Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) schedule regular meetings on topics that pertain to their Interest. There have been many different Groups at TES over the years, covering many different Interests. The following Groups are currently inactive until in-person classes can resume:

Bondage Group
There are many reasons why we like bondage: control, beauty, or just because it feels good. Rope, leather gear, metal, pervertibles or a combination, we explore practical and safe methods of restraint.
The group is currently led by BoundtoFly.

Dominant Men/submissive woman’s Group
The Dominant Men/submissive women SIG group was the pioneer TES SIG group and has been in existence for over 15 years. Meetings are geared to meet the needs of those who identify as Dominant Men and submissive women.

Dominant Women/submissive Men’s Group
The Dominant Women/submissive men’s Group is a safe, creative and fun place for novices, beginners and experienced alike.
