Pain: An Instant Panel
We’re planning to explore pain through multiple lenses, including (but not limited to) S/M, D/s, endurance players, folx who don’t like pain at all, and more.
What’s an instant panel? As people arrive, we determine who might be interested in being a “panelist” and who would like to ask questions/be the audience. Everyone gets to participate, and the facilitator acts as moderator.
One goal of the Third Friday Discussion is to ponder why, in an atmosphere of respect for all the different perspectives in our community. Please join us!
Coffee • Loose Leaf Tea • Vegan and Gluten Free Menu Items • Free Wifi • Freshly Made Pastries • Salads • Sandwiches
We’ll pass the hat ($1-3 suggested donation) and purchases support our venue but are not required.
Self-identified women 18+ are invited! (You decide whether we’re the group for you; more information on our front page.)
Accessibility: If you are able to step on or over a 1″ high “lip” in the ground, you can enter through Bare Bones Bar’s side door on 29th St and travel completely on the flat (although with somewhat narrow doors) over to the cafe.
ASL interpretation: If you advise us two weeks in advance, we will do our best to have a kink-friendly ASL interpreter join us for the evening.
Smoke break: There are chairs for smoking directly out front.
There will be a pansexual social after the discussion group for anyone who would like to gather and chat at Bare Bones Bar next door.
