Godless Perverts Social Club

We're now having Godless Perverts Social Clubs twice a month -- third Thursdays as well as first Tuesdays!

Community is one of the reasons we started Godless Perverts. There are few enough places to land when you decide that you’re an atheist; far fewer if you’re also LGBT, queer, kinky, poly, trans, or are just interested in sexuality. And the sex-positive/ alt-sex/ whatever- you- want- to- call- it community isn’t always the most welcoming place for non-believers. So please join us every third Thursday of the month at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s renowned BDSM-themed coffee house, for an evening of conversation and socializing. All orientations, genders, and kinks (or lack thereof) welcome. There’s no admission, but we ask that you buy food and drink at the counter, or make a donation to the venue. Wicked Grounds serves dinners, light snacks, and beverages.

The third Thursday Social Clubs are a little more structured than the more casual First Tuesdays — we pick a topic, let people know what it is ahead of time, and have a moderator/ host who leads the discussion.

    I'm finally going to be able to make it to the next Thursday gathering (though I'll probably arrive fairly late). Looking forward to meeting all of you and hearing the next topic. There are some godless perverts in the East Bay, too. Any interest in meeting there sometime?

      Looking forward to having you there, Leslie. We're not doing any official events in the East Bay yet, but I live in Berkeley. I wouldn't mind meeting up with people sometime.

      I actually live n the Oakland/ Berkeley border myself. I wouldn't mind being part of a satellite group. We just need Wicked Grounds to franchise, it would be odd to meet without nudity and toys on the walls.... :)

    Greta, that sounds like a great topic. I'll bring my "Where ya from" religious and sexuality opinions regards differences between rural, urban, and suburban, also eras, e.g. the 70's and... whenever.
    My only concern is safety, walking to and from BART to Wicked Grounds.
    I am willing to pop for gas and toll if anybody would like to car-pool.

      I agree with Mike. It seems like a safe area, with lots of foot traffic/ potential witnesses to dissuade trouble. The walk back is in the dark, but several of us head to the BART. Safety in numbers.

      Rod, I can tell you that I walk in that neighborhood all the time, including after dark, and feel reasonably safe. But of course you need to do your own risk assessment. Hope you can make it!

    The topic for July 17 - “So, Where Ya From? Local Differences in Sex and Religion.” Community standards of religiosity and sexuality vary across the map (and with race and class even in the same place). Tonight’s moderator is a Yankee who spent most of his school years in the suburban South. Where have you lived, and how did the people there regard their religious and sexual norms — and the people who deviated from them? Are you from New England? Costa Rica? Did you live in Texas? South Africa? Were you a military brat? Did you grow up in an immigrant community? Come tell us about your experiences!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
