First Thursday Discussions 7:00 pm
First Thursday Discussions @ Gallery Erato
Oct 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Pan Eros Foundation is pleased to create space for people to meet, talk, and share conversation and ideas. Each month, Pan Eros will host a discussion at Gallery Erato with a different topic to encourage the sharing of ideas and to create and expand communities. Pan Eros means “all love” and we support participants in cultivating and celebrating their sexuality. To support this mission, our monthly discussion topics will range among the educational and artistic realms. Our goal in hosting these meetings is to grow a community that has rich conversations about sexuality. By fostering open discussions, we hope to end the stigma around sex and sexuality so that people may live more authentically and happily. Each month’s topic and host will be announced as they are confirmed. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, and religions are welcome and celebrated. Kindness and a willingness to respect another point of view are expected.

A 10 donation is requested to offset the cost of using the space. Come to a women-centered Rope Enthusiast Group. Practice ties, show off new ties, ask questions about rope practices and issues in a warm and fun environment focused on women tops, bottoms and switches. Or just hang out and socialize! There is a lot of experience here and all the support and encouragement you could ask for! If you knit and want to bring your knitting, go right ahead! It is, after all just really small rope, right? For more information and to RSVP, please see WREG’s FetLife group page: https://fetlife.com/groups/42882?page=2&sp=1 About WREG: This is a peer group dedicated to creating safe, inviting, inclusive spaces for all people to practice, share, and experiment with rope bondage. We encourage peer-to-peer education. All genders and orientations are welcome to attend, be tied, and self-tie. Only non-male-identified folks are allowed to tie others and to teach. We are (still) in the process of drafting a more comprehensive Code of Conduct and Consent. In the meantime, as always, we ask that attendees follow our simple rules (it’s ok if you have a dick or want a dick, just don’t be a dick), and respect the space we’re using. We’ll go over the full set of rules during orientation at ~6pm.

About the Educators: The Consent Academy is a group of dedicated educators and activists who provide quality consent training and consultations. We have come together to promote Consent Culture through education, speaking out, and supporting organizations that want to do better. We talk a lot about consent and consensual activity. It’s the cornerstone of what we teach and who we are. And while that is easy to say, we know that living a dedication to consent takes work, awareness, and a willingness to engage.
