SM 201: SadoErotic Ecstasy: BDSM and Spirituality

Presented by Ron Meshanko
(Founder, Men of Discipline, Washington, DC)

Five hours exploring SadoErotic Ecstasy by experiencing group BDSM rituals and discussing your experience of BDSM and spirituality with others, from novice to experienced players. Discover how spirituality can be erotically expressed in your BDSM work. Experience how leathersex and spirituality are intimately combined and lived in various ways by fellow players. Learn how to plan and execute group BDSM rituals. Join us in working three group rituals. After all, isn’t leathersex about permitting ecstasy into our lives?

Ron Meshanko is a positive and highly charged spirit in the body of a disciplined, serious masochist. This former Catholic monk and missionary calls up images of St. Sebastian, patron saint of soldiers, athletes, piercers, People with AIDS, and the kinky. Founder of the Men of Discipline DC, a BDSM fraternity in Washington, DC, Ron is committed to introducing the art and spirituality of BDSM to others. He consistently transforms his fantasies into reality and then goes a step further by mapping out a path that others can follow.

Ron is also the Founder of the Triangle Club in Washington, DC, a twelve-step recovery meeting space for the gay and lesbian community, and the past president of Among Friends, an emergency shelter serving sexual minority persons in crisis and transition in Washington, DC. Ron has also served on the board of directors of Damien Ministries, Sarah’s Circle, and Youth Positive.

Coffee, tea, & juices will be served during the breaks.
