Novice & Newcomers Group

Welcome Newbies!

Regardless if you are a brand spanking “newbie” (person just discovering BDSM) or just new to TES or the public scene, THE NOVICE & NEWCOMERS GROUP is for you!

The SIG CO-Facilitator’s are Gigi and meatcandy.  They host monthly educational seminars, workshops and frequent social events geared to the BDSM (Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism) newcomer.  Their number one goal is to provide you with a safe, friendly atmosphere where you can get the answers to all your many questions as well as learn both the physical and mental fundamentals of BDSM!

What happens at a TES Novice & Newcomers Meeting?  We start the evening with an approximately hour long presentation, then we take a short break and come back and do the famous TES Circle. This is where we all sit in a circle, introduce ourselves briefly (or not if your shy) and ask questions or give feedback on the presentation we just saw or any other thing you’d like to talk about.  At the end of the meeting the SIG facilitators are available to answer any other questions you might have.  After the meeting many of the members go to a local restaurant for a snack and some more good conversation.

So what are you waiting for?  Life is short! Get off your butt and come on down!  You’ll be amazed at how welcome you’ll feel.  Throw on some comfortable clothes, write down all the questions you want to ask and get ready to meet a wonderful group of safe, sane consensual loving people who can help you find what you are looking for.  Although our meetings are primarily for the novice, they are open to everyone, so bring a friend, a stuffed animal, a hand puppet, come alone, whatever it takes!!!  We promise you won’t regret it.  Remember we were ALL newbies once!

Still too shy? Have an immediate question you need answered?  Just drop us a message at!
