) or listings for pro-Dom/mes or pro-subs. Other Personals will be allowed. No flaming or Spammers will be tolerated.

Scene Friendly Local Night Clubs and Bars

While this site includes listings of bars and night clubs -- some of which are known to feature "Fetish Nights," "Dominatrix Nites," and other scene friendly events --- the web master does not condone playing while under the influence of alcohol or any other mood altering drugs (with the exception of chocolate.)  Whether playing on top or on the bottom, being impared adds an additional element of risk.   Please play responsibly:  Know with whom you're playing, negotiate, use safewords, play within your skill level, and (if a DM is not available) have a friend monitor your scene.  And please understand, just because someone looks like they know what they're doing, doesn't mean they do.  (For more advise on safety, please visit this site's Health and Safety section.)
