March will be the annual members meeting. We will be reviewing the our financials and several Board members are up for reelection.
We need as many members as possible to attend. Remember this is YOUR organization. Have your voice heard.
After the meeting Switcher will be presenting Kink 101:
KINK has been around for years, but with the advent of the Internet it has become much easier to find out about it, find events and dive into the whole ‘scene’. This access has been received with mixed results – some have been overwhelmed, some have been merely whelmed with all the terms and activities they have read about, heard about or experienced. Let’s take a few minutes and look at some of the realities of this and see how we might have fun and not get in too much trouble while doing it.
Bio:Switcher has been around since before the invention of dirt. Rumor has it that he is the culprit that actually invented it, but I digress. He has hosted a munch in the Greater Boston area for several years, as well as vending at the New England Fetish Fair Fleamarket, Kinky Con and other events. He is a member of NEDS and The Society and a regular attendee at NEDS events

See you there.
This class will cover the numerous ways of engaging and appreciating feet and their sexual, sensual, social, psychological and spiritual dimensions. Subjects of fetishism/partialism, massage/reflexology, adornment, footwear, foot worship, dominance, communication and foot play will be addressed. The presenter seeks to share an important (and sexy) pedular appreciation to build understanding and skills around one of the most prevalent sexual fetishes and universal symbols of human cultural identity. An interactive class, we will bring highlights to foot smell, topping and foot torture. Yay!
P.E.T.E. (Pedular Enthusiast Ticklee Extraordinaire) has been a long-time tickling enthusiast, a proud foot fetishist, a member of BDSM and tickling communities, on-line for 16 years, and off-line for ten. He has taught classes for many of New England’s kink organizations and the first classes ever taught at Club Hell in Providence, RI and Hubba Hubba in Cambridge, MA. P.E.T.E. is also an instructor for the Kink Academy and has a number of instructional videos on their website. He co-facilitated numerous tickle play events for Tickle New England!, a group that he created in 2006. P.E.T.E. co-founded New England Feet also to create local opportunities for community, support, information and safe connection for foot fetishists and the recipients of their pedular attentions.
NEDS Presents: Beat Me With a Feather- Sensation Play Primer
Sensation play is often overlooked in BDSM and dismissed by sadists as “fluffy bunny bdsm”. However, sensation play can often be more evil than any cane.
Sensation is more than just “stingy v. thuddy”. It is about using all kinds of sensation (and even lack of sensation) to contribute to, or even to become, your scene.
This presentation will explore your senses, give you ideas on how to combine sensations, how to mind-fuck with sensation and how to use all kinds of sensation to enhance a scene. Some fun games to play with sensation will be shown, and we will also show you how to use easily obtained commonplace items as sensation toys.
Feathers are optional.

Oh my, STI’s! Are they really out there!
Sexually Transmitted Infections truly do exist and if you are sexually active and/or play with bodily fluids then you are at risk.
Please come join me (along with justDerek’s sarcasm) in an in depth conversation about Sexually Transmitted Infections and how they effect us in the BDSM lifestyle.
In this class we will discuss:
Quick overview of some of the most common STI’s.
When and where to get tested.
How to communicate with your provider and what tests to ask for.
The effects on us and the ones we interact with and care for.
How to effectively communicate with your partner(s) about testing and STI’s.
We will also discuss some common and not so common forms of protection (examples will be available to view and touch). When it comes down to STI’s, it’s actually quite simple. Protect yourself, your partner(s), and your loved ones. We are all adults; therefore, we should all practice self responsibility and take all steps necessary to keep ourselves and each other safe.
So come on down and let’s expand our knowledge together to help foster safe and healthy interactions. Please feel free to ask questions and/or share your experiences.
See you there!
MOD NOTE: It’s also our annual meeting so we’ll begin promptly at 7:30 pm sharp! Thank you! – NsV

Chastity is one of the most intimate, controlling, and powerful type of play around. Chastity really brings the entire 24/7 fantasy to reality. This class will cover all aspects of chastity play ranging from Tie & Tease to Lock & Leave. Together we will define what a chastity device is, what it can do in a relationship, and how orgasm control and chastity are related but separate at the same time. We will also talk about different chastity devices, the pros and cons of each type, general health issues, and more.
Jillian is one of those unique presenters that you have to experience. She has a quick wit, dirty mouth, and keeps you entertained the entire time. She started playing in bondage when she was a young child, using rope and handcuffs with everyone. She later found the public scene in 1997, jumping in with both feet. In 2000 she was the host of the infamous play party in Attleboro, Massachusetts that was raided by police. This became known as “Paddleboro” (the police considered a wooden spoon to be a “dangerous weapon”). In 2005 Jillian founded Locked in Steel, makers of chastity belts and stainless steel bondage items. Jillian sold the business in 2009 and now enjoys traveling to events around the country, meeting new people, and playing with her wife as much as possible.
Holidays cause extra stress in everyone’s lives. There are additional expenses, the calendar is full of commitments and the weather is cold and dreary. People that are in non-monogamous relationships have additional challenges to overcome.
Topics will include:
Managing your poly-family calendar(who is going where when)
Pros and Cons of being out to your non-poly family
Budgeting for gift giving, travel, etc
Group Brainstorm about solutions to poly struggles around the holidays
Key ways to relieve stress and anxiety around the holidays
Suggested reading for general poly topics
This session will be geared towards polyamorous relationships, but will likely have value to all structures. The focus of this session will not be a 101 poly class or a how-to, but resources for newer practitioners will be provided.
