Imagine having a group of people bidding on you, while your heart is beating at record pace from not knowing who will win the bid. Tick tac, tick tac, tick tac…

Ah, the unknown is exciting, isn’t it?….

These auctions are a great way to meet new people! “Osama Bin DOMing,” usually auctions off around 10-12 lucky slaves, switches and sometimes dominants as well.   Everyone who attends the party, will receive auction credits to bid on slaves or Doms.

DSF parties rule and people always have fun; some even met long term partners. For those who never been to our parties before, the management of DSF always tries to match people up. So, if you’re single looking for a play partner(s), or a couple looking for a couple/3rd person, come on down. In addition to having a good time, you just may meet your play or life partner.

DSF parties offer the truest form of SM atmosphere. If you are new to the Ds scene, this is a perfect way to get introduced to it all; in a friendly non pressure situation. In addition to having a great time, you can find playmates and potential partners at all of our parties.   If you are an experienced player, this party will have strict guidelines pertaining to leaving “energy” room for you to enjoy, and most of all, not have your scene(s) interrupted.

NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE About BDSM & Paddles

A Hush-Hush Topic No More

For those who find hostility in the wider world, though, there are plenty of welcoming environments to be found. Inside Paddles, there are black walls and a mural featuring a cartoon woman in thigh-high red boots standing with a stiletto heel on a man’s back. The bar, called Whips and Licks Cafe, does not sell alcohol, but coffee, sodas and Italian ices, giving the atmosphere an unexpectedly wholesome feeling. Opposite it was a display of paddles, floggers and other equipment for sale. The club’s various nooks and crannies featured rigs, chains, cages and benches where participants could pair up and play out whatever “scenes” they agreed upon.

Tucked away in one room, a man and woman were sharing fire play, which involved accelerant placed on strategic points of the woman’s body and set ablaze in short, dramatic bursts. In another area, decorated to look like a dungeon, a middle-aged man was lashing a middle-aged woman’s bare back with a single tail whip. Intercourse and oral sex are not allowed at Paddles, but many people had their shirts off, mixing comfortably without any apparent self-consciousness.

The crowd was mixed-age and multiethnic, and the mood was friendly and upbeat. If you ignored the occasional yelps and moans and stripped away the exotic gear, it could have been a gathering of any hobby group, albeit one where photos were prohibited and participants mostly used aliases.

“One out of five people these days who come to our events are novices who say they’ve read ‘Fifty Shades’ and it triggered something and they wanted to explore,” said a man identifying himself as Viktor, 49, who works in marketing and is a founder of DomSubFriends, a BDSM education group that organized a lecture on jealousy that night. “In the beginning I thought, ‘They took away my BDSM,’ ” he said of the newbies. “But then I thought, ‘No, more people are enjoying it.’ ”

Fetish shops like Purple Passion/DV8 on West 20th Street, which sell rope, paddles and other accouterments familiar to BDSM aficionados, are also getting more visits. “We always had people coming in looking to explore, but now there’s a lot more people experimenting and trying things out,” said Lolita Wolf, who works behind the counter and teaches classes like beginner rope bondage and how to play with needles at the shop.

For those not ready to explore kink in public, dating sites like Alt.com and social networks like FetLife let them do so from their own homes or mobile devices. Founded in 2008 and based in Vancouver, British Columbia, FetLife added 700,000 members last year, bringing its total membership to over 1.7 million, according to Susan Wright, a community manager for the site as well as a spokeswoman for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, a nonprofit group based in Baltimore that is working to raise awareness of kinky people and defend their rights.

It’s understandable that kinky people would seek the anonymous refuge of the Internet; their preferences can be made an issue in custody battles (even if both parents have participated) or contribute to employees losing their jobs. Valerie White, a founder of the Sexual Freedom Legal Defense and Education Fund, a nonprofit advocacy and education group based in Sharon, Mass., points to one man whose ex-wife sought to change the terms of their joint custody when she learned of his interest in kinky sex through his blog (the parties eventually settled).

Ms. Wright said the coalition receives 600 calls a year from individuals and organizations seeking help navigating legal minefields. Founded in 1997, the coalition has lobbied to have the American Psychiatric Association update the definitions of certain sexual practices so they can be depathologized in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual. “We’re perfectly ordinary people except that we like kinky sex,” said Ms. Wright, 49, who is a science fiction writer and has been married 19 years. “We should not be discriminated against.”

The group also maintains a database of “kink-aware” clinicians and spiritual advisers. Some therapists say “something is wrong with you, that it’s a pathology,” said Dr. Charley Ferrer, a clinical psychologist in Manhattan and Staten Island and the author of “BDSM: The Naked Truth.” (That perception is reinforced by the “Fifty Shades’” protagonist, Christian Grey.) “Most people look at BDSM as being abusive: ‘How can you tell someone to beat you and be happy with that?’ Domestic violence and dominance and submission are totally different.”

Guy Sanders, 53, a retired E.M.S. worker and spokesman for the Eulenspiegel Society, a group that bills itself as “the oldest and largest BDSM support and education group” in the nation, has himself been out as dominant for about five years.

“When I told my co-workers, they pictured leather chaps and male submission, when in actuality, there’s a wide range of activities that come under the BDSM umbrella,” he said. “I happen to work in an industry where you’re working with a partner and you talk about everything. Your lives are in each others’ hands. You have a rapport, so it wasn’t difficult to do that. If you’re a police officer or a teacher, all someone has to do is make an allegation and it makes front-page news.”

Many in the kink communities see education as an essential part of breaking down people’s assumptions as well as for creating best practices among participants. The Eulenspiegel Society offers workshops and demonstrations on activities ranging from caning to waterboarding (“Bringing the infamous torture technique out of Gitmo, and into your dungeon,” the organization’s Web site states).

And plenty suggest that the openness and negotiation required by their preferences, far from encouraging the cruelty they sometimes pantomime, make for stronger and more respectful relationships. “You start talking about sex and safety from the get-go,” said Cheri, a 47-year-old divorced mother of a grown child who works in entertainment but who is not out at work and asked that she be identified only by her nickname.

If you saw Cheri sitting at the Tea Lounge in Park Slope, Brooklyn, sipping a chamomile with lemon, as she was during a recent interview, you would have no idea that she calls her boyfriend, a younger man, “sir,” or that he calls her “pet,” a detail she shared with a girlish smile. She described herself as feminist and “an incredibly strong person in my professional life,” but she said she finds comfort in being submissive. “I need to know what you like and you know what I like: I need to know your limits and you need to know mine,” was how she described her interactions with complementary partners. “I think in this lifestyle, relationships develop faster because of that communication,” she said.

Dr. Ferrer said that her BDSM clients tend to be better at this kind of communication. Some couples draw up contracts, something E. L. James dramatized in “Fifty Shades.” “In the vanilla world,” Dr. Ferrer said, you wait for your partner to mess up before you set the rules. “In the dominant/submissive relationship, you’re constantly talking, constantly communicating,” she added. “In the D-S community, there is such a high level of communication that the couples last so much longer.”

Take Deb and Sara (formerly known as Mike), a Brooklyn couple whose first date went so well, they ended up at Home Depot ogling chains and ropes and playing in Mike’s van in the parking lot. Thirteen years later, they are married, and say they explore all facets of their sexuality together, incorporating electricity, knives and other potentially risky tools in what some might refer to as “edge” play, as well as activities like ABDL (adult baby, diaper lover) that don’t necessarily fit under the BDSM rubric. Deb, 55, says she and Sara, 41, are so close they’ve ceased using a safe word: They can sense the others’ boundaries just by breath and nonverbal cues. When she plays with others, Deb, a lifelong Mets fan, uses the phrase “Yankees Rule,” which she could only utter under extreme duress.

But whether Deb, Sara, Cheri, Marie and others will ever be comfortable coming out fully remains to unanswered.

“When I talk to people about being out, I say you have to really think about the fact that once you’re out, even if you quit doing that stuff, it doesn’t matter,” said Lee Harrington, 33, a sex educator and an author (with Mollena Williams) of “Playing Well With Others: Your Field Guide to Discovering, Exploring and Navigating the Kink, Leather and BDSM Communities.”

Mr. Harrington has chosen to live as openly as possible ever since starting out in the kink scene as an underage girl in Seattle. He now lives as a man and said he’s even brought his mother with him to some kink events. He also sees a time when kinky people will find wider acceptance, but isn’t so sure it will happen soon.
