New England BDSM/Alternative Lifestyle Groups

Social, Support, and Education Groups and Organizations Throughout the Region

(All descriptive information taken from the group's websites)
 

Note:  If you do not see a particular group listed her, it is for one of three reasons:

1)     We are unaware of the existence of the group - in which case, please write us, and we will gladly add your group to our listing.  :)

2)     A group has been deemed 'unsafe' by not following the rules of SSC or RACK, and therefore we do not, in good conscience, recommend it.

3)     A group does not agree with our politics, support work, or outreach work, etc., and wishes not to be associated with us.

If you have any questions regarding the above, please feel free to contact us at: CUFSmaine@aol.com

Northeast Erotic Spanking Society: Waltham

The Northeast Fetish Group:  Northeastern, USA

The Northeast Fetish Group was established in the fall of 2003 for one very fundamental purpose ... quite simply put, to provide a safe and comfortable vehicle by which fetish-inclined persons can enjoy convenient and non-threatening access to a wide variety of educational events and social opportunities across the entire northeast region.

The NEFG defines the northeast as all six of the New England states, plus New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

The major distinction between The Northeast Fetish Group and so many other alternative lifestyle organizations is simple ... we consistently go "above and beyond" to ensure we are always compliant with both the legal and social expectations of the communities in which we gather.

If your interests happen to lean more toward participating in events and activities which are a bit on the overt, flamboyant, or exhibitionistic side (as offered by many other organizations), then let us be absolutely clear; the NEFG is most likely not the best support organization for you.

However, if your genuine purpose is to participate and socialize within an organization made up of "common-sense" members, and guided by a sound and prudent leadership team, then please ... do read on.

By browsing through these pages, you'll learn more how the NEFG can support your educational desires, as well as your social expectations!

United LeatherFolk of Connecticut:

Welcome to the ULC site. Our club is a friendly, informal social/support group for men and women who practice erotic dominance in its many forms.

ULC is an honored and respected Connecticut friendship club for BDSM men and women of all orientations. We offer mentoring, counseling, hands-on workshops, socials, play parties, and a genuinely warm and welcoming environment. Open to adults over 18, couples and singles are all welcome. Practitioners at all levels of development and involvement will find here, among us, a nurturing, no-politics haven of mutual respect, peace, and lively fun.

We meet on the first Saturday of every month, at 7:30 PM, in a private location. All participants are pre-screened and our meetings are not open to the public.

Our philosophy is simple: we believe that bondage and discipline, fantasy role-play, sensual sadomasochism, erotic "torture" etc. can be a satisfying part of a well-balanced life. We believe that B&D, D&S, S/M activities can be a positive part of a loving relationship. We assert that dominance practitioners are as deserving as anyone of life's joys, and we unite to help each other to claim those joys.
