Return to Joria Studios
Starting in March 2014, our weeknight classes and some workshops will be held at Joria Productions, located at 260 W 36th St, New York, NY 10018 (between 7th and 8th avenue) on the third floor. This should come as good news to those of you who prefer the proximity to Penn Station, easy access to public transportation at 34th Street and ample street parking. We'll be able to accommodate larger meetings, our potluck socials and certain events not allowable in other spaces, all at a favorable rate.
Thanks to those of you who traveled with us downtown, and to those of you who first joined us there in the previous 12 months. We hope to see you all at Joria, as we continue to expand our programming choices in a more central location.
NYC Fetish Film Festival
We are excited to announce that TES is proudly producing the NYC Fetish Film Festival, which will be running June 6-8 at The Producer's Club in Manhattan.
This event features three full days of films focused on kink/fetish/BDSM, panels regarding lifestyle aspects touched on in the films, filmmaking workshops, Q&As with filmmakers and actors, and an awesome Opening Night Reception with lots of special activities planned.
In conjunction with the FFF, we are also holding an Erotic Art Show, in order to further support and nurture kinky artistic expression. It all adds up to a weekend that is not only sexy and fun, but that strives to be in line with the educational mission that has always guided TES- our goal is for audiences to walk away more knowledgeable about kink and the positive role it plays in many lives. Proceeds from this event will go towards TES and its events, including TES Fest.
The TES NYC Fetish Film Festival is currently accepting both FILM and ART submissions. Deadline for both is 4/30/14.

TES Fest is the annual gathering for the BDSM and sex-positive communities to celebrate the steps TES's founders took in 1971:
the opportunity to find our freedom.
TES Fest is the premiere event in the NYC Metro region for everyone (from amateurs to seasoned veterans) to socialize,
learn new skills and simply have a great time.
With classes and special events covering the gamut of topics and special interests,
TES Fest allows people to explore, educate and entertain themselves in a healthy, safe and sane environment.
