question about internet websites, and its impact on our Lifestyles... [Oct. 20th, 2005|11:25 pm]
Community for BDSM in Ontario

With the US government instituting a Vice Squad again, I have a question:

What kinds of laws are currently on the books for Canada/(ontario) that govern/guide website content?
IE: "bestiality, urination, defecation, as well as sadistic and masochistic behavior"

Since, obviously BDSM contains most/many of those aspects, usually consensual, how do we share our photos? are we going to have to resort to "private home parties" spoken about the watercooler with hushed voices? or Is canada already "nipping it in the bud" with their own rules, and if so... what are they!?

Personally, as distastefull as i find some material, I find it an amazing act of Ignorance on the greater part to censor like that. Hate groups should have the right to at least publisize their views online, Just as much as Religions should be allowed to broadcast their television shows, and Kids get their cartoons on Saturday morning! So should the pornographers.

Yes, crack down on the kiddy p0rn, the necrophelia, heck even the 'long pig' and 'snuff' product. since i personally believe death of any kind but 'natural' should be carefully concidered and monitored.

but, as far as sharing information, stories, facts, fictions, photos etc,... WHY oh WHY are we censoring ourselves? Unless the Powers that be, don't want the masses to become self-actualized!?

anyways, just my thought/question...

Everything to do with Sex Show - is back [Oct. 20th, 2005|10:57 pm]

Well its back, and so apparently is the "Ontario's Community Dungeon" hosted by Freestyle Kink

I'm kind of wondering who might be going to this show, the place opens at 11am and goes till midnight - there is even a 30 minute BDSM 101 seminar in the evening, as well as a host of other seminars which are to various degrees interesting (though not 100% kink related).

Well take care everyone.

Toronto events and munches [Oct. 14th, 2005|01:44 am]
Community for BDSM in Ontario

Well now that the summer is over things are starting to get back in gear here in Toronto, with many munches re starting, and events taking place.

For the remainder of this month, the following events and munches are happening that I know of for Toronto...

*DSSG Toronto Munch on Tuesday, October 18, 2005 - starting at 7pm Located at The Ben Wicks Restaurant and Pub 424 Parliament St. Toronto, Ontario

*The Corporal Caucus on Wednesday, October 19, 2005 - starting at 7pm - Location: The GROUNDHOG PUB, at the back of the main floor. Ask at the bar for the 'internet group'. ... (not sure if this group is still active, as its been a while since I attended an event with them).

*BENT! Toronto Play Party on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 - starting at 8:00PM - 1:00AM at the Vatikan, 1032 Queen Street West (at Ossington)

There are a few other events and munches taking place as well, but for the life of me I can't remember what ones they are (mostly cause I don't attend them myself).

But at any rate the events and munches are back and one can easy say there is something to do each weekend if you look.

PS remember that the Everything to do with Sex Show is next weekend (October 21st to 23rd), several people from the local community will be in attendace I'm sure :-)

well take care,

An Introduction: This candle is lit. [Oct. 13th, 2005|12:56 pm]

(Some crosspostings in the internet void.)

Hello all. My name is Christopher Crimson, I'm a new addition to this LJ group, and thought I would introduce myself.

I'm an experienced Top who has been largely out of the scene community for some years, and am recently blowing on those embers again now that I'm in the Greater Toronto area. I have a loving and wonderful partner, and she and I enjoy a passively-polyamous relationship. We have yet to attend any fetish, poly, or related events in the GTA together, although we've been seen at related events in the States. In time, we hope to meet some of you at socials or playparties in this region, even if only to make new friends to share sordid and adventurous stories with over enjoyable meals. Details about myself follow for those who are interested; for everyone else, accept this simple wave hello. Looking forward to sharing with you.

Who is Crucifurcifer?Collapse )

new community venue [Sep. 2nd, 2005|05:41 pm]

Ottawa has been holding it’s breath… for Breathless! It’s finally here! The dream of many is at last becoming a reality.

For quite some time, Ottawa has been hoping for a dedicated play space to open it’s doors. Others have tried it in the past, but for different reasons haven’t stayed open long. We hope this time will be different!

The concept for Breathless is a bit different from other clubs of the past, in hopes that by catering to many different alternative lifestyles it will stand the test of time.

Modelled loosely after a similar centre in the states, Breathless is an “alternative lifestyles Community Centre” that concentrates on the education and exploration of these lifestyles. This is done thru workshops, demos, discussion groups and various social events which are open to the public. Each caters to different interests. These events are relatively inexpensive to entice those who are interested in joining us, and some are even free!

Breathless is also a Private Club, which will host events for different interests each weekend. Attendees must be a Member to attend these events. In this way, we know that everyone who attends has a genuine interest in our lifestyles, and isn’t able to drop in off the street to stop and stare.

To become a member, one must be known to the owner, or by someone who is already a member who will vouch for them. If not, then it is highly recommended that they attend some Community Centre events and become known to others. Once we’ve established eligibility for a membership, each person must attend a Membership Orientation, a seminar that is about 60-90 minutes long and will explain everything you need to know about the club and your membership, including rules, etiquette and expectations as well as the perks of your membership. There is also time at the end for Q&A’s and a tour of the facilities. The yearly price of membership is $30 per person and is payable at the Orientation. To complete your membership, you are required to fill out a brief membership form (which must be kept on file) and sign a waiver. That’s it! Once completed, you are free to attend any and all Members Only events that interest you.

Some events are gender-specific or for couples only, so be sure to check for those restrictions for the events you’re interested in.
Now, what alternative lifestyles are represented at Breathless? What kind of events might you see, you ask.

Well, we hope to incorporate just about any interest we can, but to start, we’ll have various events, both public and private for the BDSM and fetish communities, as well as a monthly Guys Only night and Lady’s Only night for the GBLT groups, nudist nights and swingers nights. We’ll also work in sex positive events such as massage nights, and whatever else we fantasize about! If there is a topic or group you’d like to see on our calendar, please feel free to drop us a line with your ideas and suggestions.

There’s a couple of ways to see what’s happening at Breathless. You can check out the website at www.BreathlessOttawa.com for information and event listings, or you can stop by the club itself and check the calendar there. We will do our very best to keep both calendars up to date but please understand sometimes mistakes happen or events are cancelled or changed without much notice.

And while Breathless is owned by one person, it will take many helpful volunteers to make it run smoothly. Please consider volunteering a couple of hours each month to help keep costs down. If we have to hire employees this will only drive the cost for membership and events higher, which no one wants. You could consider doing your volunteer time at an event that is not typically your own, that way it doesn’t cut into the time you can spend at an event of your choosing.

After many months of agonizing over details, and weeks of physical labour and a depleted bank account, we are nearly ready to open our doors to you, our friends!

We hope you’ll attend the Launch of Breathless at some point over the 2 day open house on Fri. Sept. 9, and Sat. Sept. 10. Over the course of the 2 days, we will offer a couple of Membership Orientations as well, one on each day so you’ll be ready to start attending Members Only events right away. Watch for the Launch announcement soon, and put us on your calendar.

So here we have it, a chance for our very own space. Please be generous with your time and help make it a success!
