WesKink is a group for any Wesleyan student interested in kink, BDSM, non-monogamy and polyamory, or any other alternative sex/relationship practices. Our meetings provide a safe space for discussion of these topics open to people of all identities and experience levels. Together we learn about the wide variety of things under the kink umbrella, and how to explore those things safely and consensually!
Like all our meetings, this is open to the campus at large! Everyone is welcome, regardless of interest or experience level! This meeting will focus on defining kink and providing an idea of what WesKink is all about. We’ll pass around some toys, talk about kink, and get to know one another. Snacks will be provided!
Can’t make the meeting but interested? Email wesleyankink[at]gmail[dot]com to get on the listserve!
