An open question forum with a Massachusetts Attorney on the intersects of BDSM and the law (this is purposely open ended as the intersects can range from Criminal to divorce and everything in between). Typical Issues of discussion are: What is consent under the law?, how does my being kinky affect me in court? What do I tell me Doctor about my bruises?; What should I tell the police if they want to talk to me about bruises, kink, or anything?; whatever you bring

The New England Dungeon Society held it’s annual meeting on Friday, March 10. Unfortunately, there were not enough active members in attendance to form a quorum, and we were not able to hold an election to fill the vacant Service Board seat. In accordance with the bylaws, Article VIII, Section A.2, the current elected member will continue to fill the position until their successor is elected. At the upcoming service board meeting, we will be electing a new Executive Board (as per Article IX Section A). Since an election was not held at the Annual meeting, I will propose that the incoming president form a proper nominating committee, set and announce a date for a special election as one of their first acts in office.
Railen, NEDS Vice President

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

Class description: What do you do if you are in the dungeon and want to do a bit of wax play…most times nothing as dungeons typically do not allow fire or flame. Well this class/demo will focus on wax play that can be done without the use of flames. It will cover safety, types of wax usable and not, ways to change the look or feel of the wax, equipment and techniques for applying wax to the body and of course removal of wax.
