Last Saturday, around fifteen guys gathered at Cooper Anderson’s home to hear Papa Tony from FetishMenSanDiego talk about how their new group has grown so very quickly and brought a whole new level of energy, fun and brotherhood to the fetish scene in their city. The experience was so incredible and motivating that many folks wanted to meet again and brainstorm about how to make a similar mark in Palm Springs.

To that end, attendees Stefen and Ray have invited everyone in DFA to join them for a Potluck Brainstorming Session at their home this coming Saturday, November 17 at 5:00 pm. Here are the details, taken from an email message from Stefen:

“No worries if someone is a tad later than six.  We will eat and mingle till after 6.

We will barbecue some chicken. You all can bring side dishes and salads. We’re not fans of dessert, but we won’t say no if someone wants to bring one.

We will supply water, Vitarain and Diet Coke. If someone wants some other beverages, by all means bring it on. Also, we don’t drink alcohol, so if you want to imbibe please bring your own. Smoking is allowed on our patio which has a delicious view of Mount San Jacinto.

First and foremost, the intent of this gathering is to create an informal brotherly environment where we can spend some time getting to know each other!

Afterwards, we can each share our interest in how we’d like to contribute to DFA and then brainstorm some ideas and action steps.  I will be happy to facilitate to keep the agenda moving. I will need someone to take notes.”


To get directions, please RSVP with your name and the number in your party to Stefen at Also, if you can help Stefen by taking notes, please let him know!

Major thanks to Cooper for hosting last Saturday’s gathering and to Stefen and Ray for hosting this weekend. It’s exciting to see our group continue to grow!!!
