The Resource Pool

Presents the Last Workshop Before Our Annual Summer Break

A Two-part Workshop By Lady O

~ ~ Part 1. CBT Play ~ ~

This workshop highlights some of the different activities that can be done with boy bits. Bondage, tease and denial, urethral sounds, clips and much more come to mind. Hygiene, safer sex issues as well as aftercare are also discussed.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Is CBT not a topic for you? Then arrive at at 3 PM for Lady O's next topic:

~ ~ Part 2. Etiquette in the Scene ~ ~

Dictionary Definition: “Etiquette is a code of behavior that delineates expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group.” What is expected in the BDSM scene? Come learn what will help you navigate groups and events, and what will make your kinky life easier and more successful.

Announces The Next

~ ~ "TESTING THE WATERS" Munch ~ ~

~ ~ To be held from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at a local restaurant ~ ~

Are you a newcomer who is curious about the real-world (as opposed to online) BDSM Scene, but privacy concerns have deterred you from attending workshops, such as those put on by The Resource Pool, or associating with local BDSM groups?

TESTING THE WATERS, a division of The Resource Pool, has the solution! A number of our experienced and knowledgeable BDSM players, male and female, plus some relative newcomers, will gather for dinner at an excellent local restaurant in the Bethesda, MD area between 6:00 PM and 7:30 PM on Saturday, May 2, 2015. They will be happy to answer your questions concerning the local BDSM Scene and "what is this BDSM thing all about, anyway?"

Join us! There is NO ID REQUIREMENT and NO DONATION for this event (we ask that you be at least twenty-one years of age), and you need not have attended any TRP workshops to participate. RSVP to Mister Bill during the week preceding the munch to obtain directions to the restaurant. You will be expected to pay for your own dinner, and (as we will do) to dress and behave inconspicuously in this public venue.

Please send your RSVP and any questions to Mister Bill.
