TES-TiNG, TES’s group for young adults, aged 35 and under, is like Conversio Virium’s big sister; a sexy, incestuous big sister who coordinates with us on parties, demos, discussion groups, and kink-related mayhem. Now we urge our members to come show their support at TNG’s summit forum:
Is TNG, still relevant? Does the need for such a SIG still exist? Does TNG still serve the needs of its young members…, and the larger leather community? Or is that need now being met by local college BDSM groups? Please join us for this important meeting, where we hope to discuss/answer these questions, as well as develop ideas and strategies on how to reenergize TES-TNG. We are very honored to have Boymeat and Josh Hightower, our TNG founders, to discuss the history and growth of TNG, as both a local and national entity…and to give a special reading of Boymeat’s 2007 Rio Grande Leather Keynote Speech.

I am considering visiting one of the many establishments in NYC where one can purchase BDSM-related services. I am a complete novice to these activities but I am very interested in learning what they have to offer.
However, I am very concerned about the legal status of these businesses. Is it indeed legal to visit one of these places? Could one be arrested for being there and engaging in the fantasies that are described on their websites?
â€”Considering a Pro
Dear Considering a Pro,
Dungeons are indeed a legal enterprise in NYC. While prostitution is illegal in New York, commercial dungeons do not offer sex as a part of the services you may purchase. To define it more clearly: it’s legal to masturbate yourself, but the provider can’t do it for you.
So to address your concern, no, you should not have to worry about being arrested just for being at a dungeon or for paying to practice BDSM. Just remember to follow the code of conduct of the establishment, don’t solicit sex, and respect the boundaries of the provider you are spending time with.
