Do you long to express playfulness, creativity, and even adventure in how you experience your body, sex and intimacy?
Unfortunately, society teaches us not to talk about sex or body-based expression. So often even the mere discussion of these topics is frowned upon. Never mind actually embodying those longings or exploring the integration of sex and body-centered play with spirituality and wellbeing.
The Fetish Explorers Forum, in contrast, exists to create a safe place to discover and claim the embodied playfulness that you long for.
We are a friendly group of smart, caring people who enjoy exploring our fetishes and kink in conscious, healthy ways.
This group is open to all who are kink curious or have fetish desires new and experienced alike.
We welcome all ages, body types, genders, and sexual orientations. We don't allow discrimination on the basis of looks, age (over 18 only), or other factors. A minority of our events do focus on specific genders and sexual orientation groups and are clearly marked as such.
The group is primarily focused on BDSM, Kink and Fetish exploration in consensual and conscious ways.
We also welcome a broad spectrum of events that fall under the umbrella of alternative sex and relationship expressions:
• BDSM (Bondage and Discipline, Domination and Submission,
• Sadism and Masochism)
• Polyamory, Open Relationships and Conscious Non-Monogamy
• Swinging, Casual Sex, and Sacred Casual Sex
• Tantra sacred sex and erotic spirituality
• Erotic Hypnosis
• Kink friendly
• Fetish exploration
Consent and Safety
Events offered by this group are led by a variety of different facilitators and groups each of whom is independent. The format of each event varies. Carefully read the event description and ask any questions before deciding an event is for you. Some events are discussion based and others may be experiential. Some may involve consensual touch and somatic learning activities. Our quality standards include the expectation that facilitators ensure that the event description matches what will actually happen at the event.
All activities are done only with your consent which you may withdraw at any time. All participants and facilitators are required to respect the boundaries and behavioral guidelines set for the group experience as well as specific choices of individuals they connect with. Some events have more structure than others. To create a safe space for everyone, our events are not for spectators, and so there may sometimes be specific behavior guidelines for those who choose to not participate in a specific learning activity which could range from sitting in a designated part of the room as a sacred witness up to and including possibly being asked to leave the room. If you have questions, please contact the facilitator of that specific event.
At every point within any event you attend, you need to take care of yourself. Asking for what you want, saying “No” or asking for things to be changed or slowed down is your responsibility if you are not comfortable with what is happening. Remember that no one can read your mind. They won’t know what you need unless you ask. That said, the facilitator can help you if asked and most often the session will include helpful exercises and guidance to support your being comfortable navigating experiential activities.
Meeting new people can be great fun, but at the same time we encourage you to do it safely. As would be appropriate with any community group, please exercise caution and due diligence about who you share personal information with and who you meet with privately, which you do entirely at your own risk.
First, create a new profile that reflects your personality and desired anonymity. Then join us. The experienced and curious share this space to explore, educate and contribute a personal kink to a healthy lifestyle. Meetup offers a variety of privacy settings that you can explore to find your personal comfort level.
In the interest of creating community we strongly encourage, but do not require members to upload a face photo. Please note that nude images are not allowed by the Meetup Community Standards. Anyone in an image must be wearing at least a speedo or bikini.
We welcome people of all genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, economic status, religious and spiritual beliefs.
Our aim is to create a judgment free, drama free group. Thus, members are expected to interact with others - both online and in person - in a friendly manner marked by respect kindness, and clear and clean communication.
Play hard, play safe, and have fun!
