Friday: Discussion Group

Friday, September 12 is the second Friday of the month, which means that it's time once again for our Discussion Group. In the past, we’ve talked about topics like fantasies, first kink/BDSM experiences, leather families, BDSM etiquette and safeguards, and many other subjects. Discussion topics vary based on the desires of the participants on any given evening. Read more about it on our web site.

The Discussion Group convenes on the second and fourth Fridays of the month at 7:30 in the LGBT Center's Belardo Building (aka Food Bank), located behind the Sun Center at 610 South Belardo Road, Suite 500. 


Friday: DFA Night at Tool Shed

Also on the second and fourth Friday of each month is DFA Night at Tool Shed. It's from 9-11 pm, immediately following the Discussion Group. DJ Luis Cintron spins at this friendly, informal mixer.

The Tool Shed is located at 600 E Sunny Dunes Road in Palm Springs.

Gear up and join us!


Back Next Week: Desert Kinksters Potluck Munch

The Desert Center for Sexuality Awareness hosts this Munch on the third Wednesday of every month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. It was on hiatus for a while, but now it's back!

A munch is a kink social event that is not for cruising, hooking up, or playing. Rather it is an opportunity to meet other kinksters in your area, network, and make friends and connections. It's a place for kink-newbies to talk about their concerns and questions, and for old-timers to show up, answer questions, mentor, and have a good time.

This event is a drop-in potluck for a pansexual crowd of kinksters: every gender and every orientation is welcome. Bring your favorite dish! Dress however you want to (as long as it’s street legal), and come express your beautiful self. We provide paper plates, utensils, beverages. RSVPs are appreciated. Call for more info: 760.773.3463 or email:

The Desert Center for Sexuality Awareness is located at 71-777 San Jacinto Drive, Suite 204, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 (just west of The River). It is above Desert Oasis Healthcare and next door to Planned Parenthood.
