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 active:


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 facilitated by Dov and Sapphire.

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.
The group is facilitated by Ramon and Jinx.

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. Dominant Women can share experiences and learn how to better express their dominance, while submissive men will have an opportunity to be around dominant women without fear and be able to feel welcome, ask questions and get answers.
