Friday's Discussion: Uncommon Pervertables

This week's Discussion Group will feature a show-and-tell topic called Uncommon Pevertables. Bring your favorite items from dollar, hardware and thrift stores that can be used for BDSM/Kink play. Stuff like paint brushes, toys, cooking utensils, etc... Show your DFA Brothers how imaginative and inventive you can be!

Our biweekly Leather/Fetish Open Discussion Group gathers every second and fourth Friday at 7:30 pm in the LGBT Center of the Desert’s Food Bank space, located behind the Sun Center at  610 S Belardo, 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 Wednesday: 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.
